    In hindsight, the initial application process was easy and Donna helped very much in obtaining the correct information for the loan approval. It was confusing at times to understand the Fannie Mae and title requirements. We needed to take additional time to determine the purchase price, I did feel pressure to obtain information very quickly and do some last minutes updates to the home, But, I do understand because of the raising rates; it was all in our best interest. The day of the closing was very smooth. We thank Donna for her assistance and we would work with her again.

As more and more Baby Boomers age in place and existing homeowners stay in their homes longer (an average of 23 years in some cities!),…
