Willie: A Long Journey to Home Ownership

Willie: A Long Journey to Home Ownership
November 26, 2019 Torrey Park

“The blessed part was that it didn’t cost anything… I had a connection with Evette, and she gave me a realistic view of what sort of work I needed to do to actually purchase a home.”

Willie spent years and thousands of dollars trying to repair his credit with for-profit companies that never delivered what they promised.

Discouraged, he found himself looking for help at a Prosperity Connection class over four years ago. “It all started with my financial coach, Evette,” he says about his financial journey.

“The blessed part was that it didn’t cost anything… I had a connection with Evette, and she gave me a realistic view of what sort of work I needed to do to actually purchase a home.”

Four years of hard work later, and Willie is settled into a beautiful home that he purchased in June. Overlooking a golf course, complete with a home movie theater and playroom for the grandkids downstairs, Willie is finally in a place that’s all his own.

It was not an easy road to get there. Over the course of four years, Willie kept working on short-term goals that got him closer and closer to homeownership. At the same time, Evette introduced him to one of our banking partners, Dion Fields. Evette, Dion, and Willie’s real estate agent Valerie became what Willie calls his “dream team,” who saw him through personal setbacks and a home purchase that fell through at the last minute.

Evette says Willie is “the most patient man alive,” who kept working through disappointment in order to achieve his goal. The hardest part, according to Willie, was staying on track; it is easy to get distracted from your goals when you have other financial obligations.

Willie credits his success to his dream team and to God. After years of taking steps towards his goals, he says, “Dreams really do come true, but you have to really want it and stay focused; trust God and you can do it.”

Congratulations to Willie!
