I appreciated her compassion and "we gone get this done" attitude. Also, Tish shows so much support through checking in either by phone, text or email. As I said many times before, TISH IS AMAZING." 

My Clients Say

“Tish Griffin saved my new home. Her know how ability in this field was amazing. I began this journey with a different lender that wasn't helpful at all. My attourney recommended her and it was the best descision I ever made. Tish took my stress away. My previous lender wanted $14,700 for closing, let just say she became my super lender. She was able to understand all my needs and what I was able to afford and make it work. I highly recommend her, you won't be disappointed."
