Coldwell Banker Bain program to benefit young musicians

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

The Cascade Youth Symphony Orchestras (CYSO), which includes young musicians from Shoreline and Lake Forest Park, has teamed up with real estate brokerage company Coldwell Banker Bain in a new initiative to help raise money for the Seattle-area non-profit organization.

Each time a CYSO member, friend or relative of a member buys or sells a home with a participating Coldwell Banker Bain agent, the company will donate an amount equal to ten percent of its commission to CYSO. 

This program was brought to us by CB Bain Broker Jim van der Voort, who works primarily in the Bothell, Mill Creek and, Woodinville areas. “There is no added cost to the home buyer or seller,” van der Voort says. 

Also participating in the program are Coldwell Banker Bain Brokers (and well-known Shoreline musician) Ken Noreen; and Patti, Bob and Nolan Greene in the Shoreline/Edmonds/Lynnwood areas.

“This is a marvelous program with terrific potential benefit to the Cascade Youth Symphony Orchestras,” says CYSO Executive Director David Endicott. “In a time of significant national economic challenge, it’s a neat way for a CYSO friend who wants to buy or sell a house or condominium to provide a financial benefit at no cost. For other buyers or sellers who would like a referral to a terrific group of real estate sales associates, we’re happy to provide that.”

Endicott says several area senior living communities have also expressed a willingness to participate in van der Voort’s program. 
“These Coldwell Banker Bain folks recognize that moving to a senior living community has many challenges and they’re fully willing and able to help. In the end, everyone benefits -- sellers, buyers and those who understand the unique value of youth music.”

Coldwell Banker Bain established its Community Partnership program as a way for the company and its agents to give back to the organizations that are committed to the welfare of our communities. Since the program was created in 1988, Coldwell Banker Bain agents have donated more than $1.36 million to over 600 non-profit organizations in the Puget Sound area.
