Testimonials for Lee H. Schaffer, CMPS, CMHS
I was introducted to Lee through my Realtor so I kinda figured I would get good service. What I didn't expect and received, was phenomenal, personalized, service. Lee treated me like family. When I called, he picked up, there was never a time I got his voicemail. He walked me through the process and made sure I understood everything. He listened to and responded to all of my questions.
On the day of the closing, there was a bit of a snowstorm and Lee drove all the way out just to be a part of the process and to drop off a very good bottle of wine.
I absolutely recommend Lee if you are looking for someone who is truly going to be looking out for you and helping you through the process. You are not just a "number" to Lee. Trust him, and you will have an easy process. Thank you Lee, for everything. I love my new house. You, Mara, and Andy are my dream team and when I look for any other properties, I know who to call.
Lee was one of the first lenders that we contacted about obtaining a mortgage for our home. He was very knowledgeable, patient and thoughtful about explaining the mortgage process to us. I highly recommend him for both first-time and seasoned home buyers for two main reasons: price and service. On the first point, I shopped around a lot, and no other lender (including the 'private client' groups at large banks like WF and Citi) could match Lee's pricing nor his ability to creatively structure the mortgage payments to fit my individual needs.
In addition, Lee's service was as good as he promised. When we decided to jump on a home that we liked, Lee was always available to send a pre-approval letter or answer any questions that I had (and there were a lot of questions). Once we were set to close, Lee's team efficiently put together our application without any of the annoying and stressful delays/inattentiveness that you hear about with respect to the mortgage process. In short, Lee is highly recommended.
Lee is the best loan officer you could get from the market. He's not only very responsive, but also provides lots of knowledge that would help customers like me to make the best decisions. He provides end-to-end service, which makes the whole transaction so smoothly that you would feel it so easy to ride through. The fee disclosure is clear and accurate, and again you can always ask for clarifications if need to. I've been getting Lee's help on refis and purchase loans since 2011. Saved a bundle and am very happy to continue my relationship with him. I would recommend him 100%, whole-heartedly, to whoever is interested in getting their next loan.
I cannot say enough good things about working with Lee Schaffer. He made the whole mortgage process so easy. He returned phone calls, he answered all of my questions. Lee Schaffer is very honest and trustworthy. I will definitely call on him again if I need a mortgage or to refinance.
This is my first home buying experience and I hit some rough spot with banks, for a while I thought it was a no go, but thanks to Lee Schaffer, he made it happen...
Lee helped us with our first home mortgage and was invaluable. We faced a difficult close and Lee was always on top of things, advising us at every turn and keeping the whole process moving. We found him to be trustworthy, honest, and friendly—so much so that we had him handle our refinance. And again, his knowledge and service were invaluable. I recommend Lee to everyone.
