We want you to have the highest quality, most informed experience possible.  We are here to guide you through the process.  However, we cannot offer specific advice on lenders or financing recommendations for your unique needs. 
Sometimes three is a crowd. We don’t want to be in the middle and slow you down. Only you know the option that suits your needs best, and only the lender can confirm details on the options and pricing they are willing to offer you. 
We don’t want to make guarantees we can’t protect, and we are not licensed to give that kind of advice. We would hate to do you a disservice.  If you have questions about coverage specifics, reach out the the lender(s) you are interested and they can tell you more.
