“The Green Energy Money (GEM) and SecurityNational Mortgage Company (SNMC) team have assisted my wife and I, twice, with refinancing our personal passive house designed home through their green appraisal program. Both times, we received a generous recognized valuation, competitive interest rates and the highest levels of customer service, professionalism, and personal touch that only years of experience, and a broad understanding of the financial/mortgage industry could provide. As a business owner and builder I refer clients from all walks of life to them on a weekly basis, and working with this dynamic team, continues to greatly benefit my customers and my own business. They are generous with their time, exceptionally competent in finding creative solutions, which seems rare in an industry that continues to become more and more rigid.”
