Ricky helped us with the purchase of our first home and we couldn’t be happier with his service. As first time buyers we knew very little about the home buying process, but Ricky was just a wealth of knowledge when it came to everything. Even before we had decided to move forward with Ricky, he was so willing to lend his time and expertise. That spoke volumes to us on just how much he truly cares, and was ultimately why we decided to move forward with him for our home financing needs. We also went with Ricky as our real estate agent, which made the process even easier. The nice part about this was also that Ricky offered us a buyer’s rebate for using both of his services. This was definitely unexpected, but again shows that he truly cares for his customers. Throughout the process he answered all of our questions and concerns. Even with rates currently being so high he was still able to find us a rate that we considered fair in today’s market. We are super thankful to him for all his help and patience with us, and will recommend him highly to all our family, friends, and colleagues.

I am pleased and grateful for the work, time and dedication Ricky gave me during my home/building buying process. He always took the time to explain every aspect of each step to me, insistence at times- but, without hesitation, he answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable when I asked questions for further clarifications. I fully intend to refer him to my family and friends, and I know that he’ll offer each of them the same detailed service he gave me. Thank you, Ricky! Your very grateful client.

Ricky was extremely helpful, he has always straightforward and honest about everything happening with the process. I found Ricky to be not only very insightful but willing to provide guidance; which is very important especially for a first-time home buyer like myself. He made the process very effortless and always notified immediately whenever there was updates. If you’re looking for a professional who is patient, organized, and will bring tranquility to your home-buying process I recommend to get in contact with Ricky.

Ricky is professional, communicative, helped guide me through every step of my multifamily purchase process, and was always available for answering all my questions promptly and thoroughly. He helped me secure a great loan rate that was the lowest of everyone else's provided rate I had contacted without needing to go back and forth between lenders. My loan was approved quickly and we were clear to close very quickly. I will be referring Ricky to my friends and family. Thank you!

Ricky was phenomenal in recently helping me secure an unconventional loan for an investment property. He was able to provide a portfolio type loan that fell inline with what I needed in order to move forward with the purchase. I've been fortunate to work with great brokers but even among them Ricky was clearly a cut above. His experience shone through out the entire process as he regularly kept me updated, readily answered my calls and took the time to answer any questions even while on vacation! I've shopped around and have done my due diligence in the past like any wise shopper should do. Ricky has always been transparent and professional about the way he does business. I'm a repeat customer and plan on keeping it that way. This was my third product with him and can comment at length about those but trust me when I tell you in short that beside being ideal products for the need they were handled just as great. I highly highly recommend Elite Rate w/ Ricky!

Ricky recently assisted me with refinancing my home and was very pleased with his work. Ricky was professional, efficient and immensely responsive. To secure the best rate for closing, Ricky managed all my information in a timely manner and ensured he was available to answer any questions when reviewing final documents. Ricky throughout the process was a call away and even brought the closing to my home. Additionally, Ricky is well versed in real estate and answered all my questions related to future purchases and my real-estate portfolio.

My husband and I had a very wonderful experience working with Ricky Vazquez at Elite Rate LLC in refinancing our home mortgage. He was informative, extremely thorough and attentive to our financial needs, thus making sure that we were getting the best deal possible. He was straightforward and very helpful in explaining the process from start to finish. Ricky was always quick to respond to all of our questions and was always easily accessible. Everything was handled quickly, efficiently and his customer service is the best that we have come across. His good humor is always at the forefront and we have established an excellent rapport through our dealings. This is our second experience working with Ricky and I even referred him to my daughter and son in-law for their first house. We would highly recommend Ricky and his company to anyone. Look no further for your mortgage broker needs. Ricky is the BEST!!!

I could not have been happier with Ricky's ability to find me a killer rate. He went above and beyond to do what no other loan officer I tried to work with would do. He explained the whole process thorougly, and walked me through step by step. Ricky made me feel comfortable and appreciated while going through my first home purchase. I was referred to Ricky from a friend and they had nothing but amazing things to say about him. I am happy I worked with him and will be referring all of my friends and family that are buying homes and refinancing.

Ricky recently closed a home refinance loan for my husband and I in early July. We were impressed with Ricky’s professionalism, attentiveness, and exceptional service. From the very start, Ricky walked us through the refinance process. Every step of the way, Ricky addressed any questions we had and was more than happy to explain aspects regarding our refinance loan that we needed more clarification on. Ricky definitely makes it a priority to provide his clients with direct and honest communication. We were simply astounded by Ricky’s quick, turn around service since our refinance loan was closed in such a timely manner. Ricky provided us with a phenomenal rate that traditional banks just couldn’t match. He truly does offer his clients an “elite rate” that you won’t find anywhere else. We are so appreciative of the time and effort Ricky put forth towards initiating and closing our refinance loan. With the new, lower rate we secured, we feel indebted to Ricky for all the money we will save in principal and interest for many years to come. Any future clients of Ricky will benefit from his vast knowledge and extensive experience, exceeding your expectations of quality service.
