If I could give ten stars, I would. I couldn't ask for a better lender and now friend. Due to Shawn's knowledge and quick response time, my transaction went smoothly. I also love the ease of embraced home loan tools. The application they use was a secured application and easy to navigate and allowed me to upload the required documents with little to no effort. Thank you for making this an easy and fun process. Robin

From the first introduction I knew I would be good with Shawn. He is very responsive and took the time to make sure I understood entire process for my particular circumstances. I never felt rushed or pressured at all. He gave sound advice and took extra steps to know that I was comfortable with everything. He even celebrated closing with me and gave me a nice gift, which was unexpected yet awesome!

There are a few shelves here and there, but as far as organization goes, the real work is up to you (and your wallet). Are you looking for ways to better organize your…
