    At the start AEM seemed like a good company to work with, very responsive, worked with e-documents, flexible, etc. Things became troublesome when they charged for the appraisal without my approval. When I asked about it they said it "was a hold". The hold cleared into an actual charge immediately showing it wasn't a hold. Shortly afterwords the appraiser contacted to set up a time. Instead of setting up a time told him would not be using his services. I then emailed AEM telling them I would not be continuing with the loan and to please return the appraisal fee. Of course they went from responding within minutes to ignoring my emails.
