Finally a great Mexican place in World Golf Village! Cinco de Mayo, located at 124 Capulet Dr, Suite 109, offers very affordable lunch options, daily specials and a full bar. I was extremely impressed with the service and quality of food. I don’t know about you, but I normally judge a Mexican restaurant on their fajitas and queso. Cinco de Mayo gets five stars from me on both!
Potential homebuyers have until December 31, 2016 to take advantage of this incredible offer. There are only eight spots remaining! The initiation fee is valued up to $7,000 and can be used for any of several membership options.

Davidson Realty Agent and published Christian author Shelley Nemethy will host a community Bible Study called James: Mercy Triumphs starting Thursday October 6th at Davidson Realty’s World Golf Village headquarters. The Bible Study will be held every Thursday night from 6:30 to 8:30 pm for eight weeks.
James: Mercy Triumphs is written by Biblical teacher and renowned author Beth Moore. Beth is founder of Living Proof Ministries and the author of bestselling Bible studies and books for women. According to the James: Mercy Triumphs website, the course centers on, “joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer.” Shelley said every Beth Moore Bible Study she has ever done has been life changing.

According to Troy, the buying process is essentially the same from pre-approval through closing, but there are a few distinctions. His advice is to follow a few simple guidelines: determine your priorities early, utilize a Realtor’s expertise and thoroughly understand the contract.
