what people are saying about driven

Albert has been a total professional during my mortgage process for the past three homes. He have displayed support and guidance throughout the entire process and I’m always impressed with his level of service and personal attention to all details

Jack Graham
Los Angeles

Albert and his team are a heath of information and they helped to educate my family and I as to why a reverse mortgage was the best option for our particular situation. After meeting with Albert on several occasions for this matter, this was the perfect solution to allow my mother to stay in her home!

Zak Reid
Los Angeles

I have been doing business with The Mortgage Guy for over a decade. They have always provided me and my clients with great service & attention, and consistently exceed my expectations.

Aura Brooks
Los Angeles

Albert takes time to ensure that clients understand the entire process to closing on a mortgage. They are always willing to explain things until each client is completely comfortable. Albert is exactly the type of individual you want working on your behalf. You wouldn’t want anyone but “The Mortgage Guy” to take care of you.
