Save the Dream of Home Ownership Reported by: KARK 4 News Tuesday, Nov 18, 2008 04:55pm CST

Crye-Leike Realtors are always interested in selling homes, but right now they’re also focused on keeping people in the ones they already own.


Company owners have sent a letter to all their brokers and sales associates about helping clients ‘Save the Dream.’


That letter asks agents to find just one family who may be facing foreclosure and help them reach out to their lender or housing counseling agency.


The hope is that with the help of Crye-Leike, homeowners can begin process of exploring a loan workout solution.


Such a process has already worked for George Woolford of Sherwood.


His ex-wife’s default on a divorce agreement left his house near foreclosure and his credit standing in peril.


Realtor Keisha Brown helped him craft a deal that worked for him.


He wanted to be able to be current enough to sell his house and preserve his dream of owning again in the future.


That’s just what’s happened.
