LendingTree Home Equity Loans review
I had an amazing time getting a loan with Lendingtree. They made it easy, fast and affordable. I am definitely going to recommend them to all my friends and family. My wife is super happy too and I'm not paying a crazy interest rate.

LendingTree Home Equity Loans review
Looking for the BEST home equity loan--shop no further. Call John Lacy at Royal United Mortgage (317-912-1497) or email him at John.Lacy@royalunited.com. This loan advisor and his company deserve a six-star rating for their generous terms, lowest interest rate, closing speed (2-4 weeks!) and most of all, integrity--a rare characteristic in today's world. You don't even need to shop around--just call John--he's a genuine straight-shooter who delivers MORE than he promises. There, I just saved you all weeks of looking at mediocre lenders. Ask for John Lacy, and tell him Larry Connor sent you to him.
