"This was my first home, and I cannot believe how lucky I was to have stumbled upon James through the Nurse Next Door program. He made this process so easy, and he went above and beyond every time I needed something. My case was complicated, and I was sure I would have trouble getting a loan, but James and his team got me financing seamlessly so that I could purchase an amazing home. I am so grateful to have had the support of James and all of his amazing connections throughout this process – everyone was extremely knowledgeable and professional. James honestly made me feel like his top priority consistently with the way he worked with me so promptly and with so much attention to detail. I cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone looking to purchase a new home!"

"Being young first-time home buyers and a newly married couple, we were new to the home buying process. As we did our research, we knew it would be a long grueling process but was very excited to get started. We even took a first-time home buying course about six months prior, to help better educate ourselves. Buying a home was one of our major goals we had our minds set to. As we learned about the Teacher Next Door program, we knew it was perfect for us. James Ward is a very kind and knowledgeable person. He’s very easy to talk to and looks out for your best interest, making sure he sees you through the entire process. From our very first conversation we knew he was a hard-working person and he got the ball rolling. We cannot explain how grateful we are from beginning to end. He was always in constant communication with us explaining what we currently would be doing as well as what to expect further down the line. The program makes it so much easier for home buyers as everything you need is within the program. He provided us with a great team who presented ethical and top-notch work. By having the bank, realty company, attorneys, appraiser etc. all working together in his program, things were made so much easier for us as we didn’t have to go out and hire them on our own. With this setup plus the financial assistance that the program provides in the form of credits, the process was made much more cost-effective than if we tried to do it on our own. From visiting houses with our realtor, Greg Anderson (who was excellent) to working with our attorney and closer, we had a great first experience and are very thankful for all that was done with and for us. We are happy to say we have become homeowners, accomplishing our goal. We will be sure to recommend anyone for this program, letting them know the impressive work that was offered. Thank you again!

"The team was absolutely amazing. I have never worked with a team of professionals that was supportive as with The Teacher Next Door Program. I always felt respected and treated with dignity from the first phone call to the last walk through. I was educated along the way and I was given choices in my process. This is important because I didn't feel pressured to just sign something or just say yes to anything. Sheff always made himself available to me. I really felt like I had a team working with me, with my interests first instead of feeling rushed or pressured to sign papers just to close another deal. I will always recommend The Teacher Next Door Program to any teacher. HUGS AND SHOUT OUTS TO SHEFF, APRIL, KYRA & anyone who had a helping hand in my process. Thank you all,
"Brian and him team were excellent!"
"When I started the journey to buy a home, I did not have much faith that I would qualify for anything. I am a single mom, school teacher living on a budget, and didn't have any credit history. Samantha Wallace mentored me through the home buying process and gave me the confidence that I needed to keep moving forward in perusing my family's dream home. She advised me through every step necessary in order for me to qualify for an affordable option that met my needs. For an entire year she called me once a week and touched base; never rushing or giving up on me. Sometimes her phone calls were business oriented, sometimes she was offering advice, and sometimes she was just a friend offering me emotional support because the home buying process is stressful. I am so happy to announce that my family now owns our dream home. I feel like Samantha made it all happen. I will forever be grateful for her and all the things she has done for my family. Samantha Wallace is a dream maker!"

"Samantha was great to work with. She was fast & efficient, In this fast paced market that we are in right now, it’s very important for me to be able to get a quick response. She was always available - even on the weekends. Although we were several states away, this process was seamless I look forward to working with Samantha in the future.

Nurse Next Door Realtor: Jennifer LindsayNurse Next Door Loan Officer: Brandon Childs
"Brandon made my first-time home buying experience incredibly smooth. He was thoughtful in every step of the way taking the time to explain things to me so I could make confident decisions. He went above and beyond when the selling real estate agent was being difficult with us (sellers' market in Northern California). He was always available by text, and even called me outside of office hours so I could ask him a question. I work as a nurse and had been pulling extra overtime and couldn't always come up with the questions during normal business hours so his being available to me was invaluable. I was treated as if I was his only client even though I know Brandon has been plenty busy with others, but I felt like I was well taken care of. Thank you, Brandon and his team.Mai Nguyen, RNSchertz, TX
