Refi on log home
After 4 attempts trying to refi our log home we were about to give up. The main problem seemed to be comps. Interbank and BoA are clueless when it comes to log homes.I came upon this site and posted my ordeal and Barb answered right away. She knew exactly what to do and how to do it. Barb went the extra mile for us and we are lucky we had her on our side. If you need a PROFESSIONAL, look no further. Thanks Barb!

I recommend Barb Lanis
I would highly recommend Barb Lanis. We had been trying to refinance our underwater mortgage (we bought in 2008) for two years. No one would help us, even with the HARP program because we had lender-paid PMI. When I found Barb and she told me she could do it, I was a little skeptical at first. But we closed last week and and we are very happy. Barb was incredibly helpful and professional. She kept us up to date in the process, explained everything thoroughly, and we closed in less time than anticipated.Thank you, Barb!!!!

The best Mortgage Broker I know
I would like to share an important resource with you for your mortgage needs. I know Barb as a friend and as a business professional. When my husband and I were looking to refinance, we naturally went back to our previous lander. I knew that if I will do my homework I will be able to obtain a better rate. I called my good friend Barb and ask her to check on rates. Barb was able to offer us the rate that I was hoping for and to make the process a walk in the park. Barb is able to offer consumers more choices in loan programs and products than traditional mortgage lenders. Many of my clients require a mortgage broker; she has consistently demonstrated the same courtesy and professionalism as she showed us. She is consistently offers consumers superior expertise and assistance in getting through the tedious and complicated loan process. When I am asked if I know a good mortgage broker, Barb is the one I send my clients, friends and family to see. She is the right person for the job.
