Beyond Real Estate Founder
My name’s Preston Webb and I’m the founder of Beyond Real Estate, a local real estate group of Keller Williams in San Diego. The idea behind my mission is pretty simple. As a Realtor, my days are mostly dedicated to helping people buy and sell their homes. However, as much as I love what I do, I’ve always felt like something was missing in my life and in my business.
Then, one day I realized that through real estate, I have a unique opportunity to make a huge impact by contributing to causes greater than myself or my business. By leveraging my resources and connections within San Diego communities it is possible to go beyond real estate to truly make a bigger difference in people’s lives.
So what does that mean?
In the past year of my life, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet a good number of people doing some amazing things in our local communities; individuals who devote their time, money, and efforts to following their passion of helping others.
These folks, including founders of nonprofit organizations, community volunteers, educators, civil servants and many others, have been a huge inspiration to me.
Every time I’ve met one of these individuals, I’ve walked away feeling energized by the depth of their selflessness and the stories of how they’re giving back to make positive changes in others’ lives.
After one of these recent encounters, an epiphany hit me like a ton of bricks. Even though most of my time is dedicated to helping my clients achieve their real estate goals, I needed to go beyond that and find a different way to assist those groups who are giving their all to help people in need, and making this world a better place.
It started with the idea that I would begin donating part of my annual income to these amazing organizations, in order to help them continue with their efforts. I then realized that I could make an ever bigger impact by helping to spread their messages and raise awareness for each of these groups and the incredible resources they’re providing.
To take it one step further, I decided I could find other real estate professionals with a heart for helping others in a unique way and corral them together, growing this idea into something much bigger than I ever imagined. And that’s how Beyond Real Estate came into existence.
Our ultimate goal is to create a worldwide network of real estate professionals who share passion for helping others and are willing to give back in various ways to make a positive impact in the world; and it starts right here in San Diego, California.
