Congratulations to the most recently successful new homeowner in Ocean County, NJ

Congratulations to Natalie Davila, a single mom of two children who is the most recently successful new homeowner in Ocean County, New Jersey. Ms. Davila began the Ocean County First Time Homebuyer Program in 2019. Throughout that time, she worked with Mark Lamela, Ocean Inc. First Time Housing Counselor, who was the applicants point of contact assisting and guiding her throughout the entire first-time homebuying process.


Ms. Davila, a former Army Service Member applied for affordable housing through Ryan Homes in Forked River and was selected to purchase an affordable unit and the rest is history. She now cannot wait to start this new chapter in her family's lives.
