I am finally a homeowner! I can’t express in words how exciting this is for me. I have always wanted to own my own place and now I finally do. I could not have done it without the help of my big sister. Let me be a little more specific: my big sister in the sorority. She has done so much for me. I don’t even know where to begin. She flew up and helped me with everything. She helped me find a great mortgage company. She interviewed different Richmond home security companies. She even made me a cheat sheet about homeownership. She did so much and I will be forever grateful. There were times in college when I wondered if sorority life was for me. Then I look back at all the fun and friends I made through the sorority and realize it was the best decision of my life. There have been a lot of times when I have felt lost, but one of my sorority friends was always there to comfort me. I am one lucky girl!
