Testimonial

"Charles was very confident in setting up our loan and saved us from having to move. He is great in helping to get a mortgage loan. We are pleased he helped us through our loan. If I had questions Charles was very helpful in answering them. Charles attended the closing, at the closing Charles and his lawyer informed us of the forms we were signing and any questions were answered then. Thank you for helping so much."
