Nelson is very knowledgeable and communicative about what is possible in the market today. If he promises, he delivers.

Nelson and his team were resilient, devoted, and maintained patience throughout the whole process as it was a file that required more than the average and I didn’t have access to all the information which made it harder to acquire. Nonetheless, they have persevered and in the end I was very satisfied with my purchase. Thanks Nelson!



Great communication, helped a lot when it came to different programs that suited us. Made every effort to make sure we were able to close without a problem.

Lino Maravilla Licona


Nelson and his team are excellent professionals and are excellent in what they do. They explained everything to us with wonderful details, they helped us since the very beginning of the loan to the end, and every time we needed Nelsons help he responded to our needs. We recommend working with him. Thank you very much.
