PARAMOUNT HAS YOUR BACK!!!

I had no idea what the mortgage world would look like. All the jargon was confusing and complex!! That was until I met Steve!! I'm talking about great customer service & attentiveness. You know-how just like in healthcare, great bedside manner is hard to fin***.it is a skill and not really taught, so is GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! ALL LOAN OFFICERS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL!!! You can tell when someone genuinely cares about what you're going through, and someone who genuinely cares about the impact his role is. He made the process extremely easy, smooth, and fast. He also helped me understand the process through and through and answered all my why's!!! I ENDED UP CLOSING ON TIME!!!! He is extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs and gave me a heads up of any roadblocks ahead. Communication is KEY, always and he has done an amazing job through and through!! Did I mention he is an ARMY VET!!!! Best experience ever and I will ensure that all my family & friends choose Paramount Bank because of him and his team!!
Bravo Zulu Steve, please do not ever change!!
**IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING PARAMOUNT BANK, ASK FOR STEVE AND ONLY STEVE NEYMAN!!**

Bait and switch

Was recommended to us by our financial advisor and initially we where very happy. Super responsive and quoted us a great rate for a pre-qual. Than when it came time to close and finalize all the sudden our rate went up a full percentage point. He claimed rates went up. I verified this and while they did go up about .5 percentage points they where never as low as he quoted me. I do not trust lenders that do that sort of thing!

An Unprofessional Embarrassment

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m not sure where to start with Jonathan. First conversation was excellent filled with empty promises of professionalism and communication, both of which vanished shortly after. We started January 12th with a closing date of February 26. I was told anytime you need anything call me text me I’m here Sunday night at 8pm it doesn’t matter. That soon became me practically begging for paramounts business. At one point waiting 13 days for a simple email that was essential. 6 days before closing I was asked to give them an extra 3 week which I reluctantly agreed too and sent emails. The day after that I was notified that the loan was unapproved and they were sorry. I waited 39 days, 6 days before closing to tell me sorry unapproved. Your time is way to valuable to have it wasted by these clowns who won’t even look at your file or start your loan till day 39. I’m embarrassed to have wasted 39 days and look like an idiot due to unprofessionalism of Jonathan and this whole company. If you give this man your business just know that there are many other loan officers out there who would be privileged to have your business and won’t take it for granted.
