    Mark is extremely professional. He listened to my situation and immediately had creative ways to get my loan. He gave me several options. I have been working with mortgage brokers for 20 years, as I am a Real Estate Broker. Mark was the best mortgage broker I have encountered.

    Great experience working with Mark Balenger

    (1) (0)

    Mark Balenger was thorough, polite and knowledgable about the process for obtaining a mortgage on our 2nd home. Several unique circumstances made this a longer than usual process but Mark kept everything in place and moving forward until closing. Closing was quick and painless once everything was approved. Thanks Mark!

    Mark Balenger Was Simply Superb on My Loan

    (1) (0)

    Mark Balenger was beyond excellent in his responsiveness and customer service. He was superb! I am self-employed with complicated tax matters and often felt like a square peg trying to fit into the round hole of mortgage qualification rules and regulations. While following every rule, Mark Balenger found a solution for every unusual situation with my loan. And he did it with the most reassuring and helpful "no worries, we'll just do X or get the underwriters Y or I'll get a senior person to approve Z." It was I who worried that Mark was spending so much time on my situation that he might be making less than minimum wage on my loan. His response "This is my career, I love doing this, I love making it work." I'm so glad I had Mark Balenger because I doubt it could have worked without him... Read More

    Great Refi Experience With Mark Balenger

    (1) (0)

    Mark Balenger was great to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable and really good about keeping us informed about what to expect at each stage of the process. Mark was always really easy to reach with questions, and always made sure we were comfortable and informed when we had to make decisions. I appreciated never getting any sort of a hard sell from him. The rates and fees were competitive, but I really liked the way Mark laid out different possibilities so I could choose the loan that made the most sense for my situation.

    Hassle free not like the bank!

    Was amazed to stumble across Mark Blenger and Royal United Mortgage through Lending Tree, I was immediately put at ease with the entire process with Mark in the first 5 minutes of speaking to him on the phone. He was very informative and personable and understood my position with my existing loan and explained the entire process to move forward from an extremely stressful position with my leander to a relaxed and stress free position with Royal United Mortgage. The process of my refi went smoothly with hassle free friendly service provided by Mark and his team at Royal United Mortgage. Hands down I would recommend them over any of the other lenders I spoke with from Lending Tree or other institutions I spoke with prior to finding Mark at Royal United mortgage. If ever your in the need of any type loan, Marks the man... Read More

    A True Professional

    (1) (0)

    Mark is a true professional in every way. When my husband I and I decided to purchase an investment property, Mark could not have been more knowledgeable or helpful. He was able to answer all of our questions and make the entire process almost effortless. He was proactive throughout our application, advising us of what to anticipate and guiding us along the way. It is rare to find anyone as responsive as Mark. As questions arose, he made himself totally accessible to us, regardless of whether it was in the evening or on a weekend. The entire process went very smoothly and took less that four weeks, from our first phone call to closing the loan. This was largely a result of Mark's diligence and experience. Mark was also a pleasure to deal with in every respect and I cannot recommend him highly enough... Read More

    Mark the Mortgage Master.

    (1) (0)

    We found Mark by searching online for a good mortgage lender. After reading some of his reviews, I decided to give him a call and I'm glad I did. We had recently been let down by our major bank. We experienced months and months of frustration jumping through hoops for them. After the first minute of talking to Mark, I felt confident he was the right guy to deal with. Many loan officers seem pushy and salesy. Mark is the opposite of this. He is extremely personable, patient, informative, and talks intelligently about the process and your available options. When I didn't understand something, he took his time explaining it until we were both on the same page. Mark had us approved within 12 days, which was nothing short of a miracle compared to our previous experience. The whole process took under a month, and we have just been wired our money. Overall we are very Impressed with Mark and Royal United Mortgage, we've been recommending him to anyone interested in applying for home finance. ... Read More
