Fixing Ugly Isn’t Easy

Have you ever dealt with a collection company before?  Would you rather bang your head against the wall?

Recently, our team was called upon to help a client fix an “ugly” situation on their credit report to improve their terms with a home loan refinance.  The collection only totaled $250 but, it had a huge impact because everything else was paid perfectly.  You may wonder why this particular collection had a larger impact on this particular client’s strong credit report vs. someone who notoriously has late payments on their report.  That’s a great question…..however the answer is, “it’s just an ugly reality.”  Believe it or not, if you pay your debt in full but negotiate the wrong type of letter from the creditor, your result in regards to credit improvement could still be costly.  We coached our client on what to say and what documentation they would need with the exact verbiage required to improve their overall credit rating.

The result:  we were able to improve our client’s credit score by 107 points and reduce their monthly mortgage payment by over $100 per month for a one-time $250 payment and a patient phone call.

The long term savings in this situation saved the client thousands!  If you have an ugly credit situation, call us so we can help you! As always thank you for your continued support!  Without your ongoing referrals we would not be where we are today!

Networking Happy Hour

Our recent office move marks a new chapter in our professional journey and we thought of no better way to celebrate this exciting accomplishment than with a Networking Happy Hour in our new location — The Living Room in Chandler. The Living Room is located on Queen Creek and is right next to our new office building. It embodies the heart of this community in which we live and work. Its thriving and sophisticated energy provides the perfect backdrop for our monthly events and we are pleased to say our attendees agree! CosmoOur July Happy Hour saw our biggest turn out yet. Real Estate Agents, marketing professionals, home owners, and other local business owners came together to meet, eat, drink, laugh, and connect.FoodWhen we started our monthly Networking Happy Hour our goal was to connect with the community in which we do business. We envisioned industry professionals coming together to network and form potentially lucrative relationships, all while enjoying a much deserved cocktail. Over the last couple of years, these happy hours have morphed into something much bigger than we imagined.  Not only do our fellow industry professionals and partners come out to shake hands and catch up, but we are now welcoming business owners from myriad industries who hope to mingle and meet other like-minded professionals. What a great way to build new relationships, nurture existing partnerships and (ultimately) grow each other’s businesses!peepsAt Redstone we are privileged to be connected to such an amazing network of people who are passionate about our community and supporting locally-owned and operated businesses. As Chandler natives, we take personal pride in being able to have a positive impact on the growth and success of this burgeoning city.

If you missed July’s event, not to worry, our next Happy Hour is rapidly approaching. Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, August 25th. We look forward to connecting with you soon. In the mean time, find us on your favorite social media sites by searching Redstone Mortgage.
