Welcome home Guzman family!

Jamie and Eva Guzman walked into our Modesto, CA branch in August 2021 hoping to learn more about Self-Help. After working with our mortgage team, they prequalified and began looking for their first home. They moved into their dream home in March 2022 and Eva shares: “Our home has made such a difference and we will be grateful to Self-Help for all of our life.” Congratulations to the Guzman family!
