“Jim has helped refinance my personal and investment homes for several years now. He is extraordinarily thorough and there are no surprises at closing. I have full confidence that I will get the best deal and that Jim is always on my side. He has saved me money and even pointed out errors in my tax return that resulted in me getting a bigger refund.”

“Jim rocks! He took a complicated process and made it easy. He told me what to expect and his experience helped guide me through the right spots. I highly recommend him. Being a first time home buyer is already scary enough, but Jim made it as easy as possible. If I had to choose Jim’s strongest quality, it would without a doubt be: Communication. At no point during the process did I feel like I was less than top priority. Thank you, Jim!.”

“Mortgage By Jim was the broker for a refinance we did in the summer of 2020. Jim was knowledgeable, professional and worked extremely hard to make sure we got the best interest rate. His attention to detail is what separates him from the competition. I highly recommend Mortgage By Jim and will be doing business with him for many years to come.”

“My husband and I had Mortgage by Jim do our condo refinance a few months ago. We were beyond impressed and completely happy with our experience! Jim took his time to be sure we got the lowest rate, he explained the best way to structure the loan where we would end up receiving money back after closing. He met every timeline he set and stayed on top of the lender to be sure our loan would close when he said it would. We found Jim to be very professional, efficient and focused on our loan. We felt confident that he was doing everything he could to make our loan right for us, processed quickly and that our small refi was just as important as a “big money” loan. We have already recommended him to a friend (who also had a great experience)and would definitely use him again in the future.”

“It was a long winding and often difficult road but I wanted to thank you for the effort and professionalism you showed throughout our refinance process. Any other loan officer would have quit on us! Not only did you help us obtain the financing we needed to make some much-needed improvements to our home, your attention to detail helped us to recoup over 6k that we overpaid on our tax returns. Thank you so much!”

"Like many of you, I had not gone through the residential mortgage process in a number of years and I was amazed with the many changes and added rigor it now places on the borrower. Since I bank at Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase, I thought they would be very interested and attentive to my real estate mortgage needs. However, to them I was just another account number and remote voice on the phone. What a difference it made when I met Jim Catalano and began the process.
As a busy executive for a technology company, I welcomed Jim’s follow through and comprehensive approach in covering every detail and preparedness with the application process. He anticipated the timing needed for the appraisal and other necessary documents, so that everything between seller, lender, title company and myself, followed in sequence. Not only did we the close the loan on the date he initially stated, but he was also present at the closing to ensure that every detail and aspect of the loan was documented as he represented throughout the process.
Thank you, Jim for making the process easy and getting me the best rate. Job well done!"

"Thank you Jim for all you did for me. I cannot imagine if all your customers get the same service you provided me. This loan would not have been done without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
