Doug and his team did an outstanding job. I had recently tried refinancing through another company a few months ago and experienced very poor communication and feeling of not knowing what has happening. Over a week after signing our closing documents we were finally notified that the funding was not going to happen and they told us there was nothing they could do for us. Upon hearing this, Doug went above and beyond and figured out a way to help us so we could refinance. He was communicating often with me about where we were in the process. It is obvious he was knowledgeable about the process and all the options available. Thanks again, Doug!

Can't even begin to say what an outstanding job Doug Smith did with a very time consuming loan. From start to finish, the experience was in a word, seamless. Thanks to Doug and the team for their outstanding customer service skills and ability to make a loan I didn't even think possible come into fruition! I will definitely recommend Doug to anyone looking to purchase or refinance in the future!

Working with Doug Smith was awesome! I tried to refinance with three other companies, two telling me no we can't do it. Doug got the job done! My wife and I are super happy.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Smith for all his hard work, diligence, persistence, courtesy, and patience on my behalf. He is truly a man among men. Initially, I was quite reluctant to undertake this refi experience due to the fact that I had had two bad prior experiences.

None of this was the case with Mr. Smith. We talked for quite some time developing a report with one another. I felt comfortable with his knowledge of the field, his calmness, and the ease of conversation, let alone our discussions about family life. There are several outstanding qualities about Doug Smith that I admire.

First, he is a man of his word. He will under promise and over deliver (Biden quote.) He is very prompt and timely about documents that need to be sent.

Second, he has the patience of Job, in helping and walking me through computer technology to complete all documents. He walked me through every step of the way and it seemed so easy when he explained it to me in non-technological terms.

Third, he was consistent and persistent in helping me secure the necessary documents that I needed for closing; even to the extent of being on conference calls with bank managers and helping them to understand what I needed in a non-threatening way-amazing.

Fourth, he went to extra mile to wait until I finished the conference calls, waited until I traveled home, and called me to help me go through the PDF files I knew nothing about. He walked me through every step of the way.

Fifth, he was always available to me no matter what time of day or night and if I reached a voice message he always returned my calls.

Sixth, he has a tremendous sense of humor to alleviate the stress he knew I was going through.

Finally, after closing, he sent me a birthday greeting-what a guy! As well as him calling to see if everything went smoothly at closing.

In conclusion, I consider Doug as an accomplished banker, good friend, and a superb human being he should go to the top of the class with a TREMENDOUS raise in salary. I look forward to doing business with him again this winter and will not hesitate to recommend all my friends to him. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

The mortgage transaction was a very tranquil process in part because of the professionalism, knowledge and the humanitarian aspect that we experienced. Douglass Smith was exceptional in providing support during this difficult loan process. His honesty, understanding, explanations, and reasoning during this process truly helped to make this experience worthwhile! Kudos to Doug on a job well done.
