Tom was amazing in guiding us through our condo buying journey. He is friendly, approachable, and responsible. We never felt the hesitation to contact him with anything. He was always available to answer any questions we had, and to help us understand the overall buying process piece by piece. He was very patient with us, and helped us make the right decisions by explaning the pros and cons of the available options. He would respond quickly, and even answered our questions when he was out on vacation. He would never rush us for anything, and he laid out a nice timeline of all the dealines we had, and kept reminding us of those so that we dont miss anything. At the time of closing, he was great at communicating every piece of information or document he sent us, and readily clarified any questions we had, even if it was repetitive at times. After closing, he is still continuing to help us with any questions we have, and any options of re-financing which might benefit us as the market changes. We definitely recommend Tom, and we are sure that we have built a long lasting relationship with him.

Worked with Tom on my recent new home purchase loan. Been through this process multiple times over the years for both purchase and re-fi. This was easily the smoothest experience to date. Highlights included: * Clear, consistent communication * Explanation of the types of loans, fees, and timelines * Worked very well with my real estate agent and escrow service Excellent work that resulted in a low-stress loan experience and on time closing.

My husband and I worked with Tom Cummings over the course of a 3-month period to purchase our second home. I can't say enough good things about Tom. He was super responsive and kept the channels of communication open at all times. We met in person, over the phone, via videoconference, texted -- whatever was needed at the time. He came to the table with data and presentations but also his experience and advice. He's got good perspective on the market and I can tell really loves what he does. Ultimately, Tom provided a number of options to help us find the right mortgage product. And we had great discussion about the short vs long term, weighing out the options. When we eventually found the right home, he was there to guide us through the closing process. And despite the fact that he transitioned during this time from one firm to another, he kept close tabs, touching base frequently to make sure things were going smoothly. Since our home closed, we were able to meet with Tom in person and it really closed the loop. He reaches out and really make the effort to connect with his clients. I would work with Tom in a heartbeat on our next adventure!
