Review Breakdown

Amazing Experience

Our loan officer Minka Wright was nothing short of amazing. She was the first person who contacted us after we signed up for lending tree so I gave her the first call back. After getting a call back from her minutes later and having a conversation I knew she was a perfect fit for us. My wife and I looked at only one house and decided it was perfect, but it had only been on the market for a few hours and we need to call Minka on a Saturday morning to get info about loan possibilities. Despite the fact that she was in the process of moving herself, she still answered my phone call and answered all of our questions and got the ball rolling, helping us secure financing for our new home. Minka kept in constant contact via email throughout the whole process and we never felt like we were in the dark. She even came to our closing to ensure everything went smoothly. I cannot say enough good things, and I can guarantee you will not regret making her your next loan officer!

Great Experience

As a first time home buyer, the entire process of financing a house and navigating through underwriting and into closing was a bit daunting.
Jonathan was extremely professional and responsive every step of the way. He did a great job interacting with my agent, the seller's agent, and the closing attorney.
I would definitely recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for financing in the future.

New Home Loan

I would recommend Jamie to all of my relatives and friends. She was extremly resonsive, and communicated any issues quickly. The entire process was explained and the closing went smoothly. 5 start customer service.
