Business Description: Our fully scalable team has been proudly serving the Real Estate Community since 2006. Ahead of the competition, Fair Housing Initiatives (FHI) began partnering with Realtors, attorneys, title companies and CPA’s prior to the mortgage crisis. In an effort to alleviate the burden of mortgage debt for homeowners in financial hardship, FHI facilitates workouts such as short sale, loan modification and deed-in-lieu, all at no cost to the already struggling homeowner. By creating a comprehensive “hub” for you and your clientele, FHI coordinates the transaction as a third party in this highly specialized field. By establishing a comprehensive and safe atmosphere, FHI bolsters trust, confidence and eliminates the highly charged emotion associated with this complex process.
