Maureen helped us close in record time even with repair negotiations. She was super on top of everything. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience with an always stressful process of buying a home. 1000% recommend Maureen. She sticks to her word and won’t promise anything she can’t deliver on.
If you are looking for a review to help you decide if you should use Maureen, this is it. She’s up front and “kept it real” with me. I had shopped around for the best rate for my refi and lenders quotes were all over the board and I couldn’t make sense of it. I called her to see what she could do and not only did she have expert knowledge of the market, she offered excellent advice on how to navigate it to my benefit. No one else did that. She was patient and explained how things worked so I understood what decisions I was making. I prefer to work with someone who will tell me like it is instead of what they think I want to hear. I saw first hand how some brokers don’t care, you’re just another client to them. But she advocated for me as if she were me and that is invaluable and rare. I can’t thank her enough for her insight, experience and support during the process. I’m so glad I called her.
Maureen is more than a mortgage broker, she's a helpful person who really wants to do what she can to make the process go smoothly. She is super knowledgeable about the mortgage business, real estate, financial trends and seemingly everything that is remotely related to mortgages. This made me very comfortable with the process and helped us greatly to coordinate the escrow people and the real estate people, and all the documents and information needed. If you get in touch with Maureen, she will start helping you before you even know what you need.
An amazing person to work with. Plans ahead for any hiccups in the process and is very organized. Definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or refi a home!
We've bought 4 homes so far and Maureen has been the BEST lender we've worked with! She has outstanding communication and you can tell she is dedicated to her work. She was prompt, easily accessible and always willing to answer any questions we had. She was also ready to fund us for an earlier closing! If you're looking for a lender, SHE'S THE ONE!!
My experience working with Maureen starts off with a story of a lifetime. I am cofounder and president of a local nonprofit animal sanctuary, and towards the start of 2023 I found myself in one of the most challenging situations of my life. My husband and I had made the difficult decision to separate, and if the animals and I were going to stay at the property in Ramona, CA I would need to qualify for my own loan and refinance the house.This is where Maureen comes in. From the beginning, I knew I was in good hands. I had diligently searched for a good lender who could give me a good rate that would allow me to afford the house, and Maureen beat the competition. Not only that, but she was pivotal in pursuing an opportunity to lock-in on a good rate one evening when rates had momentarily dropped (rates went back up the very next day, so I was very lucky to have had a responsive and determined lender like Maureen!). Maureen never rushed me, encouraged me to do whatever was best for my unique situation, and was extremely patient with all of my questions. Perhaps above all, Maureen was kind, thorough, and a great listener throughout the entire process. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the phone call with her while I was driving one of our sheep home from the vet, midway through the process of securing my loan. I felt a little embarrassed that I had to speak loudly over a very opinionated sheep in the car, but that didn’t seem to phase Maureen. It only fueled her desire to help.Committing to a new loan is a big deal and can be stressful, especially with the future forever home of an animal sanctuary at stake. I’m beyond thrilled and relieved to report that my loan officially funded yesterday, and I could not have had a better lender on my side. 10/10 recommend Maureen for your future loan needs. She might just rescue you (and your animals)!
If we could give more stars we would! We have had the pleasure of working with Maureen Martin multiple times in the past 10 years, not only for personal transactions, but we also refer her to our clients and close family because she is simply amazing. She is a true professional, her work ethic is outstanding and we could not be happier to work with her and her team. As a Professional Realtor myself, I can say that Maureen Martin is the best in the industry, I have worked with may Lenders, none like Maureen and the team she has built. When working with her as my lender, I know the transaction will go smooth because she is on top of her game, and her team is as efficient as her. Thank you Maureen for always being there to help us with personal transactions and also my clients, we really appreciate you!!! We look forward to working with you again soon 🙂
I honestly have nothing but sunshine and rainbows for Maureen. She is highly detail oriented and efficient, which is truly a necessity in her industry. But beyond that, she’s also a genuinely nice person that I really enjoyed working with. I’ll definitely be referring any friends and family entering in the house hunt. Thank you again Maureen, you’re awesome! 🙂
Maureen Martin is a complete pleasure to work with and we're so glad to have found her through excellent YELP reviews!She came in and saved the day on a tricky loan that was starting to go south with a different lender.I can't express our gratitude for Maureen's communication, professionalism, encouragement, and her work ethic. We were able to buy our forever home because she cared enough to help us with a difficult situation. Highly recommend Maureen Martin for your lending and mortgage needs!!
Maureen is amazing to work with! She was able to do so much for me which helped me put in the winning offer for my home. I also happened to be starting a new job and had a number of other crazy personal things to deal with during this process, but she was so great about keeping everything organized and on track. I never had to stress about missing a step. She made the entire process so easy, but also fun! It could have been a very awful situation with a different person.
My loan approval/closing experience with Maureen and her firm turned out to be a very good experience. It was challenging due to fluctuating rates/markets but in the end the mortgage rate outcome and the quick closing met my expectations. She accomplished what she indicated would be possible.She's earned a repeat customer. I plan to work with her on future mortgages.
I’m a first time home owner and put down money on a home on 5/25, and got my keys on 6/10. According to the seller’s agent, this is the fastest that she’s ever seen a home purchase complete in recent years . You want to know my secret? Getting synced up with my mortgage broker, Maureen Martin, ahead of time :)This lady is. the. bomb. She manages all client-facing communications on her own, and is always super duper responsive. From previous experiences, this is one of the most important aspects of having a mortgage lender early - to get educated, to get your questions answered, to lay down all the ground work so when it comes time to rumble… you’re ready to rumble.And thanks to Maureen, we were!Our working process was - I had 1 consultation session with her, completed the application with some help, and voila - we were pre-approved! Once we are pre-approved, I was able to procure loan pre-approval letters with ease (either through Maureen herself or through a template that she issues), and placed offers broadly. Once we offered on a home and were selected, she and her underwriting team were able to Quickly guide me through the required documentations (she'll send me a document, and we'll have a quick call going through it) and lock down a competitive rate. It was wonderful always having Maureen in my back pocket on speed dial during this time because buying houses = so much paperwork.I am super grateful to have met such a resourceful, dynamic, professional. I love that she is always “on top of it” and got us through the home buying purchase with ease. Highly recommend for anyone looking to maneuver this difficult real estate market and want to bring the big guns.Cheers!TL: DR - All these 5 star reviews don’t lie, get her!
Maureen was recommended by Melissa Tucci (realtor/broker). I found Maureen to be very competent as well as very kind and easy to do business with. I would recommend Maureen (and Melissa) to anyone looking for residential properties and loans. They both earn 5 stars on a 5-star scale in my book.Tod SnodgrassSan Diego, CA
I worked with the Maureen Martin team on the purchase of my first home and also an investment property. The level of care, attention to detail, and professionalism demonstrated by Maureen Martin and her team far surpassed my expectations. I really appreciated Maureen Martin’s honesty and transparency throughout the mortgage process. Her team stays on top of every detail and is there for you every step of the way to answer any questions and address any concerns. I highly recommend Maureen Matin.
Look no further for your financing needs. I reached out to Maureen after my husband grew frustrated with a broker he was working with. Maureen was incredibly responsive, professional and skilled. We refinanced three properties in no time, thanks to her. Maureen is very highly recommended!! Thank you Maureen!
DO YOURSELF RIGHT! GO SEE MAUREEN.Let me start off with saying Thank you.I started with a seperate company and who was unresponsive and veered off of the original quote,BY ALOT.If it wasnt for the reviews on this page i would'nt have saved tens of thousands of dollars so thank maureen ur the best.
Maureen was the absolute best when we bought our first home in 2019. We were starting a family and had shopped with other lenders, but Maureen was the most responsive and gave us the best rate! Being that it was our first home, we had a lot of basic questions and she was able to answer them all and provide guidance with the budget we had. She was unbelievable throughout the whole process and I cannot thank her and her team enough. She even gave us a beautiful welcome mat once we were all settled in. Don't hesitate, call Maureen for if you need a home or to re-fi. She's the best!!
Maureen was absolutely fantastic through my refinance process, top notch customer service with her communication and follow through. She made the process easy and calmed my nerves when needed with her outgoing positive personality. She got me better interest rate than anticipated it was such a JOY to work with her.
Maureen is the best! When my pre-approval seemed hopeless, Maureen found a way to get me exactly what I needed, with a better interest rate than anyone else! Like, much better than anyone else. She was also clearly communicative, promptly responsive, and always enthusiastic through the arduous escrow process. If Maureen can't do it, then no one can...Thanks Maureen!
Maureen was AMAZING. If you are coming from out of state like I was let me tell you the real estate industry here is a shark tank. I did VA funding on a flipped duplex in Oceanside and just about every curveball possible was thrown at us. Maureen stayed strong though out and was honestly the glue that kept all party’s focused and got us through the escrow process. She was not only great at her job but made sure I was comfortable and had all questions answered during the loan process. I also talked with 3 other brokers before finding her, she is by far the best. Thanks Maureen!
Maureen Martin and her team are the best lenders out there by far! She is the most organized, communicative, professional, and friendly lender we have ever worked with. We felt like our financial and personal information were well protected and secure. We asked at least three times to move our closing date up and she obliged with seamless effort. You will never find a better lender and team to work with than Maureen!!
Maureen is the BEST!! She was so fun and easy to work with. Very knowledgeable and explained everything to me so that I could understand. If I ever had any questions, she was very quick to respond. The best part… she was able to get me a great rate!! If you need a mortgage loan, I highly recommend working with Maureen. I will be recommending her to all of my friends and family. Thank you Maureen!!
Maureen is amazing! We received an excellent loan rate and she was most efficient .(Our realtor said that we could not get an appraisal for nine weeks and Maureen secured one in two weeks! ) She responded quickly to any text or call. We would HIGHLY recommend her!
Extremely organized, efficient, responsive and helpful! Could not have asked for better service!
I cannot say enough about how incredible Maureen was through the whole process of buying my first home. She is super smart and knowledgeable, and she was always available to answer my million questions and soothe my anxiety about the process. I got excellent loan terms and she was able to get the process completed in record time -- I was able to do a 21-day escrow, which I think really helped my offer to stand out in this intense market. This whole thing would have been so much harder without Maureen holding my hand every step of the way! She's amazing!
Maureen was such a pleasure to work with! She is fast, efficient and helped us close our home loan in record time. I would use her over and over again, and I recommend her to anyone looking for a stellar broker.
She has been a rock star while refinancing! My original bank that I bought my condo with was dragging their feet, so I asked one of my friends from the area if she knew someone. We got my loan funded and all of our papers signed and notarized at lightning speed. Her professionalism, attitude and drive have been a breath of fresh air after my experience with the bank. And best of all, she got me a better rate!
Maureen is exceptional! As a professional in the industry I work with a lot of lenders and bankers and Maureen takes 5-star customer service to the next level! Her knowledge surpasses all of her competition and her ability lies in not only get the best pricing and terms for her clients but in a record speed time. She can have a clear to close in under 8 days which is absolutely unheard of in this marketplace. She also listens to clients needs and presents all viable options and solutions! If you are looking for a true professional, a true master of their craft, you do not need to look any further than Maureen. She goes above and beyond for her clients and exceeds all expectations! Thank you again Maureen for being the absolute stellar professional you are!
