I just did a refi with Community Lending of America. Jeremy Marks and his team are second to none. The refi process can a nerve racking experience, but not that way at CLA. It made it easy that the team was always available. I do not think I ever went a half hour at most to hear back from them on any request. I even ended up day before with a slightly lower rate. A great surprise!

Jeremy’s team really helped us out while we refinanced our mortgage. Whenever we had a question Community Lending of America was quick to respond. I highly recommend them the next time you decide refinance. Thanks again Jeremy for all your help.

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!
