When Ron Pruiksma, decided to sponsor a competition for his agents, he never expected it would afford the opportunity to shed a little light on a local non-profit organization. Coming up on their one-year anniversary in the real estate marketplace, Ron and his partner Amy Werner were discussing the number of leads they had, and how they should go about converting them to sales. Then, someone proposed the idea of a friendly competition. Since the agency is home to four male realtors and four female realtors, a fun, “battle of the sexes” contest was formulated.
A one-thousand-dollar cash prize was on the line for the winners to spend as they wished, and that meant, “Game On!” After 4 weeks’ worth of competitive grit, the ladies took the prize. A spa day, Broadway show, or evening on the town with a limo were some of the suggestions offered by Pruiksma. “Our agents work extremely hard on behalf of our clients, and I wanted to show my appreciation to them for all of they do on behalf of the company,” stated Ron. “However, in the spirit of Mission’s philanthropic outreach, the agents came up with an alternate plan.” Amy added, “Our group realized that we could use this opportunity to serve a larger purpose by taking the award and paying it forward. Inspired by the culture of our company, we unanimously decided to support Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center, an organization which helps women, men, and teens facing unplanned pregnancies.”
Executive Director Debbie Provencher explains, “Lighthouse is so grateful for this generous gift from the women of Mission Realty. As mothers themselves, they appreciate what it takes to care for a newborn, as well as the challenges to overcome if a parent is alone or under-resourced. I was so inspired to learn that these moms used their prize money, not to pamper themselves, but to meet the specific needs of our Lighthouse moms – practical items like a toddler car seat and a snowsuit to keep their children safe and warm! Their kind gesture truly demonstrated the spirit of Christmas and their company’s commitment to the community. The services Lighthouse offers are available free of charge because of generous individuals like these women and businesses like Mission Realty.” “The concept of giving back goes along with all of our beliefs,” stated Kate Fair, Mission Realty agent. “It is a pleasure to work alongside these women with the common intentions of helping our community and changing the course of peoples’ lives for the better.” Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center has locations in Paterson, Wayne, and Hackensack.

We took some "tricky" weather and turned it into a "treat" for kids at Paterson's Oasis. Mission Realty had it all planned...a Halloween event for kids in Wyckoff complete with lots of healthy, allergy-free snacks. However, the day's weather had other ideas, and the event was canceled due to a Nor'easter's downpour. Kris Pepper, of Finish-Line Marketing, (pictured) made some quick calls and was able to get the snacks into the hands of kids at an food allergy support group at RWJBarnabas Hospital in Livingston, as well as Paterson's Oasis, a Haven for Women and Children. Our Mission is to let no snack ever go to waste!
We are so grateful for Ron Pruiksma and our friends at Mission Realty for graciously filling 9 Boxes of Love for our Thanksgiving Food Drive! It is so amazing to see all that God is doing in our community through this powerful outreach!
