President and Managing Broker, Fifth Avenue Marketing | Matching Gift Sponsor: Fifth Avenue Marketing
O ver the past 18 years, Jamie Squires has worked her way up at Fifth Avenue Marketing from advertising to senior vice president and managing broker. The agency’s motto, “Bringing people home” fits how she feels about the industry and her work. No matter the capacity or the challenge, Jamie wants to help people who need a home find a home.
One of the ways Jamie gives back to the community is by bidding on nonprofit projects. As well, her firm helps by giving out warm clothes, socks and meals and donating to local charities. They’re always looking for new ways to give back to their community, especially Surrey and the Fraser Valley. ifth Avenue has its own ‘Bringing People Home’ initiative and fund set up where a portion of each commission earned is given back to the local community.
What stood out about the Options’ discretionary youth fund to Jamie was the description of how it is used to change lives. From mothers needing modest daycare help to finish a degree and give her and her child a better life overall, to helping young children with older siblings in gangs escape the lure of gang life and more. It shows how just a little can change multiple lives for the better early on.
Jamie is looking forward to creating awareness of the different issues that affect people in the Surrey area but especially to the importance of helping our youth in need today to create a better tomorrow for everyone.
