Real Estate Brokerage with Heart: Grandson of Holocaust Survivors Pledges Commission to Pittsburgh Synagogue, Sets Business Priorities Straight

December 4, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--On the heels of the Pittsburgh Synagogue massacre, Joshua Garay, grandson of holocaust survivors and founder of GarayRealEstate.com, is pledging a portion of new real estate listing commissions to the survivors in Pittsburgh. Garay’s grandmother, Olga, is a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. His grandfather, Joseph Garay, survived as a partisan active in the underground movement. Both are active not only in holocaust organizations, but also synagogue philanthropy.

“The Pittsburgh atrocity is devastating for everyone,” says Joshua Garay. “When founding my own boutique brokerage a dozen years ago, my priority was to create a business model that donated a portion of sales back to charity. It was important for me to build my own shop in order to set my priorities straight. Working for others at larger real estate firms would never allow me the flexibility to create my own path.”

Garay is committed to helping a variety of causes including Multiple Sclerosis charities, a disease his mother, Carole, passed away from a few years ago.

“Whether it’s donating to our local church, synagogue, cancer charities or other foundations, we can all do more to help fund the organizations important to us,” Garay concludes. “In fact, I will donate a percentage of sales in 2019 to the chosen charity for any new seller that signs an agreement with our company.”
