Buying our first home was very easy with the help of Chris Lewis!! He was very professional and knowledgeable about the home buying process. He stayed in contact with us from start to finish, keeping us up to date with every detail. Any questions or concerns we had, he was there with answers. Highly recommend Area Home Lending if you are in the process of purchasing a home. Great company!!!! Ask for Chris!!!

Me and My wife purchased a home earlier this year and Chris Lewis with Area Home Lending assisted us through the process. First, I had no clue of the proper steps to take or how to maneuver through the home buying process. However, we were in luck. Why? Because we never had to actually know how to do everything because Chris Lewis had that covered. We were guided every step of the way and felt comfortable and confident with every decision we made. This was predominately because of the advice and guidance Chris Lewis and Area Home Lending render the whole way through. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris Lewis and Area Home Lending to anyone and everyone in the process of buying a home or re-financing a home. Actually, come to think of it, I have actually referred 3 additional couples to Chris Lewis and they all share the same thoughts regarding his work......AMAZING!!!

I recently purchased a house through Area Home Lending. Erin and Jason were awesome answering all my questions, and pretty much babysitting me throughout the whole process. This is my first house, and I was so nervous that everything would fall apart. But they did it. The processing team was awesome. Also, after I closed, I missed placed my Act of Cash sale and my temporary payment coupon. All I did was call up, and with in minutes, Jeff, the post closing person had emailed it to me. I would highly recommend Area Home Lending for all your mortgage needs.

I was looking forward to working with this company as a friend of mine recommended them to me saying they were great. Unfortunately, my experience was awful and I do not recommend using Tracy Oliveri or this company. Tracy was very uninformative and did not even provide a cost sheet/breakdown at the beginning of my pre-approval process as a first-time buyer. My realtor had to ask for me to be sent my estimated mortgage once putting in an offer on a home. To top everything off-- when my documentation was sent for final approval it was denied because they entered my financial information incorrectly causing me to lose the home. I provided the correct base salary and told my lender my first check would reflect a higher amount as I was being compensated for days in the previous month yet they still used the amount reflected in that pay stub. I had already made it through the inspection and appraisal process. The owner, Jason, originally stated he would cover all costs except for the inspection. After finding out I still planned on leaving a negative review and contacting the BBB he revoked that offer and stated he is sending me an invoice in the mail for all money owed. In light of this, I definitely do not recommend using this company.

I can't explain how easy Dana Watt with Area Home Lending made the home buying process for us. I will absolutely use her / AHL again. Everything went as expected, on time, and most important smoothly. Thanks Dana, you'll have my business again shortly.

If I had to describe how Tracy Oliveri conducts business, it would be to say that she is "fully engaged" in all aspects involving her clients. Her commitment to her clients, coupled with all aspects of the process, causes everyone involved to "step up" to her level. She is a pleasure to work with.

The process of buying a home can be very tedious and stressful. Diana King was there for us from Day One! She was always available to answer all of our questions, and she always did it with a smile! I would definitely recommend Area Home Lending, and especially Diana King, if you are looking for a home!
