Home Makeover Contest Winner Announced

On July 8, 2015 Coldwell Banker Home Source and its Realtors, contest partners, CBS2 News and media partners Y102, 106.5 The Fox, Talk 960 and Kat Country, all arrived at the home of their 2015 Home Makeover Contest winner – Gayle Downer. With cameras rolling and balloons in hand, the Coldwell Banker Home Source team knocked on her door and to Gayle’s surprise, that she had been selected as the Home Makeover Contest winner. Gayle and her family are residents of Hesperia, Ca. Both she and her husband have medical issues and have been unable to keep up on repairs and maintenance of their home so they entered Coldwell Banker Home Source’s Home Makeover Contest the first week. To her surprise she was chosen as this year’s winner, Gayle stated, “This is absolutely wonderful! I can’t believe it.” When asked to sum up her feelings in one word she said “I’m elated!!” The actual home makeover is only made possible through the donations from Coldwell Banker Home Source and local business partners who join together to offer their services in order to make the dream home a reality. Combined, this year’s partners will provide nearly $40,000 worth of services and products to update Gayle’s home from Silver partners; ServPro, Carpet Club, Valley Tree Care & Tri City Air and Bronze partners; Athena Jean Salon, Steeno Design Studio, Country Oak & Stoves, Mark & Nellie’s Nursery, Midway Home Solutions, Dunn-Edwards Paints, and HD Art N Frame. Gold level partners DG’s Lawncare, Patio Shack, Vern’s Glass, Angel Rock & Sand and Raines Electric are all slated to offer $5,000 each worth of valuable products. Gayle also received a $200 gift card from Louisiana Cajun Seafood House in Hesperia and an auto detail from DreamCars Auto Repair. Gold sponsor, Raines Electric, was on hand to deliver the good news to Gayle. ​“We are proud to have the opportunity for the second year to give back to the high desert community and joining everyone involved on making this a great home makeover,” said Josh Weber owner of Raines Electric. This year marks the fourth annual Coldwell Banker Home Source Home Makeover Giveaway Contest. “No matter whom you are or where you live, your home is important and offers a place of rest and refuge,” stated Coldwell Banker Home Source President, Chris Lamoreaux. “We do this every year in an effort to give back to the community and we are so excited to offer this dream home makeover to Gayle. We hope that it serves to make a positive difference in her life and in her family’s life, both now and in the future.” Watch the Daily Press for the before and after photos and description of the home makeover progress.
