Carin made the process of getting loan extremely simple. As a first time home buyer, she was more than willing to answer any questions that I had and explained things in terms that were easy to understand.

Closed purchase loan. Elmhurst, IL

Carin was an absolute pleasure to work with. This was the first house my wife and I have bought. We were unfamiliar with the process and skeptical of anything and everyone. Purchasing a home is such a large investment and we wanted to do our best to protect the investment and make wise decisions with our money. Carin walked us through the entire process, went over every document and even met with us after hours. We purchased a short sale, so the process took about 8 months. Carin kept in contact the entire time and would answer all of our calls and emails as quickly as possible. We highly recommend Carin Buchanan to anyone, especially first time home buyers who will greatly benefit from Carin's knowledge and patience.

Carin makes the painful process of re-financing simple and painless. Her knowledge of the industry is second to none. She's creative and develops multiple options. I wouldn't work with anyone else!

I enjoyed working with Carin for my mortgage loan. I am a first time home owner and Carin was very responsive, helpful, and knowledgeable. She made my first time loan experience not as scary as I thought it would be.

As a first-time home buyer, I have received great help from Carin in the loan application process. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of the process and always gets back to us very quickly when we have questions, even during diner time. She was the first person we contacted through Zillow and we have worked together on our home buying till closing. Carin is also very responsible and always kindly reminds us regarding any deadlines and paperwork to be done. She knows very well it is very important to keep an inexperienced home buyer up to date, and she did everything to make the process as smooth as possible for us. I would 100% recommend Carin to anyone who needs advice and help in loan application.

My husband and I have worked with Carin for years. She's very knowledgable and helpful when it comes to all the financial choices there are to make with a home sale/purchase or personal financial business. She is always able to quickly answer all of our questions and guide us in the right direction. She even makes house calls!
