Why we should work together
Dean Curtis was very helpful and knowledgeable. He helped my wife and I get the mortgage that better suited us. Dean also made sure that the process of refinancing was a smooth one for us. I highly recommend Dean Curtis and loanDepot to anyone that is in the market for a mortgage.

My wife and I were recommended Dean at what felt like the last moment to get our dream home. We had been working with another lender who gave us bad advice about lowering our combined DTI, which left us deeper in the hole and nowhere close to loan commitment. Dean gave us great advice and alternatives that helped us fund our purchase. We got my parents involved in cosigning for the loan, they have great credit but are not tech savvy. Dean made sure my dad understood everything he was signing and got us a loan commitment before Hanukkah! He's great under pressure. We are ever so grateful.

Dean has been in the business for a long time, so he knows how to get you the best deal. I had a tight deadline and he got my loan prepared in a very short time which saved me both a bundle of money and some headaches. Terrific guy to work with and keep things moving along. I can highly recommend Dean Curtis.

Dean was outstanding from start to finish; professional, knowledgeable, responsive and very nice man. He walked me through the process, returned calls immediately, worked well with my broker and lawyer. I could not have asked for an easier or better experience.
Dru F., Tarrytown, NY
Dean was incredibly easy to work with - I am a first time home buyer and had plenty of dumb annoying questions!! He was always patient, always available and quick to respond. For someone like me who gets really anxious and needs immediate and constant reassurance I couldn't have asked for someone better. In the future, I will definitely go back to Dean for all my mortgage loan needs :)
Gloria E., Rye, NY
I started the loan process about the same time as a close friend of mine and it was fascinating to see the difference. I didn't have a single problem with Dean, quite the opposite. He answered questions immediately and offered incentives I didn't know about beforehand. He and Maureen asked for exactly the information they needed and in a clear way, did everything quickly and professionally, and got me a great interest rate. I always felt they had my best interests in mind. My friend had the opposite experience and by the time I finished my process, I convinced her to switch to Dean, and then all of her problems went away too.

Dean and his team came to my rescue after I realized my previous loan officer didn't have my best interests at heart. Dean put together a loan package quickly - within a day - a holiday no less! He and his entire team were responsive, supportive, honest, encouraging, and down-right fun! As a first time home buyer, they made every step clear. They never talked down to me or confused me with jargon. And again, they pulled me out of a bad deal at a very late stage in the process of home buying. Honestly, they are perfect. My roommate also used Dean and his team. She had the same experience. I will never use another loan officer. Dean is who you want on your side.

As first time buyers, my husband and I had questions and certainly needed guidance at times during our mortgage application/approval process. Dean was accessible (weekday or weekend), patient and always a true professional - it was a pleasure working with him!!
Liz B., Danbury, CT
Being a 1st time home buyer, I needed a lot of hand holding. Dean Curtis responded to every call I made to him and if I left a message, he called back swiftly. He was in contact with me regularly, answered all my questions and guided me every step of the way through this scary process. Dean got me a great deal on my mortgage. His services, respectful attitude and expertise are greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend Dean Curtis to all who are seeking exceptional mortgage lender services.
Lynette V., White Plains, NY
I was recommended Dean Curtis from loanDepot to provide my mortgage. Dean and his team were absolutely brilliant to work with! Dean was very thorough and explained everything to me in detail. He was in constant communication where my loan was through the entire process. He was able to secure my mortgage in quick fashion and I was able to close on my coop within 60 days. Dean surprised us by stopping by at the closing to introduce himself in person and congratulate us on the apartment. Dean and his team provide white glove service and I highly recommend him for all mortgages!
Nicole J., Forest Hills, NY
Working with Dean was great. He was up front with everything that had to be done, nothing hidden. If there were any problems he was quick to solve them. Outstanding communication. Always a phone call or e-mail. Prompt return phone calls as well. Closed exactly to the time frame he gave. Stellar performance. Thank you to Maria Morales as well for making the whole process easy.
Peter H., Yonkers, NY
I am so blessed to have had Dean to help me with the loan process for buying my first home. Always available, patient, kind, caring, professional, and sincere!
Renee W., Mount Vernon, NY
When I first went into the idea of buying a home, I didn't know what to do. Dean was very helpful. He was with me the whole entire time. From beginning to the end. Always checking on me, making sure I was okay. Always ready to answer any questions I had. I was very lucky to have him by my side during this adventure. Kudos to Dean!!

Working with Dean for the purchase of my home was really wonderful. He was kind, attentive, easy to talk to and extremely responsive. He proactively called to provide updates, informed us of what to expect and closed the loan on time. The underwriting team was also professional and quick to complete tasks. The online system was very easy to navigate, making the application process simple and fast. I highly recommend Dean and will use him again in the future.

This is the 4 th time that our family get services from Dean Curtis, Loan Depot. Dean is very professional, quick and what’s more important he cares about people. He will find a way when there is no more hope. He makes sure that his team responds to you very quick, so you won’t miss any dateline. I would recommend Dean and Loan Depot to anyone who is looking for a new mortgage, or have chances for refinancing. With Loan Depot you get the best possible mortgage rate.
Eduard Wedel from Dobbs Ferry , NY via Zillow
Dean was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He was able to get us the lowest rate and provided the quickest approval time. The application and approval process was smooth and efficient. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone looking to purchase or refinance a home.

I was lucky enough to meet Dean during my original home purchase; my Realtor put me in touch with him, and we were off and running immediately. He answered questions quickly and thoroughly, zero condescension with my less-than-knowledgeable status, and he got me a great rate and worked hard. I went to him immediately for my refinance. I would hope I never have to work with anyone else!
NYD from Queens , NY via Zillow
We used banks to purchase and refinance for the past 20 years and then our Realtor recommended Dean when we bought a new home in 2019 and then decided to refinance later on. Dean and LoanDepot processed the loans faster and more efficient than any banks we used before. We highly recommend him and his services.
Elizabeth from Yorktown Heights , NY via Zillow
I would highly recommend Loan Depot and Dean to friends. Dean made our loan application as smooth as possible. He was always available to answer our questions and returned our calls quickly.
shoutingmore from Pleasantville , NY via Zillow
It is very important to have a professional and good people around you when you purchasing or selling a property. I have used loan service from Dean 2 times already. And me and my wife are 100% satisfied for his smooth process and answer my questions in any times until i understand it correctly. I highly recommend this professional to others.
Lisa Sundbeck from HASTINGS HDSN , NY via Zillow
Dean was very attentive and worked hard for this loan through to the finish. Great responsiveness and would help outside of working hours - always ready to put things through on a rush when required.
Angel M. from Larchmont , NY via Zillow
My realtor recommended using LoanDepot.com and while I trust my realtor, I still had my concerns about not going to a big name bank for the most important purchase of my life. Within 2 emails with Dean, all of my concerns were gone. Dean kept a constant line of communication open and that helped me be well-informed and my expectations managed. He also works with a great team (Amy and Alicia) that also were on top of the process for me at every step. I was quickly approved, at a great rate and with no surprises. Can't ask for much more.
