Did you know every single year over 6-8 million dogs are abandoned in shelters, of which 3 million are euthanized?
Did you also know that every year 10,000 people buy a house or condo in Washington, DC?
Do you love dogs? Hi, I’m Hannah Clancy-Thompson with RLAH Real Estate, and I help DC residents and dogs with their housing needs. Yes, I said dogs, too…
Real estate and rescuing dogs isn’t a job to me; it’s a passion. You see, dogs bring you love and real estate brings you wealth. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
Everyone goes through tough times in life and for me, it was after my divorce. But it was also during that time that my love for real estate and rescuing dogs was born. My last job didn’t offer me enough autonomy and I decided to give real estate a try. I was intrigued by it. The ability to take a property and improve it to build long-term wealth was so attractive. Real estate enables you to become financially independent, and now I get to help others do the same thing. Coincidentally, it was around the same time my love for rescuing dogs was born. While my professional career rebounded, it was my dog who brought happiness and love back into my life.
My dog had such an impact on my life that I became a rescuer and, today, I serve as the Foster Home Coordinator and Board President of a local Doberman rescue (DAR&E). It is personally satisfying to know that I have done something to truly help another living creature. And it puts perspective on a lot of the less important things in life we let consume us.
I want to make a difference, not only in the lives of my clients, but also in our community, so here’s how it works:
Any time I help a client buy or sell a house, I will donate $500 to Doberman Assistance, Rescue, and Education from my personal compensation. The money the rescue receives is used to save homeless Dobermans, provide them with necessary medical care from vaccinations to surgery, and get them into their forever homes. To date, the rescue has saved ~2000 dogs.
Buying and selling real estate is a big financial decision, so not only will I look out for your best interests, but we’ll be doing it with love too.
So, if you are looking to buy or sell real estate and you want to do it with passion… I’m Hannah Clancy Thompson, your real estate wealth rescuer.
