Florica Shepherd

It was 2 weeks before my closing and my lender suddenly changed their decision due to a rental home I had (which they knew about all along) fortunately I was introduced to Florica by my realtor! Once I contacted Florica she put my mind at ease and went to work. In 2 weeks she was able to work through all the necessary steps and get me a conventional loan. She communicated with me throughout the whole process and explained everything. She was available immediately and responded to everything quickly. I recommend Florica wholeheartedly. I honestly don’t know how I would have been able to be ready to close on my home in time if not for Florica’s attention to detail and quick action.

Jeff was very personable and gave us excellent advice about our specific financial situation. He wasn't just trying to get us into the largest loan possible, but wanted to provide us with the best option for our income, age, and location. We will definitely ask Jeff to help us with our housing finances in the future!

Florica Shepherd

Florica was knowledgeable in answering all my questions, and made this process as easy as possible for a first time buyer such as myself. Witjh only 3 weeks to close the loan, Florica jumped into action. She stayed in constant contact with me, via text, email and/or phone calls. She was at my side every step of the way. She is brilliant in what she does and made me feel like family. Florica is truly a God send.

Florica Shepherd

Florica was referred to us by our realtor Sasha, who has worked with Florica in the past. After going through the whole process, I now know why she was highly recommended. Florica was easy to work with, made the process of getting a loan and buying a house smooth. When we first reached out to her, she was interested in meeting with us in person unlike a lot of the other lenders, this was nice, it showed she actually wanted to get to know us. After our first meeting with Florica, we knew we wanted to work with her. She was available and easy to get ahold of the whole time, which was great for my fiancee and I who have never been through this process. I really am happy we met Florica and would use her again in the future!

Florica Shepherd

I had an EXCELLENT experience working with Florica in the purchase of my first home. She were reliable, responsive, provided great information, had incredible attention to detail & made sure I felt comfortable with all decisions every step of the way. Right at end of the process - she caught a huge miss that could have put the entire purchase in jeopardy. She worked diligently with the other parties to make sure we were able to close on time!! Saved the day!! To say she was imperative to the purchase of my home is an understatement. In addition to all that - she was able to get in great rates!! I would highly recommend Florica to all my friends & family!
