I don’t make it a habit to give testimonials. But in Mark’s case I welcome the opportunity to recommend him. My wife Thea and I have refinanced several times with Mark over the years. It has always been a pleasure to work with Mark; each time it was like reconnecting with an old friend. Mark is personable and clearly dedicated to serving the customer. I relied on his knowledge, experience, and good advice and I couldn’t be happier that I did.
