We are Minnesota: Impact Home Team

By MNR News posted 22 days ago

Change is a concept familiar to all real estate professionals. Weathering the swells and dips of the market, adapting to shifting consumer needs, keeping up with trends—change is simply part of the job.

For the Impact Home Team of Keller Williams Classic Realty (Impact Home Team) in Blaine, change isn’t just a series of business obstacles to overcome on the way to successit’s at the core of their mission. The Impact Home Team’s work extends beyond real estate transactions into the heart of their community and even around the globe, where they’re driven to create positive changes in peoples lives. Along with the critical work of guiding Minnesotans through the process of buying and selling homes, the Impact Home Team has given to local organizations, invested in education, and volunteered locally and globally.

Among these efforts to build up their community in Anoka County, the Impact Home Team has partnered with Stepping Stone Emergency Housing—a nonprofit that provides emergency housing assistance to adults in need. Stepping Stone not only offers safe, short-term shelter to individuals in the area, but also addresses other needs to help people move toward self-reliance and long-term, stable housing.    

Beyond the Anoka County area, the Impact Home Team is doing good globally. In the spring of 2023, members of the team traveled to Guatemala to volunteer with an organization called Wakami, in collaboration with the Blaine Ham Lake Rotary Club. This trip was a deeply meaningful volunteer experience for members. Wakami partners with women from rural communities in Guatemala to empower them to create a better life for themselves and their families. To do this, Wakami enables women to create sustainably sourced handmade products—such as jewelry, bracelets, and tapestriesgenerating economic opportunities that are otherwise hard to come by. The team worked alongside Wakami with community members to weave bracelets, learn about regenerative farming, and make garden boxes—as well cleaning up and recycling trash from city streets  

The Impact Home Team’s holistic approach to business makes practicing real estate inseparable from improving lives. This dedication to go above and beyond business is what makes Realtors® such important beacons for the industry. For the Impact Home Team, service and success go hand in hand.
