"We LOVE Blue Water Mortgage Company! My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Garrett for three purchases (owner occupied and investment properties) over the last 5 years and we can't say enough good things about him. His professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness far exceeded our expectations. Our closings were uncomplicated and glitch-free. I would highly recommend Garrett and Blue Water Mortgage to anyone looking for lender, they are terrific!"- Lisa and Mark Cochran, Exeter, NH
"Garrett Collins far exceeded my expectations in efficiency & timeliness. He was friendly, accommodating, reassuring & easy to speak to. Thanks for everything!"- Gregory Morrissey, Hampton, NH
"Our broker Garrett Collins was both personal and professional at all times, and always available no matter what the need. Deadlines were always met, documents were ready when they were promised, and updates on the status of the loan were given. Throughout our entire interaction with Blue Water Mortgage, we could not be more pleased and have nothing but praise for the team with whom we worked. We would most definitely recommend them to anyone in search of a loan agency. "- Frank Garibay II, Brentwood, NH
"Everything was organized and extremely easy. All of my questions were answered quickly and explained to me in a way that a non mortgage professional could understand. "- A. Benoit - Exeter, NH
"I had a complicated return, because of being self employed. Garrett worked hard with the lender to get it done. "- T. Day- East Kingston, NH
"Thanks very much for your recent help in our purchase of a new home. While you've been most helpful and a pleasure to work with during previous purchases and refinances this most recent experience was the best one yet! Today's new mortgage procedures seem significantly more complex than those of the past and your expertise and guidance were most useful. Also, your knowledge of the appraisal process was extremely valuable when the appraisal of the home we purchased came in less than the original agreed upon sale price: clearly the appraisal process has also changed significantly since the meltdown in the real-estate market a few years back!"- P. Martin- Loudon, NH
"Everyone I've dealt with is terrific. They make the process seamless and effortless. I won't use anyplace else. "- C. Paccito- Exeter, NH
"Garrett and team was amazing! "- R. Holt- Greenland, NH
