I’ve worked with Mike on a few loans and refis over the years. He is always fast and accurate and sensitive to deadlines. His staff is courteous and pleasant. Finally and most importantly, he gets the best rates. I highly recommend that you call Mike and his team if you are looking for a mortgage. Enthusiastic five stars!

Mike was able to find a down payment assistant program that helped me close as a first time home buyer! I definitely see myself doing business with him again.

Mike and his team are so friendly, knowledgable, prompt, thorough and innovative. My fiancee and I were patiently led through the whole process of the mortgage application with such friendly and impactful advice. Mike, with his heartfelt care and astute financial knowledge, made sure we had the best chances for receiving the loan. He knew the market and the type of loan that would work for the self employed individuals. He gave us a strategy and a time line to follow and we had a seamless win- the maximum loan permitted at the time! Mike made himself available for a call as many times as we needed. He and his team stayed on top of the email communications. It's a real pleasure to work together. Genuine care and commitment to help us fund our dream! Thank you for devoted help! deeply grateful and touched by your vision and your work!

Unrivaled professionalism and wherewithal from, Mike Koran and his team! We shopped around for what seemed like forever until hearing about PRI through our Real Estate agent and couldn’t be happier that we ended up with them. Refied, on their advice, just before rates skyrocketed and were guided through the complicated process in no time. Mike’s the kind of guy you wish was handling more of your assets as he’s very careful not to let the mortgage companies take advantage of you through hidden fees. Highly recommend!

He was kind, patient, and supportive the whole way. He worked with me not for me or not for him. He worked WITH ME and meet my needs. He was also encouraging too. I was a ball of nerve the whole time while I asked him 100 questions in one sitting and he answered all my questions with a calm and collective mindset. He's not only a great lender but a great mentor. I am very glad I chose Mike as my lender and I recommend him hands down at 100% without hesitation.

We recently purchased our first home and used Primary Residential Mortgage as our lender. As first time home buyers, we were nervous and clueless on what to do. But working with Mike and his team helped ease that nervousness because they are professionals who knows what they’re doing! They were super patient, always informative and keeping us updated throughout the process. Shoutout to Andrew K. for being super responsive and communicating effectively! We highly recommend PRMI to anyone looking for a great lender! Cannot stress enough how easy, quick and smooth they made the process! HUGE thanks to you guys!

Need a lender you'll like? Call Mike! Yes, I know that was terrible. But seriously, Mike is great. I must have spoke to at least 8 lenders, everywhere from national lenders, big banks and local lenders. I was advise by my realtor that at times local lenders are the best for the area as they know the laws and rules the best. Of all the lenders I've spoke to, Mike was the one that stood out the most. Not only was he kind and gentle to explaining all the processes to me, but he also had patience. I asked a lot of questions because having a mortgage is a HUGE deal and responsibility. So, before I commit, I'd like to know what I am getting myself into. Mike also have an outstanding caring team that also helped walked me through the process. I've heard horror stories of working with lenders and how stressful it can be, but in all honesty, I couldn't ask for a better process. Mike and his team was knowledgeable and communicative. I cannot stress enough how communication affects the who process. I was able to reach him in all kinds of communications email, text, phone, snail mail etc. And if at times he could not respond to me immediately, he will communicate with me when he would be available next to talk. Mike and his team worked with me around my budget and needs and advising me on what they thought was the best for me. They didn't try to push me to apply for a bigger loan and or push me to buy a place out of my budget. In fact, it was the opposite. He even saved me money! Every time I had a place I was interested in, he requests for me to send it his way so he can give me an estimate of what my monthly mortgage and other miscellaneous costs would be. He informed me about first time home buyer programs and checked to see which ones I may be eligible for. Also, he very honest. If he didn't know an answer to a question, he has no hesitation to tell me he doesn't know the answer and would guide me to who he thinks would know the answer. He also worked hand in hand with my realtor, which is uncommon. He made my process so easy I cannot thank him enough. Everyone wondered how come I wasn't pulling my hair out; it was because of Mike and his team. To Mike, if you read this, I cannot thank you and Stephanie enough for all you've done for me. Literally without you guys I would not be here today with new keys in my hand. I don't trust people easily and especially when it involves finances, but I something in my says I can trust you two and you guys supported me and made it happened! I don't know how much work in the background you had to do as every time I speak to you guys, you've always reassured and encouraged me telling me how great I am doing despite being an anxious ball of nerves. So, thank you for taking such great care of me. For those shopping around for a lender, you can schedule a free consultation with him if you reach out to him. And when you do, you'll see why my instincts told me to chose them. Good luck to all on this journey of looking to chose a lender. I have chose mine and he's awesome.
