Vintage Oaks is Finally Home for the Reads

Services for Real Estate Pros with SouthStar Communities

The majestic oak trees swayed in the breeze as the Air Force honor guard marched up the driveway of a brand new, custom-built home at Vintage Oaks at the Vineyard. A local Vietnam veteran cyle group proudly stood at the front of the crowd, holding their flags high in respect. Senior Airman Colton Read and his wife, Jessica, anxiously awaited the ceremonious crossing of the threshold into their new home.

"One of your neighbors here at Vintage Oaks said it best," said Bluegreen Communities CEO, Dan Koscher. "Home is where the hero is. And we're glad to welcome you home today, Colton and Jessica."

It was just last Fall when representatives from Operation FINALLY HOME, Bluegreen Communities and Jimmy Jacobs Custom Homes gathered to surprise the Reads with the news that they would be receiving a mortgage-free home and land. "Back then, it was a plot of land in a gorgeous community in the Texas Hill Country," Koscher said. "Now, it's the place that will house your new family for years to come."

Bluegreen Communities is proud to continue its partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME in making dreams come true for deserving, wounded soldiers and their families. For more information about Bluegreen Communities and Operation FINALLY HOME, visit
