The brokers at Urban Real Estate have proudly been involved in giving back to the community and to the housing industry since its inception more than twelve years ago. It is a value that is shared by the brokers, as well as the partners, who hold near and dear the goal to give back where they live, work, and play.
The back to school season was no different as the team at Urban partnered with no-kill, all-breed dog rescue, One Tail at a Time, to help dogs find temporary and permanent homes. An event held at Urban’s 400 E. Randolph turned a real estate brokerage into a neighborhood hot spot for a doggie meet and greet for friends old and new. “Our goal isn’t to just make a difference for a dog who could use a great foster or permanent home,” says Michael Emery, senior partner, “It is also to bring people and dog lovers together to make our community even stronger with new friends and residents, alike.”
Urban Real Estate has continued to seek new ways to strengthen its bond with the community. Long-time advocates on the local, state, and national housing scene, Urban brokers have fought for property owner rights for years, and dedicated thousands of hours on issues of affordable housing, property taxes, and public safety.
In addition, Urban continues to remain friends of organizations such as the Union Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago, supporting the sustainability and growth of programs for young children and teens in neighborhoods developing better citizens and stronger students.
“We follow our heartstrings where we can, and encourage our brokers to make a difference wherever that may take them,” says Emery. “We will continue to try new things and engage our New Eastside neighbors in every way we can because every voice and hand counts in making our community better.”
