    A good team to take care of you

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    Tim Romine and the Southern Funding Alliance team really took care of me through every step of the loan process. I knew I could rely on them to let me know what my next step should be, which was exactly what I needed going through this process for the first time.

    Tim Romine

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    Tim Romine was extremely helpful through the entire process. I am a first time home buyer and was quite intimidated. I was lucky to have someone as helpful and attentive as Tim.

    Easy overall transaction

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    I primarily worked with Tim Romine with Southern Funding Alliance (SFA). Overall, this was an easy and pleasant transaction. I shopped around before choosing SFA. While narrowing my options, Tim consistently checked in (perhaps more than one would like), and I appreciated his eagerness to secure our business. In comparing all my options, the fees, closing costs, and rates were roughly about the same after accounting for a deduction here but an increase there. So it really came down to who had the better customer service. I found Tim to be very straight-forward and easy to talk to, so I went with SFA. The documentation was simple and hassle-free; granted, we were probably very good/easy customers. There was a minor miscue that occurred when nearing the closing date -we had not been notified that everything was finalized- but that was resolved quickly enough. Also, a couple of the other people in the chain of the transaction sometimes did not answer my questions, but that was relatively minor. The bottom line is that Tim was great to work with and made the transaction relatively easy. I appreciated his eagerness and willingness to quickly respond to my questions and help out with our transaction.

    One stop shop, stress-free

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    I just closed on my first home and thanks to Southern Funding I got a great rate. They helped me from the beginning and referred me to a realtor who was a pleasure to work with. Southern Funding kept me updated on my loan process and was transparent throughout the whole process. Speak with Carter, he has resources all over the state and it really helps to have everyone on the same page.

    Great Service

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    I spoke with several people before speaking with Carter at Southern Funding. No one could get the payments at what I wanted nor could they do the type of loan I needed. Carter examined my needs and offered a product that no one else did. He got the job done; I will refer them to my friends and family.

    Awesome mortgage lender experience.

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    Tim Romine and Southern Funding Alliance were very helpful with my home purchase. My family were still back home in another state and I needed to close early as I had already scheduled air travel to relocate them. Tim made sure I closed early so that I could be with my family and get them relocated to our new home. I was a first time home buyer and Tim was very thorough, making sure I understood each step of the process. He was even there at my closing to make sure it went smoothly.

    Awesome Company

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    Southern Funding Alliance closed my loan within two weeks and 5 days. The loan officer I worked with communicated well throughout the whole process and gave me a rate that no one else could beat. If you want a quick loan and someone that will explain the process well work with Carter Heltzen

    I reccommend these guys

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    When I signed my contract I was 17 days out from close and 11 days from closing on my current house. I contacted Southern Funding Alliance and spoke with Carter Heltzen, he assured me that he would try his best to get the loan closed in 17 days. We ended up closing on time, it was as smooth of a process as it could be seeing that we closed in such a short amount of time. I would refer my family to Southern Funding Alliance, ask to speak with Carter, he was upfront and honest through the whole process.
