What our clients are saying  

Luis and Mark are very responsive and knowledgeable. Within only a few days of meeting them we had an offer on our house and found our dream home. They returned calls and emails. We never felt neglected or unimportant. Honesty about timelines and details were a priority, which we really appreciated. A year later they were kind enough to follow up and even helped us reduce our interest rate. Thanks, Steve

Mark Folley was extremely helpful and informative always keeping us in the know during the purchase of our home. Mark was able to locate the perfect property for us based on the specifications we gave him in addition to letting us first know about the property once the price was lowered to current market value(-$100,000). Not only did Mark locate the perfect property for us, he also was able to get us our loan at a great rate during a time when many changes were occurring in the lending industry. Mark was able to make the entire process painless. I have referred several of my clients to Mark and all have been happy with the service and the extra steps he took that truly make Mark unique and a pleasure to work with.

Luis worked so incredibly hard for us to successfully obtain our funding in this difficult market. While we were stressed out working with very difficult sellers and attempting to meet the demands of the underwriters, Luis consistently kept a cool head and found solutions to any issues that popped up. He was great at keeping us informed as we journeyed through the process. We appreciated his professionalism and dedication. Luis stayed late, was there early and ensured that we closed on time. He and Mark make a great team and we thank them both for helping to secure our new home.

"Uniquely Qualified" hardly describes how great a realtor and lender Mark is. He helped us sell our home in a very difficult time. It took 7 months of constant contact with us and daily prodding of the banks for the house to sell. He never backed down to the buyers or to the lenders involved. He fought for us every step of the way, and after looking at dozens of houses and putting multiple offers on many houses, he came through in the end with our perfect house. We always felt that we were 1st on his list. He was easily accessible and either answered our calls or returned them promptly. We recommend him to everyone looking to buy or sell or refinance their home. He is a honest and friendly person in this whirlwind of a real estate market. We never felt he was pushing us into something we didn't want. He wasn't just out to make a sale, he was actually there to help us find the best house. Very "Uniquely Qualified" in this day and age. Thanks for everything!
