Where do I begin? Bill has been amazing through this whole process…answering any and all questions, no matter how big or small, he was always quick to answer any questions we may have! He was available through call, text, email whatever was convenient for US! He sent out an email telling us from the get go what he would need to submit our loan. He was very professional….but never made us feel like just “another borrower” we felt like life long friends. Bill & his team did amazing! The biggest getting us to closing in just 4 VERY short weeks! He went well above and beyond for us and I’d highly recommend him to any family, friend, or stranger!Bill, thank you for all your hard work and dedication into getting us into our new home.

Bill was incredibly helpful in setting expectations and providing guidance through the entire process. Bill kept us informed in all phases and provided options throughout. I highly recommend Bill Baum and Community Lending of America.

Jeremy and his team are great folks. We started shopping for a refi before the COVID hit. Knowing we had some time before our current rate reset we told Jeremy what our parameters were and he kept an eye on rates for us. Ended up with 25bps lower rate than our parameters with no points! Fantastic! Jeremy and his team really bent over backwards for us and were wonderfully responsive through everything. We’d recommend to anyone. Thanks again!
