Greg Lira was the best! This was my first time buying a home. Plus this was a very special reason I was able to buy and he was attentive to that & explaining what needed to be done to accomplish my goals.
I have had such a wonderful experience- It has felt like Greg was apart of my family going through this process with me and making everything fall into my place for me and my family. He went above and beyond, helping us fix our credit along the way to stopping by to see the house after we closed. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Greg and the Academy Team.
Greg really made himself familiar with us and made me feel comfortable whenever we spoke. It was never intimidating or hard to ask questions or speak to him.
Our lian experience was nothing but great. Greg Lira always kept us in the loop, and made us feel confident. His team helped thru the whole thing
Thank you. I wanted to commend Greg [Lira]. I have never seen someone more efficient, more determined to get my business and provide council. He called me late on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I have never had a business deal started on that day, and he made me feel completely confident that he would get this deal done by years end. You have a magnificent employee and a good hard working man who made me feel I was the most important person he was dealing with.
