This past January, construction began on a home in Bridgeland for a wounded veteran and his family. We have had the opportunity to be a part of their journey and are honored to be able to help provide a home for this deserving family.
U.S. Army Specialist Clifford Betcher, his wife Wynne and their son Grayson were given the news while on the field during a Texans’ playoff game that they would receive a mortgage-free home in Bridgeland. Since then, Beazer Homes has been busy building the home and we had the opportunity to surprise the Betchers a second time.
Recently, the Betcher family was invited to the homesite with the expectation of doing a pre-drywall walk through. When the family arrived, they were greeted by Operation Finally Home, Beazer Homes and Bridgeland for a heartwarming experience.
More than 500 notes decorated the studs of the home and the outpouring of love for this family was tremendous. Notes were collected from community members, staff from Beazer Homes and Bridgeland, contractors who are donating time and materials to build the home, the Houston Texans, the Greater Houston Builders Association, students and staff from Pope Elementary, and members from The Bridgeland Community Supports Veterans, Inc. The family will always feel the love and support that surrounds the walls of their new home.
Construction is expected to be complete this spring. Keep an eye on the progress of the Betcher’s home here.
Bridgeland is pleased to announce a new Realtor recognition program – Spotlight Realtor of the Month. Real estate agents are an integral part of the homebuying process and recognizing superstar Realtors can be a helpful tool in connecting agents with families that are buying and selling a home.
Each month, we will showcase one Realtor who has had the most success in Bridgeland during that month and feature them. January’s winner is Melissa Land and we took a few moments to sit down with her and learn a little bit about why she loves her job and how she helps clients achieve the goal of home ownership. Congratulations, Melissa for being our first Spotlight Realtor of the Month!
Why did you become a Realtor?
“After spending almost 10 years working in both sales and management for a homebuilder, I saw there was a need for a Realtor that specialized in helping international buyers understand the process of purchasing a new home. I reactivated my real estate license and partnered with an international real estate consulting company in March 2016. I have found success working with international buyers due to the level of detail I can provide in the new home process. I enjoy learning about their culture while working with them to accomplish their goal of owning a home in the U.S. The international buyers that I have worked with love the Cypress area and Bridgeland is always at the top of their list to visit!” Read more ›
