Guest Blog Post feature is a new idea we are trying to give all of our members an opportunity to share an article on theBrokerList blog. Since our project is open to the public via online search, writing a blog article about an area of expertise is a great way to brand you and your firm. Thanks to Michael Pink for providing this post.

Associated Publications Inc. (API) made a difference with its real estate transaction – generating nearly $4,800 in funding for Pets Are Worth Saving Chicago (PAWS Chicago). When the time came to negotiate its lease, the company made a socially responsible choice by working with IIC and theBrokerList Member Michael Pink of MAP Real Estate Inc. A committed Member of IIC, Michael pledged 15% of his commission, rather than the minimum 10%, to PAWS.
Michael Pink was just pleased to make his client happy. “It’s a wonderful thing to be able to get business by empowering my clients to support causes they’re passionate about,” says Pink. “IIC is the tool that makes it possible.” And Krueger-Spurlock’s passion for PAWS is evident. “If any company is considering a charity that offers a grass-roots, forward-thinking approach to saving the lives of homeless pets,” she says, “PAWS Chicago is for you!”
