Does Your Real Estate Agent Give Back To The Minnesota Community?

Minnesota Real Estate Agents Give To Charity

Socially Conscious Real Estate

Buying a house or selling a house with the right Minnesota real estate agent can mean more than purchasing your dream house. It can also support Special Olympics, provide a scholarship to a graduating high school student, feed hungry children, help operate shelters for the homeless, and provide disaster relief and humanitarian aid.


Transition Realty, our real estate agency based in Farmington, Minnesota, regularly gives a portion of our proceeds from our real estate services to charitable organizations. It’s how each real estate agent works to give back to the community and it’s a good way for us to attract homebuyers and home sellers who share the same values.

We all have the ability to shape our world and the way we engage in it. I believe it’s our responsibility to support our community and help it thrive. Transition Realty provides support to organizations and causes that strengthen our neighborhoods, the land, and the local economy to help build a better Minnesota.

There are hundreds of great organizations working to improve the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. This is just a small list of some of the charitable giving that our real estate agency has engaged in to improve our community.

Special Olympics of Minnesota

Special Olympics Minnesota brings people with and without intellectual disabilities together for competition, leadership and other inclusive activities. The real estate team at Transition Realty has plunged into the cold waters of Crystal Lake each year.  These charitable funds go towards programming and events for more than 8,200 athletes statewide.

College Scholarships

Transition Realty is investing in our youth by providing college scholarships to select graduating high school seniors.  Students at Lakeville and Farmington high schools are awarded funds to pursue a 2 or 4-year degree at an accredited institution.

The Salvation Army Northern Division

The Salvation Army Northern Division has been serving people in need in Minnesota for more than 125 years. With each real estate agent donating time during the holidays, Transition Realty supports the Salvation Army to provide basic needs assistance, housing, youth services, and disaster relief.

Farmington Athletics and Events

As part of our most recent Customer Appreciation Event we were able to raise $2,000 for Farmington area athletics and activities. These funds supported Farmington Youth Hockey Association, Farmington High School Dance Team, and Farmington Girls Fast Pitch Softball.

Feed My Starving Children

Feed My Starving Children provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. Our Minnesota real estate agents, along with their families have hand-packed thousands of meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. These nutritious meals packed at Feed My Starving Children’s Eagan Minnesota location are distributed to hungry children around the world.

Our purpose is to make an impact and support our community. We accomplish this through the vehicle of real estate. We are proud of what our real estate team and their families are doing in the community.
