Getting a loan during COVID is very challenging because of all of the new and hopefully temporary regulations we need to comply with and extra documentation we need to come up with. The process was challenging because of the realities of the situation and not because of FM Loans. Yael was very helpful in navigating what I know must have been difficult for everyone and she and her team put in a lot of extra effort to help guide us through the process. I would definitely use you again.

This was our first time purchasing a home and Yael made this experience pleasant. They addressed all of our concerns and worked tirelessly to get us the best possible rate. I would definitely work with Yael again for any future purchases.
