Baret and his team were phenomenal. From Day 1 we felt like we had a person we could contact to explain the process. This was our first time buying a home and we had a lot of questions. Baret personally talked to us each time, sometimes for a lengthly period of time, to answer all of our questions and ensure we were comfortable with the next steps. His team was extremely communicative and always got back to us right away. Buying a home can be an overwhelming process but Baret and his team made the mortgage process a piece of cake. Thank you!

We've used Baret and his team for two home purchases. They are simply the best at what they do. They're super easy to get in touch with and make the entire process simple.

Working with Baret Kechain was refreshing. He knows his trade very well. He was completely transparent and up front about the process, rate, fees, and schedule on day one. From first call to keys in hand we closed in 20 days. His team never missed a beat. This was my fourth personal mortgage experience. Baret sets the gold standard for the lending industry.

I cannot express enough how grateful I am for Baret, Dillon and Mary being in my corner during the home buying process. With my loan being a tough one to pull off (being a freelance TV professional), Baret, Dillon and Mary were incredibly patient and handled everything seamlessly. I was warned by many that my loan may not happen because of the correlation between the difficulty of certain condo purchases and a freelance employment situation, yet Baret and his team at Loan Depot were able to guide me to a cost efficient and timely closing. Their customer service was also off the charts! I cannot thank them enough, and I would 100% recommend them for anyone looking to purchase a home in NJ.

Some friends from our neighborhood recommended Baret. We had a rather complicated mortgage situation and Baret and his team did fabulous work to help us navigate the challenge, get a terrific rate, and stabilize our future. Thanks!

My wife and I happened to get Baret's info from a random open house (not the home we ended up purchasing) and we are very lucky we did. Baret and his team are highly response, engaging, and knowledgeable about the local market. Of all the parties involved in our home buying experience, his team at LoanDepot was the strongest in terms of guiding us through the process. We feel great about the mortgage product and rates we were recommended.

Overall my impression of the group is VERY good. They were fast at communication, very friendly and gave some of the best rates. They went above and beyond what some of the other lenders I was in contact with did. My 2 complaints: After I closed and moved in, I receive physical letters DAILY (for the past 2+ weeks now) from someone that is using LoanDepot's name asking if I want life insurance. The mailing address/letter head states its from LoanDepot; so I actually think that the letter is important only to be fooled when I read that its another solicitation for life insurance..... 2: During the loan process, one of the associates handling my loan got my previous address wrong, and when I told him that the address was wrong, his response came across with some attitude. I may have misinterpreted his response, but I felt that he was giving me attitude. Additionally he did NOT correct the information in followup documents.

Baret and team were great from the very beginning, as a first time buyer they always had time to walk me through questions and doubts. Timelines were very clear and professionalism was probably the main characteristic across the whole team. Each person in their specific roles were very knowledgeable of their area. Special thanks to Violet and Jamie, who provided real time info during the process
