    Donna was always very responsive, knowledgeable and willing to talk me through whatever questions I had. I felt very secure having her take care of the financial details and explain to me what they all meant.

    Donna went above and beyond, answering (and re-answering!) tons of questions over the phone and in writing. She gently led us through every step of the process and seemed to be "on our side" regarding this momentous decision. She also provided some resources for a displaced tenant that were very helpful to that party. I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT DONNA! She will handle your transaction like you are her only customer, never too busy to reply. FULLY SATISFIED!

    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.
