“I can only say that due to my situation I was rather doubtful a refi would be possible. After speaking with Jonathan, the first time, I felt there was a chance. Before I knew it, there it was, a new mortgage that I could handle and a certain piece of mind. A great comfort that was needed after losing my wife of 16 years, I can keep our home.”
“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!”
