"Ryan was referred to me by our realtor. He told us we were approved and was really attentive to our needs. In a lapse of judgement and under the advice of others I allowed the seller to run our app through another approved lender. The sellers approved lender denied our mortgage app and wasted about a month of our time asking for coborrowers and telling us we didnt make enough. I called Ryan back and explained the stumbling block they couldnt work around. Ryan's response was "No problem" To make a long story short, dont waste time with lenders who cant think outside the box. Call Ryan first and no matter how tempting it is to use a lender with more incentives for the buyer, stick with Ryan. If you got denied by another company, ditch them and give Ryan at Primary Residential a call. He gets the job done and is available round the clock including weekends and even returned my calls while he was vacationing. The man is, by far, head and shoulders above other professional loan officers. Dont let the others tell you that dream home is unattainable, Ryan gets results."

"Ryan and his team made the jntire loan process a breeze. I was so intimidated about it especially since I am a small business owner and I was amazed at how on top of everything they were and also how much work they did for me on their end."

"Recently, while performing the sometimes arduous task of searching for a home, I noticed a website for Ryan Sandell's team at NFM lending. My realtor and my friends highly recommended him and his team to help with obtaining a loan. I applied for pre-qualification and Ryan responded almost immediately securing my confidence that the team at NFM would be the way to go. During the sometimes tricky business of undergoing credit checks and supplying financial information, Ryan was there to smooth the way. My dreams of buying a house in Phoenix, Arizona became the reality of pride in home ownership through Ryan and his team. Thank you to all the hard working people at NFM Phoenix, AZ and NFM Linthicum, MD. I highly recommend you with ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!"
