Real estate program successful
Amy Buckley, Countryside Realty, Batesville, broker-owner, has announced the success of its 2012 stimulus package for buyers. By the end of December, the agents and their company completed over 21 real estate transactions that generated over $9,500 of Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce gift certificates being spent at local businesses.
After closing, the agents purchased the gift certificates from the chamber and gave them to their buyers to use at several local businesses for any home remodeling projects, appliances or dinners out.
