Mortgage and Lending with American National Bank & Trust NMLS #268590

I am an avid #FaceBook reader and checker.   It's how I keep up with my grandbabies.   I get to see them in person this weekend for my youngest one's first birthday party.   Oh goody !   Anyway, I was checking my FaceBook page on Monday morning and I found this awaiting me.


K. S.03/25/2016

A HUGE THANK YOU to Deanna Early for getting my loan approval letter to my Realtor in LESS than 24 hours when the mortgage departments of the credit union that I've been banking with for over 18 years & the Bank that I've been banking with for over 9 years couldn't even call me back in 2 weeks (and still counting).


You're amazing Deanna & I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a mortgage.





Imagine my surprise when I saw it.   It was out there in cyberspace floating around for anyone to see.   My client told me they were pleased but  WOW,  what a note !   When a client has a difficulty with their situation, I often make it my own.   There were problems but they weren't insurmountable.

The primary concern when I got a call out of the blue was time.   There was a deadline clause for financing in the contract and it was coming on at light speed.   This person was upset because they were going to lose the property if the approval letter was not received before the fast approaching deadline.

The person was not, nor had they ever been, a client of mine.   As stated in their comments, they had tried to get financing through their credit union and their Bank (not mine).   After two weeks, they were desperate because they had not even gotten a return phone call from either one.

It just so happens, there's this thing called FaceBook.   I am on it and so is this person.   As it turns out, we have some mutual friends.   We have seen each other online before and even communicated a time or two but, . . . . . we did not KNOW  each other.   They had also seen ME on #Linkedin.

In a panic, with the clock racing toward the deadline, the person thought, what the heck; I'll call and ask if there is anything she can do to help me.   They figured if they were going to lose the property, they at least were going to go down fighting.   So I am sitting in my office and the phone rings.

Uh-huh, OK, I understand, . . . . . and how long do we have ?   Do you have this, this, this and that; YES.   Email them to me.   What about that, that and that ?   OK, get those to me too.   My computer lit up as my inbox filled with responses and documentation.   Knowing we had a deadline, I got busy.

Lo and behold, with the borrower having the documents ready, sending them immediately and being able to reach their Realtor, who was also very helpful; we pulled it off and the approval letter arrived in the nick of time.

Don't you love it when a plan comes together ?   I do !   Folks, service is the name of my business and I do my absolute best to serve my client's needs, even if it's a little stressful some times.   YES, we got in under the wire on this one but if you are having problems, don't wait;  CALL ME !   Let's solve your problems ahead of time  with financing because, . . . . .

Good morning Deanna. A well deserved testimonial, but you shouldn't be surprised when you give your clients outstanding service.
