Testimonials

I would like to thank Grace Mitnick of Compass Real Estate for always thinking of me for her clients' and friends' banking needs. Grace recently referred me a former colleague of hers who recently moved to England and is looking for a banking relationship in the U.S. that will make transferring between US and UK simple. We have the perfect International Banking solution and are working with them remotely to get their accounts set up. THANK YOU Grace!

Les provides that personal touch to his business and his clients and has the ability to offer many solutions to those who are in need of causality insurance and I know this as a fact, because I referred one of my reverse loan clients to him that needed homeowners insurance. He took the time and made the effort to meet with her in her home and I think due to this effort to meet her personally, it set him apart from competitors and she purchased her policy through him. And the bonus for Les, is that my client's sister also purchased insurance with him as well.

I cannot say enough positive things about Mike Monteleone with RE/MAX Olson, and his commitment to professionalism and patience with one of my reverse loan clients who I referred him to help her List and sell her home in Redondo Beach, and then purchase a new property where I would represent her in the transaction, using funds from a reverse loan. She did make things a bit difficult for each of us and moving things forward to a successful close, but Mike was extraordinarily patient with her and helped her in so many ways that would take too long to describe here. He is amazing and I cannot ever recall working with a Realtor of his caliber and expertise. He's experienced, kind and knows how to navigate purchase transactions and is always available to help with the loan process and in conclusion, we closed and funded my new purchase after some "drama" and she is very happy.

I thank Steve Fenster for his quick and effective handling of a client I referred to him. Client was making a private loan and needed documentation and security. Steve provided that and supervised the escrow. Good job, Steve!

I want to say Thank You to Ken Polowitz for referring me a large Commercial Buyer. I am grateful that Ken has a sense of confidence in me and trusted me as a referral to a client he has been working with for over 25 years. He gave us a formal face-to-face introduction and made a point to be there for it. He went out of his way to give his support and that has made a positive impact on my business. Ken also serves as an ongoing source of information regarding Cost Segregation and the cutting edge resources within that industry. He has been able to share his knowledge of new Tax Advantages, Legal Updates and Strategies for Commercial Investors to source money from within and use what they already have as leverage. There are not so many professionals who are going the lengths that Ken is, to keep evolving and learning about their industry. I will continue to lean on Ken for his guidance in Commercial Real Estate. Thank you Ken for your support.

Special thank you to Jeff Lerman for not only being our San Francisco Moderator, but for always following up and providing support. I asked for legal guidance on how to approach a large Hotel deal in San Francisco and Jeff offered to review the contracts right away. He advised that it was better to put in place the right documents before proceeding and that the current contracts were not secure. He gave us options and a sense of security which made a huge difference for my team and my client. Thank you Jeff.

I am thanking Eric Shaw for his leadership. I have watched and learned from him. He has been a huge influence for me. When I was new to the Network, Eric reached out to me and made sure I knew I could reach him directly and call on him for anything I needed. Without Eric, I would not have this opportunity to connect with serious, motivated professionals across the entire state. I am part of the San Francisco Group and I have also enjoyed the benefit of attending many of the Southern California groups. Eric makes a point to be at most, if not ALL, of the All Cities network meetings which is incredible. We are very lucky to have him as our Founder. He is a generous person and someone I trust. Thank you Eric, for all that you do!
