What people are saying about Walter

I know I asked a lot of questions and was pretty aggressive about the timelines. We hear many horror stories for first-time homebuyers and, since I was new to both the area and the process - I wanted to stay on top of everything. I appreciate the hardwork and tenacity of you and your team and have been enjoying my condo and the Palm Desert lifestyle. I have already referred your agency as well as my realtor, Kay Peterson, to a few family friends and fellow veterans who are interested in relocating as well.
Thanks again for your help and have a prosperous 2017.

Our experience with Franklin Loan and Walter Neil were flawless. Our closing happened early (less than 30 days)and the entire staff was knowledgeable and patient with us. Walter Neil was able to explain the entire process with us step by step. We have never worked with a harder working group of professionals. We can not thank Walter and his staff enough for making this entire process such a huge success.
