Realty Austin Builds Community Through Volunteers

Read time: 3 minutes

AUSTIN, TX—Realty Austin is celebrating National Volunteer Week by recognizing the Realty Austin family and their volunteer work in the community.  The generosity, hard work, and support of our agents and staff empower Realty Austin to give back in a big way to our community year after year. Since 2010, our generous agents have volunteered over 20,100 hours, donated over $1.7M of their commissions, and raised over $175,000 from industry partners to support our strategic partnerships with affordable housing pioneers.

Jeffrey Schnabel (Image 1), Anthony Randle (image 2), Jolene Weinstein (Image 3), Gabi Leite and Rick Rabon (Image 4), Tom Thornton (Image 5), and all of our wonderful agents and staff who donate and volunteer each year are truly the heroes of Realty Austin.

Each year Realty Austin honors its top charitable contributors by inducting them into the Corazón Circle. We are grateful for our 2020-2021 Corazón Circle members, many of them perennial givers, without whom none of our organization’s charitable work would be possible.  Corazon Circle was established by Realty Austin in 2019 for RA agents and staff who give over $1,000 a year to the company’s affordable housing initiatives. 

Realty Austin’s 2021 Corazon Circle more than doubled from its inaugural 88 members in 2020 to 177 members this year during the pandemic.  The company had already taken its commitment to the next level by launching the “We’re For Here” campaign and pledging its commitment to making Austin a safer, more affordable place to live.

Yvette Boatwright, Realty Austin principal said about the increase, “My mind is blown and my heart is full at the level our team has shown ‘We’re For Here’! Not only are they the boots on the ground building affordable homes, but also they are giving generously to make Austin a safe, affordable place to live for our neighbors in need. Proving our impact is exponential when we pool together our resources and take action by volunteering. I could not be more proud of our army of volunteers!”
