We appreciated how much Sara was willing to meet with us either on the phone or in person. She was a knowledgeable and caring person to help us without first home mortgage loan. Even though I had a million questions she actively listened and explained her answer. She is a magnificent person and I would love to share with family and friends our great experience with her. I definitely gave her a hug before we left the lawyers office signing for our house and thanked her for keeping this mortgage process smooth.
