Linden was very professional, knowledgeable, efficient, patient and personable. All of these qualities played an important part of processing and closing the loan. Linden was great through the whole process of working with me, to working with the real estate company, and other offices involved. I know the seller’s real estate agent was rude and hard to work with at times. It was unfortunate that Linden had to deal with it but he handled the situation professionally. Also, I was gone 95% of the time traveling for work while buying the home. Linden was great about working with me while I was away and helped keep things moving and organized. It was greatly appreciated.
