Wednesday, April 19, 2017 was a momentous day for Ahu Kocaballi of Bennion Deville Homes’ Palm Desert San Pablo office. She and her husband officially became United States citizens after moving to the country from Turkey, Ahu in 2007 and her husband several years prior. “The United States is our home already,” Ahu glows. “As a family, we want to keep contributing to our society to the fullest. It is a privilege to officially be a part of this magnificent country.” In all, the process took Ahu and her husband 14 years.
Moving from Istanbul, where she practiced Orthodontics, to the resort town of Palm Desert was a major shift for Ahu. “It was a huge transition for me to move from a big, cosmopolitan city to a small one and start a new life and career. Different culture, different people, different food, and a different field. However, I am very passionate about my real estate career and being a part of the Bennion Deville Homes family.”
“We are so proud and honored to share in this moment with Ahu,” says Managing Broker Tish Herwig. “Our office is a family, so when one of our family members accomplishes a huge feat, we want to celebrate. Becoming a U.S. citizen is a monumental occasion and we couldn’t be happier for Ahu and her family.”
