Next week, our team, Quantum Real Estate Advisors (www.qreadvisors.com) will be teaming up with Habitat for Humanity once again to build homes. Homes are the most important real estate asset, if you ask us. While we sell commercial real estate for a living, we enjoy rolling up our selves, once a year, to build homes on the south side of our beloved headquarters, Chicago.
We build homes in Chicago’s West Pullman neighborhood. Our commercial real estate firm feels passionate about creating affordable homes for families and is excited to hit the construction site for the fourth year in a row.
Quantum’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity supports a common mission to construct residences for Chicago families in need. Each year the team returns to the same street in West Pullman; painting, tiling, drilling and hammering to help transform formerly vacant lots in West Pullman into a 16-home community.
This June will mark Quantum’s fourth annual home build. When home buyer Aphriditie Miller discovered that she was the perfect fit to own a brand new, affordable home with Habitat Chicago she was ecstatic. “When I got the call that we were accepted to own a Habitat home, oh, I just screamed! I applied to find a way to better living for my family and now we would have it” Miller said. It is success stories like this that brings the Quantum team great joy and inspires us to continue this partnership year after year.
“As a business owner and manager, headquartered in Chicago, I feel our commercial real estate firm has the responsibility to give back to the city that has been so gracious to us,” said Chad Firsel, President of Quantum Real Estate Advisors. “While we all love selling real estate, each of us enjoy turning off for a day, rolling up our sleeves, and getting dirty to work together in support of a great cause.”
Quantum Real Estate is constantly striving for ways to give back. Other charities close to the firm’s heart includes colon cancer research at the University of Chicago, as well as EB research (www.ebresearch.org).
This year, in an effort to expand fundraising efforts, Quantum has launched a social media campaign to request donations for the Miller’s home. Our ever-growing national firm hopes its clients, colleagues and partners will continue to donate funds to make our efforts this year, the most successful one yet.
