He operates 1st Midwest Financial on Charlestown road behind Tumbleweed. He was shady and dishonest in my opinion, not out for the consumer like he advertises. I would not recommend him for homebuyers, refinances or anyone anyone else needing anything he offers.

Well, I was going to do a re-fi on my house for a lower interest rate & went through him. I told him I didn't have the $ for a couple of weeks for the appraisal due to sudden home repair issues & wanted to wait. He said he would pay for it & settle it all up when the deal closed. I expressed my concern over getting a large enough appraisal (with the housing market the way it is & some home repairs pending) and told him I wanted to back out & wait until some work was done - like replacing my pool liner, I didn't have a good feeling about it. He said he'd already spent all this time on my paperwork and had put $500 worth of his & his attorney's time into this process - basically throwing a guilt trip on me. I let it proceed & just as I thought, the house didn't appraise at enough. He then wanted the appraisal fee ASAP & sent me several nasty emails about it. He put a block on my re-fi with another person (Billy Brewer btw, & everything went through just fine & he paid for the appraisal) until I paid him his $. He caused us a lot of wasted time & problems. He advertises as a Christian. I reminded him that his greed got in the way when I wanted to back out of the deal. He used unethical persuasion to keep it going. I don't like that kind of pressure or the reaction I got when the appraisal didn't come through. He offered no plan if recourse or rebuttal, just wanted his money yesterday.

Good luck, I had the same problem. He wouldn't keep me informed & when he felt like we owed him money he was on us like white on rice. But i do hope it works out better for you - I just personally don't like stressing the Christian concepts when the ethics aren't there. I hope everything turns out well for you though & he gets back with you:)
