Eric and Abby B. Testimonial

Jim and his team provided excellent service during our refinancing. At times the re-fi process can seem overwhelming. However, we were very appreciative of Jim’s patience and his communication with us throughout the process. He was very responsive and concerned that our needs were met. Everything was completed as anticipated and there were no surprises. Obtaining or refinancing a home loan has become a very sophisticated process and I definitely recommend Jim and his team.
