“HFL rocks!  Thanks to you, I have a new roof and energy efficiency improvements to my historic castle-house in West Village, Detroit.  I was impressed by how easy and fast your process is.  Only later did I find out that when my parents came here from Israel in 1978, they received a loan from HFL as well.” – Leor Barak
