You can just forget about any other mortgage broker in the PDX area. Darren goes against all of the stereotypes you have ever heard about those shady mortgage brokers. Darren worked with me and my lousy credit to not only get me a refi loan...But, he got me a refi loan and then found a better one that had a .5% less interest rate than the one we were approved for. My wife and I ran up a decent amount of credit card debt and when the rates went down, we decided to refinance our home and pay off the credit cards with the equity our house had earned. I'm on tour with a show and I use the address of our home office in NYC to get the mail forwarded to me...Well, this became a red flag to the lender and denied us a loan. Darren went and fought for us and got the loan reinstated. Then I didn't hear from Darren for a few days and I called him to see how things were going. He then told me he was working on another loan that was a half of a percentage point less than the one he fought to get reinstated for us...So, instead of settling on a loan just because our credit was kinda lousy, he found an even better deal and we have never been happier and less stressed out about our finances. We have our credit cards all paid off and our credit score just continues to increase each month. We had enough money to take an extended Christmas weekend trip to NYC and bought my wife a much needed new computer....All of this bundled into a loan which is actually less per month than out former mortgage payment.....\r
You will never do business with any mortgage broker better than Darren Balogh. He will work with you if you have great credit or crappy credit. He will give you his undivided attention and make you feel no matter what your situation, that you will get a loan. I can't say enough about Darren...he definitely made a big change in our life for the better and I can't thank him enough....If he is reading this...I want to say, ""THANK YOU DARREN!!!""
Pros: Darren will work with you no matter your credit score, down payment, etc.
Cons: I can't think of any
