Client: Laura Location: Silver Spring, MD
I recently worked with Mickey Ballantine on my cash out refinance and my experience was excellent. My situation was unique and Mickey and his underwriting staff were completely up to date and knowledgeable about the current regulations that governed my application. I contacted several lenders for offers and found that ALL of the other lenders had a really tough time navigating the regulations even when consulting their underwriting departments. I ended up with a lot of confusion and heart ache. Mickey at REMN on the other hand was incredibly knowledgeable and guided me through the process with confidence. There were no surprises and the process couldn't have been easier. To top it off, he offered the best rate too! I highly recommend Mickey Ballantine and the REMN team.
Client: Jason Location: Bronxville, NY
Mickey Ballantine helped to refinance our first home, and also helped us to get a mortgage on a second home. In both situations we spent significant time (and even some money) with other lenders who ended up telling us they could not make it work. Not only that, REMN's fees were cheaper than the other lenders. I would absolutely recommend Mickey to everybody. He is magic!
Client: Robert Location: Mt. Laurel, NJ
Worked with Mickey Ballantine at REMN on a refinance. Great customer service, closed on a loan within 5 weeks from the start. Mickey gave us several options as well as advice to get us out of debt. We are much better off. Thanks Mickey!
Client: Sean Location: North Arlington, NJ
Mickey Ballantine was referred to us by a friend, and we are grateful for that referral! Working with Mickey was simple, his experience and knowledge in mortgages made the entire process simple. He loves what does and it is reflected in how he handles his clients. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase a new home.
Client: Joe Location: Upper Saddle River, NJ
I was referred to Mickey Ballantine through REMN's partnerships with Terrie O'Connor Realtors. Mickey and his team understand what makes for a great customer service experience and deliver it - consistent communication, responsive to my questions and low fees/interest rates. Mickey was still following up with me the day I closed on the house. I have bought five homes now and this was hands down the best experience I have had in securing a mortgage. Highly recommended!
Client: Carl Location: Old Bridge, NJ
Mickey was referred to me to help me out obtaining my mortgage after I was having a hard time getting financing with another lender. He was so confident in getting me approved he is very knowledgeable, responsive and he delivered what he promised. Not only that, he got me ready to close in less than 30 days (which is very difficult these days). I will always recommend Mickey and he will be my #1 Loan Originator.
Client: Jennifer Location: Bernardsville, NJ
Mickey was referred to my husband and me after we were having difficulties with another provider (who was really stringing us along). We cannot thank him enough for his incredible service. We really thought that we might lose the house at one point, but thanks to Mickey's amazingly fast and thorough help, we were able to make it happen (and in record time - a few weeks!). We absolutely recommend him and will definitely be in touch for any future needs.
