Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties Inspired to Give Back Year-Round to Help Others

— Michele Watson

The team from Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties has participated in the annual DragonBoat race the past two years to help raise thousands of dollars for local cancer patients and survivors.

BEAUFORT, S.C. / Dec. 20, 2017 – The folks at Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties in Beaufort certainly have been busy this year – and not just with the buying and selling of homes for their clients.
The real estate company has been involved with numerous community events in the Beaufort area throughout the year, many of which benefitted local charities.
They started in April at the Blue Angels Air Show in Beaufort distributing goodie bags to the thousands of military and civilian attendees. Next came the big splash they made at the June DragonBoat race, where the office has raised close to $13,000 over the last two years to help cancer patients and survivors in Beaufort County.
Agents and staff at Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties enjoyed dressing up as pirates, rock stars and horror movie characters and handing out candy at this year’s Trick or Treat in Downtown Beaufort event.

The Weichert® affiliate was back at again a few months later handing out 3,000 bags of candy to costumed children and their parents at the Oct. 26 Trick or Treat in Downtown Beaufort event. They also hosted a Dec. 9 Toys for Tots collection event to help families and children in need locally this holiday season.
“We’re honored to have been asked to be a part of so many incredible community events this year,” said Karen Ryan, the co-owner/broker of Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties. “Doing all of this gives us an opportunity to give back to a community that has supported us throughout the years while helping those in need. And we’re not done yet.”
The company is also collecting non-perishable food items until Jan. 31, 2018 at its Beaufort, Bluffton, Hilton Head and Okatie offices to help Second Helpings, a non-profit food rescue and distribution network that works to eliminate hunger in the Lowcountry.
Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties is an independently owned and operated Weichert affiliate. The company serves residential and commercial clients in Hilton Head Island, Beaufort, Bluffton and Okatie.
