I have known Jay for several years as he would periodically reach out offering recruiting services while I was running a de novo bank in the Upstate of South Carolina. Always impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of the market, I called Jay for guidance when I decided to make a move after we sold the bank. He was invaluable to me as I went thru the recruiting process with several parties. He showed integrity, was quick to follow up and provided sound advice as I considered my next move. Based upon this experience, I plan to maintain a relationship with Jay and certainly am happy to offer this recommendation.
Jay was absolutely awesome! He helped us add an OUTSTANDING individual to our ConsumerDirect Mortgage Family!! There is no doubt that we will use his services again in the future.
