What excellent service! Everyone I encountered at Shelter Home Mortgage during the whole process was knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. They kept me informed and updated on each step of the process. The seller’s agent even commented on how impressed she was with the updates and follow-through by Joanne and her entire team.

Joanne and her team were the best! During each step of the process I was given exceptional service. Very professional and courteous. They made me feel like I was #1 and their top priority.

Joanne was knowledgeable, thorough, and always available to answer our questions. We’d use Shelter again even if they didn’t have the best rate, which they did!
