Max was awesome to work with! He was extremely responsive and very helpful along the way for this first time home buyer! My loan was underwritten well before closing. He made buying my first home one of the easiest things I have ever done! Will use again!!

After hearing about a great experience from a colleague I decided to look into refinancing my own home. I reached out to James Willard directly based upon the personal referral received. From beginning to end this was an extremely pleasant process. I chose to refinance from a 30 year to a 15 year mortgage. Our rate was so great that it was only a $300 difference per month AND the amount saved in interest was completely worth it. I did not have to put down any cash as James worked everything into the financing of the loan. This entire experience started my wheels turning and we are now going to pay more toward the principal to pay off our home in 10 years. The process was quick. James was able to walk me through a pre-qualifying process and he knew his stuff. Everything else was simply a formality after that. Everyone was very communicative and I was even able to close from the comfort (and safety) of my own home via a Zoom call. I'm telling everyone that I know about this!!!! This was for sure the find of 2020 for me!!!!!!!!

Being a first time home buyer, I knew very little about home mortgage, but James made it very straight forward and walked me through the entire process. He's easily reachable, extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He was truly a pleasure to work with and made the whole experience easy and worry free.

James goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of! He offers a very high level of "personal" service, and remains in constant communication to help through the entire process. From initial loan application, to appraisal, to closing, he was there every step of the way, updating me through the entire process without even being asked. If I did have questions he was very responsive very quickly. Closing was a breeze and no unexpected surprises. I would highly recommend him and his company!

This is my second experience working with James on refinancing and he is still the best!! I just closed on my refinance loan with James and in record time!! He is always very professional, friendly and responsive (even after normal business hours). He knows the industry very well and always works to get the best deal for you. I have referred friends and family to James and will continue to do so.

We have refinanced with James a couple times over the years and every experience has been great. James is always very accessible at whatever time I call or text including weekends. He answers any questions I have and always goes the extra mile. Each time has been seamless and I wouldn't go with anyone else!

This was my second time working with James and Frances, they were extremely helpful and responsive. The process was timely and I was able to close on time even with the difficult circumstances that we are currently facing (Covid 19).

A friend referred us to Liberty Home Mortgage and we had a fantastic experience working with James and his team. As first time home buyers, we really appreciated working with someone as responsive and knowledgeable as James is. He was able to get us an incredibly low rate on our mortgage and worked seamlessly with our realtor and her team to close in less than 30 days. Our realtor even commented at our closing how great it was to work with him. An excellent overall experience and would highly recommend!

James is excellent at his job. He was always professional, but super friendly, and always responded promptly to emails, calls and texts. He was available to explain everything patiently and would text me if he had time-sensitive emails I needed to be looking out for. Little things like this make the process of refinancing less intimidating. James also got me the best rate at the best deal in the least amount of time. I did tons of research and talked to many lenders and none of them came close to what James could get. It was also super fast. Less than a month from start to closing. I am supremely grateful for James' guidance and would definitely recommend him highly.

As a first time home buyer, I couldn’t have asked for a better mortgage broker than James. He made himself available at a moment’s notice and his responses were always precise and easy to understand. James was happy to engage in conversation related to various lending scenarios and was patient in responding to my many questions. Whether you’re buying your first or third home, James is the broker to work with.

James came as a reference from a friend of a friend. My first home buying experience was a rough one, but once James came into the picture, I really felt like he was in my corner. At times, I felt like he was the only person who wasn't bullshitting me. Honestly, I think it could have fallen through without him so I'm extremely grateful for the work he put in.

This was our eighth mortgage in 36 years. I've gone through brokers, bank, etc. and no one has exceeded my expectations of responsiveness, accuracy and timeliness like James. It made the process so easy and to boot, the rates were great. Thanks much, James, and I will be referring my daughter to you when she purchases in 2021.

Working with James and Francis is a seamless experience. After being introduced to James about 6 years ago, he has helped me through refinancing my home twice; most recently last month. He is dedicated to his clients, thoughtful in responses, and easily understands one's concerns and questions as seen through his quick, on-point replies. He is patient, has humor, and presents the "big picture" in tandem with minutiae, all of which I greatly appreciate when I'm evaluating/trying to make a financial decision. Even at a time when most services are available online, I would not trade working with James and his team. Personal relationships matter and James gets that! Thanks.

I was out of time when the seller finally came back to me to accept my offer so I was under a very tight deadline. I spoke to several lenders and none but James would even try to meet my deadline- it just couldn’t be done. James was the only one who thought he could meet it and he and his team did. The process was fast and easy, far more than I had expected from any lender. I will absolutely recommend James to friends and family!

James Willard is the best mortgage broker that I have ever known. I am 76 years old and have owned several homes. James helped me purchase a home when I retired eight years ago and moved back to Atlanta. He helped me refinance the home in 2016 and again this month in 2020. I took out cash and he still got me an unbelievable mortgage rate and saved me a great deal of money. The closing costs are low because James is committed to his clients and to honesty, integrity and repeat business. James is trustworthy and honest and works hard for his clients. He is dependable, committed, diligent, efficient, patient, communicates well and answers every question immediately and thoroughly. James started his business in 2002 and knows this market. James and his team are professional, organized, competent and can achieve fast results. If you want a seamless, painless, dependable process that can close in 30 days, then James Willard is the mortgage broker for you. He has been named, Best Mortgage Broker in Atlanta for the past three years. I referred family members to James without hesitation and they all had the same experience of the best interest rates, low closing costs, fast results and excellent service. We were all able to close via Zoom because of COVID-19. It was safe and convenient. I will send James referrals whenever possible. Bankrate recently had an article, Why haven’t 19 million homeowners refinanced their mortgages yet? The answer was for many the process is too tedious and intimidating, the closing costs are daunting and they do not trust the process. I wish that I could give James Willard’s name to those 19 million people that could save money by refinancing. I highly recommend that you call him.

Our experience working with Max was simply amazing. He was knowledgeable, super responsive and provided every tiny detail as to what was happening and needed to be done. But, by far, our favorite thing about Max was the confidence he expressed while working through things with us. We needed someone to really drive the loan process, and he did exactly that. There was no wavering, no doubt, no questioning... just clear direction backed up with vast knowledge that was second to none. On top of all of this, he’s just a great guy. Easy to talk to, doesn’t make things too complicated and really wants to find the best solution for us. If you can’t tell already, I could give a stronger recommendation. Max is simply the best!

James is very professional, knowledgeable and thorough! Whenever we had a question he was extremely quick to respond (even after regular business hours)! He is very customer oriented and goes the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of! I really couldn't imagine using anyone else in the future for a mortgage should we buy another home! James Willard is an outstanding mortgage broker, and I don't believe you would find anyone else in the business that is any better! If you need a mortgage give him a call. You'll be happy you did!
