Customer Reviews




Rick is very professional, our home purchase could not have been a better experience!!! Rick was always on top of getting us any information that we needed throughout the entire process, and was always there if I had any questions or concerns.

Best Loan Process Ever

"From the time I started my loan til the money landed in my account was fantastic. Rick had a lsit of what I would need to make the transaction roll fast. At signing the title lady was very impressed with the paperwork provided that they didn't have to meet me again to write a check, and I was aware of all the papers I was signing. Rick's group provided me with the information I needed and the whole transaction was easy and fast. The speed of return answers and calls about timeframes was very helpful."

Great help for a 1st time home buyer

"Friendly, personable and easy to get in contact with. Knowledgable and willing to answer all questions asked. I was a first time home buyer and Rick was able to help me understand all aspects of the home buying process. Although we couldn't meet face to face because we were in different states, Rick was always available by phone or email."
