I have an excellent re-if experience with Joel Marks. I would & have Highly recommended him to Someone that is looking to refinance or buy a home. He kept me well informed throughout the whole process, and frequently spent a great deal of time with me when needed to answer any and all questions I had. The best aspect of working with Joel was that I never felt pressure. When asking him for advice, his responses were always to benefit me rather than a “lock now” approach to secure business for him.

This is the fourth time Joey has worked to help my family through a mortgage or refinance. We keep going back to him because we know we can count on him to find the right approach and make the process as smooth as possible. We've referred many family members and friends to him because we hold him in the highest regard.
