If your looking for a house this is where you should go. Muriel helped us in every way she could and now we have a friend for life. If we need to buy another house we will be calling her again. We would recommend anyone to Muriel and her team.

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

Muriel was able to get us approved for more than what the lender that we previously worked with had. Whatever issues arose she and her team along with my realtor were able to counteract them. she was very detailed in explaining things, we did not have to ask what did this or that mean because she would explain it completely. Very nice to work with and will use her again.

I can not say enough amazing things about Muriel . her 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. Muriel never once faltered. This was my first experience, but rest assured Muriel will be the only lender I will ever use, or recommend. If your looking for a lender that is all heart, and cares about her clients, not just their loan number she is the lender to choose. I would never have done this without her. Muriel is a person that truly loves what she does, and that shows with every email, every text, and every phone call.

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

Muriel was very thorough, and explained each step to Michael (a first time home buyer). Even though the move was 5 hours away, Muriel ensured we could close on the house while we were on vacation! It was so easy to work with Muriel , and we will definitely use her company again. she even set Michael up with a very knowledgeable realtor who lives in the area Michael moved. Thank you Muriel 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 she works with. Muriel was one of the first loan officers to contact me. I discussed with her how the other 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. she contacted her underwriters immediately and I sent all my income documentation and Muriel obtained a pre-approval immediately. Once all income, assets and property documentation were submitted, she 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, she 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. Muriel is a top notch, second to none loan officer who cares about her clients personally and professionally. 5 stars to Muriel !!

Been through MANY closings and Muriel has facilitated BY FAR the smoothest mortgage loan experience. she is always encouragingly calm, has a ready solution for any issue that might come up due to her decades of lending knowledge and experience, and makes sure things go smoothly. her communication is spot on and she made himself available any time for questions or issues. Very personable, fair and on top of her game. Will definitely go with her again.

Muriel is communicative, prompt, and professional. When faced with a last minute fall through with another lender, Muriel was able to create a solution that resulted in me getting my preapproval for a traditional loan product the day before a holiday. her personal investment in a successful result was apparent in every step through closing, including a careful monitoring of interest rate conditions to make sure I got the best deal. My daughter and I are now settling into a very special home and we are very grateful for the service we received.

My wife and I are incredibly happy we had Muriel to help us through the lending process with buying a house her in OC. As first time home buyers, we had a ton of questions. Muriel was able to get us all answers we needed within minutes. she had a solution for every issue that came up during the home buying process. Not only does Muriel have a deep understanding and experience with mortgages, she is also able to give advice on matters that aren't directly related to the lending side. That as well as her ability to communicate effectively throughout the whole process resulted in us getting a loan approval even before inspection and appraisal contingencies were removed. Muriel will be my first choice for all future mortgage matters!

We applied with Muriel to refinance our first & second mortgage and to payoff some credit card debt. she was able to lock in our low rate and help us thru the process. Muriel was available any time I called or emailed and this included evenings and weekends. I have already referred her to a family member and I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or refinance their mortgage.

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

Muriel 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 Muriel "saved the day" with her cool head, experience and problem solving abilities. For this I will always be grateful. Muriel , was always there for guidance, reassurance and simply to answer those loan, financing and processing "for dummies" questions. I cannot recommend Muriel 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 Muriel 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. Muriel is extremely knowledgeable in the mortgage and home buying process. she 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 Muriel to anyone who is looking for a lender!
