I began my journey of debt elimination with Elite in the Spring of 2008. I had approximately $7,000 in credit card debt which was not enough for most debt solutions companies but Elite financial was more than willing to help me resolve my credit card debt. I was a single mother when I started out and I didn't have much money to spare after taking care of my monthly bills. The staff at Elite took all of my financial information and helped me find a payment that would fit my budget and not leave me broke at end of each money. At first I was really scared because I had heard the horror stories of people paying debt solution/consolidation companies month after month only to find that the company wasn't doing anything to resolve their debt so I made it a point to keep track of what was going on with my account. Much to my relief I received monthly (some times twice a month) phone calls from my financial advisor, letting me what was going and inquiring if I had any creditors calling or mailing me for payments or offering settlements. I still remember the day she called to tell me my first account which was about $5,000 was settled for a little over $900. I cried and laughed with excitement because it had only been a few months into the program. Not long after this settlement and just over a year of being in the program, I received a call from a new financial advisor, that my last two accounts had been settled for only $479! I was in shock for a moment then the tears of joy and relief came (and I'm crying now as I write). It's a moment in my life I will always remember because for once in years I was not stressed or worried about the phone ringing and someone on the other demanding a payment which I didn't have. I can go to the mailbox and not worry that there will a "threat" for legal action if payment is not received. The staff, no that's an understatement, my friends at Elite Financial Services gave me back something I lost years ago when my credit card debt entered my life and that's my peace of mind. I cannot truly put into words the gratitude and love I have everyone at Elite that has given me back my life. Thank you all so very much. I highly recommend Elite Financial Services to anyone who finds themselves in any financial debt situation because this is truly a company of its word!!!

Old post but worthy of this statement. Just Because this supposedly above board company got your debt settled doesn't mean its clean. Did the creditor agree to not re-sell your debt difference? What letter did you receive to "assure" that they didn't sell it to a third party debt buyer? What assurance do you have that no further legal action is going to transpire on your accounts. I do not think you have a clue of how debt settlements can haunt you. Short of a judge proclaiming you are no longer liable, that debt can re-surface at any time. Why pay a business to do what you should have done from the get go...Educate yourself on how to reduce the overall amount due and get the final agreement in writing. I mean this to not be harsh, but rather to be realistic and let others not befall the path you chose. A Paid in full with no further rights to resell the difference is the key!

I was very hesitant about joining a debt settlement company. The representative I originally spoke with was very confident that they could help me reduce my debt by 50%. I decided to give it a try and I was very pleased with the outcome. My personal account representative, Denise Gomes, was awesome. She was very knowledgeable in her job and always kept me updated. I had over $6,000.00 in debt and she was able to get it down to half of that. I'm very appreciative of her help. I would most certainly consider using their services again if ever needed as well as recommend them to any friends or family.
