At the 2017 GNE, September 25th – 27th, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates heard about “New Story,” a non-profit that works to build homes and communities around the globe. With the goal of 100 homes for a new community in Mexico, they left the GNE with more than 140 pledged!
Laurie Cadigan, the owner and CEO of Barrett Sotheby’s International Realty purchased a home at the GNE.
The goal of New Story is to build homes that provide safety and consistency for families. These lead to improved health, income and opportunity, and education. The homes are built to withstand time and potential disaster, as a long-term solution to enable a place for generations to grow and thrive.
Each home is built by local workers, creating not only a new home, but economic opportunity for community members. The homes are also built with local materials. The to-be home owners are part of the conversation and building process, with their long-term goals in mind.
Once the homes are built, donors receive a video of the family they have sponsored!
