I would recommend him for anyone…

“Ben Freshman was my first stop in the home buying experience. As a first time home buyer, he explained all the steps and answered my many questions. His fee was paid by the lender, no out of pocket cost for me. We met several times to review options for the mortgage. Ben gave the pros and cons for each option. He was available anytime to assist.  With Continental Mortgage and Ben Freshman I purchased my first house with a great interest rate on a 30 yr. fixed mortgage. Ben was there every step of the way to answer my many questions and explain the options. He was professional and honest. He did not pressure me to use one lender over another.  He attended the closing and has since been available for any questions. I would recommend him for anyone looking for a broker.”

Joe has been a great resource for me

“Joe DiSalvo and CMIC helped me refinance my home 9 years ago.  It was my first refinance and I was still pretty new to home ownership and the mortgage world.  My experience with Joe is that he acts more like an advisor than a broker.  Before we even talked about loan options, he wanted to know more about me, my goals, and my concerns.  We then reviewed each loan thoroughly, discussing the pros and cons for each loan. Joe was extremely patient and made sure that I understood everything that we reviewed. I have used Joe and his team for every refinance and new purchase since.  Joe has been a great resource for me in all of my real estate transactions.  He’s even turned down business from me because the refinance wasn’t in my best interest over the long run.  To me, that speaks volumes of Joe’s character and of his dedication to his clients in helping them achieve their lending goals.

They really work with their realtors

“I like to give my clients all possible options when it comes to financing their homes.  I find that mortgage brokers are often times more competitive than a lot of the larger banks.  Continental Mortgage can offer each buyer the program unique to their needs and in this ever changing real estate market, that alone has given my buyer an advantage in a competitive offer situation.  It’s important to me to have a loan officer that doesn’t stop working after origination.  I’ve worked with several loan officers at Continental Mortgage and they really work with their realtors as part of the buyer’s team from qualification to settlement and beyond.  They’re responsive, informative and I know I can count on them to put the buyer’s interest first.” ~

“Mr. DiSalvo, and the staff at Continental Mortgage, were an absolute pleasure to work with.  While my husband is an expert in the mortgage field, I am not.  Mr. DiSalvo not only watched the rates very closely for us but he also put into layman’s terms what exactly was going on with the whole process.  Without a doubt the most pleasant part of the whole new home buying process!”
