Refinancing? Be aware of your alternatives
www.ocregister.com, 30 Sept 2001 [cached]
It doesn't hurt to ask for a modification," says Jim DuBose, president of Colonial Savings, a mortgage lender in Fort Worth, Texas.
Loan modification, DuBose says, is "pretty painless.We send them a couple of things to sign.It's not like going through another closing."He cautions, though, that it doesn't happen often because Colonial Savings, like most big lenders, sells most of its mortgage loans on the secondary market.In that case, you have to refinance the loan to get a lower rate.
If refinancing is your only option, don't automatically switch lenders.Shop first with your current loan servicer.It might offer you a "streamlined" refinancing, requiring less money, paperwork and time than other lenders require.
Colonial Companies: About Us
www.colonialsavings.com, 12 Dec 2007 [cached]
Returning from World War II, James S. DuBose founded Fort Worth Mortgage (now Colonial National Mortgage) in 1952 to provide residential home loans to the growing post-war communities of North Central Texas. A two-man shop grew steadily over the next 20 years, fueled by DuBose's enthusiasm and relentless focus on one goal: delivering the most competitive home loans with the most personal service.
In 1972, DuBose purchased Colonial Savings, a Savings & Loan located in Lewisville, Texas. He now had an expanded financial portfolio with which to operate and he took immediate action. After moving Colonial Savings to Fort Worth, he expanded the company to originate mortgages throughout the Southwest and beyond. At the same time, DuBose recognized the value of integrating the services he offered his customers. By offering banking, mortgages and insurance under one corporate roof, he gave his customers a more convenient method for handling their personal finances. The concept flourished.
In stark contrast to many financial institutions that failed during the 1980s, Colonial Savings thrived. Guided by a conservative approach and sound financial management, DuBose continued his focus on single-family home loans, personal banking and insurance services while others chased speculative opportunities. Colonial Savings emerged from the turbulent 80s stronger than ever, making James S. DuBose a legend in the financial industry.
News Release

With his 50-plus years in the mortgage business, the savings-and-loan business and the homeowners insurance business, Jimmy DuBose could be excused if he figured that he had seen it all.
Then came Texas' homeowners insurance fiasco.
DuBose is the force behind Colonial Savings, a $1.1 billion institution that survived the tumultuous 1980s, which saw scores of competitors fail. He also founded Colonial Mortgage, which turned 50 last year, and DuBose & Associates Insurance, which turns 50 this year.
...
Despite the unknowns, DuBose calls himself an optimist regarding the homeowners insurance market. "We think the business can be profitable," he says, as the policies concentrate on losses from accidents and weather, rather than maintenance-related water and mold damage.
