I recently refinanced my mortgage with Ira. He is a true professional, and kept me informed and updated along the process. As rates were going down, I was unsure of when to lock in, and at what terms. Ira gave me almost daily updates and perspectives, which was invaluable. The loan closed smoothly...thanks Ira.

Ira was extremely helpful in securing my loan for a new home purchase. Ira helped us manage through a volatile rate market during the early days of the COVID pandemic. Ira was always available whether via email, office phone or mobile phone. Ira also helped expedite our closure so that we were able to close early and get into our property.

I have worked with Ira on new mortgages and numerous refinancings. He has always been incredibly reliable, knowledgeable and efficient in handling all aspects of the process. I once made the mistake of not using his services and quickly learned my lesson. Application problems, closing issues, etc. with the other rep I used :( I will never use anyone other than Ira again! From the initial discussion of available options to the application and closing, Ira was always available and quickly responded to any questions or issues that we had. Our refinance was processed without a hitch! I will always highly recommend him to anyone I know.

I am so grateful for Ira’s amazing work and unflagging support during the entire process of refinancing my home. It was very comforting to know that I had such a knowledgeable professional to help me through this unfamiliar event. Ira is responsible, reliable, diligent, and incredibly trustworthy. He was available to answer any questions at had, no matter how minor or detailed, and he was quick and concise about the information and advice he offered. Ira also showed great patience explaining the intricacies involved with the refinance process in a clear manner. And he ultimately helped me secure an excellent rate. I so appreciated Ira’s responsiveness and integrity, from my initial closing two years ago, and now through to this refinance. I heartily recommend Ira to anyone looking to purchase or refinance their home!

I have used Ira two times already and will continue to highly recommend him to others. I find Ira to be buttoned up, level headed, and extremely responsive. On top of this, the rate provided was excellent.

Ira was fantastic to work with on my refinance. He is incredibly responsive, and very patiently walked me through the whole process and answered all my questions. Ira made it a very efficient and easy process. He got me a great rate that was lower than I expected, and we closed faster than I expected as well. I would highly recommend Ira to anyone.

Ira provides over the top service. Responds to questions quickly. He knows his product and over saw the process from application to close, always knowing where we were, issues involved etc.
