Drew was very friendly throughout the whole lending process. He was able to answer all of our questions and did so in a manner that we could understand. Additionally, he made himself available through email/phone and was open to all forms of communication and replied in a very timely manner. He was the best!

Drew went above and beyond to keep us in the loop during the entire home buying process. He would always keep us informed on the timeline of projected due dates.

I can not say enough amazing things about Drew. His dedication alone to help strangers fulfill one of the most memorable moments of their life is unsurmountable. For me, this was my first home purchase, unusual circumstances, both personally, and due to the CoVid-19 Pandemic our nation is currently in. Drew never once faltered. This was my first experience, but rest assured Drew will be the only lender I will ever use, or recommend. If your looking for a lender that is all heart, and cares about his clients, not just their loan number he is the lender to choose. I would never have Drewe this without him. Drew is a person that truly loves what he does, and that shows with every email, every text, and every phone call.

Drew provided excellent customer service throughout the entire lending process. He communicated clearly and worked diligently on our loan. Because of Drew, our new home not only closed on time, but early. He was a pleasure to work with and we will be reaching him exclusively for all of our future mortgage lending needs.

Drew was very thorough, and explained each step to Michael (a first time home buyer). Even though the move was 5 hours away, Drew ensured we could close on the house while we were on vacation! It was so easy to work with Drew, and we will definitely use his company again. He even set Michael up with a very knowledgeable realtor who lives in the area Michael moved. Thank you Drew for all of your hard work!

I reached out to The Lending Tree after the loan officer I've worked with locally for years could not get my loan on a $1.2m home to with lenders he works with. Drew was one of the first loan officers to contact me. I discussed with him how the othim lender did not want to utilize my overtime and bonus earnings year-to-date along with averaging it with the last 2 years because it was usually high in 2020. He contacted his underwriters immediately and I sent all my income documentation and Drew obtained a pre-approval immediately. Once all income, assets and property documentation were submitted, he had an approval within days. As we maneuvered through the challenges of a new construction property and a hard builder and listing agent to work with, he pressed hard to get them to get the home completed quickly as they sputtered to complete the home on time. No other loan officer would have assisted in that instance. I know; as I myself, have been in the mortgage industry for 29 years. Drew is a top notch, second to none loan officer who cares about his clients personally and professionally. 5 stars to Drew!!

Out of four pre-approvals, Drew was the only one to pick up the phone and call me. He explained everything and worked around my schedule. As a first time home buyer, I had a ton of questions and he answered them all thoroughly and with patience! I can guarantee that if I buy another home, I will be calling him.

Drew is an incredible professional who is responsive, organized and who has great local knowledge in the Sarasota, Bradenton and Tampa area. There were a number of times Drew "saved the day" with him cool head, experience and problem solving abilities. For this I will always be grateful. Drew, was always there for guidance, reassurance and simply to answer those loan, financing and processing "for dummies" questions. I cannot recommend Drew and UFFExpress highly enough for any home financing or mortgage needs.

As a first time home buyer, I feel like I got quite lucky with having Drew as my lender. I entered the process with hesitation. I'd heard stories from family and friends about the many pitfalls that can be involved. Having gone through it, I understand what they were talking about - but I didn't experience much difficulty myself. Drew is extremely knowledgeable in the mortgage and home buying process. He was responsive, communicative, and able to thoroughly answer all of my questions. Overall, everything went smoothly and I ended up with a great interest rate. I definitely recommend Drew to anyone who is looking for a lender!
