    Debbie Resch gave props to Rosa

    This was a very complicated escrow. We had a Calhfa first, My Home 2nd and a ZIP third, plus MCC. Layered on that, the seller and seller’s agent were very demanding and not open to much negotiating when some issues arose with inspections, etc.

    Rosa really did a great job for me. 

    When I called the seller to give updates, Rosa had already completed tasks that they were concerned about and it turned a worried seller and seller’s agent into calm people.

    In a nut shell, she made me look really good on the street and I so appreciate that.

Very proud to say that it is closing tomorrow because of Victor’s hard work ethic and care for our borrower. Great job!!!

    Lisa Cardoza gave props to Barb

    I have been meaning to give my kudos to Barb for weeks. But after reading John Sherman’s “Company Turn Times” email today I knew I had to say something NOW. We are regularly closing loans, both conventional and FHA, in 30 days because Barb is fast, efficient and knowledgeable. To add to her excellence she is also a blast to work with! She is the whole package. We would surely benefit from more Barb Kite’s but I am glad I have the one and only!!!
