The Secret to Paying Off Debt Forever

(and the 5 best ways to make it happen)

Paying off debt is similar to dieting.

I can relate to both. I am about 60 pounds lighter than I was at my heaviest. And I’ve paid off over $1,000,000 in debt.

It wasn’t easy. I had my struggles. I had bad days. I had thoughts of giving up.

Here’s the secret to success at both dieting and defeating debt…once and for all. Are you ready? It’s going to seem so obvious but it’s the secret that helped me and I think it will help you too. The secret is to not worry about being perfect.

Life happens. Things get in the way. Heck, you get in your own way. But that’s ok. Knowing this and accepting this is what you need to be successful.

It happens every time. The week you decide to go “all-in” on your diet you get invited to a family get-together. Maybe it’s a BBQ. Maybe a birthday. Whatever it is there are always treats that can get you “off track”. It’s ok.

The first thing you see when you walk in is the chocolate cake. It’s sitting there staring at you. Whispering your name. The rich and moist chocolate cake with the decadent chocolate ganache. You can just imagine it melting in your mouth. Is your mouth watering yet?
(Not a chocolate fan? Just imagine your favorite dessert instead.πŸͺ🍩🍦)

Instead of avoiding it, have a slice. Don’t be perfect. Indulge sometimes. Live life.

Same goes for paying off debt. You’ll begin your journey of paying off debt and, just like dieting, you’ll have something pop up. Maybe it is new tires. Doctor bill. Or an invitation to go out with family or friends.

Handle it. Solve it. Then get back to it.

Of course, you can’t indulge your every desire when you’re on a diet. And you can’t splurge whenever you choose when you’re paying off debt. But every once in a while it is important to go “off track”. Because, it is what keeps you going. Failing at being perfect means you are more likely to give up…because you already failed. But if you work some of these “off track” moments into the plan, you didn’t fail. You just followed the expected plan.

With this in mind there are five ways to defeat debt once and for all. Let’s dive in…

1. Debt Snowball

My buddy Dave made this debt payoff strategy popular.

Maybe you know Dave? He has a radio show. And a TV show. He even wrote a book. Yeah, that Dave. Dave Ramsey.

Dave likes this strategy because it keep you motivated. The more motivated you are the more likely you are to stick to it. And defeat debt, once and for all!

Paying off a small balance and feeling accomplished is why it works so well and that’s how the debt snowball strategy works.

  • First, you pay off the debt with the lowest balance using any excess money you have available each month.
  • Then, you take all the money you were putting towards paying off that debt and apply it to the next lowest balance.
  • Each time you feel good. You’re making progress. You’re paying off debt.
  • Repeat this process until all debts are paid off.

Simple, yet effective.

2. Debt Avalanche

Why are all the debt strategies so cold? Snow…now avalanche?

I guess they just make good metaphors. Are are they similes? I wasn’t all that great with these things. And now look at me now…writing blog posts! Ha!

Anyway, I got sidetracked there.

Imagine a small snowball rolling down the hill. As it rolls it grows larger picking up more snow along the way. Eventually it is so large it is impossible to slow down. That’s why they call is “debt snowball”.

But now, consider the force of an avalanche. It starts out of nowhere. It is impossible to stop, even from the start. It is powerful.

The reason this strategy is called the debt avalanche is because it is a very powerful debt payoff strategy.
Here’s how it works (I think you’ll see the similarities to the snowball):

  • First, pay off the debt with the highest interest rate.
  • Once paid use the money to pay off the next highest rate debt.
  • Repeat until all debts are paid.

This strategy results in a lower cost, but you have to be patient.

When I first started paying off my $1,000,000 in debt I had a lot of little debts. Student loans, auto loans, whatever. But one of the biggest debts also had a pretty high rate. I had a balance over $40,000 with a rate over 10%. Oh, and it was an interest only debt. I wasn’t even paying it off through normal payments! I needed to get that things paid off. But with just a small excess available to pay down the balance, it was going to take a while.

That’s the good and the bad with this strategy. Sure, you are paying off the debt youΒ should be paying off because it will result in less interest paid, overall. But the time it could take to pay off that first debt could be…wait for it…years!

Can you be that disciplined for that long? Or would you rather see some progress? Only you can decide. Whatever you decide is the right decision…for you. Don’t worry what others have done or what is “optimal”. Follow the plan that works for you.

3. Cash Flow

I made this up. Wait, that sounds wrong. I invented this. No, that’s not right either. Whatever, I came up with this strategy to help my mortgage clients.

As you can imagine, many clients who want to buy a home have some work to do before they buy. Sometimes they need to work on their credit. Other times they need to pay off debt. Or save for down payment. But all of these things are related.

That’s why I created this method of paying off debt. It gives you freedom and flexibility.

Freedom and flexibility is important when buying a home. You need to have options. To negotiate and secure the home you want. Freeing up monthly cash flow is a great way of creating freedom and flexibility. That’s what this strategy does.

It may not be as simple as the snowball or avalanche strategy, but I think it is better for most people. Here’s how it works:

  • First, find the debt with the highest payment-to-balance ratio.
    • For example, let’s say you have a $1,000 balance with a $100 payment and a $2,500 balance with a $150 payment.
    • Divide the balance by the payment. $100/$1000 = .10 and $150/$2500 = .06.
  • Whichever has the highest number is the debt you pay off first.
  • Repeat until all debts are paid off (or you need to stop)

Doing this will require the least amount of money to give you the biggest impact in your monthly cash flow.

I like this for my mortgage clients because sometimes we need to lower monthly payments. Other times we need to put money into saving for a down payment. Following this strategy gives us the ability to start and stop whenever we want while giving us the largest benefit to mortgage qualifying or freeing up cash to save more money.

But it works in life too. One of the biggest things that stops people from succeeding in paying off debt is those unexpected expenses. Doctor bills. Auto repairs. If you have the freedom and flexibility to pay for those things in cash (from the excess cash flow) rather than on credit, then you can stay on track and keep moving forward.

4. Sell & Buy a Home

What?! How is selling my home and buying another going to help me pay off debt?

I am not suggesting that if you don’t want to move that you should move just to pay off debt. But many people in debt would move if they knew it was possible.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get a newer, nicer, more spacious home and pay off debt at the same time.
All while keeping your monthly payments somewhat the same (or even lower)?

As your home value goes up and you pay down your mortgage balance you build equity. But it’s frozen! (now, is this a simile?)

Selling your home gives you access to that equity.

You might be thinking that when you sell your home and get the equity that you must put that equity into your next home. Maybe you are concerned about being taxed. Maybe you thought it was a rule of some kind.

Well, there’s no rule saying you have to take your equity from the home you sell and put it towards the home you buy.
There is also an IRS exemption on paying taxes on your equity (up to $500,000) when selling the home you use as your primary home:

If you have a capital gain from the sale of your main home, you may qualify to exclude up to $250,000 of that gain from your income, or up to $500,000 of that gain if you file a joint return with your spouse.

Ready to Move? Want More Freedom?

Most people miss a huge opportunity when they sell their home and buy another. They don’t realize the power of their home equity. Your equity is your cash. To do what you want and what best serves you. But identifying the best way to use your cash when you sell and buy is critical.

Equity Transition Planning allows us the opportunity to ask the right questions with our professional mortgage experience to advise you on how to best leverage your equity to work for you in the best way.

Now that we know that we can use that money however we choose what should we do with it?

This is where I suggest you zoom out. It is easy to get tunnel vision and think all the money tied to your home should remain tied to the next home. To lower the monthly payments. To avoid mortgage insurance. To give you equity in the next home.

But, zooming out gives you perspective. What matters most? My guess is two things:

  • Now
  • Later

You want to be comfortable now. You want to enjoy life. You want to provide for your family.
You also want to be comfortable later. You want to be free from having to work. You want to not worry about money.

Can you work towards improving both of these at the same time? I think so.

Use your equity to pay off debt. Sometimes the debt you pay off could be at a lower rate than what you could get on a mortgage. But stick with me for a moment and I’ll explain why.

Remember what I said about the Cash Flow debt payoff strategy? It gives youΒ freedom!

The same is true here. Paying off debt to free up cash flow gives you freedom. You can use this excess cash flow to improve your future. Save for your kids’ college. Contribute to retirement savings. Invest in real estate or stocks.

Without the cash flow you wouldn’t have these options. Sure, the mortgage may have a slightly higher payment than you’d like, but without any other debt (or very minimal debt) you have options you didn’t have before.

Oh yeah, you’ll also have a nice, new, spacious home that is more suitable for your family than the one you own now.

5. Refinance

The only way to tap into yourΒ frozen equity is to sell or get a loan.

Refinancing is one way to get access to the equity to use it in a way that benefits you more than just sitting there.

If you have enough equity you can cash out the equity and use it to pay off debt. Maybe make some home improvements that were put off.

I’ve talked about how important freedom is. I’m even an author on the topic. Refinancing may be able to give you more freedom. If you are not looking to move, but want to take advantage of all the opportunities you would get from accessing your equity, then a cash-out refinance may be a great option.

⚠️ Let me issue a warning though… ⚠️

Refinancing can be a very costly solution for those that don’t carefully consider the short-term and long-term benefits…and drawbacks. You should clearly know the costs. The savings. The use of your freed up equity and how it will benefit you greater than leaving it frozen and in place.

But for others it can be the life-saving solution. To finally get ahead. To not have to stress every single month about money.

Want to Find Out if a Refi Is Right for You?

Refinancing your mortgage is an incredible tool that can help many people achieve their financial goals, if done properly. Too often people are led into believing a refinance is the solution when it could actually do more harm than good.

We believe in full transparency. We run the calculations. Show you your options. Provide our professional advice and allow you to make an informed decision.

Completing a Refi Analysis will give you peace of mind knowing that refinancing is right (or not) for you.

Now What?

What are you going to do?

You have two choices:

  1. Something
  2. Nothing

You don’t have to do anything. In some cases, it may be best to do nothing.

But, if you got this far my guess is you need (or want) to do something about your debt. You want to get rid of it. Defeat it!

Take control and create freedom.

How can I help? I got out of debt. A lot of debt. Over $1,000,000 in debt. I had my challenges. I used all these strategies along the way.

I help people get out of debt every day.

Full disclaimer: I also help a lot of people get into debt. Mortgage debt. To help people buy homes. Because I believe in homeownership. It is one of the best ways to create wealth and has been proven to be effective. Homeowners are about 40X more wealthy than renters. There’s a reason for that.

Are you using the wealth you are creating, in the form of equity, to benefit you? If not, we should talk.

Ready to Move? Want More Freedom?

Most people miss a huge opportunity when they sell their home and buy another. They don’t realize the power of their home equity. Your equity is your cash. To do what you want and what best serves you. But identifying the best way to use your cash when you sell and buy is critical.

Equity Transition Planning allows us the opportunity to ask the right questions with our professional mortgage experience to advise you on how to best leverage your equity to work for you in the best way.

We have worked with Joe Eagan for several years now, our daughter had financed her new home through citywide and recommended them to us because she really was happy with her new home loan and said we could trust them to be honest and help us. We contacted them and worked with Joe on a refinance...amazing, Joe let us know every step of the way and we got such a great rate, and he did all the work. Now new higher rates on credit cards, I didn't really know what to do, I called Joe, even after a few years and he worked on a home equity line of credit..we will pay off our credit cards at a rate that will actually pay off the principal and again...he did the work...Just wanted to say THANKS JOE!!! The recommendation goes on...
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
We had a great experience with the Wynn & Eagan team, and I will definitely recommend them for buying a home. They were very professional and precise on what was needed to purchase our beautiful home. I am very pleased with the step by step process on letting us know what phase we were during the loan process. Highly recommended
πŸ‘
I worked with Marla Wynn and Joe Eagan of the Wynn Eagan group to be approved for and then close on our new condo in Kailua-Kona. They were not just wonderful to work with, they and their whole team were phenomenal. I have two family members who were simultaneously getting a mortgage and a refi and they complained about the lack of communication and sometimes unprofessionalism of the mortgage companies they went through. I would speak of how well things were going for me, the weekly and sometimes daily update emails, the electronic forms process and more. They would look at me and say they wished they had the same experience as I did. I am very pleased with the outcome. Joe Eagan and his team were professional every step of the way, got me a great rate for a second home (in a complicated Hawaii regulatory state) and communicated with me multiple times a week. For someone with 15+ years in customer service I can't say enough about Wynn & Eagan. They exceeded the expectation I had for working with a mortgage company. πŸ˜πŸ€™πŸ½πŸ’ͺβœοΈβ˜€οΈπŸ–πŸ‘

Joe was fantastic to work with from the moment I contacted the Wynn & Eagan Team.

I am happy with the mortgage that Joe set me up with, and his professionalism is second to none.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Cyndi, Joe, Donna, and Tori were all so amazing!! I couldnt possibly imagine how anyone could be more informative, knowledgeable, prompt, or professional than The Wynn team. I would highly recommend them to anyone in purchasing, or refinancing a home.

πŸ‘
The Wynn Team was great! They made the experience less stressful with awesome communication and answering the many questions we had. Thank you!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
We were thinking of refinancing our current mortgage. We received a call from Wynn & Eagan Team inquiring if we wanted to refinance since the mortgage rates are dropping. My husband asked for some data to show if it would be worth it to refinance. Within 24 hours, we were provided the data. We chose to refinance. The team helped us through every step of the process. They kept us informed weekly of where we were in the financing process. I strongly recommend this team as they are informative and very professional

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Scott Wynn actually created the Youtube videos that attracted me to contact Wynn & Eagan in the first place. It was 2 videos - 1 explaining the difference between CHFA & FHA, the other walks you through the different types of FHA programs - both were extremely helpful. Joe Eagan was the one I actually ended up working with through the process and he was extremely helpful through this entire thing. From the beginning, he stood out among other lenders. He was not only responsive and professional, but kind and I never dreaded having to speak with him. Up front, he always helped me to fully understand everything about the process and all of my options. I even ended up working with a couple of other folks on the Wynn & Eagan team throughout the process and everyone was professional and courteous! I loved working with the Wynn & Eagan team and have no doubt I will choose them for future home purchases as well. Thanks for being a piece of making my dream of becoming a homeowner come true!!
πŸ‘
The easiest loans I have ever done! Love Wynn & Eagan Team!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Wynn and Eagan team helped make us first time home owners. They helped us every step of the way keeping us on track to success. It was exciting and terrifying but they were there step by step. Huge Mahalo from the Roberson ohana. Oh! And let's not forget to thank them for the beautiful gift we received on our front porch on move in day. Mahalo plenty Wynn and Eagan.
πŸ‘
Had an awesome experience with the Wynn team. Just completed a refi, everything went smoothly, everyone was very helpful and friendly. Even close a few days early,
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great team to work with! The entire staff was friendly and professional, always wrote back the same day, and sent over weekly updates to ensure the house purchase stayed on track. Although the home buying process had a lot going on (and quickly), I was glad I had the Wynn & Eagan team supporting me throughout, as I have no doubt it would have been significantly more stressful without their support and organization. Will definitely work with them again should I purchase another home in the future!
πŸ‘
They made an intimidating process simple and straight-forward. I was so happy with the communication and the way they explained the entire process. Thank you, Wynn Team!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I loved my experience with Wynn & Eagan. As a first time home buyer, they made everything very clear and easy for me to understand. They got me a much better interest rate than I was quoted at another lender, which I really appreciated! They even sent me a cute housewarming giftbox and later on, a birthday card. You are in great hands if you choose Wynn & Eagan.
πŸ‘
From beginning to end, everyone with The Wynn Team was up front, honest and thorough! No phone call or email was ever left unanswered. We appreciate all the hard work ensuring we got the best rate for our refinance. Thank you all!!!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I have used The Wynn & Eagan team for my 1st home purchase, my refinance and the purchase of my 2nd home. I have absolutely no complaints about this company! They are the absolute best in the business! Professional, friendly, knowledgeable, etc. etc. Give them your business!
πŸ‘
When I bought my first home a few years ago I had no idea what to expect. The process was surprisingly easy, until 5 days before closing when an unexpected surprise from the seller almost ruined my ability to buy the home I had fallen in love with. The Wynn Team jumped into action, and pulled off something incredible. I was able to buy a short-sale home in 5 days. At the time I was grateful, but didn't realize just HOW great The Wynn Team really was. I worked for another lender a year after that and couldn't believe that his way of originating was the 'norm'. It was terrible - practices, customer service, communication, everything. I will forever love and talk about The Wynn Team to anyone that will listen. From a professional and personal stand-point I know that The Wynn Team is the best loan origination team in Colorado.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Wynn Team!!!! I've worked with dozens and dozens of different lenders over the last 10 years as a real estate agent, and these guys are BY FAR the BEST!!! There is no better lender out there that I have found! Their communication, systems, and knowledge are unmatched, and they have great, competitive rates as well. Whether you are a first-timer or a seasoned home buyer, the Wynn Team is the way to go!!
πŸ‘
Very professional and did a great job on our refinance. Highly recommend
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Joe, Jennifer, and Cindy have helped me with the purchase of my house and now 2 refinances. They have been a joy to work with each time. I ask a lot of questions and they are always patient and understanding. Cindy had helped me get an amazing 1st time buyer loan that I still benefit from today, Joe guided me to the to get the best rate possible rate (twice!), and Jennifer worked hard to make sure all my numbers were right and everything closed without a hitch, even when the old mortgage company couldn’t get the payoff right. I couldn’t give them a higher recommendation and they will always be my mortgage lender!
πŸ‘
Always a great experience working with Joe and the whole team. I highly recommend these folks!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Wynn and Eagan team are always so wonderful! We have used them twice now and each time they were quick, friendly, kind, answered all our questions and great to work with. We wouldn't use anyone else!
πŸ‘
Very easy refinance! Happy we got referred.

Extremely professional, efficient and friendly! I worked with Joe and Tori and found them to be invaluable! With the amount of stress a person is under when selling and buying a home, these folks are the epitome of patience and grace! Not one deadline missed for required paperwork and we were kept abreast of all things happening with our account. They are incredible! I would consider them peerless in their field. If you want your loan done well and done correctly, this is the group to do it!

The Wynn Team was very professional, organized, detailed, and timely. This truly was a one-stop experience for all of our real estate needs.

The Wynn team has been so helpful when my husband was trying to get a loan. They were on the spot by getting things done on a timely matter. When he called they would answer his questions, very knowledgeable, professional, and always were willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Top notch through out the entire process. The entire team was responsive and helpful, often answering questions before we even had them. It was a smooth process and I even learned a few things along the way given there tenacity for making sure that I understood what was going on Start to Finish. This is a very complicated thing and it certainly helps to work with people that insist on keeping you as comfortable as possible. I think the Wynn Team will be seeing us again in 5 to 10 years.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My experience with Cindy and the rest of the team there was nothing short of stellar! They made the process as easy as getting a mortgage can be. They got me approved for more than a competitor could. The thing that impressed me the most was their follow through. Any time I had a question, there was an immediate response. They were always very pleasant and eager to help. I would use them again without hesitation and will happily encourage anyone I know wanting a mortgage to work with them as well. The service they provided was quite amazing and I'm grateful to them for making the acquisition of my condo as smooth as it was.

Marla, I have bought quite a number of homes in my life. More than the normal person I am guessing. And I cannot stress to you enough how wonderful the Wynn team is. This entire process has been a breeze. From beginning to end, we have found a house, lost it, found another, lost our buyer etc… But through it all, the Wynn Team was the only thing that kept us sane. Art Vogt is AMAZING! I actually began to enjoy his weekly call to update us and remind us what we still needed to get in. We were referred to you, and we will do the same in the future. I already have told a co-worker about you. Thanks again for a great experience. Mark and Dawn Hudson PS…We did receive the Congrats Pack, and LOVE it!

We worked primarily with Joe to purchase our third home, along with three boys under the age of five. You can imagine how stressful home buying is with two toddlers and an infant, but Joe made the process easy! He was always so responsive, helpful, and polite. Always checking in to see how the home search was going and it really felt like he cared about us as clients. We will be using him in the future and will be recommending him to anyone and everyone! Tori, the processor we worked with was fantastic as well!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Phenomenal Service!! I didn't even represent the buyer in my transaction but as the listing agent, I was kept well informed and up to date on any and everything that the buyers were doing or obligations they needed to fulfill. I love the weekly updates and never had to question where we were in the process. It was an absolute joy to work with you! I wish all transactions could be this smooth. Thank you for your hard work, professionalism and superior service.

We've used the Wynn and Eagan team several times for mortgages and recommend them to anyone looking to buy/refinance. They always close on time and make every transaction smooth, no matter the market conditions. I've never had to move a date because of Wynn and Eagan and they've never steered us into a bad financial situation. They also contact us with recommendations, tailored to our situation, after the transaction so we continue to have tips and tools to save money long-term. Highly recommend!

I purchased my first home with the Wynn Team and I can absolutely say they were the best. After speaking with Joe Eagan, I knew I didn't need to shop around. They were on top of everything! So much so that when I got to the closing table, everyone (including the listing agent) commended him for his speedy responses and spot on work. Loved them and will definitely be going back to them when I'm ready for my next home! πŸ™‚

Every one keeps asking us how did you get your house, especially right now? How did you get started? Well family and friends let me tell you about my extraordinarily home buying process. First step was making a phone call. We called them up, got a list of things we needed to gather and turned it in. Poof it was that simple! AND THAT WAS THE HARDEST PART!!! It was so easy. Why was it so easy? Because Scott Wynn and his team have a whole way of doing business that makes it seem like a breeze. My friends at the Wynn & Eagan Team take such pride in making sure they worked hard so We didn't have too. It's was so great to have everyone on the same page. What a relief. We had no idea what were doing as far as the process, but with the Wynn 7 Eagan Team by our side they made us proud and confident by keeping us informed and educated about every step that was taken. They have phenomenal customer service! Any questions we had they had an answer with in minutes. Sometimes we didn't even have questions because they had covered everything already. The whole process was so fast and so smooth I couldn't understand the horror stories I've heard. They made it pretty much stress free!!! - So much that they were all over the table at the time of closing. From the seller to the realtors to the title company every one was impressed by them and their smooth work. If you are thinking of buying a home please start with THE WYNN TEAM!!! They are by far the best I have ever seen. I give them the highest ranking of 5 stars and I highly recommend them. I am so thankful for them. I greatly appreciate all that you guys have done for me and my family. Thank you

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I just received my "Congrats" gift from The Wynn Team - a very thoughtful and fun care package. It was great! I have had a wonderful experience with The Wynn Team. Cindy and Jennifer have both done a great job of keeping me informed from the very beginning. I especially appreciate Cindy taking the time to explain the Mortgage Credit Certificate to me - twice (due to my own forgetfulness - not her lack of clarity). She always makes sure I understand what is happening with the loan, and has been available whenever I need her. Jennifer too, takes the time to explain thoroughly what is going on with my credit approval, the appraisal process, underwriting, etc. She has been extremely helpful (and patient with me) in keeping me updated every step of the way. I very much appreciate this - the more I understand, the less stressful the process is. I have had a few challenges arise with my process and both ladies have been very supportive and encouraging. I really appreciate their "bed side manner" if you will. They are both compassionate, patient women, and that makes makes a big difference! All in all, I have absolutely no complaints! Your team is awesome!

The Wynn Team is AMAZING! We got under contract on a house and the seller wanted us to close in less than 3 weeks. We were a little frazzled, but Scott, Joe, and Art were very reassuring. They were super organized, emailed us updates, called us with updates, called our realtor with updates, called the closing company with updates. They also got us a better loan than our credit unions could offer us. At no point did I have to call them with any questions because they were so clear about everything every step of the way. I can't praise them enough. I'm confident that no one else could've offered us the level of customer service and attention that they did.

Marla and her team did an exceptional job helping us obtain our mortgage. As first time homebuyers we were nervous about the process but Marla helped us each step of the way making it smooth and pleasant experience. She was always available to answer our questions which was key for us. It was great to have her at the closing and be excited for us! I highly recommend The Wynn Team to anyone who is looking to purchase a home, especially first time homebuyers. Thank you for a great experience Marla!

My realtors Loren, Karen and Kincaid Bimler of Your Castle Real Estate (303) 962-4272, are the best realtors on the planet. They care about their clients and go the extra mile to see that they find the home they are looking for. After having issues with my initial lender Loren referred me to The Wynn Team. They were professional and informative, but also understanding and made me feel very comfortable. They gave me more than enough information to make confident decisions and also gave me options that fit my life. In the end I owed nothing on the down payment and closing costs, and I was blown away. I highly recommend the Wynn Team and the Bimlers for your real estate needs.
