Thanks Nick Johnson at Bank of the San Juans for sharing this!

TODAY'S HOME SELLERS REAPING HIGHEST PROFITS IN 12 YEARS

Many home buyers go at it without having a Realtor (R) represent them because they think it will cost them. Not so! Commission is typically paid by the Seller, so there's no need to forgo having someone who is looking out for YOUR best interests and representing YOU in the transaction. No need to worry through the contracts, inspections and contingencies on your own--give me a call today and let's get you into your dream home! 970-444-2519

Record Achievements - Building Homes For Heroes®

Record Achievements - Building Homes For Heroes®

Changing the lives of our amazing veterans is what Building Homes For Heroes® does and in 2018 they broke records welcoming our heroes to their mortgage-free home. 

   

 

The supporters of Building Homes For Heroes® drive the organization's success. In 2018, the organization gifted 16 homes in 16 weeks before Christmas and 5 of those homes were gifted all in one month - December! The CEO of Advance Auto Parts became the Honoree at the annual gala by being the 4 Star Charity Navigator organizations largest cash donor. The relationship between the two entities continues to grow stronger which allows Building Homes for Heroes® to gift hundreds of more homes.

Happy New Year

Dear Friends,

        As 2018 comes to an end, we wanted to share the accomplishments of the year.
        Nationally, Building Homes for Heroes was blessed and honored to have gifted thirty "mortgage-free homes" in 2018 to military men and women who had sustained life-altering injuries from the Iraq and Afghan Wars. These homes bring the total to 160 since the inception of the organization.
        Building Homes for Heroes® has Charity Navigator's highest rating of Four Stars with 93% of all money raised going to program.
        Locally, our two fundraising efforts were quite successful. The Fourth of July Family Fun Day at Buckley far surpassed our previous year. It was the first clear, blue sky day since the fire of early June. It seemed like the whole town was out.
        The Labor Day Weekend was also successful with refreshment sales at both Durango Harley Davidson and the 10th Street Block Party over the three day period. Our efforts over this weekend ride on the coattails of The Four Corners Motorcycle Rally which has shown new life thanks to the Stewardship of our own Harley Dealership.
        Our heartfelt thanks go out to you all. Your gifts and support are what drives us each year. Think of it, 160 families just celebrated the holidays in mortgage-free homes across the nation thanks to people like you. Gifts from a grateful nation.
        Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year. God Bless America.

Sincerely,
Building Homes for Heroes®
Durango Fund Raising and Awareness Committee
