Weichert Gold® Services Helps Smooth Homebuying Process

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. – It was just days before their scheduled closing when a couple buying their dream home through Weichert, Realtors® learned that their state-subsidized mortgage loan had fallen through.  


Rather than panic, they turned to a Weichert Gold® Services Manager from Weichert Financial Services. 


Driven by the desire to “never let the customer down,” the Weichert Gold Services Manager said that her determined team of mortgage underwriters and loan processors met the challenge, and the closing took place on schedule.  Afterwards, in a thank-you letter, the delighted couple – who also obtained their homeowners’ and title insurance policies through Weichert Gold Services – said they “now believe in miracles.” 


That kind of customer-focused teamwork illustrates why Weichert Gold Services is winning the praise of more and more home buyers every day.  Available through Weichert Financial Services, an affiliate of Weichert, Realtors, this popular one-stop shopping program can reliably take care of virtually every real estate-related need a consumer may have, including mortgage financing, homeowners’ and title insurance, a home protection plan, and an expanding array of home-connections services, from moving services to connecting utilities.   Importantly, there is no extra charge for using Weichert Gold Services beyond the actual cost of the product or service.


Stephen Adamo, president of Weichert Financial Services, said, “Today’s time-pressured buyers want convenience and minimal hassle.  And given all that’s involved in moving, they want to be able to count on closing on their home purchase as scheduled.  The Weichert Gold Services program speaks to those needs as a vital component of the Weichert value proposition.”


To ensure peace of mind, qualified home buyers who take advantage of all three “core” services of the Gold Services program – namely, mortgage financing, homeowner’s insurance, and title insurance – enjoy a guaranteed closing date.  A  $5,000 Performance Guarantee from Weichert Financial Services backs that commitment.  Since the inception of the $5,000 guarantee, closings that have qualified for the program have met closing schedules 100 percent of the time.


Weichert Gold Services is, in effect, an extension and enhancement of the personal service provided by Weichert.  As the Weichert, Realtors sales associate guides the buyer step by step through the home finding and purchase process, the Weichert Gold Services Manager from Weichert Financial Services can facilitate each stage, typically starting with a pre-purchase mortgage credit approval that enables qualified buyers to shop with confidence.


Once the Weichert, Realtors sales associate helps the buyer successfully bid on a home, the Weichert Gold Services Manager can prove invaluable in securing the right financing.  Because Weichert Financial Services offers more than 300 different mortgage products, buyers can conveniently comparison-shop in one place, with the Weichert Gold Services Manager advising on the pluses and potential downsides of available mortgage options.  


Similarly, buyers utilizing Weichert Gold Services can comparison-shop and obtain their homeowners’ insurance through the program as well, calling upon Weichert Insurance Agency, Inc., an independent insurance broker, to select from the offerings of more than a dozen different insurance companies.


Prospective buyers interested in the Weichert Gold Services program are invited to contact their neighborhood Weichert, Realtors office or Weichert Financial Services to arrange a personal meeting with a Weichert Gold Services Manager.   


Weichert Financial Services is one of the “Top 50” lenders in the U.S., according to the industry newsletter “Inside Mortgage Finance,” based upon sales to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the first quarter of 2007.
