Veterans Have Given Us More Than Freedom

Who knows how we’d live if it weren’t for our veterans? They serve and fight so we can live freely.

But, did you know that veterans are the reason why so many of us live where and how we live?

They’re literally the reason why so many people live in “suburbs”. While mass transit made it possible, veterans played a large part in suburbs developing.

Right after World War II, the suburb of Levittown (in Long Island, New York) was built to offer veterans an affordable home.

While it wasn’t the first suburb, it’s seen as a tipping point that led to suburbs becoming more and more common.

So, thank you to all of our veterans today, and every day. It’s because of you that we can live freely — where and how we choose to live — in more ways than we even think about.

If you know a veteran who is thinking of buying a home, let him or her know we’d be happy to be of service. We’ll make sure they know about the real estate benefits they’re entitled to for having served our country.
