Rachel in Nickens Lake

"Dana was an absolute dream to work with! We couldn't have been luckier for our file to come across her desk. Our entire loan process was made so easy. I felt informed, listened to, and like my questions and opinions really held weight. Thanks so much, Dana!"

Gloria in Jamestown Crossing

"My experience with DSLD was awesome. Your Company and Employees are very well organized and can fully provide your customers with the answers they need. My Mortgage Loan Originator, Dana Scharwath, was the most helpful and completely organized person I dealt with during my loan process. She was always able to provide answers to my questions and was always completely polite and helpful! You have an "ACE" of an Employee with Dana, and I'm sure you are already aware that she's FANTASTIC; but if not, please believe me that she is SPECIAL! You are lucky to have Dana, and I hope that DSLD takes every precaution and effort to keep her satisfied with its organization."

My fiancé and I went to DSLD not knowing anything about purchasing a home. We weren't even sure if we would be able to qualify to buy a home. Dana Scharwath and Alicia Bryan eased our minds the second we contacted them. They worked quickly and effortlessly for us. Everyone there was friendly and had positive energy all the time. They made us feel like family. We appreciate everything they did for us. They are responsible for getting us into our first home. We'll definitely use them again in the future and have already recommended them to all our friends and family."

"I would like to thank DSLD and their amazing staff for making my family's dream come true!!! The staff was absolutely exceptional!!! Being a first time home buyer, my nerves were completely on edge especially after hearing so many horror stories. When I tell you this was the smoothest process EVER... Bethany and her team were amazing!!! I would like to personally thank Bethany; she is an amazing asset to the DSLD company. She is knowledgeable, flexible, efficient, and definitely friendly. She made me feel like I could ask her for anything without feeling belittled. I would recommend her to the most elite professional looking to buy a home and could guarantee she would execute the mission effortlessly . I talk about how smooth my 1st time home buying experience was to all my friends which leaves them speechless to know I didn't experience any major hiccups. If I did, I was never made aware and they handled the issues with grace, poise, and exceptional care. So thank you, thank you, thank you Bethany and DSLD!"

She was very informative and held my hand through the entire process. Kelly Berns was my Loan Originator, and I could have never asked for a better person to help me. I swear I feel like she was my best friend throughout the process. She made me feel like a person and not an applicant. She was and is the best loan processor in my books. My closer was Sara Bayhi! Ms Sara was on her A game with everything! From the details of the loan to the fine print on my loan documents! I have recommended DSLD to everyone I know because becoming a homebuyer is stressful enough. DSLD provided me emotional and mental support making buying my home such a memorable moment! Thank you DSLD for having the best employees to represent your brand!"

"Our process started by "just looking around" and our builder rep suggested that we should reach out to Krissy Lirette to get the ball rolling. Little did we know that Krissy would turn into our number one fan, coach, teacher, supporter, and Lender. The process was beyond smooth and Krissy made sure we enjoyed every step of the process. No question went unanswered! By being consistent (decreasing the amount of coffee stops every week), disciplined (decreasing excessive spending and eating out), and faithful (knowing that it will come to fruition) - we were able to close on our new home before the end of the year! Thank you, Krissy and DSLD! DSLD and their team did an amazing job by taking the headache out of home buying and making sure we enjoyed the process."
