Testimonials

 

I’ve had a home prior to moving. I moved to Pennsylvania and purchased a home and I moved back to New Jersey. So I wasn’t planning on renting for so long. Marcus, from Jersey Mortgage, was referred to me by my sister who used him on two of her prior home purchases. So I had reached out to him and I said, “Before I go to the whole home loan process are you able to assist me to see if I’m even qualified?” And he was happy to do so. The credit report came back and he was like, “Okay. Well, this is what you should do.” He walked me through how to actually improve my credit score before we actually moved forward so that I would get the best rate. 

I had his cell phone and it didn’t matter what time of the day or if it's a weekend, I would call or text him. He immediately either answered the phone or responded back via text. I felt extremely comfortable. I would refer Marcus to anyone. He was probably the most patient person in the whole process. I even asked questions that weren’t related to loans, not related to the home and he was able to provide me guidance there as well, being a homeowner in New Jersey. So because I only owned a home at PA and a lot of things were different he was able to give me some information and if he didn’t have the information he would look it up and send it to me or provide me with someone else to call that would be able to help me. 

Also Marcus was very objective. He’s very fair and he’ll tell you, “Maybe now isn’t a great time,” or “Yeah. Sure, jump in and go for it.” He always gives the pros and cons of everything. He doesn’t push you to do something that he doesn’t really think that you might be ready for. He’s very honest. I got a FHA loan and the process was very simple and they were very hands-on so I didn’t really have to do much during the initial application. It was just a very smooth process. It was actually a lot smoother than my first mortgage. As long as you can read and follow directions, you should have no problems navigating through what’s needed and then if you have any questions they have a whole team assigned to you. So you can always get someone regardless of the time of the day, which is amazing. 

The negotiation part was what held some things up for a little while. But it wasn’t even long because they have a process where they ask you everything upfront. You provide the information and then once the deal is actually sealed with the sellers of the home, it just takes off from there because all the docs were lined up, just waiting to push the button out. It was just a couple of times where if they asked for a document, someone else would ask the same document. And I’m like, “Well, I already gave it.“ And they’re like, “Oh, okay.” was wonderful. Also I’ve been watching the market and doing my research and I definitely got a fair rate.

Hello everyone, 

I just wanted to thank Jersey Mortgage team for your hard work! Alex and Eden closed today and everyone is extremely happy.

 God bless your business!

 He is wonderful at his job, there is no one I trust more and the reason I ask all my potential buyers to receive a preapproval letter from him even if they already have one. There is nothing worse to me than taking out one of my clients to find the home of their dreams and them missing out on a wonderful opportunity because they weren't properly qualified, so this is really the first step in your home buying process. 

He will ask you questions, get to know about your situation a little more, tell you what documents he will need you to send him, as well as answer all of your questions and let you know ALL of your financing options. Then him and I will work closely together throughout the whole process to find you the perfect house that you feel comfortable affording and make sure you have a smooth transaction :)

My family and I would like to thank "THE FRENCH TEAM" for all of your help during the loan process. Your team's hard work and dedication to helping me close on my 1st home.Your team worked behind the scenes to ensure that I closed on time. You said in the beginning that this would be a smooth process and it sure was. I dealt with another company before going to Jersey Mortgage and it was such a horrible experience that I was willing to give up on owning my own home. And if you couldn't get it done I would have but you did and I thank you for that! 

Marcus is a very professional and knowledgeable loan officer that I had  the pleasure of meeting during my process. 

I just want to take a minute to commend your Company on an outstanding team you have working for your company,"THE FRENCH TEAM" is OUTSTANDING and GETS THE JOB DONE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone I know who needs a home loan will be calling you first! I know that you will take care of them as well as you did us. Thanks again!

On August 10, 2016 I closed on my home using Jersey Mortgage as the Lender.   My experience working with Jersey Mortgage for the last 3 months has been one of the best and most calming experiences I've encountered.  In particular, I was impressed with working with Marcus French your loan officer. Buying a home can be a very intense and intimidating process, but Mr. French and staff exhibited great patience and excellence in explaining the intricacies involved with the loan process in such a clear and concise manner. Mr. French and staff's representation of Jersey Mortgage is something to be commended for and it would not take much effort for me to recommend Jersey Mortgage to family, friends or associates.  

There have been many years in between of disappointments in the home buying process. I am a divorced mother of one son, and due to unwarranted financial setbacks and several denials from mortgage lenders, the conclusion to this story was a successful one.

I wanted to send this email to your attention letting you know that I received an excellent rate very competitive with the best offers out there. I am very PLEASED.  Mr. Simpson, it says a lot when clients take the time to write exceptional ratings about your company and staff members. You should be very proud!!

Marcus French represented Jersey Mortgage very well and I'm looking forward to doing more business with Marcus and Jersey Mortgage in future endeavors.

 Thank you,

 Keisha J


 

 This was one of the most happiest birthdays I've in my life. This is because of the awesome work that you have done in our lives. You were very instrumental in ensuring that our purchase of our first home went smoothly and successful. So you get a huge thank you.

 

Again, thank you very much.

To all you folks at Jersey Mortgage, you very clearly put us at the top of your priority list the past two weeks and we know a ton of very hard work and time was involved in that. Thank you for making our situation such a focal point in your jobs and lives until the job was done. You've made us very happy!

 

     You definitely don't have easy jobs. You deal with people during some of the most stressful and panicked times of their lives, when they have a lot of money and deadlines on the line. We're sure you've seen some of the ugliest and most impatient sides of people. Nonetheless, you took care of us from the beginning all the way to the end and saw the job through. We just want you to know we really appreciate you and what you've all done for us. Thank you for doing whatever was necessary to get us into our new home.

 

Have a great weekend and thank you again :)

Best,

Rebecca S

Marcus, on behalf of my family, I wish to sincerely express our profound gratitude to you personally and to your organization,  JMC., Inc. for all that you have done in helping us to achieve our long term dream of becoming an home owner as a first time home buyer.

 

Please note that your role and support really helped us in such a significant way from the beginning to the very end that we have started with the Jersey Mortgage Company as our chosen mortgage company.

 

Your personally engagement in both counseling and guidance have also played a significant role and indeed helped us in making a profound choice that brings this dream into reality.

 

All these could not have been achieved without your support that you extended as a first time home buyer.

 

Specifically, your resources through articles and print out that you often sent to us via email as well as your from your website that I often visit for educational purposes have really guided  my wife and I to be well prepared for home buying.

 

Also your kindness and your support team kindness that includes one on one counseling and guidance that often come from you either through email and phone conversations are quite appreciated. 

 

Again, I can't forget the kindness of Ms. Denise Iamundo, the loan officer in charge of my loan application, as well as the closing officer, Ms. Johanna Trejos, their kindness and support can't be forgotten. 

 

Honestly, without your support and encouragement, we would not be where we are today as an home owner.

 

Thank you so much in believing in us and for your guidance and counseling for achieving this dream.

 

Again, thank you very much. 

 

God bless you and your great organization (JMC)

I appreciated you speaking with me and making me comfortable with their ability to purchase with the low down payment money.

My client, the was an absentee seller who did not want to accept their offer because of itin spite of me explaining all about FHA loans.

Knowing I spoke to you and you were very assured made me able to go back to them and tell them it would be a mistake not to accept their offer.

 

Thanks for your assistance and I will let my buyers agent know what a great job you did.

Dear Marcus,

Good day!  The days go by quickly, but the memory lingers on...of your motivational sales presentation along with Paull's inspiring words.  Thank you.  I have found over my past thirty+ years sales, that gratitude is one of the most important components of appreciation as well as repeat business.  Kindness and consideration go a long way.

I know you said "to ask" for referral business, but I want you to know I referred "your name and information" today to a lead by the name of Marlene.  Naturally, I had to submit a few other names to her, but if she calls you, you will at the least know I referred you.  I was very impressed by your enthusiasm and love for your work, Marcus, this is what gives us staying power in any kind of market.  When you enjoy your work, the people connection, and are knowledgable about your products, it is rewarding.

Take care and again, thanks for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
Rosanne
