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.
I cannot say enough about Keith Akada and his team. In the past few years, we have bought 3 homes and refinanced one time. Our first home purchase in Seattle was through a broker who passed our business around and had absolutely no personal touch. We knew we wanted something different for the purchase of our new home. We found the Mortgage Reel through Yelp because I hoped that trusting fellow home-buyers would lead us to an agency that would be willing to work with us and for us. We were so fortunate to find Keith and his team.
My husband and I have worked with Keith on one purchase and one refinance. Our first experience was a testament to the power of personal attention. Little did we know that we would be the first family to close on a house under the new mortgage disclosure regulations and no one knew how it would turn out. Despite this huge shift in the mortgage industry, Keith and his team were absolutely on top of the whole process. We literally received daily updates through the process. Have you ever heard of a banker who texted you at all hours of the day and night because he is working on your loan? He even worked around MY schedule because I work nights!
When it came time to do the refinance, we couldn't believe how simple the process was because, get this... The Mortgage Reel support staff filled out all the paperwork for us based on previous forms that we filled out. This company is equipped to use modern technology- if a form was required, I could simply take a photo with my iPhone and text it in. This was the first time I felt that the mortgage process had caught up with technology. They value your time and do the leg work for you.
Do yourself a favor. Call The Mortgage Reel. We wouldn't dream of going anywhere else!
My husband and I are out-of-state investors who had such a great experience working with Steven Fujita and Jason Ramos of The Mortgage Reel on our 1st investment property that we decided to work with them on our 2nd rental as well.
As with the first transaction, this encounter was just as smooth and efficient. They understand how hot the Seattle market currently is and how fast the loan process has to move in order to snag the deals. They got us quickly pre-approved, locked us into a good interest rate, and even helped us navigate through some minor loan hurdles along the way. In addition, they are both very personable and fantastic communicators! They respond efficiently to email and V/Ms, which we greatly appreciate.
We highly recommend Steven Fujita and Jason Ramos of The Mortgage Reel and wouldn't hesitate to utilize their services for future real estate transactions. Keep up the excellent work guys!
