Jim Tacka and Sandy Spring Bank were very helpful with not only my original mortgage in 2017, but also facilitated a seamless refinance for me in 2020. The circumstances we all are facing with the Covid pandemic has us all a bit uneasy, but Jim Tacka and the mortgage team at Sandy Spring Bank made the experience of refinancing not only pleasurable but completely safe as well. I look very forward to working with Jim in the future! Thank you Jim!
