Bingham Family to Present Thunder Game Ball December 31

Bingham Family to Present Thunder Game Ball December 31

Oklahoma City Thunder LogoAs a proud partner of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Home Creations has the opportunity to do game ball presentations before Thunder home games. We are excited to have the opportunity to select our first home owners from one of our Tulsa communities!

We sat down with Araba and Jermaine Bingham who are building their home in our Southridge at Lantern Hill community in Bixby to get the story behind their home buying journey.

“Three years ago, Home Creations happened to go into the Glen Eagles area during the Parade of Homes and when I went inside, I met Elizabeth,” Araba said of our New Home Consultant, Elizabeth Sellers.

“But at that particular time, it was a very difficult time in my life and to have somebody who actually took interest in me instead of just trying to sell me a house meant so much,” Araba said as both she and Elizabeth became emotional, recalling their first encounter. “I knew then that if I ever was to buy a home, I would buy it through Home Creations and I would buy it through Elizabeth.”

Three years after their first encounter, an unlikely Facebook friend request brought Araba and Elizabeth back together. And when the Bingham’s were ready to build their home, they came to Elizabeth.

“This is our second home,” said Jermaine. “The first home we bought was actually in Illinois when we first got married 12 years ago.”

The Bingham’s had been renting a home before making the decision to become homeowners once again. And when it came to location, there was only one place the Bingham’s wanted to call “home.”

“When we made the decision to build a home, we knew we wanted to build here in Bixby,” Araba said. “We actually love Bixby. I don’t think I’d ever move anywhere else.”

It was Lantern Hill’s location and atmosphere that made building their home in our Bixby community the right choice for them.

“It has a real country feel. I think that’s what sold us in the first place when we came out here,” Araba said. “We saw different communities but Bixby kind of has this down-home feeling to it. We’re away from everything, but we still feel like we’re close to everything we need.”

“The mall is 4 or 5 miles away, we have playgrounds, the highway is right there and it’s very close to work,” Jermaine added.
