Jeremy W. - June | 2018

The whole team that was helping me, that includes Andres Benitez, Jennifer Dixon, Danouta Sheliga-Topchian, and Savvas Fetfatsidis were simply phenomenal and I would not be able to get our brand new construction home without them. As it is almost always true with new construction, our deadlines were completely missed and pushed back almost month and a half after the closing date. Everyone was super helpful and supportive throughout this complicated and frustrating new construction process! They...

I highly recommend Savvas as a loan officer. He was very helpful. Answered my texts and calls even on her wife's birthday. This dude is the real deal. He goes above and beyond just to make sure you can afford your loan. He pointed out every single detail and gave you the explanations needed. Thank you So Much Guaranteed Rate for making this transition as smooth as possible.

I worked with Savvas Fetfatsidis and had a wonderful experience. I have bought and sold 4 homes prior to my current purchase and have not had a more pleasant and easy experience. The entire process from my first phone call to the last was wonderful. Savvas was as eager to help me as I was to get the process finished. He pushed it through in a very short time frame, was professional, helpful, courteous and just a nice person. Your service is first-class, responsive and competitive.

Cristina E. - NEEDHAM, MA 8/2012

Everything went smoothly and the closing went very well. Savvas Fetfatsidis made the process easy and we closed within 6 weeks. This is the easiest refinance process we ever had.

Sveta B. - Boston, MA 7/2012

Everything went smoothly, and the details were exactly as you explained on the phone. The entire process took only about 40 minutes, and we were done. Very pleased at how quickly things went from start to finish with this refinance. I want to thank you again for your work on this - we appreciate it! We'll certainly recommend your services to friends.

Arthi D. - Jamaica Plain, MA 7/2012

I wanted to take the time to thank you for all of the effort you put into the refinancing of our home. The closing went well last night and we are so pleased. We will certainly pass the word anyone looking to refinance that without question, you should be the first call that is made.

Kate & Rob - Boston, MA 4/2012

I also wanted to personally thank you for all the hard work you have put in for managing this loan. Your patience in dealing with my many questions did not go unnoticed. Should a future client ever need a reference please feel free to forward my contact information to them. I would also be more than happy to refer your services to any friends/family in the future who are in need of loans! I will let them know that Savvas will make it happen!

Faren L. - Boston, MA 4/2012

Very well... Savvas and his team kept us informed and gave us suggestions on what was the best route for us to go. He was available 24/7 it seemed and had an answer right away. I felt very confident in leaving this refinancing in his and his teams hands. Very Satisfied. It was even better that for the closing the lawyer came to our home which was a help. Sawas and his team gave us the best closing date we could and in the end we did not have to go to the table with as much money as we had...

Ann D. - Milford, MA 2/2012

On behalf of my husband and myself I would like to thank you and your team for helping us refinance. We finished signing around 12:30pm today and are so pleased. You and your team did a great job and we are so happy this stimulas package worked for us and we not only lowered our interest rate but we were able to close with a smaller closing fee. Great job. As I said over the phone I plan on telling all my friends to refinance with you and your team.

Ann D. - Milford, MA 1/2012

Working with Savvas, the process of my refinance was clearly explained, my options were always presented for consideration with no hint of pressure. I felt Savvas's sincerity to provide the best service possible. With the business conducted via phone and email felt reassured through every step of the process.

Carolyn J. - Dorchester, MA 12/2011

Everything went exceedingly well. Savvas Fatfetsidis was friendly, efficient, and effective. He sought out multiple options including some that I didn't initially qualify for, but after taking the necessary actions I ultimately did. This conscientiousness resulted in me having several great options, and I merely had to choose the loan that made the most sense for me. He is exactly the kind of person one hopes to encounter (but rarely does) when dealing with financial products.

Savvas interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
The most important aspect of my job is to be as thorough and as clear as possible with my clients. It is very important for me to understand as much about them as it is for them to understand what they are getting into. Only then can I put together the perfect mortgage program that suites their needs. Once I have a clear idea of my customer\'s current situation and future needs, I can tailor the program for them. Whether they are looking to purchase a home or refinance their existing home, I have the knowledge and experience to place them into Conventional, Jumbo, FHA, VA and Mass Housing loans.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
The most important advice I can give to first time home buyers is to always work with a mortgage consultant that truly cares about their needs and will look out for them. They should ask as many questions as possible, even when they think they know the answer, and expect the mortgage consultant to answer them thoroughly and honestly. Finally, they should ask that they be emailed a summary of the rate and program that was discussed along with any pertinent information needed.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Preparation is the key to a smooth mortgage transaction. Asking the mortgage consultant what will be needed throughout the process will ensure that the refinance or purchase of a home moves forward in an efficient pace. Rates are usually locked for 40-55 days, so it is important to get everything together and respond quickly to lender documentation requests.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
The most satisfying part of being a Loan Officer is meeting my customers at the closing table and seeing the excitement in their eyes when they finish signing all the paperwork for a purchase of their new home. My satisfaction of this moment is so great that I take a picture with my clients after every closing and then hang them up in my office. My office is now filled with pictures of extremely happy people looking at me after I helped them with the most important purchase of their lives. I love my job.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I have a 6 year old daughter that keeps me on my toes and has convinced me that acting silly and dancing while listening to songs from the Disney channel is the perfectly fine. I also love playing classical guitar and watching magic shows. Yes ... magic shows.
