There were 12 potential new homeowners that attended the seminar to learn more about the advantages of buying a HUD Home. There were 30 selling agents that attended to get more information on the process of selling a HUD Home.

Not only is Coldwell Banker Action #1 in their MLS. But it looks like they are #1 in their region in the advocacy of the sale of HUD Homes! Gracious Living is honored to have one the most well respected real estate firms in Wisconsin as part of the team.

We also want to thank Scott with 1st Choice Mortgage for presenting information on the FHA 203k program. Awesome Job Kris, Rob, David, Scott, Ron and everyone that participated!
