This was my first time going through the process of buying a house and Erik was very helpful and understanding. No question was too stupid to ask. He wouldn’t just send me a text, he would call me and help me out. One minor setback did cause me to have to pay a bit out of pocket, but overall I think he was great.

Marcele J. | Apr 2020
Erik Williams is great mortgage broker, and he always has great advice for his clients. When rates were higher he recommended against going for a home equity loan. Many mortgage brokers would just tell you to sign on the line. He is always available for you, and prompt getting you taken care of. Erik is the best mortgage broker I have ever come across.
Kent W. | Apr 2020
Erick went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable on the day of closing, bringing everything out to our car for signing. During these difficult times, we were never uncomfortable.

Christopher L. | Apr 2020
I came to Erik after my 1st lender wasted my time and let me down. After my first conversation he let me know that he will be able to get the deal closed. Throughout the underwriting process he kept me in the loop on what was going on and what I needed to do to assure everything will stay on track. Erik always answered all my calls and texts in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Erik. He will get you your dream home! Thanks again Erik! -Melvin

Erik has excellent customer service skills and a lot of patience. He hangs in there through everything, all the questions, paperwork, inevitable frustrations and more paperwork. His golden characteristic is supreme patience. He is a professional gentleman, and very responsive. If only Stearns and the many other lenders can be as good as he is, the world would be a better place to do business in.
Nizam V. | Sep 2019
Erik had a noteworthy experience with me. I was dealing with a top 10 loan producer in the USA with Guaranteed Rate. He had me at 5.5% and a appraisal of $215K. Eric investigated my deal, shared with me why Stearns was a better choice. He coached me through the appraisal process. We took a 11 month old set of comps, let them expire, got a new appraisal and went from $215K to $315K! Erik literally increased my net worth $100K in 2 weeks or less. Who does that???? Erik! He really helped me out.

Erik was very helpful and explained the process thoroughly. Most of the paperwork was done through the Stearns app which made it much easier than printing and scanning everything in.

I've known Erik Williams for several years now. He is the consummate professional and will always tell you the truth about home lending and mortgages. All of us need that "guy" in our pocket when things get complicated...Erik is exactly that person. When undergoing the biggest purchase of a lifetime...don't fall prey to those who claim to be bannermen of truth...just call Erik and he will take excellent care of you.
Alton D. | Mar 2019
ERIK he made a great. Each hurdle that came around he was able to tackle it. We had a plan although I wanted him to talk to me every hour; that wasn't realistic but he always communicated when he could he just never gave up on us and most of all for us. He did a great job and the processor Beata was awesome that's why my experience was so great.
