Keller Williams puts people before profits. This year’s Mega Camp convention held annually in Austin Texas turned into Mega Relief after Hurricane Harvey hit on August 25. I was honored to be part of the Hurricane Relief effort. Sunday I packed for not a convention like planned but for hurricane relief including mucking boots, old jeans and bug spray. Monday I arrived in beautiful Austin and Tuesday was transported 2 1/2 hours to Katy on a chartered bus with 50 or so other KW associates. The streets in Katy were lined with entire contents of homes and business and the houses were down to the studs. We swept the homes, sprayed bleached, removed drywall and pulled nails from studs and consoled homeowners. I cannot imagine the disruption to life these folks have felt while having their entire life’s contents out on the street including picture albums, clothing, furniture and family heirlooms. I wrapped up the trip assembling care packages to tide the Houston folks over as they begin to rebuild their lives one step at a time with small gestures of encouragement. I then headed home to my home, family, and life humbled by the experience and feeling a deeper connection with all.
