Cedar Properties, while a professional management company that strives for high returns for its’ clients and high service for its’ residents, is also a company that really likes real estate in all of its forms. From superlative public space like city and regional parks to well-designed civic and religious buildings. We are also big fans of quality affordable housing as we see first hand, every day the challenges people face with respect to housing in the East Bay.
Thinking about this led us to our choice of gifts for our clients at the end of the year.
One of our favorite housing organizations of all time is Habitat for Humanity, the great organization founded by former President Jimmy Carter. If you don’t know Habitat for Humanity, we recommend that you learn about it. They solicit donations of labor and money to build homes but they also insist that the family who will ultimately move into the property provide a substantial amount of the labor needed for the home to get built.
You can visit them here: http://www.habitat.org/
Cedar Properties is donating $100 per client (owner) for our entire portfolio. With 30 clients, we will be donating $3,000. As Cedar Properties does most of its business in the cities of Oakland and Berkeley, we will designate the funds to assist in our own community. We are also hopeful that our donation will be doubled by the Nissan Corporation as they are doubling every donation made through the end of the calendar year with their “Nissan Challenge.” If you are reading this, perhaps now would be a very good time to donate yourself? We encourage you to do so.
