Real Estate Agents From 4 Local Keller Williams Offices Join To Serve At The Chambliss Center For Children

Monday, May 14, 2018

A sea of red ascended on Thursday as a group of close to two hundred local real estate agents—all in red shirts—served at the Chambliss Center for Children in participation of RED Day, Keller Williams’s nation-wide day of community service. Projects ranging from playground mulch, painting and pressure washing were completed to prepare the local center for their wide array of summer activities.

Part of Keller Williams Realty’s Mission Statement is to create “legacies worth leaving.” RED Day stands for “Renew, Energize, Donate.” Each year on the second Thursday of May, the entire company closes their offices for a day of service in an effort to create legacies worth leaving in their communities.  

“Contributing to my community is an important part of my life and my business,” said Mark Hite, a top-producing agent in the city and a board member at the Chambliss Center for Children. “I enjoy working for a company and alongside other agents who value that service, as well.”

Locally, Keller Williams has partnered with Chambliss Center for Children for more than 5 years. Keller Williams associates have donated time and money to help clean and prepare for the child care center’s summer activities. In addition to those projects, this year agents worked to finish two duplexes on-site for transitional housing as students move out of the foster care system. There are 10 transitional housing units in the Southeast Region, all of which are provided locally by the Chambliss Center.

Many local sponsors joined Keller Williams in the day of service including Jody Millard Pest Control who grilled and served lunch for the team of volunteers. Maryann Azambuja of Choice Home Warranty, RCS Construction, and Jeremy Ames of First Title Insurance provided breakfast.

The four offices have created two public charities called Greater Chattanooga Cares and KWEB Cares to support their own agents during hardship and other non-profits in the community. Each contribute locally and nationally to KW Cares which raised more than four million dollars in grants for KW associates and family members experiencing hardship in 2017 alone.
