Joe Wanta did a great job communicating with us despite the fact that we made it difficult with our busy schedules. Refinancing ended up being easier than we thought it was going to be.

Joe Wanta is a great professional, that he actually even helped and assisted me on his wedding day (I didn't know). That's pretty incredible when you stop and think about it. Always answered any and all questions quickly and professionally, a true future leader of any organization. And to cap it off, he's a genuinely great person on top of it all.
