Craig was exceptionally attentive and responsive to our needs. We had quite the journey with a house that fell through and delays on the closing of the next house. Craig was flexible, thorough, and kept us informed of what was needed. Highly recommend!

My refinance experience with Ameris Bank Mortgage was without a doubt the best experience I have had with any lender. We closed quickly and everything went more smoothly than I could have ever expected. Craig’s was the primary reason everything went so well. He was on top of everything from the beginning to closing and kept me aware of all of the details along the way. I will recommend him to any of my family and friends and would certainly use them again if the need ever presented itself.
