“Chris and team have been a big help in getting our refi done. She and her team worked patiently and diligently with all the different options that we were throwing out at her and finally she came up with a refi plan that satisfied us.”

“My fiance and I were first time home buyers, therefore, it was important for us to find lenders that we could trust since we didn't have prior experience purchasing a home. For this reason, we are so content that we were able to work with Peter and Chris Baird, since they were experienced for 20+ years and know all about the first time buyer FHA program. Also, both Peter and Chris were highly recommended through our trusted Real Estate Agent, Liana Shapiro. Peter, Chris, my fiance, and our Agent met and from there, we hit the ground running fast. They made sure to explain every detail for the paperwork we had to fill out and went through the escrow process efficiently (only 21 days)! Furthermore, Peter made sure to look out for our best interests by assuring that we were able to receive a $5,000 credit due to the interest rate changes that happened from the beginning until the end of escrow. I'm sure other lenders wouldn't have caught that extra credit that we were entitled to based on the market changes that had happened during the process. This initially helped us financially, since we had to pay for a sewer lateral compliance issue that ended up costing us $5,100 out of pocket before closing escrow. We were very pleased with this outcome and we must say that Peter and Chris were exceptionally professional mortgage agents and we had the pleasure of working with them. They both kept in close contact throughout the transaction, which gave us a peace of mind at the end of the day. Peter also made sure to attend the final signing in order to make sure the transaction closed smoothly. My fiance and I give high regards to Peter and Chris Baird and would highly recommend this team to anyone who is looking for honest, efficient, and knowledgeable mortgage professionals.”

They were actually outstanding! Great customer service, really fast turnaround time, very professional people! They delivered as promised. They actually exceeded our expectations. THANKS, BAY EQUITY!”
