This New House: New Year, New Condo?

Last year, the Marketing Team seemed to be all on the same brain wave. Brad, Rick and our colleague Lizz, who left Educators to start her own photography business, all bought houses.

After listening to their eye-opening experiences all last year and the challenges they faced, I thought that this year would be a great time for me to start my own house-hunting adventure with a slight twist: embarking on the condo journey. Anyone who knows me is aware that I am ALWAYS on the go. I am a person who likes to keep busy and try new things – so I need a house that can keep up with me and one that I can keep up with. So as my rent continues to spiral out of control in my perfectly located downtown Milwaukee apartment, I thought that it was finally time to take the next step into adulthood by searching for my own home.

As I take the first step of the journey, I am looking forward to sharing my experiences, the ups & downs of this process and HOPEFULLY in the end, I may end up with a home to call my own.

Steve Jobs once said, “If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know it when you find it.”

So, wish me luck, share any advice for me below and let us know if you have any questions! We love to hear from you and can’t wait to hear all your stories of your first time buying a house.
