Having Fun, Helping Others in Shelby County

Wow, can people involved in real estate be a fun bunch! The best part is when you can do something fun and help people in need at the same time, which is what happened the morning of November 19th in Pelham.

The Oak Mountain Realty Network—a group of Shelby county area real estate agents and associates in related fields—held its annual Christmas Auction at The Margarita Grill on Highway 119.

Lots of folks helped raise money for SafeHouse and Family Connection, Inc. Special thanks to RE/MAX Advantage agent Robert Scott, who was a great auctioneer. This was a team effort with many different folks helping out, including agents, attorneys, lenders, home inspectors, insurance providers and other associates.

What makes this even better, according to Carmell Cantrell, a Loan Officer with First Federal Mortgage, is that—for every dollar raised during the auction—the state of Alabama will kick in a matching amount.

Some scenes likely won’t be forgotten soon—who would have ever imagined seeing John Holliman, an attorney with Holliman & Shockley in Pelham, showing off men’s holiday underwear?
