Pay-It-Forward By Accommodating Two Families

By
Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803
This week's Pay-It-Forward by Larry & Sheila
 
We recently sold a house that a family really needed to sell who are on their way to a new life out of state. They are moving in with family and have furniture that will not be making the move with them.
 
They didn't want to throw it out, and didn't want to go through the hassle of trying to sell any of it.
 
This is where our pay it forward worked.
 
We knew exactly where it could go and who would appreciate this kind gesture.  
 
A divorcee who is now struggling had mentioned to us that she didn't know how she was going to afford to buy beds for her kids.
 
Bingo...we introduced these two families, and in turn helped them both.
 
This was a great solution and we're happy that we were able to get these two families together!
