Once again Bridgewater Bank came through for me. They provided a great rate for a blemished credit client. My underwriter is great to work with and my BDM is a tremendous help. I work with a lot of brokers and recommend Bridgewater Bank for their B files.
My underwriter was amazing to deal with on this file as we had shortened timelines that with their support, we were able to meet.
My underwriter was awesome! They always respond to calls or get back to me right away.
My underwriter was a huge help in getting a commitment. It was a bit of a difficult deal. The big thing is that no matter how busy, they communicated with me. I really cannot believe the service here. That extra step goes so far.
I appreciate the support, great experience, and look forward to doing business in the future.
