The integration with Calyx Point strengthens our resolve and ability.
San Mateo, Calif. (Vocus) April 7, 2010
The “Great Recession” has left many homeowners and would-be homeowners in severe debt – debt that often puts mortgage loan officers at a loss when it comes to helping them secure a loan to purchase or refinance a home.
Now, thanks to Freedom Debt Relief LLC (FDR) and Calyx Software®, mortgage loan officers have a ready resource to help those consumers resolve their debt problems and better position themselves to qualify for a loan.
In this integration, FDR will provide debt relief information, resources and assistance to consumers referred through Calyx Point®, Calyx’s Microsoft Windows®-based application which provides mortgage automation applications that simplify and automate loan marketing, pre-qualification, origination and processing. According to Calyx, the company is the largest in its industry, with more users than any other loan origination system.
Debt specialists at FDR will help consumers review their debt situation and determine which debt relief option might work best for them. Options may range from tips on how to work directly with creditors to debt consolidation, credit counseling or debt settlement.
FDR’s goal to provide the best possible debt relief services to consumers nationwide meshes well with Calyx’s work in the mortgage industry, according to Andrew Housser, CEO of FDR. “As a strong advocate for regulation and consumer protection in the underserved debt relief market, we at FDR are always seeking out ways to help people get their lives back on track and recover from overwhelming debt – especially in these difficult economic times. The integration with Calyx Point strengthens our resolve and ability.”
“Working with Calyx in this type of partnership will give mortgage loan officers nationwide a strong option to offer consumers whose debt is rendering them unable to pursue the mortgage process,” continues Housser. “The economy has affected so many Americans in the housing market. Now, Calyx users can provide consumers in severe debt hardship a way to learn how to resolve that debt and then, in time, be able to purchase or refinance a home.”
“At Calyx, it is important that we do whatever we can to help those consumers who come to us,” says Dennis Boggs, senior vice president of business development at Calyx. “With the reach that our software provides in the industry, and the addition of Freedom Debt Relief’s help, we can assist more people than ever in resolving their debt problems and ultimately reaching their home ownership goals.”
