    Best Refinance Ever

    (0) (0)
    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!!

    (0) (0)
    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!!...

    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

    Excellent VA Loan experience

    (0) (0)
    Griffin Funding, I just wanted to take the time to thank Sarah, Lien and Tanya on an excellent job and to relay how well they have represented your company. I tried to work with a couple other brokers and really just didn’t understand some things, I asked questions and I received very truncated and vague responses. I admit I took me about a year to choose Griffin Funding, but Sarah did a fine job of keeping in touch and providing me illustrations so I could make an educated and informed decision. I felt very involved in the process and did not have to ask what was happening because they told me before I had to ask the question. I am extremely pleased with the overall service provided and the smoothness of the process of obtaining a VA Loan. The end of the process and results were just what I was looking for. You will enjoy their friendly service. They have consistently made extra efforts in assisting me in completing my loan on time with the best rates and a streamlined checklist process. They made it happen. I give them the highest ratings. Thank You Griffin Funding and most of all Thank You Sarah, Lien and Tanya for an outstanding experience. ... Read More

    The staff at Griffin Funding; Eric and Julie Nielsen in particular, have become more than just a lending source for me. I've developed personal friendships, and they've become my first choice for any financing that I need. I have never been disappointed. They're honest, have integrity, and their performance is excellent. I would recommend them to anyone who desires to seek funding... Read More

    Poor Choice

    (0) (0)
    As a vet I am urging people to consider another broker for your refi loan. They do not seem to be an organization that stays with their word. I applied for a loan with money out. I was quoted a no cost loan which I accepted. I explained to both the original broker and the account manager my time frame since I was going to be leaving the country about 60 days post application. Both assured me this would be no problem. All paperwork was sent on time,usually within 24 hours of being requested. About three weeks prior to me leaving I was called and told the loan was "postponed" as they could not close in time. I was told the loan could be completed upon my return but the rates became higher and Griffin would not honor the old rates. The amount it would have cost Griffin to honor the old rate was very small but they decided that a grateful customer was not worth it. After being asked they did refund me my appraisal money and not my report since the appraisal was apparently never done. Glad I asked. They also fired the loan agent for their own failure to supervise. Not a great employer either. ... Read More

    Amazing customer Service

    Michael and his team were amazing from the beginning to end of my VA loan refinance process. He explained the process and answered all my questions from day 1 until we closed the deal. It was a lenghty process but he kept pushing for lender's prompt response and was able to get us an amazing rate. He truly believes in customer satisfaction and will do anything within his means to take care of you, I highly reccomend him... Read More
