BLUFFTON, S.C. – Sales associates from Cora Bett Thomas Realty & Associates proudly donned work gloves and wielded hammers to participate in the 2007 Blitz Build for Habitat for Humanity, organized by the Hilton Head Area Association of Realtors. The event, which took place January 18-20, 2007, united more than 50 area Realtors to build a new home for a local family in need.“This home is located just a few blocks from our Bluffton office,” said Pat Bergere, director of consumer services and relocation for Cora Bett Thomas Realty & Associates. “Like Habitat for Humanity, we also enjoy providing homes for area residents, so the connection is a natural one. Giving back in this manner seemed like a perfect fit.”Located in the Brendan Woods neighborhood in Bluffton, this is the sixth area home to be either built by or paid for by area Realtors. In addition to providing labor, the Hilton Head Area Association of Realtors also contributed $40,000 to cover the cost of the land, infrastructure and building materials.
