Boise Regional REALTORS® Paint Five Boise Homes

Local real estate professionals volunteered their time and resources by participating in this year’s Neighborworks® Paint the Town™, painting the homes of deserving residents who are unable to do it themselves. If you’ve ever painted a house, you know that this isn’t an easy task. Teams schedule working times with homeowners, perform hours of prep, painting and clean up. BRR teams often go above and beyond, trimming bushes and trees, and making repairs to the home prior to painting. One homeowner commented, “This is a better paint job than if we’d hired someone to do it!”

This year, BRR had five teams participate: Lysi Bishop Real Estate and Keller Williams Realty Boise painted house #1; The Independent Broker’s Council painted house #2; Coldwell Banker Tomlinson Group painted house #3; AAD Inspection and Silvercreek Realty Group painted house #4; and BRR Young Professionals Network, Silverhawk Realty, and Templeton Real Estate painted house #5.

BRR Foundation has donated nearly $100,000 as a sponsor of Paint the Town™ since the foundation’s inception in 1995. Sponsorship funds help cover the cost of paint and materials for the event. The REALTOR® Outreach Committee (ROC), the working arm of the BRR Foundation, helps recruit volunteer teams and match teams with homeowners. If you’re interested in getting involved with ROC, BRR is currently accepting applications for 2018 committees. If you’d like to volunteer for next year’s Paint the Town™, we will share details on how to sign up in early spring 2018.

Thank you to our volunteers, and to everyone who supports the BRR Foundation. Your efforts reflect the fact that REALTOR® and affiliate members are committed to giving back to our community.
