Planting Roots in Pleasant Valley

By Beth Bonita, June 3, 2019

Lacey and Moussa are the very definition of hard-working and dedicated! They’ve spent the last five years going to school, working multiple jobs, raising their 3 and ½ year old son, and they even moved in with family in order to save for the down payment to make their dream of homeownership a reality.


Family and community are everything to this family, so finding just the right home for hosting holiday and community gatherings were of the utmost importance to them. We needed a home with a generous sized kitchen and open dining/entertaining spaces.  We found a few that came close, but this one stood out and felt truly special to Lacey and Moussa. Nestled amongst the trees, every window looks out onto the lush canopy and makes this home feel like a treehouse. They could envision their son Mustafa growing up in this home, gardening, and hosting all their loved ones in this beautiful space so close to nature. This home not only had the generous living spaces that they needed, but it was also positioned perfectly on a flag lot which allows them more privacy than they’d ever dreamed of.


Congratulations on finally having all your hard work pay off and finding a home to call your own Lacey, Moussa and Mustafa! We could not be happier for your family or more honored to have been a part of your process!
