Green Key at Rebuilding Together SF Fall Build Day

Our Green Key Rebuilding Together teamThis is the ‘real’ part of real estate.

It’s about the people who dwell in the buildings: where they live, where they work, where they renew.

Rebuilding Together San Francisco logoAt Green Key, we walk our talk about healthy communities. Recently our team lent a some hands to Rebuilding Together SF, a local nonprofit providing critical structural improvements in low-income areas around San Francisco. We refurbished the office space of one the oldest community agencies in the Golden Gate. We woke up, donned our shirts, and got to work painting walls, vacuuming floors, and rolling in new furniture.

A new coat of non-toxic paint can brighten the space while keeping it healthy.

Green Key Commercial founder Carolyn Pistone said, “I was so impressed with all of the other volunteers that were there. It renewed my commitment to creating opportunities for our communities to work together.”

She brought her husband, Marty, and her daughter Brittany to get in on the painting. Look at ’em go!

And there’s Ericka Jennings, our CEO, also representing the residential side of Green Key.

Ericka shared: “We’ve been excited about supporting Rebuilding Together ever since Karen Nemsick, a former Green Key agent, was hired as the Executive Director. It’s a wonderful organization that seeks to revitalize neighborhoods, and foster closer ties, amongst the volunteers, and within the communities. Count us in!”

With the help of an incredible turnout from Arnold & Porter LLP, who also co-sponsored the event, the Green Key team witnessed more than 30 volunteers collaborate and transform a central community hub.

Work like this was taking place all over San Francisco, in homes and workplaces. It even turned out October 27 was National Make a Difference Day, so volunteering was happening all over the country.

We can’t wait until we participate in the next opportunity — at the April Rebuild Day. For more information on how to volunteer, give us a call.
