I had a privilege working with Moreira Team on my mortgage for our new home in Athens, Georgia. Alvaro Moreira and his team Amanda Bailey, Kristin Turner are awesome, I had a fantastic experience with them. He was very easy to get in touch with and was great at communicating. Alvaro, Amanda and Kristin went above and beyond to make sure that we close on the house on time with minimal stress. Alvaro got me low rate, with minimal origination fees. I would highly recommend working with Moreira Team on any mortgage needs, and for sure I will go back to him for my investment purchase! Keep up the good job Alvaro, well done! Kudos to you and your team.
I just wanted to take a moment to Thank the Moreira team for helping my wife and I out with the refinance of our home. Glenn, Amanda, and Belinda were wonderful to work with. We have refinanced before with other companies but never had such excellent customer service from start to finish. They returned our calls in a most timely fashion. As a Veteran I liked the fact they are a Veteran owned company. Many companies promise many things and very few deliver. I'm sorry I can only give them 5 stars I'd give them 10 if I could!
My husband found the Moreira Team after we became very unhappy with a huge national mortgage lender while trying to purchase our vacation home. And we are so glad we did! Al and his team, Amanda and Belinda, took care of us like we were longtime family friends. Amanda was especially outstanding as she almost literally held our hands through the little bumps along the way to our closing. We really couldn't be more pleased with our experience with the Moreira Team!

Had a great Refi experience with HomeTown Lenders. Al found a great rate and Tika help pull the closing together. Very happy with the rate, the closing costs, the speed to close, and the convenience. They also use a title company that sends the closing attorney to your house for the closing. Thank you Al and Tika.

My wife and I were looking for local mortgage lenders to help us with a refinance on a Jumbo mortgage for our house in an intown neighborhood in Atlanta. After contacting several businesses in the area, we chose Hometown Lenders (based on both word-of-mouth and extensive research). In the end, all of our due diligence paid off as Al Moreira and Barbara Pruden walked us through the process and made us comfortable with our choices, while offering several alternatives specific to our particular set of circumstances.
We have purchased and re-financed several houses in the past, and I can say with no reservation, that our experience with Al and Barbara during our Jumbo refinance was the most stress-free and straightforward I've ever experienced. We literally could have compteted the entire process without ever leaving the confines of our own living room (they even arranged to have the closing attorney come to our house to sign the final paperwork). Never was there a time where I had a question and Al didn't return my call within the hour...sometimes within the minute (and that includes weekends). In fact, there were issues concerning the title, previous liens, etc. that our previous lender had overlooked, which made the process more difficult than it should have been, but these issues were handled by Al and Barbara and required no input from us. That's the kind of mortgage broker we were looing for...one who doesn't make us ""sweat the small stuff"" and takes the initiative to fix things before they become larger problems. These are some the intangibles Hometown Lenders bring to the table, and are the reason why we would never choose to do business with anyone else.
In the end we made friends in the mortgage business, and in this age of distrust for everyone and everything that has to do with lending or housing, that's a pretty rare thing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hometown Lenders, and especially the team of Al Moreira and Barbara Pruden to anyone looking to purchase a home, or simply refinance the one they are currently living in. I can't imagine taking my business anywhere else. Kudos, and 5 stars all around to Al and Barbara and their staff!

I decided to purchase a home in one of our county's worst economic down turns in history, not knowing that it would take not only two good jobs on our part, but the help of two people Al and Tika. My credit was ok, but my wife had never done anything to build her credit score so we were at a pretty good disadvantage. When I called and first met Al, he told me that it would be an up hill climb and he couldn't promise me anything, but he would do all he could to help. After a few days he gave me a number to call. This number was to Tika. Tika helped me and my wife to repair and build our credit. Tika worked tirelessly for us to help us gain financing for the new home. This wasn't easy, but would have been impossible without her help. We went up and down and back and forth for some time, but in the end Al and Tika were able to help us purchase the home. Without the help of these two individuals we would have given up. Thanks again to Al and Tika. for being our Home Town Lenders.

After searching out quite a few lenders in our area, we settled with Hometown Lenders. It was probably the best move we made. Al and Barbara, are in my opinion the best there is out there, when it comes to helping you wit getting your loan approved. We had a lot of hurdles to go over and Al and Barb made it seem so easy. Another reason we chose them was because Al told us up front what the final closing cost would be. The others added on a little here and a little there until the final cost to us was $4,000. and up. Home town Lenders had no hidden costs, what Al stated the first day was what we paid at the closing. We didn't even have to leasve the house,they sent an attorney to us when we said we were ready to sign. There was absolutely no pressure and everything was explained to us so we could understand what we were signing.
You will not be dissatisfied with their service.I give them 5 stars plus.
Also we decided to do a VA loan, and Barbara and Al handled that for us as well. Very professional group.

My family and I needed to move to a bigger home as out family has outgrown where we lived. What was ideal for a family of 3 isn't nearly big enough for a family of 6.
We had planned on using our previous home as a rental, so we were on a very, very tight budget when looking for a new home and also wanted to stay within the school district for our kids.
Al and his team at Hometown Lenders were very helpful, getting inspectors coordinated, recommending a title search company - what really made a difference and made the entire process less stressful was how quick they were to communicate with us and how well they knew the process. It's been more than 12 years since we had been in the market for a home, we were so glad they were there to guide us through the entire process.
We are closing on our new place in just a few weeks and I couldn't be happier. Now, if only they could recommend a moving company!

I had a bad experience with my old mortgage lender on an attempted refinance and had almost given up on reducing my rate. I decided to give it one more try and happened upon Hometown Lenders. After speaking with Al Moreira I was hopeful that my luck was changing. With the help of Al and Barbara Pruden we closed on our refinance twenty-eight days after initially contacting them. We now have a much better rate and monthly payment. The entire experience was painless and stress free! I will definately recommend Hometown Lenders to others.
