  • "10/10 would recommend! Josh was great to work with. He did a lot of things behind the scenes but still kept me in the loop and answered all my questions in a timely manner."

    — Tayt W.
  • "Absolute best lender I have ever worked with and I have owned 4 houses. Josh was the absolute best, couldn’t be more happy with his work. Things couldn’t have gone any more smoothly throughout the whole process. Highly recommend them."

    — Scott Bain
  • "I greatly appreciated the process was very easy and Josh was very informative on the process. I had a lot of questions as a first time homebuyer and he made the process go smoothly. I enjoyed working with the organization. I have now bought two homes and they have been great to work with both times! I would not recommend anyone else! They were able to answer any questions that I had and even made it easy through the pandemic!"
