She takes a personal interest in each customer and is the ultimate professional! We would always seek to do business with Lurree!
Lurree was exceptional to work with. She told me what she needed very concisely and I was able to provide her the information she requested. And any questions I had she promptly answered, no matter how trivial. The HOMESTAR website is also very user friendly and easy to navigate. Overall our experience was great working with Lurree Pavis at HOMESTAR. They even got our closing moved up by a week. Thank you Lurree and Rae for the best homebuying experience ever!!
The entire HOMESTAR team did a great job and was very thorough in walking my wife and I through the entire loan process. Everything went very well and we would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a home loan. Our thanks and gratitude to the entire team!

The entire team was dedicated to meet our contract deadline and I can proudly say that they did an exceptional job in doing so and we actually closed a few days sooner. Lurree was there from the beginning to help smooth the process and answer any questions we had. Rae was great and patient when requesting items she needed. Everyone was working diligently to meet our closing date and they were all very professional and courteous. I would absolutely recommend HOMESTAR. Thanks to everyone who made our dream a reality.
The team at HOMESTAR was amazing. I sent several emails because it was my first time, and they always responded within minutes. They were very helpful and made this stressful process so much easier. They helped me through everything. I'm so grateful!
I have had numerous home purchases over my 73 years. I was referred to Lurree Pavis of HOMESTAR by my realtor. She was a clear, honest, and frank communicator to the highest level. She cared about our purchase and explained every step of the process. Simply put, she was GREAT, and so was her entire team. Best ever!
Fantastic experience overall. Ms. Pavis was incredibly helpful and communicated throughout the mortgage process. I couldn't have asked for better service.
Thank you for most pleasant easy and rewarding experience. You are outstanding!
