It was quite apparent that Jim works hard and cares very much about the satisfaction of his clients

My husband and I closed last week on our first home with Jim Passi and Citywide Home Loans. I received Jim’s name from a friend and I am happy to say that Jim did not disappoint. As a first-time home buyer, what we knew could fill a thimble but Jim could not have done anything to make the process easier for us. He was quick to respond to all of my questions, and there were many! He explained everything along the way, sometimes several times throughout the process. It was important to Jim that we understand everything. Jim made himself available to us as much as humanly possible and there was never a time when we were waiting more than a reasonable amount of time for an answer to any question we had. He also helped us secure an appraiser and an attorney. It was quite apparent that Jim works hard and cares very much about the satisfaction of his clients. Jim and his team helped us understand everything they needed from us to make the home purchase as smooth as possible. Jim even patiently listened while I had a bit of a meltdown midway through the loan process. He continued to reassure me along the way that everything would be ok and lo and behold, it was. My husband and I are very happy with the outstanding customer service we received from Jim and his team at Citywide Home Loans. We will gladly pass his name along in the future to friends or colleagues who are interested in buying a home. Thank you, Jim and Citywide Home Loans! It was a pleasure working with you!
