Review Breakdown

This was the easiest and most efficient refi I have ever done

Mark did a great job explaining and guiding me through the whole process - from laying out options and choices (to include discussing the potential impact of each decision) through following up with me to ensure all of the transactions had been completed on time and properly. An excellent experience overall.

An excellent experience

Mark was extremely helpful in getting our refinance closed quickly. He was very responsive and professional every step of the way. He definitely knows his stuff, so don't hesitate to call on him for all of your home financing needs. Being a Realtor myself, I truly appreciated him and will refer my clients to him for sure.

A Knight in Shining Armor

Have you ever had a deal that you thought was too good to be true? Well, I just refinanced my home with an unbelievable broker, Mark Balenger, that I thought was too good to be true. He kept me informed every step of the process and explained terms that could boggle the mind in the simplest way, so I could understand. Not only did he get me a great deal, rate, but he helped me get a reduce cost for my title insurance and absorbed the cost for a late fee charged for going past my commitment date. Mr. Balenger is truly a Knight in Shining Armor, gentlemen, and ethical man but above all, a man of God! Look no further, he is your man!

Awesome and Professional

Mark Balenger of Equity Loan Exchange contacted me through Lending Tree, I am glad Mark responded. He was extremely responsive and never failed to return a call or email and answered all my questions. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mark and his team to anyone seeking a mortgage or refinance. Mark was extremely pleasing to work with. He is attentive to details and communicates well. I have worked with many mortgage brokers and Mark is hands down the most professional. Mark pays attention when listening to the situation and creatively finds ways to get the mission completed. Mark presented multiple options and provides the pros and cons of each. What a pleasure it was to work with a professional with a responsive team! I was extremely impressed with Mark Balenger. It is so refreshing to deal with someone, knowledgeable and eager to assist. Mark certainly believes in great customer service. I highly recommend Mark and Equity Loan Exchange and will certainly deal with him in the future. Thanks Mark.

A Very Good Experience

I selected Mark from 4 other brokers for my VA refinancing and am glad I did. Mark made the process easy and relatively pain-free. He was extremely responsive and never failed to return a call or email and answered all my questions. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mark to anyone seeking a refinance or first mortgage.

Too bad there are not more stars to rate Mark.

Mark is the absolute best! He made sure to communicate with us throughout the entire process, including during preparing for a hurricane. I would and plan on recommending Mark to anyone that wants a hassle free and very straightforward mortgage process. I honestly cannot describe what a pleasure it was to have had the opportunity to work with Mark other than this and I really still dont think I have conveyed our feelings completely but if you have the chance to work with him POUNCE ON IT IMMEDIATELY!!

Jason from Lake Mary, FL

Mark is Great!

Mark was extremely pleasing to work with. He was attentive to detail and has excellent communication skills as information became available. I have bought and sold many properties in my adult life and never have I had such a smooth and stress-free experience.

Refinance of Mortgage with Mark Balenger

I recently was divorced from my husband in June. I received the house and the garage in our agreement but neither were in my name. Mark Balenger with Royal United Mortgage helped me to get a loan that included my house and garage at a great interest rate and one monthly payment that was much more affordable than what I had been paying. It was all done extremely quickly as well. We closed in literally less than one month! I was dreading this whole situation, but Mark made it so easy and was with me every step of the way if I had any questions or concerns. I would recommend him to everyone I know!

Jessica from Youngstown, OH

Excellent and lightning fast!

Mark made my loan process painless from beginning to end. What a pleasure it was to work with him and his responsive team!

Dina from Poughquag, NY

Extremely professional and knowledgeable

Mark is extremely professional. He listened to my situation and immediately had creative ways to get my loan. He gave me several options. I have been working with mortgage brokers for 20 years, as I am a Real Estate Broker. Mark was the best mortgage broker I have encountered.
