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

“I learned so much from every speaker today.  Very informative!  I like how the speakers are setup to follow the home buying process.  Great job!”  – Jessica

“I feel far more confident in the home buying process now that I have been through the class.  The instructors answered all my questions and more.”  – Christian
