In the News: Advocates for Social Good
CEO and Broker Owner of ALANTE Real Estate honored for her commitment to safe housing for all
Manhattan Beach, C.A., April 24, 2018 — The housing crisis is a growing issue, not just for the United States but for the world. Giveback Homes, real estate’s social good movement, today names Susana Murphy, CEO and Broker Owner of ALANTE Real Estate in Plymouth, Massachusetts as a 2018 Advocate for Social Good. This distinction is given to prominent individuals within the real estate community who have demonstrated their commitment to giving back and pursuing the goal of safe and secure housing for all, and are eager to do more.
“We started Giveback Homes because we saw the opportunity to bring a focus on social good to real estate,” said Blake Andrews, founder of Giveback Homes. “Through the years, we’ve found a tribe of real estate professionals who are going above and beyond in their communities and the world and the Giveback Homes Advocate program will aim to mobilize them even more. They will also help shape the future of Giveback Homes.”
The Advocate program is a select group of Giveback Homes members who each had to apply by describing what the future of Giveback Homes looked like to them. Some of their answers included, educational seminars about home ownership, meeting with Congress, referral programs, and partnering with more non-profits. The Advocates are dedicated to amplifying Giveback Homes initiatives, promoting new membership opportunities, and leading initiatives in their community. The Advocates will meet once a quarter to strategize on social good projects and mobilize other industry professionals through their engagement.
Susana Murphy began her career in real estate in 2005 after owning marketing and recruiting firms. Susana founded her firm, ALANTE Real Estate, with one goal in mind: to better serve her clients using the latest technology, but without forgetting that “old-fashioned” values like professionalism and morals still matter to people, a lot. Susanna has been a long-time Giveback Homes member and donates to Giveback Homes with each transaction. “I envision Giveback Homes providing affordable housing, clean water, and other resources associated with home ownership and a healthy lifestyle for all,” added Susana. “I’m happy to be given the opportunity to do more.”
"Susana and the team at ALANTE Real Estate have contributed to many projects throughout the years and have volunteered time and energy to physically help build a home,” said Caroline Pinal, co-founder of Giveback Homes. "We are so excited to name Susana as one of our Advocates.”
Giveback Homes mobilizes the real estate industry to provide safe homes and clean water to families in need. Giveback Homes has provided safe and secure homes for over 200 families in Nicaragua, 50 affordable housing projects in the U.S., and water filters to give over 5,000 people access to clean drinking water. The company has mobilized funds for times of crisis in the wake of hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters. Through volunteer experiences, fundraising events, and impact reporting, Giveback Homes empowers the real estate community to take an active role in making the world a better place.
