Thirty-nine-year-old Juan Salomon never thought of one day becoming a homeowner in the Napa Valley.
Like something out of a movie scene
The opportunity to apply for Our Town St. Helena’s Brenkle Court project came to him just like something out of a movie scene. A friend of Salomon who was working with the project architect reached out to him 24 hours before the application deadline and encouraged him to apply.
“It was never in my plans to become a homeowner,” Salomon said.
Salomon applied in 2016 for phase one and it wasn’t until 2019 that he got the news he had qualified. “Years went by, and I thought I wasn’t going to qualify because it had been so long. It wasn’t until I got called back a few years later that I started to think about the possibility of owning a home more seriously.”
