“It is my great pleasure to recommend Tom Drasler's mortgage services to anyone in need of a loan. Tom is certainly one of the brightest and insightful people that I have worked with in the real estate/mortgage industry. His ability to grasp the abstract issues in a business situation while staying focused on concrete practicalities is unmatched in my experience. I believe Tom will quickly gain the respect and consideration of everyone he works with because he respects and cooperates well with others. I was particularly impressed with his follow-through and ability to problem-solve. He have a great ability to focus on what is important and then act! Tom's help with my recent loan for my home in Mission Viejo, CA came off without a hitch, and that is a tribute to him and his team who worked so hard to put it together. It demonstrated his leadership, moderating influence and out-of-the-box brainstorming ability. In today’s market, high demands are placed on people to perform to ever higher standards. I am pleased to say that, thanks to Tom's effort regarding our loan, he has exceeded my standards and expectations!” April 8, 2012
“Expert, High Integrity, Great Results”
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity “Tom Drasler and Sherri Owen went way above and beyond the call of duty when assisting me with the purchase of my first home last year. I highly recommend working with them if you would like someone knowledgeable, professional, honest, and with heart. They both spent many hours helping me to understand the industry, which included some of their own personal time. Their responses to all my inquiries were quick and direct and they made sure I was able to lock in the best interest rate. My own personal experience of purchasing a short sale home was a year-long nightmare, which I couldn’t have gotten through without them.” March 9, 2012
“Unbelievable Rates and Service”
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity “Tom and I first met when he hired me to join his sales team at Data General. I quickly came to appreciate Tom for his excellent leadership, competence and credibility with customers. Over time I learned to rely on his sound business judgment and personal integrity. With that experience, I was confident that Tom would provide superb guidance when we contacted him recently for a new home mortgage. Tom's ability to help us navigate the process made a real difference. Tom is an excellent communicator and was always available for questions, while managing the funding process so that there were no surprises and no loose ends. In summary, Tom is a top notch professional, that is always up front and truly committed to exceeding customer expectations. I would recommend Tom to anyone, without reservation! You can count on Tom to be a trusted adviser and have confidence that your loan is in the hands of one of the best in the business! James Barrette” February 13, 2012
