Anthony helped us get a loan for a home in Grand Rapids. He went above and beyond everything we were expecting and made our move from Tennessee as easy as we could have hoped for. This was our first home purchase, and I thank Anthony for helping our family move into our perfect home and starting our life in Michigan. I would recommend him and this company to anyone looking for help with their move. Thanks again! You

Josh made the mortgage process as seamless as possible for us first time home buyers! He did all of the work and kept us updated along the way! (And we had a lot of questions / concerns). If you are looking for someone with years of experience and knowledge who will take care of you, look no further than Joshua Nawrot and his team at Northern Mortgage!
