Mary Jo was very responsive and made sure everything was right and comfortable for me. As a first time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions and she didn't make me feel out of the loop and was happy to answer each question, no matter how big or small. She was always available any time I called and she walked me through the process and made it as smooth as possible. I would definitely work with her again!

Mary was stellar! She is very accessible. She works long days and answers her cell phone even into the evening hours. She was able to get my loan processed from the application step to clear-to-close in about 1.5 weeks! Truly amazing. Her staff is also great to work with and always answers the phone and always follows up promptly! There is no hesitation in recommending her to my friends and I already have! Thanks, Mary!
