What our clients have to say...
Matt & Christy Culli, Clients
"We used Tim on our first mortgage with our very first home. As you can imagine, we were extremely nervous and unprepared for everything that was about to happen. Tim walked us through the entire process and made us feel completely comfortable with our home buying experience. Tim was always available to answer questions and guide us through each and every step of the process. Because the process went so smoothly with Tim, we didn't hesitate to call him two years later when we found out that we were relocating. Tim will always be our first choice for mortgage lending. We will recommend Tim to anyone who asks!"
Carson and Rebecca Weber, Clients

Tim Duvall's professional and knowledgeable expertise led us through the maze of options, gave both of us a firm grip on the loan process, and saved us money in the long run. We wholeheartedly recommend Tim for his integrity, knowledge, and skill throughout the lending process."
Eric & Brenda Kneifel, Clients
"Not only was Tim able to get my wife and I an amazing deal on our mortgage, but he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable as well. He made the buying process simple and stress free for us, and he even taught us a few things along the way!"
Sean & Jennifer Johnson, Clients
"Tim did a great job helping my wife and me with our first home mortgage. His conduct was very professional and prompt. Tim really helped us understand our mortgage and made the whole process very smooth and easy."
