Home Equity Loans is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to speak with an actual person After repeated attempts, I give up! I have called several times and "all of our loan specialists" are always unavailable. Leaving a message for someone to call me back at their convenience, not mine, is poor customer service. However, I did leave messages hoping that the call back would come at a time when I was able to answer. Guess what? No one has ever returned my calls. I'll move on to another lender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staff, incredibly fast and organized! The online process is super easy. They spell everything out for you perfectly. They respond quickly and really do a great job of keeping the process moving forward. The paperwork can be done via DocuSign or in person, super convenient. I will never go anywhere else!
