About Me

Offering unbeatable customer experience is how I persevered in our industry for over 13 years. My strongest attribute is staying true to the course of business and life and treating others the way I would like to be treated. When a client trusts me with one of their most important financial decisions, I treat it as such. Whether buying or refinancing, my clients have access to me 7 days a week; if a question arises I don’t want you to wait until Monday. We research a lot of things, but ultimately want a real human to be there for us. I look forward to hearing from you and your lending needs.

    Amazed and Appreciative

    My wife and I started our pre-approval process and was referred to George Pantelaras with Planet Home Lending through the LendingTree website. George was so helpful in leading us through this process, always being available for calls and texts, always returning messages promptly. Our credit scores needed just a little bit of help, and he was able to guide us on the best things to do to improve our situation. He has gone above and beyond what we ever expected to help us get pre-approved for the perfect home. Thank you, George, for all you have done! We couldn’t be more pleased!... Read More

    George is making our dream a reality!

    In looking for a mortgage, I decided on a Sunday morning that LendingTree would be a simple route to be connected to a lender that would be a good fit. I definitely didn't expect to get a call from a loan officer immediately! George Pantelaras spent about an hour on the phone with me that morning, and now 48 hours later we are farther along in the process than I could have ever imagined. He has been in constant contact, answering every question and making this one of the smoothest transactions! My family is so excited that we found George and we will be closing on our dream home next month!... Read More

    Thank You

    George Panteleras was amazing throughout the entire home buying process. Not only did he get us the lowest rate available at the time, he was there every step of the way, even when we ran into bumps in the road. We know that he went above and beyond to make sure that our loan closed on time. Words cannot express how thankful we are to George for all hard work to make it the purchase of our new home a reality. I would definitely recommend George to all my friends and family... Read More

    First Home

    George Pantelaras was incredible throughout our home buying experience. As first time home-buyers, my husband and I had no clue what we were doing. George was always kind enough to walk us through, in detail what we were doing, and why we were doing it. I would recommend him to anyone!

    Amazing

    George Pantelaras came through just in the knick of time for me! I was building a pre-construction home and was persuaded to use the builders mortgage company. Building your first home and being a first time home buyer at the same time can be pretty intimidating an overwhelming to say the least! I was leaning on this builders loan officer to lead me in the right direction, however the ball was dropped many times on their end. Needless to say, I found George Pantelaras through a referral source and he was highly recommended! And now I can see why! He held my hand throughout the whole process, and had my back all the way to closing. He turned it around for me just in time to close and even helped me negotiate with the builder at times. He's awesome at what he does, and goes above and beyond for his clients! I highly recommend George Pantelaras to anyone in need of a caring, dependent loan officer... Read More
