Realty Austin Agents Restore Veteran’s Home with Rebuilding Together Austin

Read time: 3 minutes

AUSTIN, TXIn honor of National Military Appreciation Month, Realty Austin and Veterans United co-sponsored a two-day home repair project with Rebuilding Together Austin for Vietnam War Veteran, Betram Allen.

More than 30 Realty Austin agents volunteered to repair Bertram’s home — including Albert Allen, who is not only a Realty Austin agent but also an Army veteran, Vice President of Rebuilding Together Austin, and Bertram’s nephew.

Albert said that it was amazing to see two organizations that he’s a part of come together and support a dear member of his family. “The combination of the funding from Veterans United, the partnership with Realty Austin, and then [finding out] that someone I care about was going to get [this] assistance [was] pretty cool!”

We’re so grateful to all of our amazing volunteers who came out, worked hard, and braved the heat to give back to a Veteran in need! 

In the wake of  Winter Storm Uri, Bertram and his family were faced with extensive damage to their home. “What [Realty Austin] is doing here is something that I really appreciate,” Betram said. He went on to say that “although at one time I could’ve done some of these [repairs],” that as a senior citizen he would’ve been overwhelmed trying to repair the home himself. 

Realty Austin is proud to support and serve our military service members. As an organization founded upon the principle of giving back, we honor and appreciate the commitments and sacrifices each and every one of them has made.  “It’s vital in this business to give back,” Realty Austin agent Justin Phillips said, “I like giving back whenever possible to our community and [my fellow] veterans.” 

Rebuilding Together Austin is on a mission to revitalize homes and help transform the lives of our neighbors in need within the Greater Austin area. Here’s how you can help.
