Marlena went above and beyond to help us get a loan to buy our first home. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and you can really tell that she truly cares about her clients. She was very thorough in explaining the entire loan process to us and was always available to answer questions. She even met with us after hours and on weekends to work with our schedule. Marlena made us have an excellent experience and I will recommend her to everyone I know who is looking for a mortage. Thank you so much Marlena!
Working with Marlena was best decision my significant other and I made. Being first time home buyers we did not have a clue as to the process or documentation needed and thankfully we didn't need to. This extremely stressful process was made stress free. Marlena was there the entire process checking in letting us know what was happening next and what she needed from us. She made herself available whenever we had questions. I could not imagine working with anyone else. We were even able to close escrow early and get our keys that much quicker!
Marlena is an absolute gem! We go to her for every home purchase and refi! We know she will never steer us wrong. She truly cares for her clients; We can leave things in her hands knowing we are getting the best deal possible and if there are any hiccups she can always handle it. Loans are not always a straight forward thing and we have seen her go above and beyond to get the job done.10 years ago when I did my first loan with Marlena (at age 23) I hardly knew anything about the process and didn't know who to trust to take care of me. I was referred to Marlena who took the time to explain every single line on those crazy disclosing documents and I knew I was in good hands. A decade later we can pretty much complete a refi or purchase with Marlena without thinking about it. We send what she needs and we know she's got it under control. We are so glad we found her years ago. If you're thinking of going with Marlena do it. You're lucky you've found the best.
