The Reviews Are In
But don’t just take our word for it—see what our customers are saying about us.
Ms. Rae Drake. is knowledgeable, courtesy, Professional who is ready to go the extra mile when her clients need it. Thanks Rae for getting me home before Christmas!
Quick, friendly service during the whole process. I was also kept up to date with the progress of the loan; start to finish.
Rae Drake and her son David did everything they could do to make sure our loan was approved. I appreciate all the work and communication during the purchase of a home for our daughter. It was an awesome experience and I would recommend then to anyone looking for a home loan. Whenever I had a question it was answered promptly. I give them a 10 out of 10.
The whole home buying process can be stressful, but Rae made everything go as smoothly as possible. She was great to communicate with and answered all our questions/concerns thoroughly and got our loan closed in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend Rae to anyone looking to purchase a home.
My realtor told me that the most important part of buying a home is having a loan officer than you trust. It’s definitely true. Rae took the time to go through the loan disclosure as well as every other loan document, which is so important to a first-time home buyer. I wanted to know where every dollar was going. This home was my first real adult purchase, and it was important to have things explained in a way that I was able to understand. Not everyone understands that and takes the time to do that. She also had a great support system to get the loan funded in time for a 30-day close.
Rae Drake is truly a Mortgage Warrior
We just closed our third house with Rae Drake leading and guiding us through the process. She is simply the best. Her insight, guidance, expertise, and good humor allowed us to move smoothly through what would otherwise be a complex and confusing time … Rae was our hero on so many levels. She was encouraging, transparent, well-informed, and the best teammate one could ask for.
Rae kept us in a position to respond and to navigate a process that would otherwise be mysterious and overwhelming. Rae made the process a low stress, transparent, and understandable experience. In this instance, the third time is a charm! As we begin to settle into our latest home in a beautiful, remarkable neighborhood in our home state of Kentucky we are most grateful to Rae and her team. Our new home has the best features of our previous homes and many additional qualities that we appreciate. Because of Rae’s personal touch, her energy, and her tenacity (she really is a Mortgage Warrior!!) we were the beneficiaries of a great mortgage product with a great rate provided by a customer service oriented group. Thanks to Rae and her team our energy can be utilized in making our new house our home rather than having spent our energy wrestling through a mortgage process.
Not all heroes wear capes! Rae is the best!
Rae and her team were amazing from day one. Even with a very big bump in the road in the process(completely our fault), Rae worked diligently to make our dream happen. She never gave up and proved that experience counts in her field. Without her we would still be renting. …
Rae is a dedicated partner and advocate!
I cannot recommend Rae highly enough. We were in a unique situation and Rae guided us every step of the way. She was able to get us approved for a loan with a great rate, facilitate all of the paperwork and get to us to closing despite a number of hiccups from the loan provider, the VA, and the seller. She worked diligently on our behalf and was always responsive, sometimes late into the evening. Rae is a true partner and really cared about us – she made us feel like we were her friends and neighbors as opposed to a client. Thank you Rae!
I worked with Rae and David for about a year and a half and they never gave up. They worked diligently until we finally closed on our home. We are confident that we received the absolute best rate available. Thank you for your assistance and for helping us begin to set firm roots in Gainesville. GO GATORS!!!
Excellent Service. Dedicated to the Client.
Rae worked with us from start to finish on buying our new home. She was easy to work with; patient with our questions; and there for us every step of the way. We are first time home buyers and having her hands on, dedicated approach made what seemed like a daunting task, much easier. I for one, found her to be incredibly focused on us and our concerns and questions. We were her first priority and she made us feel like the only client. Without her we would not have made the decision we did. Thank you Rae!
Capabilities of Wonder Woman; Patience of Job
For us, Rae Drake was a combination of the capabilities of Wonder Woman and patience of Job. She stilled troubled waters, dealt with less than competent individuals on our behalf in order to facilitate the purchase and closing of our house. When crises arose, she resolved them. When less-than- competent functionaries put up obstacles, she mowed them down. She interceded in our behalf more times than we can count. She facilitated the process, and made it possible. We cannot recommend her more highly.
Wonderful to work with!a
Rae is was so wonderful in helping us purchase our first home! She was fast to communicate and keep us informed through the whole process. We had MANY questions as new buyers and she was able to help us learn so much!
Rae was instrumental in helping me and my wife purchase our first home. She made us feel comfortable from the first meeting and answered all our many, many questions throughout the process. Rae will work for you, Rae will get you the best possible deal, Rae will fight for you, Rae will get you closed on time! She came to our closing with a gift in hand and ensured our documents were correct before we signed anything. 5 star, top notch approval from us, you won’t be disappointed with Rae and her team.
Fantastic to work with!
Motto Mortgage and Rae were fantastic to work with. She was always patient with questions and helped ease the anxiety of purchasing my first house. Would gladly recommend!

Outstanding customer service!
Rae and David were extremely helpful in the process of buying our first home. They replied to all our emails, texts, and calls in a timely manner. They spent time with us going over paperwork and they were very patient with all of our questions. They provide excellent customer service and I highly recommend them.
We were so lucky to work with Rae!
Rae is an incredibly hard worker and saved our closing! We had previously been working with a broker who said what we wanted to hear but didn’t deliver the rate we deserved or put the work behind their words. We only had 15 business days left to close and decided we needed to shop around but were nervous about starting all over with such little time. Rae had our back from the first call. She eased my worries about switching so close to closing and made me feel very comfortable as a first time home buyer. A lot goes into the process and you really need to feel like you trust the person who is handling all your important information. Again, I never had to worry about anything with her. She got us a great rate and there were no hiccups along the way! Rae does what she says she is going to do and more to take make sure everyone is taken care of. We would definitely love to work with her again and will recommend her to all our family and friends. She truly is a superstar at what she does.
Alex and Mayra
As first time home buyers, my fiance and I went in not knowing anything about the process. We did know we wanted a mortgage company exceptional, knowledgeable and most importantly someone we could trust. Rae educated us from the beginning to the very end. She couldn’t have been more attentive and most of all honest. The magic she pulled no one else would have been able to pull. Answered our calls, texts and email at any time of the day or night. We are trully greatful for having the best of the best. There is no way we would have had this outcome with anyone else.
Rae Drake — Envoy Mortgage
Rae managed a complicated and often, obstacle ridden process with the utmost professionalism. Rae portrayed confidence throughout the process, which sustained me during vulnerable moments. Without hesitation, I would recommend Rae and David to anyone seeking a mortgage. Thank you!
Rae is an AMAZING person and a consumate professional
Rae Drake is the best in the business and is an amazing person. As a first time home buyer but not a young woman, Rae navigated me through a very difficult post-divorce time transition period in my life and she did much more than a loan officer was required to do. She took me under her wing and not only secured my loan, but she made sure we closed in a very short time period, at a good interest rate, she came to my house to sign papers, worked weekends and evenings, calmed me down on the phone, explained numbers and finances when I did not understand, she was compassionate and understanding, Rae went above and beyond her job description. I do not have enough positive descriptors for Rae Drake but simply put, my experience with her was nothing short of fantastic! Rae Drake ameliorated what could have been a very difficult time and process for me in purchasing my home in a timely manner. Thank you Rae for you support, your professionalism, and your friendship. It is refreshing to know that there are people like you out there helping others.
I can’t put into words how helpful Rae was! I am a first time home buyer who had no idea what I was doing and I seriously don’t think I would have closed on my home without her help. Rae walked me through the process, locked in a fantastic interest rate before they rose the very next day, and even showed up to my closing 🙂 I will recommend her to all my friends and family.
Rae’s expertise and sincere care were instrumental in purchasing our first home!
Rae and the team at Movement Mortgage were extremely helpful during the entire process of our first home purchase. My wife Danely, and I didn’t think purchasing our home would be this easy! We highly recommend her!! From the first conversation and even on the day of closing, Rae answered all our questions, was genuinely looking out for our best interest, and we never felt pressure. We had an enjoyable experience working with Rae. Her unique balance of professionalism, expertise, and dedication, while also expressing a sincere care for us and our future home, enabled us to confide in her and allow for this process to go by quickly and smoothly. She locked us in at an low rate within a day. We were able to close almost 2 weeks early! In addition, our final closing costs were several hundred dollars lower than what was estimated. Our expectations were exceeded across the board. Thank you Rae! We are extremely grateful for you and all your help!
My husband and I could not be happier with our experience with Rae. I have bought two other properties in my life and neither experience was as well managed as this one.
Rae is great!
We had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Rae to purchase our home in Gainesville, FL. She was able to answer all of our questions throughout the mortgage process (and had tons of patience with me not knowing much about what I was doing as a first-time homebuyer!), and further made sure that the closing process was seamless. I do not hesitate to give her my highest recommendation, and have made sure to pass along her contact information to friends and coworkers who have said they may be looking to buy a home.

Ms. Drake was the utmost professional in handling our financing needs. She was a problem solver and looked to generate good results, rather than simply push paper and earn a commission. I have and will continue to recommend her services to anyone in need of professional financing assistance.
Rae walked us through every step of the recovery process and somehow managed to …
Rae Drake is a miracle worker. Were it not for her, we would have lost this beautiful house that we are so proud to call our home now! We are first-time home buyers, and we made the terrible mistake of first going with a large corporate bank. We thought everything was fine, but then, only SIX days before our closing date, the bank decided that we no longer qualified for the loan! It was such a nightmare and truly an emotional roller coaster… Thankfully, however, we had a fabulous realtor who connected us to Rae Drake. Rae walked us through every step of the recovery process and somehow managed to close our loan in the matter of just a few weeks! Where big banks wait until the end to do your underwriting, Movement Mortgage actually does it in the beginning so you know what you stand from the start. What a concept: A mortgage company that is reliable, professional, and progressive. The best part, though, was that Rae Drake is genuinely a kind human being who was actually compassionate about our situation and helped us find peace of mind during the crazy transition. We would recommend Rae a million times over and hope she is enjoying the flowers we bought her.
A wonderful experience from top to bottom!
Everyone was kind and thoughtful during each step of what could have been a very complicated process! Rae was especially kind and went out of her way on several occasions to accommodate my limited technological skills! Thank you to everyone at Envoy!
