Luxury real estate brokers Warren & LaShawn Davis wish to do their part to make luxury homes attainable on Chicago’s south side – where they both grew up and currently reside.

How is this done?

By educating existing homeowners and renters on exactly how to improve their credit.

       • Homeowners will learn how to get funds to repair, improve, and go green.

       • Renters will learn how to purchase an affordable, luxuriously renovated home

         within their means to ensure sustainability, and often for less than the cost of

         renting that property. Also learn about Down Payment Assitance and a lot more.

Warren is a motivational speaker who became a credit expert during his 7 years as a mortgage lender. He is known for his ability to take the mystery out of the credit repair/improvement process. Positioning clients to guaranteed loan approval, whether refinancing for home improvement or purchasing a home. His unique style of making this usually complex information very simple and easy to understand lends to life-changing results.

LaShawn, once featured on HGTV’s “New Spaces”, works with developers to provide the homebuyer luxury and quality that is affordable. She is an education and community economic development adocate who believes the key to neighborhood revitalization is through knowledge.

Together they are an awesome team that provides extremely useful and workable knowledge in a fun and entertaining manner.
