Local Drop Off Center For Those Devastated By Hurricane Harvey

Century 21 Mack Morris Iris Lurie Is #TexasStrong after receiving this from Sarah Lewis at Century 21 Paramount in League City Texas:  "We certainly appreciate it, Julie! We have no idea what we're going to do. We have several agents without homes and any pending transactions they had are now gone. This is devastating!"

In 2012 many of our community members were affected by Superstorm Sandy. Hurricane Harvey has brought back all those memories from 5 years ago. Our hearts know the pain of going through something as devastating as this disaster.

We decided to take a proactive measure and create a Drop Off Center at our Century 21 office in Marlboro. We are asking for either monetary donations (checks can be made out to Century 21 Mack Morris Iris Lurie which in turn will be combined and sent directly to the offices in need), or gift cards from American Express/ VISA, Walmart, Shoprite, Bed Bath and Beyond, Amazon, Home Depot /Lowes, Babies R Us, Petco, CVS/ Walgreens, and Target.

We will be collecting gift cards and donations starting Friday, September 1, 2017. Our Office Address is 47 Route 9 South, Morganville NJ 07751.

If you have any questions please call our office at 732-536-2228 and ask for either Julie or Mary Lou.

You think it's a done deal, right? Well, it's not 'for sure' until the closing takes place. Be aware that from the time you make loan application to the actual closing, lenders have become very cautious about the entire home mortgage loan process. Even when you have a good down payment and good credit, issues arising at the last minute can result in your loan being denied.

We have THREE important pieces of advice to help ensure you don't encounter last-minute problems right before the closing:
