“Our experience with Bay Equity was spectacular! As first-time home buyers we were very nervous about getting everything taken care of quickly and correctly. John made things incredibly easy and walked us through the process. He was always quick to respond to emails or phone calls with additional questions and made sure that we fully understood what we were doing every step of the way. The entire office staff was incredibly patient with us and made everything as easy as possible. Next time I have a friend or family member looking to buy a home, we will be sending them to Bay Equity. I really cannot say enough about how positive our experience was! Thank you again for everything! I have already recommended you to a friend who will hopefully be calling you shortly!”

“I doubted a single-divorced woman, such as I, could ever secure a mortgage on my own. As such, I was looking at local rental properties and discussing my needs with some friends. I was advised that John Forker has some great successes and was an expert in securing mortgages. I put my trust in John and all my cards on the table. John quickly established some requests and requirements for me to complete as we went through the loan process. Furthermore, he provided me with a sense of security, simplicity, and trust during the process as viewed by many as tedious and painful. From that point, I was able to search for what I wanted to own, rather than accept the status quo from the areas selection of rental properties. I put the offer on my new home just before Thanksgiving and closed at Christmas. All was certainly the best Christmas present I could ever have dreamed of to provide my daughters and myself!!! All in appreciation of John's direction and expertise, which has proved far above and beyond the typical mortgage financier!”

“We recently bought our home this month with Bay Equity as our loan company. And all throughout our home buying period, we never experienced any problems with Bay Equity. 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!”
