Golden Real Estate Offers Help to the California Fire Victims

Do you know someone who has lost their home and its contents in a wildfire? Have them call us, because at last week’s office meeting, the agents at Golden Real Estate decided to serve anyone who lost their home to a wildfire, by donating 100% of our earned commissions to them if they want to relocate to Colorado.

We took this action in recognition of the fact that there is insufficient affordable housing stock in California to accommodate all the people who lost their homes, and that inevitably some will choose to relocate to other states.

This offer is also made to hurricane victims and anyone who lost their entire home to a disaster, including here in Colorado. We do this so the family has money to buy whatever they need to kickstart their new life.

If a California Realtor refers a buyer to us, we won’t ask them to donate their 25% referral fee, because they, too, are suffering terribly — and some of them have lost their own homes and even their brokerages.

We invite other agents and brokerages to follow our lead in helping the victims of such disasters.
