Maddox has done a fabulous job for me and my clients over many years. He is proactive, thorough and creative. He and his team are on top of all the details and have never failed to come through. I could not recommend him more highly.

Elliot Shell – CPA

Maddox is by far the most honest and friendly broker my wife and I have worked with. He has held our hand through 3 refinances in the past 10 years and despite the see-sawing economy he has always made sure that we secured the best rates available. I cannot recommend Maddox and his hard-working team highly enough, and when we are ready to move again he will be the first one I call!

Howard Robinson – Software Architect

Maddox and his high quality team get the job done with eloquence, honesty, top notch communication and great rates. I would give him the highest recommendations possible.

Gregg Leach – Realtor with Village Properties

Three times in the past six years my wife and I have refinanced our home with the help of Maddox Rees. I can say unequivocally that other than the better rates, working with Maddox and his assistants were the only pleasurable parts of an otherwise odious process. Maddox is a smart, nimble thinker who well understands the mortgage business, and his people skills are clearly of like quality. Not for one moment, in all three transactions, did I lack confidence in Maddox’s knowledge and ability to...

Daniel Frank – Long-time Client

Jeff did an amazing job walking us through the very complicated process of getting a loan. He handled each stage with the level of friendliness and support that made me and my family feel very at ease with the process. Couldn’t of asked for anything better.

Jesse L. | June 2018

I have no hesitation recommending Maddox and his crew. Maddox was proactive in making sure I had everything lined up properly to get my loan. Because of this we were able to close almost one week early. Can’t do much better than that! We also put together a loan package that suited my needs. I’m now a happy homeowner and the process was smooth as silk.

Bruce Covington – First-time Home Buyer

Jeff, and his entire staff were very knowledgeable. At first I was a little concerned about an All electronic/online application and document process. After the first few docs that were transmitted I realized that This was going to be a very effective and quick process. Communication is important to me, and all parties Involved were great at communicating what was expected of me. I never felt like i was lost in the process, even when Jeff Left the country he was still very attentive to my...

James T. – Santa Barbara, CA | APR 2016

Our situation was complex as we are international, had only lived in the US for a short time, and had a month to raise a mortgage. Maddox was absolutely wonderful! He has a can do attitude that is followed through with speed, responsiveness, and efficiency. I appreciate that he kept us informed all along the way, and that he never tired of explaining things. We felt in very good hands.

Caroline Wicht – Long-time International Client

Maddox Rees has helped me and my husband with four loans. He is a professional that pays attention to detail, and turns over every stone to make sure that you have the best deal. I enjoy working with Maddox because he gets the job done and is very personable. He was able to get us very favorable loan terms. Thanks to his expert guidance and knowledge of the mortgage industry, his attention to detail in helping us gather all the necessary documentation, and his efforts to make everything as...

Amy and Eric Ryan – Long-time Clients

Maddox, Jasun, and John were the right guys for me. I am a small business man doing business as a sole proprietor. With these new lending laws it is difficult to prepare the right information for the underwriters. Maddox and the team walked me through each phrase with an explanation of why and helped me get the proper info to the underwriter. My loan was approved but it seemed like going to the dentist at each phase. Without Maddox I don’t know how I would have gotten a loan. It was a pleasure...

John J. Ulman – Self-employed Home Buyer

This is our second time dealing with Jeff. First time was purchasing our house, second time was for refinancing. Next time we have to purchase a house or need to refinance we will look no further. Jeff is extremely professional, helpful, accurate and clear. Made our refinancing process so easy. He got us a great rate too! Highly recommend!

Jamie P. – Santa Barbara, CA | APR 2016

I only have high praise for Maddox. This was no easy refinance but Mr. Rees pulled it off with persistence and aplomb. At every turn in this rather circuitous road, he was clearly on top of the game, masterful and efficient. Maddox was also honest and worked within the financial framework that we provided. I found him trustworthy, friendly, professional and very focused.

Michael Morgan – Professor

Jeff Bochsler is one smart guy. He helped us through our first home purchase and it was a complicated deal that seemed to drag on over time. Jeff is professional and kind and gets the job done. Not only would I recommend him but I've talked to other real estate agents, real estate attorneys, and title companies who would 100% recommend him.

Nora L. – Santa Barbara, CA | APR 2016

Maddox and team successfully navigated a path through a complex refinance for us. Our questions and concerns were always answered promptly and completely. We were able to complete everything from office and home. Maddox came highly recommended and it is a pleasure to pass on our own commendation of a job well done!

Geoff Needham – Company Director

I had previous experience with Jeff Boschler and he has always been very helpful and professional.

Maureen E. – Santa Barbara, CA | SEP 2015

Maddox got the job done and that’s what counts. Excellent communication throughout. He was able to navigate a complex international financial profile and had a Plan B and C ready when we needed it. Thanks Maddox!

Ken - Home Buyer

I highly recommend Maddox Rees to broker the loan you need for you home. He has the ability to focus the necessary parties on the deal at hand, and reduce any degree of confusion/uncertainty.

Kris – Home Buyer

My agent, Jeff Boshler, was fantastic.

Thomas K.– Santa Barbara, CA | May. 2015

Maddox has been a great contact and helped me with many mortgages through the last 10-15 years. He is dependable and committed to his client’s best interests. He is a moan “of his word” and doesn’t “over promise and under deliver.” I have given him some tough assignments and I appreciate his approach to learn, educate and be tenacious to get the best deal possible. I believe he is always looking for the “win-win” so all will benefit from his efforts. He puts in the time and personal effort to...

Gary L Gentile – Hospitality Consultant

Jeff's professionalism and industry knowledge helped make this a very smooth process even while working on a very hurried timeline (closing in 17 days). Jeff also makes the process transparent which makes for a trusting relationship. I will highly recommend him to friends and family seeking a competitive mortgage loan.

Ryan M. – Cupertino, CA | Mar. 2015
