When asked why he chose to join the team at Legacy Home Loans, Billy stated, “I am so excited about the opportunity to be a part of a strong, local mortgage company that is committed to providing its loan officers with first-class tools, technology, and marketing.” He continued, “Legacy is 100% committed to providing a high level of service to its customers during the loan process and after closing. I have built a team that is committed to these same values and felt Legacy was the best place for us to give all of our customers the best pricing and best service in the business.”
