Richardson-Based RealPage Partners with Habitat for Humanity International

The global provider of AI-enabled software platforms for the real estate industry said it's kicking off the partnership "with at least 14 build projects across the U.S." RealPage will also pursue other "engagement opportunities" in partnership with local Habitat affiliates in India and the Philippines.

Richardson-based RealPage—a global provider of AI-enabled software platforms to the real estate industry—has entered a strategic partnership with Habitat for Humanity International “to help provide affordable, decent and safe places for families to call home.”

RealPage said it’s kicking off the partnership with at least 14 build projects across the U.S., along with other “engagement opportunities” in partnership with local Habitat affiliates in India and the Philippines.

“Supporting communities is a long-standing tradition at RealPage,” the company’s CMO, Margaret Herndon, said in a statement. “Just like our passion for innovating to support the multifamily industry, giving back to the communities in which we serve is core to RealPage’s DNA. We’re honored to partner with Habitat for Humanity to help individuals and families across the world create that special place to call home.”

RealPage added that its updated philanthropic program, RealPage Cares, “seeks to make a tangible, positive impact in an area where RealPage is deeply connected—the housing industry—through both monetary donations and contributions of RealPage employee time.”

The company said that program will focus on “expanding affordable housing opportunities worldwide” and “offering development opportunities to underserved communities.”

Tolli Love, chief development officer at Habitat for Humanity International, said her organization’s vision is of “a world where everyone has a decent place to live, but we cannot do that work alone.”

“RealPage’s engagement will enable us to work alongside more families in more communities around the world,” Love added in a statement. “I’m excited to see what we build together in 2024 and beyond.”

RealPage was acquired by Thomas Bravo in 2020 in a $10B deal

Founded in 1998, RealPage was acquired in 2021 by private equity investment firm Thoma Bravo in an all-cash deal that valued the company at around $10 billion. RealPage said the acquisition has enabled it “to realize faster growth and innovation in serving more than 24 million rental units from offices in North America, Europe, and Asia.”

RealPage has been listed as a Great Place to Work in the U.S., the U.K., Colombia, India, and the Philippines.
