I had a very unique situation with the type of loan I needed and after meeting with almost 4 other lenders James Burke was the one that was able to close the deal for me. He is very responsive when it comes to answering calls or calling people back and responding to e-mails. On my next home purchase I will not use anyone but James. Great experience.
James helped us purchase our dream home. I am certain that without James guidance and expertise this transaction would not have happened. With a growing family and stay at home mom at this period in our lives finances were stretched. James provided an excellent product and walked us through every step of the way. There were many obstacles along the way that James dealt with like a true professional and he was at the end of the phone or email every time I needed him.
James vast experience his responsiveness and personal touch make him second to none in his field.
James helped us refinance our existing mortgage and consolidate a line of credit to a single fixed rate mortgage. Good service, competitive rate and made it very easy to complete the transaction. Very good communicator and always followed up on any questions or concerns we had.
I had an opportunity to work with James Burke in the spring of 2014 and could not be more pleased with my experience. I found James to be knowledgeable, responsive, and incredibly professional. He and his entire team did a wonderful job of explaining the mortgage process and providing file and underwriting updates on a regular basis. Rates/product offerings were incredibly competitive but far better service than offered with the traditional mortgage broker model. I also work in the financial services industry and have referred him to several of my own clients. I wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone inquiring about a mortgage or refinance.
James was my main contact regarding financing pre-approval and then worked with me through the close process. He was knowledgeable about rates and different financing structures (30-year mortgage versus ARM). When it came to crunch time on locking in the rates, James proactively reached out to me about 30 days before close once the rates dipped. Because of James' help, we were able to lock in a 30-year mortgage at a rate that was nearly 100 basis points lower than what we were anticipating. I highly recommend using James for any of your home financing needs.
James was the loan officer for my recent condo purchase. From the very beginning of the process all the way through closing, James was incredibly proactive with letting this home-buying rooking know exactly what was needed, when it was needed, and the best way to provide all necessary information. James immediately responded to all of my inquiries with guidance that evidenced his many years of experience.
Everyone involved in the process, including the attorneys on both sides of the transaction, real estate agents, etc., were amazed at how quickly James was able to process my loan and fund the transaction (less than 3 weeks!) even commenting that James' work was amongst the best (and most efficient) they have seen.
Perhaps most of all, James is obviously passionate and enthusiastic with what he does, and this is a breath of fresh air in what seems to be a hectic and potentially stressful process.
I would HIGHLY recommend James to anyone and will use him again when the opportunity arises.
James was extremely helpful in guiding us through the purchase of our second home. It had been almost eight years since we had last purchased a home and many of the details of the loan process were new to me again. James was always able to answer questions we had about mortgage rates, the application process and the pros/cons of going with one type of a loan over another. No matter how small or basic of a question, James made sure it was a priority and genuinely made us feel that he was invested in our concerns. He always responded to me within a day, usually within a few hours of emailing or calling. Finally, James was good at allaying our concerns and always had a positive attitude even when we encountered hurdles or obstacles in the process. This is maybe the most important trait that James brings to the table. I would definitely recommend James Burke to anyone starting the home buying and loan application process.
James helped our family to realize a dream: a place for all of us to use when we need to get away. Hard work, blood, sweat, tears, over many years came to harvest. James understood the importance of what we were doing and despite those road blocks that seem to come from nowhere, he guided us through. Call this man, he is a professional with knowledge, candid advice, and is a non-stop advocate for his clients!!!!
