  • Everything! The entire experience was amazing and smooth from the initial phone call to Jeff, to the website, all communications and the final day of closing. One thing that stands out to me is Jeff's ability to make you feel comfortable and confident in him and that tasks ahead. He never made me feel less than or silly for questions I had or information I had to provide. He was so kind, gentle, encouraging and funny. Was truly a pleasure to work with him on such a huge decision and milestone in our lives.

  • Jeff Lichtenstein was an amazing partner, clear on requests, and patient to explain all my questions, answering all phone calls promptly, and supportive during all the loan approval process.

    Jose M, happy client
  • Jeff and his associate Graham Nadler were fantastic. I was in discussion with multiple lenders to find the best mortgage possible. Jeff won my business with his exceptional knowledge of the mortgage process. He was able to more clearly define and explain aspects of the process than the other lenders and was even able to educate me on some of the questionable promises made by other lenders. I will happily recommend Jeff, and Ruoff to my friends and family.

    Michael C, happy client
