Robin Patronik of Guarantee Mortgage was very helpful in negotiating the complicated and at times tedious bank requirements that resulted in our successful refinance--a zero cost arm loan.

She had kept in contact with us over a long period of time and initiated the process when terms and conditions met our needs. Her estimate of time to close was spot on and we can now rest for a while with a favorable rate.

Can I give 6 stars? If you are thinking about purchasing a home or refinancing, do yourself a favor and at least talk to Donna Aldrich. She's everything that you'd want a mortgage broker to be--honest, knowledgeable and friendly to talk to! At the beginning of the pre-approval process, my TIC partner and I talked to two other brokers who did not take the time to put the work necessary to make this difficult transaction CLOSE! Throughout the entire process, Donna was always on top of her game, easy to get a hold of, anticipated anything that could come up with the lender down the road, and, most importantly, was willing to go above and beyond the call of duty! Not to mention how she helped manage my anxiety outbreaks to a relatively tolerable level--all the while doing everything she can to smooth the process. While the rate is certainly an important factor in any loan decision (and Donna obtained a great rate!), you want to work with someone who you can trust and rely on, rather than someone who delivers false promises. Based on my experience, I'd recommend Donna to anyone without any hesitation and will recommend her to ALL my real estate clients as well! Thank you Donna for making the single most important transaction of my lifetime come true! (And, how cool is it that we closed on Earth Day!) ?

We just bought our second house and Suzie was our mortgage broker. I could not thank her enough for her supreme service. Her communication is excellent. She will tell you anything (good or bad) in person and she knows her work very well. We had a not so good experience when we bought our first house, so Susie was a welcomed relief and we know how good she is. We highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks Suzie!

It has been a long, and rocky road with so many requirements and frequent interactions, but your professionalism and positive attitude have been key to help us navigate through it successfully. I am already recommending you to co-workers and friends... and hope that some of these referrals will make it your way soon. Thanks again!

Vince was wonderful to work with on our recent home mortgage. He kept us fully informed throughout the process and was always available and happy to answer our questions. He ensured that things went smoothly, and we were especially appreciative of his team's extra effort to help us close a couple days early. We've done several mortgages and refinances through Vince and confidently recommend him to our friends and family.

I have worked with Jay Totah for the past 16 yrs in either re-financing or obtaining a new loan. He has always made the process easy for me and my family, and he was fully transparent about the process which speaks to his character. I have used other lenders as well but always come back to Jay for his efficiency and attention to detail. I highly recommend Jay who is an honest hardworking lender. A rarity in this industry.

From the title company to the real estate appraiser, we received world class service. Without hesitation, I would recommend Vince for your mortgage needs.

I HIGHLY recommend Aisling to anyone for their mortgage needs. Aisling is exceptionally knowledgeable, responsive, professional and thorough. We had agreed to an aggressive timeline, with the seller, for our escrow close schedule. Aisling was consistently out in front of everyone involved in this transaction. She made sure that our loan was never an obstacle toward closing on our new home. I have worked with Aisling on many mortgage transactions. And, it is the same successful story every time with Aisling. Again, I highly recommend Aisling Ferguson!

We had a difficult seller with difficult terms and dates that kept changing. Aisling couldn't have been more strategic and helpful in accounting for these changes. There are many stresses to consider during a large purchase, but with Aisling handling the mortgage we were able to really focus on the terms and contingencies of the sale and our experience with Guarantee Mortgage couldn't have gone more smoothly. Highly recommended.

This is the first time I had worked with Debra. She had been working with my clients before they had started to work with me. Debbie made this the easiest, quickest escrow in history. At a point where banks are making it difficult to complete escrows without issues throughout the process, this transaction went without a hitch. And, we were completely approved pretty early in the process and able to close days early, which made my clients ecstatic. I will definitely be working with Debbie again and recommend her for your mortgage needs.

Thanks to Donna's help not only I bought a house, but got a mortgage that is manageable. She made the experience of getting financing for the house effortless! She took care of everything, and stayed on top of it throughout the whole transaction with MY interests being considered all the way. I'm very grateful for having such awesome person to work with. I will definitely recommend Donna's work to my friends and family. It's very refreshing to find someone who is knowledgeable, professional, and cares as much as she does.

Fif is amazing! I went through a post-separation property division, requiring refinancing of a vacation home and it was not easy. She was patient and stuck with me, even when it seemed like it would never happen.

Fif and her staff are easy to work with, quick to respond and exceptionally professional. I feel indebted for the support and thrilled with the end result.

Thank you!
Rebecca Carter recommends Fif Ghobadian
Home Buyer
Apr 11, 2014
Fif was a wonderful and professional mortgage broker and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. As a first time home buyer, I needed a little extra information than I think I will need next time. When I contacted her about pre-approval, she didn't just ask for my information and send me a pre-approval letter, she educated me about what to do to remain eligible (i.e. put my down payment into an account and let it season a couple months in order not to confuse lenders) and guided me through the final process in a way that was clear and manageable despite my busy work schedule.

Fif looked at my strengths and weaknesses (strong income but limited down payment) she was able to design an excellent configuration of loans that was both creative and far more effective at meeting my needs than I would have known to ask for myself.

Lastly, Fif promised and delivered on our 28-day closing schedule despite a handful of obstacles and needs from the lenders.

Robin has diligently serviced my mortgage through multiple refinancings. She has delivered the best rates and overall mortgage terms for each successive refi. She has maintained oversight on the market and promptly advised me when a new refi opportunity makes sense for me.

Robin has followed through on every promise and demonstrated that she is supportive of my interests throughout the negotiation and funding process. She has kept me apprised of every detail and clearly informed me about changes in terms and conditions. And she has been responsive to answering and clarifying all my questions and concerns

She is diligent and has demonstrated integrity in servicing my needs and expectations. I have full confidence in recommending Robin Patronik to anyone seeking mortgage financing assistance.

Apr 7, 2014
Pete and Tom went above and beyond the call of duty for me recently! I had used Pete before for a simpler transaction when I purchased a building with a friend in 2004, and that was great. So I called him again on this one.

I have learned the hard way over the years that not all friends make good TIC partners. The time had come to buy out the partner, but that meant refinancing the whole building with just me on title. That made it a bit risky for several banks, but Tom and Pete manged the whole process, and knew which banks to go to and which were a waste of time. This was a new and scary process for me, but they were terrific. They kept me calm and managed the transaction with flexibility and creativity. I'd use them again in a heartbeat!

As real estate agents we have been very fortunate to have had our clients work with Debbie for many many years. Unquestionably Debbie is one of the most committed, effective and thorough loan agents that we have ever met. We have consistently found that Debbie never promises anything that she doesn't believe she can do and she is very sincere and honest in everything that she does The good thing is Debbie can do just about anything.
Chuck Russell recommends Aisling Ferguson
Apr 1, 2014
Although I work for one of of the biggest banks on the planet and they offer "employee loans," the best they could do was a 40 day close. Aisling did it in less than 25 days. No surprises; no requests for additional or unusual documents. All straightforward and honest, delivered on time and under budget. Great personality, great results. I wouldn't go anywhere else next time I need home loan assistance. .
Kathryn Martocchio recommends Jihad "Jay" Totah
Consumer
Apr 1, 2014
Jay stays on top of the loan process for you. We have used Jay several times over the past years for loans to purchase new commercial properties and to refinance commercial and personal properties.

With our latest loan poor Jay had to really stay on top of the loan processing people. The appraisal was turned in to the loan officer late, and had inaccurate content, this caused delay in the closing of the loan. We were worried about loosing our interest lock. Jay was able to work with the processor at the loan company to get outstanding questions answered quickly which allowed them to closed within the interest lock time frame.

I would recommend Jay Totah to anyone looking for a loan broker for commercial or personal properties.

Alma was extremely helpful, and patient with the purchase of our home in December. We started working with her a few months before the purchase and with each inquiry we had, it was answered for us in a timely, professional, and very informative way. She was always availalbe and stuck by our side ensuring that the best home we liked met our mortgage and loan budget.. The home was one of our top choices and we appreciate all her help and support in making this happen for us.

Apr 1, 2014
Aisling originally helped me purchase a home in December, 2005 and when I wanted to refinance in 2010, it was no question that I would return back to her for her guidance. The economy was not quite in my favor at that time and we couldn't make the numbers work, but she worked hard to help me out such that 3 years later, when conditions had improved, I was prepared and ready to try again. With Aisling's perseverance and creativity, we succeeded with a very favorable refinancing package. The experience was a thrill ride along a path of volumes of paperwork. There was no way I could have successfully done this without Aisling's experience and guidance. She's the best!
Dr. Keshav Goyal recommends Rose Sullivan
Rose refinced my two loans in a short time
Mar 29, 2014
Thanks a million for refinancing my two loans. You completed this task within 2 months with minimum expenditure on my part. I contacted you on January 12, 2014 to find out whether you do loan refinances. This was followed by an XL file that contained my income and expenses along with a question as to how much money I should transfer from my IRA account to qualify for refinance. You promptly calculated and suggested to me that I am ok to qualify. At that time, I was not so sure but you were. We signed loan applications on 1/27/14 and appraisals were done on February 4th and 5th. The final loan documents were signed on March 3, 2014 and new loans became effective as of March 10, 2014.
Meera and I deeply appreciate your help and a job well done. Please keep up this excellent service to your other clients.
Judy and Jack recommends Donna R Aldrich
Newly wed condo buyers
Mar 28, 2014
Donna Aldrich was indispensible in assisting us in obtaining our mortgage.

Donna expedited paper work, called and coordinated with our financial consultants. Because we did not use a real estate agent, Donna made sure we did all the things that should get done to make the deal happen.

She also arranged meetings with other professional involved with the loan application and because of a quickly approaching fixed dead line to complete the purchase by the end of the year Donna moved everything along at lighting speed.

When we had questions, Donna was so knowledgeable that she could explain the intricacies of the process so that we felt comfortable and confident that progress was being made. She was always in touch and always available. I felt like we were her only client, and she was working hard and overtime for us.

As newly-weds and a first time homebuyers, it all was a complete mystery. Never for a moment did we not feel that Donna was so on top of everything. We now own our home, and facing the inevitable remodel.

We appreciated Donna’s effort that we gave her three prizes. Flowers for a job exceptionally well done, brandy to sooth the nerves, and special chocolates because she is so sweet.

Guy gets things done as promised. When I needed a mortgage loan in 30 days, Guy was unfazed and did the job on time and absolutely as promised. More over, Guy has a superb staff and in this day where banks instigate a virtual paper snowstorm, that staff was invaluable and made the onerous task doable and trouble free. Additionally, Guy does not walk, he runs, and I liked that. I highly recommend this man and his staff, as they act and do as you'd hope professionals would

We very much enjoyed working with Debra and would recommend her to anyone (and have already, in fact). She is very responsive, extremely knowledgeable about a huge variety of mortgage products and really knows the market. She also was able to answer all of our questions quickly and thoroughly.

Debra worked in harmony with our agent on multiple offers in the competitive SF market, and most importantly, the final one that was accepted. Her reaching out to the the selling agent to outline our financing qualification ultimately led to getting our offer accepted. I would happily work with her again.

To Whom It May Concern,
Please find this letter of recommendation for Alma Portillo, representing Guaranty Mortgage Corporation. I began a refinance with this lender in January and after a prior difficult attempt at refinancing my property with more than enough equity to make this a smooth transaction, I began working with Alma.

Her professional rapid response to questions and concerns was amazing. She quickly and clearly always sent me information. When I need to sign forms many came via email attachment with simple to follow instructions on how to complete the forms.

It was very clear that after a few correspondences I was working with a true well-schooled professional.
Without a doubt I stand by this conscientious and dedicated knowledgeable professional. In a field of many Alma is defiantly someone you can count on in an often confusing and frustrating process.

Cordially,
Barbara

This is the second time we have worked with Debbie on a refinance project. In both cases, she was great to work with. She kept the ball rolling briskly and kept us informed every step of the way. There were no surprises and I don't know if it was luck or talent, but the package ended up being even better than Debbie projected. The first time we refinanced, we shopped around a bit and settled on Debbie. This time we just called Debbie.

Aisling is super knowledgeable and one of the most responsive people I have ever done business with, she was available 24/7 and went " above and beyond" to help me hit all the deadlines. I was traveling for business throughout the transaction and she really helped keep things on track. She is well organized, pro-active and communicated regularly with me and the real estate agent. I felt very confident having Aisling as my partner in the loan process, it went very smooth and I also got a great rate. I highly recommend Aisling and look forward to working with her again.

Jihad not only is extremely knowledgeable in his field of expertise but he's as honest and hardworking as the day is long ! We've had to work a few times with other loan advisors and mortgage brokers and that's when we absolutely realized how wonderful working with Jihad really is. Why ?
Because he believes in giving you the best possible service he possibly can- and it really shows ! He was very timely in providing the information we needed as well as very thorough. In addition, he's a really likeable guy, which makes dealing with the stress and complexities of dealing with refinancing that much easier. I highly recommend Jihad and his services. He will take great care of you !!

I have been working with Pete and now Pete & Tom for the last six+ years. They have helped me finance two home purchases and refinance another. Not only were the rates they were able to get me better than anywhere I could find (and, believe me, I shopped around), they made the process as easy as it could be, which is saying a lot given that my work with them started at the beginning of the mortgage crisis and has continued during a time when banks are very restrictive and demanding in the type of documentation they require.

Over the years, I have recommended Pete and Tom to a number of friends and I believe every single one of them who met Pete & Tom and who ended up buying a home, went with them and were happy with the results.

Aisling Ferguson came to us highly recommended by a close business associate and we now know why. Aisling completed our successful nonconforming refinance of an investment property during a challenging divorce and business situation. Aisling is a knowledgeable and effective advocate and successfully shepherded our mortgage through the approval process. This was a very high maintenance loan process that required a significant amount of additional documentation, background information, and verification. Aisling was very accessible, helpful, and responsive throughout the process and did not restrict herself to “bankers hours” to get this refinance accomplished in a very tight timeframe. Best of all, Aisling was a pleasure to work with during the entire process. I would strongly recommend that you consider Aisling Ferguson as your next mortgage broker.

I have known Alan for quite a few years. Alan has always conducted himself in a very professional and caring manner. More than anyone I have ever dealt with in this industry, Alan truly values the process of building long-term relationships.

I recently had to go toe-to-toe with the San Francisco Assessor-Recorder's Office regarding a property tax issue. In short, the city inappropriately increased my property taxes 12-fold and they were also seeking $45K in back-taxes. Although Alan could not help me directly, he recommended and outstanding real estate attorney (Janet Fogarty) who was invaluable to me during this very arduous 2-year process.

Alan has not only helped me but several of my friends to refinance our homes during the past 20 years. Alan is always current on industry trends and has forgotten more about the real estate industry than most real estate professionals will ever learn.

I highly recommend Alan.

N. Sun recommends Susie Kim
Mar 9, 2014
Susie was introduced to me by my agent during my house-hunting, and I'm very fortunate she was. I can easily speak to her friendliness, knowledge, and attention to detail, but I would rather spell out how she exceeded my expectations as a mortgage broker. My situation was a little more complicated- I had just found a new job and more importantly, just became a first-time landlord. Since I had no rental income history, I found that many other brokers would be unable to assist me, but not Susie. Not only was she able to provide me funding, she made the process easy for me, clearly spelling out all the required documentation, directly communicating with my property manager back on the East Coast, and quickly communicating potential road bumps. Best of all, with the heated real estate market, thanks to Susie being able to expedite funding, I was able to set more favorable terms to close, which ended up setting me ahead of competing bids. It's safe to say that I would be going to her in the future, and I hope that a reader of this review is sufficiently compelled to do the same.

Mar 1, 2014
I have known Alan for over 25 years. We’ve been colleagues, and now, a friend and his client. There are few people you meet in life that leave an impression on you forever – Alan is such a person.

In the early 1990’s I decided to dabble in the mortgage loan business and joined Phoenix Mortgage. My interest was mostly to be involved in the real estate business and had no sales experience what so ever. Alan, at the time, was the branch senior Sales Manager.

I’ll never forget the first day we met and the sales orientation meeting we had. The next day I wrote my first loan application from the very first call I received. Why? I followed Alan’s instructions to the T. And it’s that very sales orientation meeting, and what I learned, that I treasure the most. It wasn’t the sales technique, or how to sell that I remember, rather the message and how to be a better listener. He taught me the importance of being thorough, understand your customer’s need, don’t be afraid to say no and most importantly be honest to yourself and your client.

After my years in the mortgage I decided to move on but always stayed in touch with Alan. Alan is the first person I recommend to friends and call when I have a real estate loan need or simply a real estate related question. And true to form, there was one occasion when Alan said he wouldn’t be able to help me and suggested alternatives. Alan always keeps himself up to date on real estate matters and I consider him one of the more knowledgeable real estate professionals.

Alan is now working on probably the 6th or 7th loan for me. I know all will go well because Alan explained all the changes that have occurred in the loan business in the past year and how it could impact my situation. Alan did his due diligence and fully and clearly articulated what to expect throughout the loan process.

I would not hesitate to recommend Alan for your real estate loan needs or simply asking his opinion about your situation. You’ll come out of the conversation with a complete understanding pertaining to your loan.

Alan was instrumental in helping me obtain the best mortgage loans. He provided a lot of information to help me understand about various financing options and ultimately select the loan that was right for me. I've refinanced several times using Alan and have always been satisfied with his services. He is very well versed in the mortgage business but he is able to explain things in laymen's terms and he is willing to take the time to answer questions. I also appreciate that he puts the my needs first and will not recommend a particular loan or refinance unless it is in my best interests, unlike the companies out there that are completely focused on making the sale. Alan is also very personable and has a good sense of humor. I definitely would recommend him

I give Donna my highest recommendation, and, knock on wood, hope to make it 3 in the not-too-distant future.

WOW. What can I say, Jude really pulled out all the stops for me in my refinance from an FHA to traditional 30-year fixed - we started the process almost a year ago, and I was unable to complete the refinance for various reasons and was a little disheartened. Jude stuck with me and - this is the awesome part - CALLED me out of the blue six months later when she thought conditions were perfect for me to complete the re-fi, based on the financial goals I'd presented to her.

Well, she was 100% right. And she was super fast, and super efficient with my time, and gave me everything I needed to understand the package and make all the pieces hold together. And when the process was done, I ended up saving significant funds at closing and took a huge bite out of my monthly payment. All my goals met, and Jude made it happen!

I'll definitely be buying her a drink to celebrate, and of course singing her praises to anyone who is in the market for a home or re-fi - call Jude!

Donna worked very closely with me thru a challenging & frustrating ReFi process. She never gave up when we would run into problems or road-blocks. She found solutions to the problems and stayed on top of the problem areas until they were resolved. She was always available to answer my questions & give me encouragement when I got discouraged. I know she had other clients but I felt I was a priority & had her attention thru the whole process. I would highly recommend Donna to anyone looking to re-finance.

I am SO thankful to have found Aisling. She truly made the entire home buying process so much less stress. My husband and I were first time home buyers and totally overwhelmed by the loan process before we met Aisling. She took the time to explain all the details so we fully understood everything. She was so organized and detailed-oriented! Aisling was available when we needed her, wrote pre-approval letters at a moment's notice and hustled to get everything done for us.

If you want someone organized, aggressive, understanding, experienced and on top of her game...I highly recommend working with Aisling!


At the beginninghe took the time to go through all the details

Feb 13, 2014
I am a first time home buyer so very new to this process. Luckily, my real estate agents highly recommended Debbie. From our first conversation I was confident that I was in good hands. Debbie took her time and explained everything thoroughly. My purchase was complicated by the fact that it was a 21 day close during which I was traveling for work. Debbie made the process easy for me and even called several people to get documentation required for the loan when I was having trouble getting it due to travel demands.

In the end Debbie was able to get me what the escrow agent described as a "sweet little loan" at a great interest rate! I highly recommend her services.

Rose Wilson recommends Natasha Lovas
Huge Fan of Natasha Lovas!
Feb 12, 2014
I recommend Natasha wholeheartedly and I wish I would have used her for my last home purchase. I found a great house I loved in Noe Valley, and the listing agent told me the only way I could get that house would be to write an offer with her and to use her lender at CitiMortgage. I called Natasha anyway for a rate quote because I used her to buy my last home and have also refinanced with her, without a hitch. Citi also told me I could buy this house with 20% down, and Natasha told me I would need to put down 25%. Her quoted rate was .125 % higher than CitiMortgage, so I went ahead with Citi.

It turned out to be a complete nightmare. I lost sleep over this. Citi kept requesting the same items over and over. They even declined my loan unless I put down 25% after all, so I was basically set up for a bait and switch with Citi. Every time I called them, I got a different story. I felt there is no accountability there. Citi requested paperwork up to the very last moment when we happed to be out of town, which just prolonged the nightmare.

My experience with Natasha had always been 180 degrees different. If I had to do it all over again, I would gladly have paid the .125% higher rate with Natasha and get a good night's sleep during the escrow period. CitiMortgage: never again!

John Fandel recommends Allan McAllister

Feb 5, 2014
Allan McAllister is a rare find. Simply stated, you will not find a better professional who you can trust will always look out for your best interests.

We recently refinanced our home in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis and great recession. There was only one reason we were able to secure the very lowest rate (apr) available to us - we owe it to the thoughtfulness, thoroughness, intelligence and persistence of Allan McAllister.

He was able to somehow navigate through what had become an insane, irrational home mortgage refinancing process. The process, rules and requirements seemed to be changing daily. What was most impressive was how Allan creatively used his knowledge, experience and personal industry relationships with other hard working industry colleagues to keep us in position to secure the very best financing possible. Throughout the process he never let a single item slip through the cracks, proactively kept us informed on what was happening, took the time to educate and consult with us on every critical decision and made sure to do everything possible to minimize the demands on our personal time.

I have been through over a half-dozen home financing and re-financing transactions over the past 30 years. This was the most challenging by far due to the well documented backlash of the financial crisis and subsequent great recession. We absolutely know that had it not been for Allan, we would have simply given up and missed out on getting the best result possible for us.

Allan has earned our sincerest thanks and appreciation for the immense financial benefit we realized through this transaction.

I would highly recommend Orlando and his team to anyone seeking a new or refi'd mortgage. This is probably my 4th mortgage experience with him. In this case, he supplied numerous options to consider, greatly facilitated the mountain of paperwork, and did a wonderful job of (politely) reminding me what was left to do next.
Good advice, great service, delivered flawlessly.

I am sure when the need next arises, he will be my first call.
BillS recommends Tom Banducci
Feb 5, 2014
Tom worked with our 6-unit building through a TIC conversion to condominiums. We thought it to be a good idea to go with a single broker for all our loans, but we had no idea how much difference it would make. Our TIC conversion required all six of our new loans to close on the same day which is no easy task in this day and age. Tom was instrumental in getting this to happen for us by working with all of our owners, the different lenders involved and title company to guide us to a successful outcome. He is professional, knowledgeable, patient (extremely helpful in our particular case) and has the tools and connections to bring everything together. I can highly recommend Tom for a TIC conversion or for any lending needs you have.
Ankarino Lara recommends Tim Higbee
Founder & CPO - Thismoment, Inc
Feb 4, 2014
Tim Higbee... where to begin? My wife and I have been working with Tim back close to the turn of the century, when he so expertly assisted us in purchasing our first property, a condo in the Castro, San Francisco. At the time, I figured we didn't stand a chance! 2003-2004 was time of extreme real estate craziness in the bay area, with seasoned buyers routinely overbidding and boxing out first-home purchasers. Tim was patient, creative, and just incredible to work with, and somehow managed to make us look the part. We were accepted, moved in, and have been loyal customers of Tim ever since.

We've refinanced the San Francisco condo once, we've since purchased two properties in the Pasadena area of Los Angeles, and even just completed a refinance of our now principle residence just before the end of last year.

As I have given this advice to friends, colleagues, and well, anyone who would care to lend an ear: you would be insane to not work with Tim and Guarantee Mortgage. That's the long and the short of it. When they talk about funding your dreams, it's no joke! Before you cross anything off your list as an impossibility, pick up the phone or email this wizard. Be honest and forthcoming, come with a great sense of humor and explain your plans and desires clearly (no matter how ridiculous)... I think that you'll be amazed at the magic he wields, and refreshed by his unwavering loyalty and commitment to his customers (who really, feel more like partners). Don't be surprised if you get an even more aggressive rate just before the close, or get that always welcome, but unexpected, email one day in the future with refinancing options that are just too good to pass up.

You're entering a true partnership... this is not your average vendor/customer relationship.

Extremely satisfied partner, 5 times over-

Christopher Labrecque recommends Eric Leithliter
Homeowner
Jan 28, 2014
Eric is a responsive, honest, thorough and extremely competent mortgage broker. My wife and I own several rental properties which significantly complicated the mortgage application process for the purchase of our home (primary residence). Eric was always on top of any concerns that a lender may have and headed off any problems with our application before they happened. Rather than simply tell you what you want to hear, Eric will explain the risks and issues that a lender many have with your loan application and help you gather the necessary documentation to alleviate the lender concerns. Eric was also very good about discussing our situation with prospective lenders before he provided us with a pre-approval letter. When Eric gives you a pre-approval letter, you can be confident that a lender will fund your loan at promised interest rate. Whether you have a simple or complicated financial situation, Eric will cover all bases, find you great interest rate and close your loan time.

As a realtor working in a competitive market, the importance of having a mortgage broker that you can count on cannot be overemphasized. When I send clients to Aisling, I know that I can rely on her to perform within crazy tight deadlines and to get the deal done on time. More importantly, I can trust that my clients will get excellent customer service and guidance from someone that is friendly, responsive and highly knowledgeable.

Aisling takes the time to form real lasting relationships with her clients. She is great at listening and evaluating each individual's situation to find the best loan product for their particular needs. She is incredibly generous with her time and dedicated to her job. She truly goes above and beyond what is required of a mortgage broker to help her clients.

When someone comes to me in need of a mortgage broker for a purchase or a refinance, I refer them to Aisling. She is a great problem solver and has come thru for me every time, even on the trickiest of deals (and there have been a few). I can't recommend her enough!

We had consulted with Julie several years ago on another refinance and were completely impressed by her knowledge and readiness to go the extra distance. She is THE BEST!

Then, after that project, Julie stayed with us for two more years as we deliberated another situation, tracking, collecting, guiding and teaching us until we timed our best opportunity this past year. Julie's expertise and experience, her patience and excellent communication with our family members, enabled us to better understand all the options and to determine the wisest choice for our family. Julie simplified a byzantine process. We trust Julie completely and continually refer her to our family and friends.

We had planned on getting pre-approved, then finding a house, but we fell in love with a place and ended up in a rush to push our paperwork through. Phillip let us know exactly what he needed from us in order to speed us through the approval process for our first home. He even referred us to an amazing real estate agent who was as professional as he was, and worked hard to get us our place. We were first time homebuyers and Phillip held our hand through the process. He didn't talk down to us even though we had no experience with mortgages, pre-approvals etc. Instead, he was very clear about what we needed to provide, and as soon as we sent him information, he was working hard to get it organized and submit it. I am so grateful to him and I know that we wouldn't have got our dream home without him.

He helped me navigate the complicated world of the the MOH and was patient and available to talk through any concerns/questions.
Brendan H. recommends Guarantee Mortgage Corp.
Jan 10, 2014
Phillip worked with my partner and I for more than a year while we searched San Francisco for a house. He was always patient, and never tried to push us into a loan or signing something until we were ready. He was willing to run our credit and prospective scenarios before we had even made an offer on a place. There was never a time I couldn't ask Phillip a question or two, and his accessibility made him extremely easy to work with. If he didn't know the answer, he was always getting back to me in a timely manner. I know someday when we go through the house hunting process again, Phillip will be the person we call right after the Realtor!

I have recommended CJ to my clients for the past ten years. He has loads of experience with mortgages, but most importantly he is someone that under promises and over delivers, a rarity! He will not promise you the moon to get your business, but he will deliver what he offers. His ethics and knowledge are a real treasure, and when I have a difficult question he is the person I call.

Phillip just closed our refi. We had an initial conference call with him and we discussed our situation and what we were looking for. Turning in and signing documents was very straight forward. Both Phillip and Erin made our refi pain free. Very happy with the results. Would definitely work with them again.

Allan recently handled the mortgage for our home purchase. The transaction wound up being far from smooth, and Allan was always right on the ball with creative ideas about how to work around roadblocks. He worked tirelessly to get the job done, and was available nearly 24/7 to address any questions, concerns, or problems that came up. On top of all that he always did it with a smile on his face and a pleasant demeanor. I can't recommend his work enough, and will absolutely use him again in the future if the need comes up.

Everyone says pretty much the same thing about Phillip. Very professional, polite, thorough. All that is very true. My situation was pretty tricky and had a lot more twists and turns. I spent over 2 hrs and countless emails with Phillip getting it all just right. This was months before Phillip even had my business!

When he was done, he sent me a nice followup note. From the moment I started thinking about a mortgage to the point where the money was in the bank, Phillip was very open and complete in his communication. I can't recommend him enough. I wonder how he has time to provide such great attention to everyone.
Maximillian David recommends Tom Banducci
Jan 6, 2014
Approximately one year ago, I asked a friend for an important referral. I needed a mortgage broker who could handle a complicated/difficult refinance of my home. My friend unequivocally recommended Tom, without hesitation.
It is hard to describe how happy I have been working with Tom. He made what can be a tedious and challenging experience a pleasurable, and need I say, successful one.

Scott did an excellent job walking me through my first home purchase. He's really sharp, efficient, detail-oriented, and a great communicator. Scott found a great loan for me and did an excellent job explaining what everything meant and what was ultimately the best option for me. I highly recommend Scott.
MelDav F. recommends Guarantee Mortgage Corp.
Jan 6, 2014
I had little idea where to begin as I was faced with the task of buying my first home. I interviewed three or four lenders with a few different companies and ultimately found Phillip on Yelp. From the outset, and without any commitment of using his services, Phillip guided me through the process of applying for a loan and researching the best rates. With my unique situation, Phillip even reached out to others within his company for advice to provide me with the most comprehensive recommendation. Ultimately, it was this work up front that convinced me he was the one to run with.

Throughout the entire ordeal, Phillip expertly managed the relationships with every party, keeping me in the loop at all times and explaining terminology/documents that I didn't understand. What most appealed to me about Phillip's services was his general sense to stick on the conservative side of every decision. I believe this ultimately led to our loan approval, whereas I feel another lender might have pushed for a higher loan amount or made assumptions about our situation that would have denied us the loan further down the road.

Phillip put in the hours to get our deal done, even working remotely when the situation called for it. I would highly recommend him to first-time buyers, or anyone approaching a new home loan.
Michael O. recommends Guarantee Mortgage Corp.

David Forter recommends Allan McAllister
President & CEO, LCD Systems
Jan 3, 2014
Allan McAllister helped me obtain financing two and a half years ago with less than a sterling credit rating and being self-employed. My credit rating was hurt by debt incurred to resolve a divorce decree. Proof of income required some extra paperwork, but Allan worked with me through the entire process. The result was an acceptable mortgage on my current town house in Menlo Park.
A little over a year later, Allan helped me refinance with much better terms and rates. The result is a comfortable mortgage payment, a competitive rate and a nice equity cushion.
Allan was and is a pleasure to work with. He was there whenever I needed him or had a question. I recommend him for mortgage financing without reservation.

Scott is thorough and stays with the project until the end. We had challenges due to the market being down, and finalizing a large construction portion to be paid through the refinancing process. Scott was definitely a great resource and got us through to the end.
We would recommend Scott for any refinancing needs.
John S. recommends Guarantee Mortgage Corp.
Jan 3, 2014
It's pretty important to note when looking for a new mortgage or refi that you only want to have to go to one person. Why? Because you want your credit score to be as high as possible for a mortgage and if you get to many credit inquiries it can affect your score.

Phillip has been doing this for a while and I kind of get the feeling he's seen every potential hiccup before. He's got quick and simple solutions to get you passed the underwriting question marks (assuming there is a solution). He's very knowledgeable about the various caveats of the mortgage world and was easy to work with.

He's not tied to one bank so he has the ability to go shop the rate for you. He also worked seamlessly with my realtor, which made less work for me. I've heard all the horror stories about people trying to get a mortgage in the modern age of economic woes, but for me the mortgage process was 100% hassle free. I would definitely use him again.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Aisling "ASH". I have been fortunate to work with her on several occasions. As a So Cal realtor I was initially skeptical to use an out of the area loan agent but my client insisted I use Ash as she was his go to girl and he had worked with her on several occasions. From the moment I had my first conversation with her I knew we were in good hands. She is extremly, honest, informed, realistic and never over promises. Since that first transaction I have used her several times and refer her clients every opportunity I get. She is not only an excellant loan officer she is truly a good person her clients best interests are her priority and she never waivers from getting them the best deal possible
Did I mention she is really funny too :))))

Eric Youngquist recommends Orlando Diaz
Home buyer and client of Orlando Diaz at Guarantee Mortgage
Dec 28, 2013
Going through the home-buying process can be really stressful, but Orlando’s organization, experience and demeanor really put me at ease. He prepared me early on for what was to come in the process from the gathering of all my personal documents for the loan qualification and application to the final signing day with the title company. I felt I knew what was coming up and was fully prepared for the next steps because Orlando had already informed me.

It is clear that Orlando has the experience necessary to make the loan process easy for his clients. It was comforting to know that Orlando had everything under control so the process would go smoothly. This was my first time buying a primary residence so it was all new to me. I am a detailed person and had a lot of questions about the documents. Orlando was very patient with me and was more than willing to take the time to explain to me the loan and title information.

To top it off, Orlando is a genuinely nice person. He wants his clients to be informed and satisfied. I felt that he was a great partner for me and would certainly recommend him to anyone who needs a Loan Consultant.

Debra is a remarkable loan broker. I have worked with her for almost 20 years. She is able to look at a loan applicants financial situation and the real estate they wish to purchase, and then match them with a lender that fits. She stays current with rates, loan options and lender specific requirements. During the application process she pulls the client through the process, making sure every "t" is crossed and "i" dotted. When you work with Debra there are no last minute surprises. She understands that there are many entities involved (escrow officers, inspectors, the Seller's and their agents, lenders, underwriters, the Buyer's agent). She maintains long term working relationships with everyone and is a highly respected member of the real estate community!

She was there for me every step of the way, was very responsive (making herself available at all times, day and night) and made sure I got the best deal possible.

This summer Kara helped my clients Lance and Vanessa with their home loan and it was an easy, quick and un-daunting process. Kara was always available to speak with me and answered my clients questions quickly and explained the process so they understood what was happening at every turn.

All this from her offices in SF while the sale was happening in Southern Ca! Something I was concerned about at first but soon realized that Kara would be on top of the transaction and indeed she was! It didn't impact the deal in any way and would highly recommend Kara for your loan wherever you are in California.
Patti Lim recommends Rich Polonsky
Dec 15, 2013
Rich Polonsky is the absolute best & I can't recommend him more highly! He was always informative by contacting us when refi rates were low, but never did we feel pressured to go forth when timing wasn't right for us. He was extremely knowledgeable about getting loan approvals so would always be one step ahead by requesting only relevant information that would expedite & make our application as painless as possible. He was always respectful of our goals and always sensitive to work according to our agenda, not his. As a person, he was great to work and communicate with - always friendly, personable & sincere.

Rich helped us secure the loan on our house back in 1998, and we have since refinanced with him at least 2-3 times. Rich made an otherwise stressful process much more pleasurable. I have and will continue to refer him to the closest of family, friends and whomever needs an honest, kind, knowledgeable & utmost professional in the mortgage lending business.

Then when again we called him first off when we were ready to buy our first home. While we ended up not going with him in the end due to our developers preferred lender program, he was absolutely amazing to work with. He responds quickly, he is knowledgeable, and helps you find the results you need. He doesn't work just for commissions, he works for relationships and that means much more.

Andrea Beard recommends Pete Elting and Tom Barnes
Dec 13, 2013
If you are planning on buying a house, you need to buy one with Pete Elting and Tom Barnes at Guarantee Mortgage. "Dream Team" is an understatement...

We were referred to Guarantee Mortgage back in November when we started the process of buying our first home in San Francisco. My husband and I both work full-time jobs with demanding hours, so Pete Elting graciously met us on a Saturday morning and spent almost 3 hours going over the ins and outs of buying a home. He was incredibly patient, thorough, and kind explaining the basics which I would imagine most brokers would find annoying. His transparency about the entire process really put us at ease. We were pre-approved that day and the house-hunting began.

Once we got the process going, we were introduced to Tom Barnes who was our account manager. We instantly felt comfortable with Tom, like we had known him for years. He answered a ton of questions for us along the way and never made us feel like we were bothering him. He, too, had incredible patience. Once we started putting offers in, Pete and Tom were available pretty much 24-hours a day to write pre-approval letters for us. They responded promptly and were very honest with us about everything, we really appreciated that about them.

The entire home-buying process can be really stressful, but having a team that was honest, open, and responsive was absolutely critical. I don't think my emails ever went more than an hour or two without a response from Pete or Tom.

I can't say enough great things about this team. I also have to mention Shawn Leonard who helped with escrow, and he pretty much rounded out the perfect mortgage team. I would never buy a house from anyone else. THANK YOU Pete, Tom, and Shawn for helping us buy our first home!

We had made several attempts to refinance over the past few years only to be told that it was not possible. We are responsible professionals, business owners, good citizens with good credit history who had a personal tragedy affect our lifes. We really just needed our mortgage payment lowered to be able to continue tomeet our financial demands and keep our home of 25 years. Rose was willing to assist us in doing what was needed to acquire a loan with a lower mortgage rate, lower monthly payment and secure our future.
This undertaking was not an easy task especially in today’s climate of Loan regulations. Rose worked diligently for several months. When we hit a roadblock, she helped us take the action needed to stay on the road toward our goal. She kept us informed throughout the process and communicated effectively with all involved parties. We will always be grateful for her willingness to help us in a time of pressing need and would highly recommend Rose as a very competent and persistent Loan Officer.

Debra represented a buyer for one of my listings in Miraloma Park district of San Francisco. From the beginning to the end of the transaction, Debra was on it and we closed earlier than anticipated. Amazing transaction and Debra was, as always, professional and made the entire financing side of the transaction a breeze for everyone involved.

We highly recommend Debra Stebt as a loan consultant/specialist. She's professional, responsible and reliable. She was also very responsive to all the email and phone requests we had. With her help, we are able to close our home purchase much quicker than expected. This is not the first time we are buying a house, but by far, she's the best loan agent we've worked with. Now, for sure we know who to go to for our future home loan needs.

Debra recently closed a purchase transaction for my clients that exceeded my expectations. We were in a competitive bidding war and luckily the listing agent worked with Debra before and felt comfortable with our 10 day loan contingency. We were able to take off the loan contingency earlier and close almost 2 weeks earlier than the expected 30 days. I was a little nervous about the loan because there were questionable gift funds, employment issues, job history, etc. but Debra handled everything without a hitch. Even when she was out a few days during the transaction, her staff handled it without missing a beat. I would definitely refer other buyers to use her services in the future.

We have worked with Foster twice now, and have recommended him to everyone who is looking to refi or buy. Foster is professional, and incredibly responsive, amazingly responsive in fact. His style is calm/ direct and always clearly lays out all options objectively and with the customer in mind. He has an outstanding attention to detail and make sure everything is covered to make the process as smooth as possible. If ever in the market again, there is not doubt we will work with Foster!
Theresa Garza recommends Natasha Lovas
Happy Client & Family!
Dec 5, 2013
We completed a condo conversion in San Francisco in July, 2013, and Natasha Lovas and her team at Guarantee Mortgage helped to guide us through the complex refinance process. The secure online application at Guarantee Mortgage was easy to navigate, and uploading our documents to the secure site was very convenient.

We were not really sure what was required for the condo conversion, but luckily Natasha and Sara were very knowledgeable. They communicated with us regularly to make sure that we completed all of the necessary documents.

Natasha was very flexible, and was willing to work with the Title Company that we originally purchased the duplex from, which made the process that much easier for us. They also worked directly with our Insurance agent, as well as the Surveyor for the Condo Map.

Before we knew it, it was time to sign loan documents. Sara arranged for a mobile notary to come to our home, and a few days later we closed with two separate loans, and a great interest rate!

I recommend Natasha highly. In fact, I recently recommended her to my son and daughter-in-law who recently purchased a single family home. Somehow, during that the very short escrow period, Natasha managed to lock the interest rate at the precise best moment, so they got a GREAT interest rate. Their escrow was completed in three weeks and they could not be more pleased.

Kevin Casey has shepherded me through 3 home refinances over the last 15 years and I would not work with anyone else. He's a seasoned professional that never sugar-coats the truth, but works so hard to get the best possible deal.

He takes the time to get to know his clients well enough that he can do so much of the work without having to interact on every detail.

I had to ask him recently if the process got easier than before, because my experience the last time (2012) was the easiest ever.

He's well respected among his peers and by real estate agents and brokers. A native San Franciscan that people love to refer business to, because he always gets the job done right the first time.

Niisa Carter recommends Guarantee Mortgage Corp.
Dec 4, 2013
Scott helped me re-finance my loan to afford a special assessment incurred on my condo. My case was especially challenging because my circumstances gave already risk-adverse lenders reasons to pass me up.
Scott was patient and listened to my situation. He was able to see that it would be a sound investment for a lender if they were shown the evidence. So he took the time to speak to the all the right parties, from the home owner association, the home owner association lawyers, etc. to gather all the needed collateral to show lenders. He then patiently worked with the lender to show them evidence and provide them further contacts to resolve outstanding questions.
In speaking to my neighbors who were going thru the same process, I was much more successful with them.
Scott made the process easy. He made me comfortable in explaining the process and keeping me updated. And most importantly, he secured a great rate.

He is very personable and people savvy. He struck up a conversation with the seller's mortgage broker and found out where his kids go to school.
It turns out his kids go to the same school too. So they chatted awhile.

I would recommend him to anyone who wants a great rate, a great loan, fast and friendly service.

Nov 22, 2013
"I have worked with Aisling to buy three properties and hope to work with her on all of our family's future real estate transactions. I worked with Aisling to buy my first condo in San Francisco in 2004. I was a single woman, totally unfamiliar with the home purchasing process and nervous about it, and "certain" that I would not be able to afford a place I would love to call home. Aisling was super patient with me. She explained the process so clearly to me and happily answered my most basic questions. She helped me to get pre-approved for my loan and I was ready to make an offer for my favorite place -- and I got it!
About five years later, I was now married and my husband and I worked with Aisling to get pre-approved for a new home together. It was getting a lot harder to get loans and the process was generally taking a lot longer for people. Aisling managed to work with us and our real estate agent to keep our process moving right along and we closed on schedule and at an amazingly low rate.
Last year I contacted Aisling again about an investment property opportunity my husband and I were considering with another family member. Aisling provided a lot of very helpful and accurate information to me and my husband and we wanted to work with her to get our mortgage. Because we were buying the property with another family member we ended up having to use his broker at another company, rather than with Aisling. It was a super frustrating process to work with another broker who was much less organized and seemed to drop a lot of balls. Never again. We will only work with Aisling!"

We are pleased to highly recommend Pete who assisted us when we bought our condo in San Francisco. Our experience with Pete was so positive as compared with some of our recent transactions refinancing a rental property outside of San Francisco. Unfortunately we can't use Pete. Besides being fully knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate finance, as well as in refinancing, he is able to explain difficult financial matters in understandable terms. He follows through and keeps you in the loop throughout the financing process. When he establishes a deadline, it is met and if not, keeps you fully apprised. Pete has an easy going manner; he communicates clearly and ensures what he says is compredended. Pete is a good, attentive listener. We appreciate his professional work, continuous support, and unquestioned integrity.

Recently we tried to purchase a home since our realtor informed my wife and I that we are "preapproved" and opened escrow for purchase. One week before the closing date the lender officer that preapproved us made some mistakes and we needed to submit more documents. Apprently we were not "preapproved"!
We consulted with Julie after and had her look through the documents and she gathered the information we needed to try get a lender that would give us a preapproval. Julie gathered the documents needed in less than three days and went way out of her way and schedule to get the loan documents reviewed. After reviewing our documents and seeing mistakes that were on the previous loan application, Julie informed us that there's good new and bad news. Bad news is that we couldn't qualify to purchase the home under contract and we have to opt out of the contract, BUT the good news is that we will be ready to purchase after the New Year and Julie will be on our side to ensure we get into a home that me and my family can grow into and cherish. We are looking forward to the New Year and definitely working with Julie.

As a Realtor who has been in the business for over a dozen years, I can tell you that mortgage brokers like Tim Higbee are few and far between. Tim has been a major asset to my business for many years and I continue to recommend him for many reasons:
1. He is available and responsive to phone calls & emails.
2. He takes pride in doing the right thing for his customers.
3. He under-promises and over-delivers on regular basis by setting realistic expectations for his clients and then doing the best job he can for them - usually a better interest rate or loan product than he originally quotes.
4. He provides options for his clients, or if he can't provide a good product, he lets them know right away so they don't waste their time.
5. He is great at educating clients on different products and how the entire process works. He continues the education and hand-holding for his clients throughout the escrow if needed.
6. He will be there for his clients after close of escrow - just because he closes a deal doesn't mean he won't be there to answer questions or help you out.

It is with much appreciation for having worked with Tim on many transactions that I can enthusiastically recommend his services to anyone looking for a hardworking, thorough, and diligent mortgage broker.

He was always hands-on and there for us. I would recommend him without any reservations whatsoever.

My wife and I were first-time homebuyers and introduced to Allan by our Realtor. He met with us at our home on several occasions to help us understand the financing process, our options and the tradeoffs. As first-time homebuyers we had a lot of questions...he took the time to educate us and make us comfortable with the decisions we needed to make.

Subsequently, he helped us refinance our home and get a Home Equity Line of Credit to provide us with the flexibility we wanted.

Allan is a true professional... he’s knowledgeable, hard-working and dedicated. He’s always been on top of all the details, attentive to our needs and he’s kept us informed along the way...a real partner. Over the years, he’s become not only our trusted advisor, but also a true friend.
If you want the excellent financing, with no hassles, and if you are looking for the personal attention that typically only friends would offer, then you want to work with Allan.

I marvel at how hard he works to get the best possible rate along with the lowest possible payment within the terms we desired. If stymied by one loan source, he gets even more determined to find another that will agree to our/his terms. He makes it his personal mission to serve his client where other loan officers may balk or drop the case. I've seen him do so with many other parties, including an employee of mine. I like to say, "Friends don't let friends get mortgages or refinancing by anyone other than Kevin Casey".

Nov 14, 2013
My husband and I relocated to San Francisco from New York for professional reasons.

We had put our Manhattan co-op on the market, but wanted to purchase an apartment in our new city as soon as possible, before the New York property sold. Orlando worked with me for more than three months to help strategize and review our financial position. He identified the best lender, assisted in ensuring that we had the proper and most current documentation, and kept on top of a myriad of financial details in order to present the most effective dossier.

Given the stress involved in planning a move, and the additional concerns about securing a mortgage, Orlando was always calm, helpful, reassuring - and above all, absolutely reliable on deadlines. He explained every step and stage carefully and courteously; he reported regularly on progress; he followed up to be sure that priorities were being adhered to. He was extremely clear on deadlines and timing, and if anything changed in our roadmap - which it often did - he was very quick to explain. He was also very patient in answering the same questions more than once, and in keeping us abreast of the situation as it unfolded.

He had been recommended to us by our SF broker, with whom he maintained a very cordial and professional relationship, sharing information where necessary, but also seeking our approval to divulge information that might be more personal.

I can recall that he made himself available to us at all times - weekends included. He never made me feel that I was interrupting or bothering him, and his manner was unfailingly courteous, friendly, but always professional.

It was a pleasure for us to work with him and I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

We found Phillip on yelp, and we feel extremely lucky that we did. We had an unusual contract with the seller of the house we were purchasing, and in the current mortgage lending environment -- where even the most seemingly straightforward transactions have become difficult -- we knew we were in for a doozie. We spent enough time consulting around with other mortgage brokers to know some of what was coming and to be highly skeptical that we were going to find someone who could manage the process smoothly. Phillip turned out to be amazing through the entire process and to make it as painless as possible under the circumstances. He was reliable, responsive, knowledgeable and forward thinking, preemptively dealing with anticipated problems. On top of that, we got the loan under the terms we wanted! Call Phillip -- please do. People like this, who do a great job, ethically and kindly, should really get the business.

Phillip has now helped us lock in three different types of loans and in all three cases, he took the time to understand our exact situation and worked hard to get us the best rate possible. The most recent being a 10 year ARM for a SFH we just closed on. It also happened to be the most challenging - we had a 10 day finance contingency, were just on the cusp of qualifying, and the selling agent was incredibly overbearing. Phillip pulled a rabbit out of a hat for us with the loan he got us and managed the selling agent the whole way through.

I'd highly recommend him for any home buyer - be they are a first time or veteran home buyer!

Two years ago when we were looking to buy our house, our realtors recommended Phillip as their top-choice for a loan agent. As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but the first time Phillip and I spoke, he took the time to understand our exact situation and then walked me through the entire process. He made a scary process incredibly easy and he was then able to help us refinance for any even LOWER rate 12 months later. He also happens to be the nicest guy ever. I trust him completely, which is likely the most important quality to have in a loan agent.

Rich was an incredible person to work with. His attention to detail and proactivity is second to none and I am so appreciative that we had the opportunity to work with him in financing our first home! While the stress of buying a home is high, Rich was constantly on an even-keel and allowed us to have no concerns about our first purchase. I highly recommend Rich and am so glad that he provided us with the knowledge and facts to help us make our decisions intelligently.

Scott is a great mortgage broker. He handled the mortgage and then refinancing for my San Francisco condo. In both cases, Scott did an excellent job of finding me the best rate and of keeping the process straightforward and organized. I also appreciate that he's always around to answer my random follow-up mortgage related questions. I have recommended Scott to family and friends.

I have been a Realtor in the San Francisco Bay area for over 18 years. I've worked with many Mortgage Brokers in that time. Scott Hershberger is one of the best, if not the best! From a Realtor's perspective, the most important part of any deal is the lender. When you work with Scott, you can always trust him to tell you the truth. If he can't do the deal, he will tell you from the beginning. If he can do it, but there may be problems, he will tell you. And if things get off track, he will tell you the minute they do, not five minutes before you think you are supposed to close. And then he is right there helping everyone get back on track. And with Scott, those things seldom happen.

Scott is wonderful with the client. He's as good with seasoned buyers as he is with first time buyers. My clients use him again and again. They often seek his advice, and he is generous and kind with his time.

Scott has done many of my own personal loans for me. He is always my first choice when Clients come to me in search of a Mortgage Broker. When Scott is working with you, you can relax. He really is wonderful.

Scott has arranged several loans for my wife and I over the past 10 years and, without exception, he has performed at the highest level.

Scott is the kind of person you want to have around in an emergency because, from what I can see, he never loses his focus or temper. When the lenders come back with what appear to be absurd requests for this and that, Scott calmly works through the process with us and the lenders.

Scott is impeccably honest, open and forthright. His commitment to developing and maintaining excellent communications, including laying out a probable timeline for the loan process and then keeping us informed of where the deal is along the way, has shown though on each of our loans.

My wife and I recently purchased a property out of state. Even though Scott could not arrange a loan for us in that state, he helped facilitate it by offering to transfer our information from his office to the other loan officer, thereby saving everyone time and effort.

I recommend Scott Hershberger without reservation.

Marion Bennett, Coldwell Banker Half Moon Bay, provided the initial referral and your telephone consult stood out over the other two referrals.
