After the final tally was over, real estate agent Candi DeMoura realized her goal to bring in 777 pounds of food was a lucky number indeed. A residential real estate specialist who concentrates on San Diego and La Jolla, DeMoura was able to raise more than 1,118 pounds of food to benefit the San Diego Food Bank in her annual food drive.
DeMoura accepted donations for the drive at the weekly open houses she conducts for her sellers. “A big thank you goes out to all the sellers and listing agents who opened their homes to be used as drop off locations,” said DeMoura. “So many people went out of their way to make donations. It was very heartwarming to see the generosity and compassion of our community on full display.”
DeMoura, who knocked on more than 700 doors asking for donations in her drive, has a long track record of giving back. A member of the Junior League, she has coordinated Toys for Tots campaigns, donated hair to Locks of Love, and wrapped gifts at the mall for Rosie’s Place. Though DeMoura has also run the Boston Marathon three times, she describes her experience during the holidays last year with Promise 2 Kids as one of the most inspiring.
“There is an anonymous donor who provides enough funds to cover a shopping spree for all the children every year,” adds DeMoura. “He is a true hero to these kids and a great example of what it means to put other people first.”
Specializing in the marketing and sale of residential real estate, DeMoura has excelled as a result of her ability to constantly surpass her clients’ expectations and focus on ethical business practices. Known for her service-oriented approach and marketing skills, she has earned referrals and trust from an expansive base of clientele.
