During the recent 2017 Sotheby’s International Realty® Global Networking Event (which brought together approximately 2,400 members of the Sotheby’s International Realty network, more than 155 of the brand’s companies represented from 34 countries and territories worldwide) we were able to learn about the wonderful work New Story is doing to help build sustainable housing from New Story’s co-founder and CEO, Brett Hagler.

New Story, which builds communities of homes for those in need for $6,000 USD per home, challenged attendees to pledge 100 homes for a new community in Mexico. At the end of the event, attendees surpassed the goal by pledging over150 New Story homes.


Knoxville Living was so inspired by New Story and our Global Network of Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate partners, we have decided to donate $100 from every closing in 2018 to New Story.  Help us help New Story build a home!! That’s 60 closings – we can do it with your help!

Watch below for an introductory video from Philip White, president and CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC and Brett Hagler, CEO and Co-Founder of New Story.
