We were referred to Joseph through my nephew who had used him and had a good experience as well. Being somewhat computer illiterate Joseph through patients and understanding walked my wife and I through the process. We were impressed with the rate he got us as well as his professionalism. We will refer him to anyone interested in a refi in the future.

The view rates estimates that SELFI hosts lets you customize and view different options before allowing you to opt from bucket of options. It offers one of best mortgage rates in the market. Joseph guides and helps you throughout the process and make it look so quick and easy from document upload all the way to closing.

Awesome service! Thank you Joseph and your team for everything! My refinance wasn’t an easy one but you and your team work hard and endlessly to get it done for me. I work 2 jobs and have to handle a newborn baby and you made my refinance painless and less stressful. Thank you again for all your help.

The smoothest-process, best-rates refinances I’ve done. Get rate quotes from the website without the usual “enter your email to see your rate” business from other sites, nor the automated callbacks. I’ve refinanced with Selfi twice now, and both Ben and Joseph were knowledgeable, quick to respond, and pressure-free. The most digital/paperless and “errand-free” process I’ve had to date.

I found SELFi after searching for an online refinance option with low cost of entry so to speak. I liked the idea of showing transparent rates and allowing customers to directly search for loans based on their needs (without having to necessarily talk to anyone first). But if your not sure like I was, I just talked to Joseph

directly because with his experience he narrowed down my loan needs very quickly. He really does coach you through the process. I was able to get a no fee refinance and lowered my monthly payment by about $200 at the same time, which met my needs well. The refinancing experience was very fast and smooth. Joseph was very professional and responsive making sure my questions were answered thoroughly (by email and phone) before proceeding with next steps. I appreciated the ease of uploading all the documents straight through the Selfi app portal, really made things easier. He also walked me through the process with Quicken loans so that we could make sure we closed on time. Over all the whole process took about 2 weeks start to finish. I am so glad I found SELFi and I will definitely keep them in mind next time I purchase not refinance

Joe provided excellent customer service. We purchased our home last year using Selfi and just completed a refinance with Selfi. We’ve been loyal and been rewarded with another smooth transaction. Highly recommended; thank you again!

After an error on my part during the process, he was extremely helpful and went the extra mile in helping me figure out how to resolve, coordinate, and eventually finalize things.

Before talking to SELFi, I felt like home refinance is like a maze with a meteoroid shower of phone calls. After my call, I got enough clarity, thanks to SELFi for educating me. I got multiple quotes with the best recommendation and reasoning. I talked to different other providers, no one able to match the quote from SELFi. After sharing my SELFi quote, they offered to match, but they could not beat on the first quote, so I considered SELFi a trusted service provider. The team worked with me very patiently to fit my busy work schedule. After giving my consent to move forward, everything was orchestrated very well, and I’m pleased with the overall experience.

We are so glad we found SELFi, Inc. for so many reasons. After comparing with several other mortgage companies, the rate SELFi offered was the lowest. The entire closing experience with Joseph was like a breeze. He is very professional, very responsive, and always kept us up-to-date with various due dates. Even if there was a shortage of appraisers and the possibility of not able to lock the initial rate, he kept us calm and we were able to close the deal. This is the situation that a true professional shine. We are very satisfied and happy with the experience we had with SELFi. Thank you so much!
