The other day my lead generating service sent me people with a strong accent. I assumed they spoke Spanish even though the name was not Hispanic. I printed my flyers in Spanish and found a house buying guide in Spanish. Then I went to meet them.
They were late but they arrived. While I was trying to talk to them before they arrived I kept using my translator to Spanish with no good results. Eventually the English speaking child came on the phone and asked me to wait. They were refugees and they asked me if I spoke Swahili or French. I speak neither but the 15 year son spoke fairly good English. The father spoke some.
I want a loan officer who speaks Swahili. I want to make sure they understand what they are doing. I don't even know for sure what their financial status is. I do not know what country they come from. What I do know is that they want 2 places. One for them and one for mom. Their lease is up. Even if I can't sell them a place I would like to help them.
I called one refugee place and they said that the other refugee place had them as clients. I left a message and did not get a phone call back. Last evening I read the webpage more carefully and I hope to reach he person involved in housing.
