    The agent Naren Kumar had contacted me in regards with mortgage rates and when I returned her call she wasn't available to take my call but left a message to retun my call, but so far I haven't heard from her since. It was disappointing.

  • Max Garcia
    February 8, 2019

    I can’t rate anything unfortunately because I didn’t get the help I needed for the approval. Unfortunately it didn’t work out. Because they don’t have the resources or information to help with people in my situation. Their website or brokers don’t have the capacity to mention they can’t help people on my position. So it’s a misinformation from their part. But I’m sure they can help others who have a amazing credit rating. So my rating and information don’t count. I’m been brutally honest. I’m sure someone else can get a better service., unfortunately for me I couldn’t.

    Naren contacted me very quickly after my mortgage inquiry and he told me all the option. He followed up with me during the process. I am considering going with his recommendations but just have to review some documents first.

  • Mary Anne Harris
    December 15, 2018

    I sent 3 emails to Naren and each answer back was a "canned" response with virtually the same message each time. I tried to call and left a message for him to call back but he never did. I then sent a 4th more detailed message and he answered back a short message which was not quite clear . I sent a message back for clarification but he did not respond. My experience was very impersonal .

    I received a welcome format email, replied to it, then did another courtesy reply. Never did have any further communication, no thank you or any sort of communication back, other than the first format email. I sensed this was telling of the likely "formatted" service...

  • Sam Roberts
    October 2, 2018

    They tried to call me, but somehow I gave them the wrong number? So they emailed me but it went into spam... I just searched for and found it. All of which is to say that from my perspective I never heard back from them. And I used a broker my realtor recommended.

    Would not give me a pre-approval like most brokers, said that he would only talk after I bought the house, also said no one does pre-approvals anymore. Seems to be a lazy way of doing business, also confirmed that the posted rate that made me click through to start. Very little trust in that methodology, this organization and also in ratehub for associating with these types of lenders. I will go back to searching on my own and will share my experience with all looking for houses.

    He is informative and detailed but he also needs to be more positive and taking initiative in finding what the customer is really looking for. I appreciate that he will reach me back again later on but I don't like to be asked a couple times if I' consider I would be approved otherwise is a waste of time to follow up with me.
