Hello Mr. McMurray,

I thought you would like to know how much we appreciate Mike Rael and the help he gave us through our loan process.  We found him to be honest and upfront (our #1 priority), very knowledgeable and informative all the way through.  And he was always patient, easily reachable, and responsive to us.

We will highly recommend Mike to others and will remember him should we need his expertise in the future.

Over the past few months, I’ve worked with Jean to refinance my home in the East Bay of San Francisco. I expect to sign the loan documents next week, so the journey is about complete.

The purpose of this note is to express my appreciation for Jean’s courtesy and expert assistance in my refinancing process. As a result of several phone conversations and e-mail exchanges with Jean, I’ve become thankful for someone who is as patient and she is courteous. Jean’s responses to my questions have always been concise and complete.  The refinancing process is never fun. Jean’s efforts have minimized the pain, and I have much respect for her competence and customer courtesy.

Mr. McMurray,

We have just completed a refinance of our mortgage with your company. Mr. Kromberg handled our application process from the beginning and I believe firmly in commending exceptional performance.

From the beginning Rob was most helpful, we had previously worked with another mortgage company on refinance of our mortgage only to discover at the last minute that they failed to identify that our original mortgage had seller paid mortgage insurance.  To them that was a “show stopper”. When I was discussing this, on the phone, with Rob he rather quickly ascertained that the way the PMI was set up had been such that the refinance under HARP2.0 could occur. Further he investigated Fanny Mae and obtained their appraisal value and confirmed again that the PMI was not an issue.

He evaluated our submitted documents and suggested several options for our refinancing transaction. In my opinion his work was precise and thorough (as contrasted with the mortgage consultant from the previous company). He clearly delineated ALL costs and clearly outlined all of our options.

In all interactions we found him to be prompt, accurate and thorough.  His communiques were clear and accurate.

Finally, when we first were looking at using Weslend, I searched the internet for reviews as well as checking with BBB. Your BBB rating was a major determining factor in our decision to proceed with your company. I would say that many of the reviews on the internet were obviously placed by persons not have a clear understanding of how mortgages work. I felt that essentially all of the negative reviews I read were totally off the mark!! We have purchased 5 or 6 houses over the past many years and refinanced at least once previously, we have never dealt with a more efficient company than Weslend.

Thank you for the completely professional work you did getting us through the refinance process. Your knowledge, timeliness and candor all contributed to making this a really nice experience for us. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

After seven months of an exasperating experience of trying to refinance through BofA (how many times can one’s paper work get lost?!) I had the greatly satisfying experience of working with Marques Wood at Lenox. He expedited my refinance and within 30 days we were ready to close.

Marques was extremely diligent, thorough, intelligent and detailed. I cannot imagine a better experience than the one I had with Lenox, led by Marques Wood.

Dear Wes,

I am writing because beyond excellent customer service cannot be ignored! I am so very grateful and impressed with the phenomenal efficiency, quick turnaround, and almost immediate availability to attend to our insurance needs that Dani was happy to provide me. If only every aspect of my life could be so pleasant and easy to work through! Thank you for a great and easy experience, Dani!!

I’d like to thank you and your team for helping me refinance my mortgage. In particular, I’d like to pass along some comments on Mike Rael — as I appreciate having the opportunity to work him. Mike has a great attitude and his approach to managing the transaction was helpful, straightforward and timely – I couldn’t ask for anything more. If I need a new mortgage or want to refinance, Mike will be the first person I call.

Thanks again.

— Jim L. SVP, CFO
