We had been in escrow for nearly three weeks with a big bank when they suddenly denied the buyer on a home purchase. Greg was highly recommended to my client and at this point she was so desperate not to lose this home, she called Greg. As many of you know how challenging it is to close escrow even with a 30-35 day escrow period, Greg had loan approval in three business days, worked closely on the conditions with the buyer and had loan docs in escrow 14 days (10 business days) from stating the process! No small task.

When all hope was lost, Greg and his team stepped up...even the escrow company acknowledged the fact that she had never seen anyone move as quickly as Greg and his team.

Bravo Greg! You are one of a kind and a pleasure to work with.

Greg is extremely knowledgeable and definitely your go-to guy for any home purchasing questions/needs. As a first time homebuyer, the process is daunting, but Greg helped us along the way and helped us buy our first home! We couldn't have done it without his hard work, open communication and willingness to close the deal. We appreciate everything he and his team have done for our family. We are forever grateful!

Greg Sandler is an amazing broker. When my family was forced out of our rental home of 12 years, we had 75 days to figure out if we could buy our first home in this crazy Bay Area market. Greg explained every step of the way and our choices thoroughly. Every decision we had to make was carefully positioned so we could weigh the pros and cons prior to going forward. Greg was especially helpful when the emotion of the situation got the best of me. He always kept a level head and forged forward with calm determination and the necessary flexibility to get the deal done. We were in our first new home in 70 days and Greg was the quarterback leading the team all the way to victory. We just finished our first year in our amazing home and went back to Greg for our first refinance which also went swimmingly. I've recommended Greg to my close family and friends and would recommend him to you any day of the week.

Greg Sandler went above and beyond to make our loan happen! He was diligent in finding the right program for us. Just when we thought the timing wasnt right, he pulled a rabbit out of a hat. Today we are sipping lemonade poolside and living our dream thanks to Greg.

We just financed our first home purchase with Greg and it was a great experience!
He worked with us to get us the best rate possible and was patient and thorough with all of our questions. He took the time to walk us through things and make sure all the information was clear and we understood.
In the end our payment and our money down was lower than we anticipated! He helped save us money upfront and over the term of our loan.
We would absolutely work with Greg again and recommend him to our friends and family!

He also worked really hard to get our loan processed as quickly as possible, always being proactive to solve any issues that came up. I would recommend him and his team to anyone! He made our dream a reality! Thank you!

We have worked with Equity Home Loans on multiple transactions. They will do whatever they need to do to get a loan closed that fits their borrowers needs. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking at buying a new home or refinancing. They are an honest company and the service is unmatched!

We recently refinanced to a 15 year loan using EHL. Greg was our mortgage broker. He and his staff were professional and we secured a very good rate. I would recommend this company.

Greg helped me but my own home at a young age. I was totally clueless on the process so he hooked me up with a realtor with ethics and then made the loan process so easy. Even for a ignorant paperwork phobe like me. I can't wait for him to find me my next home here in Marin!

After having worked with Greg, I have first hand experience with the depth of his extensive knowledge and expertise in mortgage financing. I don't think there is anyone I would feel more comfortable referring my clients, friends and family to than Greg. If Greg can't get it done, no one can.

Greg financed a home purchase for me in 2010 and completed a refi for me this year--2012. In a word: outstanding! Greg posses great knowledge, demonstrates clear integrity and puts my needs first, and is thorough and timely at every step of the way. Unless I get in the mortgage business myself (very unlikely)-I've found my loan pro for life!
