Marty has helped us finance/refi two homes. Whether we were dealing with a refi, a HARP refi or a new purchase, Marty was always responsive and knowledgeable. Every time he has come back with the best rates and closing costs. Additionally, he has kept in contact with us throughout the years in case rates drops and he can save us a few extra dollars. Definitely worth the call to Marty if you are in the market for home financing.
