Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?

@Christian Wamsley -- Thanks for sharing those details on your rennovation.  Good job.  I needed a good lead on banking.  I will have to check out Candence Bank.  Another real estate contact has recommended Security Federal Bank and Queensboro.  I haven't tried either of those.  Did you happen to try either of those before your selected Candence?
