Sue's patient and prompt responses throughout this crazy process kept us grounded and focused. While there were a couple of hair raising moments towards the end, everyone involved, including her assistant, Katharine and Monica at the law firm contributed to a great team. We were very satisfied.

This is my second mortgage transaction with Sue and she did not disappoint! She's lightening fast with her numbers and communication, super organized and she and her assistant take care of every detail from start to finish with clear explanations of the options and process. I highly recommend you see her if you want to work with someone alert and efficient representing your best interest as a home buyer.

Sue & Katie were better than my wife & I could have expected. My wife's mother passed at the end of June while 6 months pregnant with our first child. We had to handle one challenge after another, & after being introduced to Sue & Katie, they both simply understood our situation. They always picked up their phones, responded quickly by email, and were kind.... all while closing by our initial date! I will be recommending those purchasing a home to get in touch with this powerhouse team.

Sue was knowledgeable and communicative throughout the whole process. New regulations due to COVID have made securing a mortgage challenging for seasonal business owners like my wife and me. When other lenders promised and couldn't deliver, Sue laid out in clear terms how she would get it done and we were able to close on time. Thank you Sue!!

Sue is excellent. This is the second time working through financing with Sue, and cannot express the thanks and accolades. Very communicative & very straight forward. I have recommended and will recommend Sue for many years.
