5% To Charity - WESTA

I care about what you care about, and I'm putting my money where your heart is! I'm donating 5% of every commission to each client's favorite charity.


Showcasing Garrett's Choice - Westlake and Eanes Science and Technology Association




My daughter, Sarah, connected me with her good friend Garrett who had started looking for a home. We honed in on the neighborhoods with homes in his price range. He wanted something modern and in a walkable neighborhood. I showed him that he could have an older smaller home closer to the city, or a larger newer home just a little further out. Garrett chose a lovely newly built home just a little further out. He and Sarah's best friend, Cierra are really excited to be close to the city and in a walkable neighborhood.


When I asked him which charity he would like me to support, he chose Westlake and Eanes Science and Technology Association in Austin, Texas where he is originally from.

He said, "I support WESTA because they fund and support my high school's robotics program, through which I was inspired and encouraged to pursue a career in engineering. I want to help ensure that the students continue to have the same opportunities as I did, with the hope that some of them will also be inspired to pursue careers in STEM." At WESTA, hands-on STEM learning is not only fun but fills an unmet need for many students who are passionately engaged by this form of project based learning.

When you buy or sell with me, you can support your favorite school, social justice organization, food bank, un-housed neighbor program, veteran group, or anything else you care about. How great is that? What will you choose?
