“We closed yesterday on our first home. None of this would have been possible if our HomeOwnership Specialist, wasn’t there to guide us through the process. She really was our guardian angel through this whole ordeal. We cannot thank her enough for all her hard work, from banks to lenders, lawyers, etc., I would highly recommend the Housing Partnership for anyone looking to purchase their first home. A+”
