"The Scott’s NFM team made the mortgage process so easy amd painless. Barbara went out of her way to quickly forge sticking points that woukd of taken us weeks to straighten out on our own. They do most of the heavy work up front, that way from there it gets easier and easier as the process goes on. In practical terms: Scott, Barb and the team had us clear to close 2-1/2 weeks before our closing date! Unheard of in our books! Not to mention saved us almost $70/month on our mortgage!"
