There are many lenders in New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties of NC; some of them well known, but I will say in 9 years as a Real Estate broker who has worked with 20+ lenders... THERE IS NO ONE THAT SERVES THE CLIENT AND INTEREST OF THE BUYER MORE EFFICIENTLY AND PROFESSIONALLY THAN RUSSELL SMITH'S TEAM! They are honest, responsive, always kind, and will do whatever it takes to close on time and seamlessly! There is no one, and I mean no one that does mortgage lending better than Russell Smith! I will use no other lender when I have a choice in the matter!

Keep up the good work. It is seldom communication is kept open with all the parties in the transaction from the lender. That makes everyone feel at ease and trusting in what you are doing. Thank you all very much.
