Joe was very personable and friendly. I felt like I'd known him all my life. Joe was very attentive to me and my specific needs. He made me feel like the only client he had. He was very knowledgeable and always provided a heads up on things to come. He checked in with me on the day of settlement to ensure that I had everything I needed. He checked on the day after settlement to congatulate me (again) and to see if I needed anything.

Joe did a great job all around: working out a great rate, avoiding PMI, keeping real estate agents organized, and making sure the appraisers and lenders were completing their work to meet our closing date.

I was very pleased with Joe as a person and as a Mortgage Professional. My husband and I both work in Washington DC and our week night time is very limited. Joe drove all the way to our house so we could complete the paperwork. He put up with my ADHD cat while he went over each document in detail and what we should expect during the purchase process. There were no surprises, everything went very smooth. My husband and I were out of town when Joe needed us to sign some documents, he emailed the papers to us and we completed them with no issues or delay to our loan approval. I will be calling Joe again when I am ready to refinance. I strongly recommend him!

Very organized clients. Loved working with them and I enjoy my T-shirt! I love the cats too! Never had I signed docs with cats stealing my pens and binder clips. Always will be something I'll remember. Thank you again and great working with both of you!

A few years ago, I was talking to my cousins who had just refinanced their home through Joe. I was hesitant about doing a refinance on my home, but with Joe's expert guidance, all my doubts left quickly. Joe is extremely knowledgable. He is also down to earth, very patient explaining everything very thoroughly. I also recommended Joe to several of my co workers. Last year an opportunity arose for me to purchase property in another state. I called Joe of course, for his help and guidance. He was with me every step of the way making the purchase a success. Thank you Joe.

Joe went above and beyond to get the job done (for our first home loan) and get it done fast! He explained anything we needed him to in full detail and remained patient with any questions we had. I have already recommended him to a couple of our friends and family looking.

It was great working with you and Justin. I miss hearing Justin's abuse about documents even though he works in a bank too! A great couple to work with - Thank you again.

Loved working with Joe. This is the 3rd purchase we've made in 2 years living in Baltimore. We worked with 3 different lenders each time and Joe was by far and away the very best of all of them.

He kept us informed throughout the process and answered a lot of questions that normally we would ask our real estate agent. Since we weren't working with a real estate agent Joe played a very important role in helping us navigate the process.

We will continuing working with him and VanDyk Mortgage for future purchases. They have excellent customer service, and even faxed over paperwork to the internet company for me since I didn't have access to a fax machine.

I highly recommend Joseph Longobardi. I own a house in Maryland and was looking to save some money on my monthly mortgage payment. Joseph not only went out of his way to help me along every step of the process, he also was willing to work with me during his personal time (over the weekend) to get this refinance done quickly, which I really appreciated!

In the end, I ended up saving a good chunk of money every month thanks to a very nice interest rate, and I never felt ripped of or taken advantage of because he came to meet me and explained every detail of the costs associated with the refinance. In fact, I'm saving a lot of money over the life of the loan.

I referred him to my mom who also refinanced, and because rates were even lower she was able to lock into a 15-yr at a phenomenal rate.

Thanks for making the process smooth and easy!

Joe was a pleasure to work with. He was proactive when rates lowered and took the necessary steps to lock in that lower rate. Email was most effective way to communicate and paperwork was processed in a timely fashion. Joe was friendly, not a pushy hyperactive salesman, and he made the refinance process enjoyable.

Thank you for the kind words.This was actually the second refinance I did in the past 8 years for this client! Saving substantial money each time! I was a pleasure to work with you again - I find praise when clients return to me over the years.

I recently refinanced through Van Dykle Mortgage with Jay Longobardi. He was extremely helpful in every way. From being up front about costs, to finding the perfect loan product, to helping me lock in at the right time to get a great rate, Jay was number one.

I would recommend Jay to anyone looking for a new mortgage or to refinance an existing mortgage. He's great to work with and makes a tough process very smooth.

Thanks Jay!

He was very helpful with refinancing my loan. He was extremely knowledgeable and always followed through by getting back to me very quickly with answers to any questions that I had.

I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to get a first time loan or refinancing an existing loan.

It was the smoothest refinancing and most pleasant experience that I have ever had and I have refinanced many times with different loans.
