As a busy mom of three little ones, John's quick response to any question I had was a huge saving grace for me. My emails were answered most times in about 15 minutes or less!! I was also very impressed that I got a phone call from another member of the team to give me an additional point of contact in case I should need it. I never did, but knowing I was covered all around was great! We closed close to 30 days and I couldn't be happier with how smoothly everything went! I highly recommend John and HomeBridge!”

I highly recommend working with John on any mortgage needs!”

As a result, we were able to close in 30 days! We strongly recommend John and the team at HomeBridge!”
