    A HUGE THANK YOU to Deanna for getting my loan approval letter to my Realtor in LESS than 24 hours when the mortgage departments of the credit union that I've been banking with for over 18 years & the Bank that I've been banking with for over 9 years couldn't even call me back in 2 weeks (and still counting).
    You're amazing Deanna & I would highly recommend your services to anyone.

    You are so right, Deanna, in your blog post. I went into my bank and asked the person if they were licensed and they told me they were not. I followed your advice and turned around and walked out. I thank you for setting me straight and I will only use a LICENSED mortgage officer for my loan.
