My husband began the mortgage application process in February, and our closing date was 4/15. Things proceeded smoothly for a time, and Mr. Harnish who is our Loan Officer had an oversight in telling us that the well water did not need to be tested (and even put it in writing for our agent that no inspection was necessary), and water testing was added as a last-minute condition.
It is now 4/25-- we have to move out of our rental. The last-minute conditions are still cropping up, and Mr. Harnish is not as available or in contact with us as he was before I wrote a first, glowing review of his services and CREFCO.
I will write another review of CREFCO and Mr. Harnish's services when this is all said and done. At this moment we are facing homelessness, I have no clear closing date, and no one is returning my calls.
At the least, I can say that there is a lack of organization and clear communication at the end of this process. Kristie Gross was the most organized person through this process so far, but she is limited to handling her role in the process.
I hope to write a final review stating that we were able to close on the house and things came together after a bumpy ride. Time will tell, and I will let you know.
At this moment, my best advice is beware of CREFCO and expect the unexpected in terms of problems.
