Realty Austin Gives $10,000 to Keep Austin Affordable in Support of Affordable Housing Bonds

AUSTIN, TX–June 28, 2013

Realty Austin announced its support of Keep Austin Affordable. Together with its team of agents, the company donated $10,000 this week to the coalition of business, faith and community leaders.

Jonathan Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “One of our company’s core values is giving back to help improve the communities in which we work and live. Because of this commitment, we are proud to support Keep Austin Affordable who aims to help the thousands of families who cannot find affordable housing; the 1,975 homeless Austin ISD students; seniors on fixed income; people with disabilities; and veterans.”

Keep Austin Affordable and its supporters are calling for the Austin City Council and voters to invest $65 million in housing bonds this November to relieve the affordable housing crisis.

Elliott McFadden with Keep Austin Affordable said, “We know Realty Austin has a commitment to affordable housing in Austin. We are so pleased and honored Jonathan and Yvette are part of our steering committee and made this contribution to keep housing affordable to everyone.”

In a partnership with its agents, Realty Austin supports local charities that accommodate the area’s housing needs. Last year the Realty Austin team donated $65,000 to Austin Habitat for Humanity and $60,000 to Foundation Communities.

Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “Giving back is an integral part of the heart and soul of our team and our love for the Austin community. Our team’s willingness to help our neighbors in need to have a better quality of life makes me proud.”

Through its support of Keep Austin Affordable, Realty Austin will continue to support local charities that accommodate the housing needs of low income families in the Austin area. Headquartered downtown, Realty Austin has five locations and over 200 agents serving the Austin community.”

About Keep Austin Affordable
Keep Austin Affordable is a coalition of business, faith and community leaders calling for investment in affordable housing by putting city bonds back on the ballot in November 2013. We believe Austin is a more healthy and livable city when low wage workers and their families can find affordable housing. We also believe we have a responsibility to help seniors on fixed income, veterans, people with disabilities, and families with children.
