We are committed to making a difference in our community

We Heart NELA

Our Community Giving program began in 2015 with a focus on providing funds to strengthen community action in Northeast Los Angeles county. Over the past four years, the Courtney Smith + Kurt Wisner Real Estate Team has made gifts to a charitable cause for each completed transaction and responded to additional requests, when possible.  Just a few of the organizations we are proud to have supported include:


DIY Girls (“Do-It-Yourself”) Girls’ mission is to increase girls’ interest and success in technology, engineering and making through innovative educational experiences and mentor relationships.
