While there were some issues with overpaying for an interest rate lock, the issue was very quickly corrected. Also, the ability to become a cash buyer without a fee is certainly something that separates them from other mortgage lenders. Their efficiency and care towards me throughout the entire homebuying process was very welcoming and allowed for a relatively smooth experience.

Every step of the way, Chris and his staff let me know what was going on and explained everything. If I had a question, they were very prompt in answering. Absolutely a painless experience. Chris went over all the numbers in detail so I knew where they came from and what they were for. He estimated the final closing costs very accurately -- NO SURPRISES!!!! I truly felt I was their only client they took such good care of me.

Chris was very active in communicating with me what the process and timeline were for various deadlines. He worked with me and took extra time to explain the loan terms and how my payment would change with differing interest rates and downpayment amounts.
