Marilyn De Jesus

Meet the ACTS team!

You’ve stumbled upon an ACTS Team Member spotlight. These spotlights, published once a month, share what our team members do each day to make ACTS a success.

Meet Marilyn. Marilyn is often the first person you meet with or talk to when applying to become an ACTS home owner. She is  ACTS’ Housing Counseling Assistant. In other words, our “get it done” team member.

She refers to herself as a processor.

Daily, Marilyn can be found answering ACTS’ phone line, processing homeowner forms submitted in-person and online, credit reports, scheduling homebuyer appointments, packaging referral documents to submit to lenders, and when the buying process is all over, closing out the files.

Marilyn is ideally suited for the role.

Marilyn previously worked five years at SELECT Milwaukee, on the West side of Milwaukee, where she helped prepare families getting ready to purchase a home.

“I really enjoy helping families through the home buying process. A lot of times people believe they can’t purchase a home or don’t really know where to go,” De Jesus said.

In her spare time, Marilyn cares for her mother and travels. She recently accompanied family on a trip to Cuba.

“I wanted to see how Cuba really was,” she said.

We are grateful to have Marilyn on our team to keep things moving and processing!
