Divorce Housing Pro
Helping divorcing homeowners make informed decisions on home equity solutions.

So, You’re Getting Divorced.

And you have a house or houses that you need to disposition. What next?

Well, what is seemingly easy is anything but. There are a huge number of considerations to address to determine the best course of action, but where can you turn. A good place to start is the Divorce Housing Pro. In this capacity, I help divorcing homeowners determine and execute a plan to resolve the disposition of the home.

What I Do:

  • I can advise on the available options and work with you on determining the optimal one.
  • I can provide focused mediation services to work with a divorcing couple in finding the best option that serves both spouses in an equitable manner.
  • I can provide lending support and assist you in applying for the best loan option and securing a loan to begin your act 2.

It’s your home. Make sure that you have a pro in your corner.
