We believe in doing the right thing — for our people, for our clients, and for our communities. In fact, we developed our One-Stop Shop model so we could do the right thing for buyers and sellers by giving them the best real estate experience possible. Now we’re using our One-Stop Shop to give back to the community during this critical time.
From May through June, the Baird & Warner Good Will Network fund pledged a $100 donation to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund whenever our clients chose to work with our own Key Mortgage or Baird & Warner Title Services. Thanks to the incredible work of everyone across our company, we pledged $63,200 in May and $75,600 in June. In addition to the the $150,000 donation we announced on March 31, we’ve now donated just under $300,000 to support those affected by COVID-19 across Chicagoland.
These donations help organizations across Chicagoland provide increased access to things our neighbors need right now: food and basic household supplies; rent, mortgage and utilities assistance; and nonprofit safety and operations assistance.
Our agents, loan officers, and staff have always taken great pride in supporting the communities where we live and work, and that have supported us over all these years. Now, more than ever, we’re committed to being there for our clients and our neighbors in need. So when buyers and sellers choose our One-Stop Shop, they can rest assured that they’re not only getting an easier real estate experience, they are making a real difference in our communities.
As Steve Baird said in his open letter: Chicagoland, we’re by your side — no matter what.
