I serve on a team of several Realtor's and between us have used multiple mortgage companies. They have all had their various faults and for the most part have gotten the job done but none of them have given our clients the respect and attention that we felt that they deserved. My wife Deb and I were introduced to Sonya Pitt by another Realtor. A month later I started a relationship with a buyer that I had met at an open house that I was holding. I gave the potential buyer Sonya's card and they contacted her. This was the start of a relationship that Deb and I have come to cherish very much. Sonya's knowledge of the mortgage business give us a peace of mind when we refer her to our clients for mortgage help. What is unique about Sonya is the relationship that she establishes with the borrowers. There have been numerous times that she has copied me on emails while conversing back and forth with clients well after normal business hours. There have also been numerous times when I might have a question well after normal business hours and send Sonya an email or text and she almost always responds in a matter of minutes. Sonya Pitt is not your typical mortgage person, she goes above and beyond and has a way of "thinking outside the box" when the situation calls for some creative thinking. Sonya has made our life easier as Real Estate Agents and the Deb Walters Team gives her a perfect 10!

I highly recommend Sonya Pitt because I know I can trust her to take excellent care of my clients. She is prompt, professional, very knowledgeable, and is flexible in accommodating busy schedules and keeps me informed. But the thing that sets her apart from most loan officers is her attention to detail and the proactive approach she takes prior to submitting a loan for approval by underwriting. This initial extra effort is undoubtedly the reason for her high success rate in getting loans closed.

We used Sonya Pitt to purchase our first home in 2009! We had a great experience, got he best rate and our loan was processed quickly. We are now buying our second home are using Sonya again. Her professional, knowledgeable, and personal service beats others by a long shot.

What truly sets Sonya Pitt and her team apart from other lenders is they are confident with their services and they personally attend every closing to make sure it is a success. I have nothing but praise for them.

Premier Lives Up to its Name While Premier Lending may be new to South Carolina, its well established corporate environment, and seasoned professionals are redefining what local home owners should expect from their lender. Finding the perfect home is only part of the journey. To ensure that you purchase your dream home, you also need to find the right Lender, and that Lender is Premier. Sonya Pitt of Premier came to the rescue after another Lender pulled out the day before my scheduled closing. To add insult to injury, this Lender did not meet its own deadlines, and the seller was insecure in extending the closing date any further. I met with Sonya, provided her with the documentation she requested, and she obtained a valid pre-approval letter for me, provided me with a package to sign, locked me into a very competitive interest rate, and we closed within 3 weeks, even in the midst of a federal holiday. Sonya Pitt is not only the epitome of professionalism and professional ethics, she is a sincere and personable individual. Obtaining a loan today requires an individual who knows, understands and respects the regulatory and competitive environment. Sonya Pitt held my hand through the process, took away all my anxiety and was at my side during my closing. I feel privileged and honored to have worked with Sonya Pitt and Premier.
