    Paula had an answer for every question I had, and the ones she didn't, she made sure to get one for me. As a first time homebuyer, the value of that is huge! She also made herself available to get a hold of just about any time of day which was great considering my work schedule. 10/10 would recommend.

    Paula is wonderful. I am a first time home buyer and she made the experience quick and smooth. Explained everything in detail so I knew how things worked. She genuinely seems to care for her clients and I would recommend her to everyone.

    I cannot stress enough what a positive experience it was working with Paula. She was responsive, informative, and professional from the moment I reached out, and remained so throughout the entire refinancing process. She also made herself available in real time in case I had any questions during closing. I would (and have) highly recommend Paula to anyone I know who is looking to buy a hone or refinance an existing mortgage.
