Having worked with a variety of lenders, I was all the more grateful to work with James on my investment property in Portland. James is not only highly knowledgeable about this world, he is responsive and works with you throughout the entire process to make sure that you are getting the best possible deal. If you're looking for a true professional who will give it to you straight and watch out for your best interests, I highly recommend you reach out to James.

James is the best. He promised he would make the process easy and he exceeded all my expectations. James is a clear and upfront communicator; he explained everything thoroughly from start to finish. He made himself available when I had questions and we closed my loan early. I will use James again.

My experience with James is this: He always had time for me and my endless questions. He is easily the best communicator of all the people involved in a real estate transaction (and there are MANY). There were no surprises because he explained the process in great detail, which is refreshing (I tend to have anxiety over everything). I would recommend his services to anyone and have already. THANK YOU AGAIN, JAMES!!

James was awesome! I worked with James buying my first home. I moved from MD to FL and that process was incredibly stressful but what was NOT stressful was the financial process. James answered every question. He explained everything to me. He was available all times of the day, responded to text messages (and there were a lot), emails, everything. At one point my realtor asked about the financial side and I said, don’t worry, that side is COVERED. He really made the home buying process so much lighter for me and I am so grateful for that. I absolutely recommend him!!!

A happy Florida resident! 😁

Refinancing can be stressful, and in the past, I have always felt that the loan officer was more concerned about what they could make off the deal versus what was in my best interest. I felt rushed and pressured. I had a completely different experience with James. James takes the time to really understand your needs and helps with any challenges along the way. He doesn't lose sight of the sense of urgency in getting things done for you within the timelines that the two of you have agreed upon. His follow-up is impeccable, as you matter to him. The process was so easy and seamless. I would recommend James for all of your financing needs. He has the experience, and the knowledge to advise you of ALL of the options that could be best for you. It does not get any better than this. I would work with James again, in a heartbeat!

I am a long time Real Estate professional with many closing per year. James Tennell was able to do a very complicated Bridge Loan for clients of mine that enabled them to buy a home for their growing family while they still owned their current home. And he closed it on time! This loan isn’t easy to find, and in the past when I located a lender that could do a bridge loan the cost was 5x what this loan with James and his company ended up costing my clients. James knows his stuff and worked extremely hard to make it all happen!

There’s so much to say but I’ll keep it short.This has been the longest most frustrating process I’ve been through, because of all our challenges.Thank you James for being patient with us as first time buyers, there were a lot we didn’t understand. Realistically I didn’t fully believe it could be done since we were told no by every other lender in the world, ( well at least that’s how it felt) but here we are Thanks to you James…Thank you so much…Don’t worry now I know where to send anyone who’s looking to purchase a home…
James Tennell…. He gets it done
