Mikey F

It was an excellent experience working with Gary. He is honest and wants to do right by his clients. Initially we chose to finance our mortgage through BofA as we were intrigued by their down payment assistance “Grant”. Long story short BofA denied us for the grant 1 week before closing. Gary and his team took immediate action and we were able to figure out a way to make it work and still close on time. We had serious doubts that we may lose out on our house, however, Gary made it happen. I highly recommend and will be referring him to friends in the future!! ... Read More

I was initially hesitant to go with them but wow I'm so glad I did. Everyone I worked with was kind, professional, patient, and overall amazing. I was most grateful for the quick communication. Everything goes fast once you put the offer in and they responded faster than any other lender. That continued throughout the entire loan process too. I got a great rate and they eliminated most of the stress in getting the loan. I would definitly recommend Preferred Rate and will go back next time we buy. ... Read More
