There’s no way to really sugarcoat this past year- it’s been a lot. We’ve learned to live in a “new normal” following the global pandemic, but still discovering what that “normal” is. With rising interest rates across our nation, the present shortage of new homes, and continued inflation it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and become a scrooge this holiday. However, Thanksgiving gives us a chance to choose a different mindset- to choose gratitude.

The Dawn Van Nieuwenhuyzen team operates out of a mindset to love and value all individuals seeking homeownership and to create a customized experience that helps them meet their financial goals. This idea guides us every day as we work to create opportunities for homebuyers. And while we, like you, are thankful for our families, health, and safety, we also want to take a moment to mention why we’re grateful for the opportunity to help people on their journey to homeownership

Here are just a few things we’re grateful for:

1. The chance to educate homebuyers.

Mortgage is complex, even for the most informed person. We love helping people learn about the mortgage process, understand their own financial goals, and find a loan product/program that works best for them! Empowering the buyer with knowledge as they become a homeowner is so rewarding.

2. Helping US Veterans and servicemen and women

Our team loves when we get the opportunity to help the men and women and their families who have served and continue to serve our country. We’re committed to helping veterans and active-duty personnel know about their VA home-buying benefits and entitlements. Thank you to those who have served and continue to serve our country.

3. All the people who’ve trusted us to be their lender!

We’re overwhelmed with gratitude to everyone who has let the Van Nieuwenhuyzen team help them on their home-buying journey. And we’re exceptionally grateful for those who continue to refer us to their friends and family. Nothing makes us more grateful than someone who chooses to work with us because their friend told them about their great experience with our team!

As this year comes to a close, join our team in taking a moment to brighten your perspective with gratitude. Find at least three things you’re thankful for.

If you have any mortgage questions, feel free to reach out. I'd love to connect!
