If someone looking for great lending experience Chris and his team is the place to go. I have worked with Chris 2 times in last 2 years ( First time for my primary home purchase and this time for the Refinance) . Chris is very easy to work with, he is very transparent in sharing the information and always available to answer any sort of questions , i have to mention that he responds very promptly. He always remembers the requirements and preference we have and works accordingly, He has an exceptional knowledge and with his right experiences he locks the rates at best time. Chris executes diligently and the defined process makes things easier to understand and check progress at any time. Chris always keeps his promises if not meet them he will always strive to beat them :-) I would highly recommend Chris ..! -Praveen

Hands down and by far the best Loan Broker we've worked with. I've worked with at least 9 brokers ranging from purchases to refis and Chris Black is the best. Chris was knowledgeable and has a thorough understanding of how the market works and most importantly what factors affect interest rates. That is extremely important because his expertise helped us get the best possible rate. Our loan closed earlier than expected and that minimizes our stress level and allow us to concentrate on the move. We will definitely recommend Chris Black to everyone we know and will work with him again. Thanks again Chris!!!

This is the 3rd time my husband and I have used Chris and Ashley for our loan and once again it was nothing but a GREAT experience. Their team is extremely knowledgeable and everyone responded quickly to all of our questions . They got our loan closed faster than we had expected and we couldn't be happier!!! Being in Real Estate ourselves we have our pick of lenders to choose from and Chris & Ashley are our go to team every time!!! Not only are they professional but super fun to work with!

I was referred to Chris by my agent after shopping around for financing without much luck. Even though we were highly qualified buyers in many respects, we had a short sale 4.5 years ago, which limited our options. Not only was Chris able to find a solution that worked for our family, the short turnaround time for formal approval and funding helped us submit a strong offer on a desirable home in a competitive market. Chris worked with us, our realtor, the title company, and our county officials to ensure that we had a successful close. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who needs a creative or customized financing solution that fits your family's unique needs!!

We used Ashley and Chris almost 2 years ago to buy and sell, I knew there would be no question in my mind that when we were ready to buy again we would use them again. When the time came we called them and said we were looking to purchase another home, kind of on a whim, but found our dream home and had to go for it. They were absolutely Amazing throughout the whole process, once again! They make the home buying experience enjoyable and as easy as possible. I have recommended them to so many other friends and we will absolutely use them for the third time when we are ready! They made us feel comfortable with our decisions and I let them run with what they knew was best for us and our situation. My family and I are so thankful for these two. Not only do we have an amazing loan agents in our past and future but great friends as well!

Buying a home in the Bay area is a daunting experience . It is hyper competitive and emotional . Ashley and Chris are stars !!!!! They guided my partner and I at every step of the way in the financing our home. Responsive to all our queries, super efficient, well versed on loan packages and calm ,they make a brilliant team. Without them our home purchase may not have been possible !

Chris and Ashley are among the most knowledgeable lenders we have ever worked with, and extremely pleasant and fun to boot! They are patient, thorough, and they make you feel like you are their ONLY client. The level of service and expertise far exceeds what one expects from a lender. Chris and Ashley are fastidious about finding the right loan product and best rates out there, and they go the extra mile to make it all happen. Highly highly highly recommend them for all your mortgage lending needs!
