"They wrote deceptive documentation on my original loan, in my opinion. Their communication during my loan process was zero, unless they were contacted by me. I had" to hire an attorney to work with them because they were lacked communication and were so deceptive in the numbers which never did get properly settled. When I moved into my new home, they kept sending my bills to my old address. This took an act of great pains to get them to acknowledge the new address they had already. I made my payments to them, at the advice of my attorney, in disagreement of the loan documentation. They were working with a home builder that appeared to be skimming funds and hiding the fact within the documentation. This was never proven and I still have this documentation. At the time of refinancing my loan to get out from their grip, they manipulated the documentation so the funding would not be accepted in a timely manner by using white-out and handwriting in dates. This document would then not be accepted by escrow as a acceptable document. They extended the time of payment by not accepting pay-off by wire and only by cashiers check and money order. What this did was force me to pay over 500.00 in extra interest. Most companies accept wire transfers at closing to avoid extra interest charges. This company appears normal on the outside but is very deceptive on the inside. They seem to operate under several business names such as
,
Pacific Mortgage, Northwest Mortgage and Westloan. Be wary as you do you due diligence, I wish I had.

"Recently, my wife and I were shopping for a mortgage to refinance our primary residence. If you have gone through this process in the past, you know that it can" be comparable to a root canal without anesthetics.
and his team went above and beyond to help us consider the best choices for us. They provided the following: - A comprehensive overview of our current mortgage - Various mortgage options and financial models to review amortization tables of each - Programs to help us consider the impact of additional payments over the life of the loan to help us look at various payoff models - Options in determining what makes the best sense for us - proposing programs outside of the standard 15 or 30 year 'packages' - Rates that bested those provided by our own local credit union which we have been members of for years At the end of the day,
and his team were more interested in helping us evaluate the program(s) that work best for us, and not what would allow them to get the 'deal' done more quickly. Their 'customer-first' approach is a rarity in a consumer
driven by a turn-and-burn mentality. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

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.

She said she regretted not being able to help us but said that if she discovered a lender who could handle our mortgage she would contact me. This is a very standard parting good bye and i would have expected never to hear from her again. Most "no" answers don't even get that far. In fact the other mortgage lenders we dealt with never even got back to us with a no - they just never called us back and that was the no answer.

called me with a bank that offered the best
Machias Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
for a mortgage. they keep their loans in house and underwrite within more intelligent and common sense guidelines. She had no working relationship with them as lender but provided me the info so i could go to them directly.
This is service way beyond what most people would expect. i don't know how much more someone could do in order to get a positive review. Whether we get the mortgage or not is irrelevant, it was the thought and effort.

I have been a Realtor in

The entire transaction was very easy. A lot of paperwork but that is part of the refinancing puzzle. Once my paperwork was complete

This is the second time that I have worked with
Machias Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
,
Machias Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
, and team in the last two years and I can't say enough about the experience! First of all the rate and terms provided were the best that I had seen in the marketplace (I was able to reduce my rate, remove my PMI, and get a 4,000 lender credit towards my refinance more than offsetting the costs of the refi and title company charges).

Secondly (and just as important), they were in frequent communication with me throughout the process. They even monitored the rates and were able to get me an addition 1/8th of a percent lower right before the rates moved up again! I would highly recommend them and always do so for friends and family buying or refinancing.

As two working parents with young children, my husband and I thought we would never have time to refinance our home loan. It seemed like it would be such a hassle to shop rates, talk to lenders and pull together all of the required information.

Though I’d just bought my home (and worked with

for my mortgage) rates dropped enough 6 months later to make a difference in my payments. I got back in touch with
Machias Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and quickly was able to lock-in the lower rate before they crept back up.
Machias Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
works fast, and is very responsive to requests. He was helpful through the process of refinancing and was able to move things along quickly. My experience with refinancing is that you can have a rate lock for 45 days and then you have a decent amount of time to schedule an appraisal and then closing. In my case I wanted everything to happen sooner rather than later and
Machias Mortgage Brokers Provider Name Locked
and his team were able to make it happen. I absolutely recommend them!
