Personal references often drive industry and in our case, Michael came highly recommended by numerous friends who had previously leveraged his services. I too will join the list of people recommending Michael to those I know who are about to start the home buying process.
Michael's responsiveness, professional expertise, and understanding of our situation enabled us to navigate our home buying experience with ease and zero stress. Michael was reachable via email and phone after normal business hours as my work schedule did not accommodate regular contact during the day. Michael addressed any concern we had when dealing with VA loans, extended rate locks, and documentation. My title company and real estate agent communicated their pleasure at closing of Michael's work ethic and ability to generate timely and accurate documentation. He pushed our loan documents to the Title Company at the earliest opportunity, thus giving time back to stakeholders downstream of him in the process. The documentation never had to be requested. This made their jobs extremely easy and low stress as they often have issues with lenders (both local and out of state) either being late with documentation or with documentation arriving with issues.
We are glad we chose Michael. Great experience all around. Buying a home and moving were already going to be stressful enough. We never stressed about our loan.
