We’re a purpose-driven small business with a passion for being inclusive and supporting communities that need it most. There are several causes we care a lot about. Check out what we’ve been up to:
No need to make this complicated.
LGBTQ rights are Human rights…Period.
LGBTQ issues are Human issues…Period.
Justice and equality for the LGBTQ community is justice and equality for all of humanity… Period.
You don’t have to be a member of the LGBTQ community to be affected by these issues. You don’t have to have a friend or co-worker or neighbor or classmate or even realize you know ANYONE in the LGBTQ community to be affected by these issues.
You just have to care about the quality of our democracy and the richness of our community.
That’s why we’re proud to be loud about being Open to All!
Now, you probably already know that for every loan closed with one of our Home Loan Guides, we happily donate $250 to the local, non-profit of our customer’s choice!
If you don’t already have a recipient in mind, Holly would like to encourage you to consider supporting GLSEN Phoenix and the amazing work they’re doing for all our kids!
Well of course we love dogs, and despite our better judgment, we love cats. And we’re downright excited to have chickens.
Our lives are richer, our homes are happier,
and our days hold more laughter because of the love of our animals.
We’ve seen true appreciation and admiration we could not have earned in the eyes of our shelter rescue pups.
We’ve known the satisfaction of finally being cool enough for our adopted kitty to fall asleep (purring even) on our lap.
But that’s not why we’re so passionate about animal welfare issues here in Arizona.
We’re passionate about using our voice for the voiceless and in living in a community where even the least among us are not forgotten.
The myriad flavors of local businesses, clubs, charities, and groups doing their thing THEIR way is precisely what makes our community stand out from so wonderful to live in and so popular to visit. By supporting those local, flavorful businesses instead of national, vanilla chains, we ensure that our sparkle of uniqueness is preserved!
Local ownership helps ensure that important business decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions. It also contributes to an increased level of civic engagement both at the ballot box and in the streets!
Compared to national and international businesses, locally owned shops recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into our local economy, enriching the whole community. A rising tide lifts all boats AND makes sure the pond doesn’t run dry!
When the people behind the business where you’re buying local products and services are you friends and neighbors, you’ll enjoy a much richer experience with better customer service and products.
After all, in a local shop the owner is often directly connected to every employee leading to a real personal approach that ensures problems are taken seriously and environments are friendly!
We love local community, and we love to keep our money flowing through it. Just another reason we’re thrilled to donate $250 to the local, non-profit of our client’s choice with each loan we close!
Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers-which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution. Even better, the reduction in our carbon footprint that comes from sourcing as much of our produce and durable goods from local vendors as possible is remarkable!
