Lori White does it again! She took great care of my client, kept everybody in loop of progress and closed it before contract closing date! Excellent service!

Customer service and ease of working with Jill Samsel was second to none. She made the process simple to understand and was always there to assist and answer our questions. Best company that we have worked with in so far when purchasing a home.

When my college roommate's husband was unexpectedly transferred back to the area after they sold their Olive Branch house, we needed to act quickly on a new purchase. Their previous mortgage company told them it would take at least 35 days to close their new home. Since they would be living with family until the new house closed, time was of the essence! I encouraged them to talk to Lori White at Walker Lending Team. Not only was Lori able to meet our (already short) closing date, the file was cleared to close after 17 days-including the Easter holiday! I've always had great experiences with Walker Lending Team but this truly set them apart to me.

I actually watched the CRM and Marketing Strategies Webinar live and it really helped to clarify how to clean up my process as far as keeping up with my clients and potentials.  I appreciate Brad Walker and his team going the extra mile to send out webinars like this.

"It was wonderful working with Mr. Owens during our home buying process. The quality of professionalism and service he offered were beyond what I have ever experienced. His professionalism was outstanding - he frequently communicated with us and made sure we were thoroughly informed throughout the entire process. As a result, we were able to close on our home in less than 35 days. His service was stellar. He allowed us to contact him at any time. He was flexible and met with us when it was most convenient for us. We were blessed to have Mr. Owens on our side during this time; it truly made our home buying experience a great one. Thank you, Mr. Owens."

I absolutely loved working with the staff at DeSoto Home Mortgage! Everyone was super helpful and I knew they really cared about me as an individual.

I highly recommend DeSoto Home Mortgage, they advised me through the whole process and made everything smooth and easy!

I have had the pleasure of working with buyer's that have used Lori White and Brad Walker with Desoto Home Mortgage as their loan officers. Lori and Brad are both very professional and keep the buyer and me updated during the process. They do keep the buyer's personal information confidential. Lori even closed a loan for a buyer that I referred to her in under 30 days! Some other mortgage company's want 6 weeks to close.
Zola is always so helpful making beautiful, color flyers for my listings! That saves me time and money which I really appreciate! I highly recommend & do refer buyer's to Desoto Home Mortgage!

After using Desoto Home, I will never go to a bank to do a Mortgage again. Great communications, even after hours. I would get responses at 7-8 at night, near instantly and very detailed answers to my questions. My agent was Jason Cowgill and he was awesome!

If you are thinking of getting a loan for a home, go with these guys. Hands down.
Chris Houston

This was my first home buying experience and although at times it was stressful ,working with Desoto Home Mortgage was a breath of fresh air.

He seem to genuinely care about what our needs were and was very helpful throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Desoto Home Mortgage to my family and friends.

Anthony and Toni Berryhill


Definitely an awesome place to go with when it comes to buying a house. Jason Cowgill is amazing. I only met him a couple of times because he was able to fax or email everything back and forth. When we did meet, it was because the paperwork had to be original copy and he met me wherever it was easier for me and my husband to meet him. He made the process amazingly easy and way less stressful! I recommend Desoto Home Mortgage to anyone and everyone!! You won't regret it!!!

Amber Reyes

My VA loan with Desoto Home Mortgage was handle by Lori.
She has a wealth of knowledge on what my requirements are. I only need to see her one time for the consultation. After that, she would answer all my questions either by text, email, or phone very promptly.
Lori had made it lots easier with e-signature which save extra trips to the office. And not seeing 20, 30 or so pages of documents which would be very intimidation, and really ease on the eyes/mind.
Thank you so much for being patients and being so helpful with us, Lori.
I would definitely recommend her and Desoto Home Mortgage.
