Holiday Blitz Build! ABOR Foundation/CB United NW makes a difference

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

It is the season of giving and there’s no more perfect way to celebrate than to help build a home for a deserving family. Our Austin Board of Realtors® Foundation is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity for the fourth annual “Holiday Blitz Build.”

Our NW Austin Coldwell Banker Office as well as other offices signed up to help make a family’s dream of home ownership become a reality. On Wednesday, November 30th, 11 of us from our NW office showed up on-site at 8 am to help with our happy and enthusiasm on! “Home for the Holidays” was the motto of the day!

The home being built is for the Zerihun Family. Shiferaw Zerihun and Bedy Alemu Bezenesh emigrated here from Ethiopia in 2012 after a long immigration process. We had the pleasure of working side by side with Shiferaw who came out and helped build with us!

What a feeling of accomplishment knowing we contributed to helping this family realize the value owning a home will bring to their lives! We were grateful for playing a part in delivering this home by December 13th!

Our office believes in giving back to our communities through the charitable contribution of our time, resources and expertise. Our commitment to our core values is made possible through passion and energy of our diverse team members. I’m proud to work with my colleagues because we all believe our success is measured through the value we create for our customers and communities we serve.

As a previous educator, I recognize the learning process never stops. Teaching involves listening. Today I enjoy learning about buyer's and seller's needs and goals to guide them through a successful transition in life. I'm a business manager who will guide you through the process, and help make the important decisions whether you are buying or selling. I offer you hands-on Professional guidance for all your real estate needs. Reach out to me if I can help...512-346-1799 or

Dorie it's so wonderful to see deserving families having the chance to be in their own home. Habitat for Humanity is an awesome non-profit.  And you are all amazing people to assist in this process - bless you!

Dorie, I did this for H4H here in White Sulphur Springs helping build homes for families. It was hard work, but a total of 8 homes were built.  Helping others is a great feeling!

Good morning Dorie.  Interesting you should mention this as just last week we took a load of clothes etc, to our local charity so those who are not as fortunate as we could stay warm this winter.

Hi Dorie -- while I have supported Habit for Humanity efforts, I'm not so handy with a hammer or any power tools.  Good for you and your CB United NW team for your active participation.   Nice slideshow too.

That is a wonderful thing to do. Helping with a Habitat house is giving a hand up and a chance for new starts.
