“From the very beginning of the process Paul patiently, and sometimes repeatedly, explained each step of the process and the costs associated with the loan. He quickly provided multiple funding scenarios to help me determine which option I was most comfortable with. I really appreciated the time he took to walk me through each phase. He immediately gained my trust through his professionalism and expertise. I would highly recommend Paul Knebel to anyone looking for a trustworthy loan officer. Thank you Paul!”

“Paul is the only reason I used Homebridge. We used Paul for a previous home purchase when he was at a different company. We first came to Paul through a family recommendation and soon found out that he had a great reputation within the industry of mortgage financing. When it was time to look into possibly refinancing it was an obvious choice to go back to Paul. I trust Paul to take care of my loan through every step of the process. He always responds to calls or text messages very quickly. He always makes himself available after hours or weekends if I have questions. I do not expect this from him but it is appreciated. In my opinion he goes above and beyond and it is very apparent. I can really tell that he cares about his job and his customers. I honestly wouldn't feel comfortable using anyone else and I would probably follow Paul wherever he goes for my mortgage needs. I always recommend Paul to friends or family because I know he won't let them down. ”
