Karoline is nice. I started this journey of pursing a mortgage in 2020. During that time Karoline would answer all my questions. Once I actually applied for the mortgage, I had way more communication with “marcela”, which is the assistant, than I did with Karoline. Marcella was amazing. She worked diligently. In my opinion, Karoline rushed my closing, which caused a few bumps. She could have also been a bit more communicative during the closing process.

I am pleased with Yolanda Gietzen, my primary contact. She was available and responsive.
I heard directly from Tom Dugan on closing day. He was abrupt and dismissive; more concerned with closing that day, than my concerns. I requested my interest rate as soon as I submitted my application; received it on closing day! I was VERY dissatisfied!! My credit score is 800 . On a VA loan, I expected 3% or less! I would never use this company again.

From the very beginning there were mistakes on the paperwork that I brought to Tim attention and from that point on the mistakes on the paperwork were greater and greater in intensity. Upon closing, there were countless mistakes that our mobile notary had to stop and make phone calls (we also made calls) in which we were told to sign incorrect paperwork just to get the paperwork done nevermind the gross amount of mistakes.
