Customer Testimonials

  • We were referred to David Bell and Gershman  Mortgage by our financial advisor. We could not have been happier with the whole experience.  From the moment we walked in the door we felt welcomed and at ease. David spent a great deal of time explaining the entire process. He did it in a way that was easy to understand, very educational, and actually fun!  He was always available to answer any questions that came up during the process. David always had our best interest in mind and made this experience very positive and stress- free. We would highly recommend David and Gershman Mortgage.
