In March of 2019, Dana Whittaker, Office Manager for Pacific Sotheby’s Realty’s Carlsbad and San Elijo offices challenged her agents, many of whom already donate a percentage of their commissions to the Pacific Sotheby’s International Agents of Change program on a regular basis, to get creative and “Go Big” by hosting events, fundraising activities – including a “Battle Axe” competition – to raise money to completely fund the building of a new home for a family in Tijuana.
Always up for the challenge to support a good cause, the team raised enough funds in just over one month to fund the project. On April 15th, a group of Agents of Change Realtors from the Carlsbad & San Elijo Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty offices headed to Tijuana, Mexico to build the home that would transform the lives of the Ramos Esparza family.

ABOUT AGENTS OF CHANGE | In March of 2017, Pacific Sotheby’s Realty created the Agents of Change program in partnership with World Housing. Since then Pacific Sotheby’s Realty, their agents, affiliates, family, and friends have continued to transform the lives of families living in absolute poverty through the gift of safe and secure housing. To date, Pacific Sotheby’s Realty has raised $275,000 and officially funded homes for 44 families! Thanks to the success of the Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s Agents of Change initiative, World Housing has launched the program globally to all 950 offices in the Sotheby’s International Realty network.
