Charity

In The Community

At Shusterman Team, RE/MAX we strongly believe in being productive, contributing members of the communities we live and work in. Our agents are community leaders, donating both their time and money to countless charities and causes. Below are just some of the ways we’re making a difference in your community—because the difference we make in our communities benefits us all.


The Miracle Home Program

For some, making it out the door on time is nothing short of a miracle. For others, miracles are life-changing events that alter your life the moment they happen. At Shusterman Team, our agents make miracles happen every time, through the sale of every home.

When you spot our iconic red, white, and blue sign standing proudly on the front lawn of a home that is for sale, you may also notice a special addition that advertises it as a Miracle Home. Sure, small miracles happen at home every day, but what makes this home so special? That sign rider that stands tall under every Shusterman Team’s FOR SALE sign lets you know that these RE/MAX agents are not just any agents, they are a Miracle Agents who generously donates a portion of the sale of each home to the Children’s Miracle Network member hospital in your community.

RE/MAX is proud to celebrate our 25 year partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network! In Canada alone, our dedicated agents, whose deep commitment to community involvement, have helped raise a total of more than $60 million through various initiatives. Now that is something to celebrate!

Each day, more than 4,900 children receive care at a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital, and RE/MAX Agents have been raising valuable funds since 1992.

When the time comes to begin your search for your new home, look for the Miracle Home sign so you too can help a child in need in your community. By choosing Shusterman Team who is part of the Miracle Home Program, you’re helping to make miracles happen in the lives of children.

RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon

All brands are represented by something. Whether it is a swoosh that symbolizes one of the biggest brands in the world, a set of golden arches that represent a company that can test even the strongest of will powers, or a balloon that represents one of the biggest names in real estate, icons are arguably one of the most important parts of any brand.

At RE/MAX, the balloon represents so much more than just the company. The balloon represents the hard work and dedication put forth by each and every RE/MAX agent, allowing them to soar high above the crowd. It represents that they will go above and beyond to help you find your dream home, and shows that when you want to work with the best, you know who to turn to. The RE/MAX brand is not only a leader in the real estate industry, but is widely known as having the most productive agents in the world.

The RE/MAX Balloon is one of the most widely recognized symbols in North America and was first seen by spectators of the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival in 1978. In North America, there are approximately 100 RE/MAX Balloons engaged in promotional programs, with millions of people witnessing this strong corporate symbol each year as it flies high above them in the sky. The RE/MAX Balloon represents an excellent opportunity to create awareness and promote goodwill in the community and takes thousands of people on flights each year.

As such a strong symbol, we love to see our happy homeowners enjoying the RE/MAX balloon as it flies above them.
