Our Programs are designed for those with less than perfect credit.  For more than 15 years we have been assisting those with less than perfect credit to find housing.  We have three preferred lenders in the local area who assist our clients in realigning their credit to meet the mortgage industry requirements.  How?  By evaluating each individual and circumstance and creating a plan to get you from where you are now – to home ownership.  The average time to realign the credit and qualify is 0-6 months.

""Started with a simple phone call in which I asked could we possibly purchase instead of renting, ANSWER WAS YES! Even though we were in a Chapter 13 BK, after I answered some prelim questions, the answer was YES! I always thought it could be a chance, but David and Berna always said YES! Berna has had an enormous amount of experience with BK's etc, and she never doubted once if I could be approved. This being my first time going through the home buying experience, I did do my homework to try and know as much as possible. But David answered and thoroughly explained every uncertainty I had. I know I'll be using their services in the near future. I truly must say it was a pleasure to have use Samson my first time purchasing!""

"Bill and Berna made our dream of home ownership come true! They worked hard to find us a lender, and they worked hard to make things move forward for us. We are thankful to have our first home and were very happy with their services."

"Working with Bill and Berna Petry was a pleasure. When I first contacted the Petry Team I wasn't sure whether or not my credit scores were good enough to purchase a home right away so I was inquiring about their other programs that they offer but, once Berna and I spoke, she gathered my information, talked it over with her loan officer and find out that I could buy a home now. The following weekend I met with Bill to look at a couple of properties and found the home I liked. We put the offer on the home and within 45 days I was moving into my new home. I would recommend this Team to anyone who is looking to purchase a home and need assistance from people that are very trustworthy and efficient. They are with you every step of the way and will assist with the loan process as if it were them that are purchasing the home. When my children are ready to purchase their first homes I will be sure to call The Petry Team! S.Grigsby"

"If you are seeking hardworking and competent realtors to buy, sell or rent a home - look no further! I have been a real estate investor for 7 years and Bill and Berna (The Petry Team) have been my only realtors the entire time. I have worked with other realtors but none of them come remotely close to the amount of knowledge, professionalism and competency displayed by the Petry Team. Collectively, they are a winning team that will find you what you want regardless of the demands. Over the past 7 years, I have successfully bought and rented many homes with their assistance and they have never disappointed. They are meticulous, hardworking and extremely responsive to your individual needs and always willing to go the extra mile. Without a doubt, if you have a real estate need the Petry Team comes highly recommend - they will not disappoint!"
