Foreclosure

"We've counseled more than 50,000 homeowners and we've learned that the earlier a homeowner acknowledges their financial difficulties and calls us, the more options we have in helping that homeowner. By the time a homeowner actually has been served a foreclosure notice, there is sometimes little we can do. "

~ Walt Fricke
