So let me add another review on Trident Home Loans. When Marty says they are here to serve, they truly mean it.
My wife, decided we should purchase a new home being built on our same street. My son gets to stay with his friends, my wife gets the house and options she wants and I get...the payment (happy wife, happy life). I contacted Marty and he linked me up with his ace closer Jennifer. Throughout the entire process (and it is a process), Jennifer was there at every turn...weekends, late nights, she is truly dedicated. We decided to use my VA and put down enough to keep the loan under the Jumbo threshold. Expect to provide a LOT of paperwork, not a knock against Trident, just a fact of the VA and the Underwriters given the housing crash in 2007. There were a few nit-noid items that were requested that were somewhat off the wall (for some stocks and FUNDS I own the underwriter requested a detailed prospectus and K-1s...hard to get K-1s when you own .001% of a giant fund), Marty stepped in to inject some common sense back into the process.
Everything was on track until the builder missed the planned completion date by over three weeks and put my rate lock in jeopardy. My wife was so fed up with the builder she was ready to walk away from the deal, Marty and Jennifer kept the train moving. If you folks don't know, extending a rate lock can be expensive and Marty did it out of pocket even though the delay was caused by the builder. To complicate matters even more, the day before closing my wife became very ill and had to have emergency surgery, which again put the entire process in jeopardy. not only did Marty and Jennifer help keep the process moving, the wife of a retired vet works in Marty's office and she reached out to provide meals and any help while my wife was recovering. Luckily my wife made a fast recovery and we were able to close on the house a few days later.
From top to bottom, Trident is a class act full of people who get the military and will go the extra mile for you.
