Company supports organizations to enhance quality of life
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 14, 2011)– Real estate is a business that thrives – or fails – on sales and profitability. But for Allen Tate Company, consistently ranked as the #1 real estate company in the Carolinas, pride lies most in giving back to benefit local communities the company serves.
The company recently raised $52,737 to benefit local United Way organizations in 15 counties in the Charlotte, Triad, Research Triangle and Upstate South Carolina regions.
“Our Realtors and employees rallied at a time when support for these critical human services agencies is so important,” said Pat Riley, president and chief operating officer, Allen Tate Company.
“From car washes and cookie sales to jeans day and clever presentations at sales meetings, our folks tapped their creativity and enthusiasm to touch the lives of the less fortunate in our local communities. I am humbled by the generosity of our team,” said Riley.
The United Way giving campaign is one of three giving initiatives Allen Tate Company embraces each year. The company believes in supporting those organizations that most enhance the quality of life of a community: United Way agencies, arts and cultural programs and public education. In 2010, Allen Tate contributed more than $126,000 to these initiatives across the Carolinas.
