Providing Home Loan Education:

You and your goals are the focus of the homebuying process. That’s my approach with every customer and that means keeping you informed about the ins-and-outs of your loan. Throughout the entire process, you will never be out of the loop. You’ll learn about:

  • What exactly goes into your mortgage payment
  • Asset Verification
  • How interest rates and other variables can affect your financial future

Let me help you make the right move. I can ensure a simple, easy and affordable loan process to get you the home you want so you can start investing in yourself!


Advantages of Buying Over Renting:

It’s time to move from paying your landlord to building your own wealth. If you’re renting in the Tri-State area, I can help you take advantage of homeownership benefits such as:

  • Building equity instead of giving money to a landlord
  • Available tax deductions on mortgage payments
  • Possibly paying the same or less in mortgage than in rent

I highly recommend Joseph and his team and will go back to him again when its time!”
Cheryl Stony Point, NY
“Our heartfelt thanks goes out to Joe May and the HomeBridge team! My husband and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our dream possible in buying a new home! Joe went above and beyond normal customer service, overseeing the approval process each step of the way. He also ensured that we got the best possible result! I know that he really worked hard on our loan and showed concern with getting us the best possible rate. We found Joe to be very informative and willing to take the time to help us understand the process, throughout the life cycle from start to finish. Buying a home can be stressful. Joe gained our trust by ensuring we felt comfortable with the process and meeting his commitments to close the deal. Joe's team, along with the underwriters, were extremely helpful and courteous throughout the process. I am looking forward to working with Joe and his team in the future. I highly recommend him to anyone, including my friends and family. You are top-notch!!”
Jonathan Putnam Valley, NY

No matter what challenges came up, they always knew what to do next. I am now a proud homeowner. I got a great rate. I closed on the home in March 2015, and I am just so thankful for HomeBridge. Joe and his team are on point, and they always respond quickly and professionally. Thanks Joe! Oh, and also they give you small gifts in between. I got a gift card.”
Jenna Pearl River, NY

We would highly recommend Joe to anyone who is looking to buy a home! Thanks for everything Joe!”
Liang Stony Point, NY
“I recently purchased a home in this area. I applied for a mortgage through Joe. During the whole process, I was very happy to work with him. He is very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. He reviewed all the details for me. He always responded to my questions promptly and helped to solve problems. With his help, the mortgage process was very smooth, and the deal closed on time. I will definitely recommend Joe to anyone.”
Jamie New City, NY
“After selling my home in Putnam County, I was in a big rush to find the perfect home in Rockland before my daughter started school in September. Being new to the area, I planned on using a "big bank" mortgage provider until a friend referred me to Joe. I was sold on Joe from the first phone call and couldn't be happier with that decision. Joe literally worked his butt off for my family to get us our home. The available houses were limited and it was a struggle but Joe always managed to get pre approvals over at lightening speed. Joe had spreadsheets with financial breakdowns emailed to me just as fast. He even showed up at a house I was considering for purchase to take a look and assist me with factoring in construction/remodeling costs. I would have never got that individual attention from the "big bank." Once my offer was accepted , Joe once again ran a marathon with me to get to closing before the start of school. We made it with two weeks to spare!! I am so grateful to Joe and his team for all their help.”
Chris Valley Cottage, NY
“I have known Joe for over a decade, and whether it has been refinancing my mortgage or networking, he is always a professional. The current lending environment can be very difficult and confusing. Joe simplifies matters, stays on top of things and gets the job done. If you're looking to purchase a home or refinance, call Joe.”
Stuart Pearl River, NY
“Joe helped my wife and I navigate the difficult and ever-stressful process of purchasing our first home. He walked us through ever step of the process, answering every single one of our questions. He made this experience and enjoyable as it should be as first-time home buyers.”
Anthony G. New City, NY
“Having been a top agent in Rockland & Orange Counties for over 11 years, I have met hundreds of mortgage "professionals." Joe May is one of those REAL-professionals, one I regularly entrust with my buyers and sellers. Clients of The Anthony G Team expect a certain level of professionalism. Getting them in Joe's hands on day 1 is exactly the way to go about it. Whenever I have a question about rates, loan packages, FHA-approved units...he's always there. And he answers in a paragraph, as opposed to a single sentence. His bedside-manner is one of a kind, especially when it comes to first time home buyers. I mean, they love him!! With his mastery-level knowledge of his trade and a welcoming, reassuring disposition...whether you're a seasoned agent, new to the business, or a seller or buyer yourself...you can rest assured...Joe May's got your back.”
Joe Pomona, New york
“I thought my first time buying a home would be a nightmare, but Joe May made it a great experience. He was always a phone call away answering any of my questions fully. I would absolutely recommend Joe And his services to anyone.”
Jennifer Suffern, NY
“My husband and I recently bought our first home with Joe's expertise help! Joe and Denise went above and beyond what was expected of them, without hesitation or compromise. Without their determination and persistence, our deal probably would not have happened. We credit them with the success of buying our home. We are happy to have worked with them, would work with them again, and have referred them to others. Our loan process was easy, smooth and painless! We are positively pleased with the whole process.”
Betsy Garnerville, NY
“I am a very pleased client.  Joe did our mortgage application and we can't be any more grateful and happy to have worked with him. He is just an amazing professional; very knowledgeable, responsible, responsive and diligent which made our application process so smooth and quick. The turn around time was just amazing due to his prompt follow ups. He can make it happen in a very good time frame as long as you follow his instructions and provide information in a timely manner. He will just make it happen!  He will guide you through the process and is always available to answer questions with the best attitude. I can't thank him and his team enough for a great job performed and for making our dream come true.  Thank you, Joe.  You really rock!”
Bob Tarrytown, NY
“I met Joe through BNI over 10 years ago and he is a great guy, a great BNI member and past President of his chapter, and a great rep in his industry.”
