Per the South Bay Association of Realtors, Dave Caskey was considered for this year's honor based on the following:
"Throughout his entire career David Caskey has always been committed to giving back to his community. He supports over 40 local charities every year. 3 years ago he started a local breast cancer awareness campaign where he commits his entire business to PINK for awareness. All advertising, including for sale signs & open house signs, print ads, flyers, everything turns pink with a message reminding family & friends to get essential screenings done each year. At the end of October, Dave donates a portion of all commissions earned in Oct to a local cancer organization. This year he was key in quickly organizing and executing the ACT mission to help Hurricane victims in Texas. Not only did he donate his own money, but he helped organize supplies, boxes, trucks and more to go aid the devastated town of Cleveland, TX. He personally left his business in capable hands and drove in a caravan of 7 loaded UHauls, 36 hours straight in order to reach victims more quickly. He currently is instrumental in the Manhattan Beach Roundhouse renovation project in memory of Harrison Greenberg. One project that is close to his heart is the Navy Seal Foundation that provides immediate support to families who have either lost their family member or are living with a wounded warrior. I'm certain that over his career, Dave has committed over $1m of his own earnings to his community and important organizations. He tries to help everyone he can. He supports schools, environmental projects, youth sports, Scouts, service personnel and so many others. He headed a project that teamed up local realtors to give back to teachers at Mira Costa by renovating their bereft teacher's lounge and coordinated the entire remodel himself. He is a community man from the heart and those who know him love him for this. The community is a community because of people like Dave setting the example."
