Big Bets For Homeless Pets

In an extended commitment to find homes for dogs in 2016, Coldwell Banker will continue its successful “Homes for Dogs Project” in collaboration with Adopt-a-Pet.com. Last year as part of the Coldwell Banker family, we set out on our mission to make a difference for the millions of adoptable pets around the country in need of a loving home.

Most recently our Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® New Braunfels Office took part in a casino night at the McKenna Center. Themed “Big Bets for Homeless Pets” tickets, food, beverages and big prizes were offered as part of an amazing casino night. With proceeds going to Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area, over 250 people came out and participated in the festivities.

We were very pleased to have sponsored this event. Thank you to Julie Gezella, her husband Ken, Kaycee Blanchard and all of the CBHarper New Braunfels Family for participating giving back to the community.

CBHarper New Braunfels Celebration

13428012_10209687823487862_1153746447909914556_nJune 2016 — Recently the Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® New Braunfels Sales Office held a Beach Party Lunch. Organized by two Sales Agents, Jenny Vonfeldt and Barbara Morgan, this party was full of fantastic fun-themed frivolity!

While the Sales Agents out of the New Braunfels office work very hard, they play hard as well. They worked together at the Texas River Fest on June 11th to spread the word of “finding home” amongst patrons eager to float the river. Despite the turn-out, they braved the Texas heat at Rockin’ R River Rides to cheer on in the name of real estate. More than just handing out free CBHarper swag – live music and cold drinks were also enjoyed. On June 14th, honoring the nearly 100 new listings the team brought into the office, they continued the week by hosting a beach theme luncheon to celebrate such a wonderful accomplishment.

New Braunfels Office Open House

Tuesday, December 8th — New Braunfel’s Herald Zeitung published a front page article featuring our Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® New Braunfels Office auctioning off doors benefiting Habitat for Humanity. The students at New Braunfels Lone Star Elementary put their imaginations to use decorating the doors to be auctioned for Comal County Habitat for Humanity Neighborhood Revitalization Program.

Beginning at 4pm, the first guests arrived to the smell of fresh made wassail. Each wall, lined with seating and auction items, was the perfect picture of merriment. Over 300 guests enjoyed good food and company, plus a special appearance from Mr. Claus himself. Children excitedly trailed Santa throughout the office to convey their Christmas wishes and have a photo taken. More than $4,500 was raised, in addition to the pending final tally of the door auction, benefiting the local Lone Star Elementary. The door voting will run through this Sunday, December 13th, and we welcome the public to stop by our New Braunfels office to cast their vote.

Over all it was such an amazing night and the reward of giving back to our community is its own reward. Thank you to all who attended and donated so many wonderful silent auction items. To view all the photos visit our company Facebook page here or here.

Opening Doors & Giving Back

IMG_3805Wednesday, December 2nd — New Braunfel’s Herald Zeitung published a front page article featuring our Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® New Braunfels Office. The students at New Braunfels Lone Star Elementary put their imaginations to use, spotlighting a cause our New Braunfels office is actively involved in – Comal County Habitat for Humanity Neighborhood Revitalization Program.

Lone Star elementary teamed up with Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® New Braunfels Office for the program – a holistic approach that expands Habitat for Humanity’s traditional partnership with new homeowners and volunteers, including neighbors for a Unknownbroader impact.

Recently Habitat worked with various community leaders to determine what part they would like to play in the project. After talking with Lone Star Elementary, the staff members decided to help by holding a themed door decorating contest at the school – “Opening Doors of Opportunity.” At least one door was decorated by every grade and will be displayed at the Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® New Braunfel’s Office located at 532 S. Seguin Avenue.

Unknown-5In the article published by the Herald Zeitung, executive director of Comal County Habitat for Humanity Nathan Weir said, “The kids had a great time and did a wonderful job of capturing the theme by incorporating many of the key Habitat concepts in their projects.” He continued by adding, “Now that the doors are complete, they will be put on display at the Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Offices from Dec. 8 through the 14th, and be a part of the yearly silent auction benefiting Comal County Habitat for Humanity.”

Weir went on to say that the entire community is invited to stop by the office on 532 S. Seguin Avenue to view and vote for their favorite door or other auction items. Anyone who stops by on Dec. 8th between 4-6 p.m. for the office’s appreciation event will be treated to special holiday beverages and food.

After all of the votes are in and counted, the D’Ann Harper office will present the winning classrooms that decorated with a prize. “Our hope was to get that word out about our program, and also show off the kids’ skills,” Weir said. “We just did this project with one school this year, but we love to open this up to many schools and make it bigger. Our whole intent though was to make the Neighborhood Revitalization Program known, and get the kids and parents to ask questions.”

Unknown-2Madeline Hezel, a fifth grader at Lone Star Elementary, said her favorite part of the project was working on the door together as a class. “The theme of our door was to not lose hope, ” Hezel said. “I liked the way everyone showed their creativity, and made each of their doors special. Every door holds a different destiny.”

This award is in memory of Steve Brown’s wife, Susan. Steve is a member of the Board of Directors.

Nathan Weir, Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity presented Julie the award for her work on raising funds thru their Stud Run 5k, Mudd Volleyball and various silent auctions during their office events.   Nathan mentioned that this award is always given internally.  To have an outside corporate company raise the funds that Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® has, hasn’t happened, until now!

Julie told the audience that “without the help of her amazing office and amazing Broker, D’Ann Harper, no way could those funds have been raised.  For our third year, we continue to increase the amount of money we raise.  Our Community Appreciation New Braunfels event on December 8th at our office will be another silent auction. In addition to lots of items to bid on, this year Nathan has arranged to have Lone Star Elementary School decorate doors donated by Habitat for the auction as well.  The kids will be told to create the theme “Opening Doors for Opportunity”, a revitalization project for the community of which Lone Star School is located in.  The awareness for the kids to know how important homeownership can be for deserving hand selected families is amazing! “

From all of us here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® – thank you for all you do and congratulations!
