“Good communication and great updates with the progress of my loan! Darnell let me know that she was available for any questions and she responded to emails very promptly! Despite being away and under the weather at the time of my loan process, Darnell ensured that I understood what was going on and what to expect once I started the loan process! Very professional and great person to work with!”
Rosanne P. Mar-22
“Being a first time home buyer, I was very nervous, sometimes hesitant and very unaware of the entire process. Darnell and her team kept me updated constantly and was always available to answer my questions. I felt very comfortable speaking to Darnell. I am very grateful for her and her team's knowledge, experience, responsiveness and care. Thank you.”

Brandi K. Sep-21
“Darnell was great to work with as a first time home buyer. She explained the process to me in detail and was always available to answer my questions. Darnell offered to provide me with specific financing estimates on homes that I put offers in for prior to the contracts being singed which helped me understand the estimated financing for each property including HOAs (I submitted a total of seven offers on seven different properties with the seventh being my accepted offer and final home). Darnell was always available via email and text and answered no more than a few hours. In today's market, it was critical to be strong in the offer and Darnell's financing letter was one of the major components that allowed me to win my final offer! I appreciated the advisory and care that Darnell took with me and would definitely recommend her to friends and family.”

“I never thought I would have the ability to purchase a home here in Hawaii especially during the pandemic and in the current housing climate. The process seemed daunting, but Darnell was very accessible and answered all my crazy questions and concerns in a quick and easy to understand way. She was very supportive through this first time experience for me, and I am truly grateful for her continued support and especially with her willingness to work with my schedule. Words can not truly explain how happy I am to have worked with Darnell and her support team, it made a dream come true for me and I am incredibly appreciative that she was part of my home ownership journey!

Amanda K. Apr-21
“Simply put, Darnell Souza was amazing. We worked with her for months on our difficult buyout-refinance situation. This was the first time my husband and I had to go through a process like this and Darnell was patient, flexible, and most importantly informative. She always took time to explain things clearly to make sure we understood. She always responded promptly to my questions and was so gracious when I felt I needed more guidance or explanation. Darnell was an excellent advisor who helped us navigate a stressful and complicated situation seamlessly. I have already recommended her and Homebridge Services because of the excellent service we received from Darnell. Anytime we refinance or need assistance home finances, Darnell will be who we call first.”

“Darnell was fantastic through our entire process. Professional with still that local touch that we appreciate!! Couldn't imagine working with anyone else.”
Rudy P. April-19
“Darnell Souza is a star in your rankings, and should be promoted to a position of teaching others how best to work with clients. Once she was introduced, no other team member should be in touch, to prevent further confusing an already chaotic process to those who haven't bought/sold a house in over thirty years. My adult children and I will certainly call Darnell for our upcoming other home loan needs, whomever she represents.”
