We've worked with Jamie for about a year, and he's been fantastic to deal with; they all are at First American - but Jamie has been truly outstanding. He was an excellent choice to do the second round of our bank financing, he handled our case quickly and professionally and with a miniumum amount of problems throughout the whole process. I give him very high marks!
