Meet Samantha and Owen – two Pennsylvania natives who made their way to the Mountain State roughly eight years ago. Owen came to Elkins in 2012 to study at Davis and Elkins College, and Samantha followed suit in 2015 to be a member of an AmeriCorps program. Now, Owen is employed at VanNostrand Architects based in Buckhannon and Samantha works at LMC & Associates in Elkins. After living in downtown Elkins for five years, the pair decided it was time to purchase their first home together and turned to the HomeOwnership Center for some homebuying education and guidance.
We chatted with Samantha and Owen to find how out the house hunting process was and how the HomeOwnership Center played a role in finding their Randolph County home.
