Although I have excellent credit scores, refinancing a mortgage can sometimes prove challenging. In tough economic times, I was upside down on my Las Olas condo in downtown Fort Lauderdale, but times finally changed for the better. Having been referred by my friend Randy to Marc Halpern at Halpern & Associates on Miami Beach, the mortgage refinance process proved a lot less daunting. Marc was professional and made sure I had his cell number in the event that I had questions or concerns.Not only dealing with Marc, I had the opportunity to speak with Ralph and Elizabeth on numerous occasions. The paperwork process seemed never ending and much more than I remember from past purchases, but Ralph and Elizabeth always had an answer to questions and walked me through the process flawlessly. I probably spoke to Marc 20 times during the mortgage process and had not a single problem or issue. Lot's of paperwork, but I was quickly advised that "times have changed." After everything was said and done, I was happy with the terms and conditions of my mortgage loan, the interest rate, and - of course - the extra cash in my pocket.Traffic from Fort Lauderdale to Marc's office proved challenging but that wasn't his fault. On the two occasions that I make the ride south, I drove around for an hour "to bring back memories" from a time so long ago. Having grown up in South Dade, I was a frequent visitor to MIami Beach back in the '80's and early '90's. Following Hurricane Andrew, I moved north to Broward County. Five stars to Marc Halpern and his staff at Halpern & Associates. Bill LewisFort Lauderdale, Florida
I can't say enough for how Neil handled getting our mortgage done. With Neil being in Miami Beach, my wife in Bradenton FL and me finishing up a work contract in IL, Neil was able to get us closed and in our house with in two weeks!! With all the hoops and hurdles of todays lending laws and given the issue of time, when he asked for documents that were needed in order for us to close we got them to him asap, to not hold up things on his end. In business you can't always please everyone but, Neil did a great job and I would highly recommend him again. Be realistic with your expectations and he will do the rest. Even our escrow officer here in Lakewood Ranch was raving on how easy it was to work with him....Thanks Neil for all your efforts
We couldn't have done it without you, Neil! As first time home buyers, my fiance' and I needed more than a mortgage broker,we needed a teahcer,too! Not only was Neil a fantastic teacher; he also got us through to our closing in record time and without a single hitch. He was always watching our costs and offering recomendations that didnt translate into any additionasl profits for him. He worked literally 24/7 to get us our new home. I cannot give enough praise to Ross Home Loans. Sincerely, Erin Lucas Director, Wilhelmina Models...
