Lauren worked over time and above the call of duty to handle our refinance loan. When circumstances occurred because of the coronavirus, she made sure everything got done. My wife was with out daughter in Los Angeles helping her with our newborn granddaughter and Lauren arranged to have a Notary Republic come to her and get the necessary signatures. We are very happy with the service Lauren provided us. You have a gem of an employee.

—Ronald Crump

The only negative aspect was the person that showed up to sign the doc’s. I feel she was very unprofessional and rude. We welcomed her into our house and offered her a cool drink even though she was visibly heated standing in our walkway. I am very happy I did not have to ask her to leave, she made my children feel uncomfortable in their own house.
