In what we hope is our final home purchase, we are pleased to say that everything went smoothly. We were absolutely thrilled to work with Steve Peterson of Sierra Pacific Mortgage. He met with us, presented the list of items we needed to apply for a loan, followed up in an expedient way on any outstanding issues and kept us informed as to the progress. Although we had a 45 day escrow, Steve was prepared and we had loan approval in less than 30 days. We were very impressed. We would certainly recommend him and his professional approach to anyone. In an environment where we hear so many stories about lengthy refinances, problems with loans, or lost paperwork, it is nice to know we have someone working for us, ensuring our financing is solid and secure.
