Knowledge & Experience

“Working with Ashlyn and Lending by Design was an absolute joy. I purchased my home through a private sale, and found myself in a unique situation where I didn’t have a real estate agent to help me navigate the mortgage lending process. Because of that, I am so grateful I was referred to Ashlyn because she took the time to answer all of my calls and explain what I needed to do at every step along the way. She offered white glove service, and taught me all about mortgage rates, points, and locking in my rate at the right time. She also already had a great relationship with my attorney, and that made the entire process of securing a mortgage loan easy and (thankfully!) uneventful. Everything happened as planned, and the entire process from my first call with Ashlyn to closing on my new home only took 5 weeks. I cannot recommend Ashlyn enough — I also want to give a huge shoutout to her and the team for the sweet housewarming gift I received just in time for Christmas. Thanks again Ashlyn, and the entire Lending by Design Team!” -Liz, Buyer in Charlotte, NC
