What the Professionals say about the Russell Smith Team:
Russell & his team came HIGHLY recommended by two other local Mortgage Lenders who were not able to get my clients approved for financing. These Lenders said Russell Smith was known to "work miracles" & get clients approved when others could not. My clients had been denied financing by 3 other lenders & were ready to throw in the towel. I asked them to give Russell a shot, & Russell worked around the clock to get them approved. It was not a large purchase, but the way Russell worked on this you would have never known. Not only was Russell able to get them approved, we closed early & put my clients in their "Dream Home" with close to $40k instant equity!!! I can not say enough good things about Russell Smith & his team! I've worked with numerous lenders in my 11 year Real Estate Career, & Russell Smith is one of the best I have ever encountered.
Realtor Charlie Jones, Charles Jones Realty, Wilmington

He and his team utilize their knowledge and expertise to take all of the headache out of a loan closing for both the attorney and the client. Their streamlined system of processing a mortgage loan is like a well-oiled machine, and I can't say enough about his professionalism. He truly is a pleasure to work with.”
