Truly outstanding. Team was on it 250%! Difficult loan but they knew all the ins and outs and requirements and avenues and exceptions and they did what needed to be done. Would recommend them unreservedly! Thanks.

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.
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!

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.

Jeff was so great throughout the whole process. This is my 3rd mortgage with him and I keep coming back. He is so communicative each step of the way and went above and beyond checking in after hours and on weekends to insure our loan funded on time.

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.

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.

Christopher T.- Newport Beach, CA | MAY 2016
I contacted Jeff due to all his rave reviews on yelp and I have to say, they were all spot on! He helped us when we were told we couldn't qualify for a refinance and it was smooth sailing from start to finish. Jeff kept in close contact with us throughout, even when he was on a 2 week vacation! His quick response to us and keeping us abreast of where things were at was great! I knew things were progressing well and had no worries due to his professional handling of all the details. I highly...

Jeff did an excellent job of explaining and navigating us through the new TRID regulations. He was responsive to our questions, got us a great interest rate, and made sure we closed on time. Jeff was always available and we highly recommend him.
John H. – 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
I had previous experience with Jeff Boschler and he has always been very helpful and professional.
Maureen E. – Santa Barbara, CA | SEP 2015
Applying for a mortgage is not a fun experience, but it’s even worse if you happen to be self-employed and need to borrow a rather substantial amount to bridge the gap between buying the next house and then selling the current property. We finally found the right property after looking for almost two years, but the sellers needed a short escrow. Fortunately, our agent referred us to Maddox Rees because he is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and experienced. Even when unanticipated hurdles...
Sylvia B. – Self-employed Home Buyer
My agent, Jeff Boshler, was fantastic.
Thomas K.– Santa Barbara, CA | May. 2015
Jeff was great I would recommend him to anyone looking for a loan.
Phillip F. – Goleta, CA | March 2015
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
Jeff was communicative, insightful, and encouraging. He orchestrated the process very well and was available when I needed help.
