Good Samaritan Foundation: Operation Drumstick

Pastor Mike and I at the Good Samaritan Foundation.  We've worked with them frequently and this year Operation Drumstick has put together so many full Thanksgiving meals for families in need.  Each box contains a full meal set.  We are always glad to volunteer and help with their organization.

ODU Football!

I had so much fun this past Saturday watching the ODU v. UTEP game and tailgating with Laura Pollock!  Laura is one of my top lenders from Monarch Mortgage and we've worked together on many deals.  It was great celebrating the ODU victory with her!

Facts About First Time HomeBuyers

     These are some very entertaining and revealing trends the Real Estate Market has seen from first-time homebuyers.  Forwarded to us from our friend Thomas, it is interesting to find that an estimated 74% of renters "want to buy a home but are afraid they won't qualify so do not even try!"  That is an astounding statistic!  As a realtor, it's my job to help people invest in their future and even possibly the biggest savings account they'll ever open - their home!  I know people who look and look at resources like Zillow and Trulia with only dreams of buying, but believe me when I say that it may not be so far-fetched of a goal.  There are so many programs, incentives, and grants available to first-time homebuyers, it's just a matter of knowing and taking advantage of these opportunities.  Even without the best credit or a smaller downpayment it's possible to buy a great home and invest in yourself rather than wasting vast amounts of money on rent.  Don't let fear or doubt stop you from reaching your goal of homeownership.  It is truly what brings me pleasure as a Realtor, finding my clients the best possible home for them!
