For being a first time home buyer the experience with Chip was great. Everything was done online from my home with Chip only a phone call away. I knew my status on the loan the whole way through the process. The process was easy to follow without having to run to the bank on several occasions. I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy a new home to contact Chip and Embrace homes.

Chip did a great job. Anytime I called with a question he either had the answer or got back quickly with it.
