Testimonials

Christine came with high recommendations and she definitely did not disappoint. Offer to approval in less than a month. As a first time home buyer I had no idea what to expect and I must say that Christine and Joanne made the experience easy. This team is top notch!

I highly recommend working with Christine! She was very informative and helped my husband and I navigate through the home buying process for the first time with ease. I greatly appreciated the time she took to explain each step of the process so we always knew exactly where we stood. Christine is very responsive and was wonderful to communicate with. When we thought of questions she was available to answer them quickly. I will definitely look to Christine for any future lending needs.

Working with a team like Christine and Joanne made the mortgage process less stressful. Christine helped us through what could have been an overwhelming ordeal. She kept everything flowing smoothly and on track to the closing. Would definitely recommend her for any mortgage needs.

The Ralston Team was recommended to me by my Pennsylvania Real Estate Agent who was recommended to me by my Las Vegas Real Estate Agent after I sold my home in Las Vegas, Nevada. Any move can be stressful but moving cross country to another state with different rules and regulations brings many more challenges then the usual move. The Ralston Team helped in every way they could to eliminate the stress. With their patience, understanding, professionalism, and due diligence, we were all able to work together as a team to get the job done. I would highly recommend The Ralston Team for all business and/or personal transactions as needed. Thank you Ralston Team for accommodating my personal needs and making my move back to PA a success!

Christine & Joanne were so amazing. As first-time homeowners, we had heard so many horror stories from friends and family about getting a mortgage, so we were nervous. But the Ralston's kept us calm, cool and collected and worked quickly to get us a great mortgage with an awesome interest rate in our 30 day closing period. The settlement company at closing said to my husband & I, "You are the most calm buyers I've ever seen." And that was true, because we truly didn't have anything to worry about. Thank you, Christine & Joanne! We are so happy to be homeowners!
