I have financed several mortgages through Maddox and his crew with great success. In fact, the latest mortgage was extremely time sensitive and they were able to expedite the process insuring a prosperous closing.

Time Wilde – Long-time Client

I’ve worked with Maddox Rees on several refinances and he has always been fast, professional, and focused on what worked best for me and my family. He is proactive and keeps us up to date on the latest news and how we can work together to make the market and our property work for us. I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a mortgage or a refinance loan. In a complicated world like real estate finance, it’s great to have an upbeat, knowledgeable, and trustworthy guide like Maddox.

Jim Buckley – Writer

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

Amazing Company, Maddox really goes the extra mile to make sure you get the best deal possible. His team is at the top of their game!! A ++ I highly recommend his service.

Jeffrey G.

We consider Maddox Rees the most skilled professional in his field that we have ever met and his guidance through the process of obtaining a mortgage for us was invaluable. Maddox had to think “out of the box” with our unusual financial situation that required many hours of dedication to information gathering, communicating with us, his colleagues, and various financial institutions, all with infinite patience and professionalism. When Maddox has your back, you can count on your mortgage.

Luciano Giorgini

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 Rees is a true professional when it comes to straight forward or more complex mortgage situations. Mr. Rees has consistently provides a high level of service and has been fantastic at explaining the options available. He is considerate of the client’s personal views and does not have a hard sell mentality. I am fortunate to have a contact in the mortgage business who is as honest, knowledgeable and hard working as Maddox.

Danny Echt – Long-time Client

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

When Peggy Olcese finally found us a home that would meet our needs at a fair price, (at least as fair as any home in the Santa Barbara area) she negotiated with the seller and the seller’s agent to make the transaction as painless as possible. She even found us financing, after our initial (guaranteed) loan fell through!! Peggy hooked us up with Maddox Rees and his team. He was set with the virtually impossible task of getting us a mortgage in a couple of weeks after another local lender...

Stephen R. Syson – Consulting Engineer

Hello…I just want to acknowledge Maddox and his team for the convenient and expedient refinancing they mastered for me, not too long ago…Maddox specifically guided me through w/o hazzle and as a matter of fact, I didn’t need to do much myself…Thanks’ again…/ Lars…

Lars Wikblad

Honestly in today’s more complex underwriting process Maddox Rees is in a league of his own. After obtaining several more complex loans through Maddox and his team, every time they have come through. His team works well together and they are entirely committed to their clients. Their level of detail and professionalism is superior and their ability to navigate complex funding is impressive.

Joanna von Yurt – GVMS Partners Real Estate

We had the pleasant experience of financing a new (to us) home and refinancing another residence with Maddox Rees. They anticipated the bumps in the road and with their help we had necessary docs prepared in a timely manner. Additionally, Maddox and his team were able to get our financing and refinancing needs satisfied in record time. There were minimal stresses and headaches and we would recommend Maddox Rees and his team wholeheartedly.

Tom Inman – Business Manager

Maddox was great to work with and went out of his way to help my wife and I with refinancing our home. I would happily recommend Maddox to anyone.

Nathan – Home Owner

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

My wife and I were introduced to Maddox at a critical juncture of our home purchase. He helped us navigate the complex (and frustrating!) process of procuring a loan and we are beyond thankful he came into the mix when he did. Simply put, we could not have accomplished our goal without Maddox’s expertise. He lived up to his reputation of getting the job done and did so in an efficient, professional and enjoyable manner – Maddox has an uncanny ability to simplify the arduous task of home...

Carlos Lopez-Hollis – CEO, CLH Enterprises, Inc.

We are extremely pleased with the comprehensive, flexible, and outstanding expertise and customer service provided by Maddox Rees. He and his team turned a very non-standard real estate transaction into an efficient, streamlined process. It was overwhelmingly apparent that clients’ best interests are always placed first. We have become long-term clients and enthusiastically recommend Maddox to anyone looking to navigate the home loan process.

Daniel Brown – Business Development Manager

Maddox was a complete professional, guiding us through a very difficult loan process with many, many moving parts and personalities involved. It was a difficult process to say the least but Maddox was able to secure a great rate and program for us. I highly recommend Maddox for any home loan. A true professional.

Greg & Jenn – Investor

If you need someone to go to bat for you for your next new home loan, Maddox and his stellar team are for you. Maddox and his team worked tirelessly to help us get a new home loan. He did what he promised and worked hard to delivery. Where others quickly gave up, Maddox would not and he pulled through for us. Lending is tough these days but Maddox and his team will exhaust every resource they have to make your dream come true.

Nikunj Patel – Home Buyer

Jeff and his team were exceptional. Prompt responses, extremely knowledgeable, and highly personable. Overall a great experience and I'm grateful for their help.

Christopher T.- Newport Beach, CA | MAY 2016

Ms. Warren was exceptional. She was always available to answer my questions and advocate on my behalf. I couldn't have gone through this difficult process without her.
