“I was fortunate enough to be referred to Lori Matta when I was contemplating purchasing my Condo in Beaufort. Lori worked with me every step of the way, making everything flow smoothly and effortlessly. Not only is she a true professional but an amazing person as well. I couldn't have been happier with the services provided, from start to finish.” - Wendi Schultz

Buying a home can be hard! My wife and I had heard the horror stories from friends. From getting turned down for loans, constantly shopping around for the best ones, figuring out who should do inspections, and worrying about who to trust were just some of the things we were concerned about coming into the process. 

Lori, along with her team at West Town Bank and Trust, truly made all of our concerns disappear. From the very first time we met with her in her own home, I trusted her. She was kind and wanted to talk about where we were in life in a helpful yet professional way. She answered any questions we had right when we had them, and even gave us some great recommendations about who to work with and who to trust. Our experience was seemingly flawless thanks to Lori and her teams hard work and dedication. 

However, we got more than a “loan officer” in our experience. I truly feel like we gained a friend. During the time we were under contract, my wife and I went through a tragic loss, miscarrying our first child. Lori was there for us, professionally and personally. She was very patient with us, and stayed willing to help in any way throughout the entire process, all the way up until closing (which also happened on time) and even after we moved in! 

Overall, we were very pleased to work with Lori and West Town. Buying a home, an experience that can quickly be filled with angst and anxiety, was instead filled with assurance and support. My wife and I are in the home we dreamed of, and are excited for the future!

Lori did a great job working with me long distance as I executed a move from California to North Carolina. She answered every detailed question I brought to her, as I am the painful customer who reads every word before signing any documents. I highly recommend Lori, she brings competitive rates, and top notch service. I will use her as a lender again.

Purchasing a home from more 4000 miles away is a daunting task.  Throw first-time home buying on top of that and it may seem unbearable.  After seeking out multiple lenders, Lori at Albemarle put us at ease.  Her knowledge of all things Coast Guard, the VA loan process, and working remotely made our purchase as smooth as possible.  She always put us first, answering all big and little questions with a fast turn-around time.  She walked us through each step of the loan process and guaranteed we were getting the best rate on our loan.  We highly recommend Lori and Albemarle for any Coastie looking to purchase a home.

Using Albermarle Bank & Trust was the best decision we made when we decided to buy our first home. From the beginning they offered the best rates and we instantly knew we were in good hands with Lori Matta as our Mortgage Loan Officer. She was there for us every step of the way and went above and beyond her job description. She insured we understood the whole process and each step a mortgage entails. However, even though they did their job, Lori Matta and Jennifer McClaren didn’t stop there. They ensured the whole mortgage process was a smooth one, but they also ensured our home and the moving process went as planned. And when it didn’t, they left my family speechless. Their kindness and compassion during a difficult transition assured we would be lifetime customers of theirs. Although, I am not sure customer is the correct word…because they don’t treat you like one. Instead, at Albermarle Bank & Trust, you are family. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my mortgage needs.
