“When life brings you challenges, talk to Jeff! As a first-time home buyer going through a stressful process with a few bumps in the road, Jeff made it feel almost stress-free. Just when I thought things were going to go downhill, Jeff took me off that ledge and made it happen! I thank Jeff For all his hard work and perseverance, ambition, and the friendly service I received in getting this loan… Working with this loan officer helped me realize the American dream is possible, challenges can be overcome, and you can do anything you want! Many blessings to Jeff and his staff and thank you for making my dreams come true!”  -Melissa M.

“I started the refinance process with Jeffery in July, and I thought it would be an easy process, but my mortgage co. was a nightmare refusing to send needed letters, and documents or correct their misinformation. Jeffery stepped in to help me straighten out their mistakes. He never gave up when he was told that I couldn’t refinance for another three months. He was able to turn a no into a yes. If you want someone who will fight for you every step of the way, it’s Jeffery. If you want a knowledgeable person, it’s Jeffery. I closed in October with a much lower interest rate. Thank you.”  -Lilly N.

“Jeff was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of our interaction. Whenever we had concerns, he was easily able to put our minds at ease. We recommend him to anyone looking for the best in the business. He truly was awesome.”  -Joe F.
