Dave and his staff were always there to explain any questions we had and even if we asked the same question over and over. We really felt that Dave was in our corner getting us the best rate and deal.

My wife and I just purchased our home in Blacksburg. The mortgage process was smooth,no surprises,no drama. This is not an easy task anytime, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, this was an exceptional accomplishment. Dave and his Team at Embrace are certainly recommended !

When I first applied for pre-approval I was denied due to somethings on my credit report. Dave gave me some good advice on how to fix the issue. i took his advice and ran with it, in less then 2 months I was approved. During the whole process start to finish, Dave and Traci were awesome. We gave them what they ask for and they did the rest. This was a very pleasant, and joyful experience with buying our new home. Highly recommend Dave, Traci, & Embrace Home Loans if you are looking to purchase.
