What should you be looking for in a lender and mortgage team

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q75ZkI-UDyE I've been working with the home loan education experience for about 15 years now. During that time I've studied the housing market, what buyers are looking for, how other lenders fail home buyers. My goal has always been...

There’s a lot that goes into purchasing a home, beginning with getting underwritten approved for a loan, finding a realtor, ramping up with the house hunting and contingencies, and then ending with new keys. Beyond the walls of that new home is a future, a place to live, maybe work, and certainly play. Beyond the walls is a family with many hopes and dreams. I see you and your future first before I think about anything else. So let’s get to know each other first. It is important we do it the right way.

Scottsdale, AZ’s Top Loan Officer

Michael is definitely one of a kind. A year prior I had wanted to start the process of buying a home and the lender that was recommend to me did a poor job. So I stopped the process. When I found Michael I gave it another try. He is well educated and really knows his stuff. He worked with my fiancé who resides in California and myself so well. He made it work and when little things would come up he always had a way to approach things. Thank you so much Michael for your help, patience and always answering every single question we had. It means so much to us.

As a first time home buyer I was very unsure of the process and did not know what to expect. I literally had my lender Mike with AP Mortgage pick up my loan during the middle of what was almost a horrible transaction as I was going through another lender first who had me set up to have a first and a second mortgage on my first home!! Mike assured me I did not need to have two mortgages and proceeded to close on my home with the original close date. I was amazed at how hands on he was. I got calls returned promptly and he kept me informed step by step of what was happening. The key to this successful deal was Mike taking the time in explaining everything to me. I was never left to feel as if I should know the mortgage or home buying process. I greatly appreciate the time he took in closing my house and I totally know without a doubt he went the extra mile to get me my home with all of its many exceptions. I would definitely refer Mike to my family and friends and can honestly say they will not only get the home they want but they will have someone who treats them like a real person and not just another loan application in the bucket sort of speak. Thanks Mike for helping my husband and I purchase our first home. We now have a sense of security and can provide an amazing home for our two boys to grow up in.

Michael was phenomenal on all levels of professionalism, expertise, and customer service. He came highly recommended from a friend who had a nightmare come true with a previous lender. She was blown away by Michael and his team and had renewed faith that there are great professionals out there. That being said, it is so important to go with someone you have thoroughly researched and you know is experienced and knowledgeable in what they are doing. Back to Michael- we went through the pre-approval process with him before we even started looking. I highly recommend this. We knew what we could be approved for before we got our hearts set on anything. We decided to go with a new build, and Michael was so instrumental in getting us the lowest interest rate over the 6 months while we waited for our house to be built. Rates went down and we locked 120 days out. He watched the market closely and was truly so interested in educating us about every choice we made, making us aware of benefits and disadvantages of everything. When you are making one of the biggest decisions of your life, you want a panel of experts on your team. A good realtor, and a good lender are key to this. Don’t let your arm be twisted if your builder offers incentives with a certain lender, go with the best, and you will likely get incentives regardless. Don’t make this decision lightly, and put Michael through the test, he will pass with flying colors!

Michael and American Pacific are a true class act and absolute professionals to work with. You will never not know where you stand with your loan or what is needed to finalize your sale/purchase. Michael is probably the best I’ve ever met when it comes to follow up and communication.

Our most recent transaction w/ Michael went through several transformations… originally beginning as a simple investment property loan, then morphing into a property search for a family member… and ultimately ending with us purchasing a new primary residence. Through all the changes and time involved with altering the transaction…Michael continued to be as responsive and helpful as he was on day 1. I’ve known many brokers who were super responsive until the first hiccup and then suddenly realize that there might be work involved and instantly turn to terrible communicators. Michael and the team at AP are certainly a cut above those outfits and I highly recommend them to ANYONE and EVERYONE. Skip the headaches and heartaches that tend to accompany your mortgage and speak to Michael Faulkner at American Pacific and you will be happy you did. I know my family certainly was.
