Importance of Local Lender In Hot/Unique Markets; Quotes Of The Day

Employing a local lender is now more important than ever in the Bay Area’s super hot markets. Listing agents simply do not want to risk a transaction on untested lenders or appraisers (they go hand in hand) when so much can go wrong in today’s lending environment.

We take enormous pride in the reputation we have established at JVM, as it helps us win over many sellers (even when our buyer is not the highest bidder).

We are constantly thanked for the assistance of our reputation, and we received the two quotes below in the last week alone.

This is from an ultra-conservative buyer who insisted on using a “big bank” for financing until he couldn’t get his offers accepted. He finally purchased in Emeryville, with our pre-approval.

“…I believe the 17 day close you offered (along with your reputation in this area) really helped us secure our home! Thanks again,”

Similarly, the below quote is from a Realtor who was making offers in the Oakland area for the first time and was delighted to find out how much our reputation helped.

“… The JVM name HAS become that “who;” so proud to submit my pre approvals from JVM Lending and after years of hard and GREAT work, it seems that everyone else feels the same way as your name is recognized positively all over the industry :-)”
