Through our Loving Room Fund, our agents have donated thousands of dollars to local nonprofits.
The Loving Room Fund
We created the Loving Room Fund so our agents can easily and effortlessly give back to their community. United in our efforts, we know we can do more to affect change and have a greater impact on the world around us. The success of our business is deeply rooted in our commitment to developing vibrant communities.
Our agents donate a percentage of every commission to one of the nonprofits we chose collectively. We’re currently partnering with Rose Haven, Oregon Wild, Urban Gleaners, and Hoffman Center of the Arts.
Rose Haven is a day shelter and community center serving women, children, and gender non-conforming folks experiencing trauma, poverty, and physical and mental health challenges. 3,383 people are served annually with 20,106 meals given, 5,105 hygiene kits distributed, and 3,473 one-on-one assistance in housing, job searches, and more.Visit Website
Urban Gleaners rescues edible surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away from grocery stores, restaurants, event sites, farms, and farmers markets. They collect roughly 50,000 pounds of food each month and deliver it free of charge to hungry children and their families through their Food to Schools program here in Portland. According to Portland Metro, Oregon now has the highest rate of childhood hunger in the nation. To meet this challenge, Urban Gleaners provides fresh, healthy food for home consumption to kids and families. With Americans throwing away 40% of their food, landfills are becoming one of the largest producers of methane gas emissions. Their mission is to reduce waste and want simultaneously.Visit Website
Oregon Wild works to protect and restore the wildlands, wildlife, and waters that make Oregon the best place on Earth to live. Since 1974, they’ve secured permanent protection for places like Mount Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, Waldo Lake, Opal Creek, and Portland's drinking water source, the Bull Run watershed. Right now, one of their main efforts is aimed at permanently protecting over 500,000 acres of wildlands in and around Oregon's only national park - Crater Lake - as Wilderness. They’ve also been a strong advocate for Oregon's native wildlife such as wolverine, salmon, sea otters, and gray wolves.

Living Room Realty is a group of professional, experienced, licensed real estate agents who specialize in representing buyers and sellers in Portland’s inner urban neighborhoods.
Living Room agents are chosen to join our community because of their own personal WHY above all other factors. On a practical level, all realtors use the same paperwork, have had the same licensing education, and have access to the same databases and information. There are few variations to the mechanics of how we do our jobs. In an industry of so few differentiations, we have found the greatest success in choosing agents who have a strong WHY and a sense of purpose that aligns with our company values.
