    When I started the process of purchasing a home I tried getting a loan through one of the big banks. Even though my credit is excellent, they denied me a few programs that would've made the purchase of my first home much simpler and cheaper. They were also charging an extremely high amount in closing cost and were demanding a ridiculous amount of documents . After speaking with my brother, he highly recommended Lisa and her team. All it took was one call and I was convinced. They are truly the absolute best. Through Lisa and her team, I was able to pay thousands less in closing costs and was given incentives that the big bank refused to provide. Lisa's team asked for a fraction of the documents and made the entire process much more faster and simpler. I am actually buying my brother a huge gift for recommending Lisa and her team. Honestly, if I ever purchase another home, Lisa will be the first person I will call. I highly recommend her and her team. If you are planning on purchasing a home, your first call must be to Lisa. I promise you will not regret it.

    I had the pleasure of working with Lisa and her team recently and couldn't be happier. Every question and concern was answered with courtesy, accuracy and VERY quickly. I felt completely confident throughout the whole process and would absolutely recommend her and use her services again.

    Lisa and her team were great! They walked me through each step and kept me informed along the way. They were always available if I had a question even on weekends and evenings. They made the whole process so smooth. I would highly recommend them!!!!

    I have worked with Lisa in the past with my new mortgage and again just recently with my refinance. Lisa has great work ethic and she truly cares about helping people. She has gone over and beyond for me, when she could have just said, you know this is the best we can with this situation, and turned it around full circle. She has exceeded expectations and has gone the extra mile to help me with my mortgage. I am so grateful to have worked with someone so special, and someone who just doesn't throw in the towel and gives up. She does not take no for an answer, and will do whatever she can to help you through your mortgage whether it's a new mortgage or a refinance. She always pulls through. She's a great person and a pleasure to work with.

    Thank goodness for Lisa and her team. They turned the whole situation around for my daughter's first home purchase. They picked up the ball after another lender created a nightmare for her. They made her feel so much better about every step of the process and everyone was so helpful and communicated with her every step of the way. We just loved Jen and watching her continue to take care of things right up to the last moments of closing day made me so thankful someone sent us to Gateway. They saved the day.

    We planned to purchase a condo few months back and has very bad experience with another lender. Someone recommended Lisa's name. I was glad I decided to call her. I was worried about time and some other issues; Lisa was very caring and understood my situation and was able to help me to close our deal on time. Simply, Lisa is an amazing manager and her team works very effectively and diligently through out this process.

    It was a pleasure working with Lisa for my first home purchase. I was actually working with another lender who were charging me points and fees which I did not understand. When I came to know Lisa, she walked me through each and every process in details. She took those charges personally and explained to me all the loopholes. Her calm nature and sweet behavior puts you at ease immediately. I never felt like I was talking to a financial institution, I felt that as if she was my friend. Lisa and her team helped with my mortgage loan, understanding my financial condition worked on my level and my timeline. I was in a rush to purchase she made impossible happen and get the rate I wanted in the timeline desired. I am very grateful to her and her whole team. She listened to all my problems financial and personal and guided me in right direction. Home buying process for first time buyers can be very stressful, but she made the process smooth and calming. Lisa and Jennifer both worked with me on off hours, weekends through phone call or texts as I was in NYC for this whole time. I feel like I have made a friend on this journey and I would recommend her to any one buying a house or any financial needs. They are the absolute best.

    Where do I even begin? Lisa is a life saver, and intelligent expert, an incredible listener, an even better explainer, and the most kind soul EVER. Just having any interaction with her calmed me down and made me want to be a better person because she exudes positivity. My fiancé and I are first time home buyers and Lisa and her team went above and beyond to help us make this process as painless and seamless as possible. We were able to close on time and any hiccups or questions we had were dealt with immediately. Will always, always recommend her to every one I know.

    We loved working with Lisa and her team. From the bery beginning she was very thorough and friendly. She explained every step of the way to us and answered any questions that we had. Before we closed on our house, she even called us on a saturday night so we could go over the closing details. We are very greatful and happy with our experience with her. We would recommend her to anyone.
