    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

    Anthony Benigno is a true professional. He was able to deliver on time. He was able to answer all my questions no matter what time of the day I called, and provide my family superb customer service. It is great to know that companies that provide this type of service, have representatives that can deliver. Thank you again Anthony for making this refinance a positive and memorable one.

    When I first contacted Anthony to refinance, he was forthright and recommended not moving forward, as the savings would not be substantial. When rates changed for the better, Anthony reached out and provided different refinance options. I ended up closing with Anthony and got a fantastic rate. Highly recommended.

    Wonder staff and great team members. Micheal Varni was honest and genuine with his sales efforts and provided me with straight information to make an informed decision. Griffin follow up was professional and timely. I would greatly recommend these folks to my Mother or Brother.

    Phenomenal Company

    I was looking to refinance for a lower rate and found Griffin Funding. The application and entire refinance process was done over the phone. Loan officers and Account manager were extremely professional and personable (Marshall and Ali). Both were easy to reach via phone or email. Any message I sent/left were returned the same day! The entire refinance process took 45 days. Any glitches along the way, were fixed immediately. I was very pleased with what Griffin Funding promised. They wanted to make sure we were happy. I’m very impressed with professionalism of the people I worked with at Griffin Funding, especially Ali Cruzan. Phenomenal company... Read More

    I was looking to refinance for a lower rate and found Griffin Funding. Marshall Martinez called me and went over the rates. He then sent me a worksheet with the details. The application and entire refinance process was done over the phone. Marshall was extremely professional and personable. He was easy to reach via phone or email. Any message I sent/left were returned the same day! The entire refinance process took 45 days. Any glitches along the way were fixed immediately. I was very pleased with what Griffin Funding promised. They wanted to make sure we were happy. Marshal even sent me an email to indicate the load was funded. I’m very impressed with professionalism of the people I worked with at Griffin Funding, especially Marshall. Phenomenal people and company... Read More

    Anthony was amazing throughout the entire home buying process. He handled our loan like we were his only clients and made us feel like family. He even called us a few days after closing to make sure we were settled in and completely happy. The seller of the home we bought wanted to close things quickly and Anthony and his team got everything done in less than 30 days. They were so fast in fact the seller wasn't ready when we were. We highly recommend Anthony to all our friends and will use him again on our next purchase.... Read More

    Anthony was great. We were hesitant to refi at first but he helped us find the best option for our situation. We had a lot of questions and he walked us through it all. After all was said and done, we are so happy with our decision. Thanks for all the help Anthony B.
