Bob Strandell has been the 'loan officer of choice' for my business for years. You can always count on Bob to promptly return your call, qualify buyers, and when he says they are approved, they close 100 percent of the time. Bob always delivers what he promises. I would recommend Bob to anyone looking to purchase a home or refinance their current home.- John Collopy, broker/owner RE/MAX Results
