In that it put us in touch with an excellent realtor, and was easy to use, I give the HomeGain system very high marks!
Mike has been fantastic to work with. He did everything he could to help and educate myself and my wife as first-time home buyers, but never tried to control the process, taking each step only as we felt comfortable and ready to make it. I highly recommend him.
