I have enjoyed working with Lester in buying a home. From our first meeting I was impressed with answering my questions, asking questions about my needs in home (e.g., budget, what I wanted in a home, financing needs, etc.). He responded immediately to my questions, explaining using examples for me to understand what he was sharing with me. Lester made the entire process of home buying very comfortable and easy where I felt confident at every step of the process. He is a blessing in my quest to home ownership. When I asked, Lester provided lists of handy folks, painter, and house cleaners. He helped me make connections with a loan officer at my credit union. Lester was easy to understand and work with. I will refer Lester to others with confidence without hesitation.
