  • Micah was great in advising me with my existing loan. I'm always hesitant to have these discussion but Micah was consultative, informative and not pushy. He has your best interest in mind. I'll be sure to circle back with him when the time is right.

  • 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!

  • Some of the most professional, courteous, and kind people I have had the pleasure of dealing with. There is no pressure from them, and they advocate so well for you. I have worked with a number of other lenders and Leahy Lending is hands down the best in every way. I recommend them for any mortgage or refinance.

  • HomeTown bent over backwards to get me into my house. There were a number of set backs and delays that caused stress on my end so my only constructive feedback would be that I wish they had been a little better at communicating. Outside of that they did get me taken care of and into my home

  • Ryan and his team are simply top notch. From pre-approval to closing we have received nothing but stellar service and frequent updates. As first time home buyers, we were not sure what we were getting into, but Ryan helped us figure it out quickly and easily. Even our realtor said that Ryan and his team were the easiest lenders they have ever worked with. I will definitely be recommending Ryan to my friends and family.
