Mike Koran was friendly, professional, thorough, efficient and patient. I provided the required documents and Mike’s team took it from there. When I encounter a minor issue regarding my homeowner’s insurance Mike had the resources and experience to quickly resolve the matter and get my loan approved quickly. I will use Mike for all my future financing needs.

Stephanie Wood and Mike Koran are excellent communicators and did not shy from sharing not-great news at times, but also providing background and next steps. IMHO communication is absolutely vital, especially in high-stakes transactions.

Michael's office would always contact me as soon as something urgent requiring my attention came up. Additionally, when I had questions on even minor things, his office always answered my calls and took me seriously when I asked them to explain things about the homebuying process that I didn't understand.

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.

Michael and his team made being a first time buyer extremely easy. From deciding to purchase a home, to having keys in hand, took us less than a month. We’re very impressed by how responsive PRMI has been and how prompt they have been with telling us exactly what they need so we could close quickly. Highly recommend
