I hear lots of agents complain about mortgage brokers. Some are described as incompetent, others are disliked because of excessive fees. I have worked with some horrible mortgage brokers (some horrible direct lenders too). However, I have also worked with an absolutely, fabulous mortgage broker, Bridget McGhee!
I met Bridget McGhee of Allied Home Mortgage through active rain. We met for lunch and instantly we hit it off. I liked the way she did business and decided I would give her a try and send her a client. The client loved her! She wasn't able to qualify to purchase at the time but the client appreciated how Bridget took the time to ensure that she understood the mortgage process and also the fact that she was willing to work with her to get her ready to buy.
Since then, I have referred several people to Bridget. Each time, I hear nothing but glowing reports from my clients. Even one client who fired me :-( had the good sense to stick with Bridget who went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that the client was well represented. Bridget even continued my tradition of donating to charity following that transaction.
On Thursday, the original client that I had sent to Bridget over a year ago finally closed on her home. I was not able to attend the closing but my partner felt that Bridget was wonderful and that she helped ensure that the client completely understood what she was signing. Can you believe that Bridget attends her closings?
Bridget is very knowledgeable about mortgages. However, much of her charm is in her warm, personable manner. Clients are immediately comfortable with her and come to value and trust her opinion. Very quickly, Bridget feels like a friend!
If you are looking for a mortgage professional in Maryland I would highly recommend that you give Bridget McGhee a call.
