Referred to me by friends, Mike was the second person I had talked to when thinking about buying my first home. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous about this purchase, and after just one conversation with Mike, I felt immediately at ease. He talked me through every single potential situation I might encounter when buying a home, even running tons of numbers and giving me an idea of what my mortgage might look like. In addition to being completely thorough, this guy really knows his stuff! Once I decided to pull the trigger, Mike was there every step of the way, answering endless questions and emails from me. He was on the ball with absolutely every form and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process! My loan and closing went through without a hitch, and I owe it all to Mike for taking such good care of me. I would recommend him a thousand times over. Thanks, Mike, for all your help!

Mike is an incredible mortgage broker! My husband and I have worked with Mike on three properties in and around Chicago. Mike is incredibly keen to the market, educates his client on the pros/cons of any decision, and ultimately empowers the client to make the decision.

Mike is the best!! [I] found him on Yelp and reached out. He was the second lender I engaged during my home buying process and the difference was night and day! His customer service was extraordinary. As a first-time homebuyer, [I] did not know all the ins and outs, and he took the time to walk through every detail, even at the onset when I wasn’t sure what direction I was going. He did a great job of keeping me informed through the whole process. Would HIGHLY recommend him!

As a licensed real estate broker, I have worked with many mortgage lenders, and was never confident about using any of them on my own purchase, until I met Mike. When you find a property you like, you are only half way there. The mortgage process can be tedious and stressful, and Mike was always there to make sure I was in ahead of the process and made sure we got the deal done. His personality makes him a blast to work with, and his knowledge in the field makes sure you get the lowest rate and best experience. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Our experience with Mike was ridiculously awesome. As first-time homebuyers, my husband and I had no idea what we were doing, how much we might need, and what the process might entail. Enter Mike. This guy is honest, patient, thorough, and great about getting back to you quickly. He also lays out everything up front so you’re not caught off guard with anything. “Wait, we have to pay what?!” None of that here. If anything, he overestimates everything to eliminate any surprises, which was super helpful. We also never felt pressured about anything or embarrassed to ask questions either. An added bonus is that he’s really funny. Like really funny. Bottom line: I’m not exaggerating when I say that Mike made it possible (and fun) for us to get in our first home. I honestly anticipated Old Testament-style misery that would drag on forever when we first started out (because that’s what everyone told us to expect), but really I’ve had more trying times at the post office. Again, that’s all Mike. We can’t thank him enough for all that he’s done and would highly recommend him to ANYONE.

Mike really is the best. I was given Mike’s name by my Realtor when I started looking into buying a condo. I called him after checking out his Yelp reviews because they were all so incredibly positive and I am so glad I did! When I began looking into purchasing a condo, I had no idea what I was doing. However, Mike made the entire process of obtaining a mortgage as pleasant as possible. He was patient in answering the millions of questions I asked and enthusiastic about making sure he was doing everything he could to make the experience easy. Mike truly made the entire process easy and he helped me get a fantastic interest rate. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Mike is terrific. For any service provider, I appreciate good expectation management, strong process and good communication. Mike is top notch in all aspects. His communication really stands out. He gave great information at every stage of the process, and if we ever had a question or a request, like a letter from our lender, his response was usually within minutes. In our case, we had quite a few curveballs such as an uncooperative landlord, and dealing with a relocation company as the seller and Mike went above and beyond the financing aspect to help us keep our sale on track and our wits about us. Highly recommended.

Mike Facchini made financing our first home together a breeze. I went to Yelp to solicit feedback on mortgage companies in the area and saw all the great reviews for Mike. I can now say firsthand that Mike is incredibly knowledgeable, personable and all sorts of on top of it. Anyone looking for someone to make a complex and painful process look easy and even a little bit fun, give him a call!

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Mike. My husband and I had a million questions about our mortgage and the home buying process in general, as most first-time homebuyers do, and Mike was with us from beginning to end. He walked us through each document line by line and answered all of our questions via email almost immediately after they were asked. Home buying can be stressful, but Mike made us at ease with the process. We had a lot of fun buying our first place, and a lot of that has to do with the confidence we had in Mike.

Mike was a total professional and was extremely helpful from the very beginning. I really appreciated the high level of responsiveness (I don’t think he is ever “off the clock”) throughout the entire process and his ability to follow through with everything he said. These are truly rare qualities to find. It was an easy process for us and we would definitely work with Mike again.
