“I have a passion for giving back and actively seek opportunities to make a positive impact in the lives of others, especially when it comes to children,” said realtor Denise Goertz, Attain Real Estate.

Denise donates a portion of her earnings from each home sale or purchase to Family House. Being a realtor enables Denise to positively impact her community and contribute to help families in need.

“Donating in any capacity opens my eyes beyond my own sphere, allowing me to truly appreciate all that I possess,” said Denise.

Denise shared that her greatest source of pride is being a mother and having a loving family. To those considering making a gift of time or money, she advises, “Find an organization that speaks to you. At the end of the day, it’s not the amount you donate, rather it’s the act of giving and the impact it will make on others that matters.”
