Broker Blake Morar and his associate, Carrie Shoaf, of Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty have been hard at work selling and buying homes for Jim and Tammy Pierce. The Pierce Family Children’s Advocacy Center (PFCAC) in Walton County is named after them. Blake’s team recently sold the Pierces’ home in Sandestin and donated more than $13,000 of that real estate commission to PFCAC.
Tammy Pierce, president of the Children’s Advocacy Center board, has worked with Blake with the Pierces’ numerous real estate transactions for the past several years. She commented, “We have been so impressed with Blake Morar’s professionalism and have used him exclusively. He always has his client’s best interests at heart, is a great negotiator and has become a great friend with a huge heart.”
In addition to Blake’s and Carrie’s recent commission donation, Blake has supported PFCAC with a room donation in 2016, and he purchased a live auction package that directly benefited the center. At the check presentation, Blake issued a challenge to area real estate companies and businesses to encourage them to donate some of their profits to PFCAC to help the kids. He said, “This is an exceptional local cause and I can’t think of a better effort to support.”
Operating two centers, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. Its child-friendly centers house a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, ECCAC staff and volunteers.
