Word on the Street...

"For years, my husband and I debated whether we would remodel our home or move. Our desire was to remodel, but we just didn't know where to begin. One of the biggest deterrents was the financing. We had no idea how to finance such a large project and weren't educated on the options available to us. But when we found Theresa Springer, it was like finding the key to building our dream home. Theresa clearly explained all of our options and walked us through every step of the project. Even when we were well on our way, she was available for questions and checked-in on a regular basis to make sure everything was running smoothly. Theresa was genuinely interested in and dedicated to our project and took pride in following it through to the end. Without Theresa's guidance and commitment, we may have sold our house and missed out on the beautiful home it is today. Thanks a million Theresa!" -- Amy & Paul W.
