breast cancer cause
Property agents at Starr Partners St Marys, Erskine Park and Penrith will donate 5 per cent of all commission on new listings to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
The agency will turn all advertising pink while its sales team drum up additional support for the worthwhile cause.
"Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in Australia with one in nine women developing it in their lifetime," Starr Partners Penrith director Salman Rizvi said.
"As a team we strive to achieve maximum listings for the month of October, smash our 2012 record and raise awareness of the National Breast Cancer Foundation in the process - it's great to see all the franchisees rallying together."
