Homeownership in Atlanta: New Beginnings in 2021

A new year marks the start of new dreams, new goals, new possbilities, and new beginnings. Although 2020 was tough on us individually and collectively, the year did have some bright spots.

One of those bright spots was a client named Shanae. I had the pleasure of working with Shanae to purchase her first home. Before the purchase was finalized, Shanae shared the following story with me.

My name is Shanae and I am a 32-year-old single mother of three. I wanted to tell my story to simply encourage someone else who might be on the fence of purchasing your first home.

I was raised by my father since the tender age of three. My father was a single parent due to my mother’s sudden death at the age of 22. The road has been trying but it makes this accomplishment so worth it.

You see, I am the first child ...first grandchild ...first cousin and first niece to become a homeowner in our family. This makes the testimony worth the test! I am about to change a generational cycle with the purchase of my first home in my family.  Even with this, I must add that I had a lot of “no’s” before I had someone else believe in me and in my dreams to become a homeowner.

Sometimes that is all that you need is for someone else to listen and come on board with you to tell you, I am here with you. As I prepare for my goals of homeownership to become a reality. I am beyond grateful to bring this journey to my family’s history - Homeownership 2020!

I mentioned earlier that, yes, the road has been trying. I have had to sacrifice, work hard, and compromise so much. But my resilience and drive to succeed made that call to Mrs. Janetta the greatest in a lifetime.

The going may get tough, but I never stopped going with my faith in God and my will to succeed. Here I am, more than a conqueror and the first to become a homeowner in my family. I give all praises to God!

My message to anyone and everyone is “Don't give up, don't quit, and never lose faith in God or yourself!"  The tears that I cry today are from pure joy! All my hard work has finally paid off!  I will soon be a homeowner!

Ms. Shanae

Shanae closed on her home in September 2020, becoming the first homeowner in her family. What a great testimony and a great way to start the new year!
