CBRE Rebuilding Day!

Employees from CBRE completed an amazing rebuilding day yesterday, November 17th at the home of Julia and Floyd in the Genesee Park neighborhood of Seattle.  This was Rebuilding Together Seattle's first partnership with CBRE and we could not have been more impressed with their work ethic, organization, and positive attitude.

Julia suffered a fall four years ago and is now wheelchair bound as a paraplegic.  The changes to their lives left Floyd overwhelmed with housework.  CBRE volunteers painted both bathrooms and the kitchen, cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom, removed clutter that had built up in the family's basement, cleaned up the front and back yards, installed a new kitchen range, updated several door hinges so Julia can more easily get in and out of the home, constructed a ramp to the basement entry way, updated much of the electrical system, and much much more!!

Julia was able to get into her basement, once a beloved work area, for the first time in four years thanks to the new ramp and cleaning.  Huge thank you to Project Manager, Peter Kelly, and Volunteer Coordinator, Carolann Andrews!

Amazing work!! Thank you CBRE!!!

The crew!

The plan

PM, Peter, working hard!
