    From the beginning of the process to the day of funding, Suzy and her assistant, Lance, were exactly what anyone would hope for when refinancing their home. They responded to all my questions with patience and in a timely manner. They let me know what to expect and when to expect it every step of the way. I couldn't be more pleased with the service I received. Thank you Suzy and Lance for making this so easy!
