My wife and I are first time home buyers using my VA loan. Maureen encouraged us every step of the way, and went above and beyond in making sure we were able to purchase our home. We got pre-qualified and were able to offer a 21-day escrow to help get our offer accepted. We highly recommend Maureen. She was able to give us a frank, honest assessment about what we could afford, which helped us find the right home. Thank you, Maureen!!!read more

I recently worked with Maureen Martin as my mortgage broker for a home purchase in Northern California. I originally came across Maureen when I was living in San Diego through a mutual friend. I hadn't been a homeowner for over 13 years and Maureen helped guide me all the way as though it had been my first time. This was a years-long process as I came out of a $15K+ debt situation and saved for the down payment, but Maureen stuck by my side, offering financial advice and when it was finally time to pull the trigger when all the stars aligned, I had complete confidence in her. She is incredibly thorough and detail-oriented and found a fantastic rate on the loan. We went through several home offers before landing on "the one" and she was so patient in explaining everything to me, multiple times! Working with her hundreds of miles away (Norcal vs. Socal) was no issue at all. I cannot recommend her enough - she consistently went above and beyond to help me through and made it as easy as possible. Thank you Maureen!read more

I can't say enough about Maureen and her team! She is so amazing and wonderful to work with. We were in the process of buying a home while our daughter had surgery and Maureen was incredible through the entire process. She helped us know what we could afford and made herself available to answer any questions we had. She provided personalized pre-approval letters for every offer! She also goes above and beyond by calling listing agents to assure them your loan will go through! We bought with a VA loan and her understanding of the VA loan was so helpful! Maureen took care of us and helped us get our new Home! She is amazing!read more

I found Maureen on google while searching for brokers in the San Diego area. I loved her bio and something told me she was the perfect broker for my boyfriend. I encouraged him to call her but was a bit sacred and nervous being a first time buyer. He thought he wouldn’t qualify but Maureen made him feel so comfortable and walked him throughout the whole process. Needless to say he was approved and in less than a month and a half he received his keys and closed on his first home. I can’t say enough how awesome Maureen was and so professional. She is so detailed and knows her business well. Next home will definitely be calling her again. Thank you Maureen for making our dream come true! Rodrigo & Maryread more

We were introduced to Maureen when we moved last year. We were about to close escrow on the house we sold, and needed to expedite escrow and get a mortgage for the house we had just bought. She took charge of the situation and made it happen quickly and efficiently. She was extremely knowledgeable, highly professional and above all motivated to facilitate our needs. Friendly, very proficient and easy to talk to, she made the process understandable and effortless at a time when moving issues had our complete attention and were our highest priority. When interest rates recently dropped, we again turned to Maureen to refinance and she did not disappoint, doing her thing and looking out for our best interests. We had gone through the refinancing process several times in the past with others whom we trusted and felt good about. Our recent experiences with Maureen allowed us to reach an obvious conclusion - she's the best! Highly recommended!!!read more

5 stars all the way!! Working with Maureen has been amazing, She’s professional and incredibly responsive and does a fantastic job of explaining all of the ins and outs of mortgage financing options. My home buying process has been very lengthy, with several offers that have fallen through (in no part due to the mortgage terms) but Maureen has stuck with me through thick and thin. I trust her completely and highly recommend her services.read more
