Today Step Up was the recipient of a $5,000k contribution check as part of the launch of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services – the first-ever lending of the Warren Buffet brand to what was formerly Prudential Realty. Congratulations to David M. Cabot, President & CEO of California Properties Southern California and Central Coast! And a huge thank you to Chair Martha Mosier and the Selection Committee of the Berkshire Hathaway Charitable Foundation!
