Here's what she says about the recent home purchase: "What’s more exciting then a customer purchasing a new home? Answer: buying a home that has been in your family for generations! Celeste and Leslie recently purchased the home of Celeste‘s grandmother. The house was originally built by Celeste’s great-great-grandfather and has been in the family ever since.
