As Thanksgiving approaches, we had the opportunity to give back through one of our favorite charities, Habitat for Humanity. Our E&V Habitat for Humanity build day was a success - despite the rain, cold and mud!

We had advisors from multiple Engel & Völkers shops including the Intown Shop, the Buckhead Atlanta Shop and the North Atlanta Shop all working together to get this home in shape for its final build day!
