“There is Prejudice and it is up to All of Us to Help Stamp it OUT”  

 

Mr. Petrowsky,

Your name was given to me by my two aunts. They have both told me that you helped them obtain financing to purchase their home. They both indicated you helped them when no one was very interested in helping them obtain financing for a mortgage.

I am a little gun shy as we are all from Jamaica and speak with an accent. I know that based on what they shared, I shouldn’t be concerned, so can you help me as well.

 

It is easy for most of us to say that prejudice doesn’t exist in this country, but we would be kidding ourselves. I know what prejudice looks like and my responsibility to do all that I can to stamp it out!

Good morning Joe. Financial qualifications are all that matter. That is the test. And a good mortgage broker knows which paths to follow. Enjoy your day

I agree with you Joe that prejudice still exists in our Country. I have experienced it first hand!
