Raving Fans

I am taking this time to share the experience my wife and I had with Matthew Dennison. I have been in law enforcement over thirty years, fourteen ans a supervisor. I have dealt with countless people in every walk of life regarding good and bad experiences. I believe I have developed a pretty good sense on evaluating and judging people. A personal and very good friend of mine referred Matthew to me for evaluating and possibly refinancing our existing home loan. Even though I trusted my friend, I was still somewhat reserved regarding what to expect from Matthew.
In April my wife Patti and I spoke with Matthew over the phone. I found Matt eagerly interested and easy to speak with. He sounded well versed in home financing, explaining things to me in a very understandable way. Matt was sure he would be able to help Patti and I, so a meeting was scheduled.

After just a few minutes, Patti and I found Matt to be the professional we were hoping for. He is energetic, funny, yet professional. This combination is complimentary and necessary due to the importance of financial burdens people face. If there was any stress in our lives regarding this matter, Matt immediately took it all away. The relief Patti and I experienced from Matt’s ability to work out a resolution was a blessing.

At the end of May, we officially refinanced our home through Matt, saving a considerable amount of income. The speed and results I experienced with Matt was outstanding. Not only do I want to publicly thank and commend Matt for this service, I will refer him to my friends without exception. I don’t give out compliments very often, but I think very highly of Matt both as a professional and a person.

Matt  D. Rocks! Seriously, a friend recommended Matt when I was looking to buy my first house. He proved to be the single most valuable resources in the entire process. When I had questions, he always had the time to answer them. He knows his stuff and has a huge amount of integrity.

~ John G, San Diego

My 5 star rating according to Yelp’s definition isn’t nearly high enough for the service I was provided by Matt.  From the very first email, phone call and office visit Matt and his staff were the most accommodating, professional, timely and responsive team I have worked with in this industry. I am not in the industry myself. I am a consumer and one that is highly introverted and private. Having gone through some personal challenges that impacted me financially I didn’t think I had options. I can’t say enough how impressed I was with Matt’s intuitiveness to deal with “me” and his business acumen that helped find a solution that worked for me and with little to no effort on my part. I am still simply amazed with the speed and accuracy in which we closed the deal that is setting me up to win in the future. Thank you Matt to you and your entire team.

My Husband and I recently purchased our first home, as first time buyers we knew next to nothing about purchasing a home and Matt Dennison came highly recommended to us via a work colleague of my husbands, we had spoken to a few lenders by this time and honestly left each conversation not knowing much more and not feeling any more at ease in this big purchase. So we called Matt and wow!!! Now here is a man who not only loves his job but cares about you getting the best deal he can give, he told us from day one that he wants the opportunity to earn our business and he would be available 24/7 for us. Man did he mean it!!! Matt empowered us with knowledge (he was a wealth of it!) He really was available 24/7, his patience and understanding was absolutely amazing, he really wanted us to feel comfortable in our purchase. We signed the final paperwork for our house this passed Friday and the lady actually commented on how may credits Matt gave us (alot) her exact words were “wow your lender must really like you guys” – basically meaning Matt gave us way more credits than most would. He truly made our home buying experience wonderful, he alleviated so much stress and worry and we truly have complete and utter trust in this man! I know I could actually write alot more about this man but I will just say this – If  you want someone who will look out for your best interests, who is knowledgeable about his trade, someone who works 24/7 and is always available, someone with integrity and who will earn your trust then Matt Dennison is your man!!

We were referred to Matt Dennison about three years ago when our friends used him to obtain their first mortgage and we were looking to refinance.  After meeting him and seeing how knowledgeable and professional he was, I knew why they highly recommended him as a mortgage broker.  The thought of refinancing was a daunting one for my husband and I until we meet with him.  He explained the whole process very thoroughly and gave us multiple options.  He was the first mortgage broker to explain things in detail and walk us through the entire process.  The experience was very professional and not painful at all, as we had initially thought it would be.  The best part was the amount of money he was able to save us and by locking us into a low interest rate.  I have since referred him business and have always gotten positive feedback about their experiences as well.  I would highly recommend him to my friends and family or anyone looking for a mortgage lender.

Matt Dennison did a re-fi with my parents recently and was highly recommended. Our loan was fairly complicated and Matt was the perfect person to make it happen. He really seems like he loves what he’s doing. He always went to great lengths to make us comfortable throughout the loan process. He answered calls late in the day! We will recommend as well.

I too am a first time home buyer and don’t know what I would have done without Matt Dennison. Matt came highly recommended through friends and did not dissapoint. I had a lot of very nieve questions and was very apprehensive and Matt was extremely patient with me and went over and over all of the details until I felt secure. He was with me through the very end of closing and beyond, which is much more than I can say for my agent who was terrible. Upon the purchase of my home I found that there were issues not disclosed and Matt was very supportive through the resolution of them. I would recommend Matt highly and will be using him again in the future when my situation changes. Thank you Matt!!!
~ Sydney L., Oceanside

I am thankful I found Matt. He really is amazing. He’d replied almost instantly to a query I submitted online. From the start, Matt was eager to win my business, taking my budget, goals and concerns to heart. He immediately responded to my endless and maybe silly requests ( being a first time home buyer ), getting me pre-approved in less than 24 hours(my previous broker had stopped responding to me via email and had taken 2 months and still failed to get me a pre-app). He explained the industry jargon, how the mortgage financial structure works , each step in the mortgage process, and proactively helped me to prepare all the necessary documentation for a quick and painless closing. I had an FHA loan, which had an annoyingly negative connotation in the eyes of my agent, however, Matt processed this without ANY hitches in a smidge under 3 weeks. It just goes to show that if you have someone who actually *cares* you *can* get your loan processed, FHA or not, quickly and without issue. Matt also took calls late at night, gave me accurate and thorough insight going over and above what I expected. He got me the lowest interest rate around and an additional credit on closing costs. I will certainly be recommending him to all my friends and family … Too bad he is in San Diego or he’d be invited to the housewarming!”

“Matt helped us with the purchase of our first home almost 3 years ago, and our refi a year later when rates dropped again. I can not recommend this man enough. We were not in the best living situation as we were trying to save money for our deposit. That meant at an already emotional time I was even more of a wreck. Matt gives his cell number and always takes calls, he always calls right back, he is so knowledgable, easy to work with and makes the process so understandable. I asked Matt to be at the signing of my docs and he was. My real estate agent (also freaking awesome) Ashley Bedard loved him as well. Seriously, even if you are just thinking about buying something Matt can tell you what to do to make it easier at the right time. CALL HIM, HE IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!”
~ Katee Finks

“Matt is a professional who understands rule #1: meeting the customer’s needs. Six years ago, Matt met my needs by helping me secure the lowest rate possible at the time on my mortgage loan, and did so with grace and care. Business – particularly the financial/banking industry – needs more honest professionals like Matt.”
~ Alex Alleman

“Matt wasn’t just interested in closing a deal, but also making sure I got the right loan for my situation. He responded to every email, call and text in minutes and closed my deal in less than 3 weeks. He called me several times late in the evening to give me updates so I wasn’t left wondering what was going on. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone I know or anyone needing a mortgage. Thanks Matt!”
~ Mike McGirk

“Just wanted to thank you for everything to make this refinancing happen. I’m so glad we can save more money every month. I can now use the extra money to pay off the other loans. I will definitely make referrals to you. Again, thank you for making everything go soooo smoothly!”
~ Helen Granada

“My husband and I enjoyed working with Matt in purchasing our new home. For the most part financing is a foreign language to us, but Matt explained everything so it was easily understood and walked us through the experience expertly. Matt was so efficient and easy to work with, we highly recommend working with him.”

~ Laurie Hanslik

“I have enjoyed working with you. Having done a number of loans, I have found you to be straightforward and attentive to details. Also you were very good on communications, which I appreciate.”

~  Jeff Bozanic

“As my wife and I currently own several properties, I have had the opportunity to work with Matt on both new home purchases as well as multiple (up to about 5 now) re-finance loans. I have always had a great experience with Matt and I have recommended him to friends and colleagues that have also purchased a new home using Matt. His follow through is fantastic, his pricing is always extremely competitve and he is extremely creative helping us get to our goals. I will continue to work with Matt into the future and I highly recommend you do the same. You won’t regret it.”

~ Mike Matthews

“I worked with Matt on a home purchase. Matt was the second lender as the first suggested I cancel the purchase. Matt was able to talk to the sellers and work out a deal. My loan was very complicated and there certainly was some trying times, but in the end Matt came through for me and I closed on the house. Matt is just an awesome guys whose is very knowledgeable and hard working. He’ll do whatever is necessary to close the deal. I highly recommend him.”
~ Mark Felipe

“I know you went the extra mile on this. Thank you for your help. I will definitely pass your name on to anybody in need of a lender.”
~ David Randolph

“Hi Matt, You guys did a great job, and I’m very pleased. Thanks for all your help and I will definitely pass your information on to my friends and coworkers. I’m more than happy how this entire process transpired.”
~ Joe DeMarco

“Hi Laurie, I wanted to share an awesome lender with you. Matt is truly amazing at what he does and gets the job done! Contact him if you have any questions or know anyone else that could use his service… Matt, I am sincere in what I say, you are so deserving because you are of quality, and rare. You helped me when no one else could, and now I am finally secure with my home loan… I will most certainly keep the referrals pouring in to help you continue to succeed.  The world needs more good people like you who truly do care to help others.  The very best to you always!”
~ Ator Tamras

“I want to say that you both have performed admirably in assisting Jaime and I in finding our first home together. I realize that given my line of work, I set a high bar regarding expectations for services being performed for me or on behalf, and both of you were outstanding. You have certainly earned repeat business from Jaime and I when we sell (eventually J) and all the referrals that we can send your guys’ way.  Your efforts are sincerely appreciated. Thank you.”
~ Bill Fleury

“You Rock! Thanks for everything you have done for me on the Reddinger purchase. We have our final walk through tonight. Great Job!”
~ Amber Tannehill – Keller Williams Realty, (CalBRE # 01203895)

“Thanks again for everything! Steve and I appreciated you being available whenever there were questions or concerns. Please send me some business cards when you think about it. I will send to friends and colleagues when we discuss buying or refinancing. God Bless and we hope this is a great year for you.”
~ Carol and Steve Polizzi

“Matt, With our experiences in the beginning of our house hunting journey, it was definitely a breath of fresh air to end up working with you. Thank you for turning an experience I had learned to dread, into a semi-enjoyable one. I totally appreciate your military-like timeliness and willingness to answer questions / get the job done even if it was after normal business hours. I can assure you that, if given the chance, we will recommend you to our friends and colleagues looking to purchase homes in the future. If you feel like seeing the fruit of your efforts, it would be our pleasure to have you stop by and see the new house at your leisure. I believe I speak for both Sheena and I when I say thank you for all of your efforts in making this as seamless a process as possible.”
~ LT Kristopher M. Bodenhafer, United States Navy

“Matt, We couldn’t be happier.  You were professional, very informative, and just a nice guy to work with. Ari gave us an excellent referral. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends. Thanks for all your expertise. Also, thanks for explaining everything to Jeff, being that this was his first exposure to purchasing a house. I think he was surprised how much went into making it work.”
~ John, Joy & Jeff Fetherlin

“Thanks for handling everything Matt. It was a pleasure working with you and I will gladly recommend you and your firm. Thanks Again.”
~ Ted Mihalopoulos

“Hi Matt, I just wanted to reach out and thank you for a speedy transaction. My experience will keep me coming back as well as referring you to others. I hope to meet you in person someday. Take care, I’ll talk to you soon.  Thanks!”
~ Steve Isenhower

“Matt, This is my third home purchase, and it was by far the best and easiest experience I’ve had! You were totally on top of things, and communicated to us regularly throughout the transaction so we always knew what was happening. Thank you!”
~ Julianne Pantehis

“Matt, thank you is just inadequate.  We really appreciate everything you have done.  In a word, Heroic!”
~ Maureen Armentrout

“Matt, I am impressed! Thank you so much on behalf of my clients and myself.  I never would have believed it had I not seen it for myself, a 14 day closing on a purchase.  Needless to say I will be in touch in the future.”
~ Kay Church – Tarbell Realtors (CA BRE # 01168514)
“I just wanted to tell you what a great employee you have with Matthew Dennison, who finalized our home loan July 27th. Not only was he very professional in all our interactions, time and again he patiently explained the process and then helped us gather the needed information to keep things moving forward.  Thanks to his timely efforts, we avoided $3k+ of temporary storage fees for our belongings moving from Washington state to Temecula, CA.  On top of all that, we feel he got us a very good interest rate on our loan.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Matthew to our friends needing a great mortgage professional.”
~ Timothy Macy

“Matt, you were amazing; you truly did a great job.  Please send me some of your business cards.  I would love to do business with you again.”

-Vikki Varnals – Realty Executives (CalBRE # 01293656)

“We hired Matt to obtain a loan for the purchase of our first house, he was recommended by our real estate agent. We spoke to 3 brokers and 3 banks and after our initial meeting with Matt there was no question who we would choose. Matt goes above and beyond, he explained everything so clearly. There were no surprises, the loan was completed ahead of time and it was so easy, no stress.
I highly, highly recommend Matt; He is smart, very personable and knows what he is doing.”

-Kate Roberts

“Matt, I will continue to work with you and recommend you to my clients, because I know I can relax when you’ve got the deal.  I know if my clients are working with you, their loan will close the right way, quickly, and with your personal service.”

-Mark Larson, Cityscape Real Estate (CalBRE # 01840082)

“I would highly recommend you give Matt Dennison a call. Matt is the most solid loan professional I have ever worked with. Even if you have started with another lender, it’s definitely worth a call to Matt to compare, or just for a second opinion. I trust him completely.”

-Frank Palumbo, Lyons Realty (CalBRE #01807238)

“Matt, thanks for sitting in on the signing last night.  I appreciated your time and it was very helpful for me that you were there to answer my questions.  As a matter of fact, throughout the process thus far, you have been very easy to deal with, and always professional.  You bring a positive attitude to your work and it is nice to see that hard workers are still out there.”

-John Burkett

“Dear Matt, Thank you so much for all your hard work on the loans at both Midland and Sumner.  I truly appreciate your great level of communication, customer service, and speed.  I look forward to working with you on many more transactions.”

-Ashley Bedard, Ashley Dawn Realty (CalBRE# 01923150)

“Matt, you are a lifesaver! Thanks to your help with our refinance I can finally relax a little. I would recommend you to anyone!” Thank you!”

-Robert Farrell

“Matt, you have the ability to explain things so that they are so clear and easy to understand. (Things that I would normally find complicated because I don’t work in the mortgage business).  No one else we spoke with was able to do that like you. Thank you for always keeping us informed and getting back to us quickly when we had questions. We have already recommended you to friends and co-workers, and we’ll continue to tell everyone we know about our experience.”

-Arthur Baldwin

“I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your service.  Our first mortgage loan took over 6 weeks with the same information, so when my husband wanted to refinance our home I had visions of that all over again.  I also appreciated the quick responses to our calls and e-mails, it was very reassuring. Thank you so much.”
