  • 5 star review  We worked with James B and his team and they were extremely professional every step of the way. They were extremely patient and always available to answer any questions we had. They helped make my closing process as seamless as possible. Thanks James and the Homeward team for making our purchase seem less stressful than it could have been!

  • 5 star review  I had an amazing experience with Ryan and the Leahy team. They made the entire process easy and stress free. I never had a moment of worry while working with them as they were very tentative and were sure to answer all questions I had through the process. I would DEFINITELY use then again in the future and would recommend for others to do the same.

  • 5 star review  Without any doubts, Ryan and his team are the best in the area! They are thorough, professional and great to work with. They are honest and forthright - no games. They kept us informed at every step of the sale and answered every question (Trust me it was not easy, as the purchase was done remotely!) They guided us through the whole process and stick to the schedule. In addition to that, she was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions. This was a huge help for us, as we seemed to always have questions. This is why we can recommend Ryan and his team to anyone!

  • 5 star review  This is the third time we have used Ryan Leahy to fund our home purchase or do a re-fi. Each time he gets better. This last re-fi application process was the easiest, user-friendly, process of any mortgage loan process we have ever had the pain of going through. Ryan is easy to deal with, responsive, honest, and ethical! We will use him if the need ever arises, again. Top-Notch stellar service and very good rates and costs.

  • 5 star review  Leahy lending is great to work with. They are very responsive and do their best to get the best rates. Micah in particular has been very helpful and educated me at various steps. Would do business again and highly recommend them.
