Canberra’s Only Social Impact Model In Real Estate – funding homelessness initiatives with Hands Across Canberra

My unique social impact model in real estate is now part of Blackshaw Manuka. My government background in social policy in overseas aid and refugee/humanitarian programs solidified my core way of life. Within my first 18 months as an agent, I established my Investors Can Help Project with the Migrant and Refugee Settlement Services, to help the region’s newest community members find housing. I believe those fortunate to be in the “haves” should give back. I’m proud to be the first agent in our region to have a Named Fund with Hands Across Canberra, and I’m passionate about raising funds for homelessness initiatives. The United Nations has decreed that having a roof over your head is a basic human right. Selling your home or investment property is an important journey, and owners now have an opportunity for this to have a positive social impact on the broader community.
