This is what a man with nearly perfect credit looks like10/26/2012
We've always wondered, and now we know: This is what a man with a credit score of 848 -- out of a possible 850 -- looks like. (One credit bureau informed Tom Pavelka that he has better credit than "100%" of the population, which is pretty easy to believe given the financial carnage of the last five years). As to the habits and habitat of this extremely endangered species: Pavelka lives with his wife, an Austrian immigrant, in Westlake, Ohio, with seven cars (though they carpool to work) and a 65-inch TV (but no high-def). Pavelka credits (cough) his success to a reluctance to overspend and modest tastes, such as his local vacation favorites: "Pittsburgh's very eclectic Mattress Factory Art Museum is must-do," he says.
