Jamal’s commitment to education never waivers. Jamal graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Science in Finance, and then went on to obtain an MBA from Drexel University. “Not one person can take away what you learn from an experience and for this reason, I am dedicated to educating myself while passing this knowledge on to my clients.

We have done several loans with Jamal, and he is hands down the best in the business. He knows the market, rates, volatility, and stays up to day with world economy news and changes. You will not regret working with him. I trust his advice and guidance, and always know he is looking out for our best interest.

From the very first conversation I had with Jamal, I felt 100% comfortable discussing my financial situation. I was talking a few lenders but quickly decided to proceed with Jamal after that conversation. And boy am I glad I did! He's knowledgeable, kind and quick to respond to emails/calls/texts. As a first time home buyer, he supported me through every step of the process and answered my million questions with patience and kindness. He made a stressful situation more bearable.

From the moment we first spoke with Jamal knew I was in good hands. The process was seamless, communication great, answered all questions & was a pleasure to work with. AND...a 10 day escrow, didn't even think that was possible. Thanks Jamal, Beverly Cooley

From the very first day that I contacted Jamal Akbar in regards to getting a loan, he was very knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He explained all the possible scenarios I could choose from based on the amount I was able to put as a down payment, explained the different interest rates I could choose from and the reasons why my options were at those rates. He also provided detailed breakdowns of all the costs that would consist of the mortgage payment and down payment for me to review ahead of time. I was impressed with his detailed experience, breakdowns of costs and efforts. In addition, Jamal was a very nice person to talk to. He always made me feel comfortable and that he cared about my needs. He was very easy to work with and I couldn't have asked for anyone better. I loved how most documentation was able to be signed, submitted or emailed online. It was very convenient. I was surprised with how smooth the process was going as time went on. Jamal was very patient and allowed time for me to work out my finances at the end of the process.

Jamal closed our loan in 15 days! He was awesome to work with through the home buying process. He responded to my emails and phone calls quickly, and he even works on the weekends to get the job done. Jamal has a solid understanding of loan products offered for all circumstances. You won't be disappointed working with him.

Jamal helped me close my home on time, efficiently! I compared Jamal to several lenders at other firms throughout the process and he was the quickest to respond and most caring. Despite millions of questions I had for him, he patiently explained everything and he did everything he could to lower interest rates and fees to fit my budget and financial goal. Jamal was prompt, professional, and made me feel welcome. I highly recommend Jamal to anyone looking for a trustworthy lender. As a matter of fact, he is helping me finance a rental property I'm interested in and look forward to continually working with him in the future.

I've worked with Jamal several times to secure a mortgage, and my recent home purchase was another great experience. Jamal always answers my questions quickly and accurately. The next time that I need a loan, I'll reach out to him. Jamal and his team are the best.

Jamal was referred to us by our agent and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We purchased our last home many years ago and weren’t quite up to date with the real estate/loan process. He was amazing taking his time to explain everything in as much detail as we needed and in terms we understood. He realizes how frustrating and overwhelming purchasing a home can be for his clients and walks you through every step along the way. His response time when contacted, his incredible honesty and knowledge of the industry are just a few of his many qualities. Hats off to Jamal!!! If your looking for an amazing home purchasing experience, he’s your guy.

Jamal came highly recommended by our agent and boy am I happy to have given him a call! Jamal is very detail oriented and never leaves anything to chance. I appreciate his willingness to provide different loan options and also follow up with any additional documentation that might become necessary based on his clients circumstances. We are not first time buyers, however we appreciated the detailed information he provided for the type of loans available at this time. Jamal is very professional and reliable, I recommend him full heartedly and look forward to working with him again.
