Choose Howard Hanna – The Choose A Home Team

Why home buyers and sellers Choose Howard Hanna and The Choose A Home Team of Realtors in Coastal Virginia.

Howard Hanna is extremely well known for quality real estate service. Clients choose our team of Realtors for their house purchase or sale based on previous transactions or referrals from others. Our Team provides service above and beyond the industry standard. Agents on our team answer and return calls promptly, and we are able to meet the needs of our clients busy schedules. Realtors on our team are flexible, assisting  our clients in Coastal Virginia from the Virginia Beach Oceanfront to Suffolk.

When you are ready to make a house purchase or need us to professionally market your house for sale please give one of us a call.

You make a home purchase or sell a home only a few times in a lifetime. So when you are exposed to all the massive advertising it is very easy to become overwhelmed.

For the First Time Buyer

We offer a free class as well as a one on one appointment with one of our class trainers. We go over the process for a stress free experience and explain some of the low or no money down programs that are available.

For the Military Buyer

This is by far one of the best choices where the Military gives you money and you choose between renting a place or owning a place.

For the family that needs more or less space due to life changes

There are times when the family has a substantial change in size. You may have found out you are about to have twins and need more space. Or your youngest child just graduated, got married and moved away.

Sit down with one of us to figure out a game plan. Some will benefit by choosing to stay in the same house and possibly just refinance your house. Others may keep the small house they out grew as a passive income producer for future retirement.

For those who just have a house they need to sell

It takes target marketing to get a house sold. Sit down with one of our Realtors to discuss the process with you.

Take a Minute and Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Choose A Home Team Gives Special thanks

to our friends and clients who faithfully support Our Team of Realtors.

As we express our gratitude, we will never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  These words were written by John F Kennedy our 35th president was part of a Thanksgiving address to the nation. Then as it is now. These words are used to convey our gratitude and appreciation for the things we have. The life we live, the freedoms we very much enjoy and our family ties.

It is easy to get caught up in how fast the time goes by after Halloween. It seems like there is no distinction for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving should stand out alone as a separate holiday. I was at a store the other day looking for Thanksgiving decorations and was told they do not carry any. They go straight from celebrating Halloween to the Christmas season.

I would like to remind everyone that there does exist a holiday between October 31st and December 25th. Please take the time to reflect on your blessings. You don’t appreciate something until you don’t have it anymore. Make your Thanksgiving dinner a place to create memories, and to celebrate good fortunes.

All of our Realtors at Howard Hanna wish everyone a healthy, happy and peaceful Thanksgiving season. Our Team appreciates your support. For our new clients we hope you enjoy your new home.

Our veterans have a special place in our greetings. They know all to well how it feels to be away from family and friends during a holiday. We hope that they have a chance to be united and celebrate the day with the thought that our continued support is with them.

We have already begun this seasons holiday festivities here in Coastal Virginia.

Examples are The Norfolk Parade of Lights, the holiday lights on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk and The Azalea Gardens lights will also soon be in full view. Take this opportunity to explore our area. Make some new memories for both the young and old, Family Friends or maybe even a Veteran spending the day alone.

Back to John F Kennedy’s quote. Do something this year to make a difference in someone’s life. Give to a charity, donate your time at a homeless shelter, or just spend more time with your family. Small acts of kindness like this are paid back to the giver in many ways. What goes around comes around really happens. May everyone enjoy a healthy and happy holiday season.

For future Home Buyers we offer a Free Home Buyer Class Once a month.  Bobby Ashburner hosts this class in one of Beach Fords Conference rooms.

please give extra thanks to our active duty military and all of our Veterans when you see them.

Coastal Virginia is home to our largest Navy Base right Here in our backyard.

Fresh New Look For Real Estate – On The Web!

NEW REAL ESTATE SEARCH TOOLS

To our many loyal clients and prospective Home Buyers and Sellers.

We are currently developing our new website ChooseMyHome.com  for coastal Virginia Real Estate!

Many of our loyal follows of the former website  Chooseahomenow.com  we hosted for many years helping people with their house purchases and still do. While it was conceived on an older computer platform lacking bells and whistles, it served its purpose.

Times have changed.

In today’s fast moving world, technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. By comparison to past years leaving us with inadequate capability for site improvement because of the original platform’s limitations.

It was clear a change was needed. We made the decision to move ahead to reflect today’s digital age and techie demands. Taking one more progressive step we in large part to take care of our current and future clients.  As we have always done in person. The Choose A Home Team’s solid commitment to  communication and service to our customers in Coastal Virginia.  From the Virginia Beach Oceanfront to Suffolk our team is now expanding to the technological aspects of our business.

Notice that the wheels are now in motion. With a full scale production of a new modernized, user friendly website standing up to present day standards.  And once again the expectations of our clients is underway.  We are pleased to announce and welcome you to the launch with its fresh new look and feel!

Once the tweaks are made the plan is to then rework the old website. Bringing it to its maximum capabilities.  Both sites will work together and not be going away.  A close observation will ensue to see which site provides the better user experience for our clients.

Confident you will find the new website more intuitive and helpful, we encourage you to browse its pages as it evolves and invite you to stay awhile!

Watch the progress and stay tuned!

Our team is a group of well qualified Realtors with Howard Hanna, our home base is the Virginia Beach Laskin Rd. office and we serve all of Coastal Virginia
