Rob Eddie was our guy..and let me tell you...I was nervous from a bad experience I had with a prior home purchase..went in guarded...very quickly he made me feel very comfortable and was so on top of everything! Closed a week early, took my stupid phone calls on Sunday..made the process so so easy!! And oh yeah by the way...when we were at closing the sellers realtor told us, when they seen Rob Eddie with Northern had our loan...they said they knew our offer was solid and all the rest of the process would go seamlessly..cause of the reputation they have!!! Thanks so much!!
