Perry Homes is so proud to be partnering for the first time with Building Homes for Heroes to give back to this brave, selfless hero who sacrificed greatly for our country.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) August 07, 2020
Perry Homes, Building Homes for Heroes, and Hillwood Communities today announced their first-ever partnership to construct a specialized home in Wolf Ranch, a master-planned development by Hillwood Communities, for an Army veteran who was severely injured while serving overseas. Army Sgt. Kristopher Biggs lost his left leg and suffered a traumatic brain injury during an attack in Iraq in 2007, and will receive one of 40 mortgage-free homes donated to injured soldiers this year through the Building Homes for Heroes organization. Sgt. Biggs was awarded the Purple Heart, among many other prestigious honors, for his dedication and service.
Located in Georgetown along the banks of the San Gabriel River and less than a mile from the intersection of Hwy 29 and I-35, the Wolf Ranch community offers beautiful first-class amenities. Wolf Ranch residents have exclusive access to a state-of-the-art amenity center, a resort-style infinity edge pool, pocket green spaces & parks, miles of scenic hiking trails, a playground, a large indoor lounge and kitchen area, an impressive outdoor patio and grilling area, and an onsite lifestyle program with scheduled activities for its residents year-round.
“Perry Homes is so proud to be partnering for the first time with Building Homes for Heroes to give back to this brave, selfless hero who sacrificed greatly for our country,” said Chris Little, Perry Homes City President, Austin/San Antonio. “Perry Homes has long supported veterans in need through the construction of beautifully-designed homes, modified to enable these former servicemen and women to thrive on their own. To date we’ve built and donated eleven homes to well-deserving military families through other organizations who also provide homes for veterans. We are honored to offer Sgt. Biggs with a new home that will be carefully designed and specifically crafted for his individual needs.”
Perry Homes will be working closely with Building Homes for Heroes to design a handicap-accessible 1,800 sq. ft. home featuring three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a home office, and an extended covered patio. Some adaptations include wider hallways, custom kitchen cabinetry, a modified primary bathroom shower, and other safety features designed specifically for Sgt. Biggs.
“Having a brand-new home fitted to my specific needs is a dream come true, and I could not be more appreciative of the great work Perry Homes and Building Homes for Heroes are doing for wounded veterans in this country,” said Sgt. Biggs. “They’re not just building new homes for veterans – they are building futures. I’m grateful beyond words for the opportunity to rebuild my life and my future after losing my leg, and this new home will allow me to do that as independently as possible. This kind of compassion touches your soul, and it motivates you to keep moving forward beyond every obstacle.”
The local Perry Homes construction management team holds a personal stake in building this new home for Sgt. Biggs. Project Manager Artie Ellis, an Army veteran himself, will be the lead supervisor on the construction of the home and will oversee every special modification needed for Sgt. Biggs. The official groundbreaking of the new home is slated for August, with a final completion date expected later this year.
“I have a deep sense of pride for this country. While in the Army, I discovered my passion for effective leadership in high-pressure situations,” said Ellis. “My time with Perry Homes has provided me the opportunity to expand my leadership skills to support my team, allowing us to accomplish something that we can all be proud of each day. Being able to build this home for a fellow soldier gives me a unique opportunity to put my patriotism into action yet again and create a place where Sgt. Biggs and his family can make great memories for years to come.”
Hillwood Communities has a strong history and commitment to the veteran community,” said Duke Kerrigan, Hillwood Communities Austin General Manager. “Since 2017, Hillwood Communities has worked with Building Homes for Heroes to deliver three homes for selected veterans in several of our master-planned communities throughout the State of Texas. We are proud to participate in this opportunity and will contribute by donating the homesite so that the benefits are passed along to Sgt. Biggs.”
Another large contributor to this new home project is American radio and television personality Bobby Bones, who has also partnered with Building Homes for Heroes to provide Sgt. Biggs with this specially modified 1800S Perry Homes design. The nationally syndicated Bobby Bones Show has already raised more than $110,000 through the show’s #PIMPINJOY movement, dedicated to helping those in need. Funds raised via the movement’s merchandise page, The Shop Forward, will be donated to help adapt and outfit the home for Sgt. Biggs.

Banyan Tree Resorts Opens Its Third Property in Mexico Hacienda…
Mexico is the gateway to luxury tourism in the American continent, so of course we are delighted to be part of this opportunity, and operate a property like Hacienda Xcanatun,” said Peter Hechler, SAVP, Head-Regional Operations MENA (Middle East, Europe, North Africa & Americas).
MERIDA, Mexico (PRWEB) September 18, 2020
The prestigious Asian luxury hospitality group Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts announces the launch of its third property in Mexico: Hacienda Xcanatun, which will be operated by its upscale brand Angsana. Located just 15 minutes from the center of Merida, 10 minutes from the archaeological zone of Dzibilchaltún, and 20 minutes from the beaches of Puerto Progreso, the hacienda promises to be a new historic, chic oasis in the region as of July 1.
The structure, renovation, and setting of Hacienda Xcanatun are presented as a contemporary reimagining of the legendary Yucatan henequenera haciendas (large agricultural haciendas of the 18th century, henequen being a type of agave plant). This oasis on the periphery of Merida, represents a new commitment from the renowned hotel group to highlight and promote this destination within its global portfolio, as it is a living testimony to the rich historical heritage and culture of Mexico.
“Mexico is the gateway to luxury tourism in the American continent, so of course we are delighted to be part of this opportunity, and operate a property like Hacienda Xcanatun,” said Peter Hechler, SAVP, Head-Regional Operations MENA (Middle East, Europe, North Africa & Americas). “This will be our first property managed by Angsana in the country, and we are proud to bring the brand to this terrestrial paradise in the midst of the Yucatan Peninsula.”
Now, under the seal of quality and global standards of Angsana, the hacienda has evolved into a more contemporary space, with the aim of being the first local resort, living and promoting the philosophy of carefree luxury, and enjoying the best moments, without sacrificing tradition and proximity to the precious historic sites of the Yucatan Peninsula.
The property design is historically-chic, inspired by Yucatan culture. The ruins of the original structure, destroyed by hurricane Gilberto in 1988, and reopened in 2000, have been preserved. Pre-Hispanic and modern elements are incorporated throughout the new design and renovation.
The Hacienda Xcanatun reflects the harmonic authenticity of a historic legacy, showcasing contemporary art, and comfortable modernity. The feeling of tranquility is apparent throughout the Hacienda. The updated experience includes 18 renovated suites designed by renowned Mexican architectural firm Estudio 240; Casa de Piedra restaurant with the esteemed chef Paloma Ponce at the helm; and the calming Spa by Angsana, which preserves ancient Asiatic traditions from the Banyan Tree Academy.
The spa draws upon traditional eastern traditions such as aromatherapy, using natural ingredients and world-renowned Asian techniques. The flagship restaurant offers cuisine dating back to the origins of the region, with local ingredients as the cornerstone of a memorable culinary experience, inspired by French techniques combined with a distinctively Mexican touch. From cooking classes to gastronomic activities and pairings, everything is tailored to provide guests and clients with a greater connection to the history and gastronomic identity of the region.
As a part of the philosophy of Angsana Hotels & Resorts, this new property seeks to be a part of the life and harmony of the local community, functioning under firm principles of sustainability and social responsibility. The Hacienda Xcanatun is a part of the Comisaria Meridana de Xcanatun and will support several projects dedicated to inclusion and community collaboration. The property will preserve the natural flora and fauna with a garden for iguanas, coatimundis, herons and a diverse array of birds.
Angsana Hotels & Resorts operates 19 hotels and resorts in 10 different countries. The organization brings adventure to travelers, whatever their age or reason for visiting, intertwining chic venues with a vibrant atmosphere full of culture, astonishing even the most discerning of guests.
Banyan Tree Group will open the doors of the renovated property on July 1, in accordance with the regulations of the federal and state governments and through the use of the “Safe Sanctuary” standards — derived from an international certification in safety and wellbeing protocols developed by the Belgian company Bureau Veritas. Banyan Tree Group and Angsana Hotels & Resorts are dedicated entirely to ensuring the health and wellbeing of all guests who visit their spaces.

We know what the court needs, and what the attorney needs and we streamline the process by providing free ancillary services.
Past News Releases
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 18, 2020
Probate real estate sales are complex transactions that require a great deal of care, diligence and management. Until recently, finding a full-service real estate company qualified to handle both commercial and residential L.A. probate sales was a difficult prospect.
The company was founded by Oron Maher, a leading real estate broker and attorney who is also the founder of Maher Commercial Realty. In July 2020, he launched Maher Probate Realty to provide seamless coordination between probate courts, personal representatives, attorneys, executors, and property buyers.
As a member of the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s Trusts and Estate Section, and a three-time Chair of its Real Estate Section, and a former Association Chair, Maher understands the legal perspective of probate sale transactions. While he does not provide legal advice in these situations, his knowledge of the rules, terminology, timelines and documentation enable his company to handle probate sales with great efficiency.
“We know what the court needs, and what the attorney needs,” explains Maher. “We streamline the process by providing free ancillary services. We provide online document retrieval, courier services, title assistance and transaction management. We make court appearances to present offers, and we keep all authorized parties informed of the sale progress.”
Both commercial and residential probate sales receive team support and aggressive marketing. After evaluating the property, Maher Probate Realty identifies the most likely buyers and commences a proprietary 12-point marketing plan. They leverage a global network of clients, investors, developers and business owners to attract the highest and best offers.
“We leave no stone unturned in our efforts,” says Maher. “We have created a system to ensure that all beneficiaries are happy because they receive the highest possible price, all attorneys are happy because they are receiving transparent service and all personal representatives are happy because we are streamlining the process. This is the first brokerage in Los Angeles of it’s kind.”
Maher Probate Realty’s services are ideal for Personal Representatives, Attorneys and Executors. A free probate sale consultation may be arranged by calling 310-464-1453.
Maher Probate Realty is a Beverly Hills based real estate company founded by Oron Maher, a licensed real estate broker of 21 years with over $500 million in real estate sales.
