Turning dreams into reality.

Everyone is refinancing right now, you'd think that would slow them down. NOPE! Not Crown, not Jeff Coole! One email to Jeff and by the end of the day I had all my docs submitted and loan started. A few days later my loan analyst Rachelle Lindsay provided me with my Approval letter and set my closing date. Within a month my refinance was closed and I couldn't be happier! Everything was completed remote/digitally except for the final closing, and with that I was in and out of the title company's office in 30 mins. Great rates! LOW fees! Great People!

I never thought I’d say this about any mortgage company, but We LOVE Crown Mortgage!!! Katie was knowledgable, amazingly thorough and didn’t miss a beat as she swooped in and saved the deal after the last lender fell through the day before closing. We did an expedited close -10 DAYS!!! Araceli worked flawlessly to get us to the finish line, and we are now busily moving into our forever home. We LOVE YOU Crown Mortgage and look forward to working with you and referring you to everyone for years to come!

Crown Mortgage saved our dream home. We looked for a home that our family could grow in for almost 8 months and found our dream home. We put in an offer and it was accepted! Because the home was a foreclosure and the boiler could not be started, the other lender refused to close. We were heart broken. Another offer on our house came in the next day and was again accepted. Our dream was gone until, that deal was unable to close as well.

Our realtor told us about Crown - how different they are from everyone else and convinced us to take another shot at our dream with Crown’s help. We called and discussed our situation with Crown’s loan officer who came out after hours to meet with us the very next day. Our loan officer was great to work with as he took the time to actually get to know what was important to us and answer every question we had, unlike our previous lender who only told us what she thought was important.

Crown was not only able to approve our loan the next day, but they also worked diligently with us through all the repair issues that came up. Not only did the boiler not start, the house was not properly winterized causing several burst pipes. Thanks to Crown’s “Repairs After Closing” program our dream home became our reality.

After searching with my realtor, we finally found the home I wanted and we wrote the offer. Everything was going great until thirty days later when my bank told me that the underwriter could not approve my loan due to only being on my job six months, even though I had been in the same field for over five years.

My realtor suggested I call Crown Mortgage to see if they could help. I spoke to the loan officer at Crown and he explained that they were able to look at my loan differently since they are the actual lender and do not sell the loans.

Crown approved my loan in one hour and we closed on time! Thank you Crown Mortgage for helping me buy my first home when other banks said it couldn’t be done!
