    My husband and I were looking to buy our first home when we met Laura. Not only was she amazing, but she was so dedicated and passionate. She made sure that we understood the loan process, and was always available to answer any questions. After 3 long months we got our home and couldn't be happier. Thank you!

    Laura is dedicated to putting families in their own homes. I wasn't sure I would quailify to buy my home from my ex-husband, but Laura made my dream possible! We found a loan that suited my needs and started the process. There were some issues that popped up and she contacted me right away, I also did my part promptly. When I had questions, she took time to answer them and made sure I completely understood before she hung up the phone. Laura also made herself availible during off hours via text and email for questions and issues, that isn't found these days. Every possible detail was gone over and addressed by her, I was always kept in the loop about my loan. The closer to settlement we got, she checked and triple checked everything so there were no last minute surprises, which there were not. When we finally got to the settlement table, she was there as well. Laura was a pleasure to work with, it's very obvious she is loves her work. I can't say enough good things, I highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for a mortgage!!

    Laura Destefano went above and beyond to get us to closing in 3 weeks time. We wanted to be in our new home for the holidays and Laura made that happen.

    When another lender told me there was absolutely no way, Laura made it happen! Laura helped make our dreams, a reality. I would highly recommend her and the team to anyone looking to own a home. She took the time to explain all the ways we could make this happen and allowed us to choose what best fit our needs. When it's time to refinance, I wouldn't work with anyone else! Thank you so much for making our dreams come true!

    Laura DeStefano helped navigate and overcome some barriers we had with documentation during the process. Without her guidance and direction we wouldn't be in our home today. Thank you Laura:-)

    Laura, was AMAZING!! Her customer service and her knowledge in the industry is impeccable. I have worked with Laura to purchase my home she made the process smooth. A bit stressful but that comes with the territory of A buying home, but Laura helped me to keep my sanity and walk with me every step of the way.

    From the very beginning, Laura was the best and extremely easy to work with. She was incredibly responsive, answering all of our e-mails and calls very quickly, even when we contacted her late at night. She was very patient, explaining every detail in terms that were easy to understand, even to first-time homebuyers like us. She helped us to close on our home in under a month, and the signing process was easy because Laura took the time to review most of the documents with us ahead of time. She was able to refer us to a great home insurance person, too, and he saved us a substantial amount of money on our homeowner's insurance. We were very impressed by Laura, 10/10 would do business with her again and would recommend her to anyone.

    Laura helped me every step of the way, she explained everything and was very kind and patient with me as a 1st time home buyer! Would totally reccomend her to anyone, infact I have already given her name and number to a fellow co-worker looking to purchase his 1st house.

    From before looking at the first house, to settlement, Laura was extremely pleasant to work with each and every step of the way. She went above and beyond and seemed to be always readily available for questions or concerns even in the PM and weekends! Laura and her company were extremely knowledgeable on ALL types of loans and grants that are available out there that fits your needs. As a first time home buyer, I don't think I could have asked for a better loan officer/company to work with.
