Testimonial: Thank You For Everything!

Here is another raw and detailed Testimonial from one of our happy Everyday Heroes! Read on, below:

“I just wanted to express how pleased with the everyday heroes program…Especially since I came from a very negative situation involving a Fannie Mae property. They [Fannie Mae] were so unprofessional and I ended up not getting the property. This left a bad taste in my mouth about the whole house buying process… Then my wife found the everyday heroes… It sounded good… But the professionalism and responsiveness far exceeded what I expected from the first contact with the EHHAF agent to the constant punctual contact from realtor Denise just made me very happy. A complete 360 from what I experienced. I had one minor hiccup with the appraisal bit that wasn’t their fault, it was the appraiser, but other than that the process went smoothly and quickly…. I would like to say on behalf of my family and myself thank you so much!” -Allen M
