Jay was great with my wife and I, as we refinanced our first and second mortgages into a new single loan. He listen to our needs and came up with some great solutions. We selected what we felt worked best for us, all along getting quick responses to all our questions (and we had a lot of questions!).
At one point, we were concerned that we didn't pick the best option. Jay calmly worked with us, answering more questions, giving us other options. Ultimately, his knowledge and experience broke through our financial anxieties, and we saw that the option we selected, was the best for us.
From start to finish, this was the easiest loan process I have ever gone through. The knowledge and experience that Jay brought to the process, provided a great and successful experience, and I highly recommend his services.
Thank you Jay!

We were very happy with Jay Weisbrod as our mortgage broker, starting with our first conversation. He was always honest, transparent, and helpful. As first-time home-buyers, it was invaluable to have Jay’s help mapping out the finances of home-buying. From determining how much house we could truly afford (and the monthly payments that came with it), to pre-approving our loan, to getting all the funds moved into the escrow account, he did an impressive job of clearly explaining a very technical and esoteric system. We were especially impressed by how accessible and responsive he was, even outside of normal business hours! As we went into the final week of escrow, he calmly responded to our growing frustration and anxiety with the underwriting process, and he pushed hard to ensure that despite those intermediate delays, our final closing date happened on time. Thank goodness – we had a moving truck coming the next day!
Jay was more than just a financial functionary in the home-buying process; he was most definitely our partner and ally. We are grateful for his guidance and assistance, and we whole-heartedly recommend him to any other home-buyer.

I highly recommend Jay as the person to lead your homeowner journey. Jay was actually referred to me by someone I knew from the same apartment complex I resided. Jay helped him buy a house in January 2017. My experience working with Jay is that his competence, knowledge, and expertise assisted was instrumental in securing a house, when I did not believe the dream of being a home owner was possible.
Jay demonstrated he was trustworthy, gave me the facts throughout the very difficult house buying experience.
Jay was available, responsive, and reassuring. Jay and my home buying team supported me and made my dream come true. It must be noted when we embarked upon this journey I was going through cancer treatment and reconstruction. Jay texted me and kept me informed. I am cancer free as of April 12 2017 and a proud homeowner to convalescent and continue to heal body, mind, and spirit.
P.S. I changed realtors on this journey but Jay was irreplaceable. We closed on June 21, 2017 just in time before my apartment lease increased, one of my concerns I voiced to Jay at the beginning of my home search. He is a man of his word.
Priscilla Sobremonte, Fairfield CA 06/29/2017
After 2 lenders told me they couldn't get me approved, Jay came to the rescue. He got me into my first home. Jay even squeezed out a little more on the preapproval amount and was able to give me lender credits on the closing. In a nutshell, other lenders couldn't work out the numbers yet jay got me in a loan close to 500k!! He's the best! There's no doubt who I'm going to for my second home.
Aatofau, Salinas, CA 06/29/2017
Jay helped secure a mortgage within 30 days. He helped secure a higher loan than might have been possible otherwise by approaching the employer and getting the needed assurances.
Njesud, Glendora, CA 04/18/2017
Jay helped me with my first-ever mortgage, and I am very glad I chose him. He is honest and experienced, stayed on top of all of the details the whole way through escrow and had my back the whole time. Jay got me an excellent loan and made sure I understood every step along the way. I can't recommend him highly enough.
User8408190, Annapolis, CA 04/13/2017
Jay was extremely helpful. Applying for a mortgage loan is nerve racking. First, Jay helped me get a good deal. Then he guided me through the process and basically held my hand every step of the way. He was always very responsive and his keen attention to detail was amazing.
Chris N. Arlington, MA 02/27/2017
I closed on a condo in early February '17 in the Contra Costa County and wanted to give Jay much deserved praise for his service. It was my first time ever buying a condo and he made the process a smooth one. Can't ask for more than a person that responds quickly through text and phone calls along with managing any obstacles that pop up during the closing process. Great recommendation from my agent and I won't hesitate to recommend him to others!
Kevin K. San Pablo, CA 02/21/2017
I have used Jay several times to refinance our existing home mortgage. He is knowledgeable and up to date with the latest market trends and rates. He was very responsive in helping us to obtain a lower refinancing rate. Since we are retired, Jay investigated and found a way for us to obtain a new loan based only on our retirement savings and income. Jay was very helpful in the process, kept us informed at all times and followed through on every detail. Finally, there were no delays or surprises at closing. I would use jay and his services again and recommend him to anybody refinancing their mortgage. Jay was able to find us a home loan in 24 hours, something our previous loan broker was not able to do in 3 months (we were a case of retired people with plenty of assets but no "income stream''). The seller wanted a quick closing and an even quicker guarantee of funding. Jay and his associates kept us informed of every aspect of the lending process and met all deadlines. I can say we would use him again for mortgage needs, because we just did when we went to refinance our mortgage to a fixed rate! I highly recommend you consider Jay Weisbrod when shopping for a mortgage or refinance. It will be worth your while.
The Boyd's – Concord, CA February 2017
It is a pleasure to recommend Jay Weisbrod to anyone seeking a skilled, knowledgeable, and most importantly, effective mortgage broker. As my mortgage broker, Jay did the impossible at a time when the impossible was, well, really impossible. After weeks of floundering with another mortgage broker and losing a much wanted house, Jay found me a loan and got my home loan funded. Our family is happy and thrilled to be in our new home, and I will refer all of my clients to Jay in the future. He's a joy to work with and a pleasure to know. If he says he can do it, he can, and if he says he "can't" then he'll certainly help buyers work on those areas that need attention to ensure that, in the future, the "can't" becomes a "can" get the loan done!

All you people! Look no further, because Jay at [Mortgage Company] is the best there is. For a bit of context: I was a first time homebuyer with a very high maintenance parent helping out with the down payment who wanted to be very involved in every step of the loan process. Jay explained everything clearly and went above and beyond to make sure things happened on time and in an efficient manner. Fast forward to a year later, Jay helped me refinance my mortgage to get a lower interest rate and yet again, I got top notch service. There were a few snags with the notary, but Jay went out of his way, even late at night, to make sure everything was resolved. I have recommended Jay to a good friend who is starting to look for a house, and she has also been really pleased with his professionalism, knowledge and overall great service. I will never use anyone else when it comes to loans, and look forward to buying my next home so Jay can be involved

Jay is amazing and top notch. He is fast, efficient, knowledgeable and courteous. All of our calls were returned quickly and our loan closed ahead of schedule. We couldn't have done it without Jay’s attention to detail and knowledge of the business.
Shira O. - San Francisco, CA 10/31/2016
We always use Jay Weisbrod from [Mortgage Company] for all our mortgage needs (rental property and our primary residence). We have used other lenders before, but after working with Jay I can't imagine using anyone else. Jay makes the mortgage process so easy and he stays on top of everything. I highly recommend Jay to all my friends and associates.
Walt W. - Danville, CA 10/10/16
Background: 5 Years of house hunting and worked with at least 4 different loan officers.
Was introduced to Jay through our Real Estate Agent. The last loan officer we dealt with [Jay @ Mortgage Company] was by far the best decision we ever made (besides the purchase). The other loan companies were very hard to work with and had their noses in the air making a tedious process seem even more difficult. As a first time home buyer Jay knew the objective and got us there with his patience and expert knowledge in the industry. Jay holds your hand through the entire process so you are not on your own. More importantly being positive and having a can do attitude assured us we made the correct choice.
Will be recommending Jay to everyone I know going forward. 5 Stars!
Philip P. - Pasadena, CA 10/13/2016
Jay Weisbrod was extremely helpful throughout the refinance process, by making something that can at times be stressful into a seamless transaction. He was very informative, responsive, answered all my questions and was always working towards what was in my best interest. Overall he is a great person who I would work with again in the future and highly recommend to anyone!!
Jesus C - Concord, CA 7/10/2016
We've used Jay for the past 7 years for both re-financing and new loans, and we trust his work. He's extremely professional, personable, and gets the job done. In our last home purchase, he called the listing agent the evening offers were due to give him assurance that we would make it through the contingency process without any hiccups (and we did :) We've gotten very competitive rates from him, and all-in-all it's just nice to work with a broker we can trust!
I can't fail to mention that I also referred him to a friend whose parents were native Mandarin speakers and spoke very little English, and my friend was very impressed with how patient and polite Jay was throughout the process. Her parents had a lot of questions and Jay answered them respectfully. She said the rest of the people involved in the sale were not that way. I'd highly recommend working with him!
Sarah S. - San Francisco, CA 6/13/2016
Jay was extremely helpful throughout the refinance process. He was very informative, responsive, answered all my questions, and was always working towards what was in my best interest. Overall he is a great person who I would highly recommend!!
J. Cortez - Antioch, CA 2015
It was a pleasure to work with Jay on our most recent transaction, the re-finance of a 15 year home loan. Jay's timeliness and professionalism is top-notch and this made our experience so very positive. We appreciate him listening to our needs and meeting our expectations. We highly recommend his services to all!
The Bellisons - Castro Valley, CA March 2014
I would highly recommend Jay for all of your financing and re financing needs. He is very easy to work with, conscientious, and knowledgeable about the various options for loans. Jay is also honest and will give you the best deal available, and tell you when it does not make sense to refinance. Jay was great to work with, very professional, pays attention to detail, and very reliable. Would highly recommend him!

Jay Weisbrod is an excellent mortgage broker. He knows how to get it done. He knows how to overcome any last minute hurdles, and he gets me the best rates. He's really good at what he does. I'll always use Jay as my Mortgage broker. I've known Jay for 28+ years.... l will use no one else. I have turned my friends on to him, and he has done all their loans as well. They too were never unhappy with his professionalism and service.
We contacted Jay to do a refi on our home in Sacramento. He was very professional and responsive. He addressed all of our concerns and questions promptly and thoroughly. At no point did we feel left in the dark, and if we were confused (as we often were), Jay explained everything in such a way that we finally got it. Not only is Jay very knowledgeable and professional, but he is also friendly and trustworthy. I enjoy speaking with him. He does not hesitate to offer his advice and promptly answers questions. I would not finance a home loan with anyone else.
C Hamilton - San Ramon, CA August 2013
Jay's a good guy and I can go on forever into all the dirty details but to keep a long story short: 1) He helped obtain the best rate for my mortgage at the time; currently at 35% (yes, I’ve shopped around to be sure). 2) He does so at a terrifically low closing cost (yes, I've also checked with other sources). 3) He has innovative strategies to help catch low rates when they come along, which I believe no other agents would even bother to think about.
I'd like to say that I’ve done my homework before deciding to place my business with Jay. So for all of you that don't want to get ripped off by traditional sales agents and don't have time to do your own research, I hope my work and recommendation can be of a benefit to you. Go with Jay!
W. Chau I August 2013
Jay is a get it done kind of guy. We worked with him two different times on our home loan and the first time we ran up against every obstacle possible, but with his persistence and experience in the business we got the loan we wanted. Jay worked tirelessly for us and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He has years of experience that helped us immensely when no one else could push through, he did just that. He rocks!

Your Experienced Loan Professional. I recently worked with Jay Weisbrod to finance the mortgage for my first home (purchased in Walnut Creek, CA). I was referred to Jay by one of my friends, and could not have been happier with the service Jay provided! As a first home buyer, the process for buying a home was a BIG unknown for me and my fiancé. As such, we had many questions and Jay was more than willing to hop on the phone with us to talk us through any questions or concerns we had! Jay is very knowledgeable in this space, and we felt very comfortable at every step of the process. In addition to providing us with the information we needed, Jay was also able to leverage his resources to secure us a loan at an even better rate than originally quoted! Finally, buying a home these days proved to be an arduous process and when we felt the pressure, Jay always managed to send us inspirational correspondences to keep our spirits up, this helped a LOT! In the end, it could not have worked out more perfectly, and we are very appreciative of Jay keeping us motivated throughout the process. We are excited to continue working with Jay for the years to come!
Whenever I need a loan or refinance I use Jay. He always has the best rates. He is honest and ethical and a pleasure to business with. I have referred numerous friends and family members to Jay. Everyone I know has had a similar experience.
Jay was recommended to me by a friend. He helped me refinance my home. I had not met Jay before, so I was a bit reluctant at first. But he is an excellent communicator, and responded very quickly to emails and phone calls throughout the whole process. We were able to complete the process over the phone and email. He explained the terms of our loan which were very competitive with the best advertised rates of other brokers, and then was able to lower the rates later when interest rates further dropped! He communicated dearly and concisely what documents were needed for the loan, the status of the loan with the lender, and the schedule of events to dose the loan. He also works with a very competent group of professionals that made my re-finance experience VERY pleasant! I liked dealing with Jay so much that I used him to refinance my home two more times! I strongly recommend Jay's services to anyone considering a refinance.
F. Assadi - Anaheim, CA May 2013
Working with Jay Weisbrod was an absolutely great customer experience. He and his colleague made the financing process on our new home move forward very smoothly and efficiently. My wife and I were so pleased with his efforts, we called on him again recently (2 years after initial financing of our home) to re-finance as rates continued to drop. Jay is hard-working, transparent in his business practice, and responsive to the needs of his client. We have recommended him to friends looking for a high quality mortgage broker who can navigate the customer through these complicated financing times and get you a quality loan at a great rate.
The Browns - Walnut Creek, CA April 2013
We have worked with Jay several times over the years and we are always impressed with his professionalism. He makes acquiring a loan a painless process and we are always pleased with the rate he is able to secure for us. I believe Jay's clients usually find him via word of mouth recommendations. There's substance behind his reputation.
