      Alex is knowledgeable, responsive, and poised. He made me very comfortable during the purchase of my first home, despite a large amount of stress and uncertainty.

      Meg Washington, DC

      We would always recommend Alex. He is always responsive and very knowledgeable. Alex is not afraid of telling you the truth, even if it means another lender might be better. His honesty and transparency was meaningful. We will go to him first whenever we need a mortgage.

      Alex was so helpful and quickly answered each of the many questions I had throughout the process. If I had to do everything all over again, I’d want Alex by my side.

      Jonathan Washington, DC

      Alex is very knowledgeable and responds incredibly fast to every email. I was a first-time condo buyer. He always took time to explain each and every detail. He’s the best!

      Daniel Washington, DC

      Alex and his team were so helpful throughout the whole homebuying process. This is our first home, and we felt supported through the entire process. We also got a great interest rate that was much more competitive than others we sourced. I cannot recommend Alex and his team enough!

      Jeremy Washington, DC

      I had the pleasure of being introduced to Alex by my agent. Of the several loan officers I worked while pursuing preapproval, Alex was the most responsive, timely, organized, and thorough. I was a first-time homebuyer, and I wanted a loan officer who was patient enough to walk me through the process. Alex and his team were in constant communication with me either via email or phone and sent clear summaries of our conversations and next steps. Never once did I feel out of the loop or disorganized. Thank you, Alex!

      Washington, DC

      This experience was painless and easy. Alex was ahead of the curve on all aspects of the refi which really helped to make this a seamless experience. We plan to work with Alex again for future home finance items.

      Washington, DC

      Alex and his team were incredible resources during our recent home buying experience. At every step of the way, they answered all of our questions while keeping us aware of all details and milestones. Can’t recommend them more!
