Ed saved the day. I was the sellers agent for a home. We accepted an offer that seemed good. The day it was scheduled to close the loan agent they where using came clean and confessed the loan couldn't be done. This put all parties in a difficult situation. The buyer stood to lose $1000 of dollars for breach of contract. The sellers agent went into emergency mode and Ed's name was mentioned as "if it could be done, Ed could do it". A week later the home closed. As I said Ed saved the day.

Ed Fontes gave us amazing customer service. Ed and his team were available for us, answered our questions, and gave us great guidance. They were responsive to our questions. Their handling was prompt and efficient. I always think of referring friends and neighbors to someone we've come to trust, and I will undoubtedly refer people to Ed.

First, let me say Ed is AWESOME! He is extremely knowledgeable, always willing to help and go the extra mile for his clients. He walked us through every step, explaining the programs available and outlining costs so we were never in the dark about anything. If there's any time you can't reach him it's because he's helping so many others make their dream a reality. When others have said no, Ed and his team always have a yes. I would definitely recommend him and will work with him again on our next home!

Ed Fontes alongside with the rest of him team went above and beyond to ensure my home buying process went smoothly. Being a first time buyer he was able to guide me and answer all of my questions along the way. I’ve heard buying a home was stressful, but not when you have Ed on your team. Ed and my realtor did an AMAZING job, I will use him in the future as should anyone reading this.

Thank You !!!

We had a great experience with Ed Fontes. Anytime we had difficulties with the mounds of paper work he was just a phone call away. Always returned calls or text immediately. We had a hiccup with the background and he was able to resolve it quickly.
He’s a professional at his craft, I would recommend him to anyone!

Our refi started just before corona virus hit. It was crazy. All the money industry grinded to a halt. Not ED. He kept pushing and pushing and finally we closed we got our great low rate even after the lock expired! He and his team, Jorge especially, were fantastic!!! Thanks guys well done.

Very recently I did a Reverse Mortgage - or rather - Ed did it for me!
He was always available with advice - via e-mail, telephone or fax - to calm any anxieties I had.
Thank you, Ed.

Ed works so hard to get my loan to be approved on conventional loan!

Ed is awesome! He is extremely helpful and takes the time to answer all of your questions. He helped us buy our first home and refinance it a year later. Ed and his team made both process quick and easy. Will be recommending him to our family and friends!

After my first few months living in an apartment, I decided that apartment living was not for me and I would have to purchase a house sooner rather than later. I contacted a broker who, after checking my credit, informed me via text that my score was below 620 and I should let him know when my score got to 620 and above. I was devastated because I thought the odds were stacked against me. Then I was introduced to Ed Fontes...
I wondered why it was that he never said anything about my low score and proceeded to initiate my home loan. 18 days after my application, and with the help of a great realtor, I closed on my house!
Although I received keys to my new house, it's still hard to believe that it happened so quickly! I highly recommend Ed and his team, and give them 10 stars!!! Thank you Ed and Victoria!!🤗

There are no words to express how I feel about owning my new home. Ed Fontes’ team was excellent through the whole process. I was given the opportunity to own my home again and this would not have been possible, if it was not for Ed’s team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Mil gracias!!!

Let me start off by saying that Ed is amazing. Our situation was challenging to say the least (we're talking a 7 month escrow) and he made the process easy. He has a way of keeping you calm and always keeps a positive outlook in every situation. He knows his stuff and is consistently on top of everything. I will never use anyone else and I will be recommending him to every one I know.
Also a shout out to Jorge for always keeping on top of the paperwork and keeping me organized!
You guys are truly the best at what you do !
