Giving Back To Our Community

It is of paramount importance that I recognize the community what has been so good to me over the years.  RE/MAX recommends that it's agents participate in ongoing giving programs that benefit local and national charities.  RE/MAX recognizes the Children's Miracle Network to support our  local affiliate, the Dell Children's Hospital and, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Network.

Locally, our RE/MAX Capital City offices have elected to support Home Alliance.  Below, please enjoy this article about our active participation with this vital organization who helps those victims of domestic violence in Williamson County, many of those have no other place to turn to for assistance.



Hope Alliance
RE/MAX Capital City Among Top Charity Realtor Contributors

Austin, Texas-December 20, 2016 – ‘Tis the season for giving, and nowhere is that culture embraced & embodied more than at RE/MAX Capital City, the award-winning Brokerage since 1994 with offices in Austin, Cedar Park and Round Rock.

The tone of philanthropy is conducted by longtime top producing Realtors under the leadership of Broker/Owner Jeff Osborne, a fixture on the Austin real estate scene since 1987, and a noted industry educator.

 “We’re 80% of the way towards our five-year, $125,000 commitment to Hope Alliance, the only domestic violence shelter in Williamson County,” Osborne recently confirmed.  “This year’s $25K contribution brings us to over $100,000 so far, and we’re on track with our other pledges as well. Our agents continue to amaze me with their commitment.”

Capital City was the #1 RE/MAX CMN contributor many years having supported our Dell Children’s Hospital with over $100,000 in closing contributions from all our agents.

In 2013 Osborne charged his staff with finding a need at the local level where the company could make a significant impact.  When they discovered Hope Alliance, the organization was coping with a multitude of funding and facilities problems and was forced to turn away over 40% of those who came seeking refuge.  The agents of Capital City and lending partner, Supreme Lending, accepted the challenge to make a big commitment that would give Hope Alliance enough stability to start moving toward being able to meet the needs of everyone seeking shelter from domestic violence across Williamson County.

In addition to financial support, the agents have donated thousands of dollars in goods and services to help improve the daily lives of Hope Alliance’s clients. Most of the women and children arriving at the shelter doors have nothing more than the clothes on their backs.

The company has continued support for Children’s Miracle Network and Susan G. Komen as well. This year, over $3,400 has been donated to Children’s Miracle Network to support local affiliate Dell Children’s Hospital and over $1,000 has been donated to Susan G. Komen.

“Community involvement goes hand-in-hand with the service we provide every day to our neighbors who live and work in the same place we all do,” Osborne adds. “We’re all looking to provide the same comforts and security and safety for our loved ones, and enjoy the best opportunities our life provides.    It’s an honor to be surrounded with people who share the values of compassion, as well as those of professional success.”
