I would recommend John anyone who wants a smooth home buying and mortgage experience. ”

“My great American dream now a reality, thanks to my dream REMN team of John and Nadine. It's a cliche that the one biggest investment and decision we will make is buying a house, and more so for a first time home buyer like me. John made what seemed to be a difficult decision and process a lot less complicated. From the initial consultation to the application process and all the challenges in between, all his professional yet personal recommendations and advice made it all possible to make it to one very happy closing day. I will surely recommend your services to anyone who has the same dream, and tell them to believe that it is possible with the REMN dream team led by John on their side. ”

“I would highly recommend John Passano to be your Mortgage Loan Originator. From the moment I spoke to John to the actual day of my closing he was there for me 110%, answering all of my questions and supporting me through all of my concerns, offering me the best possible options for some difficult financial decisions that needed to be made. I felt comfortable in his ability to help me with my future as a home owner. I now have someone that I can, with confidence, recommend to someone who is in need of a Mortgage. I am very confident that John will take care of you just as well as he has taken care of me.”
