Here are some of the things customers have had to say about Karen and OneSite Finance in general

"We were first introduced to Liz by one of our friends in 2013. At that time we were new to the process of home buying. Liz introduced us to Norman and both of them were very helpful during our first home buying experience. Norman helped us in preparing our application and came and visited us several times at home after work hours. He was very patient, helpful and thorough in his work. We were able to contact him anytime for questions and he was always available and provided us with the information needed or got back to use immediately. We have been very happy with the service provided and used Onesite again during our second home buying process."
