BEWARE---DON'T USE THEM

Beware of this company!! My refi has been a nightmare from start to finish. Just to highlight a few of the issues: 4 sets of paperwork sent, all 4 wrong rate, wrong cash back, wrong terms. Time promised didn't happen because they dragged their feet, not us. Told me not to pay Feb mortg then said I had to last minute, cost me a late fee. Said they would wire my cash back funds, didn't do it, sent a check instead which now has a hold on it. Said they would pay the debtors that were part of my refi agreement, didn't do it, sent me checks instead that had no acct numbers or addresses on them and the amounts are wrong. I have been trying to get a call back for 5 days, they won't call me back. Kyle Rendon was processor, made endless mistakes! His boss Marcel wont call me back. I am now filing complaints with HUD, BBB, Attorney Gen******.this is fraud. Seriously, don't use this company, you will definitely be sorry like I am.

Unhappy with the denial

This company only refinance to property owners that property value is $100,000 or more. I wish I had that information before applying for a refinance of my mortgage. It was a waste of my time and the representative at first direct lending. My property value recently appraised for $ 83,000 not elite enough for this company. Lending tree must not know of this fact. Because it was a recommendation by Lending tree.
