"I wanted to let you know how awesome your employees are! Jeanne is a fantastic A/E and we love Dana as a junior U/W! She is great and works were diligently and fast! Without Freedom, I would not be a successful LO. Keep up the great work! "
- M. Stribling, Covington, LA

"As a realtor, I was not quite certain what to expect since this was my first TRID loan. I've been hearing how difficult the new process would be. I am overly impressed that a contract was executed on October 8, 2015 and closed and funded 23 days later on October 30, 2015. This was OUTSTANDING. Please share this letter with Freedom Mortgage. The Freedom Account Executive that handled this transaction was always available for quick answers to questions and stayed on top of the file every step of the way. I appreciate all the help from all the people involved and very pleased with the level of communication required for the new CD preparation process from the Representative at Freedom Mortgage. Without the hard work of the team at Freedom, I am certain we would not have closed in 23 days! Simply Amazing!"
- Lori S., Texas

"There’s nothing like completing an application on a VA purchase on January 12th and having the final approval 9 days later. I love seeing that."
- Cole D. , AZ

"I wanted to tell you that I am closing my first TRID loan...I really like the process! My purchase was cleared yesterday morning and my CD was sent late yesterday... Really can't ask for anything more...such nice people. (You know I love the closing department). Looking forward to sending loans to FMC! Happy New Year."
- Mary D. , Charlotte, NC

"Everyone hears when there are problems with loans and the process to close them, but not enough hear when a loan goes through without a hitch. Last Friday, I closed my first TRID loan with Freedom Mortgage. As we have been preparing for this inevitable change for years, I was extremely apprehensive about the process. I wanted to write a quick review on our first TRID closing with Freedom Mortgage. Freedom ROCKED this loan. I know both we the broker and you the lender learned a lot, but I never in a million years thought we could pull this off on time, let alone 1 1/2 weeks early. The buyer is beyond happy with her mortgage experience, the buyer's agent is completely singing our praises to her broker and fellow agents and this broker here is sold on the ease with which Freedom can pull off a TRID loan. Thanks to all who helped make this process a breeze and for putting up with a very anxious broker. You have a fan for sure."
- Janet T., Texas

"I just wanted to thank you and everyone on the Freedom team for your outstanding service on our clients recent VA Purchase. This VA Jumbo was submitted, approved and cleared to close in 11 business days. With our industry being as challenging as it can be - this was a pleasant surprise! In addition, having closing instructions a week before closing makes EVERYONE look good - and we like to look good to our clients! Keep up the good work!"
- Lori M, Fairfax, VA

"I wanted to send a quick note acknowledging all the staff that was involved with this purchase loan. We got this loan submitted on 02/05/2014 and the whole time was a very smooth process. We received constant updates and are able to meet our closing date with no problem, as purchases always become very stressful. We were glad to go into this weekend knowing our deal will be done and all parties involved are thrilled! Thanks again Freedom!"
- Adam M, Cincinnati, OH

I've been a mortgage broker for 20 years and this is the quickest turn time I've ever seen. Keep up the good work! You are making me look good!"
