When asked how her new HVAC system was working on a 100 degree day, Homeowner Margo Maxwell stated, " I am as cool as Elvis!"

We just bought our first home and Neighborworks made it possible! In this unforgiving market, buying a home is a challenge for us locals.

If it wasn't for the many home loan programs and options they have, we just wouldn't have been able to do it....or would have been house poor.

The mortgage team is amazing and was always available to me for my many questions. 100% I would recommend exploring your home loan or refinancing needs with them. -Melissa Wedman 

After my family and I moved here from Africa, we lived in a Neighborworks apartment complex then worked closely with Patrick on getting a loan for a new construction home. The People at Neighborworks were very nice from beginning to end, going above and beyond. -Samson
