Home Buyer of the Month - January, 2014
Wilson & Jamie Green were renting an apartment in Lowell for 12 years and felt it was time to own. Their two children needed their own rooms and Jamie wanted to live in a family oriented neighborhood.
They completed our home buyer training program and worked with Ed Alcantara, our home buyer counselor. Ed helped them to analyze their family budget, credit history, loan options and savings needs. They followed Ed’s suggestions and were determined to buy a home.
According to Wilson “From the things I remember about the class, the most important was the need to build the right team by selecting the best professionals and that is what I did. Everything that was presented was right on.”
The Greens have just been featured in Massachusetts Housing Partnership’s new video announcing the ONE Mortgage product which is replacing the Soft Second Mortgage.
Donna Koulas of Citizens Bank provided mortgage financing. When asked about working with Donna Koulas, Jamie commented “What can I say? She was excellent.” Donna concurs that it was a pleasure working with the Greens. They were prepared with all their financial documentation and were perfect candidates for a Mass Housing Partnership loan.
Jamie says “It feels great to pull into my driveway. I still have to pinch myself.” Their children have plenty of friends in their new neighborhood. They have rounded out their new home with the addition of a new dog, Saffy.
Congratulations Jamie and Wilson.
