Dan Meisel recommends Terence Flannigan

Prof. at Notre Dame

I did not meet with Terrance personally and all our interactions were by phone or emails. We needed a loan for a purchase of a home upon moving to CA from another state. Terrance struck us as a straight-shooter, tells it as it is. He provided us with his estimate and we compared it to others. His estimate was competitive so we decided to take it and we never regret it. As it turned out, the closing was delayed several times, which required modifications. At all these stages Terrence provide us the options and suggested his recommendation, which we did follow. After the two months of the process I can express my thanks to Terrence: Honest, professional, efficient and responsive to the needs, assisted by an excellent team that follows his leadership.

Kaitlyn Kunkel recommends Gary Stevens

Wellness Coordinator

Gary was by far the best lender I've ever worked with. He was friendly, prompt, and always professional. We chose him because he was very honest and was straight forward about numbers, unlike other lenders we had spoken with. He also had our best interest in mind and found ways for us to get better deals, rates, and even a better over all loan than we initially set out with. From start to finish he always stayed in touch and was able to work hard for us to make sure we closed on time. We would recommend Gary to anyone and plan on using him again in the future!

Keely Hawk recommends Jean-Paul "JP" Gudka

I had an amazing experience in both the refinancing an investment property and the simultaneous purchase of my new home. JP was such a pleasure to work with! He was always available to answer any questions I had, and the process with two loans was so easy, seamless and quick - not what I expected. I was very surprised and extremely happy with the results. With all the challenges of purchasing a home, I don't know how some people do it when their loans don't go smoothly and they have to deal with the complexity of a estate transaction too. I was very fortunate and I recommend JP wholeheartedly. Thanks JP!

Tom Fu recommends Uvas Yu

Engineer

Uvas is an amazing loan officer!

She is very helpful and responds very fast. I asked her many questions about the loan and she always answers my question with 5 minutes, even when it was at midnight.

She is very experienced and knows all the answers to fix my problems. She summarized my questions and put the answers in a well organized table which is very clear for me to understand.

She is very considerate and understands all my concerns and always helps me effectively.

I am 100% sure that there is no way for me to get the house without her help on the loan. I am now living in my new house -- thanks to the help from Uvas.

Anthony and his greater team were great to work with. I received a great rate (lowest in the industry), a great loan and great service. Anthony was very responsive and timely in resolving matters.

Kenneth Galvin recommends Lori Bautista

Maintenance Data Monitor

Lori, was knowledgeable, very approachable and extremely efficient in all aspects of our loan process. She was responsive to all our questions and concerns. Never did she make us feel like we were not her only priority. We had a clear and un-hindered line of communication as well as quick answers for question. Lori made our loan process feel like a very simple matter even though we know she worked very hard to get us the best product. Her cheerful and professional attitude was a welcome presence during a very exciting yet stressful time. I would not hesitate to work with her again or recommend her to anyone.

Juan F. Avalos recommends Anthony Joseph Madruga

Anthony Madruga first assisted me in purchasing my first home over 10 years ago. This was at a time when there were devious adjustable loans being issued to homeowners, which resulted in the 2008 Housing Market Crash. Mr. Madruga was very professional and honest. He went above and beyond helping me secure a safe and just loan. This loan, over time, allowed me to stay in my home even after the price of my house had dropped over 100K. Early this summer I once again reached out for Mr. Madruga’ s honest expertise, asking him to assist me in refinancing my current home. At that point I was on the brink of foreclosure. As before, Mr. Madruga, went to great lengths to research and secure the best loan possible. In the end he saved me close to $1,000.00 on my monthly mortgage payments. With my job, and the over 100-mile distance between his office and I, it was difficult for me to submit and gather all the applications and numerous paperwork required by both the Office of Veterans Affairs and the lending company. Mr. Madruga made the process easy and stress free. He was always reassuring, and found quick answers whenever an issue presented itself. Mr. Madruga and his team did such and exemplary job that it I would easily recommend him to everyone I know. My family and I will always be grateful to him for helping us save our home.

Kenneth Thompson recommends Kaycee Pugel

Lorraine Dale recommends Anthony Joseph Madruga

Anthony was able to get me a great mortgage rate and then was able to extend the rate at no cost to me when unexpected complications arose during escrow. Anthony met me at the escrow company on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. I had been asked to sign all the loan documents that morning. Anthony was there to make sure everything was done and expressed mailed so the lender received everything the following Tuesday. I think he did an outstanding job and sincerely appreciate the extra efforts he made to make everything move along as smoothly as possible.

Bob Genchi recommends Tony Cota

Director of Tech, Husband of rockstar, Father of superstars!

Tony is more than a loan officer, he's a master of financing. He'll guide you through the whole transaction, fully transparent along the way, answering any questions you have, even the non-loan related ones. He's a pro and it shows... he works hard to earn and keep you business, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone for a future home buying transaction.

Denise Porter recommends Anthony Joseph Madruga

Anthony did a great job in securing our home loan. He made things so easy and explained things so clearly to us. He kept us informed all the way through so we would not be anxious and we could focus on the rest of what goes along with buying a house. Thank you Anthony we will definitely look you up the next time we are in the market for a loan
