I just wanted to thank you for all of your help during the purchase of our new home. It was a very complicated process and the staff at Stonegate Mortgage was extremely patient and helpful through the entire process. I was not the only person who was impressed; the seller’s agent for Century 21 mentioned that she was so happy with their services that she will be giving his contact information to her future clients.
