“This was my first home purchase and Lori was absolutely amazing at keeping me calm and informed. She was extremely knowledgeable and very responsive! I had MANY questions and she got back to me asap with detailed answers that required little to no reply from me. The loan process was a breeze for me thanks to Lori and I know many first time home owners cannot say the same. I will absolutely be returning to Lori in the future as well as recommending her to many others along the way. Thank you Lori for everything! ”

“Lori has been so amazing during our whole process. I tried using her once before but was unable to after she did so much work, so I knew I had to use her again after her immediate responses. Lori was always eager to answer our questions, no matter how big or small. She communicated well with our realtor, the closing agent etc. We even had to change something last minute, she accommodated made it work immediately and never got flustered. It was a pleasure working with Lori...and she had great rates. Highly recommend Lori for all of your lending needs.”

“Lori is extremely efficient, professional and second to none in her industry. Highly recommended for anyone looking to fund or refinance a property. Was empathetic and responsive.”
—James Marshall from from Ellenton, FL
“Lori was a joy to work with throughout our home search across the better part of a year. She guided us through complex questions, helped us navigate a tricky closing (including an overseas POA due to deployment), and went above and beyond in her communication/responsiveness. We will undoubtedly always turn to Lori for our mortgage needs. It was also very clear she works hard to build trusted relationships with the realtors she works with.”
—Kate Cullen from from West Harrison, IN
“Searching for homes in 2022 has been scary, the market is shifting, inflation is high and interest rates are raising. We came to Lori from a lender offering an astronomical interest rate with zero transparency. Lori was able to shave a whole percentage off the previously offered rate and was very attentive answering all of our questions and concerns. Even finding us more savings before closing. There was also a concern that “closing under 30 days is unheard of”, Lori went above and beyond. We offered two different times. Lori had us tracking to close very quickly. Finally closing in just over 20 days. Very happy with our experience with Lori and will be working with her again! Highly recommend Lori! Good luck on your search! ”

“We worked with Lori from the start of our house search/pre-approval process through the purchase of our new home. I cannot recommend Lori enough, she is incredibly responsive, easy to communicate with, organized and professional. This was all so important while putting many offers in such a competitive market. Once we finally got an offer accepted, the process of finalizing everything for our closing was seamless, she had our loan finalized a week before our closing date! We will 100% work with Lori again. ”

“This was my dream home purchase and Lori was absolutely amazing at keeping me calm and informed. There were many delays due to the builder and Lori was always very flexible and accommodating. She was extremely knowledgeable and very responsive! I had MANY questions and she got back to me asap with detailed answers that required little to no reply from me. The loan process was a breeze for me thanks to Lori and I'm so thankful that I was able to get into my dream home! Thanks for everything again Lori! ”

“This was our first time buying a home so we had a lot of questions, and Lori was quick to reply and always patient. She is clearly very knowledgable in her field and did a great job of talking through our loan options. To top it off, the rates and closing costs were extremely competitive. We look forward to working with Lori in the future and cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone looking to finance a home!”
—Jason Murrell from from Fallbrook, CA
“My agent referred Lori to me. I'm super satisfied with the whole mortgage process. She was always available to answer my questions or concerns in a timely manner. She was very efficient to get the work done very well. She helped me to lock the rate on a Sunday night before the rate continued to climb. With her help, the loan was approved within only 2 weeks. Thank you Lori! I will recommend Lori to anyone who may need a mortgage.”
—Sheng from from Buford, GA
