Realtors Help Others Build New Lives Across Central Arkansas

CONWAY, AR., – Helping people buy and sell homes across Central Arkansas is a true calling for Bill and Janet Tobias. With Crye-Leike, REALTORS in Conway the husband and wife team is dedicated to helping people of all walks with a desire to have their own place to call home.


Six years ago Bill and Janet took their real estate passion and desire to serve others to the Faulkner County Habitat for Humanity organization, which is dedicated to building quality homes for individuals and families. For two years Bill has served as the organization’s President.


“Habitat has been important to me in helping others and giving back to the community,” said Bill Tobias of Crye-Leike Conway. “Although fundraising and administration have been important areas I have worked on, I most enjoy new home groundbreakings and dedications.”


Bill and Janet’s involvement was recently recognized as they were selected as the 2009 recipients of the Golden Hammer Award by Habitat for Humanity of Faulkner County. The Golden Hammer Award is presented each year to a volunteer that has shown exceptional commitment to helping further the mission of Habitat.


“We are very honored by this award and have been very blessed in our lives and are very thankful for all we have,” said Janet Tobias of Crye-Leike Conway. “Giving a hand up to people in need is the least we can do.”


Faulkner County Habitat recently launched a ?ReStore’ which offers quality used and surplus building materials at a fraction of normal prices, while helping to fund Habitat for Humanity house construction projects. The Faulkner County ReStore, which accepts donations of surplus materials, is located at 1025 Front Street in Conway and you can email them at or phone (501) 513-3244.


“We have so many great people helping at Habitat but I am most proud of our team starting the ReStore,” said Bill. “While Janet and I are honored by this recognition from our colleagues and peers – it’s what we do to help others that is the greatest reward.”
