The Best Lender I've Worked With

You know as a real estate agent, I am constantly meeting and working with mortgage lenders.  Everyone is nice and great and knowledgeable until they aren't lol
Well, I had a transaction that was dead in the water because the buyer's original lender fell off the face of the earth without telling us he was leaving. Well let me tell you about Debbie Hukill of Starkey Mortgage.

The buyer was set to close on the 12th of the month and around the 7th *Poof* *Vamoose* the lender was gone...I mean dude put on Harry Potter's Invisibility Cloak!  What am I supposed to do with this?!?!?!? My client is calling me for answer that I don't have.  I went to their office and the branch manager had no sense of urgency and like most managers, didn't seem to know where to start.  Okay, think Ayesha, think...and just like that the LORD to call Debbie.  I called, gave her the quick rundown of events.  She met my buyer the same day and we were clear to close within...

wait for it...

sit down before you read further...

about 8 business days!
Say What!?!?!?

Yep, she worked it out!  She came in, took the loan from another company (who didn't send over the FHA file for several days) and still got it closed before the end of the month!

Now, if you have never had deal flat-line 50 yards from the finish line, congrats, keep up the good work.  This was the first time it was a lender issue and I'm so thankful for Debbie and her team!
