    Donna is a great person, made it very easy to get through a process I knew very little about at the time. She kept me up to date and informed. Made it a GREAT experience.

    Donna went above and beyond in making the painful process of applying for a loan. The rules seem to keep changing and she is on top of every one of them. She is a pleasure to work with (and has a good sense of humor as well).

    I was very impressed with the extra effort to make sure all necessary documents were submitted when the online attempts were unsuccessful. The communication to keep me informed was exemplary. Realizing I was a relative neophyte in the process, Donna was most patient and thorough. Thankful she was my ‘person’ in this process! Thanks Donna, you’re THE BEST!
