I shopped around, and out of the 8 lenders I was in contact with Scott answered all of my questions with the most candor and forthrightness. He and his team (Hey Lisa!) are also the most available, and responsive lenders I have ever worked with (I have bought 5, and sold 4 homes). Any question you have Scott will take the time to explain it until he's sure you understand, and while he's explaining it you get a sense of the Man's integrity.
