Kind words from Rick's Clients

My husband and I used Rick Schlager as our mortgage broker. He was great! He took the time to answer any and all questions we had, he answered our calls, emails, and texts at all hours of the day, and was always extremely professional. He made the entire process seamless. Highly recommend!

Top knotch service! Earlier today I was able to close on my new home thanks to Rick Schlager and his team. The sellers and I were anxious to close sooner than originally planned. Although a few issues came up at the last minute Rick and his team were amazing and pulled out all the stops to make our closing happen. Thank you for helping my family and I purchase our new home!!

Rick Schlager was wonderful to work with. He was always eager to answer any questions we had. We will definately reccomend him and Blue Water Mortgage to anyone trying to buy a home in the future. He made our home buying experience less stressful and that is something first time buyers always need. Thank You for your wonderful service.
They handled a very difficult loan very professionally. I highly recommend Rick and his Blue Water Mortgage team. I am self-employed and created a unique challenge given the nature of my business. I originally thought I did not qualify for any mortgage based on my profile but I knew if given the chance with the right lender we could make it work out. He and his team were very thorough as the underwriter went through everything with a fine-tooth comb to ensure that the loan was legit and would be paid back. Rick and his team worked very closely with me to get through this process. At the end of the day we are very happy in our new home and look to stay here for many years. If we ever do another mortgage we will for sure be using Rick and his team. The entire Blue Water group including the president was vested in pushing my loan through. Their estimates were also spot-on as many times I have found a surprise when getting to the closing table.

This is my second time working with Rick, thank you very much. He is exceptional.
Rick has been extremely helpful and responsive, it was really a pleasure working with him. The rates offered were very competitive, and I’m very pleased with the refinance.
As a first time home buyer, I had no idea where to begin with the mortgage process. Our realtor referred us to Blue Water to get pre-approved and we were fortunate enough to work with Rick Schlager. Even before we made an offer, Rick was extremely helpful and made sure we would be able to get approved for the condo we ended up falling in love with. Once the actual closing process started we stuck with Blue Water since our experience had been so positive thus far. They also have lawyers who will look over your P&S free of charge, which is a GREAT help during the stressful process. Rick was always available to answer our never ending questions, no matter how simple or small. I would 100% recommend Blue Water to anyone, especially first time home buyers. They made the entire process seamless.

This has led to repeat business and referrals from a very satisfied customer base.

I have been at Blue Water Mortgage since 2006 and I currently am responsible for managing the sales staff. In this position, I help other Loan Officers build their businesses, increase their referral networks, and ultimately help them close more loans for their clients. I am a graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Business Administration as well as Southern New Hampshire University where I obtained my MBA. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my children, Alexa (12) and Ethan (9). I am actively involved in the community through coaching sports, enjoy playing softball and golf and I am a member of both the Greater Manchester Nashua and Seacoast Board of Realtors.
