Candice Kingston is who made the entire experience fantastic. She answered every call and every question I had throughout the process. As a new customer she made me feel as if she always had the time to help me out, even through her busy times. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who work with Total Mortgage, ask for Dave and Candice!

There are not enough words to describe an experience the service at Total Mortgage. I have my experience with the company , but this time is different because buying a home to live in is different than buying an investment. The process by all means is overall rated tedious, difficult and stressful. I cannot be so happy that I chose Total Mortgage among many other lenders, and have being blessed to have Candice, Lauretta and overrall Dave Stambone leading the process. Dave is empathetic, patient, and is trustworthy. He explained in details of what to expect, and what need to be done to successfully close the loan in a timely fashion. Dave responds or returns my calls without delay. When I told my wife that I have a closing date scheduled for April first, she couldn't believe me thinking that it was "April fools." Just to specify how fast was the process. Dave even stop by to congratulate me on the purchase at closing. Once again thanks Dave!

Dave and his team were amazing during our initial mortgage process. When it was time to refinance, we knew exactly where to go. From timely responses to ensuring we understood each step, Dave is truly the best around!
