“Hello, Kevin!
Janet and I cannot thank everyone on your staff enough. We have bought and sold a few houses in our time and never before have we had such a professionally expeditious and enjoyable closing on a house. It was truly a Class Act. From the first day, everyone provided us with timely accurate information. We always felt like we were your only customer and everyone tended to our every need. This is not something you encounter often in today’s business environment. We will for sure recommend Homebridge to all of our friends, acquaintances and business associates in the future. You all are the best. Thanks again.”
– Leo

” Kevin and his staff were extremely helpful and efficient. I had contacted my three credit unions before my realtor got me in touch with Kevin. Kevin had committed to my loan before two of the three credit unions responded, and one of them didn’t approve the loan even though they held my previous mortgage. Feeling I was in good hands was especially important because I was 2000 miles away in my motor home and all my documents were in storage. Kevin and his staff went the extra mile to work with me and the electronic documentation I could provide.
Basically, Kevin got the deal done while the others were still fiddling around.”
-J James

“Outstanding job very professional and always on task. Tremendous asset working for you, would highly recommend Kevin and team to facilitate your needs in the purchase and closing of a home loan.”
J James
“Kevin and his staff were extremely helpful and efficient. I had contacted my three credit unions before my realtor got me in touch with Kevin. Kevin had committed to my loan before two of the three credit unions responded, and one of them didn't approve the loan even though they held my previous mortgage. Feeling I was in good hands was especially important because I was 2000 miles away in my motor home and all my documents were in storage. Kevin and his staff went the extra mile to work with me and the electronic documentation I could provide. Basically Kevin got the deal done while the others were still fiddling around.”
Leo
“Hello Kevin! Janet and I cannot thank everyone on your staff enough. We have bought and sold a few houses in our time and never before have we had such a professionally expeditious and enjoyable closing on a house. It was truly a Class Act. From the first day, everyone provided us with timely accurate information. We always felt like we were your only customer and everyone tended to our every need. This is not something you encounter often in today's business environment. We will for sure recommend Homebridge to all of our friends, acquaintances and business associates in the future. You all are the best. Thanks again.”
