    Shawn was extremely helpful and patient with me as a first time home buyer. What I appreciated most is that he was always accessible and quick to respond if I had any questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in search of a great loan officer.

    Shawn is simply amazing. We had put in total of 5 offers and lost the first 3, one which fit our budget and the second which was our dream home. We lost both and after the third one Shawn reached out to us and offered us guidance. After talking with ShWn we put in two more offers and won both using his advice. Shawn also went out of his way to give us his advice on finance and down payment. Everything Shawn said was really appreciated. We couldn't of won the house with Shawn, he truly is a valuable asset and brings a lot of experience to the table. He was always responsive and honest which is hard to find. Highly recommend Shawn as he made this difficult experience easier to deal with.

    We loved working with Shawn. He was very knowledgeable when it came to the ins and outs of our loan. Not only that, Shawn was easy to communicate with and we really appreciated feeling like we could reach out to him at any time. We would highly recommend Shawn to any of our friends and family.

    Shawn was very knowledgeable and helped us tremendously with helping us making a winning offer (better than a realtor) to get the house we put an offer on and also with going over finances and the best rate and loan, ect. He was a pleasure to work with and definitely would recommend to anyone we know.
