Amity Courtois, a native Austinite and broker at Give Realty, has always had a passion for homes and for making an impact on her community. That’s why she joined Give Realty, which has a charity-based business model in which 25 percent of the commission, after a home is purchased or sold using the brokerage, is donated to the 501(c)(3) nonprofit or faith-based organization of the client’s choice. Thus far, Give Realty has donated over $826,000 on behalf of their clients.
Courtois also prides herself in being an Austin area school aficionado, having researched many of the schools in Austin in the quest to find the perfect school for her own son. Her dedication to education and helping consumers achieve the homeownership dream makes her an extremely valuable asset in real estate.
