Sandra was awesome! She was very informative and professional. She remained patient throughout the entire process and answered all questions I asked, even if it was a duplicate question. She broke the entire process down so that I could understand and guide me on how to address the builder and his affiliates. She gave me Peace of Mind in the overwhelming home buying process.

Nate is a “great guy” and a pleasure to work with. Being a realtor, I have referred many clients to him, as well, knowing he would take great care of my clients as well.

I was told by other lenders that refinancing my home was not an option. (Messy divorce). Sandra helped me sort all of it out and now I can say my house is through mine. I cannot recommend Sandra and Atlantic United Mortgage enough if you need any sort of lending help. They are the absolute best.

United Atlantic Mortgage exceeded our expectations. There are so many unknown variables when buying a home but UAM was so solid that we had no worries on that end whatsoever. They are extremely professional and fast to respond to all requests.
