Austin’s #1 Best Place to Work Kicks Off Construction and Pledges 1,450 Volunteer Hours to 4th Annual Home Build

AUSTIN, TX – Realty Austin raised the walls on our 4th annual home build for Austin Habitat for Humanity on the morning of Wednesday, September 9, 2015. Our team kicked off construction by raising the exterior walls of the new home being built for Saw Par Ku and Anna Naw and their two children Serena Naw and Samuel Ku. Over the next three months, 250 volunteers from Austin’s top workplace will work alongside the future homeowners to build their new home.

In a partnership with our agents, Realty Austin will volunteer 1,450 hours and donate over $85,000 to sponsor a home for the Ku family. Since 2012, Realty Austin has partnered with Austin Habitat for Humanity to build homes committing more than $290,000 and volunteering over 6,000 hours to improve the lives of four deserving families.

Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “The 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 experienced with Saw Par on wall-raising day made kicking off this home build even more meaningful. Each year we are inspired by the hard work and determination of the Habitat families, and our passion to help others achieve their dreams of homeownership grows stronger with each build.”

Representatives from Austin Habitat and the Realty Austin team were on hand for the groundbreaking and wall raising including some of the company’s top charitable contributors: Jason Taylor, Sarabeth Peterson, Jordan Johnson, Cristina Valdes, Adam Walker, Lisa Munoz, Brandi McDaniel, Mark and France Clausen.

Erin Samson, Interim Vice President of Development for Austin Habitat for Humanity said, “We are grateful to have the support of Realty Austin to build a home and help raise awareness of the growing need for affordable housing in Austin. Realty Austin stands out as a company full of love for the community and ready to pitch in and help its neighbors.”

The house will be completed in November and dedicated with a celebration on November 14, 2015. To participate in the build, donate online at share.habitat.org/realty-austin-build.
