George Souto - Always Willing to "Lend" A Hand

Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

George SoutoLast week I had a mortgage problem that was troubling one of my sellers and I was having problems getting a straight answer as to what was actual fact when it came to FHA guidelines in this situation. 

Once again Active Rain became my saving grace.  I turned to George Souto who was more than happy to look into this situation for me.  He didn't have the answer right away, since he didn't deal with this particular situation on a regular basis if at all.  Even though it was one day before the 3 day holiday weekend he was going to look things up and get back to me as soon as possible without blinking an eye. 

This is what I have come to find is normal procedure for George Souto.  When you need a mortgage person for your clients in Connecticut George Souto should be your go to person. Thanks again George!

Debra, this is a great way to endorse someone at ActiveRain. This proves, once again, we are a self-less community, ready to help other members! And what can I say about George? He has been a 'mortgage guide' for me and I wish he had license in MA!

George really knows his stuff, I have referred clients to him in the past that need a CHFA mortgage. The support that is available throughout the AR community is amazing.

Make it a great weekend!

Debbie, George helped me out as well when I had an FHA guideline question.  He followed up with an email and phone call to make sure I understood the issue.  I've known George for quite a while now and he's always been eager to help and offer advice...George is one of the good ones!  Best of all...he can take a joke.
