For some, making it out the door on time is nothing short of a miracle. For others, miracles are life-changing events that alter your life the moment they happen. At RE/MAX, our agents make miracles happen every day, through the sale of every home.
When you spot the iconic red, white, and blue sign standing proudly on the front lawn of a home that is for sale, you may also notice a special addition that advertises it as a Miracle Home. Sure, small miracles happen at home every day, but what makes this home so special? That sign rider that stands tall above the sign lets you know that Gary Alberts is not just any agent, he is a Miracle Agent who generously donates a portion of the sale of each home to the BC Children's Hospital.
The Miracle Home Program is more than a way for RE/MAX agents to give back to their community; it is a way for them to build relationships with an organization that positively impacts children’s lives each and every day. In 2015, RE/MAX Agents and Broker/Owners participated in 25 hospital tours, 11 radiothons and telethons, and 25 fundraising events including golf tournaments, carnivals, family fun days and more. Not only that, but RE/MAX offices were visited by member hospitals 154 times throughout the year, and we can’t wait to see that number continue to grow.
“ My friends daughter was diagnosed with an eating disorder at 6 months of age. Layla and her parents go to BC Children's Hospital twice a month. The hospital helps so many patients like Layla and this is the reason I participate in the RE/MAX Miracle Home Program. ”
The Miracle Home Program and the relationship between RE/MAX and CMN is something enjoyed and celebrated throughout the entire year. From Month of Miracles where offices and agents participate in special days like Miracle Treat Day, to other initiatives like the Memories for Miracles Facebook Challenge that raised $7000 across Canada, it is no wonder RE/MAX agents are so happy to participate. In Canada alone, our dedicated agents whose deep commitment to community involvement has helped raise a total of nearly $60 million through various initiatives.
When the time comes to begin your search for your new home, look for the Miracle Home sign so you too can help a child in need in your community. By choosing Gary Alberts who is part of the Miracle Home Program, you’re helping to make miracles happen in the lives of children.
RE/MAX is thrilled to celebrate our 25 year partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network! Over $60 million has been donated by you and other RE/MAX affiliates, to help sick and injured children in your communities get better.
