For the past 37 years, Crye-Leike realtors have been proud to assist home buyers and sellers with all of their real estate needs while also taking some time to give back to the communities they serve.

Each year, Crye-Leike holds a fundraising campaign for United Way. The company’s agents and employees were excited to learn that they helped Crye-Leike collect $64,840 for United Way during the 2013 campaign season.

“Through online donations, bake sales, office fundraising luncheons and many other fundraising events, Crye-Leike associates did a fantastic job of fundraising for United Way again last year,” said Crye-Leike Co-founder and President Dick Leike. “We are proud to have so many realtors and employees who are passionate about volunteering and fundraising for a variety of different charities near and dear to their hearts.”

In each of the nine states Crye-Leike serves, the company’s branch offices and realtors enjoy hosting various creative fundraisers to help the folks in their community who need it most. In addition to supporting Crye-Leike’s annual United Way campaign, the offices enjoy supporting local charities in their communities through activities such as organizing a coat drive for the homeless or inviting the public to a chili cook-off fundraiser. 

“Since first opening our doors in 1977, Crye-Leike has been a company that cares about the communities we serve proudly supporting many charitable organizations including United Way, Youth Villages, Habitat for Humanity and numerous other local charities,” said Crye-Leike Co-founder and CEO Harold Crye. “Crye-Leike is thankful to have so many generous agents and employees who continue to be excited about lending a helping hand to their neighbors in need.”
