Testimonials

  • I chose Marka because she was the first to respond to a Lending Tree inquiry and she impressed me with her knowledge and savvy advice on how to accomplish my goal for this loan. I was trying to help my daughter buy this house and she worked hard to make that happen, but for reasons beyond her control, I ended up the borrower. The complications with my daughter delayed the process, but she made it up in time to finish the loan on time. It closed today and we are all happy with Marka’s efforts to get us the best deal and to take a personal interest in trying to help us.

  • I could not have pick a nicer person to do my refi. Marka Thomas was fantastic, her directions and instructions was to the point and she or her staff always responded immediately. Thank you for helping to procure my husbands military records. The process went very smoothly, we were very satisfied with the process. Sorry I don’t have a recommendation at this time, however, you will definitely be the one I would recommend should I have the opportunity to do so.

  • The level of professionalism that Marka demonstrated was remarkable. I had initially intended on using another lender when looking for a home because I was not familiar with Peoples Bank. The process of applying for a Mortgage was unfamiliar to me and Marka was able to break it down step-by-step. Marka’s time and patience showed how dedicated she is to her work and her audience. You could tell immediatly, that she is determined to give her customers the absolute best service possible, and will do whatever it takes to reach that goal. I was so impressed by her performace that I recommended her services to others, prior to closing on my home.

  • Marka is the best mortgage professional we have ever worked with. Her work ethic is above reproach. She makes it happen when others would throw up roadblocks. She makes you feel like a friend and you need someone like that during the mortgage process today. She explains everything in detail and keeps you informed through the whole process. We were blessed when we selected her for our loan process and we did have choices with other companies but because of her responsiveness and work ethic we selected her. You can’t go wrong using Marka for your mortgage loan process.

  • Marka was one of many lenders I spoke with for our mortgage loan. She was by far the best choice and I am so glad we stuck with her. Marka has outstanding knowledge of the loan process and knows what it takes to close on time (we actually closed early). A great choice for our VA home-loan, very friendly and thorough from the first step to the last.

  • I wanted to write and thank you personally in writing. All the hard work you did to help my family and I close on our home is greatly appreciated. You made the process so simple and easy. A process many stated was a headache ended up being the simplest loan process I have encountered. This is all due to your overwhelming knowledge and outstanding customer service. I want to commend you on your great customer service. Whenever I had a question you had an answer in a timely matter. Always returned my calls and was totally professional at all times. It is hard to get this type of customer service these days. I wanted you and Peoples Bank to know that my family and I could not have done this without your assistance. I will be referring you to every veteran and individual that I can that needs a mortgage. Once again thanks for the great customer service it will always be remembered.

  • Marka was a phenomenal asset to our “complicated” loan. We threw every obstacle imaginable at her and she responded beautifully. I cannot express enough my family’s gratitude for her tireless work at making this loan happen. Our insurance agent even commented that Marka was one of the best mortgage agents he has ever worked with. It was reassuring having someone like Marka in our corner, fighting for us. Job well done!

  • From the beginning, we knew that Marka was super-competent and experienced! In one instance in particular, she was able to get documentation from the VA to expedite our loan process. In fact, after we talked to her the first time, we said to each other that we didn’t need to talk to any other of the many mortgage originators who were soliciting us!

  • Thank you. I appreciate your style of work ethics and customer service. You showed me a new way of doing business with more personal commitment for your customers than the average banker. I have already started mirroring your ways with my own customers. I truly appreciate you.

  • We can’t say enough about Marka! As a professional her knowledge and experience made our lending experience so painless. As a lay person I felt like I had a friend assisting us through the lending procedure. Marka was there for us anytime. Her availability and response time was exceptional! We are so grateful to her and the staff in helping us realize our dream of having a home in Florida.

  • We had a challenging VA process and live in a different state, and Marka was continually on top of everything that needed to be done. She went above and beyond to expedite our process and her communication with us was excellent. She made a very stressful process bearable, and was willing to do whatever needed to be done! Thanks Marka!

  • We closed this evening and saved $361 per month or about 12% on the payment. Your approach to customer service is unmatched by anyone else I contacted for a mortgage at other companies. We chose the right organization for refinancing and you helped guide and coach us through it. Your responsive nature and positive attitude made this easy. Your process knowledge is obvious. You explained things in the right amount of detail to answer questions, while efficiently moving us through the process.

    Well done!

  • Jim and I talked about this transaction often over the last few months… We prayed it was possible but we never really believed it would really close. I can’t begin to thank you enough. You have helped change our lives and given us hope. Thank you!

  • I know with out question that I would have never made it threw the refinance process with out Marka’s guidance and patience. Her communication was over the top, always getting back to me in a timely manner, she has a complete understanding of the refinance process, and she got me over every hurdle that came my way. There is no doubt in my mind that I would recommend Marka to any one looking to refinance, or get a loan.

    She is over the top great at her job!
