I am pleased to recommend Christine Chiavaras, with First Choice Financial, as a lender who understands todays intricate rules and process for not only the buyer but a seller as well. My experience with Christine was as a listing broker for a perperty sold by a co-broker. Christine kept me well informed of the buyer's process, making it easy for me to also keep my seller informed. It was obvious, at the closing table, that the buyer was well pleased, also, with Christine and how she secured just the perfect loan for the buyer
