AUSTIN, TXRealty Austin, the #1 Best Place to Work in Austin, raised the walls on its 6th Annual Austin Habitat for Humanity home build. In partnership with its agents, the company will volunteer 2400 hours and donate over $90,000 to sponsor a home for a deserving family.

On the morning of Wednesday, August 16, the team kicked off construction by raising the exterior walls of the new home being built for Claudia Duran and her 4 daughters. Representatives from Austin Habitat and the Realty Austin team were on hand for the groundbreaking and wall raising including some the company’s top charitable contributors: Jeffrey Schnabel and Todd Bailey. To help the Duran family, donate here.

Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “Our Realty Austin family is proud to be involved with Austin Habitat and support their goals to help heal the affordable housing crisis in Austin. The hope and joy we experience with each new family make the hard work more meaningful. Each year we are inspired by the determination of the Habitat families, and our passion to help others achieve their dreams of homeownership grows deeper with each journey.”

Over the next three months, 250 volunteers from Realty Austin and its industry partners will work alongside the future homeowners to build the new home. Companies joining the real estate company on this build include Texas National Title, The Max Leaman Team, Independence Title, Movement Mortgage, and Josh Jordan Colonial National Mortgage.
