Being a first-time homeowner we were little nervous but Charles made it so easy, he took care of everything!!!We were so impressed on our first meeting, he explained the whole process listed out the thing we needed and that is it. From the beginning to the closing he was always there for us. My wife and I are so grateful to Midwest family lending and Charlie.
