A lot has changed in the mortgage industry since Thistle Financial first opened its doors in 2005. Whether it's changes in loan underwriting requirements, new loan stimulus programs, or niche lender products, we know the market. We're committed to leveraging our experience to work with our clients to get a great rate and ensure the loan process is smooth.
It was a pleasure to work with Mark. He was a pillar of calm in what was a somewhat whirlwind experience for us... I know he cared about our situation like it was his own, and therefore worked really hard on our behalf.
