Capitol Hill | Dog Adoption Event

Capitol Hill is a very dog friendly neighborhood, home to many different people that adore their furry friends. So we thought it a great idea to host a dog adoption event at our office. We have great foot traffic and a wonderful community full of big hearts wanting to help provide a home to dogs in need. The dog adoption event is in collaboration with local pet adoption agency, Ginger's Pet Rescue. 

GPR has been finding homes for death row dogs for many years and is now also helping find homes for displaced dogs from the recent hurricanes. They are a pet rescue that is close to our hearts as it is a Community Partnership with an agent (me) in our office and our PMB (Barb Hindle) actually adopted her dog Poncho from them a few years back.

There will be about 20 dogs of various sizes looking for a good home. We hope to be matchmakers
for each dog to their special home and companion Capitol Hill is a very dog-friendly neighborhood, home to many different people that adore their furry friends.

Oregon City | Client Appreciation Night

The Oregon City Office of Coldwell Banker Bain & our Axia Home Loan affiliate held a Client Appreciation Night on October 13th, from 6-9PM. Our brokers invited their past and current clients, and the office invited some of our affiliates as well as some of our recruits. We served wine, cheese, and had a chocolate fondue fountain that was a big hit.Ed Wood of American Home Shield came with his lovely wife. We had approximately 30 past and present clients come and visit with us. It was a big hit, and we have been asked to hold the event twice a year: spring and fall. 

 

Kent Station | Community Halloween

“Halloween at Kent Station” – Community Halloween trick-or-treating for children in the community Took place at Kent Station and each merchant within could participate – (there’s almost 60 total merchants/dining/services in Kent Station). Our branch contributed by participating in the annual Pumpkin Carving contest and our Brokers handed out candy to the trick-or-treaters from 4:30 – 7:00.
This is an annual event that benefits the community directly -  It allows children to trick or treat within the businesses at Kent Station which provides safety in a well-lit area and comfort in groups.  The kids started showing up a little after 4:00 p.m. full of excitement!  Bill Albright, Tony Gregg, Chris Devoe and Tracy Romano all volunteered to hand out the candy and had a great time! The kids were all excited to see “grown-ups” dressed as their favorite superhero! (Tracy Romano was Bat-woman) We ordered 6 large 5 lb. bags of mixed variety candy from Costco and believe it – we ran out of candy! Kent Station reported there were over 2000 trick-or-treaters that came through. It’s a big deal to the community as well as the businesses to be able to “give back”.

Coldwell Banker Bain | Vancouver East & West

In September our 2 Vancouver offices joined up with Habitat for Humanity for 2 separate events. On September 19th we were a corporate sponsor for the annual “raise the roof” breakfast at the Vancouver Hilton. This event is the largest annual fundraiser which brought in over 600 people in attendance and raised over $136,000. On September 29th, 15 brokers from our two offices joined up with other volunteers at the McKibbon Commons development, a 10 lot community in SE Vancouver. The day involved framing walls and interior drywall work. Even through the rain, the group had a successful day and enjoyed the fellowship of other volunteers and the owners of one of the future homes. Each homeowner has to put in hundreds of “sweat equity” hours toward their own home and it was a joy to see the look on their faces as each wall was going up on their new home.

Coldwell Banker BAIN offices in Vancouver have been volunteering multiple time each year with different build days and clean up days known as “Brush with Kindness”. This is a great way for our brokers to give back to the community in which we live and work in each day

 


 

Coldwell Banker Bain | Puyallup

With our day to day busy lives, we sometimes put certain things on the back burner.  Between family and work, life can be hectic and community service sometimes get forgotten about.  Here at the Puyallup office, we decided not only to help our community but the environment too.  We have adopted 3 1-mile stretched of unincorporated Pierce county roads.  Our first road clean up took place September 20th and there were four volunteers from the Puyallup office to help with the launch of our Adopt-A-Road program: Elizabeth Abbgy, Betty Codute, Amanda Woods, and Jennifer Anderson. Passerby's would honk and give us the thumb's up. We collected 7 bags of trash and with those 7 bags an hour and a half commitment we made an impact on our community and our environment. We are doing the road cleanups on a monthly basis and looking for people to help.  We have it scheduled out through December and you don't have to commit to every month.  If you don't want to help with ours you should consider finding a stretch of road to maintain in your area.  For more information on our Adopt A Road program please contact Elizabeth Abbgy or the Puyallup office.

 


 

Coldwell Banker Bain | Everett

And the 2017 Monte Cristo Award winners are…
The City of Everett’s Monte Cristo Awards ceremony was held on the evening of October 12th.  For the second year, Coldwell Banker Bain Everett office was the primary sponsor for this popular annual event.  Created in 1994 by a committee of residents working with the City of Everett’s Office of Neighborhoods, the Monte Cristo Awards program recognizes residents who enhance the attractiveness of their homes and landscapes, and to business owners for the visual appeal of their business locations.

This year the city received 149 unique nominations from members of the community.  Jaimee Hudson, Community Engagement Specialist for the City of Everett said, “This was definitely thanks to the help of everyone at your (CB Bain) office for spreading the word and being wonderful community partners.”  Awards were selected from various neighborhoods throughout the city for four categories: Green Gardening, Neighborhood Friendly Business, Pride of the Neighborhood, Rejuvenation and Transformation and a separate Marian Krell Director’s Award.  Winners received an exterior plaque from Mayor Ray Stephanson for them to proudly attach near their front doors.

Sponsorship of this important program is just one of several community outreach projects that our wonderful real estate brokers at CB Bain in Everett support throughout the year.  We are very happy to have our affiliate partners at Rainier Title join us this year to support this program that recognizes residents and business owners who take positive steps to aesthetically improve this great city!
