"I just want to thank you for helping me get my first home. I am so happy and very appreciative for all your help. I never imagined getting my first home and here in Alexandria City where I have always lived ever since I came to Virginia. At the age of 13 I left my country because it was not safe and I traveled through Mexico to get to the US. I started working when I was 14 years old and by the age of 15 I ended up in foster care. I was placed with different families and moved several times. I was homeless multiple times even after I graduated from college and I had no place to live. I am sharing this information with you because you helped me reach one of my goals of having a place to call home. I really appreciate your help and it was great working with you!"

"I actually did work with other banks/mortgage brokers before, but I regretted my decision immediately after that. One of them took one month of my time collecting documents and ran my credit report and said you do not qualify for 'that particular loan'. While there is always a lot of options, not every home buyer is a loan/mortgage expert and knows all of those options! But, I think, it is crucial for the bank representatives to know all since it's their main profession and expertise. I'm glad I had Richard helping me throughout the process."
