You can count on me and my team for responsible, honest, and ethical service in every step of the process.
Hire more people like Karen Woolhiser. Absolutely fantastic service and very knowledgeable and diligent to the max.
Thank you for all of your help in this process. You were so great to work with and made a very stressful situation (buying a house) seem very seamless and easy. Your availability and timely communication was amazing and we just want to say, ‘Thank you!’
As ﬁrst time home buyers, Karen’s expertise and knowledge of the home purchasing process was invaluable. She knew of tax credits and loan options other lenders never made us aware of. We had heard horror stories of how difficult the process could be, but Karen made it a very pleasant experience. Whenever we have the chance we will recommend Karen and Citywide Home Loans.
Karen has guided me through many ﬁnancing situations. Some were very straight forward and others were not so easy and required out of the box thinking and the skills of a seasoned ﬁnancing professional. Karen succeeded in closing every loan with care, understanding and great patience. I would recommend Karen on every level with great conﬁdence that she will get the job done!
You have made this experience so wonderful and smooth sailing for us. We just can’t thank you enough for everything you have done to help us! We have learned so much and value all of your advice.”
Karen was remarkable during the whole loan process.I have been trying to purchase a home over the last 5 years and every time I was frustrated by the loan institution that I was dealing with to the point I had just given up trying to buy a house. I was introduced to Karen and was shocked how easy this went I literally just gave her what she asked for the first time and she handled everything else.she kept in touch with me all the time to let me know how things were progressing all the way up to the closing were she was present to guide us through the process and she even bake us a cake she made from scratch.i will never use anyone but Karen for all my future financial needs.
Kevin and I would not be in our home today if it wasn't for Karen. Our situation was very unique in the fact that we are both self-employed so the paperwork was very intense. Karen was extremely patient, kind and professional in some very stressful situations. She is our angel and she was our advocate during the entire process. We love our home and refer our friends and family to her all the time. Karen has become a friend as well as a professional referral to our friends and family. We cannot thank her enough for all her hard work.
Things with our loan got very complicated due to unexpected circumstances, but Kaeen stayed on top of everything and worked amazingly hard to make sure that everything went through. Without her dedication and experience, we likely would have lost our dream house! She was patient, understanding, empathetic, and knowledgeable. We can't recommend her enough!
We can't say enough wonderful things about Karen Woolhiser. She is not only warm and personable, but honest and trustworthy. Karen was always quick to respond to emails or phone calls, even after hours. Our situation was complicated, Karen willingly took on the challen and helped us get our dream house.
Karen was recommended to us during a home purchase in 2013 and it couldn't have gone better. We were so impressed with her knowledge and service that when it came time to purchase another home earlier this year, she was the one and only call we made. Karen is extremely educated and up to date on the industry and is such a wonderful communicator. We appreciated how organized she was and that she worked with our busy schedules. SHes goes out of her way to make the loan process as seamless as possible. We really hope that we have found our forever home, but in the event that we choose to move again, she'll be the only call we make for our financing needs.
