"Richard is phenomenal! Honestly, I already knew he was a quality loan officer as I often refer him to my clients (I’m a realtor). If it weren’t for him and his team, I wouldn’t have a home today. Also, his reputation was so impeccable that even the seller’s agent knew him and felt comfortable postponing the original close date to make it work because she knew Richard would get it done. We didn’t have to postpone long because Richard and his team closed me in what felt like record time! THANK YOU Richard and Angel Oak Home Loans!" -Clay J
" I have bought and sold more than twenty homes over the past 50 years, both as personal residences and investment properties. This was a very challenging assignment for Angel Oak because the Covid pandemic had interrupted our income. At the same time, the closing on the sale of our prior home was delayed for 60 days. Thankfully, Richard crafted a loan that worked for us and permitted us to "downsize" successfully. If you have a situation that requires serious thought and hard work, I am happy to recommend Richard and his Angel Oak team." -David B
