“If I can do it, You can do it too!” Nasha Rhone purchased her first home—a condominium in Bristol, Connecticut—at the young age of 22. Despite the challenges of being a single mother at the time, she was able to achieve her dream of homeownership by meeting the strict requirements of the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) first time buyers program. Rhone was proud to be the first person in her immediate family to own a home, and years later, homeownership grew into a passion as she quickly realized the empowerment, stability and equity that was afforded to her. She then discovered her urge to share the experience with others.
Realizing Homes, LLC is a full-service real estate business that is dedicated to helping everyone achieve the dream of homeownership. “Together we will make homeownership a reality” is their tag line.
“I truly believe in the path of homeownership for everyone,” explained Rhone. “I have dedicated most of my career to housing families, with previous experience working in residential, affordable housing, and even some large scale commercial, Class A&B buildings.”
Whether someone is buying, selling, investing or looking for rentals, Realizing Homes does it all. However, broker/owner Nasha Rhone’s passion is helping first-time home buyers. “Because homeownership had such a profound impact on me, I want to help others achieve the same. Helping people understand the importance of a real estate asset, sharing in the memory of purchasing your first home and most of all, helping families create generational wealth, is truly why I love what I do,” she explained.
While the rising interest rates across the country concerns many, she is quick to point out solutions. “CHFA is currently offering up to $50,000 to qualified buyers through a program called ‘The Time is Now’,” she shared. “It is a forgivable grant. A common misconception people have is that they have to be low-income to take advantage of these programs. However, that is not necessarily the case. Check to see if you are eligible.”
Rhone holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from Springfield College and has pursued her MBA with Post University. As the Broker and Owner of Realizing Homes, she holds credentials that allows her to practice as a Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource - SFR®, Certified Manager of Community Associations-CMCA and Accredited Buyers Representative - ABR®.
She is a member of the Greater Hartford Realtors Association (GHRA), the CT Real Estate Investment Association (CTREIA), and the National Realtors Association (NAR) meeting the ethical standards and requirements to serve as a member.
Opening her own brokerage allows her to do what she loves and does best: service her clients!
“I serve ALL communities and go where I’m needed in Connecticut,” she said.
Rhone works hard every day to help families just like hers realize their dreams, one home at a time!
