Lou was very courteous, professional, and helpful. He understands how involved the mortgage process can be for borrowers and takes out most of the headaches.

Lou provided outstanding costumer service. He was very helpful and stayed on top of everything we needed to complete in order to be approved. I was a first time homebuyer, for my husband his second time. Lou explained everything to me that I didn’t understand and never made me feel like I was inconveniencing him when I was asking questions. He is very pleasant and easy to talk to. I would recommend him to anyone who is buying a home!
