I just want to say I am so thankful for Letitia! She believed in me when I didn’t think I could do it! We worked together and got it up in just a real short time! She even helped me find the most amazing realtor who helped me find our house we instantly fell in love with. As of today, we have a house to call home and can honestly say we are no longer living pay check to pay check. I owe this all to Letitia! If it wasn’t for her giving me a push to buying our home, we would still be paying high rent. Read full review on Zillow.

Letitia is patient, understanding, and compassionate. She took the time to help me understand everything as it was my first time buying a home. She went the extra mile to figure out how to layer multiple incentives/products to make sure I got the best possible mortgage. I am thankful for her unwavering confidence. It was particularly uncertain moving forward during a pandemic, and Letitia was calm and steady every step of the way. She never pressured me or added stress to the equation. Thanks to her and her team, we are in out first home. You are in the best of care with Letitia. Read full review on Zillow.

I've worked with Letitia before, but this time she really gave exceptional customer service. This was a difficult loan for my family and I, so a lot of times it was frustrating. Letitia assured me that things were being worked on and would get done, she calmed me tons of times when I was upset and always remained professional. Tish made things relaxing from beginning to end even in a day and time of Covid-19. My family and I will definitely refer and work with her again. Read full review on Zillow.
