Contentnea Creek Development Company and Standout Properties Partner with Communities In Schools of NC

RALEIGH, N. C. — Communities In Schools of North Carolina (CISNC) has teamed up with local developer Contentnea Creek Development Company and the real estate firm Standout Properties to ensure area students stay in school. Contentnea Creek and Standout Properties have agreed to donate $200 per house sold in their communities as part of the CIS initiative, Lots For Learning.

“Lots For Learning is a statewide financial development initiative of Communities In Schools of North Carolina,” SAID Linda Harrill, president and chief executive officer of CISNC. “CIS continues to be strengthened because of companies such as Contentnea Creek and Standout Properties getting involved and recognizing the economic impact of keeping our students in school.”

In addition to $100 per home sold donated by Standout Properties, the onsite listing agent will also donate $100 per home sold. Currently, Standout Properties is the exclusive agency for all of Contentnea Creek Development’s neighborhoods, Ethan’s Glen, Normandy Glen, Bishop’s Grant, Windfall, and The Gates.

Standout Properties is a full-service real estate company based in Raleigh, NC. Building on over 50 years of combined experience and referrals from satisfied customers, the firm helps buyers and sellers with all areas of real estate marketing.

During the past school year, CIS served over 130,000 youth and family members and it maintains a presence in the five largest school districts in North Carolina.

When businesses and non-profits create community partnerships, it is a win-win situation for the community. CISNC creates such partnerships and provides services at schools and other sites.
