Buying your first home can be exciting, overwhelming, fun, and scary all at the same time. How much can you afford; where should you buy; what should you buy; what can you get; have you considered every factor; when should you get an inspection; should you get pre-qualified; should you ARGHH…. too much to do!!!

Fortunately, we’ve got two tried and true professionals, Brian T. Wolf and Gene Walters, here to share their time and knowledge to help you find that dream home of yours – or maybe just your first home eventually leading up to your dream home.

If you are thinking of jumping into the realm of home ownership, you should definitely attend this fantastic event.

When: Wednesday, April 29
Time:  7 pm to 9 pm
Where: Re/Max at Home, 3215 Algonquin Rd, Rolling Meadows, IL

Brian T. Wolf is a residential real estate expert with more than 10 years experience as an investor, owner, and broker. Brian honed his midwestern work ethic serving 6 years in the Illinois Air National Guard while completing his bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In addition to spending time with his wife and two children, Brian is active in the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce, serving as Membership Chair for his CHAMPPS group, and a member of the Arlington Heights Toastmasters Club. See Brian’s book on selling houses fast and for more money on Amazon.com by clicking here.

Gene Walters is a Senior Mortgage Banker with HomeTrust Mortgage Corporation. As your Mortgage Banker and Broker, he has the option of picking the best lender for your situation, choosing the best that the marketplace has to offer that fits your needs. He has built his business on repeat customers and referrals since 1997 and his only goal is that you are completely satisfied with the end result and how we got there.

They’ve put together a fantastic presentation in order to give you the information you need to get started down the path of home ownership. And while this is geared towards first time home buyers, if you’re looking to step up (or down) into another home or if you’ve bought and sold in the past and you’re looking to buy something again, then there’s still plenty of great information here for you.

So if you want to get into the home ownership realm, come on out, bring a friend or two and help us spread the word. We’ll see you there!

Join us for our monthly first Friday social! Open to all members and guests!

This month, we will be meeting at Frato’s Pizza located at 628 South Roselle Road in  Schaumburg.  They are past winners of several categories of pizza including oustanding specialty pizza.  You can order off the menu or go in and share a pizza.

September Days to Remember

Too often, we jump into fall and fail to understand the opportunities that September gives us to plan
and host an event that brings people together. Whether a Jaycee event or not…hint, hint…September is
a great month to bring people together for any number of reasons – a nice meal, a celebration, perhaps
even a membership drive. Looking for a justification? Well, September is full of reasons to make a guest
list and have people over. When you get stuck thinking of a new reason to bring everyone together, try
one of these and you’ll always have an excuse for a September gathering.
 First Sunday after Labor Day: Grandparents Day – pick up the phone and invite them over for
lunch, dinner, or just to hang out. The chances you have to spend time with them aren’t
increasing, and you may just pick up a few nuggets of wisdom.
 September 21st: International Peace Day (U.N.) – a day to celebrate a world without war and
think about the sacrifices that all nations make while in conflict. Recognized by many nations
around the world, we haven’t reached the goal of zero conflict between countries yet, but we
are a more peaceful world than a decade ago.
 September 23rd: Autumnal Equinox – the beginning of fall is celebrated when there are exactly
12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness in a particular day. Say good-bye to beautiful
weather, hello to football, and party like it’s 1799 at the Colonial Harvest Festival…yeah, these
have been around a while.
 Fourth Friday of the month: Native American Day – this day honors and celebrates Native
Americans as the first residents of this great land. A perfect opportunity to learn about the
traditions and cultures of a treasured part of our nation’s history.
Do you have any suggestions for an off-beat event that brings people together? It can be to educate or
to celebrate, but whatever the reason, tell us about it on our Twitter or Facebook pages. We want to
know what motivates you to get out of the house and together with your friends or people you don’t
know as well. Share your experiences with your Jaycee brothers and sisters…then send your invites!
