"Working with
went very well. This was my first time buying a home, and
was very patient in answering all of my questions."
was easy to get in touch with, and went out of his way many times to touch base with me to make sure the process was going well. Also,
worked tremendously fast in putting together the mortgage. I did a bit of shopping to see if I could find better mortgage offers, but
found the best interest rates and had the lowest fees, and ultimately cost me the least amount up front.
made the entire process seamless and as stress free as possible.

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.

Mortgage Lending reviews in Elmhurst

The beginning of the process was excellent. I talked to three people that where polite, courteous, and professional. I certainly understand that it is hard to get any kind of loan when your taxes show so many deductions it looks like you make nothing. I do believe that when it comes to any loan the loan people should do all they can before they run out of options which these particular loan officer did not do. He talked so fast I could barely understand him. He was disrespectful to me and to the fact that my husband served this country in the
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
for twenty years. He never tried to find other options for us. He used one other option and never went to work so find any other. I just cannot believe still that we where treated like second class citizens. When it comes to loans even if you are not in the military a professional organization should do all they can until nothing is left to help the customer. This person never even tried. I would have been

if this person actually looked at several options instead of just one. He is a disgrace to the military man/ woman and those others that serve this country. I also think to most customers in general. It does not matter what you do the customer always comes first!

We were buying a new home and I sought mortgage bids from 3 companies for a 15 year mortgage, and 3 companies for a 30 year mortgage.
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
from Trident responded quickly and efficiently, even calling me one time while he was finishing a family vacation. He said he knew customers had choices for their mortgages and he promised good service. His mortgage rate was very competitive, and since he knew I was getting other bids, he made concessions on the mortgage processing fee. He also did something that no one else did....he gave us the right, before settlement, to lock in on a lower rate that what we committed to, should the
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
shift downwards, while waiting for settlement. It could only shift down 25 basis points, or 1/4 of 1% but he made that offer. As fate would have it, the mortgage rates went up while waiting for settlement, so we never got the 25 basis points down, but we did lock at a very competitive rate.
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
has two people that work with him.
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
...in the early stages....and
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
in the final stages. They were polite and efficient. But all 3 of them hid behind unseen "underwriters" who claimed they need more and more information....unending requests....more than 50 documents before it was done. And the requests bordered on the absurd that had nothing to do with the credit worthiness of the loan. They blamed it all on the bank scandals and problems in the financial world that required much more intense underwriting. It was ugly.
In the end, one of the most important things a mortgage company can do is meet deadlines, first the deadline to have a mortgage approval by a certain date, consistent with the sales agreement, and doing everything needed for settlement date. In my opinion, Trident did poorly on both.
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
started telling the real estate agent about a week before the mortgage approval commitment date, that he might not have the approval in time. The approval date was a Friday and at 5 p.m. on that date, we had no mortgage approval. The real estate agent called me and told me we had to modify the sales agreement. After 6 p.m. that date, Trident came through with the approval, after causing a lot of unnecessary anxiety. They claimed to have sent the approval around 3 p.m. via email, but everyone who was on that email did not receive it. For settlement, we were one business day before settlement, when the settlement lawyer's office contacted me at 2 p.m. to share that he had absolutely nothing from the Trident for settlement the next business day. Another round of grief. Ugly. It is obvious that Trident works on deadlines....and leaves the customers hanging to the very last minute. Trident did make the settlement deadline, but only in the final hours. Trident preaches good customer service, but what we got was a lot of ugly and jerking the customer around with a lot of odd ball and last minute requests. There was nothing smooth about it at all.
But the biggest surprise came at settlement when the settlement lawyer and I were talking about when the first mortgage payment was due, and where to send it. I said I would just set it up with the bank for automatic withdrawals each month....and the lawyer said ....don't do that....Trident is going to sell the mortgage quickly....and you better wait and see who to send the check to. Sure enough, after I made one mortgage payment, Trident sold the mortgage to someone else.....and then it hit me....that they had no incentive to treat the customer properly because it 30 days, they would no longer have a relationship with the customer.
What is the bottom line here....the whole process was ugly....a lot more than it had to be. Could all mortgage companies be subject to the same crazy and ridiculous underwriting....maybe....maybe not. Someone compared it to preparing for a colonoscopy. But does a mortgage company have the right to be so cold to leave the customer hanging on important deadline dates. Absolutely not.
If I had to do it all over again, would I do it differently? I would certainly consider it. I would ask if the mortgage is going to be sold. I would see if a local bank would take the mortgage. One of the other bidders for the loan was a local bank that has a very good reputation. The mortgage process is not a customer friendly process; buckle your seatbelt if you are getting ready to apply for a mortgage.

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE! Over the years we've gone through about 10 mortgage or refinancing deals. By far, working with
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
at Cobblestone was the best experience we've ever had. On the numbers side Cobblestone offered MUCH more competitive terms versus any other source I could find, including the many online tools available. And despite being with a large commercial lender for years, and despite endless solicitations to refinance, my old lender could not come close to Cobblestone's terms. On the customer service side

was extremely knowledgeable, took the time to walk through all available refi options, and patiently answered my many questions. She was able to do much of the work over the phone and later came to our house to review the deal and execute the application paperwork.

Unfortunately I did not end up using
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and decided to go a different route for my home equity loan.
Elmhurst Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
actually made me aware of another option with a different lender that she referred me to after it was clear what she had to offer did not make sense for what I was looking for. This was a great help to me and shows she truly cares about her clients and wants to help people with the best options available, regardless if she ends up getting the business. I had a great experience dealing with her and sincerely hope that you will consider using her for your financial lending needs!
