Local realtor Curbow on HGTV

It’s not every day a Colorado Springs real estate company can land a spot on a national cable network, but Mercie Curbow, managing broker for Century 21 Curbow Realty knows it can be done.

At 7 p.m.Thursday, March 5 at Curbow Realty broker Jeff Robinson and his client, Marcus Garcia, a Naval Reserve sailor home from active duty in Iraq will be featured on HGTV’s “House Hunters” show.

The 30-minute segment is set to run again later the same day and as a re-run in coming weeks.

Curbow said she learned of the opportunity through a national Century 21 announcement inviting brokers throughout the country to participate in multiple HGTV features.

Robinson was able to help Garcia find a new single family home in Claremont Ranch.

“Prior to deployment, he’d been living with his folks, but decided it was time to move out when he returned,” Curbow said, adding that the buyer used VA financing to obtain his mortgage loan.

“It’s really easy for the military to get financing through VA,” she said. “With a score of 620 or above, you can often qualify with nothing down – especially if they’ve kept current on payments and have a strong credit score.”
