From their quick, thoughtful responses to the personal level of service we received, Christine and PA Equity Resources made getting our first home much less scary! Christine was always available to answer our questions and to help educate us on closing procedures and the mortgage process. We were even able to close in 30 days and lock in a great rate! We would recommend this lender to all of our friends and family. Thank you, Christine, for helping to make this such a memorable experience for us.

Alan and I can’t thank the Ralston team enough. They helped us close on our first home by helping us organize documentation and answered so many questions with quick response times. Very personable service and made us feel comfortable asking what each part of the closing cost was. Christine made making offers on our houses simple and was always available. We hope she is around to help us when we buy our next property!
