Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC is to donate funds for the construction of 150 homes in an upcoming New Story community in Mexico.
At the 2017 Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event in Las Vegas, Brett Hagler, CEO, New Story, gave a moving presentation of its mission to build communities of homes for $6,500 USD per home. Brett challenged the 2400 attendees to reach a goal of 100 home pledges during the two-day meeting. In the 32 hours that followed Hagler’s on-stage appearance, the goal was surpassed with over 150 homes pledged. Once fully-funded, these homes will provide a safe, sustainable living environment and unlock the potential for families to thrive.
Sotheby’s International Realty affiliated companies and sales associates made individual pledges to raise funds to cover the $6,500 USD cost of a sustainable home for a family in need. Once the pledges are funded all donations raised through Sotheby’s International Realty affiliated companies and sales associates will be applied by New Story to hiring local workers and buying local materials for the construction of homes in Aguascalientes.
Philip White, President and CEO, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC, said, “A safe home provides the foundation for health, education and opportunity. When I met Brett and the New Story team, I felt inspired by their mission to build sustainable homes for those in need. Teaming up with New Story allowed us to extend the services we provide daily: to help people discover homes that allow them to live their best life. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the Sotheby’s International Realty network in support of this mission.”
