In September 1999, I signed an agreement of sale for purchase of my first home in Harleysville PA. This necessitated a careful evaluation of several mortgage lenders on important criteria such as price (i.e. interest rate & closing costs), level of service, honesty, knowledge of both the mortgage lending and real estate industries & perhaps most importantly whether the mortgage lender would truly work for me.
This evaluation led me to the decision to have Laurence Ostrom & Professional Mortgage Consultants handle my mortgage needs. I have since used Laurence's services for two refinance transactions on the house in Harleysville—in February 2001 & August 2003 respectively. Lastly, I hired Laurence once again to assist me in August 2005 for the purchase of my second home in Newtown PA.
In each case, Laurence aggressively sought out the best mortgage loan for my needs & the closing cost structure was attractive, in particular the hundreds of dollars he saved me on title insurance. In addition, his honesty, knowledge of the big picture of the real estate business & level of service was stellar. There is nobody that I would trust more than Laurence to help navigate my way through the maze of mortgage lending and real estate transactions. Most importantly, Laurence works for YOU & he understands the fundamental bottom line—namely to meet the needs & desires of the customer—both before and after closing.
In short, I consider the decision to have Laurence work for me as one of the smartest decisions I have made in my life. Feel free to contact me at 215-799-5231 if additional information or specific examples of the above mentioned are needed.
