I can't tell you how happy I was working with Jeffrey and his team. He worked so closely with me putting all the pieces together to make sure I got the house that I know a big bank would not have taken the time to do. A lot of people working in the film and music industry run into the same problems when getting qualified to buy a house, and Jeffrey expertly navigates this process and avoids all the pitfalls. I can't say enough good things, and I wouldn't own a house today if it weren't for him!

Jeffrey was great every step of the way. Very attentive to any questions that came up, quick to respond, and ready to step in and help at any point necessary. It was an absolute pleasure working with him.
