Charlie Duffield, Birmingham

After moving to Birmingham with her young daughter Evalynn, Charlie Duffield finished classes at Auburn University and completed the paralegal certificate program one week before giving birth to Evalynn's little sister, Scarlett. After securing a job as a paralegal, the next phase of Duffield’s journey introduced her to AHFA and the Step Up program.

While she knew what she was looking for in a home, her mortgage lender, Ben Crew with InterLinc Mortgage Services in Birmingham, was the one who told Duffield about the Step Up program and how it could make her homeownership dream a reality. 

Today the Duffield "Three Musketeers," as Duffield refers to herself and the girls, are building a life in a three-bedroom home, located in a quiet and convenient cul-de-sac.
