Wondering how much you can finance?


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.

Wanda S. – Carolina One Real Estate

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.

Alicia D. – Goose Creek

Sonya worked hard on our loan and we appreciate her not giving up on us and our unique situation. We were thankful she put up with us on our bad days and we really appreciate all of her hard work.

Elaine B. – N. Charleston

I have worked with Sonya Pitt and her team for many years. The personal attention given to the client and to me during the process is priceless.

Nora T. – Carolina One Real Estate

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.

William R. H. Jr., PA

We can’t thank you enough for getting our VA loan approved when 2 other companies turned us down. You took time to detail our loan and got an approval. We will send everyone we know to you that needs a mortgage.

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.

Pope M. S.

Sonya assisted me in buying my second home! She was extremely professional, answered all my questions in a timely manner, explained every step in detail to me so that I had no surprises, and was by my side on the day of closing. Sonya would be a great asset to your home buying team!! Thank you for everything!

Jennifer B.

Sonya was incredible during the entire process. From start to finish, she helped us with everything. Whether it was 8am or 9pm, she would answer ours calls. This was our first time buying a home, and she made it a fun and enjoyable experience. I would absolutely recommend her, and I'm sure we'll be using her again the future!

Haley Victoria R.

Sonya is the best!!!!!! As a new realtor breaking into the business and learning the ropes she has made my life easy by totally handling the financial side of the process. She does an incredible job of keeping me in the loop regarding each step. Her knowledge is second to none but the 1 aspect that sets her apart is the customer service she and her team provides both to our clients and me.

Bob T. – Carolina One

This is the fourth house we have purchased and our experience with Sonya, by far, was the absolute best we have had. She blew the other experiences out of the water. She is fair and completely honest, always keeping her word and following through with her promises. Super knowledgeable as well!

Melissa F.

Very helpful at all times of day and many times way beyond normal office hours...it was a pleasure dealing with Sonya...

Lucie V.

After hearing many great things about Sonya around the office, I finally got my chance to work with her! I can't even begin to thank Sonya and her team enough for the work (late nights and early mornings) they did for my clients. My first time home buyers utilized Premier's credit repair services and once they were ready Premier helped them obtain a particular loan to help with the down payment. I was not familiar with this loan but Sonya was great on educating me and keeping both my clients and I informed the entire way! Thank you and I look forward to helping more clients together!!!

Abby - Carolina One

We just purchased our first home this week with the help of Sonya! We needed to purchase our home in a short period of time and Sonya guaranteed us that we could accomplish this. She and her team are very knowledgeable, organized and professional. They guided us through this process to ensure that we had everything we needed in order to close by our projected date. She and her team remained in contact with us to give us updates and Sonya was there with us at closing. Great experience and I would recommend her to anyone thinking of purchasing a home!

Dedra & Travis B.

Excellent to work with, made the entire process basically painless. Sonya knows how to get things done, without being pushy. Very pleased and thankful that we found her.

Angie & Robert M.

Amazing woman and team. Very professional, honest and respectful. They do whatever they have to do to get the job done. LOVE THEM.

Ben and Cherelle B.

Absolutely fabulous service and Sonya only makes promises she can keep. Closings always on time and with a smile.

Amy - Carolina One

Some of the best people you can ever work with and socialize with. Their determine to get you into the home of your dream and it's not just business it was actually care and concern. I'm recommending them to all my friends, family, and anybody who asks.

Carmaletta S.

Terry and I both loved working with Sonya and her team. So thankful for such a knowledgeable company to handle our loan and on a very short time schedule!!

Llywellyn - N. Charleston

My husband and I closed yesterday. 8 days sooner than projected! Sonya, Sherree, and the rest of the team made this whole process as smooth as it could be. Thanks to our realtor BJ Rodgers and Premier Nationwide Lending, we got exactly what we were looking for in less time than expected! We really couldn't have asked for a better experience, and will not use any other company for future lending!

Lindsey W.

Loved working with Sonya and her awesome staff. Thank you guys so much for keeping me focused on the end result; our Amazing Home!!!!

Jenny and Terry - Eutawville

I have been working with Premier Nationwide Lending for 2 years. What I have found is that they are always on time for closing on every single loan. The Premier team keeps me and the other agent involved up to date with the status of the loan and where it is in the process. If a problem arises with the client not providing something and they have had no luck, they will let me know so I can assist with the items needed. Majority of the time they have the buyer cleared to close weeks in advance of our scheduled closing date.

Fernando - Carolina One

Communication is a huge factor for me in the process with my sellers and buyers. The Premier Team always keeps me up to date on where we are in the process. I never have to call and ask because they call and email frequently with status updates. The service they provide is the best in the industry. My business has excelled since using Premier. They stay on top of referrals and make sure they meet face to face with the buyers providing a service that is top notch. I know once the buyer speaks to and meets with the Premier Team that they will be using them. This gives me peace of mind knowing they will be in the hands of the best professionals in the business.

Bj R. Carolina One

Sonya and her team are nothing but fantastic! As evasive as mortgages are today, Sonya made it soo much more pleasant. Her rates are enticing and support staff are genuinely fun and energetic, especially when dealing with the " I have to know what's going on every step of the way" people, like me! I will only ever use Sonya going forward when I need a mortgage or ReFi!

Chris D.

Sonya and her team made buying my house extremely easy. Everybody talks about how buying a house is hard but not with Sonya. I had all my documents in and my loan was approved in under 3 weeks. I highly recommend her. Also Deb and Al Walters are great realtors and Foti law firm made closing a breeze.

Daniel S.

Mrs. Sonya was amazing and made buying a house easy! She went above and beyond to make my experience the best that it could be. If you are in need of help buying a house she is the best around!

Cameron C.

Sonya and her team are amazing! They helped us throughout the whole loan process and I never thought it could be so easy. I highly recommend Sonya and her team to everyone! Thank you again for helping us get our Dream Home!

Victoria R.

Sonya and her team are absolutely AMAZING!!! They have made this entire process as quick and easy as possible!!! My boyfriend and I decided at the end of May we wanted to purchase a house so we contacted Sonya right away. Here we are not even 2 months later closed and moved into our new home! She was very responsive to all of my questions and explained everything throughout this process. I will be recommending her to all of my friends and family! We LOVE our new home and appreciate everything Sonya and her team have done for us!

Paige H.

Sonya and her team were so great to work with! Everything they did was super fast and organized. We always knew that they were working behind the scenes with our realtor to ensure a fast and smooth closing. I felt like all we had to do was wait on them to tell us the next step. I would highly recommend working with them!
