Mariano relocated to San Diego from his longtime home in Santa Cruz, CA in July of 2012 to join the Veterans United Home Loans of San Diego branch. After 4 years as a Processor, and 2 more as a Processing Supervisor, Mariano transitioned into his current role as Loan Officer. When away from the office, Mariano enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 sons, playing disc golf and reading about economics and politics.
At our request, Mariano has kept in touch for the past couple of years to inform us of potential opportunities that might be of interest. He has always been respectful of our requests without any pressure to talk us into something we may not really want. Mariano provided us with the options we asked for, and responded quickly with Loan figures and instructions that were easy for us to understand in making an informed and final decision. Mariano is knowledgeable, professional, and best of all...comfortable to work with!
Mariano went above and beyond to help with this process. He willingly worked with my schedule sometimes late in the evening to answer questions or any needs I had. He was always professional and courteous.
Mariano is unmatched as our loan specialist. Incredibly grateful for his guidance and advice throughout the entire process. Always there when you need him, most of all patient when explaining process/numbers we might not full understand. He deserves a raise!
Mariano was very patient with me over the years as I went back and forth on what I wanted to do. He constantly kept in contact with me even though my plans changed multiple times; i even had a loan officer change (they handed me off to Mariano). He was really easy to work with and helped me weigh multiple options. I'd absolutely recommend him to friends.
Mariano is always so patient and kind in explaining things that are difficult to understand. He is also very smart with numbers and is able to quickly provide loan estimates. We got our original home loan with Veterans United, and I was so impressed with Mariano's outstanding customer service skills, that when I was thinking about refinancing he was the first person I reached out to. Thank you, Mariano! I would also like to shout out to Melody Tice, our Transaction Coordinator, as well. She is also very helpful, and went above and beyond to help us. Thank you, Melody!
Compared to other lenders I was working with I like that Mariano was true to his word when it came to the loan estimate. Also was able to get our appraisal and inspection covered. Very thankful for that.
Mariano has worked with us for over two years. He has always been available for questions, concerns and hypotheticals for all of the properties we have looked at during that time. Mariano was a great person to work with and helped us finally find a great home! We are very grateful to have worked with him.
Absolutely phenomenal! Constant updates, easy to contact him with any questions, kept us informed at all times, found ways to help us that we would’ve never thought of. Friendly. Helpful. & just overall such a great experience for our first time buying a home. He has set the bar high & should we need to do this again, I will definitely be seeking him as our loan officer again. Even my agent wishes to send referrals his way because it was the smoothest transaction she has ever experienced & that wouldn’t have been possible without his help. I couldn’t be more pleased with choosing him as our loan officer! I am pleased to know others will get the outstanding level of service we did by choosing him.
