The Nichols Family

Brad Nichols was on his fourth tour of active duty in Afghanistan when he was wounded. On his return to the States, Brad and his wife Heather talked about a lifelong dream: to own their own home. They wanted an oasis for their four children, ages 11 to 17. At the time, they were renting in Lakewood Ranch and owning their own home seemed to be a reach – then they met Tammy Pogar of Wagner Realty. "Meeting Tammy was life changing for us," notes Heather, adding "Tammy had the real estate knowledge and expertise we were looking for and we immediately "clicked".

Wagner Realty's is a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, which developed the U.S. Military on the Move® (MOM) program.  The MOM Program offers cash rewards, closing cost credits and other real estate related services for active duty, retired (20 years of service) military or wounded warriors, when they buy or sell a home.  "The Military On The Move Program is very special to me, since both my son and my little brother are in the military" notes Tammy adding "being a military mom and sister makes me especially appreciative of our veterans and the sacrifices they make serving our country."

"Wagner Realty has more than 30 agents who have completed the MOM Program's comprehensive training, designed to help them better serve the specific needs of those who serve our country," notes Carla Ross, Wagner Realty's Relocation Director. "Our agents understand the process and hurdles military members face during transition and know how to help smooth the process."

"Brad and Heather never thought they'd be able to own their own home," said Tammy, "but with a wonderful combination of our U.S. Military on the Move® program, supportive sellers and a wonderful selling agent, we were able to make the Nichols family's dream of home ownership come true. The MOM program gave them cash back at closing to help them afford essentials, and the sellers paid their first year's HOA fees. The other agent and I helped with closing costs." The Nichols family is now happily settled into their Palmetto home.

If you or someone you know is interested in the U.S. Military on the Move Program, please contact Carla Ross, Wagner Realty Relocation Director. Carla can be reached by calling 941.727.2800 or by email at relo@wagnerrealty.com.



Moving to a New Home Purge Before You Pack

Our real estate agents at Wagner Realty stand by you every step of the way during your home buying journey. That includes move-in day!

Buying a home is an exciting time, but there's one part that gives people pause: Hauling their "stuff" to their brand new home.

With the popularity of things like the "KonMari Method" helping people to declutter their lives, more people are taking a close look at the things they own. Moving is an excellent opportunity for you to get rid of things you no longer need. That's much easier than finding new places to put them!

It's often a relief to start over in a new home. But how can you do it the right way?

Here's how to purge before you pack – and cut out stress for your moving day.

Make Moving with Your Pet Pawsitive

6 Tips for Moving with Your Pet
Did you know that February 20th is National Love Your Pet Day? Our real estate agents know just how much people love their pets, and offer six simple ways to make your move low-stress for your furry friends (and you!). After all, pets are family so it's important to make sure to help them adjust and stay safe during a move.  

  1. Update Your Pet's ID.
    Make sure your pets are wearing proper collars and ID tags with your name, address and current cell phone number before you move.  Consider getting your cat or dog microchipped, as collars and tags can fall off and get lost. If your pet already has a chip, it's vital to update your contact information in the event that they do get lost.
