James Lonergan
Calling Peter at Animas Mountain Mortgage was one of the best decisions I made during the process of buying a home in the Durango area. Living out of state, I was a bit nervous about the process, but I was soon at ease with Peter's guidance. He walked us through the entire process, made sure we were staying on top of all the important deadlines, and was always available to answer our questions. His expert knowledge and local experience with realtors, title and insurance companies made the process a breeze; everyone I spoke to knew about Peter and the excellent service he provides at Animas Mountain Mortgage. I would absolutely work with Peter again and would recommend him to my family and friends. Thank you Peter!
Melanie Powers
Peter was extremely helpful and provided a lot of timely information. This wasn't our first mortgage experience yet we learned more while going through the process with Peter's guidance. We were more comfortable and confident in our decisions because of his experience and advice. Additionally, he shared tips for us to keep in mind in the future that will both make things easier and save us money.
Matthew French-Holt
Peter worked with us to get a mortgage in record time (seriously, less than two weeks) for a purchase we wanted to make that was time sensitive! It was the easiest purchasing process we've ever had with clear directions for what we needed to provide and frequent communication about how things were going. We will never use another mortgage broker.
Lynn May
Peter was excellent to work with. As a first time home buyer, I didn't know what I was getting into, especially in this highly competitive market. He provided tons of support along the way, answered never ending questions and was incredibly patient and encouraging after many failed attempts. Couldn't have asked for a better person to rely on.
Tori Moon
I highly recommend Peter to anyone looking to get a mortgage. He was very on top of everything and quick to respond to all our questions. He provides constant updates throughout the process, which we found very helpful!
