An Atlanta native, LaQundra was raised in the Pittsburgh community and is proud to become the first person in her family to buy a home. When LaQundra is not working for Ram Partners LLC., she enjoys time with her two daughters, Yasmine (15 years old) and Brooke (9 years old). Yasmine dreams of owning a salon one day, and Brooke wants to become a classroom teacher/dance instructor. LaQundra and her family share their gratitude for the house sponsors helping make her first home affordable. Like all Atlanta Habitat homebuyers – LaQundra will purchase her house with a no-interest loan. Homebuyers make a down payment of $800, pay a monthly mortgage, complete 250 sweat-equity hours, attend 12 homeowner-education classes, and participate in five financial coaching sessions. Monthly mortgage payments are around $650 and include escrow for taxes, insurance, sanitation fees, a termite bond, and a maintenance savings fund.
