One of state’s largest real estate companies joins forces to raise money and awareness for kids


PHOENIX (October 7, 2013) Community is a priority for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona Properties, one of the state’s largest real estate firms. With more than 650 individual sales executives and team members throughout Arizona, the company is working together to help the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

We are so grateful to Mark Stark and the whole BHHS Arizona Properties team for their ongoing support of our patients and families,” said Steve Castle, corporate development officer for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. “Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’s commitment to supporting our families, not only through financial contributions but also running drives and volunteering, makes a significant impact on the care we are able to provide to Arizona’s children.”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices holds a special place for Castle, who was a real estate sales executive with the company prior to joining the hospital. 

 “I have had the tremendous pleasure knowing Steve since expanding our operations into the Phoenix marketplace back in early 2011,” said Mark Stark, CEO of BHHS Arizona Properties. “I am so glad to be able to continue working with him while supporting the tireless efforts of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Our sales executives are some of the most generous people I have ever had the privilege of knowing, and both individually and together we look forward to helping the hospital achieve its goals.”

 As a Phoenix Children’s Hospital partner, BHHS Arizona Properties will be a sponsor of Ignite Hope on Saturday, December 14. Ignite Hope is the hospital’s annual candlelight walk that includes lighting its holiday tree and singing carols for patients to enjoy from their rooms.  Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona real estate sales executives and employees will also make individual donations to support the hospital’s Crews N Health program for homeless youth and adolescents and its offices will hold donation drives and adopt families to provide gifts during the holidays.

 “We have 10 offices throughout Arizona, all with individuals who are passionate about their communities,” said Stark. “In fact, this summer our offices held a fun competition to see who could donate the most water to the Phoenix Rescue Mission. They collectively donated more than 53,000 bottles, which was a huge help to the Mission during the hottest time of year.”
