They were so happy with the process in big part after their loan closed due to Adam. He is an asset for AFN and our Landmark Branch!

    How can I put in words how great she is. She is amazing at her job. Her skill level is incredible. She is professional and excels with experience, passion, ambition and dedication to say the least. She goes above and beyond without thinking twice. Our departments work together so well I could not imagine a better team. She is so exceptional that it would take multiple people to do what she (as one person) does and accomplishes…and she makes it look easy by always having a smile on her face. Even in the most stressful scenarios, she maintains control all while keeping a sense of humor and appropriate behavior. You’re the best Mary!
