Quantum Real Estate Advisors continues to partner with Habitat for Humanity to build homes on the south side of Chicago. This is the third year in a row that the firm continues to show support in the same under-privileged neighborhood by building a third home on the same street.
As the President of Quantum, I am constantly thinking about how to help support our organization and continue to grow as a team. Helping the less fortunate allows for our team to work together to strengthen our community and at the end of the day we get to see our finished product that gives us a sense of accomplishment.
The team went to the site Friday morning, June 2nd 2017. We worked through various tasks; from measuring and sawing to hammering and building. Through this physical process our team was reminded that we each play a valuable role in our organization, where each team member brings their own talents and value to the Quantum team. Employees are the assets of every organization, and success is directly proportionate to the hard work every employee puts in every day.
In the end, our day at the construction site had two outcomes. First and foremost, the tangible, we helped to build a home that will provide shelter and support to a family that deserves it. The intangible, we helped to communicate that our firm is not only active in the business world, but in the community, at large. As such, I am certain we are all better for taking a day to turn off to help make a difference.
