No, this is not a gossip column about what your neighbor is doing. This is about why local companies matter to a community and why they matter to you. Home Advantage Realty is proud to be a locally owned real estate company that started in Columbia more than 25 years ago.
When planning an evening out, you know that you have a choice between a locally owned restaurant serving local, fresh food or a franchise that seems to pop up at every major intersection.
When buying or selling a home in the Columbia area, you have the option to work with an all-local, independent business with deep roots in our community. Why does this matter?
Local matters because small, homegrown businesses create two out of every three new jobs. Local matters because local knowledge is important when making decisions that will affect your family for years to come. Local matters because our agents support numerous community-based organizations, serve on the school board, serve as president of the PTO and sit on the pew beside you in church. Local matters because when you shop locally and use local businesses, all your dollars stay right here in the Columbia area.
