Good morning, folks!
I’d like to introduce our newest agent, Steven Ward. Steven is coming to us from a CB affiliate in Auburn, AL and has settled here in LaGrange with his wife, Michelle. I thought it would be a good idea to have a little Q&A to let y’all get to know Steven a little better.
1. Why did you and your wife settle in LaGrange?
I must first say LaGrange is the “biggest small town” ever! It is the Friday night football games, the parades throughout the year, and the hospitality of locals that make our town the outstanding community that it is. It is these things that got the attention of me and Michelle. Upon graduating from college, we had the opportunity to move elsewhere, but could not give up life in LaGrange.
2. You find an envelope taped to your car with $100 inside. How do you spend the money?
If I were to find $100 taped to my window, I would probably use it to enjoy a nice dinner and evening out with my wife.
3. Name one piece of advice you would give all prospective homebuyers.
Determine what you can comfortably afford. Often times, buyers see homes that have a lot of “bells and whistles”, but it doesn’t work with their price range. This can be very disappointing for a buyer. I recommend taking a look at your finances with a Mortgage Officer early in the process in order to determine the most comfortable price point. This allows you to narrow your search, which makes the “shopping” process much more enjoyable!
4. What’s the best book you ever read?
I’m not a big reader. However, I do enjoy a few magazines regularly…Georgia Outdoor News, Mens Health, and Money Magazine.
5. All important question – Who’s going to win the SEC championship?
Should I take the polls into consideration or hang in there with my favorite team? I’ll continue supporting the Auburn Tigers…War Eagle!
