Real Estate Agent with Benchmark Realty TN 288457


As Morgan Stanley and other Wall Street Brokerage Houses regroup and reposition their mortgage portfolios the servicing end of their mortgage business continues to have a rough outlook. After announcing nationwide layoffs could be expected due to the economic determination in their mortgage business power house brokerage Morgan Stanly sent notice to the Texas Department of Labor saying it will lay off 100 employees in their Ft Worth Texas Service Center.

Saxon Mortgage Layoffs Hit Fort Worth

Kerri Panchuk | 02.29.08More than a week after Morgan Stanley announced layoffs within its residential mortgage platform, its lending subsidiary Saxon Mortgage Services was mentioned in a warn letter mailed to the Texas Workforce Commission to inform them of 100 job cuts at a Saxon facility in Fort Worth, Texas.

Earlier this month, Morgan Stanley announced layoffs within its residential mortgage lending operations due to current deterioration in the mortgage marketplace.

Saxon is now officially on the ropes. Another giant falling down. Maybe they should learn how to accept a few more short sales that allows the investors to become more liquid faster.

Saxon is NOT going under, they are cutting back. Since they are owned by Morgan Stanley they will be fine! Sucks for all the people that JUST lost there job in Fort Worth about 2 hours ago!

ARM victim

Has anyone had any luck in re negotiating terms of their bad ARM loans that were given out by Novastar mortgage? I just submitted my financial package to them and am waiting to hear word... Any info would be helpful...

Hi, please contact me at

You may have more recourse than you know! 

 I too had Novastar and they would not call back or answer questions then they sold the loan to Saxon.

My mother has been trying to get approval on a financial package for a hardship with Saxon for 6 months now. She had a heartattack and open heart surgery and is now 65 and cant work. I have moved in with her to keep her from going further behind but they keep sending letters demanding the 4 payments she didnt make while she was in the hospital and unable to get her SS check started. Anyone know the right people to contact there? email me at Thanks for ANY help you can provide. Sounds like this company is a real nightmare to deal with.
