Honest, Diligent, and Single point of contact

“I price shopped multiple lenders including ones I had used in the past. Jay came in less expensive with far fewer fees than anyone else. When I had a better rate, he went to his superiors and got it matched. I chose him because he made me feel comfortable early on and answered questions thoroughly and honestly. During the process was even better, not only did he remain engaged WHILE ON HIS HONEYMOON! He also was the ONLY person I communicated with or provided documents to. I was NEVER passed to a processor or "closer" he handled it from A-Z. Honestly because of past experience I was somewhat nervous throughout the process because I wasn't getting multiple emails or requests from a multitude of people, turns out it was simply Jay doing what others SHOULD do. Getting it done effectively and without hassle for the client. Thanks again Jay!”
