Heather Berghorst, Secretary of the National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) Regime and owner of Berghorst Enterprises and Heritage Home Solutions, is heading back to Court … again. Berghorst is most famous for her involvement with Altisource and vice versa with respect to the Mortgage Field Services Industry. Berghorst is also infamous for threatening to sue Foreclosurepedia under RICO Statutes in an apparent attempt to silence our reporting upon her failure to pay Contractors when she, in fact had been paid by Altisource. In a strange twist of fate, Altisource reinitiated business with Berghorst under her new Heritage Home Solutions. As Foreclosurepedia reported upon, Heritage Home Solutions was terminated on 29 October 2013 as a business entity.
Several of the hundreds of anticipated lawsuits against Heather Berghorst have begun to percolate through the judicial system. James Ulrich and Chad Wuchter have both filed lawsuits in the State of Wisconsin, so far.
Now, this is where the story becomes more and more concerning. What we know is that Berghorst Enterprises LLC was created on 29 June 2001 and bore signatures from Douglas and Heather Berghorst in the original formation. On 13 March 2013 Heather Berghorst created an Assumed Name of Heritage Home Solutions underneath Berghorst Enterprises LLC. On 29 October 2013 Heather Berghorst filed a Termination of Assumed Name for Heritage Home Solutions.
On 17 September 2013 Heather Berghorst created yet another Company, Berghorst SG LLC. Now, The Articles of Incorporation for Berghorst SG LLC lists an address of 593 Heritage Court, Holland, MI. The 2014 Annual Statement for Berghorst SG LLC lists an address of 3578 138th Street, Hamilton, MI. The former address is the identical address of Berghorst Enterprises LLC. The latter address is the residential address for Heather Berghorst.
Let’s take a look at the Companies being sued by Ulrich and Wuchter and their addresses,
Now, Altisource seems to be a common theme throughout the Berghorst Affair. What we know for a fact is that Altisource provided work to Berghorst Enterprises LLC during a period of time wherein Heather Berghorst refused to pay Contractors — why she refused is immaterial as she had already been paid herself. This is where the plot really, REALLY thickens. On 18 March 2014 Marce Wright, Berghorst Enterprises LLC Operations Manager sent out a letter to all current Berghorst LLC Contractors stating that Berghorst Enterprises LLC was changing its name to Heritage Home Solutions. Now remember, Heritage Home Solutions was terminated back on 29 October 2013. Wright also attached a Price Sheet reflecting Altisource as their Client,

So, Altisource is in quite a jam. They knew that Berghorst Enterprises LLC was not paying their Contractors under Altisource Work Orders and shut that pipeline down. Then, only a few months later, they open the pipeline back up. While Altisource may do business with whomever they want, the problem is that in the case of Heritage Home Solutions, Altisource did not perform Due Diligence. Make no mistake on this point. Whereas, outfits like Buczek Enterprises, yet another Altisource Black Hole upon which NO CONTRACTORS HAVE BEEN PAID TO DATE (contrary to information we were given), may do as they see fit, Altisource is a subsidiary of Ocwen whom is currently in a world of shit with the State of New York. We have not even begun to discuss the $400 Billion worth of Servicing Rights which Ocwen and Berkshire Hathaway may pick up for a paltry $5 Billion in the ResCap Bankruptcy!
Is Altisource going to do the just and honorable thing and finally cut its addiction to Berghorst? I don’t know. Why is Heather Berghorst spinning up companies using both her home address and current, taxpayer financed Berghorst Enterprises LLC Corporate Headquarters? One may only guess.
The final nail in the coffin for the NAMFS Regime is the fact that Heather Berghorst, the SECRETARY of the NAMFS Regime needs to be dismissed for Conduct Unbecoming of a Board Member. No two ways around it. Otherwise, the NAMFS Regime sets in stone the fact that it is committed to a pattern and practice of supporting fraud. By the way, what ever became of their Membership Chairman, Chuck Sockol? Can you hear me now, Eric Miller?!
