I had a short turnaround to complete a home purchase. Less than 30 days. Michael and his team at Preferred Rate got it done. Was able to close on both my home sale, and home purchase on the same day

Mike is absolutely the best. I've talked with Many lenders during the process and he is sincere and on your side. The others I spoke with were all about just the sale and not about my issues. I'm extremely picky and am telling you Mike is better than the best; he's does his best to be on your side. ... Read More

Can't speak highly enough on behalf of Michael and the Preferred Rate team. Michael was always available when needed, and went above and beyond to walk me through answers to my newbie refi questions. He gave me a fantastic rate, kept me up to date, and as a bonus provides educational videos and periodic home ownership tip notices. He came highly recommended to me, and I am doing the same for anyone looking for a great mortgage banker. Thank you so much Michael, Brian and Amber! ... Read More
