I just want to say thanks again for all your help with the purchase of our home. This is my 3rd home purchase and by far was the quickest and easiest to get thru. We had a very short amount of time to close on the house after the bank approved the short sale, you and your team stepped up and got it done. Awesome Job to you guys!!
I would like to take this opportunity to compliment you and your team of professionals who worked on refinancing my home. My goal was to take advantage of the low rates and reduce my house payment. I had called several mortgage brokers and you were the first to call back. You didn't wait a day or send an email. You were on the phone with me within an hour taking care of business. You and your team were available, even on weekends, answering my questions and guiding me through the process. The end result was that my house payment is now below a thousand dollars. I live in a very desirable part of Phoenix in a very nice house. To have the payment I have, thanks to you, is not only amazing but gives me a little more assurance in these uncertain financial times. My thanks to you and your team for your professionalism and personal caring in handling this important financial decision that will have a lasting and positivie effect on me and my family.
As a note of recommendation and thanks; we thank John Reising for the splendid job that he performed for my husband and I for processing our mortgage loan quickly and precisely.
During the process of selling our home and purchasing a short sale home, John was on top of all of the various tasks and paperwork in order to allow us to move into our new home. This was a huge relief to us, knowing that was could have been faced with moving into temporary housing due to title processing.
John's personal advice, support and service along with competitive rates sold us as a repeat client.
I have great confidence in recommending John to my clients. First and foremost, I know that he will answer their calls, listen to learn how he can best help them find the best loan program for their situation and he will follow through with regular contact and great customer service. I have found John willing to take the time to counsel potential Buyer's who might have might have blemish marks on their credit reports and show them what they can do to more easily qualify for a mortgage or even a lower rate. He's willing to take the time to do what's in the best interest of the home Buyer, not just take a loan application and move on. My clients report that John's rates and terms are generally in line with the best they will find. Most have told me that they would be willing to pay a little more than the lowest rate they might find on the internet because they know that John is close by and always available. John is always at the top of my list of recommended Lenders.
"Thank you! When it looked like the deal was going to fall apart, you really came through!!! Thanks for being on the top of your game! I love it when people earn my business and you did exactly that. I look forward to doing more business with you in the future. - Eric Nyquist-TheNyquistGroup.com
