Fantastic! Highlands delivered what they said they would, and actually ready before our closing date. Most impressive - they were available for my questions all hours of the day and night. Professional and responsive. 


Two weeks into our closing process, the bank we were working with decided they could not help us. They recommended we try Doug to try and get the process done in two weeks. He met with us that night, and two weeks later, we closed on our house right on time!

Highly recommend Doug Shoemaker and his team!! They were very helpful and went above and beyond my expectations! I will be using them again with our next home purchase. These guys actually cared!

They were such a relief after all the trouble I went through with the other company!

Doug and his Team were so wonderful to work with!! I started my home buying process with a different lender that was a complete nightmare to work with. I found out the day before closing that I would not be able to close on time and that it may take another 20 days (after they had already been working on it for 45 days). My realtor stepped in and recommended that I talk with Doug. He called me right away and I could tell in just a short conversation that he was very knowledgeable and experienced in the business. Doug and his team were very personable, responded to any questions right away, and were able to get me to closing in just 1 week!!! I am so thankful for the service they provided. They were such a relief after all the trouble I went through with the other company! I highly recommend Doug and his team!!

This was out first home buying experience. We just moved to Illinois and knew nobody. Doug answered every question thoroughly in terms us first timers could understand clearly. Buying a home is a HUGE decision and we knew we made the right one after talking with Doug. He literally bend over backwards to make the process smooth and successful. It was reassuring to know that we could contact him any time to discuss the process and status of our loan.
