As a Realtor, I get the chance to work with some pretty amazing people, and help out in both big and small moments of their journeys. Today I want to introduce two wonderful couples that recently came to me in search of a new place to call home.
James and Margaret Owens
The Owens were referred by my daughter who attends church with them at Church of the Highlands. The Owens had a young daughter and were expecting their second baby. I helped sell their home in the Fosters area, which they had bought that house originally to be close to James’ work. James changed jobs, eliminating the need to stay close in Fosters. Margaret also wanted to be in a neighborhood near other moms, giving them another reason to move. Her wants included a neighborhood with sidewalks so she could stroll the baby. As a stay-at-home Mother she felt a little isolated in the Fosters area. We got their home sold, and found them a perfect house in the North Hampton neighborhood. Sidewalks, Verner school zone, friendly neighbors and a family atmosphere. North Hampton is also so convenient to grocery stores and shopping. They are extremely happy!
Rev. Mark and Susan Lacey
Susan lived in Birmingham, and she and Mark were planning their wedding. He’s the pastor at St. Mark United Methodist Church. Mark had always lived in a parsonage (church owned home) and very much wanted to own his own. Of course Susan did too. We weren’t able to find the perfect house for them, but instead we found the perfect lot for building their own, brand new home. I helped them buy a large lot in the Townes, and introduced them to Chad Gore, a local builder. Construction will begin soon. I loved that they invited me to a “blessing of their home” before construction even began. Everyone involved in the process including: Chad and his plumbers, the flooring company, painters, brick mason, etc. were invited and met at the construction site one afternoon. Mark asked everyone to introduce themselves. We held hands and Mark prayed the sweetest blessing on his and Susan’s home. I loved it!
Each client isn’t simply a business transaction, but a home, a story, and a dream that I work tirelessly to fulfill. If you’re looking to buy or sell, I hope you consider letting me be a part of that story.
