Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando & Osceola County and the National Association of REALTORS® in partnership with Quicken Loans, will host a volunteer build day on November 3, 2016 at 7:30am at the Butler’s Preserve community, which will feature 59 homes upon completion in mid-2017. The National Association of REALTORS® is America’s largest trade association, representing over 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
“We are looking forward to having 100 volunteers on our build site working together to build a home because everyone deserves a decent place to live. A Habitat home puts families on a new path and we are so thankful for the support of National Association of REALTORS® and Quicken Loans,” shared Catherine Steck McManus, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando.
The opening ceremony will feature remarks from the 2016 NAR President, Tom Salomone, Regional Director of National Sales for Quicken Loans, Rob Eames, and Habitat homeowner, Pauline. There will also be a check presentation from the National Association of REALTORS® as they have financially supported the construction of the home they will be working on that day.
The National Association of REALTORS® is a longtime supporter of Habitat Greater Orlando and have been teaming up since 2001 to make a difference in the communities where their annual conference is held. NAR has also contributed to Habitat for Humanity abroad in Southeast Asia following the 2004 tsunami, and post-Katrina, building 54 homes along the Gulf Coast.
“I’m proud to have our members lend helping hands to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando to continue our tradition of supporting the community while helping another family achieve their dream of homeownership,” said Tom Salomone, President of the National Association of REALTORS®.
