We cannot say enough wonderful things about Michael Ballew and his team. Everyone tells horror stories about the mortgage process, so we were not looking forward to the whole ordeal, but our experience was completely opposite! Mike, Sarah and Casey were all amazing! They were incredibly friendly and beyond helpful. We received weekly updates on a regular basis and timely answers to any questions we had. We truly believe that, without Michael and his team, we would not be in our own home now. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Michael Ballew and his team.
