As first time home buyers, we were in the market for a jumbo loan for 80% of the purchase and a HELOC for 10%. This was further complicated by unusual seller demands, but Mike Brown helped to make it as smooth as possible. He provided clear expectations at the outset, was upfront about our projected costs and lender requirements, and made sure his team stayed on the ball right up to closing. We are very comfortable recommending Mike to prospective borrowers, regardless of the lender he...
Mike Brown and his team were friendly, timely and professional. Our loan was complicated and they made it easy. I will recommend them to anyone looking for a loan and will certainly use them again when the time comes. Truly outstanding.
Mike Brown was so helpful and knowledgeable and worked so hard for us. He did a fantastic job.
Mike Brown was excellent. Always very responsive and creative in reacting to any challenges that arose.
I've known Mike Brown for 15+ years and if he says he can do something he does! He has a great team and I really appreciated how they walked me through the loan process!
The whole team (Dorian and Linda) were excellent to us and were very organized. Mike Brown went above and beyond, fielding every question and answering every call. He was a real pleasure to work with.
Mike Brown was absolutely fantastic. He guided me through the process expertly and was always contactable, even on week-ends. I will most definitely recommend him but also use him again. Linda Maxwell was equally professional. Overall it was the best mortgage experience I ever had.
The process was fast and easy, Thanks Mike!
Mike made buying our first home fun! We would always use Mike and recommend him to our friends.

My attorney recommended Mike as someone who could help me with a purchase of a high end Co-Op here on the upper West Side. Mike was able to get me excellent terms on a building that many other lenders would not finance due to the building’s pending litigation. I am very happy with Mike and would recommend him to anyone.

I went to Mike on a recommendation from a friend who used him many times. I was going through an awful divorce, and this also happened to be the first time I ever bought home on my own. Mike taught me a lot about the process and was informative and kind. I am now a happy homeowner thanks to Mike.
I bought a second home and I was referred to Mike from a coworker. I spoke to him, as well as 10 other lenders, and found a better rate somewhere else. Mike thought it was too good to be true, and that product wasn’t available on a 2nd home, but I didn’t listen, especially since the other lender said it was available. Four agonizing weeks later and almost losing the house, Mike saved the day. He rushed my file through with a similar product and I made the closing date happen.
I work for a major bank and get a pretty good discount on mortgage products. My financial advisor said I should call Mike just to make sure the rate and product I had was the best. It wasn’t, Mike beat my rate and gave me a better product that my lender didn’t even offer.
I have been selling real estate for over 25 years and using Mike for 15 of them. I always give 3 names but sure Mike’s name is first on my list, and I urge my customers to call him first. I can say that Mike get 90% of my business because of his professionalism. I can call Mike any day, any time, even on vacation and he always picks up or he will call me right back.
Michael was very creative and because of that he got me into my home. I was turned down by my own bank and another mortgage broker, because I was only self-employed for 15 months. Mike structured the loan properly and not only got me approved, but my rate was great!
My parents recommended me to Mike when I wanted to buy my 1st condo. I was very nervous but Mike said he would “hold my hand through the entire process”, and he did just that. I know that my loan amount was much lower than my parents, but Mike made me feel like I was borrowing millions.
Mike is amazing. He is the only mortgage broker that I ever recommend. There are so many great things that Mike has done for me other the past 10 years. A favorite of mine is when he hand delivered an urgent rush file, 7 hours away to a lender who was located in Buffalo at the time. Nobody, including me would do that!
