"+Extremely accessible for any and all questions. No question too small or insignificant.
was very knowledgeable. Smooth process and fully" explained along the way. Have worked with several other institutions in the past and I can say with certainty that I've never experienced this high a level of customer service!

"My mother in law was purchasing a second home and I assisted her along the way in obtaining paperwork, etc. We were referred to Christian at
" to obtain her mortgage. Christian was amazing from the first step of the process. From the moment we spoke, his professionalism and expertise were evident. He walked us through the process, informed us of the recent changes to the industry which lead to the need for more paperwork and also was clear with realistic timeframes. He was beyond thorough and also very patient as this was not a typical purchase. There were many bumps along the way including with the appraisal. Christian worked diligently with the underwriters to fight for the purchase but more importantly, he was honest and communicative every step of the way. He was responsive with emails and phone calls and when he was not available, he made sure to connect us with his Processor,
, who was equally as responsive. They were always there to answer any of our questions, and there were many...The whole process took over two months from start to finish and Christian and
were by our side until the closing was finalized. Christian and team made the purchasing experience that could be very stressful at times much more bearable and we were lucky to have such a professional and knowledgeable team working for us. I would highly recommend
and will be sure to use them for my own mortgage needs in the future.

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 how to navigate the turbulent waters of a mortgage loan by learning the fundamentals behind it.

Real Estate Agents, Mortgage Companies

Buying a home on a short sale can save a buyer money, but there are some factors to consider.

Aside from knowing the maximum purchase price you qualify for, there also are several other benefits to preapproval, says Goldhirsh. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Paul N. of Houston)

Getting preapproved for a loan before you go house hunting can make the process much easier, and prevent any last-minute mortgage surprises before you buy.

Always play it safe and disclose everything directly to your loan officer, says Goldhirsh. (Photo by Ray Alderete)

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.

Phenomenal! Everything

Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
is awesome! She and I had probably 10 total phone conversations about my mortgage and the refinancing process. I also had a unique situation with my credit report that she instructed me on how to resolve. She was such a blessing. Very professional and most importantly, she is extremely knowledgeable of the mortgage industry. She's patient and explains things very clearly and respectfully. I'm glad I found Cobblestone.

It was a very stressful time. We previously had been 'preapproved' by another lender for more than what we needed to purchase a home. After finding a few homes we were interested in, the original lender came back and told us that we were no longer preapproved for that amount but for a much lower amount. It was a pretty much take it or leave it scenario and they didn't offer much help or apology. Needless to say I wasn't very happy, or trusting in the process from then on. I continued to

for new lenders anyway and after a few more failed attempts, a friend recommended I contact
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
. I honestly don't know where he gets this patience because by then I wasn't exactly an 'easy' customer, having already been burned a few times prior. While he couldn't approve me for what I wanted initially, he was the only person that told me exactly why and things I could do to straighten out what had been holding me back before. His straight talk style, easy availability and guidance were instrumental in us accomplishing our goal. In the end, we were able to iron out what we needed to on our end, get the amount we wanted, buy the house we wanted, and all in the time we wanted. Thanks

They're a good one. We used Quicken when we owned the house in Virginia too so we started probably five or 10 years ago. we've always been satisfied with them. Their charges are very competitive and very good. We like them a lot.

These guys are as good as the reviews. I had a HELOC that the interest only period was about to expire and my payment that was going to more than triple. I was able to consolidate it with my first and refinance to a payment that was less than before. I was a good candidate with good income and credit. What I didn't have was a lot of time.

,
Crystal Lake Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and everyone else I worked with were totally professional and efficient. Everything was on time and every commitment was honored. When I noticed that the rate dropped on their website, emailed and was able to lock in the lower rate. The appraisers and title people they used were also excellent. Most of our communications were done by email and that was fast and convenient for me. Even though I didn't shop around and used the Angie's List recommendations, I think all rates and fees were totally reasonable. Unless there is a reason why you are not a good candidate, this company is as close as a sure thing as there is.
