First time home buyer

 

Brian and his team were a terrific help and went above and beyond to help us out and take the first time home buyer fears away. Thanks to Brian's patience all our questions were handled right away and we closed on time. I would definately recomend The Jersey Mortgage Company and Brian to anyone


 

 

 

We were doing a large addition to the house, so we needed to refinance for a construction loan. Jersey Mortgage is local and they're very good. They get back to you right away. We’ve used them for our original mortgage, and we found that they’re the best. We had to re-submit everything as we did for our original mortgage, and it was quite a few requirements needed. We were able to do all of that via email. The closing agent came to our house so that was very convenient. 

We worked with Bryan and Paulina, and they were very good. They got back to us right away, usually in a few hours. It would never go past a day, so that was good. They were very honest and open with us, and there were no surprises. They expedited the process and only asked us for what they needed. I felt like they were for my benefit and they were there to help me out, and it wasn't for any other’s gain. We were able to turn around to them very fast because my wife and I are very email-oriented. It was a little easier the first time, but it was tricky, because I’m self-employed, and there were a couple of additional things required, but nothing out of the norm. 

They could have a one-time checklist though. It’s tough because the requirements change a lot as they go. When they hand it off to their underwriter or when they sell the loan to someone else, some things change. The rate and terms were not the best because of the type of mortgage that I did. I did a home-style mortgage and there’s not much control over those rates. But I’ve recommended Jersey Mortgage to a lot of people. They’re probably the most streamlined. It's the easiest way to get a mortgage with people that you trust, which is hard to come by.

 The closing was done this morning and I want to thank you and your team for the excellent service.

After hearing several horror stories from my colleagues of all the things that can go wrong, I really experienced a smooth process in obtaining the mortgage and now the closing. 

Thanks again. It is great working with you and your team.

 Best regards,

 Mark

 


Thanks Brian for all your help during this process. 

From our 1st conversation over 2 years ago you have worked with me and taken the time to answer every question.

I could not have done it without you, i'm truly grateful and am looking forward to moving into my new home.

 

Blessings

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for reaching out to me last month and offering to help us refinance our mortgage. I will admit, that at the time, I was skeptical and refused to get my hopes up. It wasn't until the appraisal came back that I began to feel a little hopeful. 

As you know, we signed the papers last night and a HUGE weight has been lifted off of both George and I. You have no idea how much easier life will be for us without that huge payment due every month. Thank you so very much!

 

I will be recommending you to all my friends and family. 

 

With great appreciation,

I would highly recommend Brian and the Jersey Mortgage Company group, to anyone trying to refinance their home! After researching several companies for a refi, and reading horror stories, we were so hesitant about going for a refinance. But with rates low, we could not pass. So on a recommendation from a friend, (who has been in real estate for over 35 years and was one of the Top Real Estate Agents in New Jersey for 20 years), my husband and I felt confident on her recommendation of Jersey Mortgage Company. We were very lucky to have connected with Brian Lavan and his team, who made this transaction smooth, easy, and painless!

Brian helped my wife and I buy our first home. At the time we were also planning a wedding so had a lot going on. Brian guided us through every step of the way so that we did not have to worry one bit. He was very responsive in answering all of our questions throughout the process which made us feel very at ease.

Very HELPFUL in every way. When more information was required he contacted me and followed up so I could get my pay out as soon as possible. He met my deadline and worked well with my scheduling.

Brian was very helpful during the process of buying our first home. As a first time buyer Brian was able to guide me and answer any questions I had. I would recommend him to anyone not only looking for a mortgage but for a friend that can help you during a sometimes complicated process. Thank you for all your help Brian.

I recently refinanced with Jersey Mortgage & Brian Lavan. They were outstanding! They were extremely helpful with the whole process and always an email or phone call away if I had any questions. They made the process of refinancing easy and stress free! I definitely would use them again!

Thank you,

In this day and age of aggressive business it is very hard to put your full confidence in people. Dealing with Brian Lavan has been much more than a business dealing, his knowledge of the mortgage business is truly extraordinary. The most important quality he possesses is care. He goes above and beyond to make the transaction go smoothly and discusses every possible option with you so you are 100% comfortable. He treated us like family as opposed to a client. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Brian for his professionalism and most importantly his care. Looking forward to future dealings.

Thank you,

Everything went well yesterday!

It was bumpy road getting it there but we did it. You are the one we should be thanking.

This deal wasn’t the easy one. However, from the first day we spoke on the phone, I had confidence with you.

I can’t express enough satisfaction of whole my family.

We just closed this deal but I guaranty you it is not the last one. 

Thank you again Brian.
