" and his team did a PHENOMENAL job of keeping us on track through a difficult process (selling our previous home hit some major delays). They" walked us through each step of the process and continued checking in after we hit delays in selling our other home. They even paid a lot of the costs for us to re-lock our loan because of the delays. We felt cared for through the entire process. HIGHLY recommended.

"Terrible. It was embarrassing for us. We have always had excellent credit and this hit us hard. Never imagined they would turn us down for these reasons. Never had" any other issues with other banks or creditors. The person who we spoke with was very ignorant and unprofessional.

Mortgage Loans

Taking on a mortgage loan is a massive responsibility. Not only is it a huge expense, a mortgage loan is also a complicated set of concepts, options and obligations. Read on to learn about the fundamentals behind a mortgage loan.

Selling your house? You might be tempted to forgo hiring a Realtor and sell the house yourself — after all, how hard can it be?

Finding lenders, real estate agents, home inspectors and other professionals you can trust is an important first step in buying a house.

Buying a house is an emotional journey — from finding the perfect property to securing the ideal price. The last thing anyone wants to endure is a real estate closing that resembles a roller coaster ride.

This new disclosure rule simplifies home closing with two new forms. Here's what info your mortgage lender must give you and when.

Yes! Movie tickets, 2 hours at the spa, 10 rides at your local "iFly", etc. Bottom line: You know your clients. Find out what they do to reward/pamper themselves and give them that!

Hope this helps!

As with anything like this, some are scams, some legit but poorly organized or run, some legit. There are a few new companies set up by hedge funds just getting into rentals and into buying foreclosed properties in good shape, which they then rent or lease and will, in some cases, allow rent to partly apply to purchase.

 

Before you even think about this type of arrangement, you should have it THOROUGHLY reviewed by a lawyer, because once you get into it you will be stuck, and most likely there will be a LOT of terms restricting your investment. Considering the average person moves every 5 years or so for employment or family or medical reasons, and generally these sort of arrangements have to be carried through to completion to get ANY of your investment back out of the deal, it is generally a losing proposition for almost everyone - a fact the companies count on.

I'm an old hand at buying and selling and have been a landlord and renovator for years. I'm not easily impressed. I can count on one hand the number of providers of any house-related service I have continued to use over the last 20 years.
(and , office manager) have earned a spot on ...More that roster. I was extremely impressed, and everything came together beautifully and in record time. I came to late in the game, taking an assignment of someone else's purchase, yet still having a firm closing date only 3 weeks out, after which I would money. Some companies could not possibly perform; Mr. knows how to take care of business and got it done. I had the appraisal back in just a couple of days. He was extremely responsive; I got documents to him as quickly as possible, and it just worked. We were the first loan to close at our particular Title Company under the new TRID rules, so there was some concern, but it all closed on time, and we are very happy with our rate, and our new home.
Meanwhile, I'm selling another home and the process is not going as smoothly or as quickly. Wish I had recommended to my Buyers!
He is now "my" mortgage broker! Thanks, and ! Fantastic job.

The experience I had securing a mortgage with and his staff was unlike any others I've experienced before (3 prior banks). I felt like I had a personal assistant on call 24 hours a day, and he was always one step ahead of me. That is saying a lot, because I usually have to stay on top of people. I have a doctorate degree ...More in Pharmacy and have an "A-type" personality, and so it is usually difficult for businesses to meet my expectations. I was completely blown away with 's professionalism, honesty, attention to detail, timeliness, and expertise. He secured a lower interest rate than even originally quoted, where others probably would not have even mentioned that interest rates had decreased... he closed our loan a few days before the scheduled date, he answered his phone at all hours and all days... he is truly excellent at his job and I am thankful for the experience.

did a great job helping me to refinance my mortgage. He was professional, responsive, and took the time to answer any questions I had. He is knowledgeable about the types of mortgages available and explained each option in detail. He offered recommendations based on my financial situation and goals. He has a network of mortgage ...More lenders he works with and I was able to get more options through him than I was able to get through my bank. He worked with me to determine whether I wanted to pay more down up front or roll the closing costs into the loan. He worked seamlessly with the lender and title company to complete the mortgage application and closing. I would definitely go back to at for future mortgage needs and highly recommend him to others.

Everything went great!

I initially used Ideal's online application to apply for a loan. I did not hear anything back about it for a few weeks, I assumed it was because I was not a good candidate for a loan. However did end up emailing me back asking if I wanted to come to his office to apply in person. About a week and a half after applying I ...More was told he found a lender that would probably finance me. I submitted all the documents needed and was preapproved about a week after that. I found a house and made an offer around Sept. 9th and everything was going pretty smoothly. was very good about responding to my emails, sometimes I felt a little in the dark about things but that could be because I'm not really a question asking kind of person. The last day I had to close was Oct. 28th and I ended up having to file an extension and I closed Nov. 6th. I am not exactly sure why it took almost 2 months to close, but did get the job done and got me a really good rate in the process. Overall I am very satisfied with his service, I know my situation was not the easiest and was able to get me the mortgage anyway.

was ready to roll as soon as we gave him everything he
