Providing great service may seem like it would be every lenders/loan officers goal.

And most loan officers will say they do have great customer service. I feel that to provide truly great customer service the loan officer has to truly lover their business and enjoy working with their clients.

I am now in my 25th year in the mortgage business, and I can tell you there is nothing else I’d rather be doing. I do everything possible to make sure that what I quote up front to my clients is how it comes out at closing. I don’t want my clients to have a bad surprise at closing, and to make sure there are no surprises I am very thorough up front.

My initial loan scenarios will provide detail that is unusual for the mortgage industry. Also, I include a “screen capture” video presentation that will help explain the scenarios, as if my clients are sitting right in front of me. My providing a video, my clients are able to review the scenarios and video as often as they want, all they way to the closing table.

The way I handle my clients results in many positive testimonials. Below are many of them. I have also included links to my Yelp Profile and also my Linkedin Profile, where many of my clients and REALTORS® have posted reviews.

“I am IMPRESSED with the passion Tim has for his clients! Tim has raised my level of customer response and service in my own work.

danbykariMy husband and I used Tim Storm to purchase our home using my husband’s VA. The transaction was very easy. Tim worked with our Real Estate broker to make our home purchase super smooth. After our home purchase we re-financed with Tim Storm again to get an even better rate. Once again Tim proved to be extremely helpful and I would refer him to everyone I know. If you need a home loan be sure to contact Tim Storm!!

spitserkateWe worked with Tim when we bought our first house. We knew nothing, and he helped explain everything in great detail. At the start of the process we didn’t know an FHA from a jumbo and by the end we were well-informed and had a home to show for it.
Robin Lugar, San Clemente, CA
lugarrobinI have worked with Tim and his team on two mortgage transactions in the last 6 months. Tim is great to work with! Always available to answer questions, knowledgeable, great response times to emails and phone calls, patient and he has a high degree of integrity on everything he works on. He consistently goes the extra mile to make sure things stay on track, close on time and best of all, everything he quoted prior to beginning the transactions were accurate and on target. What more could you want in a Mortgage Broker? I recommend him highly and would not hesitate to use his services again. Thank you, Tim!
Mark Dean, Benecia, CA
deanmarkWhen I finally decided to use my VA benefits some 25 years after I left the USMC I searched the internet for a VA loan supplier to convert a conventional loan to a VA Loan. I tried to find one in California but ended up contacting one in Utah. They had a slick website and the Loan officer promised me smooth sailing. The next day I found Tim Storm at Emery. Tim told me some things that I did not want to hear so I checked with the oh-so-slick Utah loan officer. They assured me that Tim was wrong and we could move on. Well, Tim was not wrong. He knew from Day 1 all that was required and he told me so. After I wasted a month discovering that Tim was not only right but also had a much better company behind him, I dumped the Utah VA Loan company and began my loan process all over again with Tim. As painful as that sounds it was worth it. Tim got me the rate I wanted, the cost structure I could afford, and he was there every step of the way. Tim Storm (T-Storm!) is an absolute professional and he puts his clients first. Save yourself some pain and listen to me. Call Tim. He Knows. He Performs. Put the TStorm to work for you and you will not be sorry. Emery Financial is lucky indeed to have Tim on their staff. We as consumers are lucky to have a pro like Tim in the marketplace. As a Sales Manager myself my experience with Tim has raised my level of customer response and service in my own work. Thanks Tim. You are the best
Nicolas Welche, Irvine, CA.
welchenicI am a Navy vet and recently closed my VA loan for my new home with Emery Financial. Tim was my loan officer and he made the whole process as easy and painless as possible. Tim was extremely patient, organized, and thorough. He presented multiple loan scenarios for us via email, provided additional scenarios upon request, video explanations of scenarios and loan packages. He is very customer service oriented and ensures that his clients have all the information needed to make decisions. Tim was very professional, returned all calls, great communicator and is very transparent. I can’t recommend him highly enough for any vets out there looking for home loans. Tim did a great job of demystifying the VA home loan program.
Tony Chan, Anaheim, CA
chantonyI was lucky to have Tim to help me out on my first VA loan back in 2011. Not only is Tim a subject expert on VA and FHA, he also have a great personality! Tim even worked with me to close my loan when I was away for military training. Tim is a person that will go above and beyond to ensure his clients are served with the best customer service possible, I highly recommend Tim to anyone that’s looking to use their VA or FHA
Francesca Azzara Campbell, Realtor, Zip Realty
francescaI’m a real estate agent and just had the opportunity to work with Tim on a VA loan. He was super responsive, very communicative and awesome to work with! I feel very confident recommending him to my clients!
Byron Martinez, Anaheim, CA
I’d like to start off by thanking Tim for all the work he did into making our home purchase as smooth as possible. He was on top of all of the paperwork from day one. Tim is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, not knowing much about the VA loan process he made it easier to understand the process.

I HIGHLY recommend Tim to anyone looking for a mortgage banker. Thanks Byron!

Chris Kane, Northridge, CA.
kanechrisI recently worked with Tim on the purchase of our first home, on which we used a VA mortgage. I initially found Tim via a web search, and after being very impressed with his website and blog contacted Tim through his website. About two hours later (on a Saturday evening) Tim called me back — this was my first indication of how proactive he was. After talking with him I knew immediately he would be the right person to work with. Tim was no pressure from the start, and always was a true professional. Working with a mortgage officer (and buying a home) is a stressful process — but Tim always made me feel comfortable and at ease.

My wife and searched for our home for over 6 months, and Tim never lost patience with us, and never gave us any pressure along the way. I asked him for more loan scenarios than I could count over those six months, and I doubt there was a time it ever took him more than a couple of hours to respond with a revised loan mockup. Tim’s responsiveness to my initial inquiry was what originally impressed me, and he conducted himself in the same proactive manner throughout our transaction.

Once we found the home we were looking for, our offer was the one accepted because we promised a 30 day close. Both real estate agents were skeptical of Tim’s ability to close a VA loan in 30 days, but Tim assured me he could do it. Tim stayed in close contact with myself and both agents and the escrow office throughout the process, and kept everything on track. And sure enough we closed exactly 30 days after going under contract. I was very impressed, as were both agents in my purchase — each went out of their way to comment how impressed they were with Tim.

I would recommend Tim to anyone, and particularly other Veterans using a VA loan. Tim has tremendous knowledge of the product and the process, and his knowledge will help not only you understand the VA process, but also help you educate realtors and sellers that a VA loan is just as easy (and quick) to close as any other mortgage product.

Thanks for everything, Tim!
