Adelle Plain recommends James Clark

Registered Nurse

James did a phenomenal job from start to finish on the loan for our new home. It started out as a re-finance but during the process we found the home we had been looking for forever! James didn’t skip a beat and made the transition from one loan to the next smoothly. He is very transparent in what is going on with the loan, explains all the fees in detail. We got a great interest rate which really allowed us to get more of a home. James checks in weekly and was always available by text, call or email. James came recommended to me from several other co-workers in my office and I will continue to recommend him. Thank you James for all your hard work on this purchase for us!!

Pablo Arvizu recommends Simon G. Atik

Simon is simply the best!
I don't have the words to describe how amazing him and his team were throughout our entire process. They were diligent, professional, friendly, patient, and everything else. As a first time home buyer I was nervous and concerned about the whole process and had heard the escrow horror stories from friends and family. Things couldn't have been more opposite for us. Simon, made us feel like we were on a fun easy ride adventure.

If you are thinking of buying a house, don't look further. Simon is the person you want, you won't regret it. Highly recommend him and his team!

PJ Foucault recommends Brett Aschoff


I recently traveled from out of State to preview homes in the Sun City West community for consideration. I contacted Brett who had been recommended to me to go over my criteria to get "pre qualified" . My whole experience from beginning to end could not of gone smoother under his guidance. Throughout every turn he responded immediately answering my questions making the total home buying process effortless for me. I was treated to regular phone calls continually updating me. Brett never missed a beat exhibiting every possible quality you could wish for, professionalism, timely , thorough, empathetic. From the start I felt that my business was not only respected, but truly appreciated. I couldn't be a more satisfied customer and would highly recommend Brett and his team.

Glenn A. Partyka/Barbara L. Partyka recommends John Moony


John was recommended to us by our financial advisor 18 months ago when we retired and began a search for a home in another state. John immediately assisted us in gaining loan pre-approval and stayed in touch even though the search for a new home took longer than expected. When the time occurred, he and his team provided a smooth process with the loan process. During this highly stressful period, John quickly responded to every phone call or E-mail and ensured all documentation was accurate and fully understood. His calm demeanor made it a pleasure to speak and interact with him concerning the loan process. We would highly recommend him whenever asked about our loan experience.

Leon Xu recommends Mike Fagan

Language Analyst

It was a wonderful refinancing experience with Mike and his team! With their assistance, not only was I able to lock in for a very low interest rate, it was also done in a timely manner.

During the whole process, I was always notified on any new updates. And more importantly, under the COVID-19 climate, I was able to complete most of the process through only online. The only time I needed to see anyone in person was during the final closing and signing. They also provided secured methods for the transfers of sensitive information digitally.

Mike and his team were very patient when answering to our questions. They are friendly, honest and reliable. I would recommend their service to anyone!

We have worked with Frank Monaco on multiple transactions; each time he has been amazing to work with. We trust Frank's opinion and honesty when we have asked about a loan or rather it would be a good fit for us. Frank is friendly and always helpful when we have questions or concerns. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Frank once again for our most recent transaction and will always recommend him to others who ask us for a lender.

Scott Baker recommends Rod Michotte

IT Comm Tech

I was initially using a different lender until my realtor recommended Rod and I'm glad she did. Buying a new house is already stressful but the loan wasn't. I always knew what needed to get done and there were no surprises along the way. He was easy to talk to and would answer my questions, even while on vacation. I don't plan on buying another house anytime soon but if I were, Rod would be the guy I use. Thanks Rod.

David Fisher recommends Tim Martin

Home owner

Tim Martin saved our deal.

We started our home purchase with a different bank. They started out reasonably prompt and polite, but when our loan hit a speed bump the loan officer was nowhere to be found. We needed a new lender. The other banks I spoke with told me that we would have to delay our closing by at least a month, which likely would have killed our deal in the midst of a very strong sellers’ market.

That’s when my realtor suggested that I call Tim Martin. The first thing Tim did was take the time to explain the entire financing process to me (something my first bank did not do). Then he walked me through all the possible ways to close our loan as quickly as possible. Next, he was able to secure a lower interest rate than any other bank was able to offer me.

His team kicked into action immediately and was with us every step of the way. The portal was efficient and made everything run smoothly. When I had questions, Tim and his team were always available. This was by far the smoothest part of our house hunt.

The other banks said we’d close at least a month late, but our deal closed within just about a week of the original closing date. All were quite pleased.

We cannot recommend Tim Martin highly enough. He will be the first call we make for any future real estate financing.

ENRIQUE LORET DE MOLA recommends James Clark

James Clark was responsive to to our search for a loan refinance. He provided concise information on requirements and estimates on using Guaranteed Rate Assurance. Evaluating various other lenders it was clear that James and his organization was the one to use not only for close and rates offering but the "no hard sell" approach. The processing of the loan request was easy to follow and the loan processing team provided guidance as needed. The loan was completed quickly and the disclosures and estimated were accurate. James and his team are easy to work with! Great follow up and straight shooters all!
