Each year associates from all of our Austin area offices come together to serve the community in something other than selling homes.  The second Thursday in May we celebrate our Cultural Leader Mo Anderson's birthday by volunteering for community service all over Austin.  It is a day our Realtors® put down their cell phones, pen and paper to pick up shovels, hammers and cleaning supplies.  Know as RED DAY,  it is a time we all help to Renew Energize & Donate to the Austin community we know and love.


Each office takes on a project in their community to spread the love and service as much as possible.  This year, Keller William Realty Lake Travis Realtors® have spent weeks preparing for one of the largest garage sales their commuinty has ever seen.
