Call her today for your home financing needs.
We are so very thankful for your assistance in helping us obtain financing to build our new home. Being self-employed as you know has it benefits, and difficulties when it comes to obtaining financing. You helped us for nearly 2 years strategically planning for obtaining the loan for our situation. All the phone calls, emails and "drop in" appointments asking questions of you during the process was extremely helpful and truly appreciated. Elaine and I believe we have gained a new friend and not only a very professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable loan consultant.
Lori Azevedo handled a loan for us and we will go back to her if there is ever a need. She always had time to explain any questions or concerns we had. She is a very efficient person. She made sure we had all the needed documents and everything signed, sealed and delivered. Besides this, she is a very caring and honest person. We enjoyed working with her.
We have worked with Lori for our mortgage needs since 2002. Our first experience was a construction loan for our new home, then the permanent financing once the home was complete, and when we refinanced our home recently, we were blown away at the accuracy and speed in which the transaction was done. She has always been able to find us the right program for our needs and we truly appreciate her honesty and kindness!
