“Matthew did a great job and was very easy to deal with. The only hiccup was my paperwork from the county showing tax exemption for being a disabled veteran and getting it fixed on the day of closing but he did a great job getting it taken care of. I have already recommended him to a few coworkers that are in the process of refinancing with other companies and are interested in switching to you guys.”

“Matthew along with Chris were great to work with and kept me informed every step of the way. Being a business owner the process was MUCH more complicated especially with COVID and the entire team was good about requesting additional information in a timely manner and not waiting until the last minute. It was a painful process but the team made it as enjoyable as they could. We came in from out of town for the closing and everything went off without a hitch and was very well coordinated by Matthew along with my real estate agent.”
