Kent was excellent to work with, and very helpful. Dealing with Kent at Shelter Mortgage Company has been the most positive aspect (of our building process).

Good people are hard to find. But you certainly have found the right person with Kent. What a patient, kind and extremely professional representative you have in this man. He returns every phone call, he answers every question and if he can't, he doesn't try to bull his way through a fake answer to look good. Thank you Kent, and thank you Shelter Mortgage for finding Kent to represent you.
