Simon is a thorough and meticulous mortgage banker. My case was complex and complicated. While most mortgage bankers would not have taken on my case or given up, Simon never did. He was patient, creative and explored all options. In the end, I was able to refinance at a spectacular rate without any additional points or unnecessary closing costs. Simon and his team are professionals and will get the job done. I will definitely be working with them in the future. Thank you Simon!

I highly recommend Simon for your mortgage needs. He successfully guided me through a critical refinance of my original home loans. Throughout the process, he was always accessible, provided prompt feedback and advice, and worked diligently to ensure that the loan ultimately closed and funded within the timeframe that my situation required. Again, I have no reservations about recommending Simon and I hope that you will consider him for your own mortgage needs.

Simon and his team provided us with excellent service. We were referred to Simon to help us secure financing for the purchase of our home after we had been rejected by other lenders. I can't thank him enough for all his help. I highly recommend him.

New homeowners!
Simon was a terrific partner who helped us navigate the often confusing process of buying a new home in an incredibly competitive LA market. After our first home fell out of escrow due to a low appraisal, Simon helped us scramble to expand our possibilities and spend a bit more money, which ultimately helped us buy the house we really wanted in the area we preferred. He and his team worked tirelessly to find the right loan for us. He is a no-nonsense professional. He takes the time to explain every aspect of home-buying to you in detail. I can't recommend Simon highly enough!

Simon and his team,i.e. Geoff,did a comprehensive job of securing a favorable refi for me. They kept me informed of the process every step of the way. Made calls when I had questions and followed up with answers. They were very patient,as I tend to be somewhat of a nagger when I'm unsure of a situation/process. I would recommend his services highly. He was refered to me by someone who I respect immensely when it comes to real estate concerns and she didn't let me down with the referral of Simon G. Atik.

Working with Simon was a pleasure, and he really made us feel like our loan was a priority. Our home buying process moved quickly, and Simon played a critical role in ensuring that our offer was accepted, and that the loan came through without a hitch - all on a very tight timeline. He is highly knowledgable about his business, provided expert advice along the way, and worked with us to secure a rate that we were happy with. I'd highly recommend Simon, and am grateful for all his help.

When my partner and I first sat with Simon to discuss the possibility of qualifying for a house, truthfully? I didn't think it was going to be possible. Now, not even six months later, I write this as a home owner.

From that first meeting to our final signature on the paperwork, Simon walked us through every step of what can feel like a daunting process. The communication was open and transparent. Simon was always available to go over details of the process and explain the 'fine print.'

My partner and I agree that Simon was an integral part of our ability to buy this house. I'm really not sure it would have happened had we not sat with him that day and moved forward in such a determined way. I recommend him whole-heartedly with the highest marks.

My experience with Simon Atik can be summed up in one word: DILIGENT.

During the escrow process, Simon was available at all hours to answer any questions we had. Simon was meticulous in his attention to detail, and he always kept us informed of potential issues, which were alleviated due to Simon's foresight and incredible knowledge of the industry. I am certain he can do the same for anyone in need of a mortgage specialist. No quit, all fight! Thank you for your wonderful service, Simon!

Simon and his team were excellent and if I ever refinance or buy another property I will definitely use his services again, We came to him in the middle of a quick 30 day escrow because the other lenders were not performing. Simon and his team work through the financing very quickly to help us close ahead of schedule. His customer service was excellent, his communication clear and concise, and his whole team was responsive. I've already recommended him to 2 friends in the 30 days since we closed. I have my house because of Simon and his team.

Let me start off by saying that I am very impatient person who has a tendency to ask a lot of questions. Have said this, Simon and his team were simply awesome. We could not be happier with the results and speed he was able to complete our loan. Since this was my wife's and my first home purchase together, we have numerous questions and concerns, all of which were answered by Team Simon. They were prompted in getting back to us and they were great at making sure we were updated at every step. I highly recommend Simon and his team.

Simon came very highly recommended by another agent, and after working with him, I know why. We just closed a deal for our mutual client yesterday, a week ahead of schedule, and it would not have been possible without Simon's responsiveness and diligence. Looking forward to working with him again soon!

We had a complicated mortgage situation as we were buying from out-of-state. Despite the time zone difference, Simon and his team were always very responsive and quick to communicate. He was very professional, and things went so smoothly we almost forgot we were buying a home! Thank you Simon and team for your outstanding service.

Simon and his team did an excellent job on our recent home purchase. Simon was by far the most responsive and informative person involved in our recent purchase. He helped explain the inner workings of the VA Loan Process and was available to do the same for the sellers. His team was efficient and thorough and allowed us to option for a speedy close which made our purchase bid more competitive. We gladly recommend Simon to any first time or seasoned buyers.

Simon was a pleasure to work with and made the re-finance of our home super painless. He explained everything in a way that made it all pretty easy to understand. He cam highly recommended from a trusted friend (who is a real estate agent) and now I know why.

Because of changes in my financial situation over the past years, my refi application presented many challenges. Thanks to Simon's due diligence, the refi has now been funded. His attention to detail and application of creative solutions far exceeded my past experience with other brokers. He is definitely a "one-of-a-kind" in his field.

Simon did a great job for getting me a mortgage in a record timeframe with competitve rate. He was proactive and requested all needed documents ahead of time so I can be prepapred. My case was not easy since I have not been in the US long enough so I had to organzie for things from overseas. We had our loan approval in 2 days after following all procedures. Amazing experience with Simon, very friendly, patient and professional.
