Keller Williams on the Water Sarasota Sponsors 3rd Team Build Day

March 22nd, 2019

Keller Williams on the Water Sarasota agents have sponsored two Team Build Days with Giveback Homes to support affordable housing in their community, and on March 22nd, 2019, they came out for their third Team Build Day, to help build a home for a single mother of two boys. 


Meet the family:

The lack of affordable housing in close proximity to our workforce is a growing problem in Sarasota, an issue that Turquoise knows firsthand. Turquoise works for the School Board of Sarasota County, and her income does not support the high cost of rent or payments for a traditional mortgage.

Turquoise and her two boys have been living in Manatee County and she struggles with the daily commute to the boys’ schools and then to her work. Her move will have a big impact on her transportation expenses and give her more time to spend with her boys. But most importantly, she is looking forward to her boys being able to live within their school district so they can be involved in after school activities and spend time with friends after school.

Our home in Hammock Place will provide a permanent, affordable place for me to raise my boys. We plan to create many beautiful memories together in our new home.


We are grateful to Keller Williams on the Water Sarasota agents and staff for making this story possible and for helping to better their community, one real estate transaction at a time. To view more photos from the Team Build Day, click here.
