Why Choose Hurst

Outstanding Customer Satisfaction

Closed on our first home his morning and the process went great. Jay and his team do an outstanding job with communication and explaining everything along the way. For a first time buyer, they do a great job with every single step in the process.
Texags Forum
Hurst got me a great deal. I bought a new home so initially I dealt with the builder’s “preferred lender.” I told my builder’s “preferred lender” what Hurst’s offer was and he stated “sounds too good to be true, you sure he has everything included in his gfe?” Well, it was true and I couldn’t be happier!
Tony P
He beat our builder’s lender’s offer, was a whole lot easier and nicer to work with, answered our questions, and we closed on time. AND we got to work with Aggies all around.
We closed on our house with Jay in November. He did a great job for us as well. We had a few issues that were out of the ordinary, and he helped us get through underwriting on time and close on the original date.
