After a disaster of an experience with a major internet-driven mortgage company, I called Lending Bankers and spoke with David, who was refreshingly knowledgeable. I decided to work with himDavid... was able to tell me what he thought they could do, what would be required, how long it would take, and he and Gabriel were highly professional and responsive throughout the process.In the end, they delivered on exactly what they said they would, we closed quickly, and secured a rate that was better than what I had been quoted elsewhere. David got me out of a bind and delivered a great result.I am grateful and can't thank them enough. I would highly recommend Lending Bankers to anyone who wants to work with people who are trustworthy and competent.read more
