Buying - Springfield, Massachusetts July 2018
"This was my first time purchasing a home. The house was listed as a fast sale. The process was long and tedious, Ken made sure everything was taken care of for me, including extending the approval which kept me locked in at a fine rate. Ken also checked in to see how I was doing and to provide feedback and encouragement. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such a caring and experienced mortgage broker. Ken has been like a brother to me! I couldn't have asked for more! So happy and so thrilled to have worked with Ken! I have and will continue to recommend Ken to anyone I know who is interested in purchasing a house! 5 stars!!! "

"Ken did a great job helping us get through the mortgage process. He was knowledgeable and friendly and responded quickly to every question we had."
Buying - West Springfield, Massachusetts November 2018
"There were many times where he came back to me asking for forms or information I had already sent him. Information was missing on the CD, so I had to sign it with credits missing because everything was happening so last minute. I received little to no updates, for example, I finally asked my realtor when my appraisal was scheduled for and she goes "oh, tomorrow". His delivery of information was unprofessional. When the lawyer was dragging on getting the title he called me and goes "So, you know your not closing on Friday right?/ Well it's not our fault, it's your lawyer's, I didn't want to work with him from the beginning". I understand wanting to make sure blame is put in the correct area, but that is certainly not what I want to hear as a buyer in this already stressful process. My experience with most of who I worked with in this purchase was unpleasant.. everyone recommended each other and I felt that everyone was working for the seller and I was bullied into everything. "
