ZELVY/REFI

By 

from Rockville, MD

Verified Buyer

Comments about Scott Jacobs:

Thanks to Scott we had a worry free, refi with cash out experience.
We were nervous and Scott made everything go so quickly we did not have much time to overthink everything. All of his staff was efficient and competent.
Kept in touch with me everyday with updates.
Excellent loan officer. Can't wait to use him again in the next 6 months to redo this whole process.

From start to finish our mortgage process has been a great experience with Scott and the Embrace Team.

We were treated with respect and knew and understood every step of the process prior to each action. Everyone we spoke to and dealt with online was efficient and effective.

I can recommend with confidence Scott Jacobs and the Embrace Team.

Excellent team, good software used

By

Comments about Scott Jacobs:

I was referred to scott by one of my colleagues for my re-finance and I am glad he did. With Scott, there are no surprises. He explained
the whole process, the time it would take, the documentation that would be required upfront. Scott is always a phone call
or an email away to answer any questions. At one point, I had a question at 10:30 in the night and emailed him, got a reply
within 2 minutes.

Most of the communication in terms of exchanging documents can be done through their secure website which is very easy to use.
I found it very useful to be able to upload all the documents, electronically sign most of them which saves significant time
and effort. The whole team is very diligent in reviewing the documents and letting you know the next steps...

In short, Team Jacobs is an excellent team to be on your side when you do a re-finance.

Best Refi ever! Scott is amazing!!!

By 

from Potomac, MD, USA

Comments about Scott Jacobs:

Best Refi ever! Scott is professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy and responsive. The entire process was made so easy with Scott's help and Embrace's electronic forms. We would know. This is the second time we are refinancing with Scott, but the 5th time since we have been in our house. Scott looked out for us. When the interest rates dropped to a point where it was beneficial to refinance again, he called us. We didn't have to chase him down to get in on the lowest rates historically. We doubt that the interest rates will ever go any lower than Scott was able to get for us, but if we refinance again, it will definitely be with Scott. In short, we HIGHLY recommend Scott Jacobs and Embrace Home Loans.

Comments about Scott Jacobs:

Scott was amazing. Always there to answer any questions that I might have or that my husband needed clarification on.
My realtor was very impressed with him and hopes that all she could refer others to him because "he was wonderful".
