Why we should work together
Christina went above and beyond to make my home buying process simple, quick, and pleasant! She was very professional and communicative and was sure to update me at every step of the loan process. Christina and her team offered a wraparound experience, connecting me with everything I needed during this process. There was very little groundwork to do because Christina and her team spent early mornings, late evenings, and weekends to take care of everything they could. I was pre-approved and closed on my home all within 30 days! I’m grateful for her!

I don't plan on purchasing another home in my lifetime, but I would work with her again if I did without question. Furthermore, I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a mortgage lender.

She’s trustworthy, dependable, and will get the job done! Sadly, you can’t say that for everyone these days because the hustle and work ethic she possesses is a dying art.
