Bringing the Homeless Home – a KW RED Day Experience
“For the second year in a row, we were able to partner with Community First! Village,” Shannon says. “270 volunteer members strong this year, we’re the largest group they’ve ever worked with. We love their missions, we enjoy the work we get to do with them, and we will be back again next year.”
Also a member of the KW Agent Leadership Council, or ALC, Shannon was involved in the decision to raise enough money to purchase one housing trailer for a Community First! resident. After raising the $32,500 needed to purchase the trailer, Keller Williams’ COO Mary Tennant matched that amount, which allowed ALC to purchase two trailers, thus, giving two new residents a home off of the streets.
As far as what she learned working alongside her own Schmitz & Smith team, Shannon says, “We can overcome a challenge, we have a willingness to help, and we are most successful when we divide our tasks based on strengths.” And when it comes to what she learned about her fellow Austin Portfolio real estate agents during their time together, she says “This is real life. These are things we all do; giving back to our community is a common theme among all of us. It was really nice to have us all working together to do work for others.”
The other Austin Portfolio agents who assisted at RED Day had similar experiences to share.
