Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the leading provider of real estate services in Northern California, announced today that it represented the sale and purchase of a plot of land in Hollister, on which Homes for Our Troops will build a new house for injured Army Sergeant Brian Jergens.

A ground-breaking ceremony will be held Saturday, April 27 at 10:00 a.m. at 254 Rosebud Avenue in Hollister.  Construction will soon follow and the home will be specially-adapted to Sgt. Jergens’ needs.

Sgt. Jergens was on his first deployment when he lost both of his legs below the knee, suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, hearing loss, internal organ damage, a broken neck and damage to his right elbow in an IED blast in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan on August 7, 2011.

“There are some real estate transactions that stand out among the rest and this was one,” said Nancy Robinson, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Gilroy office.  “We knew how important it was for this sale to go as smoothly as possible and that it was the first step in getting Sgt. Jergens into a safe and comfortable home.  We are proud to be part of this project and look forward to seeing him move in once it is complete.”
