"I have used Mari now for almost 27 years and she has never let me down. If she says it will close, it closes. If he says it’s done, it is. She always has documents to title on time and closes loans as per contract – most of the time we can do it early. She has more energy and experience than most people I have known in the business. Very committed and passionate about lending and getting the client the BEST rate and terms possible." - Michael, Realtor® , Alain Pinel
