Habitat + Realty Executives of Flagstaff = Love

Our office partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona began in 1998 when a client of Wayne McCormick's invited him to join the Family Partnership Committee. In 1999, Wayne was unable to attend a meeting due to showing homes to clients and his wife Debra attended in his place; this resulted in Debra also joining this committee. In 1999, Debra McCormick became the Chairman of this Committee and was chairman for two years. While on the committee (this is when you actually showed up with a hammer and paintbrush and helped out alongside the families), they helped build three homes; two off Lone Tree and the first handicap-accessible home in Sunnyside.

After leaving the committee, Wayne and Debra continued to contribute to Habitat yearly through tax credits.  The Agent partnership began in 2014.  Kim Geile-Gonzalez, another realtor in the office, is also a member of the board.


There are currently 27 Agents from Realty Executives of Flagstaff who participate in the Realtor’s Initiative. Simply put, Agents participating in the Realtor’s Initiative donate a portion of their commission to Habitat for Humanity towards building an affordable house. In the month of December 2022 Habitat appealed to the public via radio advertising that Realty Executives of Flagstaff would “match” donations.

Jane Horton, Development Director for Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona says, “Just from my experience working with the team at Realty Executives of Flagstaff, it has been so exciting and beyond joyful to build relationships with the absolute best of humanity who simply share the passion and mission of Habitat for Humanity in this community of Flagstaff. The team is always willing to come to our events, home dedications, photo shoots, etc., and promote our efforts in collaboration with print media, social [media], etc.”
