Closed purchase loan.
Kristine was a deal saver for me. I'm a first time home buyer, single dad who's had to pay close attention to all of my expenses...which means i read the fine print; when i saw all of the fees, unanswered questions and emails from my old broker i immediately scrambled and went online (mid-contract) to provide a minimal cost comparison for myself. Kristine was the first person to answer my inquiry and all of my ensuing questions thereafter (not in an overbearing, aggressive manner). She was patient (i asked about everything - she often answered my questions well into the night), knowledgeable (broke down every cost and real estate provision that would be confusing for most first time home buyers), insightful (helped me to combat some of the questionable behavior exhibited by my own real estate agent) and seems to genuinely care about her clients (there's a new message from her in my email right now asking how everything went even though i closed several days ago). I highly recommend her for first time home buyers as well as anyone else seeking an honest, broker-advocate who will represent you with the utmost of her ability. It was a pleasure working with such a remarkable, caring and down to earth professional - I've recommended her to my friends and family already.

I HAD SPOKEN TO SEVERAL BROKERS AND THEY COULD NOT GET ME APPROVED. WITH HER KNOWLEDGE, PERSISTENCE AND TENACITY SHE NOT ONLY GOT ME APPROVED BUT GOT ME A AWESOME RATE. ONCE WE FOUND THE HOME WE WANTED, WE CLOSED IN 20 DAYS. I FELT THAT I WASN'T JUST ANOTHER COMMISSION AND THAT HER HEART WAS TRULY IN IT FOR MY FAMILY. SHE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST!!!!!

Was pre-approved. Northeast, Anchorage, AK
We have been working with Kristine for a couple weeks now, and as far as we are concerned, we couldn't have found a more dedicated, honest, knowledgeable and committed lender. We have spoken to other mortgage lenders prior to meeting her, and Kristine is the only person that truly understands us and our needs.

Her responsiveness has been great, and she is very patient answering all of our many questions and concerns. She always returns phone calls and emails promptly. So far, she has issued a pre-approval and continues to work closely with our real estate agent while we go through the purchase process. She has been with us every step of the way so far which has been reassuring.

We are first time homebuyers, and we would highly recommend that you contact her...she will be the first and last lender that you will ever need to use.

My experience with Kristine Messa was awesome! Kristina helped me achieve my goal in obtaining a home loan during a very, very difficult time in my life. I had lost my mother to Alzheimer's and 51/2 months later my father dies of heart failure. Kristina not only was successful in obtaining a loan for my purposes but also was very supportive emotionally. This is a characteristic that is not always seen during business transactions. She is very knowledgeable in her field and follows through with all that is needed to secure a loan. I would recommend Kristine Messa with "peace of mind" to anyone.

Kristine was really between a rock and a hard place with me....for a myriad of reasons. She was relentless in the pursuit to get me a loan that would fulfill my requirements in order to purchase the home I was trying to buy. She is knowledgeable and efficient. The delays I experienced in finally getting into my house were NEVER because Kristine was not prepared to move forward. She kept me informed about what paperwork requirements needed to be met so I could keep the purchase moving. I have nothing but praise for this business woman.

I never owned a house before or knew anything about a mortgage. I can remember Kristine Messa spending hours with me so I could understand the whole re-fi and new loan process. I had a new baby and we were looking to re-fi our house, rent it out so we could buy another one. If it wasn't for Kristine, I never would have been able to have a new home and an investment property!

Thank You Kristine!

My experience with Kristine Messa has always been great. She has done several loans for me, and she definitely knows her business well. She has been very informative all through the process while getting me the best rates possible. She does her business in a very timely matter and knows all the inuendos of the mortgage business. I would highly recommend her to my friends, and I have done just that in the past.

I am new to the Bay Area and kristine was recommended. I found her to be quite knowlegeable and very responsive in dealing with my mortgage. She made the process much less stressful due to these attributes. I highly recommend her.
