We worked with Tara and Richard to refinance our home after struggling for 7 months with one of the 'Big Banks.' They were fantastic! Tara helped coach us through the process even while we were still trying to work with our previous lender. They were always very responsive- even after hours and on weekends! When we finally gave up on the previous lender, Tara and Richard had us closed within 30 days! The process was smooth, uncomplicated and easy with them. We have referred several friends since then and look forward to working with them again in the future. Highly Recommended!
We worked with Tara and her team to refinance our home. The experience was exceptional. Very prompt, professional and service oriented. Application to close was less than one month. The ability to securely apply and share documents electronically was also a plus. We are very satisfied and highly recommend Tara.
In one word, outstanding! The Envoy team, specifically Tara Ryan, were tremendously courteous, understanding, thorough, patient and forthcoming in all transactions. They really make you feel like you are their only client. Communication is key for us and Envoy epitomized and exceeded our expectations along those lines. Explaining concepts and scenarios multiple times never wavering in responses and consistent with their actions and answers. We cannot express in words how happy and satisfied we are with our decision to partner with Envoy mortgage for our financing needs. Thank you!
I found Tara's team on Kudzu.com and read every single review about the company. I chose them because they were not a big bank so I felt I would get more personal attention. They also provided in-house processing, underwriting, funding, etc. Tara and her team was great! This was my first home purchase so I was quite nervous about the entire process. The team was very reponsive to my concerns. I had a judgement against me on my credit report and Richard guided me step by step on how to probably take care of the issue. Glad to say that the issue was taken care of. And we had another issue with verify my income but the team came through once again. My loan went to the underwriters and came out in about a week. The only small concern that I had was during the process I never actually met Tara and her team in person. All our interaction was through email, video emails and phone calls. I thought it was a bit odd never meeting my loan officer in person. But I guess that's how things work now in 2013 :) Overall, it was a great experience.
I used the team for a refi and was very satisfied. They did everything they said they would in a very timely manner. They use an email type video to explain all fees and costs and walk you through every detail. I also liked the use of paperless documentation until closing. All documents were signed online and exchanged instantly via internet saving both parties alot of time and resources. I will use them again.
After missing multiple closing deadlines with a big bank Tara was able to close in 10 days and got a lower rate!
Finally, I am settling into my beautiful condo. I thank Tara Ryan for her work securing the mortgage. Nowadays, the interest rates are fabulous, but for my circumstances, the process was a nightmare. Tara and her team pushed through the red tape long after I wanted to quit. Their diligence was beyond admirable on to amazing. Tara and team really know the ropes for securing a mortgage. I recommend her services without reservation.
This was the best mortgage experience I have ever had. The whole process took only 2 weeks. Tara was amazing and on top of everything. She gave me tons of options and went far above and beyond what I ever expected. The personalized service was out of this world and I honestly thought I was dreaming with how easy the entire process was.
My experience with Tara and the Ryan Mortgage group could not have been better. Tara's efficiency, courtesy, communication, and overall professionalism were outstanding. Should be many more than 5 stars!
Tara is a financial wizard! She got me within twenty cents of the FHA minimum closing costs, and twice called me up to tell me they were reducing my loan-origination and closing costs, even after I'd agreed to her estimates. I had never in my life imagined that a bank would go out of their way to inform me that they were putting thousands of dollars back in my pocket, especially when they didn't even have to. It is not hyperbole to say that working with her has entirely changed my view of what the mortgage industry can be.
Tara and her team were great! They got us an incredible interest rate, and they were very communicative via emails and phone calls and easy to reach throughout the process. Tara sent us regular updates as each of the milestones leading up to the closing were crossed off, and she was very helpful answering questions up front. I don't think we could have had a better service than what Tara provided.
As we emigrated to the USA, our file was not straightforward. After being denied at several banks we were referred to Tara. She did a great job in giving us not only the advise but also direct us towards the ideal solution. Tara enabled us to purchase our first US home. Do not go somewhere else, Tara is just the right source for your mortgage.
Very impressed with the tireless efforts of Tara Ryan on a difficult loan process. She provided great communication throughout the process and was available for questions. I Would definitely recommend.
