Gordon is fantastic. This was our third engagement with him, and like the first two, he was very detailed, very communicative, and made the entire process smooth and easy.

This was our second time working with Gordon, and we were very happy with the experience. It was an especially difficult refi given the new and ever-changing pandemic-related regulations, but Gordon and his team made it all work.

Gordon is extremely fast, capable and dependable. We've very much enjoyed working with him recently, and over the years, and he's consistently found excellent terms to meet our financing needs.

Gordon is responsive, courteous, and got me the best rate. I’ve worked with him for both a mortgage and also a re-fi. I will definitely use him again in the future

I've now worked with Gordon twice, and each time I've been extremely impressed with his professionalism and responsiveness. Gordon most recently helped us take advantage of the dip in interest rates, and was able to find us a lender that credited near all of our closing costs. He previously helped us navigate the transition from TIC to Condo financing, which he is particularly adept at. Thanks Gordon!

Gordon helped us do a refinance for a condo conversion as well as a new loan for a vacation home. His team always makes the application process smooth and easy.

Gordon is very professional and patient with even the most complicated, yet, small refi. We live in a TIC, which presents its own financing challenges and Gordon knows all of the ins and outs. I highly recommend him as your mortgage and refi expert.

Gordon understood my situation as a first-time home buyer who had only lived in SF for 10 months. He helped me get pre-approved quickly, and worked with my realtor to make sure there were no hiccups in the process. He explained everything along the way and was incredibly responsive and clear. Couldn't recommend him more!

We reached out to Gordon just two days before the offers were due. And we didn't even have a pre-approval. Gordon managed to get pre-approval and the paperwork for us in this short period of time. Moreover, he recommended us some conditions that we put in offer that helped us to win the deal.
The approval process itself was smooth and transparent.

Working with Gordon was super easy! He is very knowledgeable especially on TIC mortgages. I also appreciate that he was prompt on getting back to me each time.
He is strongly recommended :D

Gordon helped us through a particularly long, complicated and onerous refinance. He was always very responsive and communicative and explained the nuances of refinance requirements with patience and empathy. Sometimes it just helps to hear "I know this seems silly but this is what the bank needs. We'll get through it." When we ran into obstacles along the way, Gordon worked with both sides (the bank and us) to get the best outcome. We highly recommend Gordon and his human touch. Thank you, Gordon!

Gordon helped my wife and I buy our first home, refinance, and then purchase our next home which was tricky since it was a duplex which we bought with another couple. He was helpful and professional throughout, explained things clearly, and I would definitely recommend him.

Gordon had the much needed expertise required for our conversion process from a TIC to a condominium. I had spoken to several other brokers before being introduced to Gordon. As soon as we spoke I knew was the right person to work with. And he was!

I highly recommend Gordon to anyone looking to Refi or for those shopping for a mortgage.

In our case, we worked through an unconventional sale (sans real estate broker) Gordon was super helpful and responsive

My wife and I just bought our first home and we couldn’t have done it without Gordon. His speed, organization and patience (with our naive and likely annoying questions) made the process surprisingly painless. Highly recommend.

My husband and I worked with Gordon on our first home purchase for a TIC in San Francisco. From the beginning to the end, Gordon was super organized and detailed about the requirements and arranged an online dropbox which was super useful in getting all documents in one place .

Gordon was always happy to hop on to a call to answer any questions we had and had very clear answers which we newbies understood.

He was very encouraging that the loan would pass and very realistic in what was possible - we always knew his timeline was on point and he made sure there was never a delay where he was involved.

We couldn't have done it without him and are grateful for his help and expertise!

Definitely highly recommend :)

Having been through the buying process several times over the years, I have worked with many loan officers. I have to say, Gordon is by far one of the best I have worked with. The process of setting up the loan and his level of knowledge made and otherwise stressful situation, stress free!
