"Jerry took amazing care of us! The entire process was smooth, easy to understand, and extremely organized. We really enjoyed working with him and 1st Choice. Jerry constantly reached out to see if we needed anything or had any questions and there was never a lack of communication. Timing on approvals was incredible and he was with us every step of the way, even after the ink was dry! We highly recommend using Jerry and will encourage anyone looking for a lender to contact him!"
