Blue Ribbon exceeded my expectations throughout the entire process. Melody Cox, was the Loan Officer involved in this Purchase and was always one step ahead. A very smooth transaction. One of the best I have been involved with!!

Melody was very helpful throughout the whole process of my Mortgage Lending. Every time I came to the office everyone was very polite. This was a great experience and I will definitely recommend people to this office.

Luckily, we were referred to Melody at Blue Ribbon Mortgage in October of 2015. We were in the middle of buying a house with another mortgage company and at last minute they denied our lending. Melody guided us into an FHA Loan. She skillfully gave us a list of items we needed to do and just as she promised,6 months from the time we meet we returned to Blue Ribbon ready to buy. Melody was amazing and guided us every step of the way. Pam, Jenna and Melody helped to make our dreams come true! They stuck by our side every step of the way and never gave up. Thanks for your help!

I wasn't the best client, I was recently divorced and didn't have the best credit. Jolene was the great!!!! She very professional throughout the whole process. I'm not sure I could have done this without her. It would have been very easy to get disappointed but she navigated me through step by step and made my situation manageable. I give her the highest rating. Thank you so much Blue Ribbon.

Christina was more than pleasant to work with and made everything as painless as possible. She came highly recommended from a friend and I more than willingly will pass that recommendation on to anyone interested in a home loan.

Christina made my home buying very successful! She was very up front with what was needed and made the process go smoothly and got it done so fast. Before I talked to Christina I was working with another mortgage company in town and everything kept changing from what I needed or had to do and even to the amount I was pre qualified for!! Christina at was very up front and told me what I qualified for and nothing changed through out the entire process. I would recommend Blue Ribbon Mortgage to anyone that is looking to buy a home or Refinance. I'd tell them to go talk to Christina before you talk to anyone. They are a 5+ star company in my opinion! Thanks a lot for everything you do Christina!!

Blue Ribbon is such a great place. They made things so easy. Christina is absolutely amazing! She made the process so easy. As first young, first home buyers we had no idea what we were getting into. Christina made things simple and explained everything to us in terms that we could understand. She broke all the details down for us. She told us exactly what we needed to do and to bring to the appointment when we met her. She is such a down to earth, helpful person, and very enthusiastic. We couldn't ask for a better person to guide us through this process. Thank you for everything! We will be recommending Blue Ribbon to everyone!

Blue Ribbon Mortgage does earn the Blue Ribbon with me. Christina and her staff were very instrumental in getting us the right loan for our home. They were in constant communication with us which made the loan proccess more bearable.The ladies at Blue Ribbon Mortgage always had my best interests first. There were times throughout the loan proccess we were not sure if the loan was going to go through. Christina and Melody worked extra hard to make sure the I's were dotted and the T's were crossed. They even had a plan B if plan A didn't work. I would definitely recommend Blue Ribbon Mortgage for anyone's Mortgage needs.

We have financed through Blue Ribbon Mortgage & Investments a number of times, and each time we are amazed at how painless they make the process. Christina Riemenschneider and Pam Perrett at Blue Ribbon Mortgage are a professional team from the start and are always available to answer any questions we had. Their expertise and concern for the customer before and after the mortgage process is above reproach. I have recommended Blue Ribbon Mortgage to several of my friends and they were all very impressed with how smooth the process was.

Without Christina's efficient, outstanding and professional follow thru with our condo purchase we wouldn't of closed especially in a two week time period! She lead us through the whole process and was prompt with answering my many questions with absolute honesty and patience. I would highly recommend Christina Riemenschneider at Blue Ribbon Mortgage & Investments.

At Blue Ribbon Mortgage, you are NOT just a number or a way to make a buck. Christina and her staff really care about their clients. Christina went the extra mile for us on our VA Home Purchase. We were approved and then turned down by another outfit in town and our Realtor, Josh Uhre recommended we call Christina. We were really impressed by her knowledge and "get it done" attitude. Because of Blue Ribbon Mortgage, Christina and her team, we now own our own home! Thank you Christina for not giving up and being a local lender who cares about the community we live in!
