Michael was easy to work with. He was clear and direct about what he needed, and offered advice and support, which I valued as a new homeowner. He is there to help you every step of the way.

Michael came out of the gate strong with prompt and knowledgeable responses to my inquiries. His commitment to ensuring a good process with a caring, personal touch is what separated him from the pack. I felt in good hands the entire time I worked through the loan process, and the upshot is that I closed on time, with no hidden expenses, and was treated like his #1 customer throughout. Great job, Michael!
