Giving back

At ERA Shields Real Estate, we are uniquely positioned to understand the needs of the communities where we live and work – thanks to our deep roots in the state of Colorado. That’s why we encourage, empower and celebrate giving back.


Our Commitment to Our Community

We at ERA Shields have a strong commitment to our fellow neighbors. We all share the same community; so to us, investing in its future just makes good sense.

In 1998, we established our Community Leader’s Volunteer Committee. Our primary efforts have focused on children and families at risk, housing, and quality-of-life organizations. However, our committee reviews all solicitations received from non-profit organizations.

We are honored to be a past recipient of the Community of Kindness Award for Small Business; the only real estate company in the area to receive this award.

Community  Events

Peaches! Peaches! Peaches!

This is an annual fundraiser organized by our real estate agent, Lars Gronhagen, on behalf of ERA Shields Real Estate, for the benefit of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).  Funds raised go to MDA for the purpose of sending MDA clients (young and teenage) to the annual MDA Muscle Camp held up in Empire, CO.  The camp gives the clients (ages vary from year-year) a chance to relax and have fun for a week while giving their family and caregivers a much-needed and well-deserved break. Order your small or large box of peaches today!

Orders Must be received by Friday, August 4, 2023
