Rich and his team are excellent. He walked me through the process the entire way. It was reassuring to know I was in such competent hands as a first-time home buyer. I could not have done this without his vast knowledge of mortgage lending and the broad portfolio of lending products he made available to me. Simply put, Rich is the best! ... Read More

We were going to refinance through our current lender but I thought we could get a better rate. When I reached out to Rich he was able to get us a better rate, a better appraised value, a bigger loan amount and more cash out. Our situation was very complicated and he worked with us every step of the way to get it done. His staff was on top of everything and quick to respond and get things done. ... Read More

The loan took longer to approve than we thought, but that was mostly due to the Underwriter. Rich and his staff were always professional and the cost was very reasonable. Would definitely use them again.

I was very happy and impressed with the mortgage rate I received for my new home! Your office kept me informed and current in the various stages of the purchase requirements to have the loan funded. You promptly answered any questions and never pushed to make the deal but stressed that everything was my choice to move forward. I'd be happy to recommend you to my family and friends and even to strangers seeking mortgage services. ... Read More
