He answered all of our questions thoroughly….If you are considering a new home or plan to upgrade your current mortgage, do yourself a favor and talk to Ed Gillespie…you won’t find a mortgage professional more committed to finding the right mortgage for you, and integrating it into your overall financial plan. Give Ed a call today.”--Gary W., Cameron Park mortgage client
"Ed Gillespie worked with me and my husband to obtain a loan for my ‘first-time buyer' house. Ed was more than just my loan broker. Ed followed up every conversation on the phone with an email, detailing all the points that were covered, forwarding any necessary paperwork, etc. He never failed to impress me with his professionalism, yet he always was able to show his sense of humor and humanity. When I was getting frustrated with the selling bank, he was there with assurances and guidance. I would recommend Ed Gillespie as a Mortgage Consultant to anyone wishing to purchase a home. Couldn't do better!"--Pam C., Isleton mortgage client
