Jeffrey M. - Lindenhurst, IL | Sep 2021
This is my second time working with Tony Piotrowski on new home financing. It was a no brainer, as he made the first go around so simple. As usual, Tony made a breeze of a normally stressful situation. He was in constant communication, always available on a moments notice. He ensured all documentation and coordination was completed as it came in. There were SNAFU’s in many aspects of our/buy sell, but never an issue on GR’s end, all credit to Tony and his team! I’ve seen secondhand some of the issues most homebuyers face when not working with a knowledgeable team, and I’m super thankful to have Tony and GR help me a second time. GR is great, but without Tony I’m not sure I would have used them again. Couldn’t be more grateful.
