Goodness in Skydiving and Real Estate
Century 21 real estate agents have recently been on adventures to expand their personal courage and promote local charities. It is partially personal mission and partially component of the Century 21 mission of “Smarter, Bolder, Faster.” Recently, the Arroyo Grande Relay For Life, a chapter of the American Cancer Society has been the benefactor.
Anne McCracken, veteran Century 21 Hometown real estate agent is also a cancer survivor. She and fellow Century 21 agent Crystal Cowart are co-chairs for Relay for Life. Over the past few weeks, they have been jumping out of planes to raise money for cancer research. Other Century 21 Hometown agents joining the effort include Nancy Tucker, David Hubbel, Michelle Adney, and Hubbel team assistant, Andrianna Burbank.
“It was bucket list stuff because I lived through cancer” says McCracken. “As a survivor, I personally understand that the support for the American Cancer Society in fighting such a terrible disease is the greatest gift that I can give back to humanity.”
Anne has sold real estate for 8 years. Before that she was the Manager of Silverado Tours for 14 years. McCracken was also employed with the Lucia Mar school district for 11 years. Real Estate became a natural evolution in McCraken’s career. “My mom was an agent so I grew up as the child of a REALTOR.” Her brother is also a real estate broker and REALTOR. “I love the people I work with and have purchased and sold many homes for myself,” says McCraken.
For McCraken, Century 21 Hometown Realty has the size, training, support, and collaborative environment that allows her to specialize in residential real estate. McCraken is an agent on the Hubbel Team with 3 other agents. The Hubbel team is ranked #8 team in the Nation for Century 21.
To raise money for Relay for life, McCraken and others flew out of Oceano Airport and parachuted into a landing area at sea venture beach. The flight took them up to 10,000 feet and had everyone the opportunity to take in the majestic view. The skydiving company managing the event was Skydive Pismo Beach.
Each Century 21 agent did a Tandem dive with a certified instructor. Skydive Pismo beach has master instructors on staff with more than 2500 jumps. Giving that kind of control to another person was akin to giving control and faith to your doctors. Buyers and Sellers are in some way putting that level of control in their agent.
Safe landing, weather it is in real state, skydiving, or in cancer survival is the greatest possible outcome that keeps McCraken coming back for more.
