Our impression with an initial mortgage broker left us feeling lost and confused. Not knowing what to do, we turned to Yelp for some ideas. We chose RPM because of all the positive reviews. We scheduled a meeting with Jason. He was very professional and knowledgeable. Although we told him we were not ready purchase a house, he was very patient and answered all of our questions without making us feel rushed. During our meeting, we mentioned that we had a previous short sale and were concerned about how that would affect us. He was very transparent. He explained the different types of loans, and the pros and cons of waiting until our non-FHA "qualifying" period, which would be in November. We had a tough decision to make. But we walked out of that meeting confident that we knew what to expect. After careful consideration, we decided to wait until November. However, our landlord unexpectedly notified us that he was putting our rental house on the market in a month. We thought it was a great opportunity and decided to purchase our rental. We contacted Jason to schedule a second meeting. He was very prepared and understood our need for urgency. He brought worksheets to explain different scenarios and his pick for us given our situation. Jason basically held our hands through the entire process and ensured the process went as smoothly as possible. He was prompt with returning our calls and kept everyone on schedule, including us. We are happy to say that we were able to close on the house before the set deadline. Jason and RPM were top notch throughout our whole purchase process and we would have no reservations in recommending RPM to any of our friends and family members.
We are writing this review for the truly exceptional service provided by Jason Ramos, relating to the recent purchase of our home. The effort put forth by Jason far exceeded our expectations and shed a new light to the word, “customer service.” Before the purchase of our current home, there were multiple homes that we thought about purchasing, with each one luckily not coming to fruition. Every time Jason would be readily available on any day, at any hour, prepared to crunch the numbers and present us the financing behind each deal. This required him to regularly take weekend trips to his office to provide us the financial analysis behind each home. When we finally found our ‘dream house’, Jason was once again on call, on a weekend, providing us what we requested in an extremely timely and professional manner. So much so we were able to submit an offer within two hours of us looking at the house using a combination of a first loan and a HELOC. We ended up getting a great rate in a rising rate environment and closed in barely over 30 days, which is very tough to do with two loans. We continue to be impressed by Jason’s friendly professionalism, and attention to every detail post purchase of our new abode. His ability to make a potentially stressful event stress free, with the same successful results, is something to be commended. As long as Cascade/Pinnacle mortgage continues to offer the level of service and results put forth by Jason Ramos, it will be our pleasure to highly recommend both Jason’s service, and the company’s offerings, to any and all potential home buyers and sellers. Sincerely, Matthew & Nina Chow
Our experience with everyone at Mortgage Reel was phenomenal! We currently live in California and were looking to purchase a house in Washington. Our realtor referred us to Steven and needless to say we’re very pleased with the outcome. We primarily worked with Steven on gathering up all of our financial statements. He made sure that we provided all of the necessary documents so there wouldn’t be any surprises when we went to get the loan approved and funded. We started this process in October/November before we found a property. On December 4th, we found a property, but the seller was planning to pull it off the market that day. Fortunately our realtor worked with the listing agent and was told the seller was willing to entertain our offer if we would be able to closed before the end of the year. This is where is got a bit crazy. Steven told us a less than 30-day closing could be done, but it would be tight with the holidays. Wow, is all we can say. Not only did Steven work hard to make this all happen, but so did the entire Mortgage Reel team. Everyone we worked with ensured we were on track for our closing date. Jason and Kendal kept us updated on the status and stepped in when Steven wasn’t available. Purchasing a property can be exciting and stressful, but with the Mortgage Reel team on our side, we were able to go through the process successfully and without the usual stress and back and forth many other people experience. Steven and Jason communicated very clearly with us and laid out all the steps from beginning to end. We appreciate all the hard work of the entire team on making our purchase successful.
Several months ago, I received an offer from Chase Bank to re-finance my mortgage. Sounded like a great offer with a lower interest rate so I requested the documents for signing. As I reviewed the paperwork, I discovered a few math errors and I had questions regarding escrow. I contacted Chase and after several frustrating phone calls and e-mails with no resolution, I opted out of the offer. Since interest rates were still lower than my current rate, I contacted Steven Fujita at the Mortgage Reel. He kindly reviewed my documents from Chase Bank and guided me through the re-finance process with a lot of patience and expertise. Steven has a deep understanding of this business and always provided a comprehensive explanation and advice on options available to me. As the loan process moved through the various stages, Steven kept me up to date by a phone call or email. I appreciate his responsiveness and personal touch. He is easy to talk to and always willing to help. If you are in the market to purchase a house or to re-finance your current home, I highly recommend Steven to be your mortgage planner.
We can not recommend everyone at Mortgage Reel enough! Keith and Jason were SO incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. They both always took the time to explain everything, and were so friendly, personable, available and giving with their time, it was really a great experience working with them. As a gay, newly married couple buying a house, we were a bit apprehensive about finding the right people to work with. From the beginning, we felt so much support here, and felt very lucky to have found the Mortgage Reel. They helped us work through some tricky paperwork regarding the new laws, with the utmost respect. Keith also recommended a real estate agent for us, who turned out to be amazing, so the entire home buying process was the best experience it could have possibly been, thanks to everyone at Mortgage Reel. You guys are the best!
My fiancé and I are first time home buyers so of course we had a lot of questions and concerns throughout the purchase process. Steven and his team managed to make this transaction easy for us, by answering every question we had and making sure that all the pieces fell into place to close on time. We were doing a VA loan, which tend to take a bit longer but Steven was able to get us closed in 33 days! Also we were able to sign our loan documents a whole week before our actual close date, which was good because escrow missed a few things that we had to resign! Steven’s attention to detail and fast response time, made it happen. I would recommend Steven to anyone who is interested in purchasing or refinancing a home. We will absolutely use him again next time we buy.
A few days after our offer was accepted, our bank was sold and our mortgage broker was suddenly someone in Texas we never heard from/could never get hold of. Unsatisfied, we read the reviews online and found The Mortgage Reel. We are so pleased with the entire experience! Keith explained the entire process to us and got us started, and then handed us over to Steven. He was wonderful through the whole thing, answering all our questions, anticipating what documents would be needed and keeping us informed. Steven ALWAYS answered his email within 24 hours. He even stayed in his office after hours to give us time to get documentation to him. He and the whole team truly went above and beyond to give us 5-star service. I cannot recommend The Mortgage Reel enough!
With the help of Steven, my fiancée and I recently closed on our first home. His aptitude throughout the process comforted us and he always looked at the deal from our end of the table, not wanting to stretch us too thin on our monthly payments. Once our financials were laid out and credit was checked, he was quickly able to get us pre-approved for an amount that we were comfortable with. During the credit pull, our scores were lower than we would have liked, through his guidance we were able to bump our scores up to a level that improved our interest rate. He was always very accessible, answering questions and giving advice at all times of the day. I highly recommend Steven and look forward to working with them in the future.
Steven Fujita did an extraordinary job in helping my husband and I work towards obtaining a mortgage loan for our move from California to a retirement home in Washington. He was endlessly patient in explaining what documentation was required and why he was asking for it. We were not certain a loan would be required, as it depended on the price of the house we might purchase after the sale of our own. Despite that uncertainty, Steven worked tirelessly to keep us on track with making sure our documents were in order and updated as needed. He always returned our calls promptly and routinely checked in with us on our home sale status. We would highly recommend Steven to anyone that is looking for excellent service!
I had the pleasure of working with Steven on purchasing my new home. I am an Underwriter for a mortgage company so I am pretty picky on how the loan process should work. Steven thinks like an Underwriter. He knew exactly what documents to get up front in order to submit the file. He knew when things would fall off of our credit so he knew when we were supposed to run our credit. He always picked up his phone and replied to every email in a timely manner. He kept us informed on exactly where our loan was at all times. I could not have asked for a better loan process. I highly recommend using him and his team and look forward to working with him again.
We are so glad we went with Keith and his team at The Mortgage Reel. Our realtor actually recommended a different lender but we decided to shop around a bit and Keith got us a better deal and more importantly: whenever we got off the phone with him, we felt like we understood what was going on. We closed on time without a problem (3.5 weeks) even though we only first contacted Keith a day before putting in the offer. His entire team was on top of everything every step of the way--every email and every phone call got an immediate response. We trust him and his team completely and have enthusiastically recommended them to absolutely everyone who we know.
We were buying our first rental property and need some hand holding. Steven Fujita was our Loan Advisor. He was extremely patient and gave us plenty of support and explained the whole process very clearly. He provided advise on all the paperwork we needed and explain how the mortgage math worked out for our rental. We own multiple small businesses and our tax returns are pretty complicated. Steven and his team guided us through the process flawlessly. Our property purchase closed 10 days early and we are very happy with the service that we got. We would recommend Steven and Mortgage Real to everyone. Great service!
I highly recommend Steven and the team at Mortgage Reel. My husband and I were nervous about all the extra steps required to secure a jumbo loan. Steven was there every step of the way, from pre-qualification through closing on the home loan. He is highly responsive, answering questions on evenings and weekends, ensuring no time delays. We were able to close on time, within 30 days. Our realtor even said that our lender was the most efficient and responsive they had ever worked with. If you’re interested in a home loan, I highly recommend working with Steven at Mortgage Reel.
Very impressed with Steven and his team from preapproval to closing! I was very overwhelmed with the entire process of buying a home for the first time but Steven and Kendal and the entire team led me through each step, were extremely thorough and detailed, answered all of my questions, were very communicative, open and approachable, quick to respond to my emails, met all deadlines and closed on time! The whole process was much easier and less stressful because of their behind the scenes hard work. Highly recommend to anyone for their professional customer service and dedication!
