Any question asked, any thing I thought was a problem was taken seriously and promptly answered. All was done in a very business like manner and with respect. My wife and I were treated very well during our time in getting our loan for our house. – Purchase/June, 2018
We had contacted a number of brokers who were not getting back to us or communicating. Mr. Wheatley and his team always got back to us quickly, answered all our questions and were extremely professional. They were wonderful to work with. Richie is honest, hard working, thorough, kind, tactful, timely, and truly just top notch!. – Purchase/April, 2018
Richie Wheatley and the staff at Bay Capital Mortgage were incredibly accommodating and diligent throughout my home buying process. The entire team was reliable and easily accessible whenever I had questions or concerns, which was very important to me as a first time home buyer. When issues arose they were addressed in an effective and timely manner to ensure that we stayed on schedule. I could not have asked for a better group of people to stand behind me in purchasing my first home. – Purchase/July, 2017

Today’s closing went well. Thank you for your services. Mary at Venture Title thanked me for using you because of the quality and reliability of your work. I was very pleased as well. I intend to refer you to anyone I know who may be looking for a mortgage company to use! – Refinance/April, 2016
I was referred to Richie Wheatley by our realtor and it was the best choice we could have made in the home buying process. Richie and Bay Capital Mortgage were wonderful to work with. They made the home buying process feel quick and easy. Richie and the secretary Amy guided me through the entire process one step at a time. Even if I had questions after business hours, Richie was willing to answer them right away for me. What a pleasure to work with! – Purchase/June, 2015
Bay Capital Mortgage helped us go through the complex mortgage process with care and efficiency. Every requirement that was necessary was processed quickly so that we were able to obtain a good rate and not miss out on the house that we had so long desired. The requirements today are many, and the information that we sent back to Bay Capital was acknowledged immediately. If we had a question, it was answered with knowledge. Overall, there was a team under Richie Wheatley which showed care and interest in making the process work for us. – Purchase/March, 2015
Richie made what we thought would be a long, painful mortgage application process incredibly easy and stress-free! Richie was attentive, informative, and not to mention timely in helping to make sure all of the pieces fell into place for closing day. Richie also communicated so well with our realtors (listing and selling) and title company that our realtor couldn’t stop singing his praises! Thanks Richie and his Bay Capital Mortgage team. – Purchase/July, 2014
Wanted to send one more HUGE thank you for all your hard work in making this happen. I will keep sending referrals your way. You do great work and are exceedingly professional. Can’t express how much I appreciate everything! Being a new home owner changes perspective a bit! Please share my gratitude with Amy as well. – Purchase/November, 2013
We finally closed on the house today and settlement went smoothly. I just wanted to thank the both of you for helping me through the entire process. I now know why people say you’re the best in town, and I will be recommending you guys to my clients and friends. Thanks again! – Purchase/September, 2013
Mr. Dunn – It has been a few weeks since our property settlement, but I would be remiss if I did not convey to you our appreciation for the excellent job that Richie Wheatley (and staff) did with our mortgage. We had a couple of “false starts” on other homes, before finally finding the one where we are now. Throughout it all, Richie was most understanding and very helpful. His communications were always prompt and accurate. He is incredibly organized for a person that is also so involved with his family and community. I would recommend his (and Bay Capital’s) services to anyone. – Purchase/June, 2013
