Testimonials

Hi Steve:

 

I just wanted to thank you for the painless process of refinancing our home.  When you first told me it would just

be a few weeks I simply did not believe. But now you have made a believer out of me. I appreciate your professionalism, your daily communication, your patience, your eagerness and thoroughness of answering my questions and your affable and no pressure manner.

It was actually a good learning experience for me and I would recommend you and your company to anyone.

thanks again,

Pat  of Thousand Oaks, CA

I am so thankful that our realtor had referred my wife and I to Great American several years ago.  Steve Marche was very instrumental in making it possible for us to purchase the home of our dreams in 2013, it was a seamless transition. This month we returned to Great American in request of a business related loan. Once again “A Pleasure” (and success) working with Steve and his organization. Normally a very stressful transaction made easy, due to the professional team put together by Mr. Marche. We would recommend Him and his Company with great confidence!!!

I worked with Steve for my 1st mortgage and also my refi mortgage. Both went smoothly and better, very fast! I wasn’t the easiest client for paperwork wise, but some how he made it all work to get the loan. I really appreciated his promptness, ability to answer all my emails, text, and calls expedite even on the weekends whenever I had a concern or question. Our family really appreciates your efforts to get the goal accomplished. Marko & Cami

Steve, you are the best! Testimonials

I called you on a Sunday, just at my witts end. I am Divorced and my ex-wife went back to court to get even more money than what I gave to her. The Bank after 60 days turned me down. Then I went to the Credit Union I have been at for 25 Years, paid off cars and trucks, always on time. They too turned me down.

You said, after asking me a few questions, you could definitely do the loan for me! In a matter of just two weeks you had the Loan Documents ready for me to sign! Wow, I could not have asked for better service and follow up than that you gave me! You made me feel real important!

Thank you Steve.

Steve has been instrumental in getting me a new mortgage refinance. I had been trying for years and he was able to get the job done with his expert knowledge, skills, compassion, communication, and doggedness. I am ecstatic, and very relieved that my monthly payment is down, I saved $600 a month, thanks to this incredible professional and good man. He’s still always there to answer other questions and to guide me. He gets a big “attaboy” from this happy customer.

Success in life is largely based on who you align yourself with in various areas.

We started to Refi our loan almost 12 months ago. We had some credit score issues but my income and debt to income were solid. I went from one broker to another who said they could get it done for me only to end up wasting time and money.

Most of these guys use the same system and the mortgage business has reduced all of us borrowers to just numbers. They put your FICO Scores  into the system and it’s either a yes or a no. There is no expertise to this industry it seems.

I came across Great American and Steve and he seemed to have a different approach. I presented my situation to him and after some analysis he stated he could get it done. Fortunately, 5 weeks later I have a closed loan through Great American.  I am sure it takes years of experience and due diligence making the connections to be successful in this business and Steve has certainly done that.

I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to get a mortgage loan. Whether you have perceived obstacles with credit or  property value, bring them to Steve and he can honestly assess whether you can get the financing you need. I am glad we did and we are now almost $600 in the black every month thanks to Steve’s help.

We look forward to future success in this area now that we have Steve in our corner.

I highly recommend Steve at Great American Funding! I just closed escrow on a home that required someone with expert knowledge of the lending market to get it accomplished. Steve was willing to roll up his sleeves and do the work required with this complicated transaction. He figured out a way to get it done, when others simply said no.

I have been recommending Steve Marche to my client for purchases and refinancing. He has always been honest in his dealings with my clients. If he can’t do the loan, he tells them up front and does not waste their time. My clients have been extremely happy with their experience with Steve. They have thanked me for recommending him and have referred to friends. He also has done private money loans for my client and they have been very happy with the results. I will continue to use him and recommend him as I have for the past 7 years.

Great experience

Steve did a loan for a good friend that I referred him to. She was so happy that everything went smoothly, mainly because Steve was involved in every aspect of the loan. The loan took 3 weeks and she could not be happier. No hassles, just good customer service.  Howard O.

They Did It

Everything they did was exactly what they said they would do and all the paperwork was done in a much shorter time then when I’ve used other companies on some other properties till I found Great American Funding. And Steve returned my calls right on time !!

After a recent divorce, I needed help understanding what I will need to qualify for a new purchase. Steve was kind and patient in guiding through what would work best for me. He could have closed a deal immediately that was in his interest (that some others had tried), but put my needs first. Mr. Marche is a class act and a very knowledgeable resource.

To Whom It May Concern:

We had the pleasure of doing business with Mr. Steve Marche of Great American Funding Corp. and his team when we were seeking a home loan.  Steve had been recommended by a friend of mine.  The bar was set very high by my friend and I was surprised to find out that he was even better then she said.

Steve was consistent, professional and understood we needed to close escrow in a short amount of time and run parallel with the house we were selling.  My wife and I were only buying our second home and buying a home is one of the most stressful events a person can go through. Steve and his team helped make the process much easier and we are grateful for all they did.

Steve and his team worked diligently with the escrow company to make sure everything was in place. He kept them on their toes. Consequently, there were no delays we were able to close escrow on time. Steve took the time to explain the process/documents in detail so that we felt comfortable with what we were signing.

We are confident we would not have had such a good experience had it not been for Steve and his team.

We would highly recommend Steve’s services to anyone seeking a home mortgage. He will be the only person we will use in the future.

Sincerely,

Scott & Teri Snyder

We are just finishing our re-fi on our 2nd property we did using Steve at Great American Funding Corp. and it is going just as smooth as the first time.  I did a lot of research on him and his company before using them and everything I learned was positive.  I don’t write too many reviews but felt that he did such a good job that I thought I should mention this. No problems and always ready to answer any questions.  I would definitely recommend them!

To whom it may concern:

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Steven Marche, the owner of Great American Funding Corp. in Westlake Village, Calif. in July of 1996 when I was in need of obtaining funding for a home I wanted to purchase in Camarillo, CA.  Steve walked me through The Home Loan Funding process in a caring and professional manner, securing me the pre-approvals docs., for my new two story home in under two weeks.  Steve found me a bi-weekly loan that allowed me to pay off my 30 year mortgage in under 25 years.

Steve always kept me informed throughtout the purchasing process, making sure I received seamless service.
I stayed in this two story home from Aug. 9, 1966 until 08/06/2012 at which time health issues necessated me finding a one story home. Once again I contacted Steve Marche (who by the way kept in touch with me during the 16 years I owned my original home.) Steve once again enthusiastically assisted me in selling my home and purchasing my dream one story home for sale by owner.  Steve coordinated legalities between my sales agent Joanne Wade and Ticor Title to make sure the funding occurred in a timely fashion.  My previous home needed to sell before my new home closed escrow so I could take advantage of Prop. 60 which allowed me to keep my tax base from my old residence to my new home.  Saving me money,

It is with great enthusiasm I endorse Steve and his wife Diane who have provided me with FIVE DIAMOND service these past 16 years.

If you have any questions regarding the provision of services by Great American Funding Corp. do not hestiate in calling me @ 805-469-4290

To Great American Funding Corp.
Steven Marche

We were a great candidate for a great interest rate, because of our great credit and wonderful long term jobs.  We had used another lender, and for over 40 days we were told our loan was locked in and not to worry. When the 40th day came we got really worried.  We were talking to some friends that suggested we contact Steve at Great American Funding for a straight answer.  We knew that rates were going up as the market was not stable at this time.  Steve talked to us and at first told us to continue with the existing lender as we were purchasing our 1st home.  Well, another week went by only to find out that the lender was giving us the run around.  We called Steve to get started.  He came in to the office on Saturday and we completed everything he requested.  Great American got us a quick Approval thru Fannie Mae and then really locked our loan in just in time to close on our 1st home.  We can not thank you enough!

============================================
Dear Steve,
Both my wife and I would like to heartily recommend your services to anyone and everyone who will listen to us,  All throughout our escrow you have far exceed our expectations in your expertise, responsiveness, honesty, availability and friendliness.  At first, I was somewhat reluctant to use a mortgage Broker. Prior to using your services, we had “Shopped the market” in the past when buying real estate and always found a loan directly through a bank.  However, our real estate agent highly recommended your services.
During escrow we already had a pre-approval with the best possible solution for our needs.  In particular, this was due to your creativity and experience.  After all, there’s a lot more involved in getting a loan than just “getting qualified and pre-approved for a loan.” We know that almost every buyer takes great care I finding the right property for their needs.
However, we believe it is equally important to also find a loan that provides the best “fit” for one’s situation.  In our unique situation, we not only wanted a low interest rate as most buyers would, but also we wanted liquidity to allow us the ability to make a lot of repairs on the home we purchased.  Due to our unique circumstances, you were able to provide us with a highly creative solution that I do not believe another bank or broker with less experience could have offered!

You have demonstrated a very high level of professionalism, and concern for each clients particular needs.

Thank you for helping my clients so well.

Dear Steve,

Now that three months have passed since the move into my Seal Beach home, I want to take the occasion to thank you for helping to make the transistion possible.  As I mentioned to you a couple of times, there were some not-very-sell-informed and generally not too bright real estate transactions in my personal history.

You broke the string.  You gave me the information and the advice I needed, and reminded me when necessary of what you had already told me.  You clearly kept your eyes open to the best opportunities for me,  which gave me comfort and confidence through the steps in buying a home.

You helped make the process easier for me than it had been in the past.  Your help is very much appreciated.

Very truly yours,

Dear Steve,

This thank you note is long over due.  We are very happy that we were able to refinance our mortgage when we did and your assistance made the process very pleasant.  We especially appreciate your straightforward way of explaining the various procedures and what to expect along the way.  There were no real surprises, except for a nice one, the whole transaction ended up costing less than we anticipated.  We also liked your choice of escrow companies.  They were very helpful and they were also accommodating to our schedules.

As you know, we had an unpleasant experience with a mjor bank the last time we refinanced.  After our experience with your firm, I can think of no reason to ever go to a bank again.  There is something to be said for specialization and competence.  I always felt that a refinance should be a fairly routine transaction, your firm made it possible.  If you would like, you may use my name as a reference.

Thank you so much,
