What It's Like To Work With Us
a. No Call Centers Period: Don't waste time speaking with someone in a different time zone. Your local Loan Officer is your single point of contact. Your Loan Officer knows your situation, and they are there to guide you through the process from day one through to closing.
b. Closing Dates You Can Trust: Your closing date is too important to leave to chance. When OVM Financial gives a closing date, it's one you can rely on. With 20-Day Clear, OVM Financial is eliminating last minute stress from the home buying experience. No more frantic phone calls, and no more frustration. By getting a clear to close 10 days early, you and your real estate agent gain peace of mind knowing that your transaction will close as smoothly as planned. Breathe easy with the right team of lenders by your side from start to finish. At OVM Financial, we're closing at the speed of life.
d. Call, Email, or Text: We are committed to being available to you throughout the process. Communicate with your loan officer how and when you'd like.
