What Our Customers Say About Me

Wes and Michelle Matlock - Managing Editor and School Social Worker
“As first-time homebuyers, we could not have asked for a better loan officer than Jody Tiedeman. Not only did she make the process easy to understand, but she also helped kick the tires and get us moving in the right direction. Jody had answers to all of our questions, and she was available to help in person, on the phone, or even with a quick text message. If and when we need help again, she'll be the first person we call.”
Sai Chang
“Buying my first home, Jody was there every step of the way! She made a very complicated process easy to understand and helped in finding the best possible loan to meet my needs. She went above and beyond in helping minimize my closing costs saving tons of $$$$$$! I would highly suggest her to anyone purchasing a property!”
Alicia Wasson - First time homebuyer
“We were quite anxious being first time home buyers and building at that. Because we were building within a development it was a long journey and Jody was there the entire 7 months holding our hand. She promptly answered all of our questions and then some. I felt like she truly supported us and our dream. My husband and I highly recommend Jody, she truly is a pleasure to work with. ”
Phoebe Pang - Field Technician
“Best home buying experience ever! Jody is super responsive and gets things done quick. Jody recently picked up my case after a previous terrible experience I had with another loan officer. I was afraid I was going to fall off track with my progress and would have to start all over. To my surprise, Jody was immediately caught up to speed with my case and was able to land me an awesome loan (and interest rate). Jody is was so sweet on the phone and was so reassuring. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for the next best mortgage consultant! ”
Leon Fornelli
“Jody is incredible! She was right there to answer all of my questions and assist in getting everything processed quickly so we could close on our home before the holidays! I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with to get my loan processed! I would highly recommend Jody Tiedman to anyone buying a home!”
Rachel Burns - Data Analyst
“Jody was amazing! As a first time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions and Jody was always courteous and incredibly quick to respond. I also love that she worked with me through the holiday season to make sure my loan fit my needs. I can't recommend Jody enough. ”
Courtney Taylor
“Jody was our loan officer for our first home, and let me say: she is just wonderful. From start to finish she was not only informative, professional, and helpful, she was also personable, understanding, and caring. She took the time to understand our needs, and walked with us throughout the whole process. She’s the kind of person you want in your corner when making what likely is one of the biggest purchases of your life. I recommend her 1000%! Thanks again, Jody!”
Tracy Swartzmiller - New Homeowner
“When buying our first home, we couldn't have picked a better mortgage lender than Jody. She was always in contact with us and was very honest, upfront, on what our chances were to secure a loan. When underwriting needed something for verification, she was right on top of it. When we were approved, she was as excited as we were and because of her, we were able to close in as little as 23 days!! We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Jody because we would not be homeowners without her. I recommend Jody to anyone who is looking for that one lender who always has your back, who doesn't treat you as just a loan number and who will do everything in her power to get you approved.”
THEODORE INOUYE
