EXIT Associates from across the Maritimes came together to golf in support of Habitat for Humanity. “Raising $12,000 for a one-day event is incredible,” says Ed Martens, EXIT’s Sr. VP Of Franchise Sales – Canada, who took part playing a round with fellow EXIT agents.
“I had the privilege of riding on the ‘EXIT’ bus from Halifax to the golf course with a full complement of happy real estate agents anxious to hit the greens. From a corporate perspective we just can’t say enough about our franchisees and agents who participated. Their dedication and good-hearted spirit is uplifting and inspiring. The organization of every detail was outstanding.”
Spearheading the annual event is Jon Walker, Franchisee of EXIT Realty Inter Lake, and his team who do a first-class job with getting sponsorships and the scheduling of every moment. Jeremy Cowan, Franchisee of EXIT Realty Metro arranged the bus that transported a large contingent of agents from multiple offices from the Halifax area.The monies raised will be directed toward a Habitat build in Liverpool, NS, which is scheduled for later this year.
Habitat for Humanity is EXIT Realty Corp. International’s charity of choice, and the company has now pledged over $1.5 million to Habitat for Humanity efforts across North America. “Fundraising events hosted by EXIT Franchisees and Associates like this one, are in addition to corporate contributions and illustrate the truly caring nature and depth of initiative on the part of our people,” says Martens.
