"Sara was helpful, encouraging and thorough. I had unexpectedly been notified the rental house I was in would be sold. I had no idea if I could even qualify for a mortgage. Sara was amazing. She had such an great attitude. When I wasn't hopeful, she always was. She worked so hard to find the best fit for me from a financing standpoint. She was patient with all my questions and thoroughly explained everything. There were no surprises. So very grateful to have found and worked with Sara Fuller on this loan. She is outstanding!"
