    Clear communication, great mortgage calculation tool, always willing to help and take the time to talk things through with me. This was my first rodeo with mortgages and I’m very happy with how things went.

    From the beginning, Embrace Home Loans was transparent and responsive to all of our questions. In the pre-qualifying stage, Michael and Eric provided a spreadsheet that broke down all of our costs (principal, interest, closing costs, etc.). They were always available to answer our questions. As we were preparing to close, Michael, Eric, and Jen were able to help finalize all of the documents before closing. The final mortgage and closing costs were significantly less than originally quoted. All of them are friendly and knowledgable about the process. We definitely recommend using them as your lender when purchasing a home.

    Being a first-time homeowner, there is much anxiety about the many unknowns. I felt like I was in very good hands and every bit was explained thoroughly. I also loved having the app, which kept me advised on where we were in the process 24/7. 5-stars from me!

    Michael and his team made buying a house a seamless and enjoyable experience! He made time for us whenever we had questions, even nights and weekends. Michael was also able to secure mortgage rates far below the big banks. We cannot recommend him enough!

    Working with Michael and the team felt personalized and never like my partner and I were a burden. Our questions were always welcomed and responded to promptly. Felt like we were respected and genuinely wanted to be helped.
