To All Interested Parties:

This is my open letter of commendation for the work that Northeast Denver Housing Center does for the Denver area and surrounding communities.

 I approached Northeast Denver Housing Center in two different times of need. They assisted me in helping to get a reverse mortgage for my Mother, which made a significant difference in her lifestyle and peace of mind. And, they also assisted me when I fell behind on my mortgage payments. Based on my experience with their assistance with the reverse mortgage process, I felt comfortable in approaching them to give me guidance with my own mortgage.

Miriam Leon was my counselor through the loan modification process. Her professionalism and kindness made me feel confident that we could find a solution, and within a few weeks, Miriam and the center helped me resolve our crisis with our mortgage lender in a way that was very favorable and workable.

Northeast Denver Housing Center is a valuable resource in the Denver area, and their professionalism is greatly appreciated.

To whom it may concern , 

I want to say a word of thanks to the Northeast Denver Housing Center at 1735 Gaylord St. in Denver and in particular Housing Counselor, Miriam Leon.

A few months ago, I was on the tail end of a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I was behind on house payments and generally struggling. I was lost.

A realtor friend of mine recommended I call Northeast Denver Housing Center and speak to Miriam Leon. After explaining briefly my situation and after having a meeting, Miriam got the ball rolling with my Lender, Wells Fargo, and initiated a start on a loan modification. This took several months of jumping through hoops, doing and re-doing profit and loss statements, supplying bank statements and all manner of detailed nitpicky requests from Wells Fargo. 

Miriam seemed to be able to get hold of all the right people to help us get through this .

She was there for me all the way and was instrumental in helping me submit everything that Wells Fargo required; after which I spoke briefly with the representative at Wells Fargo and heard nothing for 2 or 3 weeks .

Yesterday, I was informed by mail that my HAMP modification had been approved by Wells Fargo and we have 3 months of trial payments at a wonderful new affordable rate . All we have to do to make this a permanent situation is to pay the new payments on time for 3 months and we're there .

I went in to Northeast Denver Housing Center with the paperwork from Wells Fargo the day after I received my notification. Miriam was there again to make sure all was in order and once again got through to the right person on the phone at Wells Fargo.

Thanks to Miriam my Loan Modification is now official and in place and ready to go with my first payment due May 1st 2015.

 A BIG Thank You, to all at Northeast Denver Housing Center. You changed my family's life .

To Miriam Leon,

Me and Tammy wanted to just say thanks for helping us get our home in order. I know it's your job, but as 1st time home owners, we really needed an advocate to help guide us through this process.

Thanks for everything.

Dear Ms. Taylor,

Signing and returning the materials- Certificate of HECM Counseling just wasn't enough.

I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as you guided me through the Reverse Mortgage Counseling Sessions. It has been a long time since I've worked with someone who was so thoughtful and sincere.

It has been ages since I've worked with someone so special.

To Whom It May Concern: 

My wife and I came to Northeast Denver Housing Center back in August 16, 2012. I had lost a lot of hours at work and my income was way lower than when I first got the house.  We were 10 months behind on our mortgage, we tried to apply for a modification but we had a co-borrower not living with us and were not able to get him to sign the paperwork.

We didn’t know how to proceed so we contacted Housing Counselor, Miriam Leon at NDHC. She was always very nice and helpful, she helped us with all of the paperwork even filling it out because we didn’t know how to.  After many months of working with our lender we obtained a permanent modification that reinstated our loan and dropped the payment from $967.00 to $823.00 after 2 years and 1 month of not paying the mortgage because of negotiations.

We are very happy to keep the house and also to afford it. We wanted to thank NDHC!

Dear Miriam and Northeast Denver Housing Center,

A sigh of relief as I was able to save my house! I just want to say a HUGE thank you for all the work you did for me...

In what seemed to be a process that drew out for months, I must have contacted you over a dozen times with questions / concerns. Each call / request was handled by you as a true professional. Prompt, polite, courteous and caring are all adjectives that describe you. Trust me when I say you were my main comrade through the process, taking time to call the mortgage company, the lawyer and anyone else that you thought could help.

Even though my options turned out to be pretty limited, you gave me the strength to continue the fight. Never underestimate who you are, and the help you provide on a daily basis. You truly have the power to make a difference. You gave me hope and inspired me when things were seemingly at their worse.

For that, I just want to say thank you.

Sincerely and Respectfully,

*John Smith

Dear Miriam Leon,

We first came to Northeast Denver Housing Center in May 16, 2013 with a foreclosure sale date of July 24, 2014. After working with another agency with no results we decided to come in to meet with you. Martin had been laid off after working in the same company for over 13 years. That was very sad news for the family.

 We have 4 grandchildren living with us in the home and we have to provide for them with just Martin’s income. We were 11 months behind when we first met with you in May of 2013. Around Christmas time was very hard for us as the sale date had been pushed to the first week of January 2014. You work very hard for us all, and we want to thank you for all that you did for our family.

 Somehow after months and months of negotiations and exploring options we were able to obtain a non-delegated modification from our lender. We were able to keep our home and start fresh again with our loan current. You made sure you didn’t stop working with us until we made all three trial payments. You were always so helpful and available for our needs. 

Also, you provided us with other resources that helped our young kids tremendously, and for that we are grateful of you and everyone at Northeast Denver Housing Center.
