  • Obtaining a mortgage through Lenderline was by far the best loan process we have ever experienced.

  • We have purchased and/or refinanced 4 rental properties and 3 different residences... In all those years, we have never dealt with such a professional broker.

  • Lenderline got us a cash-out refinance using 24 months bank statements as income, no tax returns, no 1099, and no 4506-T. They had just the loan product we were looking for, their rates were good, and their attention to detail was outstanding. I have already referred some of my friends.

  • I was at the end of my rope. Other lenders had turned me down due to a recent short sale, and I had a hard money loan with a balloon payment that was coming due. Lenderline was able to pay off my hard money loan, lower my interest rate, and provide some additional cash out at closing. What a lifesaver!

  • I had no FICO scores, and Lenderline was able to get me an FHA loan with only 3.5% down. My mortgage payment is less than my rent was, and I am now a happy homeowner thanks to the awesome loan agents at Lenderline.
