Yes! Ray is very patient and willing to explain loan products and financing to my clients and that’s important to me. I’ve had other lenders rush through and treat people in a dismissive way. Ray answers calls and makes time to assure you during the process even when things aren’t perfect. I’ll continue to refer clients to Ray and FirstBank!

Mr. Cottrell was very helpful and informative throughout the process. He answered every question we presented to him- no matter how silly they may have seemed. He helped relieve our stress and anxiousness by detailing what to expect throughout the transaction. Because of his expertise, my husband and I were prepared.
