Neighbor testimonials

Adrienne

Adrienne

“I would love to own a home. It’s something I desire and I’m intentional about bringing it to fruition. My life is really hectic, so many different things happening on a day-to-day basis. For me, there’s always room for more knowledge on financial literacy, mortgages, the resources that are out there.”

-Adrienne

Demarcus

Demcarcus

“There’s an in-sync-ness with other people out here. You don’t have to complete. You can stay in your own lane. There’s a lot of good people out here. Our credit is decent, we’re entrepreneurs, and we want to continue down that space [of homeownership].”

-Demarcus

“I am a renter, definitely an aspiring homeowner. The most important thing for me is having my own front door. So many of the new apartments feel like hotels, they feel so temporary. My own front door makes it feel like home.”

-Tanya

“I am from Bangladesh and have been here about 21 years. My neighborhood is very good. My sons have bought homes in Dublin, Cleveland, and Detroit. I tell people: buy a home and settle here, work here and stay here.”
