Quality Customer Service

It was a pleasure working with Mr. David Ostrowsky Of Block Financial Resources.
Mr. Ostrowsky was knowledgable in all phases of the mortgage process. He was particularily vigilant as to the daily interest rates, as a result, we locked in just before the rates started to increase.
Mr. Ostrowski kept us informed at every stage as well.
There were no "surprises" {financially or otherwise } at the closing.
We would highly recommend Block Financial resources for your mortgage needs.

Committed to a Solid Transaction

I am very pleased to have worked with Block Financial Resources in my recent purchase of a coop in New York. The company's professionals thoroughly understood the process of executing a coop transaction, and were committed to shepherding me through the transaction - not just limited to the financial matters, but also to the administrative matters. And in the end, Block Financial Resources worked to offer me an incredibly low 30-year fixed rate that is well below what I found in the market.

  • LendingTree Customer:


Excellent service. Highly recommended.

It is a super pleasant experience working with Sean Bloch in Block Financial for my mortgage. As a first time home buyer, I knew nothing about this complicated process. Sean professionally guided me from the beginning to the end. I am extremely happy for choosing Sean Bloch as my mortgage broker. Let me list some of the positives working with Sean.

1. Sean is very professional. He knows everything about the mortgage market. He helped us get the best rate and lowest closing fees ever. None of the other rates that my friends get lately is better than mine.
2. Best customer service. Sean is always easy to reach, either by phone or via email. Quick responses, always. He is very patient to all my questions, including some super silly ones. :)
3. Sean always treats you as a real person, a friend, not just customer... He always put his customers first...

I am glad that I chose Sean and Block Financial. I would definitely use them again in the future for my mortgage needs, and highly recommend them to anyone.
