Thank you R.E.A.C.H-1 am a single black female.I had saved for years for my first home. R.E.A.C.H was able to hold a home for me while Ireceived HOME funding from Broward County of $18000. Iam so thankful to have my first home. While it is only a one bedroom, one bath home it is in a safe neighborhood with a pool and tennis court. Ihave never felt more secure in my life.
Patricia Tracey worked over a difficult period of time in my life. Ihad been sold on a negative amortization loan and, when the market fell, my loan amount continued to grow. Iwas in shock when I really understood the loan and saw what happened to my mortgage. My mortgage had been offered Lehman Brothers. It was predatory lending at its worst. Ms. Tracey worked with me for nearly 12 months and not only was Iable to save my home but Iwas able to get a large principal reduction of over
$300,000. I am a citizen but did not grow up in US. Idid not understand all of the financing. Now Iam much clearer and thank REACH and Ms. Tracey for all the help I received and the $300000 reduction
I contacted REACH about my housing matter. I needed assistance with a modification to avoid a foreclosure Dee was outstanding in helping to get the modification for me. I am 81 years old and this is such a relief for me and my husband to be able to stay in our home.
My Experience was very beneficial to me. I was on the verge of foreclosure and losing my home of 25 years. I went to the REACH workshop and then called for an appointment. I met with Mrs. Phillips who was very excellent. She knows her job and helped me so much. What a Blessing she was to me.
Thank you so much
I am grateful and delighted to share that I went to R.E.A.C.H. on February 11, 2016 for foreclosure prevention counseling with Mr. Bellfleur. I was 5 months behind on an adjustable rate mortgage when I met with the R.E.A.C.H. counselor. Like many homeowners I struggled to pay my mortgage due to a reduction in my income. R.E.A.C.H. assisted with budget counseling enabling me to reduce my expenses by 20% and developing a manageable budget moving forward. On April 1st, 2016 I received a congratulation letter from Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, stating I was approved for a trial payment plan. I was delighted and grateful for the help provided by R.E.A.C.H., which ultimately prevented my home from being foreclosed on. I want to give a big shout out to Mr. Bellfleur and the rest of the REACH team.
