Darren has spent the last 20 years in the mortgage industry working for large banks and lenders in various capacity. He’s excited to bring that wealth of knowledge to SELFi members. Darren was initially introduced to SELFi when he priced out a loan scenario on the SELFi website. He was amazed at the low rates offered through SELFi, as well as the transparency, so he decided to contact the company about joining. Inspired by the mission of helping homeowners accelerate financial independence, he decided to leave a very succesful mortgage company to join SELFi. Darren is married to his wonderful wife Robin and they an awesome dog, Gracie. He enjoys the beach, sports, and cooking.

From beginning to end, Darren was amazing. The online process was very smooth and painless. He and the team closed a cash out refi JUMBO loan in less than two weeks!

I am so please to work with Darren. He is full of positive energy. He delivered what he said he will. He organized his tasks very well to fit with my irregular working schedule and he gave me the deal that none of other LO can give. I’m looking forward to work with him more in many future projects.

Darren is such a great help in my mortgage process! He is efficient, straight-forward and knowledgeable! He not only planned and solved the problems ahead of me, he also got the lowest possible rate which is better than I expected! Will definitely work with Darren again and recommend him to friends.

Darren was a huge help in throughout the mortgage process! This was the easiest closing and mortgage process I have ever seen. We closed early with Darren’s help pushing things forward we were able to close in less than 20 days. I can’t thank Darren and the Selfi system enough for getting me into my dream home in record time, and even better yet with an amazing interest rate! Do yourself a favor and give him a call. I have already recommended a great friend to him and will continue to send him anyone I know of looking for a new house.

As a real estate professional, I pride myself in connecting my clients with the best resources necessary to ensure they have a smooth and timely closing.

Imagine my apprehension when my clients made the decision to use a lender that I’d never heard of nor had ever used before. That lender, was Darren Yassen @ Selfi, who coincidentally, was also affiliated with Rocket Mortgage. Darren hit the ground running and didn’t look back! The entire process went like clockwork and we received our “clear to close” in less than 2 weeks. My clients closed earlier than anticipated, with a lower interest rate and with lower closing expenses!

I was so impressed with Darren and the team, that I wasted no time referring him to friends and colleagues looking to purchase or refinance in the future.

Darren did a great job with finding us the rate and terms we were looking for! The most impressive thing was that it only took 2 weeks for us to close on the refinance of mortgage. Would not recommend anyone else besides Darren and the Selfi team!

Darren was incredible! We had planned to utilize our local lender for purchasing a second home. I found Darren by accident really, and he made some big promises. I was skeptical but we felt like we had nothing to lose as we had already been approved with our lender. Darren far exceeded our expectations. He saved us so much money in closing costs and had us approved in less than two weeks. We highly recommend Darren!

Darren was knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and willing to do anything it took to get me the best rate. The technology was easy to use. The process was very quick. And, in almost no time, I was able to close on our new home. If you need a mortgage or refinance, you better call Darren first.

I have worked with Darren as part of my recent mortgage refinance and he is amazing individual who stretches to understands customer needs and fulfill their saving dreams.

He is a highly talented and knowledgeable Lending Officer who is also highly available when I had any question popped up, he answered them patiently when he had a chance.

I have worked with many lenders in the past and no one is as swift and trustworthy as Darren.

He closed my mortgage refinance loan in just 10 business days, fastest ever I have seen and very transparent through out the process and saved me thousands in interest costs by closing soon.

I would recommend Darren for anyone looking to refinance their existing mortgage or shopping for a new one.

Darren helped us get a much lower refinance rate than we thought possible! He was very open and transparent about our options and fought for what was best for us. When it was time to lock in our rate and get our refinance completed, Darren helped us close in just 4 days!! This was by far the smoothest and easiest closing we’ve ever had. I highly recommend Darren!
