Wedding Registry: The Gift of Home!

When it comes to creating your wedding registry, there are so many options!

The traditional registry at Macy's, Bed Bath & Beyond, Pottery Barn or your local home furniture department store has been the leading option for thousands of couples over the years. Nowadays there are other options for couples who have been sharing a space together for a few years and do not need more furniture, kitchen gadgets or appliances. We now have cash registries such as Zola, Honeyfund, and Wanderable, where your guests can give cash toward your honeymoon, a charity of your choice or help you reach your goal of a down payment on a home!

We believe the registry is a great opportunity for couples to reach for the stars! Becoming first time home buyers with the help of your family and friends is the best example of community support we can think of. We want our couples to feel empowered and knowledgable about their options when it comes to being first time home buyers. It's important to have the right team by your side to be properly guided through the entire process of getting pre-qualified and knowing all there is to know!

Being new homeowners ourselves, my husband and I can certainly attest to the importance of having a well experienced realtor each step of the way.
