A Great Experience

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Bert Williams contacted GROW South Dakota in need of housing as she had recently moved to the area from Ohio and was renting a one bedroom apartment.  Her needs were specific; she is legally blind, so locating a home that would be easy to get around in was of great importance.


Once she secured a house that would meet her needs, it was time to research her options, and that is where GROW South Dakota came into play.  GROW South Dakota staff were able to assist her with a home loan, an inspection of the home, and additional down payment assistance.  Bert also received assistance to address and repair a couple of small issues in her credit report.


After the process was completed, she and her son were able to move in to an energy efficient, newly renovated, three-bedroom home.  The new home met her expectations and Bert refers to it as “manageable” and is greatly appreciative that it’s located in a “nice neighborhood”.  When asked what she thought of her experience at GROW South Dakota, Bert stated “The staff are excellent to work with.”
