Our family has now refinanced twice with Gary and have saved a good amount of money in doing so! Even with the uncertainty with Covid-19, we were able to get a lower interest rate and close in May of 2020. Gary has incredible attention to detail and makes the process feel rather seamless. Thank you!

During the Pandemic, the last thing on my mind was to do a refinance. I was introduced to Gary Lentz, He was on top of it from the first minute, I mean within saying hi via email, I got a text, and email, with step by step what I need to do in ten minutes. OMG, it was one of the most easiest transactions ever in my life. I have done a few of these, and usually, they take between 1-3 months, and halftone of papers. BUT not with Gary, within few weeks, done, signed. During the entire process, I was updated with what is going on, every time I asked him a question, or what is going on I get an immediate answer. Thank you, Gary, for a job well done!

Gary is a pleasure to work with. He has years of experience in the industry and is a knowledgeable and trusted source of valuable information. I highly recommend working with him.

Gary helped us with our mortgage over two years ago. We appreciated his customer service then, and we REALLY appreciate it now contacting us about a re-finance in these uncertain times. Gary stays in touch, through thick and thin. He explains details so the lay-person can get it. He is knowledgeable and friendly. He gets things done. It doesn't hurt that Gary and Sarah have known each other since high school ... we won't say how long ago that was. Great community resources. Thanks Gary!

I called and talked with Gary concerning a bunch of questions I had about various loan options. Cathy and I have had a number of loans over our 54 years of marriage, but Gary’s explanations were the clearest and to the point of any we’ve experienced. Questions listened to and answered clearly and realistically. What a treat to talk with him!

My husband and I have worked with Gary on two re-finances and were more than satisfied with the outcomes. He’s a true professional, knows the business and is always available. If you are thinking about buying or refinancing your home, be confident in your choice of Gary Lentz. Plus, he’s just a good guy.

I worked with Gary early 2019 on a home purchase which went smooth and easy to finalize the deal. Later in the year he notified me of a better interest rate that would be best for me if I found interest in it and I jumped on the deal. Another smooth transaction during the process. He is a pleasure to work with and I have kept him in mind if anyone asks for a recommendation.

Gary was referred to us by the Loan Advisor we had used to finance/refinance our homes in previous years, but who had retired. What a smooth transition! We felt like we went from having had the best Loan Advisor to….having the best Loan Advisor! Our situation was unique and Gary reached out to us with a unique solution—one that we had not considered, and one that will save us thousands of dollars by the time our homes are paid for. In addition, we appreciated Gary’s communication, and walking us through every aspect of our transaction. He’s professional, thorough, and an expert in the field. We would use Gary again and would recommend him to anyone who is in need of home financing, refinancing, etc.

This was my forst time using Loandepot and their online account application process was really easy to do. The loan was approved and closed quicker than I thought. I think it took under 30 days. For the forst time I did not have an appraisal required and that was a pleasasnt suprise and a first. Gary Lentz did an excellent job
