We Promise!

We Promise!

It’s been a while since I read a newspaper. When I scanned the headlines this week, the news was less than uplifting. The Federal program meant to help families in foreclosure is failing. The economy is not improving and in fact the poverty level in Michigan is the highest it has been in 16 years.

If you are tired of reading only the gloomy stuff, here is something positive to read. If you are having a financial hardship and facing a Michigan foreclosure, this is our Four Point Promise to you:

  • We will never ask you for money.
  • We will never put you in a situation that is worse than you are currently in.
  • We will always keep all of your information 100% confidential.
  • We will always work harder than anybody, doing whatever we can, to permanently stop your foreclosure situation.

Give us a call to get your questions answered, to explore options and gather information about Michigan foreclosures. Let us help you focus on what can be done to fix the situation instead of all the negative that led up to the situation. We are waiting to hear from you so we can put our promises to work for you!

Robo-signers, MERS, and Moratoriums, oh my!

Robo-signers, MERS, and Moratoriums, oh my!

The news is full of the latest information and speculation about the mortgage industry and foreclosures. This recent article sums up the situation the best of any article I have read to date.

Despite all this speculation about what is going to happen next, the fact is that 75 houses were foreclosed on this week within Kent, Kalamazoo and Ottawa counties combined. So foreclosures are still occurring.

The bottom line is that if you took a loan out on a house and promised to pay it back, you are still obligated to pay that loan. Just because some of the lenders may have messed up and did something wrong, doesn’t give you the OK to stop paying your mortgage and do something wrong too. Remember what Mom said –if your friends jumped off the bridge, would you jump too? Too wrongs do not make a right. If you are already behind on your mortgage payments and facing a Michigan foreclosure, you need to keep looking for solutions. Sooner or later, the foreclosure machine will start back up again and wouldn’t you rather be ahead of it instead of back in the middle of it?

Give us a call and let’s talk about your situation and options. It is business as usual for us and we are here to help you. We are plugged into similar businesses across the country and we are getting daily updates on changes and decisions from some of the top experts in the industry. Let us sort out all the speculation for you and help you navigate through the craziness. Give us a call and let’s get you on the road to a brighter future.

Make That Call! – More Testimonials Of Families Who Are Glad They Did

There are many reasons people have financial hardships and face a Michigan foreclosure. Whatever the reason that you are behind on your payment, give us a call and we will help you understand your options.  We understand it can be hard to make that first call.  Here are some folks who did call us and are glad they did.

I try to keep up with posting testimonials here on this blog and also here, but sometimes I just can’t stay caught up. So, I’m taking this time to publish several of the last few months to give you a feel for the families we’ve been able to help out.

If you want to be next, it’s obvious you’re not alone, so give us a call – before you know it, you could be sitting at a closing, with the weight of your lender (and the world) off your back.


I had perfect credit to start. The housing market took a dive, my relationship broke apart, and I was left trying to make it in this economy. I tried everything I could think of to get help. Banks, government, letters from the mail stating they could help. Nothing worked. I could not refinance, did not qualify for a government loan, I owed more on the house than it’s worth. I went through 4 realtors and my house was on the market for 30 months. My last realtor told me to call Great Lakes Home Solutions. I did and as of now it was my best move so far. My house sold on short sale and as of now I do not have to pay the difference to the bank. They settled everything for me and I did not have to get involved. I must thank them for everything.

John, Portage, Michigan


We were forced to relocate out of state because we are in the military & were recommended to talk to Great Lakes Home Solutions.  Due to the current economy, and only owning our home for four years, we were very “upside down” on our mortgage.  All of the people we worked with at Great Lakes Home Solutions were very friendly, thorough and made us feel very comfortable with our decision to try to short sale our home.  Once we were out of state, they kept us updated on status and made it very easy to complete the short sale.  Thank you very much for everything!

Brent & Cori, Ravenna, Michigan


I would recommend Great Lakes Home Solutions to anyone needing a short sale to sell their home. After finding myself with reduced hours at work I needed to sell my home. GLHS was very friendly and helpful. Not only did GLHS move quickly to buy my home, they helped negotiate the elimination of $68,000 owed.

Wish You Were An Ostrich?

Wish You Were An Ostrich?

Have you ever wished you were an ostrich? You know what I mean, when trouble is coming, so you just want to stick your head in the ground and pretend like everything’s perfect?  Well, I can tell you that I have.  I’ve had days where I didn’t even want to walk to my mailbox because I was afraid of what I might find in it.

It turns out, that the fear is usually worse than the actually problem.  Once I built my courage up and headed out to get my mail, I sat down and came up with a plan to fix things.  And that’s exactly what you can do too.  If you know that you can’t make your next Michigan mortgage payment, or that you’ve already missed some, and are facing a Michigan Foreclosures, take control.  Give us a call and we’ll discuss what options you have for solving your foreclosure problems.  Trust me, it won’t be as bad as you’re thinking it would be.
