On Tuesday, September 2nd, in lieu of our usual sales meeting, a lot of agents from McKinzie Nielsen Real Estate helped build a house for Habitat for Humanity. We had a great time, and it was a great cause. Rosario, the person who will get to live in the house once it is finished, was also there helping. She is very excited and grateful to be getting a house. It was so nice to be appreciated.
We got a lot done, though we only worked until 11:00, which is the standard operating proceedure for Habitat for Humanity during the week. You get quite a sense of accomplishment. For me this was my first time volunteering for HFH, and it won't be my last!
