I didn't deal with Shari, I worked with Becky and Nate and they got back to me within minutes of my emails and messages going out. As stressful as the whole process was with the city and parcel number they stuck it out with me and we still met the deadline.

great service and communication


It's a seller's market, and cash buyers have the advantage, but you can still compete and win. To stay competitive as a homebuyer you need to become a CASH BUYER! That’s where Buyer Accepted, exclusively offered by New American Funding, can help.
