“Ryan and his crew are awesome! We contacted Smart Mortgage just to see if we would qualify in the near future to purchase our first home. We ended up qualifying immediately. We were definitely a handful, but Ryan got us through the process and into our home. We are forever grateful. No more moving our kiddos around. They love their new home just as much as we do. Thank you again Ryan”! Samantha Godwin – Pace, FL
