Client Testimonials

“My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Paul Spateri in refinancing our home mortgage. From beginning to end, he was informative, extremely thorough and attentive to our financial needs, thus making sure that we were getting the best deal possible. This is our second experience working with Paul and we would highly recommend Paul and his company to anyone.”

Allison Schouten Homeowner

“I wanted to let you know how much the homeowner at our recent closing raved about Nancy Hall. I feel very fortunate that we were introduced to her and that she has been such an invaluable asset to many of my clients.”

Myron Horbachevsky, EBA Lux House Hunters

“I have been doing business with the Advantage Group on the title and mortgage side for over a decade. Advantage Title and Mortgage Advantage have always provided me and my clients with great service and attention, and consistently exceed my expectations.”

Lee Schwartz, Esq. Lee A. Schwartz & Associates, PLLC

“We were looking at so many options for our refinance - 15 year vs. 30 year, combining two mortgages into one. We tried working with our bank, but became very frustrated at their inflexibility. We decide to consult Paul because he had helped us so much with our first mortgage almost 10 years ago. Paul gave us the pros and cons of every option we discussed, and was always open to running multiple scenarios for us. Paul found the right financing plan for our needs, and successfully guided us through every step of the way.”

Greg & Lisa Ackerman Homeowner

“Nick Racanelli was my mortgage adviser for a home on the bay that I purchased on July 19, 2013. As I'm sure he would agree, it was an incredibly complicated and at times, difficult transaction. Mainly, this was due to severe damage to the house caused by Hurricane Sandy. The storm hit just before I was due to go to contract on the house! It would be nearly a year before we - the seller, the lender and I - could get to a point where it was possible to close. Indeed, there were plenty of occasions when it looked as though the chances of ultimately owning the house were between slim and none. It is without any question that the reason I own this house today is because of Nick Racanelli. There is simply no possible way this outcome would have been reached if he were not gently steering all parties - via countless calls, messages, updates and most critically, his very sound advice. He is a first-class professional whose trust he carefully earned and will keep for many years to come. After the experience we just came through together, I would not consider working with anyone else for a mortgage. Period.”

Amy Liu Homeowner

“I am very thankful for Nick Racanelli's professional, responsive and honest assistance with the whole mortgage process from beginning to end. He made himself available to me via any method of my choice - email, business phone or cell phone, which I appreciated and took advantage of. Nick even stayed in touch with me during his vacation over the summer. I am grateful for all of Nick's work he devoted to my family's purchase of this home. ”

Ian Dunst Homeowner

“I have three criteria for referrals: that my clients receive absolutely top-notch service, that they get the most cost-effective deal possible, and that they come back to me with rave reviews. Mortgage Advantage always exceeds my expectations. My clients have referred their friends and family, and returned to Mortgage Advantage for all their ongoing needs - new home purchases, refinancing, second homes, and investment properties. I cannot recommend Mortgage Advantage highly enough.”

Andrew Zwerman, CPA Wagner & Zwerman LLP

“I have been referring clients, friends and family to Mortgage Advantage since 1996. I continue to work with Mortgage Advantage as Steven Schwartz, one of the founders of the Mortgage Advantage, is by far the most knowledgeable, professional and honest mortgage broker I have ever worked with. His personal attention to our clients is a great comfort to me. I have the utmost confidence recommending Mortgage Advantage knowing that my clients are handled with exceptional customer service and professionalism.”

Paul J. Schatz Rosenberg, Fortuna & Laitman, LLP

“While the task of simultaneously selling two homes and buying another was daunting, at best, the team at Mortgage Advantage made it all seem easy. They not only performed several magic acts [to help us get the job done], they did it with professionalism and an expertise that - like our mortgage - was "jumbo!" We are beyond grateful that Advantage was watching our backs.”

Alan Spen and Jodi Andersen Homeowners

“I recently worked with Paul Spateri for my mortgage loan. He was recommended to me by my daughter and son-in-law when he helped them with the purchase of their home. From the beginning he has shown exemplary professionalism in handling my loan. He was straight forward and very helpful in explaining the process from start to finish. We hit a few snags in the process but in the end I was able to get my dream home. I could not have done this without him. I highly recommend Paul and his company to my friends. I have made another friend for life!”

Brenda Dennis Homeowner

“Buying a first home is incredibly stressful, and for someone without a financial background securing a mortgage is the most confusing part. Steve Schwartz was able to boil down all the rates and acronyms into logical information we needed to make the right decision. Steve went out of his way to make sure we got the best available loan at the lowest possible rate. I recommend Steve to anyone in the market for a mortgage.”

Caulden & Cathy Cannizzaro Homeowner

“I continually recommend Steve Schwartz at Mortgage Advantage to my valued clients. I appreciate his expertise and ability and willingness to work with more than one lender to help us to reach our goals. His dedication and commitment to servicing his client's requirements, coupled with his mortgage and real estate law expertise as an attorney himself, make him unique in the industry and invaluable.”

Philip Blumenfeld, Esq. Attorney

“We would like to acknowledge the exceptional service that we received during the entire refinancing process. Nicholas Racanelli's professionalism and knowledge of the industry was impressive and truly appreciated. In the past, we have had experience with several others banks and have found the process frustrating and tedious. Nicholas went above and beyond to ensure that all of our needs were met and that everything was handled thoroughly and efficiently. We have and will continue to recommend him in the future.”

Rich & Sharon D'Andrea Homeowners

“As a CPA, I've referred clients to Nancy Hall for many years with great results. I recently had the opportunity to use her for my own transaction, and now I know why my clients have always been thrilled! She's thorough, timely, personable and most importantly knowledgeable. I'll certainly be referring her for a long time to come.”

Glen A. Ross CPA, CVA Ross & Company CPA, PLLC

Mark Cox Homeowner

“I have worked with Nancy Hall on a number of occasions and she is a true professional. She takes the time to ensure that her clients understand the entire process of closing on a mortgage and is always willing to explain things until the client is comfortable. Patient, kind and understanding - Nancy is exactly the type of person you want working on your behalf. I would never work with anyone else!”

Scott Baker Homeowner

“I cannot praise Steve Schwartz at Mortgage Advantage enough for his help in securing a reverse mortgage for our family. Steve was a wealth of information and he helped educate me and my family as to why a reverse mortgage was the best option for our particular situation. After conferring with Steve and our financial advisor everyone agreed that a reverse mortgage was the perfect solution to help allow our mother to stay in her home.”

Edward H. Burnbaum, Esq. Novack Burnbaum Crystal, LLP

“The service and personal attention we received from Nancy Hall was exceptional and beyond what we were expecting! Her knowledge of the local and national market and her commitment in finding us the best rate helped us in our search for our dream home. As first time home buyers everything was new to us and the most important thing we wanted was someone we could trust. She was there for us every step of the way. I'm glad we chose her services and would recommend Nancy to anyone buying a home.”

Eric and Vicki Huang Homeowners

“I refer all of my clients to Mortgage Advantage, and I trust their work so much that I have obtained all of my own loans through them as well. They do an exhaustive search to get you the best rate and find the best mortgage program available. Their ability to structure solutions and find advantageous financing sets them apart.”

Matthew C. Lamstein, Esq. Lazer Aptheker Rosella & Yedid, P.C.

“My fiance and I purchased our first home last year and going in we didn't understand anything about the mortgage process. Steve was so knowledgeable and attentive and made us feel comfortable and more educated. Everything went smoothly, and he found us the lowest possible interest rate. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Mortgage Advantage made us feel like we were one of their top clients.”

Erin McNamee & Adam Goodnoff-Cernese Homeowners

“Plain and simple, Nancy Hall is the nicest person and the best at what she does. We had a very bumpy road during our entire home buying process, due to circumstances out of Nancy's control. Nancy stayed on top of all parties to make sure everything stayed on track in order to meet our tight deadline to close. We appreciate everything she did for us and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to obtain financing. Thanks again Nancy!”

Mr. & Mrs. Hernandez Jr. Homeowners

“Nancy Hall is an exceptional mortgage broker. She kept us advised every step of the mortgage process, explaining the reason for every obscure document requested from us. Her manner was always friendly, and she was always available to answer every question we had. Previously, we had gone directly to banks for our mortgages. We don't believe that we will ever do that again as long as Nancy is around to assist in the process. We will strongly recommend Nancy to our friends in the future, and we will be certain to use her the next time we require new financing. She is remarkable and a five-star broker, and any organization should be proud to have her working for them. ”

Will Bratton and Sharyn Felder Homeowners

“My boyfriend and I contacted Nancy Hall when we were looking for a house. Nancy was so helpful and answered every question we had. She even guided me every step of the way through a credit problem, and offered us great advice to save more money for our down payment. We were able to do everything through email and when we called her with any questions she was quick to get back in touch with us. I would highly recommend Nancy and her team to anyone looking for a mortgage or thinking about purchasing a home. ”

Shannon Poncet & Kurt Cornelis Homeowners

“I have worked with Nancy Hall for many years on refinances and mortgages on our home and businesses. Nancy has always been professional and knowledgeable in every area of lending. I would highly recommend her for any of your mortgage needs.”

Mary Ann Hurd Homeowner

“My husband and I recently used Nancy for the purchase of our first home. We worked with her for months getting our credit history in order, and she was always available for the hundreds of questions we had. She really cared about our finances and steered us in the best direction. I don't know how we would've gotten through the whole experience without Nancy. We are very picky people who are not easily impressed, but if you want to feel comfortable with a mortgage broker who knows what they are doing then Nancy is for you.”

Seth and Victoria Rosen Homeowners

“Nancy is very knowledgeable, professional, and very dedicated to her work. It was a pleasure working with her. She guided my husband and I though the entire mortgage process and helped us get a great rate. She is very organized and precise. She made the mortgage process easy and offered great guidance throughout the entire process. She was always quick to respond all of our questions and was always easily accessible. We absolutely loved working with her and highly recommend her.”

Yinet and Christopher Conde Homeowners

“My husband and I worked with Nancy Hall to obtain a mortgage to assist in the purchase of our new home. From the beginning, Nancy was a true advocate for us, always explaining difficult financial terms in easy-to-understand language. She made sure to find us a reputable lender at an excellent interest rate, even amid the financial challenges caused by COVID-19. Working with her and her team was an easy process, even with the seemingly endless array of paperwork needed to secure a competitive loan for us. We weren't always happy when we received yet another required stack of documents to complete, but Nancy always explained the importance of submitting everything at a rapid pace to ensure we secured the funding we needed - all within our timetable of finding a permanent home. Her guidance & support was critical in this difficult process.... We benefited greatly from Nancy's wealth of knowledge and hard work. It made the job of getting a loan much easier than if we attempted to secure the funding on our own. Thank you Nancy! You are DEFINITELY HIGHLY recommended!”

Harold and Beth Stern Homeowners

“Don't go anywhere else. Nancy is the best. I highly recommend her services. The best I have ever had the pleasure to work with she does it all soup to nuts. ”

Tom and Alison Paisley Homeowners

“Nancy was a blessing to work with. She is very knowledgeable and is always there to advise you in the best direction. We had a great experience with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home purchase. My wife and I are first time home buyers and the process surely is intimidating, and she was always there to reassure us we were on the right path and things would work out. When we got down to closing, she was able to secure us a lower interest rate than expected. She is an absolute sweetheart to work with and always looks out for your best interest. USE HER!”

TJ and Keriann Rodriguez Homeowners

“OUR HERO: I’ll admit - it was a little more stress than we originally anticipated, but at the end of the day Nancy deliverer far beyond what we ever expected. She was there for us every step of the process, quickly responded to every email, call, and stupid questions we had as first time home buyers. Nancy’s hard work and dedication helped save us over $100,000 on a 30 year loan compared to what other lenders were offering. Look no further for your mortgage broker needs as Nancy will not steer you wrong!!! ”
