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.

"Bill and Berna Petry are professional, friendly and subject matter experts. They are compassion to your needs and wants as a client. They are amazing communicators and willing at all times to explain in great detail anything their clients need clarification on. Through working with Bill and Berna we were able to buy two homes and manage a rental. Absolutely wonderful and will recommend them to anyone in the market for any housing needs at all."

  -Bobbie Tucker, Client

"Berna and Bill are the best real estate agents you could ask for. My family and I had been looking for a place to move since August of 2012 with no luck and couldn't get approved anywhere because of our financial situation. We begin working with Berna and Bill in early April and with their help on April 28th we moved into our new home (which we are loving). They gave us different options and explained everything to us in detail so we could fully grasp everything about trying to purchase a home. They even help you with your credit so if you are not qualified to buy a home, they will guide you along the way to get you qualified. Honestly I had gave up looking for home until Berna and Bill came along. I would recommend them to anyone and already have to a few of my friends. Not only are they good real estate agents, they are just good people in general which made this whole experience just great all around. Thanks Berna and Bill. 4/30/13"
