Mulan Jr.
This action-packed musical was adapted for the stage from the popular 1998 animated Disney film, Mulan, which was itself based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan. When the invasion of the Huns threatens Mulan’s father, the Emperor, Mulan disguises herself as a boy and prepares for battle to save him. She later must choose between divulging her true identity or saving China with her plan. Through song and a modern sensibility, the production celebrates ancient Chinese culture, honor and the fighting spirit.

Buy Or Rent Concept

 

MYTH 1: Mortgage payments are unaffordable.

The tax savings on mortgage interest alone often makes up for most of the difference between a rent payment and a mortgage payment.


 

MYTH 2: Buying a home is too complicated.
Buying a home can be very complicated, but that’s why I’m here to help. My job is to guide buyers through the entire process from start to finish.

MYTH 3: Buying a new home requires a substantial down payment.

There are actually quite a few flexible down payment options available. Many first-time buyers take advantage of financing options that only require a 5 percent down payment, and some require even less.

Here is what one of our newest Community Sales Manager had to say about their experiences thus far with McGuinn Hybrid Homes!

I got the amazing opportunity to worZachk with the McGuinn Hybrid Homes team and Company starting in May 2016. I was currently working a full time job and real estate in my spare time. Wade sent me an email asking if I’d be interesting in the opportunity. I was praying and keeping my options open and for me God brought me Wade McGuinn. Not only did it bring me Wade, but I am a part of a team that is a team with family values. We work hard and are rewarded well for our efforts. I have a high moral code and I am proud and happy to be a part of a company that carries the same integrity and moral code that I do. It’s been a fun and exciting year so far and the best part is the year isn’t over yet. With the momentum that we currently have I’m very excited about what the future holds, 5 sales and closings in my first 3 months! I had awesome support from Nick and Tiffanie in getting started. I am blessed because I now have a position that not only will allow me to exceed my goals, but I can also continue to support my Mother whom I love dearly. With that being said, if anyone is looking for a challenging, fast pace, and rewarding company to work for and work with, then I was say that McGuinn is a good fit for anyone.

 

McGuinn Hybrid Homes pride ourselves on being an organization that will train new employees to reach new heights in their spiritual, professional, and personal lives. The goal for any person that comes to work here is to gain a new skill set that will help you be successful no matter where you career may take you.

Zack Schwartz has joined the McGuinn Homes Family!

Categories: Buying a New Home, Home Buying | Posted: May 16, 2016

Hello, my name is Zachary Schwartz, but most people call me Zach. I was born in Goshen, IN and lived up there till the age 11 where my family moved down to South Carolina. I have three younger sisters and one older brother. Growing up was always eventful having such a big family. We definitely had to learn how to share and to get along. It taught me a lot of valuable lessons now that I’m in my adult life. With that said though being so close in age, we were able to experience a lot of things at the same time, which help create so many great memories and good times.

I’ve lived and have grown up in the Columbia area since middle school. I went Dutch Fork Middle School, Dutch Fork High School, and Midlands Tech. Throughout high school and college I worked for a chain grocery store where I started out as a bagger and worked my way up to being a bookkeeper and finally a supervisor. From there I got a job with a local bank as a Bank Teller. After five and half years of working there, I got the opportunity to work at a national cable company. I started in Customer Service and worked my way to being a Sales Operations Coordinator. My interest peaked for Real Estate about 2 years ago and I haven’t looked back sense. I’ve always wanted to work for myself, so while working at the cable company, I did real estate part-time. I had a desire to do it full-time and was offered a unique opportunity with McGuinn! I see this as an amazing opportunity to really work to my potential. I’m a big people person so this is a really good fit for me.

I do have a lot of hobbies and interests. I would say my number one interest is music. I come from a musical family and background and it is still my heart’s desire to learn to play the guitar. I am also pretty big into fitness. I love to go to the gym and knock out a great work out and have that satisfied feeling of muscles twitching and just feeling that tiredness of doing something worthwhile towards being healthy.

There are so many great things that I would like so meeting new people comes with ease I have never met a stranger! I love hearing people’s life stories and what paths they are on or where they have been. It’s the small things in life that build my passions up. I have big dreams and big ambitions. I’m not afraid of work and I am willing of working hard and smart now, so that later down the road I won’t have to and I’ll be able to enjoy my life with my family and friends.

I’m so excited about the new opportunities in front of me and look forward to what happens next to continue on in the next chapter of my life.
