Prior to working with Mark, I've had three other mortgage loans in Colorado and California and can say that through this process Mark was by far the most available, most informative, most result focused of any of the mortgage brokers/loan officers I've worked with.
Mark was great in getting us a loan this last spring. He's a true solution finding problem solver and had a focused drive on earning our business. We had a complex transaction where we had to manage the sale of our home in Marin in order to purchase our new house in San Mateo and meet certain criteria due to the size and structure of the loan. We also had to time the application of the loan and finances correctly due to timing issues for us to avoid tax issues in the sale of our Marin home. We even had emergency repairs to manage prior to the sale that effected our finances.
Mark was there every step of the way from finding the right loan program for our situation, through managing weeks of uncertainty as our home was on the market while we were under contract for a new residence in Half Moon Bay.
He was clear as to what documentation I needed to provide, what additional information was needed at other intervals and what questions the underwriters would have in advance as well as what problems would come up after the underwriters reviewed the nitty-gritty of our application.
A few hurdles came up in the process with the sales of the two homes potentially being at stake for various reasons and Mark faced all of those issues head-on, finding solutions for the ones he could help with, providing experience and guidance for those that were not in his control and also working very closely with our real estate agent to make sure the timing of everything lined up. Through any of the challenges Mark kept us upbeat. Mark also has a large network of other resources he could refer us to assist in areas that weren't his expertise. Making that network available to us was a huge benefit as to general advice, or substantive service when we needed it.
Hopefully, I don't have to go through the home-buying/selling process anytime soon, but when I do I'll be looking to Mark to get any needed financing.

After trying to refinance over the past year, Mark saw our refi through to the end with great professionalism. Mark’s responsiveness,honestly and down to earth explanations and recommendations were always well thought through and had ourbest interest at heart. I felt like Mark was a true partner in what can typically be a very difficult, emotional and exhausting process. He explained our options in terms that were easy to understand. Mark ensured that we were taken care of and that we got the best rate for our refi. Thank you Mark for all of your hard work in making this finally happen!

Ok, this latest refi was probably the 10th transaction with a mortgage broker and was by far the smoothest and least hassle of any. We were wanting to lower our rate and pull money out for a home project. Mark provided us with accurate numbers and great recommendations and advice. He followed up regularly through the process and was super responsive. He was involved in the doc gathering too; he didn't hand it off to an asst. or admin. We had a tight calendar for signing the loan docs and could only meet with the lender on a weekday evening. Was surprised and grateful that Mark came on his own accord. That was beyond expectation. Very reassuring and he was able to answer some last minute questions. Mark is a high service broker and high integrity person. Easy recommendation.

Mark helped my wife and I through process of buying a home. He was extremely accessible and willing to explain to us as much of the process as he could. Our product was somewhat out of the ordinary. Mark worked hard and matched us with the perfect lender. He was also kind and optimistic during the process. ( I didn't realize how important that is before beginning the whole thing!) Mark is everything you could want in a loan consultant.
Alex B., San Francisco, CA
Working with Mark was an all around great experience. I've recommended him without reservation to family and friends for home purchases and refi's, and for good reason. Mark is always available to take your calls, answer your questions and cut through the lender red tape to get your loan done.
Andy D., Santa Ana
Mark was very thorough and courteous in the processing of our loans. I did use him again and recommend others to him.
