New Story Charity Home Mexico

Sotheby’s CEO Philip White recently visited a family moving into their new home built by New Story Charity and funded by Suzanne Perkins, formerly with Sotheby’s International realty and now with Compass.

In September 2017, while still partnered with Sotheby’s International Realty, Suzanne was thrilled with the opportunity to personally pledge one new home for the Sotheby’s brand’s charitable partner, New Story Charity, who also attended the Sotheby’s Global Networking event in Las Vegas. Recently her pledge became a reality when a thankful family visited their newly constructed home in Toloplan, Mexico, located in one of two communities bequeathed by Sotheby’s International Realty agents attending the event.

Sotheby’s CEO Philip White recently visited the communities and told Suzanne, “This is the house you funded and the family that will be moving in, hopefully before Christmas. They are very grateful. You changed their life.”

New Story builds thriving communities of homes for those in need for $6,000 USD per home. New Home had hoped that attendees would pledge 100 homes for a new community located in Mexico, and was overwhelmed when attendees like Suzanne pledged over 150 New Story homes.
