When my wife and I moved to Florida in 2020 we found a great credit union with South State. When it came time to purchase our new home we called Damean Searle and he was with us every step of the way! We had obstacles that most lenders would've avoided but Damean knew how much we wanted this home and he was dedicated to making it happen for us which was no easy feat! He took our calls during his time off and keep us informed as we progressed towards our closing. We couldn't be happier and we're so grateful to Damean and his team!!! All the best, Marc & Dyana Tessier
