(l. to r.) NAR President Gary Thomas, Toni Enderli, and Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco Phillip Kilbridge

NAR has had close ties with Habitat for Humanity for more than a decade, and this year was no exception. To kick off the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Francisco, extreme swimmer (and CEO of REALTOR® of Excellence) Toni Enderli of Cape Town, South Africa will swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco on Monday, Nov. 11 (8:00 a.m. EST), with the goal of raising $10,000 for Habitat For Humanity of Greater San Francisco.

On land, 75 REALTORS® volunteered their time to work on building 28 two- and three-bedroom single-family homes on a tight, narrow one-way street. The houses will be built tall, include roof solar panels, and some will even feature ocean views.
