Carlyle Financial has an incredible team, both in terms of service and knowledge of the mortgage industry. Not only do they find you the best loan options possible, they make the process go very smoothly. The team is extremely organized and responsive. I couldn't have been happier.
I've purchased two homes with Carlyle financial. The first was a triplex investment. I was told by multiple people that myself and my mom couldn't get a loan on a $1.6 million investment unless we put down 40%. Robert was the only person who was able to find us a loan and not only that, got it for about 1% less than we were expecting with putting down 30%. Because of this, when I moved I went immediately to Carlyle. I was able to get a loan quickly and their method of dragging files into a website was sooooo much easier than emailing them all as I have had to do in the past. I couldn't recommend them more.
We made a home purchase with a jumbo mortgage with Carlyle Financial. Robert and Katheryn are fantastic to work with. They are very knowledgeable, professional and responsive.
Robert Cohan and his team made the refi process easy; well at least manageable. THEY ARE AMAZING. Highly recommend.
Robert and Devin provided outstanding service and guidance throughout the entire refinance process. I would highly recommend this team.
