Windermere Real Estate / Puyallup, Inc.

Community Service Day

Every year Windermere closes its offices for one day to help make a positive difference in our local communities. It all started in 1984 when a handful of Windermere owners and agents came together to make repairs at a local elementary school. Nearly three decades and more than 800,000 hours of community service later, we’ve continued this tradition through neighborhood-enhancing projects in the areas where our Windermere teams live, work, and play.  Follow our projects on our Facebook Page and see our 2014 Community Service Day video on YouTube here.

Community Commitment

Supporting the communities Windermere serves has been a core element of the company’s formation and growth. As a company born and raised in the Puget Sound region of Washington state, Windermere sponsors the annual Windermere Cup Regatta, which is a premier rowing regatta featuring teams from around the globe. Windermere also sponsors similar community events in other regions, including the Windermere Collegiate Crew Classic in partnership with Stanford University.

Windermere Foundation

Since finding homes for people is Windermere’s business, fighting homelessness is a natural fit for the Windermere Foundation. Through the creation of the Windermere Foundation in 1989, Windermere provides housing and services for homeless and low-income families throughout the West by funding nonprofit organizations dedicated to the same cause. Every time an agent completes a transaction, a donation is made to the Foundation, and Windermere agents and employees also contribute to the fund individually.

Community Service Day

Windermere’s 8,000 agents in its offices around the West spend one day each year away from the office to participate in the annual Windermere Community Service Day. The agents decide on a community-based project, and provide hands-on assistance for the day.
