Really Happy Clients

  • "We are first time home buyers and our realtor suggested we check out a couple of mortgage companies to get a pre-approval letter. With The Imber Group It could have not been easier. I initially spoke with Stuart Imber on the phone and he immediately invited me to meet face-to-face if I preferred. I can’t tell you how rare that is in my experience with banks! My wife and I met at his office (after he offered to come to our home!) and were blown away by how he walked us through the loan process. Stuart and his staff prepared us for potential pitfalls and suggested ways to avoid delays. We met our loan commitment and closed as scheduled without any issues. We could not recommend The Imber Group any higher!"
