What Our Clients Say

Andreal & Tina C.

Craig was instrumental in me and my wife buying our first home together. He was able to get us a great rate, even with my low [credit] score, and we were able to move into our new home. We are very pleased with the service and professionalism Craig provided us and will continue to work with him for all of our housing finances in the future.

Heather & Teague G.

We highly recommend UW Funding. We are on our second home purchase with Craig. You lose sleep buying your first home and it’s comforting to know you have the right lender looking out for your best interests. Two years later, we are on our second home and, just like the first, best rate, no fees and thousands of dollars saved!

Michael H.

We are so glad we trusted Craig with our refinance. We were able to take cash out with absolutely no fees! In hindsight, we wished we would have used him for our purchase. Sure enough, we had a straightforward closing with no surprises and we are truly grateful for our friends referring Craig to us.
