Purchase and Refinance

The John Z Team did an amazing job on the purchase of my first home back in 2018. My wife and I just recently refinanced and they closed us in 1 month to which we ended up saving almost $200 on our mortgage payment. Thanks John Z Team!

John and his team were excellent! This was our second time using them. The first was for a cash-out re-if, this time around was a loan for a home purchase. They made it so easy! Super friendly and there every step of the way with us. Thank you, John and team!

Thank You for all your Effort.

The whole team was a huge help they pushed us on a lot of things that needed to be done but finally, after jumping through the hoops it was all worth it. Not often do you really hear of a VA loan closing in 2 weeks. So for all of the effort and struggle thank you all for your help.
