eXp Realty and new story
BELLINGHAM, Wash., June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Through a joint initiative with international non-profit organization New Story, eXp Realty exceeded its goal of raising $600,000 to build 100 new homes in Morelos, Au Mexico. eXp’s fundraising effort began in May 2021 in response to a 7.1 magnitude earthquake that devastated Morelos, Mexico in September 2017.
From June 9-11, eXp Realty management—along with a realtor and eXp contributor who won a raffle to attend the trip—will visit the area to see the homes the donations have made possible. Glenn Sanford, Founder, President and CEO of eXp World Holdings, personally matched $300,000 in contributions.
“I am so proud of our agents, brokers and eXp Realty employees for their generosity and support of this life-changing initiative,” Sanford said. “It’s gratifying to see the impact of our efforts to provide housing that will transform this community.”
It is estimated that 1.6 billion people worldwide currently live in inadequate housing. New Story aims to change that with innovation and through partnerships such as eXp Realty. Working with local partners, New Story is transforming communities with safe and sustainable homes using Ecoblock. This resilient building material made from compressed earth is four times stronger than traditional cinder blocks, is more affordable than traditional building materials, easier to reuse and creates less waste. The construction approach also fueled the local economy by sourcing local materials paid for at fair prices.
eXp Realty is headquartered in the United States and opened brokerage operations in Mexico in November 2020. It was the first Spanish-speaking country in eXp Realty’s global expansion and the perfect fit for the community culture of the company.
“New Story is honored to partner with eXp Realty,” said Brett Hagler, Founder and CEO of New Story. “Their commitment to excellence and innovation perfectly reflects our DNA as an organization, and their generosity will now allow hundreds of people to benefit from the life-changing gift of a forever home.”
