“Andy Taylor was very attentive and supportive throughout this entire process of acquiring a home loan. As a first time home buyer I was very appreciative of the extra time he took to communicate and walk me through this process.

Vince R. Nov-21
“Andy was terrific from the beginning to end of the process. We had visited Andy about a year ago to inquire about re-financing our home. He was very helpful in explaining how we were not in an ideal position to re-finance at that time. He advised us at that time to wait a year to get our credit scores up a bit and see if the market improved. This turned out to be excellent advice. Once we got the process started, we were able to easily upload documents and e-sign many of the documents through the Homebridge website. We were financed within a month and are very happy with the overall process. Both Andy and the other Homebridge representatives were available and happy to answer any questions to expedite the process.”

“As a Black person, I had a lot of anxiety and apprehension about the home buying and mortgage process. I'm well aware of the challenges Blacks have had with getting financed or even falling prey to predatory lenders. So, I was very skeptical and tentative going into the process. Andy was incredible from start to finish. He helped me establish a goal for saving and meeting my financial milestones during the process. He answered all of my questions, some of them multiple times. He emailed and followed up with phones and texts. He checked in with at every phase of the process. He explained to me what I should expect at each phase. He even talked me down a couple of times. I truly appreciate his patience, kindness, thoughtfulness, and transparency. For these reasons, I will always refer him to people looking to purchase a home.”

He answered all our questions thoroughly and promptly...and there were many questions as this was my first home purchase. His explanations were always clear and concise, his advice obviously given with our best interests at heart. I moved into my new house in December and couldn't have done it without Andy.
