Stacey Friedman recommends Joe Green

Lyon Real Estate

Joe is my go-to lender. He has never once failed to deliver for my clients, even going the extra mile when a client already working with another lender was not responsive. Because of Joe's excellent service, with absolutely nothing to gain, my clients switched lenders and Joe saved their transaction.

No matter when or where he's always ready with a pre-approval and often is quick to get underwriting approval for more solid offer presentations. He always calls the listing agent when I present an offer on behalf of a buyer and he often attends my listing open houses answering questions and being of service.

Joe and I have had a successful history of creating well attended home buyer workshops. I can't recommend him highly enough. Service with a great attitude!

Real Estate Agent

Carmelita is the amazing. I sent her a client and they absolutely
loved her service. In fact, when everything was said and done, they told me not to send my clients to anyone else. Enough said! Carmelita will continue to get my business!

I can't say enough good things about Carmelita and her team! Communication was excellent, they kept us in the loop the entire time. We closed early, and each milestone was met with ease. I couldn't have asked for a smoother, or easier escrow. Thank you!

Donna Vinnard recommends Carmelita Carder

Norcalwest Realty Broker/Owner

Just closed escrow with Carmelita....and would definitely always highly recommend her not only because of her professionalism, but because she doesn't disappear after the loan application. What a fantastic job...had to change loan program mid escrow and did so without a hitch!!! Don't worry, she doesn't get her feathers ruffled easily...she can handle whatever possible roadblocks that pop up. Audrey was also on top of the file!

D'Wayne Baird recommends Carmelita Carder

Vice President

We wanted to refinance our home to get a lower interest rate. Carmelita's staff was very helpful. They were in contact often, with emails and phone calls in order to follow up and ensure our application was processed quickly. I must say they were very friendly and always returned calls and emails.

If future needs arise I will reach out to them again.

Leslie Sandberg recommends Carmelita Carder

I am delighted to provide this recommendation to anyone who is seeking a professional, thoughtful, responsive, and exceptionally talented and knowledgeable Mortgage Consultant. Carmelita Carder, and her staff, were prompt and responsive following the first introduction. There was no moment throughout the mortgage application and approval/review process that I had a second's hesitation about choosing Paramount Equity Mortgage BECAUSE of Carmelita Carder and her exceptional team, Ashley, etc.

While one always tries to select a mortgage company that will provide an optimal financing arrangement and package, one also must seek to ensure that you have faith, trust, and confidence in a process that can be challenging. In short, my choice was made BECAUSE of Carmelita. Her poise, sensitive, and an immediate feeling that I could trust her and her team, without question was present. Period.

Throughout the process we have grown in the professional and business relationship and I look forward to continuing my friendship with them for years to come.

It's not just numbers and business. They are true professionals and partners!

Ariel Winget recommends Carmelita Carder

Happy Homeowner

Carmelita and her team were amazing to work with. From pre-approval to closing we were in constant communication. Once we finally found our home I was happy but also dreading the closing process because I know from being in the business myself that the closing process can be the most stressful. Amazingly enough it was the smoothest part of buying my home. We closed ahead of scheduled without any issues at all. I highly recommend Carmelita and her team (Ashley squared) :) You ladies rock!

When we decided to refinance our home we were recommended to talk to Carmelita, and I am so greatful we did! This whole process has been stress free thanks to Carmelita and her team. They are all so helpful and friendly! We called Feb. 11 and by Mar. 09, the whole process was complete. I highly suggest calling Carmelita if you are considering purchasing or refinancing your home, I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Barbara kafati recommends Marques Wood

Office technician

Marques has been such a pleasure to work with. He helped me rebuild my credit and get it where it needs to be in order to buy a beautiful home. He helped get the job done in a fast time frame. He explained the whole mortgage process and explained it in a way to help us understand it clearly and had taken in all of concerns and made sure we understood the ins and outs of every detail. He has always been available to answer any questions or concerns and always made you feel that your concerns mattered. He is honest and trustworthy and will find you the best rate possible. I will recommend him to all of my family and friends and will work with him again in our next home buying experience.

Carmelita and her team did a great job of taking care of us through the whole process of purchasing our new home. Answering my million of questions, calmly explaining each step when I called panicking and helped me understand how the process was moving along and that I really had nothing to worry about. They all really had our back. Carmelita is amazing and she has trained the team around her to be just as great!!

Debbie Carver recommends Carmelita Carder

Listing Agent

The transaction went smoothly and in a timely manner. i was the listing
agent and did not represent the buyers. However, we closed early utilizing
what could have been a difficult loan. That alone is praise worthy.
Thank you
