Lending Made Easy, 6/13/2014

I have recently just purchased my first home with Jim. Going into the lending process can be quite a painful process. Jim was not only very knowledgeable, but helped every step of the way in... answering any questions or doubts about getting the correct loan at the best rate possible. I've tried websites like lending tree in my home loan search where you are constantly bombarded by lenders left and right all competing for your business. I was tired of listening to all the sales pitches. Buying a home is stressful enough as it is, Jim gives a more personal experience without the stress of buying the best sales pitch. I got a great rate for my loan with Jim with no regrets.

Couldn't have had a better experience!, 5/04/2014

Jim Harvey is a true professional: extremely knowledgeable about his field yet able to offer authentic, individual attention to his clients. He couldn't have been more accommodating, clear, and... understanding with our concerns about purchasing our first house together in Reynoldstown. I will continue to highly recommend The Bearded Banker to any friends and family who need a stellar lender experience!

Make it simple, almost pleasant

There are few things more painful in the process of purchasing a home than dealing with getting a loan and going through closing. Jim makes it as simple as possible reducing the stress you will undoubtably go through. He makes it look easy, but you realize it is only because he and his team are working hard behind the scenes. Highly recommend using his services.

Couldn't Have Done It Without Him

I worked with Jim recently on my home mortgage. This was not the first time I had worked with Jim. We had previously worked with Jim when I was married on the refinancing of our home but this time I needed his help with moving the mortgage and home into my name since my husband and I divorced. Jim made the painful process as painless as possible and was always there to answer every and all of my thousands of questions. I would highly recommend Jim Harvey to all my friends and family. Thank You Jim for all you did!!

First Time Home Buyers - Look No Further!

I recently purchased my first home earlier this month and was originally working with other mortgage bankers. Although I was ignorant of the process, something just didnít seem right. Then I called Jim! Jim was very responsive and extremely helpful. He answered all of my questions and provided me with additional information that the other guys failed to mention. Jim was professional, friendly and patient. He reduced the stress associated with the unknown, and as such, he made the process fast and easy. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Jim Harvey.

Made the process EASY!

We went to Jim and his team with an impossible task and they went way above the norm in order to make it work. Our pre-approval from another bank ignored several factors so our finances didn't look as good on paper as we thought. Jim kept our expectations in line with reality, but at the same time he worked all-nighters and weekends to make sure we were able to start our family in a nice home. You don't hear a lot about caring and compassionate mortgage brokers, but we definitely felt like Jim cared about the outcome and realized how much getting our first home meant to us. Couple that with his professionalism and experience and I can't see why someone would go to another broker.

A Consumate Professional in the Mortgage Business

My husband and I received excellent service from Jim Harvey aka "the Bearded Banker" on a re-fi on our home - not just once but twice! Jim is an experienced professional in every facet of the loan process. To say he crosses every "T" and dots every "I" is the honest truth. His attention to detail made for a simple loan process and ensured no surprises at closing. In addition to his mortgage professionalism and expertise, Jim is also just a really nice guy. His sincere personality and good humor made working with him a pleasure. We always enjoy his interesting and informative newsletter. We would highly recommend Jim Harvey, "the Bearded Banker" to anyone who needs a mortgage broker with integrity - and that's everyone!

Unusually good mortgage loan experience!!

Having bought and sold several homes over the over the years I expect the mortgage loan process to be painful. Furthermore, most lenders treat borrowers like a "transaction to be processed" instead of a customer. But upon a recommendation, I gave the Bearded Banker Team a try and the ENTIRE process was completed flawlessly. I cannot believe the professionalism I encounter with everyone that answers the phone or with the personnel that worked diligently with me on my latest home purchase. Right from the first contact I could tell Jim Harvey and team were going to provide a good experience. Here is why: -They were prompt to respond to my initial contact. -They are friendly and courteous. -They honored everything stated in their ads. -Jim was willing to explain things to me and educate me about different choices. -Jim proactively discussed the timeline of the loan (estimated closing date, when to lock the rate, etc.). -Discussed when/how rates could change. I cant imagine any borrower's experience would be very different from mine because the behaviors exhibited by the Bearded Banker are the kind are deeply rooted in a commitment to customer satisfaction.

Bearded Banker Gives Great Data for Your Analysis

I have closed 3 home loans with Jim. Every experience has been great. In todayís tricky market, the better information one has the better prepared they are to make decisions. My recent experience benefited from this with timely decisions. Jim also provides a committed customer service level which is very comforting! I recommend the Bearded Banker to anyone looking to secure a home loan.

Highly Recommend the Bearded Banker!

I highly recommend Jim Harvey. Jim was very responsive and returned phone calls very quickly. He was also very helpful in running and explaining different loan options to me. Jim stayed on top of the underwriting process and even attended the closing. I highly recommend. Jim is great!
