    Donna went above and beyond in making the painful process of applying for a loan. The rules seem to keep changing and she is on top of every one of them. She is a pleasure to work with (and has a good sense of humor as well).

    I was very impressed with the extra effort to make sure all necessary documents were submitted when the online attempts were unsuccessful. The communication to keep me informed was exemplary. Realizing I was a relative neophyte in the process, Donna was most patient and thorough. Thankful she was my ‘person’ in this process! Thanks Donna, you’re THE BEST!

    Donna was a steady, encouraging, competent presence and guide from the first conversation through the conclusion of our project. We felt in good hands the whole time and would recommend her services to anyone.

Frustrated with Your House During the Pandemic? Here Are Your Options
