Jessica Rosato forms Jet Coast Realty Team

Jessica Rosato, Broker Associate with Nestler Poletto Sotheby’s International Realty, has announced the formation of The Jet Coast Realty Team, which will serve the real estate needs of buyers and sellers worldwide.

“Jet Coast provides memorable, customized experiences creating loyal customers for a lifetime,” she said. “We are active ambassadors of our community, valued members of local and national organizations, and caring supporters of non-profits and charities. We are continually striving for excellence and always upholding the highest standards of ethics and service in a positive, informative, fun environment.”

RAPB+GFLR Young Professionals Network glean to help Palm Beach County Food Bank

The Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale Young Professionals Network (YPN) spent a day of giving—and gleaning—to benefit the Palm Beach County Food Bank as part of the Florida YPN Community Outreach Day, a state-wide initiative whereby YPN chapters throughout the state give back to their communities through volunteer events.

Realtors, affiliates and their families worked on a cucumber farm in western Delray Beach, where they “gleaned.” Gleaning is a food recovery strategy that allows farmers to donate fresh crops that are deemed “unmarketable,” but equally safe to eat and nutritious.

“It’s amazing to see our Young Professionals take time out of their busy schedules to give back to the community,” said YPN Committee Chairman Chase Johnson, a Realtor with Continental Properties. “As advocates for the communities in which we work, we wanted to do our part to ensure the Palm Beach County Food Bank has crops to provide for the food insecure.”
