BRIMMING with Team SPIRIT

Each month I have the pleasure of highlighting people or businesses that are filled with community spirit and generously share that with others. I found myself rather giddy preparing for this month’s article because of the amazing energy and hearts of my subjects – Team Manzon. Team Manzon consists of Regina and Anthony Manzon, a young couple who are realtor rock stars while simultaneously filling the role of community heroes.
Visit their website at spreadlovehomes.com and you will find their company’s mission is to Spread Love, One Home at a Time. Team Manzon beautifully marries their profession and philanthropy by donating 10% of their commission to nonprofits helping homeless individuals and animals find homes.
“It is so important as a business and even as an individual to be involved in the community and give back to support local needs. People think they can’t make a significant change in their community and yet here with Team Manzon we believe uplifting others will ultimately uplift the community and in turn it will uplift our business and ourselves. It’s the golden rule in full effect.”
Mi Escuelita, a local therapeutic preschool for children who have been exposed to family violence, is one recipient of Team Manzon’s generosity. The Manzons brought the school and staff on a field trip to the Living Coast Discovery Center for a day of learning and fun. And the fun didn’t stop there — Anthony Manzon spent another morning with the students providing a break dance demonstration with a dance crew from his pre-realty life.
This year Regina Manzon chaired the Culture Committee for Keller Williams Chula Vista. The committee organizes the annual KW Red Day – a day of service. Manzon and the KW team held a toiletry drive for Trolley Trestle, a local transitional housing program for youth who have aged out of the foster care system. The team organized storage units and built new shelving for all the items they were able to collect.
Team Manzon has won industry awards and recognition for their top notch realty work. But to those who have benefited from their generosity, passion and fun, Team Manzon gets the award for community spirit!
