* Please see above as well.
I understand that not closing on time can be frustrating and a common pain, but the unprofessionalism towards other agents that we have had for a long time was unacceptable to me as well as needing to provide duplicate information.
I only gave the price a C because we could have gotten a better interest rate with our advisor and didn't know that before we started the process.

I can say that I am grateful for Veteran United for being able to get us financed on a new home after Bankruptsy 2 years earlier. Quicken Loans would not even talk to us until we had 3 years behind us.
I can say that it was a pleasure working with Nick B..............That is where the pleasure stopped.
The loan processor sent us an email stating our file was going to under-writing & that process would take three days. What we were not told is that when she goes on vacation, our file stalls in the system until she returns, no one to follow through if this one person is gone. Our file was held up in under-writing for 18 days, we had 2 days before closing when the Supervisor of under-writing took over the file & had it completed within an hour. The person they had assigned to our file was writing questions she wanted answered that had been answered 4 times before, in writing. Our loan processor went on vacation twice during underwriting, so no one else I guess could follow through with our file.
Only spoke to the loan officer once at the end just before closing, very rude,act's like he is doing you a favor, even if you are paying him thousands of dollars for the service..........

came out and looked over the problem I had with trash and water coming from my neighbor's property unto mine. To block the water it was recommended the installation of a composite material at the base of the exisiting 100 foot fence. At the rear fence to stop the landscapers blowing of leaves and trash under the fence it was suggested that a trimmer board of the same material as the fence be installed, a distance of about 33 feet. On the date of installation the two employees arrived early and started pulling back the gravel along the fence. They then left to pick up the material needed for the job from a local supplier. Upon their return they started the installation of the composite material along the fence trimming it to fit around the concrete supporting the fence. They then did the same along the back fence. After completing the job they cleaned everything up. A friend of mine had used

to do work on her home and I was impressed by carpenters ability and dedication to their job. For that reason they were the company that I wanted for my job.

Based on the rave reviews on Angie's List, I requested information on the Guaranteed Rate website. I received an email from
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
, asking me to submit an application. I filled one out immediately. And what happened? Absolutely NOTHING! No response - no email - no phone call. Now, four months later, when I log into my account on the site, I STILL get the message, "Thanks for submitting your application! We will review your information and your home loan expert,
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
, will be contacting you shortly to review your loan."
Even if a loan wasn't possible, I would have appreciated the courtesy of a follow-up.

A few years ago, a guy named
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
referred me to a friend of his named
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
at Advantage Funding in Brentwood, TN for a mortgage re-finance. Me and my wife went there to talk to him about the rates & etc. and decided to let him handle the refinancing of our mortgage, since he sounded like he was very knowledgeable about mortgage loans.
At the second meeting we had with him at Advantage Funding, the subject of a re-construction loan came up, since we wanted to do some remodeling and additions to our home.
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
said he could get us a re-construction loan for up to $150,000 for about $500-600 a month in addition to our existing mortgage. So what we were to do to prepare for this was take all of our non-mortgage related loans and roll them into a re-finance then, and that would make our credit score go high into the 800 range which would help us get the best rate for the re-construction loan about 6 months later after the credit bureau updates with this new information. So we did the refinance with him then, but he was putting us in a variable rate loan that was fixed for 3 years. I asked why, because I heard those kind of loans were bad. He said it didn’t matter since we were going to re-finance in 6 months anyway.
So during those 6 months, I started figuring out what we wanted to do as far as re-modeling and the additions to our house and hired an architect to draw up the plans for what we wanted, and that cost a little over $600 for the drawings.
I had a question for
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and called his cell phone number he’d given us and left a message asking him to call us back. This was a couple months or so after we had refinanced our home. I waited several days with no return phone call from him and tried calling again, and had to leave a message again. Since there wasn’t any big rush, I waited several weeks and still never heard from him. I got my wife to call him and leave a message. Still, no return call.
So I looked up the number to Advantage Funding’s office in Brentwood and called and asked to speak to
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
. The lady who answered said there wasn’t anyone there by that name. So I told her that we had met with
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
there a few months earlier and refinanced our house thru him there. She then told me that he hadn’t worked there in six months, and then asked what my name was. I told her and she tried to look up me and my wife’s name on their computer and couldn’t find any info on us at all. So I thought about it for awhile and tried to figure out what was going on. So I called Advantage Funding’s number again, and like everywhere else, I had to listen to a recording. So I listened to their company directory list and recognized
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
’s wife’s name,
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
.
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
had told me that his wife owned Advantage Funding in our conservations, so I dialed her extension and she answered and I asked her if she could get in touch with
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
. She said sure, that she would talk to him at lunch time and have him call me. I asked her why the other lady there said he no longer worked there and she told me
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
had went to work in another companies office up in Virginia at United Capital Mortgage. But still, I got no return phone call. Well after lunch, I looked on our refinance paperwork and saw that we had actually refinanced thru United Capital Mortgage in Virginia, not Advantage Funding, even though
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
told us he worked at Advantage Funding and we met in those offices.
So I looked up Untied Capital Mortgage phone number in Virginia online and called there. A man answered the phone and I asked him if
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
was there. He said he didn’t know who that was and no by that name worked there. I told him a little about what was going on and he asked some of the other people in the office there with him if they knew who
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
was. They did, but they knew him by the nick name, “puddin”. So we talked more in depth and I find out that he was telling everyone up there too that he and his wife owned Advantage Funding down here in Brentwood, TN. So the guy finally told me that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
was in the Baltimore Maryland office but I should talk to the district manager, who was in the Virginia office with him, and tell him what was going on. He said he would have this district manager call me right back.
So in about an hour, I got a call from the owner of United Capital Mortgage in Knoxville, TN,
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
. He asks me to fill him in on what’s going on, and as I was telling him,
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
is beeping in on our call. So after being so helpful and concerned, I hung up with
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and called
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
back. He’s raising h*** with me, wanting to know why I’m calling everyone making trouble for him. So I tell him that I’d been calling him for months leaving messages and not getting called back, and he’s going off on me for making trouble for him. So he finally calms down, fills me up with more crap, reassuring me that he can do the re-construction loan as promised and so on. So I work on the home addition plans and re-modeling details with a builder for a couple more months.
So now I’m skeptical about this guy, and I call Advantage Funding back and talk to the manager there. She tells me that I’m not the only one who has called there asking about
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and ending up furious because of misleading info that he has given them. She told me that I should call the lady who owns Advantage Funding,
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
, and talk to her, since she was very interested in what was going on with
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
.
I called her and she tells me that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
didn’t work there when we refinanced there a few months earlier and that his wife
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
who worked there, her best friend, was letting
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
use an office there to meet people in and do business, but she wasn’t supposed to be doing that. She also told me that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and his wife were stealing customers from Advantage Funding by his wife sending customers who came to Advantage Funding out the door to
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
, who would either meet them there or somewhere else and finance them thru United Capital Mortgage. She also said that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
were under investigation by the commission that regulates mortgage brokers for this same thing.
She wanted me to file a commission complaint on
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
along with several other customers who had the same experience as I did.
So after all this, I finally find out from talking to the owner of United Capital Mortgage again that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
couldn’t do the loan he promised at the amount and percent rate he promised. It was almost double the amount per month. He also said that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
couldn’t have done it for that amount that year or the year before for the amount we were told.
So we end up in a variable rate loan that has a fixed rate for 3 years. Our house is tore up from me getting everything ready for the re-construction that was supposed to happen. We didn’t have the money to fix all this back up to get a re-finance and the three year
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
comes up. Our mortgage loan balloons and our mortgage goes to $2000 a month and up and up. It’s $3300 a month now.
Not long after we found out we were screwed, I talk to the guy who referred me to
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
,
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
, and told him what had been going on. At first he asks me why I’m calling him, like he shouldn’t have anything to do with the situation at all, and then his reaction was “Oh boy, let me talk to
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and I’ll call you back. I haven’t heard anything from him since.
The thing that bothers me is that United Capitol and several other businesses that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
has worked at have found out about all of this from me, and not one of them cared one bit. Over a dozen people that I know of and probably more have been ruined by this crook and he still continues to work as a mortgage broker. All that matters to mortgage companies is make that sale no matter what.
From the realtor that shows you your soon to be new home, who refers you to their good friend, the mortgage broker, and their other good friend, the home inspector, all the way to the banks is why the U.S. economy in the housing industry is in the state it is in now and has been in. They all knew what was going on and still are able to operate like nothing happened.
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and his actions is a prime example of why and what we went thru in the mortgage industry.
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
has him as a branch manager in Nashville, TN. I bet if they were to look into
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
’s past records, they wouldn’t find a thing wrong or care if they did.
I recommend to anyone to not do business with
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
being that they have
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
working there, and as a branch manager no less. We have lost tens of thousands of dollars because of what this guy did and I sure wouldn’t do business with him ever and recommend the same to anyone.

Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
was absolutely amazing. What I was expecting to be a long, tedious process was handled with just a handful of phone calls and emails. She was pleasant, personable, and professional.
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
walked us through the process step by step and made everything easy to understand, as well as providing us with her insights in making some decisions. Even with the holiday weekend thrown in, the whole refi process was completed in two weeks. We definitely recommend
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and Cobblestone!

This is the second time I've turned to
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
for help in getting a home loan. The reason I'm a repeat customer is that
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
is great. He always gets me the absolute best rate and is an honest, tell-it-like-it-is person - so very appreciated during the confusing and scary process of getting a mortgage....More /> I tend to run a little on the neurotic side, and
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
handled my constant badgering and near freak-outs with great finesse, providing just the right amount of hand-holding and straight-up advice. This time around, I bought my home through a private sale, meaning neither party used a realtor. So I needed even more attention and guidance.
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
not only did a great job with the mortgage, he also gave me invaluable advice on issues related to the sale but outside his scope, such as home inspection.
A big THANKS to
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
. I couldn't have done it without you and
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
!

Ed Cooke was a pleasure to work with. When we decided to change proprieties he was very easy going and not frustrated at all. He worked very promptly to get us to close on time. He succeeded! We closed on our new house in 15 days! I would definitely recommend Ed and
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
(the mortgage processor). Thanks guys!

During a large part of the process we were traveling out of state.
Long Beach Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
successfully negotiated through the entire process, made sure all the T's were crossed, and corrected the mistakes made by our truly awful real estate agent. He approached each situation professionally, thoroughly informed us, and demonstrated some first rate humor along the way. I recommend him highly. You won't be disappointed.
