    Honest Lender

    Erik is a great lender. He always works hard to get you locked in the best rate for you. He is responsive and even during his move to another state took the time to call and explain things to me. I highly recommend Erik and his team, they are amazing.

    Griffin Rocks

    Griffin, I just read that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will begin waiving appraisal requirements on a limited number of home purchase loans they back and had already started waiving the need for "property inspections" on certain refinance loans last December. My expressed frustration with the exorbitant appraisal costs and requirements is finally being dealt with. I feel vindicated! Also, my estimate of the final payoff of the of my original mortgage was also correct and the mortgage company sent me a check for $2660. I think my last mortgage payment had not been considered. Please understand these are not criticisms of Griffin in any way. They are in fact a expression of the excellent communication we developed during my loan process. Griffin performed professionally and efficiently and your explanations of all aspects of the loan were timely and accurate. Your loan estimates were never underestimated. The VA funding fee went from $15K to $9K (not sure why) and the resulting cash to buyer ended up going from $35K to close to $43K. How can I not be pleased? I recommend Griffin to anyone interested in excellent service. Thanks, Rober... Read More

    You can't go wrong with Griffin Funding

    I literally went through FOUR other brokers with NO success. Being referred to Griffin funding was a God send. The openness, ability to think outside the box LEGALLY, be supportive, hear me, and worked as a TEAM! Before I could ask for an update, they were giving me one with a step by step assurance of what to expect. They also met my deadline because after wasting time with FOUR other brokers they moved expeditiously to ensure my financial needs were met. HIGHLY recommend... Read More

    Griffin Funding is the best!

    Erik and Kristi are the best. I have completed two jumbo VA loans with them in last year and they were perfectly smooth (one refinance and one purchase). They make navigating the process as easy as possible, are VERY responsive and super helpful. I cannot thank them enough!

    Ali and Sarah were very helpful and guided me through the process. Also had a rather pleasant surprise with the final numbers. It was very efficient. I also saved some money in the process. This was a chance encounter.

    Very helpful. Kudos to her and Ali Cruzan. The process was smooth and efficient and they helped every step of the way. I also received a pleasant surprise when the final figures came. The terms were great and I saved money overall. Closing costs are about what I expected. Strongly recommend them.

    Best Refinance Ever

    We recently refinanced our home using a VA home loan. We all know the VA requires a lot of paperwork, that being said, Griffin Funding made the process so much easier and less complicated as with a previous VA loan. Our account manger Tanya as well as Andrew we're so easy to work with. If we were unsure of any paperwork or had questions to confirm what something meant before we signed, they were there to help us understand completely before we moved on. They made sure we were comfortable the whole way through the process. I would definitely recommend them to others as well as use them again in the future when needed.... Read More

    Best Loan Experience Ever!!

    I don't usually post to social media, but I was so thrilled by my experience with Griffin Funding I wanted other people to know how they could find the help that they needed by starting a dialogue with Larry. I had tried at least ten other times tor refinance my dangerous adjustable mortgage, but no one was able to help me until I called Larry. He is very knowledgeable, super friendly, experienced, and always available to answer questions patiently and truthfully. I am also so grateful to Tanya, who relentlessly had my back. She is smart, dedicated, thorough, and she always went over and above during this entire process. She made herself available even well after hours if needed, to problem solve, clarify issues and she was there to guide me and be sure that things stayed on track. I always felt informed and in control of the decisions. In the end Tanya and Larry exceeded all of my expectations. I am tremendously impressed by their professionalism and ethics. They saved my home and the monthly savings will be life changing. Thanks so much Griffin Funding, I appreciate your help and look forward to working with you again. I am happy to recommend your outstanding services to my family, friends and business associates. If you need to buy or refinance a home call Griffin Funding, you will be glad that you did!!...

    Amazing Service!

    I can't say enough nice things about Sarah's service. She was responsive, smart, and was a creative problem solver. She made our complicated refis happen and got us AMAZING rates on both. I cannot not recommend her enough.

    Amazing Service and Results!

    Sarah and Kristi did an amazing job with our Refi. Our refis were not easy (ours never are, for a myriad of reasons) and Sarah and Kristi did an amazing job with both our home and our investment property refis. We get offers from other companies all the time and they can't even compete with the work Sarah and Kristi did. They were so responsive and always on it. I would absolutely recommend... Read More
