I recently bought my forever home with the help of Greg and his team. The purchase went so smoothly. We closed in 30 days, which is not the norm in this lending environment! They gave me the best rate they could with no points and no fees. Wow! And I received a $2,300k credit! Beyond the numbers, their attention to my application and prompt communication along the way was impressive and appreciated! I would use them again and I recommend them to anyone who wants the best rate AND best service!

Our experience working with Greg Peppler was exceptional. From start to finish Greg walked us through the process of buying our first home in California. We had a variety of questions and concerns, including a unique income situation, and Greg helped answer our questions and worked with the finance department to get us pre-approved for our loan. This all proved to be extremely helpful amidst the tight housing market during COVID-19, and because of Greg and his team we were able to act faster than our competition. We feel like we ended up with a great home and even better loan terms. I would highly recommend Greg and his team.

I recently refinanced my home with Greg Pepper in San Diego, CA. I have bought several homes and refinanced many times. Every time seemed like a series of waiting with no word, and then a mad scramble to get docs prepared before some random critical date. Working with Greg was the opposite. I knew ahead of time the critical dates, and was able to prepare and have the information needed without having to drop whatever I was doing at that moment. Lastly (and most importantly) I received a better rate than friends that refinanced at the same time. He did a great job making sure I was represented got the best Loan available.

I used Loan Depot and Greg Peppler as they were recommended by my real estate agent. I was not disappointed. The overall support was outstanding and we closed our loan in 21 days which was awesome. The process was seamless and I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a quick close with great support!

I can't say enough about the positive experience I had working with Greg Peppler working on the loan for our first home purchase in San Diego. Greg could not have been any better throughout the process and walked me through in detail from start to finish. Buying a home is an incredibly stressful experience, and Greg made the everything as seamless as it could possibly be. Not fully understanding my options, Greg took a great deal of time and showed patience coaching me through all of my options. In the end he gave me all the tools I needed to make an informed decision on what was best for my family. His communication skills are top notch and I’m certain you won’t find better service anywhere else. I would recommend Greg Peppler to anyone looking looking for a home loan or refinancing. We couldn't be any happier to be in our new home and I can't thank Greg enough.

Greg came highly recommended to us by our realtor. We were so glad we went with him! He made the process easy - most of our documents were signed online and we closed in 30 days with a VA loan. He is personable and we definitely felt like he had our best interests at heart. I highly recommend him for purchasing or refinancing a home!

Greg and his team were incredible to work with! They provided so much more than I expected during this process. We were able to close within 25 days with a great interest rate and a generous amount of lender's credits which basically eliminated my closing costs. They definitely impressed me through this whole process and I highly recommend them for any and all loan processes.

He assisted us in every way possible. He helped get us a larger loan then what we initially qualified for in order to close the deal for our home! We closed well ahead of our 21 day escrow and was a breeze.
