EXIT Realty Continues Support of Habitat for Humanity With Quarter Million Dollar Pledge

Homeowner: This Has Definitely Been the Best Experience of My Life

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - At its 13th annual convention held recently in Nashville, EXIT Realty Corp. International continued its corporate sponsorship of Habitat for Humanity pledging a further $250,000 bringing the total pledges to-date to $2.25 million.

"We're so proud to be associated with an organization like Habitat for Humanity," said EXIT Realty Founder and CEO, Steve Morris. "Habitat's philosophy of providing a hand up, rather than a hand out, is right in line with our corporate philosophy."

A portion of every transaction fee collected by EXIT Realty Corp. International is earmarked for Habitat and to-date, the company has sponsored 17 home builds across the continent. The most recent build was in Nashville just prior to the kick off of the convention.

EXIT Realty partnered with Nashville homeowner, Stella Johnson, a 22-year-old single mother of three children. She will finish her sociology degree next year and works full-time after her job was eliminated following the devastating 2010 floods. Moving her children to a safer neighborhood was paramount in Johnson's decision to apply to Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity, which requires homeowner families to invest 200 hours of sweat equity, which includes classroom instruction and helping build their own and other homes.

"This has definitely been the best experience of my life -- it's very life-changing for me and my children," said Johnson. "I'm very appreciative of EXIT Realty for giving me the opportunity of homeownership that I probably never would have had. The neighborhood is beautiful compared to where I live now. Moving will give me a fresh start and the opportunity to start my kids off on the right track. It's a good change that I need right now."

Along with the dedication ceremony for Johnson's home being held this month, EXIT Realty is also dedicating a home in partnership with Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"Habitat for Humanity makes the dream of homeownership come true with so many wonderful families like Stella's," said Morris. "EXIT Realty is privileged to be a part of it."
