Helping Lenders & Homeowners Succeed

Pre-Purchase Counseling   

Buying a home presents challenges for purchasers and lenders alike. Our services assist homeowners…and lenders too.

With our pre- and post-purchase financial counseling for first time homebuyers, lenders

and other banking institutions have chosen to partner with us to help homeowners navigate the process more easily, while simultaneously helping lenders focus their time and energy on working with pre-qualified individuals.


The NHN Counseling Connection (NCC) is a telephone-based counseling center where each phone counselor is trained to help assess the consumer’s individual situation, answer questions, address concerns, and establish a plan to become a successful homebuyer. In addition to providing services over the phone, NCC counselors can assist consumers by connecting them with a local nonprofit housing counseling agency for in-person assistance if they prefer.

How Lenders Benefit:

− Opportunity to take your existing leads lists

   and have them vetted giving you

   pre-qualified individuals.


− Receive additional leads that come in to the

   NCC telephone line as one of our partners.


− Never say no…. refer clients that are not

   ready and we can get them ready for you

   over time, allowing you to maintain a

   relationship and a pipeline of leads that

   may return ready for homeownership.


− Reduced risk of mortgage default for

   referred borrowers.


− Increase efficiency in the lending process,

   as the NCC helps the individual buyer not

   only navigate the process but collect proper

   support documentation.
