"Alex and his team are phenomenal. They made the process very easy and I love that his approach is very educational. He really tries to make sure you understand what is happening. "
Buying - Suitland, Maryland January 2018
"My family and I moved back to the US from working abroad for a significant time period and were in contact with Alex for about 6 months before we arrived. He provided great, timely, and clear information and no question was too basic for him. He was very committed to helping us understand a highly nuanced process and gave great strategic advice on how to approach a mortgage. We hit a financial snag delaying our home search but when we were ready to get started again Alex was as supportive as he had always been guiding through the pre-approval process. When it was time to put down an offer Alex and his team were amazingly responsive and I believe their efforts contributed to us winning a bidding war on a property we fell in love with. I especially appreciate his willingness to run different financial models and to provide online resources to better explain the complicated aspects. Alex and his team were wonderful and we have already been strongly recommending them to friends."

"I had the pleasure of being introduced to Alex by my agent. Of the several loan officers I worked while pursuing preapproval, Alex was the most responsive, timely, organized, and thorough. I was a first-time homebuyer, and I wanted a loan officer who was patient enough to walk me through the process. Alex and his team were in constant communication with me either via email or phone and sent clear summaries of our conversations and next steps. Never once did I feel out of the loop or disorganized. Thank you, Alex!"

He didn't make me feel like I was wasting his time with questions. He also helped me to find a mortgage that was a good fit for my situation. I would work with him again and recommend him to others.

"Alex is very responsive, knowledgable, and courteous. It was a very professional experience."
Buying - Wheaton, Maryland December 2018
"Very personable and communicative. My one issue was the misinformation I received from Alex regarding final payment. The title company told me they required final payment by wire and Alex had told me final payment could be done by cashier's check. This created headaches immediately before, during, and after closing. Aside from this, Alex and his team was considerate, walked me through the process, and gave me ample time and instruction on completing tasks. I would recommend Alex and his team to others but would counsel the team to communicate better with the Title company to help closing be less stressful."

From the first meeting, we knew that we didn't need to research additional mortgage brokers as Alex displayed knowledge, confidence, and personality; three characteristics important to us as we pursued buying our first home.
