BHN recognizes Anna Rigali as First Home Buyer of 2013

As Co-Chair of BuyHolyokeNow, I was honored to present one of my great friends Anna Rigali with her Buy Holyoke Now Post Purchase packet. Anna took full advantage of all that BuyHolyokeNow has to offer. Rita Maccini from the Holyoke Housing Authority along with Linda McQuage at the Office of Community Development, assisted Anna in securing her BAP Grant. $4,999 towards down payment and closing cost assistance. Holyoke Credit Union serviced Anna’s MassHousing Loan, she not only received a great interest rate and amazing loan terms, she saved $500 off her closing cost from HCU! Anna also took advantage of our extensive Attorney network offering discounts on their closing costs and services. She saved $100 with Attorney Sarah Miller. Representing more of our great partners, Anna used Bresnehan Insurance Agency, A long time Holyoke company. That’s just the beginning too, post purchase, Anna will save 20% off her HG&E utilities for 3 full years as a first time buyer to Holyoke. She also received free or discounted tickets to local attractions and a discount card from BHN that entitles her to discounts at over 35 local shops, restaurants and service providers like electricians and roofing companies. Buy Holyoke Now wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Mayor Alex Morse. We look forward to the year ahead and spreading the word about why you should “BuyHolyokeNow”
