Teresa was so wonderful and quick to respond. This was our first home purchase so we were very unfamiliar with the process. She was very patient with me and answered any questions with care I had promptly. I'm very thankful I used Teresa and BackSouth. Definitely made our first experience seamless.

Crissy J.

Thank you so much, Teresa, for taking the time to stop by our closing. Thank you also for the lovely "welcome home" gift! Each of those items will surely be put to use in the next few days! We can't thank you enough for all of your help throughout this process, and we look forward to working with you again someday (not for a while, though!). We will definitely refer you to anyone who inquires about a reliable lender.

Melissa and Steven D.

You cannot believe the shock I am still in, and how blessed we are to have closed on our first house June 2014. I have never worked with any one or any company who really was thorough and who cared about my individual needs and concerns as much as you did. I was so stressed about getting this house, and my ability to even qualify. You made sure that every i was dotted and every t was crossed so that when my file went to underwriting I had no glitches. I can't begin to tell you how amazing you were to reach out to me the few times I doubted this process because I couldn't get the necessary paperwork in time or I found it difficult to understand all the numbers. Thank you again and again and again. You made this first time home buyer experience, a learning one, and a great experience to work with you. I would recommend you to anyone who needed a loan to purchase a house. My husband and I will never forget the dream you made a reality, and it brings tears to my eyes knowing how you held my hand every step of the way. Thank you again, and we LOVE our new home. Teresa you are the BEST of the BEST!

Devin S.

Teresa was readily available to answer any questions and she offered great guidance throughout the entire home buying (loan) process. Thank you!

W. G.

I especially appreciated the communication from Teresa. There was no point at which I felt like I had to ask, 'What's going on?' because I was kept updated on the progress of my loan application.

Roderick T.

Your diligence, and personal attention meant so much to me. I am so grateful and so thankful for this opportunity! You have made my dream come true!!!

Devin S.

Teresa has been my go-to mortgage person for about 20 years. Her level of commitment to my success and happiness is above and beyond! I have had the pleasure of working with her on the purchase of four homes. Her knowledge of the business, documentation requirements, and closing abilities are top notch. I am Team Downey for life.

Amy G.

Purchasing a home can be stressful, and I had no problem showing how much I was feeling it. The combination of “life” and purchasing a home made aspects of the experience a little less exciting. However, Teresa and the team remained poised, professional, and HUMAN! I didn’t feel like I was another loan number. Now that life has settled down for my husband and me, I truly want to thank Teresa for everything! You were a Godsend in more ways than you’ll know!

LaToya N.

The questions I had were answered promptly. I've not experienced the home buying process in over 20 years and lots of things have changed. Teresa and her team made that transition much more clear and helpful.
