Homebuyers were Busy in January; Pending Sales Rise

Linden was awesome to work with and made us feel important and hopeful right of the bat. Unlike banks or other lenders, he made us feel comfortable and good about the position we were at. He made this process so easy for us! I will definitely recommend him to others so they can have as easy of a process as we did.
