Kevin represented my client who has been a friend of almost 40 years. It was her first time buying a home and I can't speak highly enough on her behalf. She raved about him and how patient he was and it was a pleasure working with him to get this deal done. Was a very smooth sail to the closing table and that is in large part to Kevin's efforts! Much appreciated sir and look forward to the next one buddy!
Kevin represented a very dear friend of mine of almost 40 years. I have a preferred lender at Guild named Melissa Keyser that I have used on several deals. If I wasn't already pretty much partnered up with Melissa, or if there ever becomes a time when Melissa is not available and I need a Guild lender, Kevin would definitely be at the top of my list of go-to's! Was a pleasure and seeing my friend on closing day with the emotion she had was something I will never forget!
