Julius was great to work with. He reached out to me quickly and guided me thus far thru the debt consolidation process. Julius is kind, courteous and maintained professionalism throughout the process. I am awaiting my package and for a client representative to call me in a few days. I can’t wait to start rebuilding my credit and being able to save a little money for important things I need for my family and myself. Kindness goes a long way with me and I really am less stressed right now.. well since this morning after spending time with Julius. Thank you.
I signed on online for a debt relief program. I got a call from Jessica right away. We spoke a few times and ended up speaking to Jennifer the following day. I was hesitant at first. Jennifer explained the whole program. She wasn’t pushy about signing up. She gave me some time to think about it when I asked. After sleeping on it, I decided to sign-up. Jennifer was very helpful. Hopefully everything will work out and I can breathe again.
It took me a while to call in and take that first step to clear up my credit. I was very reluctant to call. However, after talking to Richard, I felt a whole lot better about my situation. Although I am just starting, I feel that this is going to work for me.
