Ethan and Brittany recently bought a home in Tulsa, Oklahoma for $160,000. They are the youngest home buyers I've ever worked with, the previous was a tennis pro Olivia who was 23 and Alex, a nurse, she was also 23. Ethan is 22 and Brittany is 19!The average age of a first time home buyer in the US according to HUD is 33. So when I witness an outlier event like this, I like to review exactly what happened and ask some questions in order to motivate other people and show the steps to do something similar.Ethan did live with his parents for two years, he is a chef at a country club. Brittany says about him, "He doesn't spend money, he works and saves." He managed to save over $20,000, the down payment and closing costs for their home was a little over $12,000.Starting at a younger age giv...

Your roof is the first line of defense and resistance for your house when it comes to safeguarding it from the weather, the wind, and other situations; yet, the question remains as to how durable and safe it is.If an impact resistant roof shields your home, you can confidently say your home is strong and safe. Impact-resistant roofs are built to withstand hail, wind, and water. The strength of an impact-resistant roof relates to the products used during installation. One of the most common items is impact-resistant shingles (hail-resistant shingles). These durable shingles come in many styles and can be made with asphalt or metal supplies.Mimicking the look of wood, slate, and traditional shingles, impact-resistant shingles are combined with cement, plastic, resin, polymer, and rubber. ...

Another Memorable Independence Holiday Raymond Gary Lake July 4 2021 I do believe this was the BEST Independence Holiday at Raymond Gary Lake!  We were able to spend most of the week at the Lake... admittedly some of those days were spent showing lake lots to prospective buyers instead of with family... but Don and I enjoyed that part of it too!  We love meeting folks that appreciate our little lake at Fort Towson, Oklahoma and want to own a piece of its shoreline.  BUT business aside, we've enjoyed our family this week.  GOD has blessed us with a loving family and some of them were able to come enjoy the holiday with us.  We are in the Grand and Great Grand stage of life and let me tell you, IT'S THE BEST STAGE!  Those facts combined are what made it another memorable Independence Holi...

Lakehouses for Generation after Generation Raymond Gary Lake Oklahoma I grew up on the river. A real River Rat.  Some of my days were spent following my father around in the woods and on the river banks, with me trying to put my foot into the footprint that he had just raised his boot from.  Now that will teach you to take some mighy big steps as a child.  Being on the water or on the water's banks has always felt natural.  Eating fresh caught fish was a a common occurence.  Only after I was grown and didn't live on the river any longer did I realize that only a small percentage of Americans have waterfront homes.  Point2 Demographics says that there are less than 10,000 waterfront residences in the United States.   When Don and I bought our first waterfront location on Raymond Gary Lak...
