‘Foreclosure Angel’ saves another homeowner, featured on ABC-TV’s 20/20 last week


By J.J. Smith. Rockwall’s own “Foreclosure Angel” Marilyn Mock and family have saved another homeowner from losing her home to foreclosure – this time in Minnesota.

Mock, who with her husband, Bruce, co-owns the local family business, Classic Rock Stoneyard,  returned earlier this month with her daughter, Alyssa, from St. Cloud MN where their Foreclosure Angel Foundation came to the rescue of  Shirley Dvorak, paying off $30,000 in mortgage arrears and back taxes. 

Because of her efforts, Mock and her Foundation were once again featured on TV – this time June 19 on ABC’s 20/20 program. Click here to see the ”New Normal: Paying It Forward” video.

Mock first caught national attention last year when she attended a Dallas foreclosure auction, purchased a foreclosed home on the auction block in behalf of complete stranger Tracy Orr and sold it back to her for whatever payments she could afford- with no interest.

Since then, Mock has established her non-profit Foundation, raised an additional $65,000 from additional good-hearted donors and is currently investigating how they can help other homeowners in need. 

The Foundation now receives thousands of applications for help, which can be downloaded from the website. After the Foundation provides financial assistance, the Foundation applies whatever montly payments are received to help additional distressed homeowners.

Mock says she is also is seeking donations from more good-hearted people  who want to help homeowners to keep their homes. The contributions can be made online at their website.

According to Mock’s daughter, Alyssa, who co-founded Classic Rock with her mother, and who assists her with the Foundation, their second experience with helping the St. Cloud homeowner “was simply amazing.”
