Homeowner Help- December 2008

If you are a homeowner that needs help refinancing, any of our mortgage brokers would be happy to help you take advantage of today’s great rates. If you are underwater on your house or behind in your payments you need to speak to a counselor who can help you get back on tracks. Here are links to some local and federal resources:
