I am incredibly thankful for Logan Mikesell and the team at Handshake for helping us with our refi. This can be a hard process, but they did a great job of answering questions, responding to requests for information, being available to talk through the process and really made communication a priority. I am incredibly thankful and would look to them in the future, should the need arise to refi! Thanks, Logan~

I will be honest, I am one of those clients that reads reviews but doesn’t often leave one; however, I was so satisfied with my refinance that I felt it was the least I could do! This company helped us finalize the terms that were ideal for our family and budget! I HIGHLY recommend Jackie! She was thorough, efficient and quick! Thanks Handshake Home Loans!

I was very skeptical at first about using a company that was all the way across the country, but Skylar made it feel like he was right next to me the whole time. They explained everything in great detail and made the home buying process so simple and stress free.

I just finished working with Nick Sykes for the second time on refinance on our home. Both times, he has been a pleasure to work with! He helped us get switched over from an FHA loan to conventional and helped us drop our mortgage insurance completely! In the year and a half we have been in our home, Nick has assisted with two refinances and has helped save our family nearly $400/month on our monthly payments. I would 100% recommend Nick to anyone looking to purchase or refinance. He is responsive, helpful and is able to help walk you through the entire process while answering any questions you may have. I look forward to working with Nick and the team at Handshake Home Loans again in the future!

I worked with Nick Sykes on a refinance of our home. This was our first time going through a refinance and Nick was amazing to work with. There was no pressure from him as I shopped around to ensure we were getting the best deal for our family. He was always available and quick with responses to any questions I had. When we decided to move forward with the refinance through Handshake, Nick kept us updated throughout the underwriting process and helped us get to the finish line. We truly appreciate Nick’s help and look forward to working with him and Handshake on any future refinances or purchases!**Edit** Just wanted to update my initial review as I just finished working with Nick on another refinance on our home. Once again, Nick was an absolute pleasure to work with! He helped get us switched over from an FHA loan to conventional and got our mortgage insurance payments eliminated which has been a goal of ours since we moved into our home. In the year and a half we have been in our home, Nick has assisted with 2 refinances and helped our family save nearly $400/month on our monthly payments. I would 100% recommend Nick to anyone looking to purchase or refinance! Extremely helpful and great to work with. I look forward to working with him and the team at Handshake Home Loans again in the future!

Jackie Drenth!! WOW, WOW & WOW! I was so blessed to work with Jackie for my home refinance. Jackie was such a pleasure to work from our 1st phone conversation. There was something about her voice and customer service skills from our very first initial phone conversation which reassured me that I had contacted the right company.Jackie held my hand though each portion of my refinance transaction. I had sooo many questions, but she answered all of them with such ease, punctuality, and correctness. Her customer service is superb and I look forward to working with her on my next refinance transaction. Jackie always made me feel as if I was a priority and as if I was her only client. She spent many hours on the phone with me to walk me thought line items on my loan documents and many other questions on my loan to make sure I always had peace of mind. This was a HUGE decision that I had to make, but Jackie’s expertise and customer service gave me the peace of mind that I needed. She went above and beyond to give me the best customer service experience ever. I will never forget her remarkable professionalism, kindness, thoroughness, and patience. If you need assistance with your refinance, contact Jackie Drenth today at Handshake Home Loans, you will NOT be disappointed. You will be in great hands with Jackie! Thank you Jackie sooo much for getting me on track to financial freedom! You are the BEST!!

Hi I just want to say Ana went up an above helping me through this loan process. I mean in the beginning I was a little skeptical cause it was someone in an entire different state and didn’t really know if this was really real with all the scams going on. After some researching I went for it.She was very professional and got back with me quickly on every question I had regarding the process. I can tell she really enjoy what she does.🤗 When speaking with her she seem more like friend but still professional at all times, like she really got me and understood what I wanted to do. If I ever have to do this again she will absolutely be my go to person. Thx so much again Ana 🫂🤗🫂🤗🫂🤗🫂

I recently closed on a purchase with Handshake Home Loans in less than 20 days– simply amazing! I’ve worked in the real estate industry for 10+ years and the Handshake team exceeded all my expectations. Clark Malcolm was extremely professional and attentive from the first interaction and all the way through the funding process. Clark worked quickly to get me setup with a mortgage that had far better rates/costs than any of the 4+ competitors I spoke with. After my application was submitted, Clark and his team kept me updated in real-time with all updates. These guys really know their stuff and did everything to make the process EASY! I’ve already referred my friends and family to contact Clark at Handshake for any mortgage related services. Hands down the best mortgage experience I’ve ever had.

Worked with “Tyrone Renard Williams II” on refinancing my home mortgage.I tried it before with others but it was difficult, since I have two loans on my property.Tyrone helped me to refinance my mortgage and to unify the two loans in one loan with a good low interest (I got some offeres from other lenders, but this was the best).The whole process went smoothly and done in a very short time.Thank you Tyrone!

This is my second time entrusting Dillon Miles at Handshake with my home loan. He handled it quickly and professionally. I provided my documentation quickly and he in turn was able to process my re-fi expeditiously.. we closed in less than 2 weeks – that’s unreal!! Great rates and an easy process. I just couldn’t ask for a better client friendly experience. I’ve already recommend Dillon Miles to multiple friends AND the big boss (CEO)! Thank you so much!!

If you want someone who listens to your needs and then takes those and goes above and beyond your expectations, Dillon Miles is that person! This is the second refinance we have done with him and Handshake Home Loans, and both times have been smooth and easy from start to finish. One of my biggest things when working with someone is communication. Dillon also blows this out of the water. He answered ALL of my questions, and I had a lot, and he always did it in the most timely manner. I highly recommend his services when buying or refinancing a home! He is phenomenal!

A Handshake is a symbol of trust and respect, this gesture perfectly encapsulates my experience working with Devin Kolesar and the entire Handshake Team. Devin Kolesar took the time understand our specific needs and answered the hundreds of questions we had along the way. Throughout the entire process Devin Kolesar made sure our voices were heard and treated us with an unparalleled level of professional courtesy. Our Loan Officer was so determined to get us the best rate possible it was almost like he was refinancing his personal residence. To say that we were satisfied with the service we received from Handshake Home Loans is an understatement. We are over the moon. Thank your from the bottom of our hearts to the entire Handshake Team.

Many lenders do not respond to there client’s in a timely manner. Dennis Gagnon was absolutely amazing. I am a real estate agent, and I know the importance of caring for a client. Dennis did not meet the bare minimum, he exceeds in his professionalism. When many lenders fail to get the deal closed, Dennis is at his best. Thank you for everything.

Dillon went above and beyond to make the process extremely easy for us – he did a very good job educating us on our options, providing suggestions to improve our rates, making sure we were on top of all the various steps throughout closing, and perhaps what was most impressive was how responsive he was – regardless of the day or time, he was quick to get back to us.

We would highly recommend Dillon and the rest of the Handshake team to anyone looking to buy or refinance.

Not just hand shake but I must add “Hands down” the best loan officer and Refi mortgage we have ever done, and being almost sixty with many home refinancings under our belts, that says it all.Nick Sclafani was our loan officer, and I will tell you that he came through above and beyond what he said he could help us with.I wanted for the past 10 years to have a conventional loan and get rid of our FHA mortgage Insurance. The last 4 times we refinanced we were told this could happen but always to be let down for one reason or another. Not this time! Nick got the conventional loan for us, which saved us $350 a month in MIP’s (which now goes to our mortgage instead and pays into our mortgage $4000 more a year)!! Wow! Is that not incredibly!!! Yes it is incredible! Plus our Mortgage payment is almost $200 a month less, and we saved two months in mortgage payments.Nick also was there for every question I had and mostly answered the calls himself, but always within the hour he would get back to me. Who else can say that about their loan officer?? Not many, I know because I had many in the past that would take days or not answer at all.My husband kept expecting a “fire drill” while at work for some new information that they might need at the last second, because we always had to do this in the past, but not with Nick. No, not one fire drill or inconvenient surprise that we had to deal with in a hurry, not one!!The easiest and most comfortable Refi we have ever done (over at least 12 Refi’s and 8 new mortgages in our life span).This was the smoothest, easiest, honest, most reliable and exciting Refi ever hands down!!I actually enjoyed the process instead of dragging my feet.Thank you Nick, and thank you Handshake Mortgage loans for all you did for us with our Refi to make it the best experience we ever had over the last 35 years, of Refi’s and mortgage loans.Your the BEST! And we can’t wait for our next loan to be with you. We will be back!Thank you again NickAnd Gods Blessings to you all!🙏🏻❤️

Better than 5 stars. We received a 1.99 percent interest rate. Unbelievable!I had tried working with a different company and Laramie was able to beat the interest rate and the closing fees. I was so impressed I told friends about him. My friend Lisa is already closing in the next week. We closed in30 days, the other guy had told me 75 days to close. I consider it a blessing working with Laramie from start to finish. Great job and professionalism. You can tell he loves his job. Keep up the great work Laramie!

After starting a refinance with Wells Fargo, I was inundated with phone calls from other lenders after my credit was pulled. Initially, I was very upset with the unwanted calls coming in, one right after another. I answered this call with the intension of telling them to leave me alone. I’m really glad I listened to what they had to say. Jackie at Handshake Home Loans got me a MUCH better rate than the bank offered, less fees cash out, and a lower payment!!! SERIOUSLY! On top of that we started on 6/28 and my loan funded today on 7/23, LESS THAN A MONTH! She emailed, called, or texted at each step of the process so I was never in the dark. I could not recommend Jacqueline Marie Drenth and Handshake Home Loans more to you. You should, at very least, give them the chance I did at earning your business. You will not be sorry!

Jon Was absolutely a pleasure to work with. This was the only company that was actually able to work with me and my fiancé due to Covid messing up our credit score. Overall it was a really great experience it did take a little bit longer but we were able to get approved and closed and Jon kept us informed every step of the way. It was also very easy to get in touch with him and didn’t feel like we were getting the run around; he made it a very straightforward process. Would absolutely recommend handshake loans especially if your credit score is lower than 600. Thanks so much Handshake Loans—for our Mortgage needs!

After attempting to refinance and being told I’d have to come out of pocket I stopped looking. I had a conversation with a good friend of mine who recommended William John Schneider “Billy”. He reached out to me and was very understanding of my hours (I am terrible at picking up calls). He was so sincere and gave me all the information I needed to go on with this process. It literally took less than a month between getting all the info and closing. He was super professional, knowledgeable, understanding, and is just an all around great guy. I would highly recommend any one looking to refinance or do a home loan to reach out to Billy. He literally made the process so smooth, the hardest thing I did was open the door for the notary. Which by the way last time I closed I had to drive an hour to sign all closing docs. Definitely a great experience and he is recommended by me.

When doing my own research on refinancing, I happened to come across Billy Schneider.

He made everything seem so easy, painless and fast. I highly recommend him!

Billy Schneider went above and beyond to help me during my refinance process. He responded to calls and messages immediately, even if they were after hours. I was able to save a ton with no out of pocket costs. I did a fair amount of research in deciding with company to do my refinance though, and I’m very happy I went with Handshake Home Loans. I discussed my financial goals and Billy gave me multiple options to achieve them.

Nick Sykes and his team were excellent in helping us refinance our home.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with William “Billy” Donahue. Upon our first conversation he stated, “I don’t want this to be hard, it shouldn’t be. If you find yourself stressing out (trying to get documents), please let me know and we can work something out.” I was skeptical because, “They all say that;” however, he was different and meant every word. His communication was superb and he provided details of everything every step of the way. True to his word, we closed on time and couldn’t be happier with the service and experience with Billy and Handshake Home Loans. We highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed!

I had an amazing experience with Handshake Home Loans. My loan officer “Logan Klug” worked me through the process like a rookie and it was satisfying. The text and calls was prompt from day one to completion. I feel like they really care. Thanks guys.

Isai guerrero ramirez was great to work with. From begging to end he kept me updated on the process and we closed on the day we set from the begging. Other loan companies made excuses to why they could not refi me and isai juat made it happen without the runaround bs i was getting from others. Very thankful that they reached out to me and worked so diligently to make it happen. I would recommend to anyone looking to refinance.

I was referred to Handshake Home Loans through a simple conversation with a co-worker and I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I was with them! This review is going to sound like a plant but I assure you it isn’t. It’s coming from someone who nitpicks almost everything when it comes to service.From the get-go, our contact Erin Tudi was immediately responsive and a complete pro. Whether by phone call, email, or text, she responded within a matter of mere minutes to all questions or inquiries. In today’s day and age where unfortunately service seems to have taken a back seat almost everywhere, the level of customer service provided by her was above and beyond my already high expectations.The entire process from first contact to signing the closing documents in the comfort of our own home was 30 days! I had heard horror stories from other people about the lack of responsiveness and time to get things done from other companies and this had me concerned…but nope…not with Erin and Handshake Home Loans. It was seriously an awesome experience and I can’t say enough great things about the whole ordeal. I would not hesitate to refer them to anyone!Thanks Erin!!

When I first called Handshake Homeloans it was on a Saturday. I left a message inquiring about a possible refinance. I received a call back from Logan Mikesell on a Sunday afternoon. He was very patient and informative of all of our questions asked. The process sounded too good to be true and we almost passed up on it. Logan reassured us that he and the company he worked for were legit. We took the plunge of working with the company and it was smooth sailing the entire time. I was comfortable asking any questions at any time. Escrow was quick and smooth. Absolutely no stress! I would definitely recommend Logan and handshake home loans to my friends and family!

Erin Tudi took on my refinance without blinking and believed in my circumstance working out for the best, and it did just that. Erin beat another offer, while converting my FHA into a conventional. We never met in person but she made me feel like I was dealing with a lifelong friend. She absolutely set up my family’s home financial for the better now and into the future. Will forever be grateful.

I appreciate the responsiveness and the throughput with my refinance. It took some time but where others (agents/lenders) called it “impossible” Dennis made it possible and got me a low rate that was well under what other agencies offered and certainly less costly than they would have charged me (upto 3 times) what Dennis landed.Dennis delivered on his promise and made what others said was impossible, possible. Thoroughly pleased with the service, the outcome and overall experience!

My husband and I just purchased our home today and our broker Nick Sykes was exceptional from start to finish of this process, and to be honest that is an understatement. We had not one but several bumps in our road and the professionalism, communication, prompt responsiveness, and overall calm demeanor he exemplified has made us a client with Handshake Home Loans for years to come. We have already recommended him to several of our friends and their opinion of him and the company are exactly the same. If you are looking for a loan company/broker that is ALWAYS looking for your best interest and completely trust worthy Nick Sykes and Handshake Loans is the way to go! Thanks again for making all our dreams come true.

I can not express how thankful I am to Logan! He did a great job helping my family and I refinanced our loan. They have the best numbers, helped us save tons of money and he communicated with us every step of the way. We were never left in the dark. I dislike it when people get you on the hook and then they leave you in the dark, but this wasn’t the case with Logan. He is very ethical and there are no hidden fees. It all started with a random call and I am glad I gave him a chance to work with us when he called. We would usually just hang-up or ignore those kind of calls. Most important of all, he made us feel like family! If anyone is looking to refinance, call or reach out to Logan and you will definitely see what I am trying to say! I will definitely refer anyone I know who is looking to finance to Logan! Once again, thank you!!!

In all honesty we’ve dealt with other companies nothing ever compared or came close. They treat you like family and make sure in the end you are happy. Just within two year’s They saved our family $478 monthly that is huge! And a reasonable closing cost to top everything off. Ask for Logan he will take care of you all the way through.

Isai Guerrero Ramirez was extremely knowledgeable, truthful and transparent. We closed in about 35 days. Isai said he had the best deal for me and that I was getting the best deal and he was correct. During my refinance I shopped for the best loan estimates from Amerifirst financial, Blue Brick financial, Advantage 1st, Loan depot, and Penny mAc home loans. Handshake home loans saved me 228$ a month on my mortgage payment. I highly recommend locking in your rates first with Handshake Home loans and then shop around and try to beat their numbers.

If you are looking for a lender that will not only give you a good rate but also knows exactly what he’s doing, Dillon (and his team) is the best person for the job. As someone that didn’t know anything about this process, Dillon guided me the whole way through and taught me so much more than about getting a lower interest rate. He offered great advice about my options as well as worked hard to get everything done quickly without delays. Dillon is no doubt someone you want helping you through the buying process!

From our first conversation, I knew Jon Goldhammer with Handshake Home Loans was going to be great to work with for refinancing my loan. He was professional, yet personable, and immediately I knew he was seasoned and knowledgeable. If you are a first time buyer, work with Jon. He has the patience of a saint and will answer all your questions. As someone looking to refinance, I appreciated that Jon listened to my loan priorities. Unlike most buyers, I was more concerned with knowing who was going to service my loan vs. the rate and fees. Jon’s focus was in providing me reviews and details on a company he felt was the best fit. Best part, he still found me the best rate and the fees were better than other quotes I received! If you value efficiency, Jon was able to get my loan closed in 3 weeks – a record timeframe these days, especially over the holiday season and at the end of the year. For those that value customer service above all else, I appreciated that he was always available and returned my calls promptly. Jon also lets you know what to expect next and a timeline for that action. I highly recommend Jon for both seasoned and first time buyers.

When Logan Arredondo contacted me about refinancing my home, it was already on my mind. He went through everything with me and agreed to go through the process. After the initial necessary paperwork I basically had nothing to do but wait. He took care of everything and was always there or responded back almost immediately. The whole process went so effortlessly, I can’t believe how smooth and easy. I appreciate the way Logan and Handshake Loans Inc. handled my refinancing and would recommend them to others considering refinancing. My sincere gratitude goes out to them.

Working with Jonathan Goldhammer was a great experience. Our expectations for the refinancing of our home were exceeded, and the process, which can seem daunting at times, was made easy by Jon’s quick response to our questions. His easy-going manner, politeness (as a former Marine Jon always used “sir” when addressing me) and sense of humor made our relationship a good one. The rate that we locked in was excellent, and we were pleasantly surprised by how rapidly (I’ve done refinancing twice before and know of the possible pitfalls) we moved through the stages. I most highly recommend Handshake Home Loans and will certainly do so to our friends.

We just refinanced our home with Gregg deSaxe at Handshake Home Loans, it was a seamless transaction and we closed in less than 3 weeks!!

I had called several other refi companies and had decided we were not going to refi because of the cost and the rates offered just didn’t make sense. My dad kept hassling me to get it done while the rates are low, so I called Gregg. It was a smooth process, no hassle or haggle, and was easy to do, all while taking care of the family. Such a smooth and easy process!!

If you live in AZ, CA, CO, FL, TN, or VA call Gregg DeSaxe @handshakehomeloans.

There is no better time to start saving money than when we’re all about to be on lock down!

Thank you Gregg!!

Give him a call!!

Skylar and team were great. Had a issue with one of the appraisers but not HandShake’s fault. Overall positive process and helped save quite a lot of $$ after just one year from my initial mortgage!

Dylan was great at helping me refinance my mortgage. He made the experience very easy and kept me updated during the process. He ensured that I was able to get the best rate available and the process was completed quickly and stress free which was very important for me. I would absolutely use Dylan Forsyth at Handshake Home Loans for any future home loan needs. I couldn’t have asked for a better or more efficient person to work with. I definitely recommend him with 5 STARS!

Tyler Ermisch worked with me on two different loans. He was very professional and communicated with me in a timely fashion. He got me the great deals and I felt he really cared about getting me the best offers. I highly recommend working with Tyler and Handshake Home Loans if you are looking to refinance.

We have recently closed on our Dream Home in Arizona and Tyler Ermisch with Handshake Home Loans Inc made it all happen for us. We could not be more pleased with the level of professionalism displayed throughout the entire process. The clear communication, the constant updates and dedication to our process was absolutely impeccable- NEVER in our lives experienced before. My husband and I relocate for our jobs quite a lot in the past and with the experience we possess, it is easy for us to distinguish a Good service from an exceptional service and Tyler with Handshake Home Loans has delivered nothing less than Exceptional!! With honesty, transparency and Professionalism simply delivered! Thank you Tyler for all your hard work and restless hours working on our process to make our dream to come true!

Just finished a refi with Tyler. He was awesome. Kept us informed and in the loop without asking for a million different items at different times as some mortgage brokers can do. Very easy and seamless process.

This was our second home purchase, and working with Skyler at Handshake Home Loans was amazing. He didn’t trouble us with a million last minute questions, signatures, extra documents, etc. while we got closer to the closing date – that is super stressful. Instead, Skyler took the time up front to make sure he prepared us for everything to come. His customer service, friendliness, knowledge, and super quick response times made this a seamless process. I can’t even begin to describe how easy this home purchase was by having him. I would 150,000% recommend using Handshake Home Loans for a stress free home buying experience. The real stress comes after close when you have to move! Save yourself the extra burden and choose a good company that actually cares and takes care of you. Thank you Skyler!!

Easiest mortgage process I’ve ever experienced. Tyler was nothing short of amazing. From start to finish he was always there to answer any of our questions and he took care of absolutely everything! Anything that needed to be done was always around my busy schedule and it was no bother at all to him. Convenient is a definite understatement. I will definitely be referring Tyler and Handshake Home Loans to anyone and everyone I know in need of a mortgage or a refi. Thanks again Tyler!!

Being new to refinancing my home, I was pretty hesitant. Working with Tyler Ermisch was a breeze. He explained every step, ensuring I understood the process, checked in multiple times to let me know what was next and was extremely punctual. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Manny was an absolute pleasure to work with! I would recommend him to everyone! He was so responsive, quick, efficient and friendly. I recently purchased my first home with him, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I was in escrow 2 previous times and he was so much better than the previous lenders that I was working with! So thankful I found him! Will definitely be using him for future homes. Thanks Manny!!

This was the third time that we have worked with a lender (buying/ or refinancing) and it was certainly the most friendly, efficient, and effective process we have been through. Tyler was amazing. We will definitely use him again in the future. Fast to close, great communication. 👌

I bought a home and was financed through another company less than a year ago and it has been a NIGHTMARE! I thought I was going to have to let my home go because I couldn’t afford it anymore. I couldn’t find anyone to give me a loan or refinance me. Then came along Handshake Home Loans & Kyle Tudi. What a blessing, they refinanced me at a lower interest rate and made the process so easy and simple. Awesome company and very good people; patient, understanding and very willing to walk you through the paperwork. I can’t see myself finding another company better than them. Love you Kyle Tudi & Handshake.💓💕
