On May 26 2016 I made inquiry of Jim Crawford about the idea of lowering AND shortening my mortgage repayment. I also asked to draw against my equity, almost $20,000 to pay off some bills and put the rest into savings for travel plans to Europe next year (2017). Jim was absolutely accommodating every step of the way, right up to the moment the extra funds were deposited within my bank some 33 days later!
I first met Jim back in June of 2011 when I first bought my home, I later refinanced it with him during the better financial market conditions of the following year (2012) and came away lowering my payment still further. Seeing that the market was about as low as it’s going to go, plus all indications were that the Fed’s were possibly getting ready to raise the interest rates finally, I started this last refi. in May of 2016.
I wish I had known Jim back in 1993 and in 2005 when I bought my first two homes; Jim’s incredible talent to get the best, most expedient deal for his clients is awesome, there are no other words for it! Once you will go with Jim on a purchase; a refi or anything else, you’ll never go with anyone else! Jim’s got my business from now on and he knows it.
To date; Jim, with his assistant Carla and I have exchanged 214 emails on this one refi effort! From requests to double checks to simple but important inquires on how and when to do things so it all got done in record time. I mean come on, we all know it usually takes from 45 to 60 days to get all the way through to escrow, so how does Jim do it in 33 days… it’s truly amazing! As I stated before; I’ll never go with anyone else here on out.
I cannot state any stronger my satisfaction for all that Jim has done for my family and myself; no question was too small or unimportant, not one inquiry was ignored, nothing left to question, no stone unturned. In 33 short days, all my thoughts, my requests and my needs have been answered and fulfilled and now I have requested to write a letter of recommendation on Jim’s behalf to spread the good word to others.
Don’t delay, make the inquiries you’re hesitant to ask, nothing you have is unimportant to Jim and his assistants. Do not hesitate; this is the lesson I have learned yet again from this exercise with him, recall the old saying “Nothing ventured, nothing gained,” you have nothing to lose, so make the inquiry today!!!
