Formed as a 501(c)(3) public charity in 2015, Sharing Connexion began with a passionate desire to use real estate skills to provide solutions for nonprofits and affordable housing organizations. Sharing Connexion’s Founder and Board President, Ed Anderson, established and remains the Chief Executive Officer for a for-profit real estate investment firm. Upon identifying other real estate professionals with extensive experience and complimentary desire to give back with their expertise and skills, the board of directors and advisory board were formed. With the Board of Directors’ combined 230+ years in real estate experience, the organization came highly equipped with the expertise for how best to serve this charitable community. The pursuit to identify and assist with real estate solutions for charitable organizations, especially affordable housing organizations, began. The leadership set out to develop a business model and programs based on the market it serves.
