Making transactions meaningful.
We believe people are more fulfilled when they live a purpose-driven life. The human spirit requires presence, growth, and giving.
As you plan your next move, consider working with a REALTORS® Who Shrine realtor. You may also request for your agent to be a part of this process. REALTORS Who Shrine realtors commit to gifting a percentage of a single real estate sale transaction commission to Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California. On average, this is about $3,000 for a typical family home sale transaction.
We request a minimum of 1 real estate transaction per calendar year from an RWS realtor but we find many dedicate more than a single transaction because it’s so rewarding.
Sellers & Buyers: How It Works
1. REQUEST LIST
Start by requesting to get connected with a Realtor Who Shrine certified agent. Agents come from all brokerages and have gone through the process of pledging a portion of a sales commission to Shriners Hospitals for Children.
2. AGENT REFERRAL
REALTORS® Who Shrine will send you a list of one or more highly qualified agents that are expert in your market area and the type of home and amenities you desire. You can also request for your agent to participate in this process if s/he is currently not involved.
3. AGENT SELECTION
Select the agent that you are most comfortable with and start your journey in buying or selling your home, knowing this specific transaction fulfills a much greater purpose. It’s a way for you to give, with no additional money out-of-pocket!
Once you enter this process, REALTORS® Who Shrine will closely track and monitor the progress to ensure your wish is honored in the transaction. An escrow account is opened, whereby the sales proceeds are placed with no middle person involvement.
Congratulations on closing your real estate transaction! As part of the escrow closing process and requirement, the pre-agreed donation percentage is allocated directly to Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California.
6. DONATION & REPORTING
REALTORS® Who Shrine will alert Shriners Hospitals for Children of your gift and will coordinate the proceed distribution to ensure everything is completed. Every gift is made in the giver’s name. This is our way of honoring your generosity to the children’s hospital.
