I have been using Kathleen Gentile as my mortgage person for many years. She is extremely professional and always makes the process easy.
Kathleen was amazing throughout the entire loan process and exceeded all of our expectations!
Kathleen is so awesome!! When asked what was the best part of my experience – I wish I was allowed more than one answer because Kathleen and her team provided incredible customer service, great communication, and my loan terms exceeded my expectations!! Thank you, Kathleen!!!!!
Kathleen Gentile was one of the best people I have had the pleasure of working with. She is incredibly professional, communicative, and helpful. She was always available to talk and explained very complex topics in a concise, digestible way. She went above and beyond to get us closed in 21 days from the offer and even worked around our schedule for communication while we were out of the country. I cannot speak more highly of her or our experience working with her. We have already recommended Kathleen to friends who are in the process of looking for a home and will continue to do so.
Kathleen Gentile was always friendly, cheerful, and available any time that I had questions or dealings with her. She kept me informed every step of the way. I couldn’t be more pleased!
Throughout the entire process, Kathleen and her team did everything in their power to make the process smooth, and to overcome difficulties related to our particular financial situation.
Kathleen was wonderful and made the whole process so easy. She was reassuring and comforting when I needed it the most!
Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into my recent mortgage of the Hiawassee home in GA. Mike and I are thrilled to have this home. I have to say, this was one of the smoothest transactions and I am so grateful for you and your team’s support. I have worked with Kathleen Gentile on many mortgage transactions since 2011. I was referred to Kathleen through a good friend and The Federal Savings Bank financed my home mortgage. In 2014, I obtained a second mortgage for home improvements, 2015 refinanced, and in 2016 bought a 2nd home through The Federal Savings Bank. In September 2020 I purchased a 3rd home. The Federal Savings Bank is where I do all my major life transactions because of Kathleen Gentile and The Federal Savings Bank team. I am a repeated customer because Kathleen is professional, she knows the business well and I do not stress out. I may do my day to day banking elsewhere, but my major life transactions are all done through The Federal Savings Bank. I am always very satisfied with the services The Federal Savings Bank team provides. Kathleen is an outstanding trusted mortgage broker during important life transactions. I do not stress out knowing she and her team are providing these services and supporting the transaction. I am always kept informed every step of the way and if I have any questions, day or night, even on weekends, Kathleen is responding. I would refer Kathleen because she is honest and tells it like it is. The Federal Savings Bank team is awesome!
