I recently had the pleasure of working with John Marbury and the entire team at SouthState for our mortgage, and I couldn't be happier with the overall experience. John consistently went above and beyond to address any concerns that I had, ensuring that this entire process was smooth and stress-free. He is the consummate professional and obviously takes great pride in helping his customers secure the best possible mortgage option. I cannot recommend him highly enough - he is truly the best in the business.
