Michele is professional, diligent, available, and a very pleasant person to work with. Thanks to her efforts the loan process was seamless. If something is needed she gets it taken care of immediately. So good to have this refinance behind me. Thanks Michele!

I felt that Michele was always on top of every action that came along and was very informative and had great advice and instinct. She ultimately was able to get us a really low rate as promised. I know rates are not in our control but I trusted her judgement and am happy with floating our rate and locking when we wanted. The stars really aligned with this home purchase and I really owe Michele and embrace a ton of gratitude for all of their hard work and vigilance. Thank you Michele!
