Success Stories


“A comprehensive review of everything you need to know as you embark on the journey to homeownership.  I now feel empowered and confident to start this process.  Most importantly, I think, I now know who to call, what questions to ask, and how to get all the information I would need to move forward with buying a house.  This class put all of the moving pieces of the home buying process in one convenient package.  I would recommend to anyone!”  – Valerie

“Before the class, the whole process seemed very murky and intimidating.  Now I have a much better idea of how it works with lenders, agents, title and insurance.  I feel more informed and more empowered as a buyer.”  – Rhonda

"Valerie & Beth with Lewis and Clark county present on water quality, air quality, superfund sites etc.  I followed up with a gal who took class last year,  She ended up finding out she was exposed to toxic levels of metals after a miscarriage in a rental that was unsafe.  She ended up moving and now has a beautiful baby girl named Amelie.  This was a huge health concern for their family .  Valerie took our class several years ago and has been so instrumental in getting info out there. Huge thanks to Valerie and Beth. " 

"Lance Holmes DNVGL- I saved over $100 using the energy audit- thank you!  I know many more of our applicants will benefit from this also! "

"Jeanne Massey -the restoration piece is so valuable, and it's a bonus that you used to be an insurance agent."
