I worked with Jonathan on my third mortgage. For both of the first two I worked directly with a bank but when interest rates started going up I wanted to be able to secure the lowest possible rate and decided to look into working with a mortgage broker. I called several mortgage brokers and chose Jonathan because he gave me the clearest information and seemed the most knowledgeable about my particular situation and the mortgage process. The rate Jonathan was able to get was significantly lower than any of the banks I received quotes from. Getting a low-interest rate is only the first part of the mortgage process. Then comes all the paperwork, back and forth with underwriters etc. Working with Jonathan streamlined the process. He checked to make sure all the documents my partner and I submitted were in the correct format and would be accepted by the underwriter. He was available anytime we had questions (which was often) or needed clarification on the process. We needed a fairly quick closing to keep the low-interest rate Jonathan was able to find and he worked with the bank, our lawyer and all the other parties to ensure could close on time. Initially, I was a bit leery about working with a broker but now I’m a convert. Working with Jonathan was a great experience and I highly recommend using his services.

“We came to Jon after having some trouble with other lenders. We weren’t sure if we were going to be able get a loan to be able to buy a house due to our unique situation. He was referred by a friend who said if it could be done, Jon would be able to help us. It turned out that he was able to. Jon was with us every step of the way to help us understand what was going on, and what was needed. We are very thankful to Jon for his hard work.” Last year, I was feeling hopeless about getting a loan with my subpar credit score. Today, I own the exact house that I wanted. We are really grateful to Starr Mortgage for helping us with this.
“Being a first time home buyer, the entire process was totally foreign to us. Jonathan Starr walked us through the process with constant communication. He was very patient and he gave us a sense of relief that the process was moving along in a timely manner. It was a great experience and I would definitely work with the Starr Mortgage team again in the future.” I really can’t say enough about how great they were to work with.
“As a newly divorced single mom buying her first home on her own, there were many complexities to arranging financing for my home. I’m convinced that without Jon’s expertise, advice, and diligence, it would not have gone through. He helped find the best possible loan and locked me in at a fantastic rate!” Major hand holding throughout the process…Just what I needed. Thank You!
Jonathan is always the consummate professional who you can count on to work diligently on your behalf. His knowledge of his subject matter is exemplary and his enthusiasm and drive go unmatched. It’s always a pleasure to work with Jonathan as he prides himself on the little things that many times go overlooked or taken for granted.

Jonathan, Please accept my heartfelt THANK YOU for making the usually painstaking process of obtaining a mortgage, a real simple and pleasant one. You did the job very honestly and very professionally. As a profession myself, I was worried at first of about the complexity of paperwork and time that I would have to devote to the process, however you made it “smooth sailing” for me and my wife and we really appreciate that. What you quoted at the beginning was exactly what we paid in the end. I feel bad for some people who complain about hidden costs associated with a mortgage. In our case, there were none. In fact, it was cheaper than we expected. Thanks again, and I will surely feel comfortable referring you to any friends in need of a mortgage.
