Story House Real Estate is proud to support a local charity with every closing. Beginning in 2015, we decided to make a donation on behalf of each closed client to a charity of their choice. Our giving goal for each calendar year is to exceed $20,000 given back to our local community, and we are so thankful for our amazing clients and the incredible opportunity to make Charlottesville a better place to live, work, and play.

Every quarter our team takes a day to give back to our community through charities that are close to our hearts. We partner with our trusted service providers, our friends and family, and our clients to leave a life-changing impact on the community we call home.
