Realtor review: “This is the most awesome team that anyone could work with to buy a home for the buyer, seller, or real estate agent. With recent changes in the closing guidelines in October of last year nearly every lender that our buyers have used have told us upfront that the closing could take up to 90 days. This team, today, has just closed a VA loan with us in 21 days…all along everyone received constant up to date communication, the attorney received the closing request early so early the paralegal stated they could not get it done that quick, however this team kept pushing and indeed we closed on the date they requested at the first and that was nearly one month early. I strongly recommend their services to you. You will be glad you made the call!” Kip Nance, Only Way Realty
