“I am not good with numbers but i think that the loan counseling will save my husband and i somewhere between 40 to $70,000 (and apx $80 to $300 a month). The student loan counseling honestly is a miracle, because dealing with student loans over the last several years has been one of the most stressful and confusing things my husband and I have ever had to try and figure out. Thank you Joanne for helping us finally find the right solution for what felt like a no win situation at times. It is the biggest relief to for the first time have our student loan debt go into good standing and now we can fix our credit and have the chance to eventually buy a house etc. We would not have been able to do this on our own. Thank God DevNW has this counseling available for people. Thank you again times a million Joanne and DevNW.”
