“Jamie was fantastic. We met with a few mortgage brokers and chose Jamie because of the rate he secured for us as well as his genuine personality and communicative style. He was very open with us and he made us feel like we mattered to him. In fact, he presented us with our initial rate and then came back to us a day or two later with an even better option which we really appreciated. He was determine to get us the best deal and to make the process as smooth as possible. Throughout the entire closing process, Jamie kept us informed on where things stood and what needed to be done, which we appreciated even more as we wanted to close in a short time frame. I know he worked very hard to make that happen. Jamie was always cheery and willing to answer questions or explain things in greater detail if need be. We also felt like he was available 24/7 which was wonderful for those random evening thoughts/worries. All in all, we really enjoyed working with Jamie and Bank of the James Mortgage and would highly recommend them!” - Courtney B.

Note from Jamie: We met Sonny and Elaine as they lost confidence in their initial lender as they neared their closing date. We jumped in with both feet and helped them close on time with only 2 weeks’ time remaining until closing. It takes a village to make things like this possible and all of the team made it happen to get them in their new home!
