CEO, Austin Habitat for Humanity
Austin Habitat for Humanity offers the dream of affordable homeownership for families and individuals who would have thought it would be impossible. For nearly 35 years, Austin Habitat for Humanity has been on a mission to end the cycle of poverty housing. With over 470 homes built built by staff and community volunteers, this extraordinary non-profit holds true to their belief that everyone deserves a decent, affordable place to live. Austin Habitat CEO, Phyllis Snodgrass, digs deeper into the importance of bringing people together to build strong, stable and self-reliant communities.

WHAT WE GIVE MAKES LIFE
Giving back is the cornerstone of our culture at Realty Austin. This stems directly from our mission to support those who need safe, affordable housing in Austin. We work as a team to fundraise and volunteer for organizations that have a lasting impact on multiple generations of Austinites.
Since 2010, Realty Austin’s generous agents have volunteered over 11,000 hours, donated $1,000,000 of their commission from each transaction and raised over $100,000 from industry partners to support our strategic partnerships with Austin Habitat for Humanity, Foundation Communities, Community First! Village and SAFE.
