Message from Aundre’

For me being a Realtor® is about more than just selling a house. So plenty of times when I’m not around  the office I’m fight for you & our clients, to promote the rights, importance & benefits of  home ownership.

Earlier this week I traveled to Jeff City(again) to speak with your Representatives & Senators about the Missouri First-Time Home Buyer Initiative.  Here is the link with more info:


Please take a second and checkout the site. There are currently  Missouri House Bills (HB563/HB 1230) & Senate Bill 444. These bills have not been approved. On the site you contact your legislator and ask them to support the bill!

The plan would function as a dedicated, tax-free savings account program that would allow Missourians to:

  • Deposit up to $16,000 ($32,000 for couples) of after-tax dollars annually.
  • Parents and grandparents can set up an account for their children or grandchildren and even contribute money to the account.
  • Receive a state income tax deduction on the principal investment up to 50% of the maximum deposit.
  • All interest accrued in the account will be tax-free, expediting the time to purchase a first home.
  • Apply the savings and any earned interest toward the purchase or construction of a first home in Missouri, including closing costs, taxes and fees.
  • The plan applies to first time homebuyers and those re-entering the housing market, if they have not owned a home within three years.
