Michael guided me through the mortgage process seamlessly, while still providing the best rates/ fees available. He came highly recommended by my real estate agent and didn't disappoint. If you're serious about buying a home and need a dependable loan officer for your mortgage, Michael and Financial Equities are as good as they come.
Michael Vassallo is very knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to work with! He goes out of his way to help you through every step of the process.

Hey Charlie thank you so much for the review! It was a pleasure working with you and your wife and structuring the sale of your coop and the purchase of the new house so that it was seamless! Keep in touch and speak soon! lets go rangers!!!
I am scheduled to close tomorrow on my apartment purchase. I am delighted to provide a review on Michael's behalf and cannot say enough good things about Michael and his entire team at Financial Equities.
Michael was recommended to me by a friend in the Real Estate business. Michael was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end during the whole loan process. Right from the get go, Michael was responsive, professional, and courteous. He is extremely knowledgeable and explained the whole process clearly and thoroughly. Anytime I needed to contact Michael, he always got back to me right away - even after hours and on weekends. Communication is key during the whole process, and Michael and his team excelled in this regard.
I would have no reservations in recommending him. A true pleasure to deal with.

Thank you Bridget! it was a pleasure working with you and I am thrilled you had a nice smooth experience, everyone on my team said you were a pleasure to work with as well! Congratulations to you and Brendan on your new home!
Mike was a recommendation by our realtor, my husband and I were first time buyers and decided to give Mike a chance considering we did not know a lot about the process of buying a house.
Upon contacting Mike we set up a meeting where Mike pulled together our financial records, he looked over the information letting us know exactly the position we were in financially and how the approval process would work. He instantly made us feel comfortable, he was professional, knowledgable and very easy to work with. Mike ensured he explained all of our options from top to bottom, he went over all the numbers with best case scenarios, worst case as well. He did all this without us nagging him, running after him, calling and getting the run around, which is what you would get if you used a bank. He answered all of our questions, he was always available, he followed up and was able to contact us via text, email and calls. He did not give us to his assistant to deal with, he dealt with us personally, which was great we did not need to explain our situation over and over again. He set expectations for us, but most importantly he gave us advise and pointers on ways to make the approval process easy and how to fix things when it came to our credit. He did a lot of the leg work for us, which made the process so stress free for us.
Throughout the process my husband and I felt comfortable with everything Mike told us to do, he was excellent and we are grateful for the recommendation as it made our lives easier and this process seamless. You hear horror stories of people running around, taking off work to take care of documentation banks require in order to get a mortgage thanks to Mike we didn't worry about any of that. We were able to go about our daily lives worry free. I would use him again and absolutely recommend him to anyone.
