Mr. Ramos, who has worked with home mortgages for over 15 years, started helping people modify their home loans 5 years ago, and hasn't stopped since. With over 5,000 mortgage modifications under his belt, Mr. Ramos is recognized as one of the world's foremost experts in home loan modification, and he continues to help people save their homes as Operations Manager at Amerihope Alliance Legal Services, a law firm that concentrates on foreclosure defense.
