Closed purchase loan. Wimberly Estates, Gainesville, FL 32605
When the loan closed late and the seller demanded I pay damages, Mike covered the damages even though it exceeded my closing costs.

Closed refinance loan. Virginia Colony, Moorpark, CA 93021
Michael and his team were outstanding through the entire refinance process. They knew my rate target, called & emailed when they had it, and locked it in for me. They promptly responded to any of my questions and were extremely efficient in moving my refinance along to closing. The geographic distance was never an issue (I live in southern CA) and I would highly recommend this team to anyone.

Gave me a quote on Zillow, but it did not work out. Glade Dr - Reston Pky, Vienna, VA 22181
I highly reccomend Mike and would ignore the negative comments, based on experience (Sept 2009) and long experience in geting loans (almost 18 years homeowner and have been through this about 6-8 times witnh first time and refi). Responsiveness: Mike contacted me right away and maintained quality feeback even after it was apparent that my current loan was better than what was avalible in the market. Exceptional Integrity: Based on a reasonable review, Mike was quick to suggest that it would not be adviseable to refi given my current rate and the payback time and that I should not consider ARM, rate buydowns or other paths given that I do not intend to move. His fee schedule is very, vey low and clear, none of the typical courier and other addons. He provide a reasonable estimate of costs in my area. I was looking for a loan. Personality: Personable, patient and candid--not a loan pusher. A major part of my job is to assess people: he passes the test easily.

Michael did a great job. Even though there were a few challenges along the process he said he would deliver me the loan i was looking for and he did.

Michael was knowledgeable, informative, flexible and personable. He was constantly in touch, through evenings and weekends as well, even though the process ran longish (through no fault of his). He bent over backwards to make sure everything went well. For example, we had to close our existing equity line in order to process with the new lender. Michael went out and found an even better equity line for us, even though this research had nothing whatsoever to do with his business and he got no benefit out of it other than making a client happy. Not only *would* I recommend him to a good friend, I have already done so.

Gave me a quote on Zillow, but it did not work out. Willow Springs, IL 60527
I am refinancing an ARM to take advantage of the current fixed rates. Michael has been patient and made good recommendations to help me secure the best deal. He has consistently demonstrated valuable knowledge about the current market dynamics and guided me to the right solution. I have excellent credit and significant equity in my house, yet my current lender (large mortgage company) is seemingly uninterested in retaining my business. I not only feel like I am getting the best deal, I feel good about the process. I will report back after closing, but expect the process to go smoothly based upon the actions to date.

Closed refinance loan. North Springfield, Springfield, VA 22151
Although I haven't closed the loan with Michael yet (it is still being processed), I am very pleased with his professionalism. Michael is very responsive and helpful. He explains the process in details and helps me to pick the most suitable options for my refinancing needs. I like his straightforward way of conducting the business. Instead of beating about the bush and giving me sugarcoat yet false information, he just clearly explains the pros and cons; and that helps me a lot in making my own decision. I sure will recommend him to any of my friends and relatives.

Michael is personable, sincere and communicative. Despite the fact he is in Wisconsin and I am in California (which I thought might be a drawback), everything went very smoothly. Michael made us a very good offer, was upfront about the identity of the bank providing the financing, and nothing changed in the 6 weeks it took to close. He gave us lots of advice, shared his extensive knowledge and expertise, and reassured us regularly during the process. Absolutely, I would recommend Michael to a friend, and I would certainly work with him again. Thank you, Michael!!!
