Closed refinance loan. Maple Valley, WA
I have used Marcus and VanDyk Mortgage a couple of different times to refinance our home loan. Marcus is by far the best mortgage person that I have worked with. He took care of us every step of the way and made the process much easier than I have experienced in the past. He is personable, stays on top of everything, and knows his stuff, which really took the stress out of the process. I have since referred him to family & friends and they have each had the same take-away. It's invaluable to have somebody that you can trust in the industry and I can't speak highly enough of Marcus and the job he does.

I was a nervous first time homebuyer and so happy I got connected with VanDyk Mortgage. I ran into a real estate agent during an open house and she referred me to Marcus from VanDyk. I had spoken with a few mortgage companies before contacting Marcus but I felt positive every time I spoke with him. All the pressure was lifted off my shoulders, I got a great rate, and Marcus guided me through the whole process. From the first phone call to the day of signing I always had help and guidance by my side. I would recommend VanDyk Mortgage Corp to any homebuyer looking for a new house. My family and I couldn't be happier.

Closed refinance loan. Eastlake, Seattle, WA
Marcus helped me finance two loans at amazing rates. I was a bit worried at first because we were located in two different parts of the country. I hadn't actually met Marcus in person when we first started discussions. But Marcus listened and understood what we needed. He knew what was available and was easy and friendly to talk to. He found great rates and gave knowledgeable advice about when to lock them in. I was looking to refinance to a lower, fixed interest rates under unusual financial conditions. Marcus got it done.

Marcus Marion made the process of refinancing our loan as painless as possible. He answered every question, always returned my calls and email, and was pleasant throughout the entire process.

I have recommended him to several friends and they were also pleased.

My previous mortgage company stated that there was no possible way for VanDyk to get me the rate I wanted, but they did.

I couldn't be happier with my experience working with Marcus.

Closed refinance loan.
I called VanDyk Mortgage after spending 6 months with another company who was giving me the runaround and not processing my paperwork. The other company I was trying to use kept dragging their feet with processing paperwork, wasn't keeping me informed on what was going on, and wouldn't return my calls. I had plenty of equity in my home and a FICO score of over 800 so it's not like I was a problem case.

After being fed up with the poor business practices of the other company, I called Marcus at VanDyk Mortgage. He immediately addressed my concerns, gave me a list of all the paperwork I would need to complete the re-fi, and assured me he would return my calls when/if I had questions. I couldn't have been happier with the service and attention to detail I got from him. He kept me in the loop on everything that was going on and not only got my re-fi CLOSED in a little over 30 days, he also was able to discount some of the fees! I have already recommended VanDyk Mortgage to a number of people and will continue to praise them for their efficiency and outstanding customer service. This is a top notch company!

It was a real pleasure working with Marcus. The response time in resolving questions or concerns were prompt and he always followed through with the process of sending and receiving paperwork. Marcus made us feel quite comfortable with the knowledge he possesses about VA loans. He was also most helpful regarding the loan process and moreover it was truly a wonderful experience. After the closing, Marcus called and offered congratulations, and thanked us. Thank you Marcus. Sincerely, Len and Jen Cox

Applied for a loan, but it didn't work out. Charter Oak, Covina, CA 91724
I worked with Josiah Whalen and I found him to be very professional, knowledgeable, helpful, available, responsive, caring and overall an excellent person to work with in my mortgage processing. I highly recommend Van Dyke and Mr. Whalen.

Closed refinance loan.
Josiah was GREAT to work with! He gave me exactly what i wanted and closed my loan in less than a month. I started shopping for a loan online after my other lender, Wells Fargo, took so long. 70 days into the process with Wells Fargo and still no answer to when we would close!! It seemed like Josiah's support staff (Heather and Sue) were always "ontop" of making sure the process went smoothly. I would recommend Josiah and VanDyk Mortgage to EVERYONE that is looking for a loan.

Closed purchase loan.
Josiah was awesome! My wife and I didn't have the cleanest of credit history, but we had done well the past few years to improve it. Josiah helped to further improve our credit status before finalizing the loan in order to get us favorable loan terms. He was friendly, organized and remained in constant communication with us. He is a good guy who works FOR his clients. I would highly recommend him.

Applied for a loan, but it didn't work out. Warrior, AL
I contacted VanDyk Mortgage and was given a very competative estimate. I did not follow through immediately and the rates changed. I agreed to a higher rate and then a few days later found a better one. I asked VanDyk if they could match it. They crunched the numbers and came up with a better offer but couldn't match the other offer I had gotten. VanDyk had been very helpful and responsive and I felt obligated to go with them but they gracefully gave me the option to pull out and go with the other offer if I wished. I appreciated this very much and did go with the other offer. And I can tell you that VanDyk in the end had given me the most competative offer as the other company fudged numbers on the Good Faith Estimate. (They chose an unrealistic estimated value for our house to give a loan to value below 60%.) If I had to do it over, I would go with VanDyk in a minute.

Thank you for the wonderful review Carolyn! I am sorry to hear the other offer wound up being "too good to be true". I always put my clients interests first because it is important to me that they feel like they are getting the best deal. It means a lot to me that you spent your time to say nice things about me and I wish you the best! -- Josiah
