  • I have used Linda before when I first got a loan.  She did an outstanding job in getting me a loan with no PMI.  When it came to refinancing, she was the first person I called and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend her for any of your mortgage needs.

    -- Carroll and Steve Connell

    I have worked with Linda Zaiss for several years and she has never let me or my clients down. I had a client purchasing a home using their own lender. On Monday, the week we were suppose to close, their loan documents came to title with different terms than expected. I called Linda Monday afternoon, she was able to get the loan underwritten and doc's in title by Wednesday, the loan funded on Thursday so we could close on our original close of escrow date, Friday. Linda always goes above and beyond and gets the job done regardless of any challenges that come up on any loan. She does what she says she’ll do and she’ll does it with a good attitude and a high level of service and professionalism.
