Vet­eran home­owner works with De Young Prop­er­ties and its He­roes Pro­gram to make his dreams come true

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Real Estate -

Duty, honor, coun­try and the rest of the ideals that have made and in­spired great Amer­i­can Armed Forces for gen­er­a­tions are ex­tremely im­por­tant to ev­ery­one at De Young Prop­er­ties. As Veter­ans Day ap­proaches, De Young Prop­er­ties would like to pay trib­ute to the ac­tive mil­i­tary and veter­ans alike in honor of their ser­vice, sac­ri­fice and com­mit­ment to our coun­try.

De Young is thank­ful for ac­tive mil­i­tary and veter­ans and the sac­ri­fices they make to pro­tect us all, which is why the com­pany does all it can to sup­port those who have served our coun­try, in­clud­ing of­fer­ing ser­vice mem­bers both past and present $1,500 in De­sign Stu­dio per­sonal se­lec­tions through the He­roes Pro­gram and VA loans through its af­fil­i­ate, De Young Mort­gage.

De Young Prop­er­ties, along with De Young Mort­gage, is proud to have made home own­er­ship a re­al­ity for many veter­ans in the com­mu­nity and are happy to cre­ate fi­nanc­ing op­tions to al­low for even more new vet­eran home­buy­ers, in­clud­ing Cen­tral Val­ley na­tive David Ag­bisit, a United States Ma­rine Corps vet­eran. Ag­bisit, who served in the USMC from 1986 to 1994, just pur­chased his first De Young Prop­er­ties home in De Young Trail­side at Loma Vista, lo­cated in Clo­vis.

When asked what Veter­ans Day means to him, Ag­bisit says, “Veter­ans Day is a day to honor and rec­og­nize the men and women who signed a blank check to pro­tect this coun­try and its peo­ple, re­gard­less of race, ori­en­ta­tion or af­fil­i­a­tion from all en­e­mies for­eign and do­mes­tic un­til we are phys­i­cally or men­tally un­able.”

Ac­cord­ing to Ag­bisit, when it comes to his mil­i­tary ser­vice, he is most proud of “just be­ing to serve my coun­try and to call my­self a United States Ma­rine. I take that path to heart and will de­fend this coun­try un­til I die.”

“We chose De Young Prop­er­ties be­cause of their crafts­man­ship and rep­u­ta­tion but we mainly chose them due to the fact they were the only ones to reach and to act like they cared. They've been 100 per­cent gen­uine and help­ful through­out the whole process,” he says.

Ag­bisit and his wife, El­iz­a­beth, are ex­cited about mov­ing in and know­ing the home is theirs, as well as meet­ing and mak­ing some good friends in the Trail­side com­mu­nity. “We would 100 per­cent rec­om­mend De Young Mort­gage and De Young Prop­er­ties to our fam­ily and friends,” David says.

The Fresno Bee Peo­ple’s Choice Awards are back! The Fresno Bee Peo­ple’s Choice Awards have long been an in­te­gral part of the cul­ture of the Cen­tral Val­ley by giv­ing the com­mu­nity a chance to cel­e­brate the best of the best of lo­cal busi­nesses. Whether it is long-es­tab­lished or have just come onto the scene, each busi­ness has equal op­por­tu­nity to earn an es­teemed place of honor among past win­ners. De Young Prop­er­ties is proud to count them­selves one of those win­ners. De Young Prop­er­ties has been rec­og­nized as a Peo­ple’s Choice Award re­cip­i­ent for New Home Builder, an an­nual honor given to three busi­nesses per cat­e­gory by The Fresno Bee based on votes re­ceived from the com­mu­nity, eight times.

For more than 40 years, De Young Prop­er­ties has had a pas­sion for build­ing homes, a de­sire to en­sure each cus­tomer is sat­is­fied and true ded­i­ca­tion to in­vest in the com­mu­nity. The De Young Prop­er­ties mis­sion is sim­ple: to im­prove the lives of fam­i­lies in Cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia, do right by the en­vi­ron­ment and to in­spire oth­ers to do the same.

All De Young SmartHomes are de­signed to save home­buy­ers money with En­er­gyS­mart tech­nol­ogy, pro­vid­ing max­i­mized en­ergy sav­ings while of­fer­ing qual­ity crafts­man­ship and true com­fort.

The fam­ily tra­di­tion ex­tends be­yond build­ing homes. The De Young team con­trib­utes time and re­sources to the lo­cal Cen­tral Val­ley com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing serv­ing as proud builder and ma­jor donor of the Cen­tral Val­ley St. Jude Dream Home for the last 12 years, rais­ing more than $11.6 mil­lion for St. Jude Chil­dren’s Re­search Hos­pi­tal. De Young Prop­er­ties was also the ma­jor builder and donor of a new home for a lo­cal hero on the Emmy-award win­ning ABC tele­vi­sion show, “Ex­treme Makeover: Home Edi­tion.” Whether rais­ing funds for chil­dren or sup­port­ing lo­cal schools, non­prof­its and com­mu­nity groups, De Young gives dreams and hope to the com­mu­nity.

Es­tab­lished in 1974 and well into its third gen­er­a­tion, De Young Prop­er­ties con­tin­ues a fam­ily legacy of help­ing fam­i­lies re­al­ize the Amer­i­can dream of home own­er­ship. The com­pany has built more than 7,000 homes, mak­ing De Young syn­ony­mous with qual­ity crafts­man­ship, en­dur­ing value, world­class in­no­va­tion and ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice. Proudly rooted in the San Joaquin Val­ley, the De Young team lives here, raises their fam­i­lies here and shares a deep com­mit­ment to serve the com­mu­nity.
