Here What Clients are Saying
Dear Shane, I want to thank you for outstanding performance regarding our recent VA loan closing of a home purchased by our mutual client. This particular loan was lengthy complicated by the personal issues of my client and his deployment to the Middle East during the transaction. Your tenacity and additional efforts by your team drove the success of this closing and made the dream come true for my client and his family.
My VA clients in particular feel immediately at ease with you due to your personal military service and veteran status. Accessibility is so important for the client and me as well. Your knowledgeable team returns phone calls and emails and answers questions quickly and thoroughly. Issues and problems that arise are dealt with competently to keep our transactions on track. I believe our mutual clients feel safe in the fact that we have their back and are always working in their best interest. My transactions are processed with efficiency and speed and most times are ready to close well in advance of the contract closing date . On time closings are particularly important to our relocating clients with specific reporting and moving dates.
I refer my family, friends and clients to you and Legacy Group for competitive loan products and standout service by you and your team. I admire your desire to constantly innovate and incorporate new ways to better serve our clients and the military community.
I look forward to a long and successful working relationship with you and your team.

Thank you. Thank you so, so very much. Have a great evening. Spend the money this transaction brought you in good health. I will look forward to doing business with you in the future. Nathan Bishop, Current Client -Nathan Bishop, John L, Scott
Having worked with numerous lenders over the last decade in Kitsap County I have to tell you Shane you have really made a huge impression. In working with a VA buyer, getting to within a week of closing and they were told they had failed financing! You were able to take the file, made it happen and they closed on time! I don t know how it was even possible! With millions in production I can honestly say from much experience you have proved to be a valued asset. Thank you for taking a disastrous transaction and turning it into a success! -Deanna Dempsey McCulloch, John L
Thanks again for your patience with Heather, and for continuing to "nip at the heels" of this issue until it was resolved! I really appreciate how you put yourself in her shoes and kept digging until you found resolution, and then acted with urgency to make it come together for her. This was a very unique situation, and I'm sure other people would have given up!
Thanks for being the customer advocate!
