While the list of many accolades that Raven Peggins can claim includes honors graduate, Blazers cheerleader, hip-hop dance teacher and nurse, it is move-up homebuyer and two-time Step Up customer that brought AHFA staff to her door in December.
The 26-year-old family nurse practitioner decided to sell her townhouse in Helena and purchase a house in her hometown of McCalla to make the commute to her job at UAB's Kirklin Clinic more convenient.
Peggins used AHFA's Step Up program with her first home purchase in 2016 on the advice of her lender Dolan Williams with First Bank in Birmingham. She was happy to use Step Up again when he recommended it for her new home purchase.
