- Jennie B., Lockport, IL, April 2021

It was the best experience I have ever had refinancing. Top notch service. Korina was excellent. The last time I refinanced through the bank that owned my loan, and it was nothing less than a nightmare. I felt like I dealt with one idiot after another, and I kept getting tossed around between at least 7 to 8 people to complete the process. But working with First Centennial Mortgage I had only one person to deal with and that was Korina Bross, and she was amazing. Her communication and knowledge were beyond exceptional, and I would recommend her to anyone that I know for a refinance or for a new home loan.

- Kristen K., Oak Forest, IL, April 2021

Korina was absolutely fantastic to work with. She explained things in a way we could understand from day one and was always keeping us informed every step of the way.

I have used FCM 3 times now. Each time with Korina Hilding Bross. I'll be honest and say, I have priced shopped against FCM and while I have found some to be less expensive, they have made me feel uncomfortable in the way they presented themselves.

Her friendliness and professionalism are probably the biggest factor in bringing my mortgage needs back to First Centennial Mortgage.
