I really just wanted to reach out and tell you how great it was working with your team. You have assembled a rock star cast. I’ve done my fair share of purchases/refinances and I’ve never had a smoother experience. I honestly can’t say enough great things about Bernadette!! I’ll be reaching out shortly to see if you can refi three of my investment properties and I plan on giving you all my work in the future. Thanks again!

My husband and I have been through multiple refinances over the years of owning property and due to the sheer amount of information and work required, they have all been extremely painful. This is the first refinance experience that’s been different.
I’d like you to know how much I appreciated the fact that Paige listened to my concern in our first conversation, about the workload required and she consistently made it as easy as possible throughout the entire engagement. I was impressed with her responsiveness, attention to detail, organization and great demeanor. In fact, I never expected that I would enjoy our interactions as much as I did!
Also, you’ve selected a great partner in Tom Pilato and Capitol Settlements. Thank you for a great experience.

After a bankruptcy and financial issues I never thought I’d be able purchase a house, let alone on my own. I got approved with another bank and was shocked! I went house shopping and was referred to First Heritage as they were preferred by the builder. I received so many perks going with them. The process seemed slow to me because I was anxious but Bernadette was always there to answer questions and reassure me when I got stressed out. When I got the Loan Estimate I sent it to other lenders to see if they could beat it and no one could. I got the best rate, no points and no hidden fees or charges. First Heritage was STRAIGHT UP!! I closed on time and had ZERO loan issues. I highly recommend them and the only thing I can say is when they ask for documents, get it to them ASAP!! I love First Heritage the home buying process is stressful but they made the loan process easy. Thank you for my first new construction home!!

The entire staff was extremely kind and professional. I could reach out to them at any time of the day and always received prompt and timely answers to my questions. This was my first mortgage, and I will definitely come back to them in the future!

This was by far the easiest purchase thanks to the amazing team. Rates were good, process was fast, but the service beat any bank that I have previously dealt with, in orders of magnitude! Bernadette Richard was fantastic. Made the process very easy.

The best experience we ever had with refinancing a mortgage! Jerry Berry and his team moved fast and efficiently and made the whole process such a pain- free experience for us. Will highly recommend to all our friends and family.

Phenomenal team…we were able ratify our contract within 25 hours, secure our loan in most expeditious yet regulatory manner and close within 30 days of a fully ratified offer. I lived in Hawaii and was able to rapidly and securely upload my financial documents and as necessary, speak to a member of Jerry’s team whenever I had a concern, a truly phenomenal virtual process that took place over a span on 5000 miles and two times zones.

A team assumes the personality of their leader and Mr. Jerry Berry is a great leader. Mr. Berry and his team were accessible and displayed exceptional integrity and professionalism. These attributes are what sets Mr. Berry and his team apart from others. I have a lot of experience in dealing with people and Mr. Berry is the best and he knows the mortgage business! Great experience refinancing our house.
