"We switched to Jeffrey's team after meeting them at a community event. We had a pre-approval already but switched after seeing how hard they worked to find every first time home buyer program and what would work best for us. I am glad we did. They were with us every step of the way, in constant communication, providing updates, etc. When we finally found a place, we needed to re-up the pre-approval to make an immediate offer. No problem, we got the pre-approval upped in 10 minutes and we got the house! Then during the closing process, they were efficient, transparent and checked in frequently.
