Joel did a great job of keeping us on track of a lengthy, tedious closing due to the nature of the underwriting. Once we got final approval things moved Very Quickly and that was much appreciated. 4 days from final approval to keys in hand.

I've done about 5 refi's with Joel and he comes through every time with the best rates. He takes the time to explain everything and is dependable, trustworthy and easy to work with. I love his no fee approach. I highly recommend him. I've had many friends use him and they've all said the same thing.

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.
