Patrick Chicklinski was recommended by our real estate agent after we decided to purchase a home. Performing my due diligence, I had researched MANY lenders. This included my personal bank (which I've used for previous home purchases), other local banks, online lenders, and a consultation with a personal friend in the mortgage industry. I made the simple decision to go with Patrick due to the ease of communication, his knowledge of the industry, and his professionalism. He provided a list of everything we would need for our loan, answered every question we had during the process, and would keep us up-to-date on the status even after hours. The peace of mind of staying local is a huge bonus!
