KenCrest Community Champions Award

In the Fall of 2017 I was dropping something off at a friend’s house and as I was leaving I remembered that she worked for a non-profit company. Having worked in non-profits I knew they were always in search of volunteers. I had been looking for a way to give back and when she told me about her company I had to find out more. Within a week, I had a meeting set up with Barbara Ballard and Frank Guthridge of KenCrest who were kind enough to meet me for coffee at the Whole Foods in Plymouth meeting where they told me more about KenCrest and we walked away with a few ideas of how to get involved.

The Philadelphia area is a great place to live and work and I love sharing all that Philadelphia has to offer. From our unique neighborhoods and towns, great parks, amazing restaurants and nightlife, museums, and events there’s no shortage of things to do and see in, and near, Philadelphia. Since 2010, I’ve been helping people buy and sell their homes in the Philadelphia area specializing in Center City, Northwest Philadelphia, and the Montgomery County suburbs bordering the city. Outside of being a Realtor®, I’m a dad to an amazing little girl, husband to an amazing wife, and dog-dad to Frida. Together, we enjoy taking advantage of everything that Philadelphia has to offer and exploring the many parks, festivals, and events in the city. Since 2017, I’ve been supporting KenCrest through volunteer efforts including organizing cleaning and painting days at their community homes, decorating for the holidays at children’s transitional homes, and coordinating fundraising and toy drives to support their efforts.

Need to buy or sell a home in the Philadelphia area? I’ve been helping home buyers and sellers from the City to the Suburbs since 2010. Call me at 215-839-6034 and let’s talk!

MLK Day of Service | KenCrest | 2018

For the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service this year I was joined by local volunteers to do some painting at one of KenCrest’s community homes. KenCrest provides an array of services for people with mental challenges and autism. Their community homes provide housing and services for clients with these special needs. It’s great to be able to help such a great organization.

I’d like to thank my fellow volunteers who came out to help with the project. One of those volunteers, Michael Gebhardt (The German Painter), is a professional painter who’s done work for many of my clients so it was great to get to work side by side with a pro on this project. Of course, his expertise and professional equipment were extremely helpful, too.

We had a great time volunteering and we were able to get more done than we had hoped. Michael repainted a bed

room for a new resident who will be moving in soon while the rest of us repainted baseboards, heaters, and window sills throughout the first floor of the house. All in all, a great day! Thank you to KenCrest for having us and thank you to Michael, Hui Sy, and Janet for joining me for the 2018 MLK Day of Service.
