First of all, we just have to say how much we love December in Santa Barbara! Every holiday season the Santa Barbara real estate community comes together to celebrate the past year at the gorgeous Coral Casino and Beach Club. This year’s celebration took place on December 1, 2017 with clear blue skies and 70 degree weather. Truth be told, we were in heaven.
We celebrated a little extra this year when the owners of our Brokerage, Village Properties Realtors, won the “Distinguished Service Award”. This honor was given to them for outstanding service to our local Santa Barbara Association of Realtors and our Santa Barbara community. Most years, this award is not given out because the committee is unsure of anyone who meets the criteria. We are so proud that Village’s fearless leaders earned the award.
The award was granted in large part because of the founding of the Teacher’s Fund. Fifteen years ago the owner’s of Village, Renee Grubb and Ed Edick, saw a need for supplies and support in local classrooms and the Teacher’s Fund was born. Since then, the Teacher’s Fund has donated over $1.5 million dollars to our town’s classrooms. It’s a very cool program that helps many many teachers and students. We’re very happy to be a part of the non-profit and often donate our time and part of our commission checks to the effort. If you are interested in learning more, please look at teachersfund.org
We’re proud to be a part of a company with leadership that knows the importance of supporting the community and practices it daily.
