"This is my second time using FHM, and will continue to use them for ALL real estate transactions I have in the future. I recommend FHM to EVERYONE who mentions an interest in purchasing, refinancing, or even questions that need to be answered by a professional in the industry. I referred a friend to Bruce, who needed guidance regarding a previous loan with a different lender. I know for a fact that he was able to put her mind at ease in mere minutes with her situation, and instantly secured a future customer. After speaking to him on the phone for just a few minutes, she said she raved about his knowledge and bedside manner. Taking the time, always being available, providing extensive knowledge................these are the attributes of a consummate professional in the industry..........and Bruce Rider is that person. Big thanks, again, to Bruce and FHM!!"

"Our experience started off great, getting pre-approved, etc. However, going VA was a slow process in obtaining the necessary forms to receive the final approval. Bruce and his team never stopped processing our loan while waiting for the VA forms. They were very patient. After receiving the necessary VA forms, Regan went out of her way to ensure we could go to settlement on April 28. Buying a home can be a huge, stressful decision, however Bruce & his team were always very professional while keeping us calm."

- Robert H.
"Mr. Bruce Rider and his assistant Brandon and Reagan were wonderful always there for us thru the whole process of the loan from the beginning to the settlement date. They are a very awesome team and work together well. We would refer them to others asking for a loan officer a very positive experience ."

- William B.
"I had such a lovely experience. Buying my first house and all the financial info was slightly overwhelming! Mr. Rider broke everything down for me. He went the extra mile in every area and I had an amazing first time buying experience. Mr. Rider is an outstanding human."

- Brittani H.
"Bruce and his team made themselves readily available for any questions/concerns I may have had. I loved working with them because they explained every detail along the way and offered their professional advice the entire time....and even after closing :) I could not have picked a better lender for my 2nd home. Bruce, Brandon, and Regan were all a pleasure to work with. Very responsive and always available. It is always stressful buying a home and I found this team to be very professional and comforting at the same time. I would never recommend anyone else!"

- Tiffany S.
"I was dreading the home buying process, but you guys made it easy and not as scary. I loved the family vibe and they truly care. Thanks for everything!"

- Lara W.
"Bruce Rider went out of his way (very responsive) to assist me in the mortgage process for my new home."

- Reuben F.
"Working with Bruce Rider for our refinance was a breeze. Having worked with him in 2012, there was no one else that we cared to reach out to for another refinance in 2017 when our financial needs changed. Bruce was responsive, listened to our needs and quickly provided a solution. I would recommend Bruce to any of my friends, Family and colleagues."

- Timothy B.
"Bruce and his entire staff were wonderful from beginning to end of the whole process. We actually started with another mortgage company but as soon as we spoke to Bruce, we knew that things would be handled professionally and properly. There was not one problem, which we think is rare. Everything was done in a timely fashion so that the closing went smoothly. The original estimate that Bruce gave us was right on target, and he kept his word regarding everything he promised us. We recommend him and his staff highly."
