We strive to ensure that every building is improved beyond our clients’ expectation. We make certain that tenants are happy, and that nothing falls between the cracks with compliance.
Every one of our staff emmbers is committed, works longhard hours, collaborates as a team, and ensure that our results are unsurpassed. We are deeply moved and honored with receiving this award, knowing that our commitment to service has been recognized.
At R.EM. Residential we believe our success can have a positive impact on a lot more than just helping investors and landlords. We are very much involved in helping Real estate organizations such as RSA and CHIP, who in turn help fight for the landlords. As we grow, we like to help our communities grow and benefit. For example, each year we attend and donate to JCCA, a very noble cause to help urban children get schooled. We have been active in donating to and attending Happy Faces events, which help children who are terminally ill.
Our holiday parties and real estate networking events are a great way to bring Real estate professionals together and network. We believe our continued success should be shared with those around us.
Some Of The Things That Set R.E.M. Apart Are:
Our offices went a week without power, but as soon as power came back on November 3rd, our employees got together and began reaching out to our large network of contractors, vendors and friends in the industry. We were able to raise over $10,000 in monetary donations, as well as multiple donations of various good and supplies. The monetary contributions were used to purchase a tremendous amount of goods and supplies.
About 25 of the superintendents, workers, industry friends and family went along to Staten Island on November 16 to help with the distribution of supplies to the devastated communities. As we approached the affected area, we felt the devastation, but it was followed quickly by a proud feeling of being part of this state and this country as the picture of Ariana’s Grand surrounded by FEMA workers, volunteers and tents full of donations came into focus. Our R.E.M. team was warmly received by all.
As we went from location to location we unpacked the massive moving truck donated by the Padded Wagon (a hot pink breast cancer awareness truck) in the final location. About 25 people greeted us to unload. It was truly a team effort and very rewarding. Emotions were running high and we knew we were doing something very noble.
On our way home, the activities of the day began sinking in. We realized that as a group of people as diverse as our country and our state, with nationalities including Albanians, Croatians, Colombians, Dominicans, Italians, Turkish and Americans, had all come together as one in an effort to unite, help and give.
In time, they had the privilege of meeting Don Fatmir Koliqi from Kosova and with his help, made arrangements with Caritas Kosova to ship and distribute the toys. In an auspicious twist of fate, the donations were shipped to a refugee camp in Ferizaj, the very city where Rick Elezi was born 50 years prior.
REM collected 17 large boxes of toys in total and Caritas was kind enough to send us picture of the happy children. A very rewarding effort for sure.
