“The best part after being approved was Rick Melville did exactly what he said he would do! One in particular was we had a month to close and he was able to do that with time to spare.”
“Rick answered all of our questions quickly and made it a painless experience. Our original meeting with Rick was our 1st refi, several years ago. And now, on our 3rd time financing a mortgage with Rick, we would not even consider going anywhere else!”
