Working with Kim and the team at Shelter was a fantastic experience. Every step of the process was clearly outlined both in phone calls and email. I never felt lost or confused about what was happening with our loan or what I was due to provide. The team was also very responsive if I had a question and I love that Kim would call with weekly updates. I would unquestionably recommend Shelter to anyone looking for a mortgage.

Kim Pounders and the team at Shelter Home Mortgage were top notch throughout the entire process. Kim provided weekly calls to make sure that we were constantly in the loop and made us feel very at ease. 10/10 will use them again in the future. I can't say enough good things.

The entire team was exceptional. I couldn't imagine trusting a different group with my home loan process. Kim Pounders went above and beyond to make sure we were completely satisfied and understood the entire loan process. I will call her anytime I am buying or selling a home in the future.
