I wanted to write you and tell you how wonderful Sara & I feel being in our new home.
We both thought at first that this was going to be a crazy process but turned out to be quite easy.
The easy part was working with you and your staff. This endeavor is daunting to begin with, but you all
made the process of buying a home a lot less frustrating. Your experience in this field Josh put me at
ease through the tough parts of waiting for the home to close. You were very kind to be with me during
closing and we both enjoyed the bottle of wine that you bought us. I canít thank you enough for being
there every step of the way!! Please feel free to stop over and check out what we do with the place.
Thanks again Josh for all your hard work and time.
Jeff & Sara Bergadine, Portland Oregon
Great! Thanks again Josh! Excellent service and a great result. We appreciate it!
Roshan & Nikki Patel, Portland Oregon
I just wanted to thank you for helping me. Everything you advised me to do was right on. To help me through the mess, even after the loan had closed, was beyond the call of duty. I'll certainly pass your name along to anyone in search of a mortgage.
Mark Bartlett, North Portland
Now that we're finally settled in to our home in Troutdale, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your efforts to accomplish the closing of our home. Your assistance in helping me acquire the necessary Certification of Eligibility from the Veterans Administration assured that the closure process proceeded as quickly as could be hoped for. Thank you for your assistance!
Barry DePan, Troutdale Oregon
Plum Tree did an outstanding job in making my request for a second mortgage a reality. In a market where everybody is trying to outperform everyone else, he made the whole process simple, and understandable. He managed to explain in easy terms the entire process, and also get me the best deal possible. Thanks for having the business sense to hang on to man like my loan officer, he's an asset worth keeping!!

Not only did the closing go without a hitch but it went as you had advised. This was my wife's first time to experience buying a house in the states and was worried you couldn't find financing that would be completed 100%. Now we are convinced that Plum Tree was the better way to go. In the future if we buy or do any real estate dealings we will for sure give you a call. Again thanks for your help.

Speed and efficiency!

(Yes they are related!)
Easy to work with, provided many options. Very flexible.
David & Melissa Han, Lake Oswego
Plum Tree scoured through hundreds of products to find the perfect loan for my needs. They secured a great rate that was considerably lower than anything else out there.

Great service and updates!
Ann Manion, Portland, Oregon
You guys did it! I liked your friendliness, ease of contact and getting prompt replies.
Steve P., Portland, Oregon
I am so glad Plum Tree was on my side when I decided to refinance my house this year. They saved me more money than I even thought possible. It later became clear to me how they had really gone the extra mile to find me the absolute best deal. I was also impressed with how fast and easy it was to get all my questions answered, and how friendly and courteous they are. I have since already referred other colleagues to Plum Tree, and can't image having gone anywhere else.
Karan Randhava MD, Portland, Oregon
Thank you for helping us when our other bank backed out of their loan commitment to us. It was a shock after having everything approved for almost six months and then two weeks before closing to find out they were withdrawing their financing. We are very appreciative that you were able to step up with an identical financing package and do it so quickly that we were able to keep the same closing date. We would certainly recommend you to any friends who were looking for financing.
Bob & Joyce McNiesh, Seattle, Washington
Plum Tree's first quote exceeded our expectations as we had received prior quotes from other mortgage brokers in Portland Oregon. They got the appraisal completed in a very short period of time and though escrow took a while, they kept their commitment to the interest rate and extended the lock [for free]. They guided us through emails and telephone calls even after escrow was closed and answered all queries promptly and to our satisfaction. We highly recommend Plum Tree's services to anyone who would like to purchase or refinance their property.
Ziva & Jacob Abraham, Lake Oswego, Oregon
You know what you are doing. You're quick and efficient and easy to work with.
Luke Schroeter, SW Portland, Oregon
Thanks for doing such a good job!
Madeleine Rose, NW Portland, Oregon
Plum Tree gave us lots of options and was fantastic about explaining the pros and cons about each option. Because of that, I have no doubt we made the best decision for our situation. Plum Tree was patient and could explain things to us and I appreciate that. Thanks Plum Tree!
Donna Stiles, SE Portland, Oregon
We were most impressed with the prompt service and relative ease in obtaining a home loan through Plum Tree Mortgage. Our financial needs were met within the time fram prescribed, largely due to the perserverence and diligence displayed by the mortgage broker -- Josh Leake. We were completely satisfied with all aspects of the services provided and would have no reservations, whatsoever, in recommending Plum Tree Mortgage to other potential home buyers.
Susan and Jack Melin, Bend, Oregon
Plum Tree was very accommodating and east to work with.
Richard Cassar, SE Portland, Oregon
We were only a few days from signing paperwork for a refinance with a nationally known firm when I received a call from Plum Tree. What he had to say was music to my ears. Plum Tree presented a great rate, very reasonable costs, and un expediated timeframe for completing the process. Plum Tree was a pleasure to work with, the refinance was funded in a timely fashion, and I saved a lot of money. I'd highly recommend Plum Tree Mortgage.
Michael R. Wiltsey, SW Portland, Oregon
I was very frustrated by the time I came to Plum Tree Mortgage. I couldn't understand why I was hitting a brick wall because I wanted to buy a "fixer-upper". Plum Tree was able to examine far more avenues and possibilities than a bank! I am not a corporation or a developer. I just wanted to get this house, and contribute to that neighborhood, and make it a good home. It was straight-forward, and Plum Tree informed me of every step along the way. I will definitely recommend him to my friends.
Kit Thompson, NE Portland, Oregon
Thank you, thank you!! Prior to finding you [Plum Tree Mortgage] every loan agent I dealt with tried to sell me a loan that worked best for them -- repeatedly ignoring my specific requests. Finally I came across your web-site and took a chance at calling you. I am glad I did! You were the only one to accept my terms and needs without any hassle! Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for being a breath of fresh air in this chaotic loan world!
Ragnar Rosinkranz, Pearl District in Portland, Oregon
I like working with Plum Tree, because their customer service is great! I was working with another broker, but Plum Tree changed my mind because they really worked 110% for me. They were very responsive, getting back to my questions and requests ASAP in the same day, vs. the next day service from the other broker. I also felt Plum Tree is sincere, and very flexible to work with. And they were fast and on the ball. I had a quick closing and the schedule felt tight, but they managed the schedule to perfection so I could close on time.
Wei Huang, SW Portland, Oregon
you so much for changing the rhythm, picking up the tempo and bringing
back the fun and joy of buying our first home. (Note: Glenn and Rebecca
had timing problems with another lender...)
Glenn and Rebecca, North Portland, Oregon
[Plum Tree] was quick and helped me get into my new home with no hassle.
[Plum Tree] was available at all hours and even came to the signing. [Plum

Julie Almquist, SE Portland, Oregon
[Plum Tree] was always available and he
took extra time to explain everything in detail. I appreciate his earnest
approach. Thanks [Plum Tree].
Jonathan and Lori Mulcare, NE Portland, Oregon
Some friends referred us to [Plum Tree] and he didn't disappoint.
He was helpful and accessible throughout the underwriting process, returning
our calls promptly and answering all of our questions. He was also FAST
(unlike the banks we inquired with) and the fees were reasonable. We
managed to knock 23% off our monthly mortgage payment...that's a lot
Ron and Nicole, SW Portland, Oregon
Our other lender dropped the ball. We almost lost our home. [Plum
Tree] came in and even made our
closing date. Thanks for all of your help [Plum
Nick B., Woodburn, Oregon
