The 5 stars for Mike and his team are well deserved. I was looking to purchase a home, and wanted to find a someone to work with that wasn't at a big bank (my previous purchase was through Wells Fargo, but I knew the person). I did some research and found him on yelp, with great reviews. I was easily able to set up an appointment for a chat, regarding the numerous questions I had, including fees, etc. He took the time to answer every single question I had (and it was a lot). I felt really comfortable moving forward and using him as my mortgage broker. Usually realtors have their own broker they recommend or use, but I wanted to find out first, what my price point could be, before I hired an agent. He worked seamlessly with my agent, on all pre-approval letters, as well as when my offer was accepted! He was proactive in reaching out to the listing agents when I put offers in, to assure them of my capability to get approval for the loan.Turns out this was a major asset, as he personally knew the listing agent for the property I had an offer on! The stars aligned and I had my offer accepted, in a very competitive market. Once the process started, it was very smooth. He and his team answered all of my questions, regarding what type of loan, how I would do the downpayment, what paperwork was needed, what needed to be signed etc. They were very hands on, professional, and I would highly recommend! We ended up closing in 18 days, and that's with a loan (not a cash offer). I put full trust in Mike and his team and it paid off.

The logistics of processing this loan went smoother than I have experienced. Michael's continuously positive/can-do attitude, encouragement, expertise, along with his (and his team's) excellent communication left no questions unanswered and made it an almost enjoyable experience.
