Monica and her team are the best we have ever worked with. Our realtors shared how impressed they were with Monica and her team as well. It's evident by the way they handle the whole process that they are veterans in their field. We love how effective and efficient they are. During the process, they continually reassured us and helped to reduce the natural stress that goes along with the process. We appreciate the constant communication and the follow-up. Because of their exceptional support we were able to close on time. They help to make dreams possible and we are so grateful for the way they do their job.

Excellent service and lovely, caring people!

—Jon, Client

Monica was very helpful and knowledgeable. She listened to our desires and goals and presented all options. Once the loan process got started, she was extremely helpful in getting us the information we asked for, walking us through the process, and being very flexible with our busy schedule. I would definitely recommend Monica to friends/family. The only thing that we would suggest is a little more info on timelines. Sometimes we were left wondering, but a call/email to her was replied to in a very timely manner.

—Benjamin Slyder

Monica Bowman and team provided an exceptional experience. I was apart of THE team throughout the process AND felt we all work cohesively and collaboratively.

Our refi was a breeze! Monica and Nika were both super helpful and capable. It was also so nice to be able to trust the people working on our loan... not having to inspect all the fine print with a magnifying glass... This was our second loan with Monica, and if we ever need a third we will definitely be back. Highly recommended!
