Yael was amazing! She provided solutions to all obstacles that presented themselves. Yael and her team had prompt responses to all questions and concerns. They did everything within their power to close on my timeline. My sellers gave me a very short timeline to close and Yael and her team got me cleared to close earlier than the seller expected...so much so that THEY needed more time to vacate. I would recommend her to anyone that wants a mortgage!!! She's the BEST!!!

Yael comes highly recommended. My first home closed at the end of August 2019. I must say it was hectic but Yael and her team helped me find a loan even when I was told that I couldn't. Today, I am happy I finally have my own home. You can reach Yael almost anytime if not she will reply via text or a call. My home is in New Jersey and someone told me I should use someone in NJ because Yael is from NY and might not know how to help me but that person was wrong she was wrong.

Yael was on top of our case handling it, watching it, and directing her team to ensure we got the best service. Her team was very helpful and kept us up to date, literally by the minute when anything needed to be taken care of. They helped guide us through a smooth process. There were no surprises and everything was very well organized and explained. I highly recommend using Yael and her team for your next transaction.
