Home Building Update from Giveback Homes
In October 2015 Patricia Marquis committed to helping build homes for families in need. Patricia is dedicated to giving a portion of her commissions to Giveback Homes for every sale she makes. October was a great month for Patricia, who closed on three properties; 918 S. Mill Street (represented seller & buyer) and 315 Lake Avenue (represented buyer). As a direct result Patricia has fully funded the building of three homes for three different families in Haiti, in a continued effort to restabilize the island after the 2010 earthquake. Funding a home for a family means securing a future of safety and stability.
In honor of her buyer of 918 S. Mill St., Patricia fully funded the building of a home for Justinvil and his family. Justinvil works with his sister as a food vendor at the local market in Leveque. He lives with his girlfriend Marita, his three stepsons, Lovens (12), Dalanto (5), and Kendove (4), and his daughter, Darlene (8 months). Marita and Justinvil hope to marry soon, once they have a stable home.
In honor of the seller of 918 S. Mill St., Patricia fully funded the building of a home for Rosealva and her family. Rosealva and her sister Roseni have stuck together all of their lives. After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, they lived together in a thin tarp tent provided by NGOs. Once Roseni had a son (now 4 years old), the hardworking vendors pooled their money together to rent a home near the tent slum.
In honor of her buyer of 315 Lake St., Patricia fully funded the building of a home for Dieudires and his family. Dieudires and his wife Joseline are the proud parents of 6 children, ages 5 – 19. He works hard making sandals that Joseline sells in the market. They make a priority with their meager earnings to send their children to school.
Giving back to both local and global communities is near and dear to Patricia’s heart and with the amazing organization of Giveback Homes she can directly give what means so much to all of us; a home! “We are thrilled to have Patricia Marquis of Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s Realty join Giveback Homes as a leader in social change in Aspen, CO.” -Blake Andrews, Founder Giveback Homes.
