When Kate Galetto first started her boutique real estate agency Galetto Real Estate, she never imagined that her perseverance and dedication to make her business a success would also give her the ability to fund some amazing Australian research into Parkinson’s disease.
We featured Kate as a Shake It Up Hero in 2013 (you can see her full interview here), but since then, Kate has continued through her business to support Shake It Up and our efforts to find the cure for Parkinson’s Disease.
Kate started Team Galetto as a way to give back. As such Galetto Real Estate donates from every successful sale, $250 from its service fees to a charity of the vendor’s choice, with a particular focus on Shake It Up!
No stranger to hard work, Kate sees her greatest reward as being able to set an example for her children. This has meant balancing running her successful boutique agency with raising a family amongst a sea of large franchised competitors.
On top of this, Kate has led by example in supporting not-for-profit organisations through Galetto Real Estate. In fact, to date, Kate and her team have raised over $7,000 for Parkinson’s research in Australia.
Having the support of Kate and the team at Galetto Real Estate is a real privilege for Shake It Up and we are humbled by Kate’s ongoing support of Australian Research and helping us to make Parkinson’s Disease a thing of the past.
