How we Give Back

$17,238.90+ given to causes fighting for affordable housing. Why?

As a social benefit company, we care about all the communities we are in and the effort made to provide affordable housing to those without means.

As a company  we care about people, the planet and profit. And we know that’s not that weird. Austin, our hometown, is an expensive place to live. As is Houston, NOLA, Portland, and Detroit. And increasingly the amazing, creative, artistic folks that live in our homes can’t afford them. We want to fight that battle and change the notion of what affordable housing looks like. So each tour we do we give 10% towards affordable housing nonprofits in the cities we are in. We think it would be weird NOT to give back to our community.
