"Very helpful team, great experience! "
Buying - Severna Park, Maryland June 2018
"This was a more challenging mortgage because it was sale by owner, so no RE agents were involved to buffer the finance back end process. And the seller was out of state. Mr Taylor put together an awesome team of finance and title company all of whom worked through each challenge with positivity and professionalism. Interestingly the ratifying of the contract took the longest because of the seller's schedule and distance, but in the end we still settled on the original date planned. I'm very happy with Mike's performance and the performance of the whole team! And I'll be calling on him again in the future."

Buying - Baltimore, Maryland April 2019
"Mike was amazing in every aspect, from our first meeting with him. He listened to what we had to say and where we want to be - monthly payment wise. He went above and beyond to explain everything, he was always patient and promised us he will do his best to please us, and he delivered! He was always very responsive and we really feel he cares, he worked hard and it greatly shows. We will definitely recommend him to basically everyone that will need a mortgage or even just an advice, we already have gave his info to the builder. We will always be grateful for his work and support and will definitely use him in the future. "
Buying - North Beach, Maryland April 2019
"Working with Mike was great, unfortunately it was not the same experience with the rest of the staff. Several times we were asked to sign things online only to find our passwords did not work. Instead of addressing the error we had to print, sign and scan. I questioned the password and received a snarky answer with my social security numbers. It's a stressful time to work with someone you aren't comfortable with just adds to that. In addition to this day we have not received any correspondence from the mortgage company. We paid the mortgage using the coupons given to us in our settlement packet. It would have been nice to have some follow up to ensure things were on track. Sadly it's the worst mortgage experience we have had. We have traditionally used credit unions and I think we have learned a valuable lesson. In hindsight probably should have reached out to Mike the minute we had issues but not sure what would have made a difference. We are more than happy to provide additional information if asked but honestly just trying to move on. "

"I was working with another lender and kept getting delays and was stressed out. I called Michael Taylor and I ended up having him do my loan which took only a few weeks and there were no delays. Settlement went as planned and once I made the switch it was a simple process. He was wonderful and I appreciate the way he made me understand the process and did not make me feel like being self employed somehow is why I was being treated differently like the other company did. I'm extremely happy to be a homeowner. "

"I refinance my house back in 2011 using First Home and working with Mike Taylor. This is the reason I came back to Mike again in 2021 to refinance. This particular refinance was more complicated than any I've ever executed. Mike was extremely helpful and very patient. I'm not a financial person, so I had a lot of questions, but Mike helped me through every step of the process. Even with last-minute changes, we settled the loan on time and on budget. My strongest possible endorsement - if I had to refinance a home tomorrow, I'd call Mike Taylor."
