Carrie is amazing! She has changed our lives and we could not be happier!

Carrie was great to work with! I would highly recommend her. She is professional, straightforward, friendly, and she knows what she's doing and what she's talking about. She was always willing to help and answer questions any time, no matter how many I'd ask. Carrie is accessible by all ways of communication (phone, office, even offering to drive to your location, text, email) which was nice and convenient since we work full time. She takes every step necessary to help you along the way, she stays on top of the ball at all times, gives tips, advice, recommendations etc. She is in constant contact with you, great communication, and also is technologically current, so you can virtually work on things via internet/phone/email as well. She is still willing to answer questions for us even after closing, we couldn't have asked for a better Loan Officer than Carrie. She is amazing and the one to work with!
