What Our Customers Say About Me

Kathleen C. Oct-21
“I have worked with Mark Hedman and Anne Hendricks a few times refinancing my house. They both very easy to work with. They are knowledgeable, reasonable, easy to reach, responsive and pleasant. I will use this team again no matter where they work. A+++”
Scott C. Oct-21
“I reached out to Mark, asking if he could provide some initial figures for a cash-out refinance. Mark took it from there, providing my figures and answering any questions. Mark was available throughout the entire process and made sure I knew exactly what to expect. He also went beyond expectations a couple of times when I requested that he check on certain information. The whole process went extremely well. I would say that it was the smoothest refinance I've done.”
Alfian T. Oct-21
“I can recommend Mark Hedman unreservedly. We were working with an unresponsive HOA which resulted in delays, but Mark persevered and got the loan approved regardless. I could not be more thankful.

“We have worked with Mark and his team for 3 home purchases now and I can't thank them enough for all their help. They are incredibly responsive, completely reasonable with their requests, and they make sure everything gets done on time. Mark recently helped us through a challenging situation when we started the loan application process with an online lender (that was a mistake!) who dropped the ball on our file with a little over a week left before our close date. Mark and team were able to get us from application to closing in record time, keeping us from losing our new home. We know they worked really hard to make that happen and we will be forever grateful! Don't mess around with other lenders - just let Mark and his fantastic team take care of you.”

“The additional COVID underwriting requirements were egregious and capricious. Things I've NEVER been asked for in the past were mandatory, and if my long history of self employment had shown any seasonal weakness, I'd have been in a real pickle.

“Mark Hedman and Anne Hendricks are a great team whom I have used for years, and to whom I have referred and will continue to refer many people. In addition to their great service I would say I was pleased to have been able to avoid an appraisal, and was pleased to have been able to get a lower rate than my initial lock. I was not impressed at all with the web site and it's responsiveness, or tracking. I would get rid of it! It was much better to send documents directly to Anne and Mark via secured email. Thanks, Tom Lombardo”

Bill Cunningham - Sales Manager
“Working with Mark and team was a very good experience for me. I worked with Mark on a construction loan; working with Mark was the easiest part of the rebuild. He and his team worked with the builder, were patient with the 8 months of Permit process, and provided the necessary guidance for me to close the loan. I would recommend Mark to friends and family. The process wasn't scary (as I thought it may be) nor was it difficult. Mark has even been helpful after the loan was closed - great service!”

Andy P - Operations Manager
“Mark delivered in a challenging and competitive environment to land our offer with confidence and closing within 2 weeks. Mark and his team helped us navigate and innovate in the underwriting process, added prompt and personal experience with the offer and agents, and hit the deadline to close. It’s never an easy experience and Mark & team helped us survive. ”
Bernhard H Weigl - Director, Center for In Vitro Diagnostics, Intellectual Ventures/Global Good
“Mark and his team were super helpful in getting me several mortgages over the years. Most of the time the process was painless and he was able to obtain great rates. One time a complexity arose from the fact that a modification I expected to (and relied on) to make on the mortgage was no longer possible because the mortgage was sold to a different lender. Realizing the problem, Mark was willing and able to refinance my loan for free to correct the problem. Overall, I will continue to work with Mark and can recommend him highly for anyone looking for a mortgage. Bernhard”
Carol VanHorn - Retired
“Mark Hedman did an awesome job. Mark is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. I will recommend Mark to family and friends. Blessings Always, Don and Carol ”
Linda Lorraine Filippi - Nursing Faculty, Shoreline Community College
“Mark was able to refinance our home loan under the HARP program, reduce our interest rate, and give us a 15-year loan term (which we wanted). Subsequently, he was able to open a line of credit for remodeling our home, gaining even more equity than he initially quoted. Mark is a man of integrity and honesty. He is always polite and kind, looking out for my best interests. He is timely and does what he says he will do. He has amazing staff supporting him in his work. His office is conveniently located to where I live making it easy to sign paperwork. I highly recommend Mark to anyone with mortgage needs. He is skilled and knowledgeable about the products out there and time lines for best interest rates. Linda Filippi, MSN, RN, CMSRN ”

Chuck Edwards - Sr Manager, Tech Business Development, AWS
“Mark is knowledgeable, thoughtful and a great listener who has always taken care to understand my end goals and worked hard to help me move in the right direction.
