Debbie McNeal, Working Hard To Get You Home

Debbie McNeal has lived in San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country for over 50 years. She has spent over 30 years in management in the Finance & Credit Services Industry, which included mortgage loans, credit services, loan collections, and foreclosures. This experience and knowledge has helped assist clients with mortgage concerns and understanding the entire lending process. After years in the finance industry, Debbie moved on to sales and marketing in the Disaster Restoration business. Information gained during her time there cultivated skills in marketing properties so they will sell faster and bring the best possible price in the market.

Debbie loves being in real estate and helping people realize their dreams. Recently a letter was sent directly to D’Ann Harper, CEO, Broker / Owner, from a client who shared their experience:

I recently sold my house in SA after 39 years. It was tough emotionally for me but I had a real estate agent that was warm, caring and straightforward. She assured me to “look where you are going” not where you’ve been. Then she found the perfect house for me.

I just want you to know how grateful I will always be to your agent, Debbie McNeal. Debbie is friendly and professional. She is honest. I think she won me over with her work ethic, professionalism, and overall knowledge if the process. Anything I asked….. she had an answer or got me the answer.

Debbie bent over backwards to get both deals done. She kept me informed and she kept me calm. It is a huge change for me. I am so thankful I had Debbie who made it easy and fun!  Please know she really is a great agent. She knows her stuff. I love my new house and I love Debbie McNeal.

Thanks for a great experience with one of your agents.

N. Faldik, Ph. D

Mason’s Mighty Superheroes, A Follow-Up

We recently brought you a story about Cindy Enloe, REALTOR® and her participation in Mason’s Mighty Superheroes. On Saturday March 25th a crowd of supporters gathered to show off their superhero powers alongside Mason “Ace” Martinez.

Held at the Heights at Stone Oak, the race honored 8 year old Mason. On June 21st 2016 just one month after moving to Texas from Tampa, Florida Mason was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Since then, Mason has spent over 35 nights in the hospital and hundreds of doses of chemotherapy and over 15 outpatient lumbar punctures to test his brain and spinal fluid for any “kryptonite”. At one point his bone marrow was occupied by 93% and his blood by 50%. Through his struggles his family and community in the Heights at Stone Oak/Hardy Oak Elementary area has loved and supported him. On July 28th, Mason “Ace” Martinez reached full remission!

To help support Mason and his family a Superhero Race was organized to raise money for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.

U.S. Rep Joaquin Castro kick started the race with a short speech in a statement to the San Antonio Express News Castro said, “I got back from Washington late last night, and I wanted to support Mason and his family. It’s really special to see so many people from the neighborhood here to support him.”

Amid all the children donning their favorite super hero costumes, were so many supporters just happy to be a part of such a wonderful cause.

1st Home Buyer Exercising VA Loan

Unknown-1Just over 32 years ago Mr. & Mrs. Rolando Castro, first-time homebuyers, purchased a new Ray Ellison home. Using the Veteran’s Assistance financing program in conjunction with the Texas Veterans Housing Assistance Program, the Castros were the first homebuyers in the state to close their loan under this program.

On January 30th, 1984 a closing ceremony took place in Austin with Governor Mark White and Land Commissioner Garry Mauro. San Antonians Rolando and Mireya Castro made history as the first to receive a Texas Veterans Housing Assistance loan. Ray Ellison, chairman of the board of Ray Ellison Industries, Inc., was also on hand to congratulate the new homeowners.

Fast forward 32 years and the Castros were finally ready to sell their history-making home. Jane Bash, REALTOR® at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Stone Oak Sales Office brought us this story. Bash currently represents the couple who completely remodeled this home prior to listing it. In an ironic series of events, the new home owners set to close on this home will also be using the VA Loan program. Approved by Texas voters in November 1984, veterans can combine their $20,000 state loan as a down payment with their eligibility for a VA guaranteed loan and do not have to make a down payment or buy mortgage insurance.
