    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.

    My husband and I just bought our first home and we worked with Laura on our loan/mortgage. There are really no words to express our appreciation and gratitude for all Laura did for us. She is truly phenomenal. When we first started the process and she got us pre-approved, she explained everything to me so we clearly understood everything. I told her what we wanted to pay for a mortgage and she told me the price range we needed to be in. Once we found our home, Laura made sure our process went as smoothly as possible. She came back to her office after hours so we could sign paperwork and came in on Saturday mornings as well to work with us. She answered my emails all hours of the night and always informed me of any changes, even on a holiday weekend! Her communication is outstanding and she completely eased our minds throughout the whole process. On top of her complete competency in her profession, she is a genuinely wonderful person and so great to work with. Thank you Laura for all you did. Sam and I cannot thank you enough.

    Laura was amazing to work with. She answered all of my questions thoroughly. She is always prompt to get back to you and makes you feel important. Laura knows all there is to know about the mortgage you are applying for. She is always working for you up until the time you sign at your closing, she definitely will have my business if I ever need to get another mortgage and I will recommend her to anyone I know that needs a mortgage. Thank you so much for everything you did to help me have my dream come true!
