Homebuyer's Education


with Heather Massow

Calendar May 7, 2018 at 5:30 pm

The 4-session hoMEworks homebuyer education classes provide an opportunity to learn about the home buying process in a neutral environment. Buyers who have taken home buying classes are more confident when asking questions and making decisions about homeownership and loan products. Education gives buyers the tools they need to avoid predatory lending and possible foreclosure.

Heather Massow, Certified Housing Counselor and Educator, has worked with Penquis for more than eight years. Heather currently works with clients who are facing foreclosure, teaches homebuyer education classes and works one-on-one with pre-purchase clients helping them become credit-ready to purchase a home. Previously, she worked in the mortgage banking industry for about 14 years processing, originating and closing loans.
