Closed purchase loan.

George Raymondo is our HERO!!! We started our home buying journey in November 2014. We were preapproved by one company, put in our offer on our dream house, our offer was accepted and we thought everything would go smooth from there on out. We were WRONG! We got denied from the 1st lender and got on Zillow and were referred to another lender. They said "Dont worry, we will get this deal done". Everything seemed to go smooth until they stopped aswering my calls and returning messages and completely gave us the run around when we did get in contact with them. I was frantic and confused and we were running out of time. I desperately starting googling and I read a post on Zillow about someone going through a similar situation. I read a few comments and something told me to email this guy George Raymondo. So I sent a private message to him and everything turned around for the better from that point forward. George was WONDERFUL!! He told me what to ask the lender we were working with and how he thought they were going to deny us and how to withdrawl from them if they were about to deny our application. George was 100% correct. They were giving us the run around because their underwriter was going to deny us. So before they did that I withdrew from them like George said and started the process over with George. Our mortgage loan was HELL. George and his processor never gave up on us and fought so hard for us. Their underwriter didnt like that my husband was a stay at home dad for 8 months before he started his current job 6 months ago and George fought with the underwriter for us and then he went over his head to the National Underwriting Manager and then he fought for us all the way up to HUD and got the ok. It was a long process that felt like a million years had passed. There were ups and downs and once we thought we had the deal in the bag we would run into another snag and George would go over the underwriters head again to the National Underwriter Manager and get the loan back on track again. It was an emotional roller coaster, but because of George and Maria and how hard they fought for us, we CLOSED on our house on JANUARY 12TH 2015!!!! I am soooooo thankful that I found George! He was a HUGE help to us and we owe him everything!! We would not be living in our new house right now if it wasn't for him! If you are in a situation with your lender and you dont feel like things are going smooth CALL GEORGE RAYMONDO!!! If you were denied a home mortgage CALL GEORGE RAYMONDO!! If you are thinking about buying a house but dont know if you can get a loan CALL GEORGE RAYMONDO!!!!!!! Dont hesitate! Pick up the phone and CALL GEORGE RAYMONDO!!! George and Maria will get the job DONE and you will close on your dream house too! If George cant get you a mortgage, NO ONE CAN! George is easy to talk to, knows this business inside and out, and fights as hard as he can for his clients because no one else will. Our own Realtor said "In all my years in this business I have NEVER seen a lender fight so hard like that for ANYONE". George turned our nightmare into a dream come true!! THANK YOU GEORGE!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You were our knight in shining armor and I will be telling everyone I know to call you!  More Less

Closed purchase loan. Middleton, ID

We started working with George in February and he was very patient with us, answered all our questions and concerns. We looked at building a couple different times and was still there to help out. He went out of the way to help us find a lender to help our builder find financing. Once we found the right place he was able to educate us in USDA's Home Loan program. He was able to get us in a home within 3 years from short selling our previous home.  More Less

Closed purchase loan.

It is rare to find a professional of this caliber in any profession. We contacted George and his team after our financing with another lender fell through with 3 weeks left on our contract. George stepped in under tight time constraints and we closed on time. I'm not sure anyone else could of managed this situation better.  More Less
