First-time Home Buyer
Getting Credit on Track
Achieving My Goals
The Services at Breaking Chains where inspiration in me achieving my goal of home ownership; after meeting with Ms. Jackie Huggins Jones, I was well prepared and focus on the purchase of a home and the steps to be followed.
We took the time to comb through my finances and assets, we talked about all the expenses that where going to be needed and acquired. We wrote out a financial plan and guideline to follow, which prepared me for what was to come.
In the beginning I had a goal, I did what I knew, first I prayed, then I wrote out a plan to save and set a date according to my lease ending, I asked questions, I took a class to better prepare myself then I started looking I stuck to the plan I found some help God blessed me and I was able to meet some good people (Jackie) along the journey and it’s moving right along I found a house. I was denied a loan at the first bank that I applied, Ms. Jackie comfort me and pointed me in the right direction with a different bank and down payment assistance program.
I put in a bid and to an agreement with the sellers. I have completed the Loan application, which all fees I was prepared for, I opened up an escrow account with $500 just like we discussed, I had the home inspected which I was prepared for, but if the inspection is good and everything works out with the appraisal, I will be a successful home owner and I am very appreciate of the guidance and assistance that was provided.
Thank you for all your help and assistance you are awesome.
I Never Used a Budget
I found myself living from payday to payday. I went to Breaking Chains Inc. for budget counseling. I was not aware of the mount of money I was spending until I started receiving counseling with Breaking Chains Inc. Thank you for helping and showing me another way.
Thank You and God Bless You Always

Keeping Me Off the Ledge…
Good Evening Mrs. Huggins Jones,
I just wanted you to know that I paid the rest of my closing cost $547.07, last night and sign about 90 pages with the title company and the transfer is complete as of today. At this point, I am waiting on my keys.
I shed some very happy tears and I am very excited. Thank you for helping me achieve one of my goals and making this a very pleasurable experience. Everyone was great. Sean and Karmen were excellent. The title closer was great, and I could not ask for better customer service!
Thank for keeping me off the ledge.
