My husband and I decided to try and buy our first home in June. We were renting an old house that needed a lot of work. We also have a very young daughter, so it was very important to get a safer place for her. I saw a post about a "rent to own" home in our area. I called the number listed, which happened to be Jerry's contact info. I explained that we had contacted a local bank and were told that my husband's credit score was off by 1 point to qualify for their mortgage loans! So, we were looking for the rent to own option because I, personally, really wanted to BUY something. He took all of my info and explained that he really thought he could help us BUY. He told me to contact Platinum Mortgage in Athens, and speak with Sherry. I did. The rest is pretty much history! We closed on our gorgeous home in September!
