Brokerage Partners with Giveback Homes to Launch AKG | Christie's Selling for Good

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Creating a path towards community transformation, Christie's International Real Estate | AKG and Giveback Homes today announces AKG | Christie's Selling for Good, a partnership focused on helping low-income families become first-time homeowners.

The first two initiatives will take place in Los Angeles and El Salvador and will be funded by Aaron Kirman and Cindy Ambuehl of Christie's International Real Estate | AKG. Build Day for the Los Angeles property will take place on October 26th, when Aaron, Cindy, and other agents and staff, will be among the first to volunteer on the site, working with Habitat for Humanity, to help build eight two-story townhomes. The El Salvador project will result in a complete home for a family of six in El Salvador, who are currently living in unsafe and overcrowding conditions. The home is scheduled to be completed by September 20th, 2023.

"I am truly delighted to embark on this remarkable journey through our new partnership with Giveback Homes," said Aaron Kirman, CEO and Founder at AKG | Christie's International Real Estate." This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to help the community, and I'm thrilled to be part of this transformative effort."

Cindy Ambuehl, Executive Director of Luxury Estates, AKG | Christie's International Real Estate, said "I am thrilled to collaborate with Giveback Homes and wholeheartedly support their mission to provide homes for those in need. This initiative has been a personal passion of mine ever since I first joined forces with GBH eight years ago. This partnership perfectly aligns with our core values, reflecting our commitment to giving back."

In addition to personally funding these builds, Kirman and Ambuehl have created a donation system that will allow agents and non-agents alike to donate additional funds to Giveback Homes. Agents will also have the option to donate a percentage of their commission at the close of transactions.

"We created Giveback Homes to help families in need and to provide real estate leaders with unique opportunities to give back. Aaron and Cindy are an excellent example of going all in with the goal of making the biggest impact," said Giveback Homes Founder, Blake Andrews
