Another Happy EHHAF Family

20150716_122551

“The agent that we had to use  was wonderful.  She never gave up on us even though we thought about giving up multiple times.  She would take the time to respond no matter what time we got ahold of her. She helped us get everything done even at last minute.  The mortgage  company we used was friendly and responded as quickly as they could,  which was difficult since there’s a 4 hour time difference.  They got all the paper work and submitted everything on time for us to be able to close on time. We’re happy in our new home. “
