Coldwell Banker Bain | Seal Community Partnership


We would like to thank all of our brokers and highlight their dedication to enriching their communities. Coldwell Banker Bain | Seal firmly believes that we are the best because of the quality of our brokers and the effort they put forth to giving back to others.

On March 20th a group of 15-20 agents and their family members from our Vancouver East and West branches will be on site to join Habitat Humanity’s “A Brush with Kindness” program to frame a new house. This event will be at the new 10 lot subdivision on Middle Way in Vancouver.

The “A Brush with Kindness” program partners with low-income homeowners in need of exterior home repair. Refurbishing homes has an added bonus of preserving home values in Clark County by revitalizing neighborhoods that have fallen into disrepair. “We enjoy giving back to the community by raking leaves, cleaning gutters and doing minor home repairs…etc.” says John Rose the Assistant Principal Managing Broker for Vancouver East and West Branches.

The two Vancouver offices typically do a few events every year including Build Service Days and Clean Up Days with “A Brush with Kindness” program. They also recently helped to raise $4000 for the program after tools were stolen from one of the job sites.
