Everything Begins with a Home

 

At Sotheby’s International Realty (SIR) we truly do believe that ‘international’ is our middle name. Fundamentally we believe that we are a company of globally connected, globally conscious professionals. At our recent Global Networking Event (GNE) in Las Vegas, our Canadian real estate agents joined their worldwide colleagues in demonstrating that our shared international platform not only amplifies our collective business opportunity but also our collective capacity for social impact and social good.

SIR agents worldwide have pledged their support to NEW STORY, a non-profit organization that transforms dangerous living environments in developing countries into communities of safe, sustainable homes. This past September GNE attendees pledged funds to build over 150 homes at a cost of $6,500 USD per home. As real estate professionals, we understand the phrase that “everything begins with a home”. Only when an individual or family has the basics of clean water, proper sanitation, a floor and a roof over their heads, can they focus on income, education and planning for a better future. It is our belief that we can empower individuals and families one home at a time. To learn more about this charity, please visit newstorycharity.org.
