Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, Inc. Announces Top Brokers
Top producers account for 37 percent of contributions to the Windermere Foundation
PORTLAND, Ore. — February 15, 2013 — Forty-three brokers representing Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, Inc.’s (CCRGI) top ten percent of production in 2012 were honored last week for their hard work, professional achievements and charitable generosity during another challenging year in the real estate market.
These brokers consistently play a large role in Windermere CCRGI’s unique culture of charitable giving. Last year, the company’s eleven offices combined to donate a total of $103,427 to local charities supporting homeless and low-income families through the Windermere Foundation — with the top brokers accounting for 37 percent of that giving. Dispersed among twenty-eight charities, the beneficiaries spread throughout the communities served by the offices in the Portland metro-area, Vancouver, Wash. and the northern Ore. coast.
“While the real estate market has started to gain momentum, careers in this industry — especially in an economy that is less than ideal — will always be challenging,” said Joan Allen, Co-Owner of Windermere CCRGI. “The brokers that have continued to persevere through the tough times provide inspiration to us all. We commend these professionals for their commitment to their clients and the communities in which they live and work.”

About the Windermere Foundation
For every home that is bought or sold through Windermere, the Windermere Foundation donates a portion of the proceeds toward supporting low-income and homeless families in our communities. What started in 1989 as a grassroots foundation has grown to encompass ten states and has raised $25 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance, and other services to those who need our help most.
In Oregon, Windermere CCRGI has raised more than $1,000,000 for the Windermere Foundation in support of local organizations offering housing and services to homeless and low-income families. Organizations such as Portland Providence Medical Foundation, New Avenues for Youth, and Bridge Meadows were included in the 2012 giving.
