Nominate Your Arlington Charity

It’s one thing to sell a home in town, it’s another to commit to the people and community of the town you work and live in.

Not only is Steve McKenna & The Home Advantage Team the #1 REALTOR® and #1 real estate team in Arlington – we pay prefer to it forward, and pay it back.

At the beginning of 2015 Steve committed to ‘move forward by giving back’ by donating $10,000 to four Arlington charities over the course of the year. To date we have contributed $2,500 each to Arlington Fuel AssistanceThe Children’s Room and Arlington Eats.

In case you missed it, check out the article, Get $2,500 for your favorite nonprofit thanks to an Arlington Realtor, in the Arlington Advocate last week.

We have one more donation to make and we’re looking to YOU to tell us which charity should receive the final $2,500 of the year.
