Earlier this month we invited members of the RateGravity Agent Network to downtown Boston’s Bell in Hand Tavern for a celebration of Jonathan Cheever, a Boston-born plumber from Saugus and the first athlete to qualify for US Snowboard Cross Olympic Team competing in South Korea next month.
After a week of heavy snow and record-breaking cold, agents were happy to relax and socialize. Karen Zoeller of Century 21 Adams enjoyed the evening. “I loved getting to spend time with friends and reconnect with acquaintances,” she said. “Every time I get together with the team at RateGravity, I have a terrific time.”
The same was true for many of the recent and prospective homebuyers in attendance. “I was glad to come to a RateGravity event and show some support for a local Olympian,” said Rob Maguire, a homebuyer from Charlestown.
RateGravity recently became Jonathan’s official sponsor. Guests ate appetizers, had a drink (or two), and took home some swag. There was even media coverage, as CBS and HBO are developing stories around Cheever’s Olympic dream.
We’re proud to contribute to Jonathan’s story, and we’re thrilled to bring members of the RateGravity Agent Network along for the ride. Sean Callahan shared why he’s glad to be a part of it: “I’m always happy to work with a company that truly adds value for my clients and supports local people and organizations,” he said. “RateGravity does all of that, and tonight proves it again.”
Jonathan Cheever Knows the Value of Homeownership
Though most of the guests were agents and homebuyers, the focus of the night was squarely on Cheever, his family, and his Olympic journey. Our CEO, Patrick Boyaggi, summed it up in a toast: “The purpose of tonight is to celebrate Jonathan, who’s hard work, grit, and love for his hometown and family inspire all of us in our professional and personal lives.”
When his schedule allows it, Cheever still works in the family plumbing business. He knows first-hand how hard his parents work in order to provide him with a home. And he takes pride in supporting other homeowners through his trade.
Cheever spends much of the year traveling the world to compete in the Snowboard Cross World Cup, so he was happy to spend the night with those he cares about most. Much of his family and many of his friends were in attendance. “This is what we all work for,” he said. “No matter where I go, I’m always glad to come home.”
