I purchased my first home through Rob and because of his excellent service, I decided to use him a second time. Rob helps eliminate the stress of purchasing a home. Both of my purchases went very smoothly, and I always felt well taken care of. He doesn't ever make you feel pressured, and always makes you feel comfortable enough to ask any and all questions you may have. I would highly recommend Rob Eddie at Northern Mortgage if you're looking to purchase a home!

Can I just mention how fantastic Courtney is? Seriously. I've been in finance for more than a decade, and I've got to say that EVERY person I've EVER sent her way has had the same results as the people smart enough to choose her without knowing me. AMAZING. Not only is she amazing, her team is well equipped to assist you in every possible situation. Seriously, she will look at the whole scenario, and tell you what all of your options are, while highlighting the one(s) best for you. She's a servant leader with an amazing gift. See Courtney for all of your mortgage needs!
