I’ve been trying to buy a house for a while now, for some reason or another one I wasn’t able to. Last month I purchased my one home. Thanks to an amazing realtor and Mr. CJ Nelson I was able to close the deal. CJ Nelson was very professional from beginning to end, always so helpful. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, that needs help buying a house. He was just AMAZING!!!!

I was referred to CJ by a friend following a terrible experience trying to refinance my mortgage with a major bank. CJ was extremely helpful and offered just the guidance I needed to understand the process. The entire loan experience with CJ was a breathe of fresh air after what I went through with the bank and I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend CJ to anyone looking to finance a home.

CJ handled the process of getting us approved for a loan like a champ. The process with him was easy and relatively headache free. He always had time to take my calls and answer my questions.

Working with CJ was a fantastic experience! Couldn't have asked for better service. He stayed connected with me throughout the entire refi process and helped guide me through the different stages as we advanced to closing. I can't thank CJ enough for being a great resource and sounding board as we started the process and a great partner as we moved through the paperwork and closed.

CJ was amazing! I don’t use that word lightly. As a veteran, working through using my VA loan for the first time, there was a bit to do. CJ was active in the whole process and helped me with every step. I would recommend him to anyone! But if you are a veteran, he is 100% behind helping you get through the loan process.

Cj did my Cash Out Refi and it was as smooth as fresh churned Amish butter. He is as sweet as homemade marmalade and easy to work with. My only regret is that I didn't have any hot fresh bread to go with this deal. I will have to use the time and frustration saved by using CJ to do my Refi to bake my own bread.

CJ made the refinance process simple and efficient, definitely would recommend him to friends and family and will be doing business with him again.

We had a great experience working with CJ for our mortgage loan. Quick to respond and never left us in the dark on the status of our loan. Smooth closing, couldn't ask for anything more.

Christopher Nelson is extraordinary in his ability to get a job done well and quickly. He was able to get for me a very competitive mortgage and complete the processing of this loan in 8 days time, when Wells Fargo was going to require 8 to 12 weeks to do the same.
C J is a consummate professional. I can recommend him without any reservations.

I would highly recommend Christopher Nelson. He was very patient when I asked repeated question and very clear for me to understand. He made sure to contact me ASAP when any additional information was required. Christopher made this process for me less stressful and worked very hard to make sure it was all done on time. Again, thank you soo much for your good services.

CJ helped us with our home loan at the beginning of the year and then recently helped us refinance. This was my third time going through the home loan process (and my first refinance). I fully expected it to be a huge hassle with a lot of stress like it had been in the past. It was not. It was amazing! He was organized and gave options for how to handle documentation. Communication was clear and I'm so happy to have a go to person in the future!
