What is a Real Estate Build?

In the latter part of 2017/early 2018, caring El Paso County realtors, land-owners, property managers, title companies, builders, mortgage holders, mortgage lenders, and warranty companies joined together with Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) to financially sponsor and build the first annual Real Estate Build home. PPHFH is extremely grateful to all the companies and volunteers who made the home possible.
The second Real Estate Build is now ready to be launched and Daniel Pitrone, with Keller Williams Premier, will again be our liaison and champion, together with the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® (PPAR), for the 2019/20 Real Estate Build. This house will be possible with the support of 30 real estate companies joining PPHFH to build another permanent, affordable home in El Paso County. All are invited to support the Real Estate Build!
The real estate industry is booming in El Paso County. What better way to give back to your community than through Habitat? Please join us August 17th at the Ground Blessing of the new build to find out how you and your company can be a partner on the 2nd Annual Real Estate Build.

What is expected of PPHFH?

We select a qualified family committed to partnering with the program.

PPHFH provides the land, architecture plans, construction supervisor, and materials.

When requested, we can assist with volunteer coordination and fundraising efforts.

PPHFH will clearly communicate expectations to all partner sponsors.

What is expected of a sponsor?

Each group provides a point of contact to coordinate and communicate with PPHFH.

The minimum financial commitment of sponsorship is $5,000 ($2,500 from brokerage and $2,500 from a “team” of 10 within the brokerage company).

Each group also provides a signed “Letter of Partnership”.

To participate in this project, please sign our 2019 Letter of Partnership and go to our Real Estate Build donation page.

For those donating $2,500 or more, preference will be given to work on site as an Adopt-A-Day.
