A Year of Giving Ends; A 5-Year Anniversary Celebration Begins

“Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?” -Clarence Odbody, It’s a Wonderful Life

This quote from the 1946 classic film perfectly summarizes why we believe even little things add up, especially when it comes to helping to foster a better Boise.

That was part of the inspiration behind Buy-Boise’s sponsorship of It’s a Wonderful Life, during the final Boise Classic Movies event of 2014. In case you missed it, you may click to view our Christmas announcement and end-of-year video.

And, in true George Bailey form, when we reflect upon 2014, I can’t help but think it was Buy-Boise’s best year yet. It feels good that nearly all of my business came from referrals. I value those connections and return client interaction.

Many of our clients have been surprised to learn that the spirit of holiday giving lasted the entire year, at Boise’s fully women- owned and operated independent real estate brokerage. At Buy Boise Real Estate Group, we put time, energy and nearly ALL of the company’s profits right back into the community in 2014, to support organizations that make Boise a better place to live.

2014: A Year of Giving

Buy-Boise Real Estate Group, with support from loyal clients, allocated nearly all their profits to support the following organizations:

  • Silver Sage Girl Scouts (cookies for clients!)
  • Ada County Sheriff’s Association event to support relationships between police and at-risk youth
  • Highlands Elementary Parent-Teacher Association
  • BUGS (Boise Urban Garden School)
  • The Boise Bike Project (BBP), in memoriam of fallen firefighter Mark Urban, and to support their permanent building fund
  • Kinderhaven – North Idaho’s community organization dedicated to supporting children in crisis, so that they may restore a feeling of safety and well-being in their lives
  • Community Cancer Center in Sandpoint, Idaho, dedicated to supporting people who receive a cancer diagnosis
  • A sponsorship of one year of shelter for a person in need at Interfaith Sanctuary

These philanthropic activities are just a few of the reasons why I feel proud to be a part of this dynamic, big-hearted, and generous team.

“All you can take with you is that which you’ve given away.” -Pa Bailey, It’s a Wonderful Life

Celebrations to Follow in 2015

If 2014 is any indication of what’s in store for this year, we believe good things are ahead.

It’s Buy-Boise Real Estate Group’s five-year anniversary! That is a milestone anniversary indicating that a small business has beaten the statistics. We’ll also be paying extra attention to working with sellers at Buy-Boise Real Estate Group. If you’re in the market to sell a home, ask me (or any of my buyers) why now is the perfect time to move forward.

Call for sellers and future sellers – it’s your year!

Let’s talk now and plan ahead if needed. If you’re not already signed up to receive my email updates, I invite you to contact us and I’ll make sure to keep you up-to-date on all the latest real estate happenings in Boise as well as:

If you’re not familiar with Story Time, here is a sneak peek of what you’ll be seeing: one-of-a kind buyer and seller stories that illustrate the home buying and selling process in a fun and unique way.

Looking forward, we expect 2015 to be not only a 5-year celebration, but also another year of community involvement, local thinking and successful buyers/seller introductions. After all, we believe fostering a better Boise really does make for a wonderful life!

We invite you to join us on the journey.
