We are so pleased with the level of service we received. Jason met with Brian and I numerous times to answer questions, review loan terms and explain the loan process. He was extremely proactive and made the loan approval process very seamless for us. Jason had to complete our loan in an extremely short time-frame which he was able to do. He did a great job of managing all involved parties and leading the charge to get our closing completed on time
You were so easy to get a hold of and always answered our calls and emails instantly! No short order considering how many questions and concerns we had on a regular basis. We know that our situation was abnormal, but closing us in less than 15 days in this market was incredible! Our Realtor keeps telling us that this is NOT how it works and without you we would never have our home, again thank you. You were wonderful, and it has been a pleasure dealing with you. In fact not only did you find us the cheapest loan around but you also gave us advice on what kind of loan to go with! Keep up the good work, you better believe we will be sending everyone we can your way!
