Shimi Globman and his team were excellent. Very patient, and explained everything clearly. They came through in getting us everything we needed.

Mendy F.-Monticello,NY | MAY 2016

Shimi Globman was very knowledgeable and spent all the time we needed on the phone to answer our questions. He was excellent and clear about what was needed to be done, what is needed and when he will get back to us. We had a lot of faith in all the efforts of Shimi and his entire staff. Maggie, Devorah and Rosa were very professional, helpful and always went the extra mile to help us through the process. In this day and age professionalism goes a long way with a customer. We will always...

Michele M.-Passaic,NJ | MAY 2016

Shimi Globman makes the process very easy.

Daniel L. – Passaic, NJ | Mar. 2015

Shimi was great. He went above and beyond to meet my closing date, being the go-between between the underwriter to deal with a certain issue. He would often call me to update me, on things, and made me feel like it wasn't a bother calling him with any questions. I was surprised and happy that he showed up at the closing. I would highly recommend him to my friends. I was overall very happy with the entire process. Shimi was great. It was nice to get email updates of the progress.

Aaron S. – Flushing, NY | AUG 2015

Shimi Globman was very professional and very knowledgeable of the process. The entire process was fast and I was given a very competitive price with great service.

Avi G. – Clifton, NJ | Feb. 2015

Mirel G. – Clifton, NJ | Jan. 2015

It was a pleasure working with Shimi Globman, the whole mortgage process went very smoothly and easy. Thank you very much for a great experience.

Avi S. – Passaic, NJ | Dec. 2014

Shimi Globman is one of the most thorough, think-out-of-the-box, solutions oriented people I have worked with.

Sarah B. – Brooklyn, NY | Dec. 2014

The whole process from start to finish was great, very smooth. Thank you.

Simcha J.

Thank you very much for all your support throughout the whole process. We had the opportunity to experience only professionalism, patience and friendliness from Shimi and his team. We certainly have already recommended Shimi to a number of our friends and will continue to do so.

Y.Y.

Thanks for everything. The experience with your office is always clear and informative. Adding the electronic ability to load and sign docs this time made it that much easier.

Giovanni S.

Shimi Globman was EXCELLENT at every level. Fast, professional, courteous, patient and answered all questions very well.

Esther M.

Thank you so much for all your diligent and superb efforts on both our refi and new home loans. By far, I felt your service went above and beyond. We are so grateful.

Rebecca G.

Shimi quoted us a great rate on a large loan which was lower than what the market had to offer. Before closing, he reduced the rate even further which will save us tens of thousands of dollars. Also, his appraiser worked very hard to value our house at the purchase price although there were no comparable sales in the area. Lastly, Shimi waived closing costs to save us even more money. All in all, Shimi is all about saving his customers money in ways that no one else does!

Daniel L.

My loan wasn't an easy one, especially because it was a new construction condo and I’m self-employed. Shimi Globman (and staff) helped me each and every step of the way. If i were him i would have given up a long time ago, but no, he patiently took every step at a time and creatively solved every issue. I would definitely recommend Shimi to my friends and would use him again in the future.

Sandy G.

Elizabeth was equally as capable and knowledgeable as Shimi. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for these members of your organization.

Vanesa T.

In an attempt to describe his commitment & dedication to ensuring that this process would be completed as flawlessly as possible the words selfless, patient and relentless come to mind.Selfless because no matter what questions we had,Shimi would find time to answer them. Patient because I know that we could not make up our minds about different aspects yet Shimi would not force us to make a decision. He would just provide information & stand back while we decided. Relentless because it seemed...

This was the best mortgage and /or loan experience I have had. It was easy and simple and all my questions were answered in a very timely manner. My loan officer was Shimi Globman - he and his team were top rate!

Neil Y.

Raizy R. - Jan 2013

I have already refinanced three times with Shimi, and with each one he took the time to understand my specific needs and informed me of what were the best options. He was never too busy to return a call in order to explain clearly what was needed, and to hear ideas from our side. In an economic atmosphere that threatens to stifle us and instill fear, we are indeed blessed that Shimi is around to provide succor and comfort in the form of thousands of saved dollars.

Avraham K.

Just wanted to thank you for taking care of everything & coming through on time in accordance with everything you had promised. The closing went well without any hitches.I put in numerous plugs for you at every opportunity. It wasn't hard to do as I was very satisfied. The other parties there were also impressed that you were able to get it done so quickly. Good Luck & thanks again!

Tzvi H.

Shimi's professionalism and knowledge made our residential mortgage refinance a breeze. He communicated every aspect of the process in a clear, straightforward way, and worked diligently to find the solution that worked best for us, rather than just doing what was easiest for him.

Simcha J.

I've benefited from Shimi's expertise on multiple occasions. He has always offered good insight, a high level of customer service, and most importantly he has always acted with a high level of integrity. I have and continue to recommend him to my friend and colleagues."

David K.

I refinanced my mortgage with Shimi and had a great experience. The rates were very competitive but Shimi's integrity, expert knowledge and overall customer service were the deciding factors for me. Shimi fielded all my questions and even answered a few I didn't think to ask. I've been to another mortgage banker in the area and the experience was not as positive. I would definitely continue to use Shimi for all my mortgage needs going forward.

Andrew T.

Shimi is a model of how client service business should run. Not only did he take the time to explain the mortgage process and answer my questions, he successfully negotiated the best mortgage for my needs. All three attorneys at the closing were impressed with the interest rate that Shimi managed to secure for my mortgage. I strongly recommend Shimi for all your mortgage needs.

Simcha W.

Shimi Globman is the best! We had two great experiences refinancing our home with Shimi. Both times we closed at a rate lower than the initial commitment. He is professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and advises you based on your individual needs and situation. I would definitely recommend him to others.

About Shimi

I joined the mortgage business just a few weeks after closing on our first home in 2004. After experiencing what it means to be a first-time homebuyer, I wanted to help others get through the sometimes difficult mortgage process as smoothly as possible. The first-time homebuyer needs a synopsis of what to expect during the entire transaction. I patiently educate and hand-hold the buyer throughout closing and beyond. I aim to please with low rates & fees as well as exceptional service. Most of my business comes from past clients and referral partners who recommend me to others, so I know Iýve succeeded. The mortgage process contains too many complicated details involving large sums of money for most to handle on their own and therefore, every borrower needs a trusted professional to walk them through it. I am able to deliver to my clients what an internet based company cannot. I look at the complete picture, advising my clients and responding to all their needs. My knowledge and ethics make me someone my clients, real estate professionals, attorneys and financial advisors know they can TRUST!

Shimi interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I joined the mortgage business just a few weeks after closing on our first home in 2004. After experiencing what it means to be a first-time home buyer, I wanted to help others get through the sometimes difficult mortgage process as smoothly as possible.
Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
I receive a lot of calls from first-time home buyers, often they are referred by their real estate agent or attorney. The first-time home buyer needs a synopsis of what to expect during the entire transaction. I patiently educate and hand-hold the buyer throughout the process and even beyond closing. I aim to please with low rates & fees as well as exceptional service. Most of my business comes from past clients and referral partners who recommend me to others, so I know Iýve succeeded.
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I try to put myself in their shoes and help them with the information they need to make an informed decision.
How long have you been in the mortgage business? What awards have you won?
Over 12 years in the business. I have been a President's Club member for almost three out of four years since joining Guaranteed Rate.
What are the pros and cons of a fixed rate mortgage versus an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM)?
One should know that while a fixed-rate mortgage is the most popular product, you are paying for peace of mind and it is no different than an insurance policy. We discuss the savings benefits of various ARM products and sometimes it makes a lot of sense.
Tell us about a specific challenging borrowing situation and how you got the mortgage closed and funded.
Had a few new-construction homes recently that took two years to close which meant a lot more time spent with the client cumulatively. Not only did I still close them with below market rates (3.375% 30 yr. fixed in one recent case) I didn't charge them a penny extra for all the extra hours of work.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
Find someone you can trust...ask around for recommendations and don't be afraid to shop around to be sure your mortgage originator is being competitive.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
Sometimes a Jumbo mortgage (over $417,000) can be better priced than Conforming loans.
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
There has been a lot more regulation and a need for paperwork and signatures. I expect digital signatures to be available at closings in the near future.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
Providing the right documents the first time. We use a checklist, follow up and provide a secure-shared folder to help borrowers follow their progress.
What are the top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process?
That all mortgage originators are out to get them. I'm testimony that you can work with someone who is really there for you.
What 2 or 3 mobile apps would you recommend for home buyers or house hunters, and why? What Smart Apps do you recommend your customers use for the house hunting process?
Guaranteed Rate mobile app helps you shop rates and save.
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
Read the home-buying packet we send our customers by mail. It has all the do's and don'ts for the mortgage process.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Keep your credit profile and bank activity stable. If you aren't unsure if something will be a problem, check with your mortgage originator first.
Are you active in any local associations or community groups, and at what level? What goals and/or success have you helped these groups achieve?
I volunteer time helping the Daf A Week learning program which is a network of serious students of Talmudic study which has enhanced many lives over the past 11 years.
Are you active in any fundraising organizations? What goals and/or success have you helped them achieve?
I like to give back to my community by donating time and funds to local organizations. I am proud to be a sponsor of local sports teams.
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I grew up in Philadelphia, went to high school in Scranton, PA and continued my education in Oak Park, MI, Jerusalem, Israel and Elizabeth, NJ.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
I work hard to provide top-notch service to my referral partners' and their clients and the best testimony to my success is that many real estate agents and attorneys have turned to me for their own mortgages.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I try to spend quality time with my family and I'm also an avid student of the Talmud. I love the Daf A Week program.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I can communicate using sign language as I grew up with hearing-impaired family members.
