Derek White was simply amazing to work with. He was very transparent and candid about everything involving my loan, communication was consistent and prompt and he was genuine in steering me in the direction of what works best for me. He is by far one of the best I've worked with and this is after completing over 10 loans in the past 3 years. TFSB is a definitely recommendation from my perspective.

Derek White is one of the most pleasant individuals I've ever had the pleasure to speak with, on a transaction of this type, over the phone. Yet he manage to make everything personable yet professional. I would not hesitate in returning to Derek White and The Federal Savings Bank for another loan in the future.

Derek White was very professional and knowledgeable. There were two hiccups in the process that were unusual to my loan and not generally expected that Derek was not expecting. He quickly resolved the issues and we were able to move forward. When the support staff had issues Derek was able to steer the process in the right direction!
