Here's what my clients are saying...
I am so thankful I was referred to Dave. Every time I sent him a property I was interested in, he would immediately crunch all the numbers and give me an estimate for what I could expect. He even found a great, more affordable first-time home buyer program that I was qualified for, which two other lenders never mentioned. Once I found “the one”, Dave was reachable right away and sent me the estimates for total cash to close and monthly mortgage payments. Once my offer was submitted, he gave the listing agent a call on my behalf to ensure I was a well-qualified client of his, which helped make the sellers feel very confident in accepting my offer. Dave then put on his “running shoes” and committed to an exceptionally fast close! I can’t recommend Dave enough; I’ll be referring all my friends and colleagues. Thanks Dave!
We worked with Dave this past summer on a refinance of our home. He was extremely responsive, supportive and available to us. We've had some challenging experiences in the past with loan officers who were hard to get in touch with, and Dave was a wonderful surprise . . . we felt valued and supported by him every step of the way. His years of experience in the field also served us well, as he understood and could explain all the parts of the mortgage process. We recommend him highly!
Dave was so helpful in making the loan process easy for my husband and I. He was always available for questions that came up. He was very knowledgeable about the different types of options available and explained them in detail to us. We are very happy with Dave and highly recommend! He made what could have been stressful experience feel simple :)
Dave was so great! He was completely helpful and worked hard to figure out how to work through some barriers. He was very knowledgeable and it was a very smooth process for two first time home buyers. We are so glad we worked with him!

My wife and I purchased a For Sale By Owner property that needed work, a VA loan, and a very busy hard to reach seller. And on top of everything we were trying to sell our other home to meet the debt to income ratio.
There were a lot of issues that came up and Dave porter was ready with an option and/or a recommendation.
We ended up not being able to sell or other home prior to closing, but Dave came up with another option for us. This option allowed us to finish closing on our new home while waiting on the sale of our old.
My wife and I have nothing but praise for Dave Porter. If you want a great Loan Officer who actually cares then reach out to him.
I highly recommend Dave Porter for your loan officer. Very knowledgeable and conscientious. He prepared my paperwork in a timely manner and was always available to answer any questions I had. Highly recommend.
Working with Dave Porter on our last home loan made buying a home really easy. He was always really quick to get us quotes based on different loan amounts and down payments and walked us through all the different costs that are included in closing. He was available to answer questions whenever we needed, and would proactively check in on the status of our offer and closing. Thanks for your help and all your hard work Dave!
Dave Porter was the best. He made my first experience of buying a home phenomenal. Dave made the process simpler and quicker than I'd ever imagined, despite the distance. I wouldn't recommend any other loan officer to assist you in buying a home! I will never forget this experience thanks to Dave! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Dave did a great job for my wife and I when we recently purchased our house. He made the process very simple, and notified us very quickly when there were updates, or something that we needed to do. I felt really secure using Dave and would recommend him to anyone that is purchasing a new home.
