I_am_focused_picI would like to take the opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate all of Linda Fox’s assistance with the recent purchase of my home. Linda was very attentive and kept me informed along the way. Linda was able to make an otherwise arduous task, easy. I will definitely recommend Avenue Mortgage and specifically Linda Fox to any prospective home buyers seeking a mortgage.

mark_twain_I_can_live_for_two_monthsDear Linda,
We are delighted to recommend your services to any prospective homebuyer. You were very easy to work with and explained the mortgage process to us in a manner that made it easy to understand. You listened to all of our questions and responded in a timely manner. You helped us stay on top of things and followed up if you needed any additional information or documents. The most important thing for us was that you helped us stay within our budged and did not push us to overextend on our monthly budget. You have even been helpful after the closing date with any additional follow up questions. You made us feel at ease and coached us along the way. We hope future clients have the same experience we had.

I loved working with this first time home buying couple. The best part? Watching them get the keys to their new home (yes! I attend all of my closings).

I will ride high on this sweet Letter of Recommendation for the next few days!

keusIt is my pleasure to highly recommend Ms. Linda Fox for her excellent mortgage brokering services. I recently (July 2013) had her assist me in getting a mortgage, and I couldn’t be happier with the service.

Linda was extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process. She informed me of different loan options I could avail of, their pros and cons, and worked with some significant constraints I had in terms of choosing an end lender. She communicated very clearly and in a timely manner, and was very responsive regardless of the time of day or week. I always felt like Linda had my best interests in mind, and I never tried to push something that wasn’t a good fit for my needs.

As a result of Linda’s assistance, I was able to close my home purchase on time and received a rate I was very happy with. I would be happy to work with Linda again, and would highly recommend her to any of my friends looking to purchase a house or refinance.

A very thoughtful Letter of Recommendation…

keysI have been a sheriff for 36 years and met Linda Fox while I was going through turmoil and a tense time trying to get a loan from another company. She really came through for me. She walked me through every part of the loan process and made an arduous situation gratifying.

At the closing, Linda was the utmost professional and yet made it an enjoyable experience. She went above and beyond. It was an easy transition and it was due to Linda, who took the time out for the little details. And, to this day, I can pick up the phone to call Linda to address any questions or concerns. She is always there, friendly, and thoughtful.

I can’t stress enough, if you need a loan, Linda is the person for you. Why you would go anywhere else is beyond me.

Sincerely yours, Robert

I was recently in the positioavenue_universtiyn where it made sense for me to refinance. My first instinct was to reach out to a national/well known firm to assist me with this process. While in the beginning stages, with this firm I was highly referred to Linda Fox with Avenue Mortgage. I have to say from my initial phone conversation until the day I closed it was a pleasure to work with Linda. Not only was Linda able to lock in substantially lower rate, but financially I would have been remiss not to have gone through this process with Linda! Also, Linda spent the time to explain the entire process and paperwork with me to ensure I understood what I was signing. Her communication skills and follow-up skills are impeccable.
I would highly recommend working with Linda Fox for any/all aspects of your mortgage needs. Linda is knowledgeable, eager, and very pleasant to work with.

From a Thrilled Repeat Customer…

It is our great pleasure to recommend Linda Fox to you.

We had been clients of another broker at Avenue Mortgage for many years. Linda took over our account in 2011, and as interest rates fell and then fell again, we refinanced our home loan twice with Linda.

Linda is a consummate professional, incorporating warmth and humor with efficiency and drive. She worked to find us the best rates and loans possible. Her communication with us has always been clear and direct. Her attention to detail is superb. Closings were scheduled at times convenient to our complex professional and family lives. She and her support staff made the complex work of mortgage refinancing easy for us.

We have recommended Linda to our closest friends and family (who have been similarly impressed), and we are happy to recommend her to you.

Buying a Home Won’t Get Much Cheaper By CNNMoney | Posted May 3rd 2012 1:02PM

Buying a home may never get any cheaper than this. Several housing experts are predicting that this year will be the last chance for bargain hunters to cash in on the best deals of the weak housing market.

With home prices down 34% nationally since 2006 and mortgage rates at historic lows, homes have never been more affordable — but it won’t stay this way for much longer.

Stuart Hoffman, chief economist for PNC Financial Services, said he expects home prices to flatten out by the third quarter and start climbing by next year.

A number of factors will help bolster the housing market, he said, including a decline in the number of foreclosures and continued job growth. In addition, homebuyers will have better access to mortgages as they get their finances in order and improve their credit scores.

“This is a strong indicator that we will start seeing home price indexes, like the S&P/Case-Shiller, start to report home price increases this summer,” he said.

Prospective homebuyers who’ve been sitting on the fence shouldn’t worry if they aren’t quite ready to make the leap. Analysts are predicting that the initial price gains will be modest, at least, in most markets.
