When we began this journey of owning our home, I contacted 3 lenders who were "approved lenders for USDA Guaranteed Loan Program". I received no call back or email reply from any of them and I was ready to close the book on that journey. During my research I kept seeing George's name popping up answering questions that people had about USDA $0 down loans. I saw a lot of positive reviews from grateful homeowners that George had helped. I said to myself that the internet is often too good to be true, but hey, where's the harm in trying? So I wrote to George introducing myself and inquiring about the USDA Guaranteed Loan process. Less than an hour later, George replied back and sent me an information packet. Let me remind you that this was a Sunday. The following day, I called George and he very carefully explained to me the whole process and told me that he answers his phone 7 days a week, so I can always call if I have any questions. I immediately had a "warm and fuzzy" feeling when we ended that initial phone conversation. I said to myself that I might have just found THE person who could help my family get our very first home. I told my husband that my gut feeling is right on this one.
George has been nothing but a wonderful, patient, professional guiding hand throughout the whole process - from pre-approval to purchase offer, underwriting, approval and closing. He was always calm and reassuring when things required slightly rigorous paperwork and follow up. He was very straightforward in his advice to us - if it was a "Go", he told us "Yes," but if it was a "No-Go", he told us "Don't do it." His frankness made us trust him and his work.
We closed on our very first home at last month and it does feel like HOME. After we closed, George also followed up with our county's housing authority to make sure that we got the Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC).
If you are looking for someone to help you with your mortgage, your search ends right this minute. Do yourself and your family a big favor, please contact George.
Thank you VERY much, George, for your help, for your guidance, and for making it happen.
