"Today, I am sitting in my living room in my very own house because of Jack Schwartz. As a first-time home buyer, I was extremely intimidated by the process; after connecting with a mortgage specialist and an agent who were pushing me to pursue a mortgage amount much larger than I felt comfortable with, I had given up the idea of being a home owner. I wasn't financially ready for what they presented as my only options and I felt the real estate industry was full of people who didn't have my best interest at heart. It was so disappointing. But a friend encouraged me to contact Jack and I reluctantly called him on a Sunday afternoon. He called me right back and made me feel like his niece or something!! :) He offered to give me a first-time home buyer 101 overview. That week, he spent 90 minutes with me explaining everything I needed to know in an easy to understand, upbeat way. "You're going to have a house by Christmas," he told me. (And I did!) I walked away very knowledgeable and confident. Best of all, he explained more mortgage options and we found a way to make it all happen that would make me feel more comfortable. I walked in to Jack's office almost in tears, thinking that it'd be years before I could be a home owner and I walked out all smiles in pursuit of a house again!! He also connected with me with a different agent, the Bruce Webb team (Melanie Kitchen), who were outstanding. Jack is the real deal. A true expert with a great personality and kind heart. Really, this guy knows the ever-changing industry inside and out and he can make things happen that other industry people cannot because they don't have his knowledge. Jack's office team, especially Shella, is awesome, too. Super communicative with amazing attention to detail. I felt I had an A-team. Thank you, Jack!" - J.L.
Jack and Shella,
Just wanted to say thank you for all of your help and patience with my home loan process. Going through a divorce has been one of the most difficult situations in my life, but both of you made this part of the process so easy and smooth. I appreciate the great communication. I will definitely recommend Home Loan Specialists to my family and friends. God bless you both." C.H.
