Life-Saving Assistance

In April of 2015 my husband and I were in a very hard place money-wise. We had a mortgage that we could no longer afford. We had been to numerous banks, including the ones we banked with. We had actually even had been laughed at by one bank officer, who claimed that we would never get a loan with our existing credit. We felt embarrassed, helpless, and overwhelmed, thinking that we would eventually lose our home. A co-worker who was very pleased by First Source told me that I should call and see what they could do for us.

I called and explained our situation to Jaime. She was so nice and extremely helpful. I held my breath, although I didn’t feel that anything would come out of this. When Jaime called to inform us that First Source could help us, I just about cried with relief! Not only did they give us the loan to pay off our existing mortgage, they also helped with things that were hurting our credit. With everything included, our new payment was over $150 less than what we were paying for just our mortgage!

We were on our way to getting our finances in order. In September Jaime called to give me great news – my credit score had gone up almost 100 points! I had been trying hard to get my credit straightened out so this was wonderful. I had told Jaime that it was funny she had called me because I wanted to give her a call. My back roof was in terrible shape and was leaking so bad I had a tarp on it. Jaime said she would see what she could do. I informed her that this home improvement loan would need to be in my name only as my husband and I were now getting a divorce. Not only was she sympathetic of the situation, she made me feel that she could yet again help me out.

Not long after Jaime and I hung up she called back to ask if I had bought a new car since our home equity loan, which I had. Jaime asked if I would like her to see if she could get me a better rate on my car payment. I told her yes and waited to hear back from her. Not only did Jaime call to say I was approved for the home improvement loan, but they also got me a better deal on my car payment saving me another $35 a month.

I cannot express how happy I am with First Source and the help of Jaime! Not only did they help get our payments down to a payment we could afford so we wouldn’t lose our home, they also helped me in a very stressful time in my life where things were not looking good for me. Knowing that I can fix my roof before winter took a huge load off my shoulders. Also, dropping my car payment even $35 dollars a month is a huge savings especially now that I am a single mom.

I would recommend First Source to anyone who will listen! They made a huge impact on my life. I no longer feel stressed about finances. With them I am on my way to building a better credit score, and renewed confidence in my money management. I cannot thank Jaime enough for taking the time to help me out. She is truly a wonderful person, who in my book is the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

Sincerely,
Melissa Finn
