    Work with Griffin Funding - they are awesome!

    Sarah at Griffin reached out to me within minutes of requesting information and guided us through the entire process. Any commitment made was met by her and her colleagues (thank you Ali). This was a new re-fi experience for us. We'd work with Griffin again in a heartbeat.

    Erik was Amazing! He was helpful, friendly, easy to contact and persistent. Erik told us it would be hard work to clear up some of our past credit, he didn't sugar coat anything, BUT he was with us every step of the way. Thank you Erik!

    Satisfied Customer

    My husband and I were struggling to refinance our home. I went on Lending Tree and found Griffin Funding. Within minutes I was speaking to Eric Jensen. Eric was so positive, helpful and he made our refinancing happen. My husband and I are grateful for Eric's time, hard work and persistence. Griffin Funding helped us to financially breathe easier. Thank you for Eric and his team... Read More

    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.

    A+ Team

    If there were six stars they would be receiving them. How do you like your peanut butter? I like mine smooth, like the process I experienced with Griffin Funding. I don't know if it could get any easier. They are honest, they respond, they answer questions, they call you back, they make it right if it goes wrong. Thank you to the amazing team. If you can request an account manager, ask for Ali Cruzan, she is on top of it and knows what she is doing. Thank you Ali, thank you Griffin. I will use you again and again... Read More

    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!

    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.

    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.
