Taking the Guesswork Out of the Homebuying Experience for Veterans

contributed by Jen Reed

Veterans sacrifice a lot for this country. To help honor these sacrifices, special programs were put in place to aid vets in getting and keeping a home. Unfortunately, not all veterans know that these programs exist. Even for those who do, they may not realize exactly what options are available for them and may apply for a program that doesn’t really match their situation ideally. Based on the programs, veterans can qualify for loans under 3 percent, so there are certainly some advantages to checking it out.

KBT Realty Group Donates Bicycles to Local Kids

contributed by Jen Reed


The practice of a real estate agent providing a client with a housewarming gift is not uncommon. But KBT Realty Group of Wilmington is shifting gears in 2020. For every closing that occurs during the calendar year, the organization will donate a brand-new bicycle to be given to a child in need in the greater Cape Fear area.

The program, which was launched on January 1, 2020 will enable KBT Realty Group to expand its charitable activity, which has included work with the American Heart Association, the Miracle League, Toys For Tots, and Habitat for Humanity through KW Cares and the Keller Williams Wilmington team. KBT Realty Group is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year and according to Kirkland Pugh, president, that milestone represented the perfect opportunity to give back to the community.

New Year, New Home? Why Not!

contributed by Jen Reed


The end of the year can often spark some soul-searching. What happened in your life over the past 12 months—good and bad? What would you like to achieve during the year ahead? Lose weight? Travel? Try something new? Perhaps you want to find yourself a new home?


Don’t wish. Make it happen.


Could you use an extra room, or more space in your kitchen? Does your current place need a new roof or windows? If you’re spending time trying to figure out which walls to knock down and how to make improvements so your home presents a better fit for your lifestyle, maybe it’s time to find a new home that fits your needs.
