Teri was the 3rd agent we contacted to refinance. We were told by the other banks we couldn't refinance since our house was built on a land lease. Teri got it done and her team was very helpful. We closed a few weeks later and have a much lower payment and interest rate since before. Thank you Team Teri :)
