Patience & Perseverance Leads to Home Ownership

When Paula Farve decided to move back home to Mississippi, she worried about where she would live and how she could afford a home with her credit score. After friends recommended Renaissance, she reached out for our help and was connected to one of our amazing home purchase advisors. “When Renaissance pulled my credit report, they saw past my credit score and history and offered classes and resources to help me repair my credit,” said Ms. Paula. 

“My favorite thing about Renaissance was the constant communication and help from my home purchase advisor. She always kept me on track and stayed patient with me when I had questions,” said Ms. Paula. After months of working with Renaissance to repair her credit, Ms. Paula was approved for a loan and finally able to purchase her dream home. “Owning a home changed my life. When I started my journey with Renaissance, my credit was horrible, and I could barely make ends-meet. I feel so good about myself now that I can leave for my kids,” said Ms. Paula

Since owning her own home, Ms. Paula is able to spend more time with her kids and grandchildren. She stated that her grandchildren always ask to come over and that she loves having a nice home and neighborhood where they can grow and play. There is even a turtle that her grandchildren have named Hero, who visits Ms. Paula every day at her new home.

“Renaissance changed my life. They really care about you and want to see you succeed,” said Ms. Paula.
