Katie ArnoldHome Ownership, Success Stories

HOMEOWNER AND SMALL BUSINESS OWNER

Katie Mack first came to Justine PETERSEN to purchase her dream home located in South City in 2003. Not yet quite ready for a home mortgage, Justine PETERSEN tailored a nuanced financing package that allowed Katie to purchase the home and ultimately refinance with a mainstream lender. Katie worked with a JP housing counselor to better her credit profile and obtain a competitive mortgage product. Along the way, the 17 years of home ownership have witnessed raising two boys among cats, dogs and chickens and realizing over $200k in equity. As a small business owner, her doula service welcomes over 40 babies into the world annually. In 2019, Katie accessed a small business loan through JP’s CDFI Great Rivers Community Capital.
