From our first conversation she explained each and every option that was available to me; I never felt pressured into any decision. All of my questions were handled in a professional and timely manner. All in all, I really couldn't imagine my home buying process being any easier. Even now that the deal is done I would still feel 100% comfortable calling Caroline with any questions. I was happy and satisfied with my decision to use First Federal Lakewood for my mortgage needs. . Thanks for everything Caroline!”
