Charlie has helped us obtain mortgage financing for three properties. From prequalification to closing we were worry-free.

Bob Folkman

I have known Charlie for many years, both professionally and personally. He has worked with me several times financing and refinancing mortgages. I would highly recommend him.

Ray Bates

Charlie made the home buying experience as easy as 123. He would send us updates asap. Charlie even worked on our behalf while he was on vacation. That is real dedication. A true professional.

Ollie Brown

Charlie was extremely detailed and thorough throughout the entire process, from getting pre-qualified to closing. His customer service was hands-down the best that you will find in a lender. He made it easy and comfortable for a first-time home buyer.

Spencer Floyd

Mr. Sides helped me and my family secure our first home and I can't thank him enough. Mr. Sides makes the impossible happen because he works so hard for his customers. Throughout the loan process I was constantly updated on progress while Mr. Sides did the footwork. He is truly a blessing and we're grateful we had him as our loan officer he is the best. Thanks Mr. Sides!


Working with Charlie Sides and his team was as easy as cutting butter! As a young first time home buyer I was completely new and unaware of the processes involved, but he was always there to answer my questions at all hours of the day. Due to moving from Hawaii this was essential due to the major time difference! I felt he went above and beyond to take care of the process on situations where I dropped the ball such as getting homeowner's insurance. He managed to make some phone calls and get it all taken care of with only 2 days notice prior to closing. Charlie Sides and his team are exceptional professionals in their trade.
