Lou joined DHIC in March 2013, as a Homeownership Advisor, with a focus on foreclosure prevention. His primary goal is to help as many people as possible with the homeownership. He meets with his clients and reviews their entire financial picture, helping them to decide what is best for their specific situation throughout the home-buying process.
With over 20 years experience in the lending industry, Lou is able to leverage this experience with a practical hands-on approach to homeownership advising. In addition, to helping potential homeowners, he is also well-versed in the foreclosure prevention arena by offering retention and liquidation options with the help of the borrower’s servicing institution. Additionally, his role includes facilitating homeownership and monitoring the eHome America Online Education course offered through DHIC, as well as providing one-on-one homeownership counseling.
Prior to joining DHIC, Lou was a Mortgage Loan Officer for 16 years. Lou was a Single Point of Contact with a major financial institution in the area, where he cultivated the skills needed in the Loss Mitigation field to help his clients. He started his career in the financial field in customer service with several finance companies and banks. This experience helped him cultivate the importance of taking care of my clients and providing all available options. Similarly, in his various previous roles, he sees himself as more of a financial advisor, helping his clients navigate the financial landscape. As a member of DHIC’s Homeownership Center team, Lou is able to help clients achieve their personal financial goals.
