Our experience with Elaine as our Mortgage Consultant was wonderful. Elaine is very knowledgeable, experienced and an all over warm person. Elaine really knows how to make you feel comfortable and she keeps you informed every step of the way. When I think about SunTrust, I think about Elaine Stroman. (Dennison & Marlene Smith, N. Babylon, Long Island, NY)
There are no words to describe the fantastic job that Elaine Stroman did on getting me my mortgage. The original bank I started with was unable to complete my mortgage application and my niece, Sheena Dixon was able to direct my paperwork to SunTrust and upon receipt elaine was able to turn everything around in a timely matter where I was still on the original 30 day time frame to close. She was quick to return my calls regardless of the time and she helped to ease the anxiety and frustration I had. Thanks Elaine for an excellent job well done. You're the best and I appreciate everything you did to make me become a first time homeowner. May God continue to Bless you and SunTrust. (Dorothy O Lewis, Riverhead LI, Suffolk Cty, NY)
