Paula was always available for questions and responded to all inquiries almost immediately. She helped make complex terms and unfamiliar items make sense, for someone buying their first house. I would recommend her to friends and family without a doubt. I really enjoyed working with her!

Paula is amazing to work with. She was quick to respond to any questions. She was very knowledgeable and expedited all the bank forms. She also has a wonderful personality and sense of humor which really made what could have been a stressful time, easy. I would so highly recommend her. So glad she will still be available for us when we have questions or concerns
