If they walk away from their closing feeling great about the process Dart Bank has given them, then they will be comfortable referring family and friends. It is about trusting their lender and making sure they are placed in the proper product for their needs.
Maria worked as the Education Director at Center for Financial Health for five years facilitating eight-hour classes that allowed the students to receive a certificate for down payment assistance through MSHDA, City of Lansing and Ingham County Land Bank. Maria has worked with many first-time home buyers, government loans, construction loans, home equity lines of credit along with rehab products Dart Bank offers along with many other products to fit the client’s needs.
It is always best to give your clients the options that would best fit their needs and let them choose what feels comfortable. One of Maria’s sayings are, “Don’t live to make your mortgage payment, live in a home that allows you to go on vacations and still go out to eat comfortably”.
