“We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate team to work with. Oh, and as an added bonus, they made a generous contribution to an organization we hold near and dear to our hearts once the sale was complete.
It was a surprise on settlement day.”

During the Covid-19 Global Pandemic, times were uncertain for everyone. We are dedicated to supporting our clients, friends and family and spreading good cheer in any way we can. After reaching out to the community for nominations of people in need, we surprised four families with a special hot meal delivery. Thank you to everyone who nominated someone!
“I am touched that you thought of my mother and her husband as one of the recipients of a SPECIAL meal delivery. She texted me a picture of the beautiful note you had written and told me all about the delivery. She is so happy! You really brightened her day! I Face-timed her and she was already eating the candy! I told her about the initial call for help email from the Kittleman Group and our communications. Once again, I am touched by your thoughtful gesture to help the community and people you don’t know.” ~Sheila
“What a beautiful gift to wake up too. It makes me feel valued and loved by my friends and community. I was feeling sad because I wasn’t going to be with my son and his girlfriend for Easter this year. I thought what will I do. Now I know. I will split this wonderful meal in half and deliver to their porch. We can face time and eat together. Thanks so much for reaching out in such a loving way. It means so much.” ~Gina
We are so honored to partner with Grassroots Crisis Center to help make a difference in our community, especially with amazing success stories like these!
Grassroots works with residents in their emergency shelter program to develop a plan to achieve their ultimate housing objective. Each month, residents are accomplishing their goals and moving out on their own. But many need a little extra help to make their new house a home. Together, with the community, our team has fully furnished homes with new and gently used furniture, accessories, cleaning supplies and special treats to get residents off to a great start. If you or anyone you know would love to donate items, please reach out to Katie Jones: [email protected].
With your help, The Kittleman Group participated in two events for great causes in October 2020. On October 3rd, we sponsored the Howard County Every Step Counts Autism Walk with nearly 400 participants in person and virtually. The event raised $95,000 for the Autism community through this socially distanced event.
On October 25th, The Kittleman Group hosted a 5K to raise awareness of Lewy Body Dementia. All proceeds from the event and donations went directly to the Lewy Body Dementia Association, INC., which supports those affected by LBD through outreach, education and research. Our team alone raised $6,833 in total!
Grassroots provides a safe, caring and stable place for families to come during difficult times. It’s a place to heal, regroup and plan for the future. However, being in a shelter is not normal for a child. So often, these children, due to circumstances beyond their control, miss out on the joys of a carefree summer.
In 2019, The Kittleman Group partnered with Grassroots to host a Field Day for the kids. It was a day for them to enjoy just being a kid and having fun. FUN makes us feel free and helps us believe anything is possible!
The Field Day was held the day after our annual KittleMANIAC Crab Feast, where we raffled off baskets to support Grassroots. If you’d like to find out how to become a KittleMANIAC or help Grassroots, please call us. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our next generation.
