Testimonials

The positives (there were NO NEGATIVES) were:

1. structure of our loan – easy to understand – a short 20 min call (even while in a car on a trip) was all we needed to understand how the loan we chose was BEST

2. timely responses – normally within hrs. or less – great service and responsiveness

3. overall professionalism – we have had 5 homes – refinance a couple times over the years – this was hands down the best company to deal with – from Jenny to the underwriter to the person that came out to explain and get all forms signed – 100% an “A Team effort”.

THANKS SO MUCH!

I will highly recommend you to all my friends and relatives… I learned lots from you, seems I can learn more to do the banking job someday. Few more years for retirement.

Have a nice day.

Please express my appreciation to Jennifer Katz for her exceptional service and support during our recent home refinance in Oct 2013. From the first call, Jennifer provided exceptional service, was friendly and attentive to our needs, and answered all of our many questions.

A home refinance is an emotion filled activity. Once the family name is out there, bankers inundate the family with phone calls. We received calls from dozens of relentless bankers and some from the Federal Savings Bank (FSB) employees. The FBS calls eventually stopped once I convince them that Jennifer was taking care of us. In addition to the calls, there are numerous forms to read, fill out, copy and fax. We were concerned with personal information and no matter how smooth you’d like things to go glitches always arise. Finally, I should say that before this process began, our “cup” was already running over with medical and other issues.

This is why I’m so grateful to Jennifer for her compassion and understanding. We communicated a lot on e-mail and to a lesser extent, spoke on the phone. This worked well for me since I spend significant time at the computer. I hate to admit how many questions I asked. Jennifer didn’t always answer immediately and I didn’t expect her to – surely I wasn’t her only client. But answers always came soon.

When glitches did arise like missing forms, termite inspections, and needed hand rails on the stairs, Jennifer walked us through the process. This is the first refinance where I took a significant role. Sandra takes care of most of the paperwork but in this case it just seemed more appropriate for me to communicate with Jennifer and I had the capability to receive and transmit data.

I asked Sandra what stood out in her mind about Jennifer’s performance. She said Jennifer wasn’t pushy, she was very knowledgeable, friendly and kind, and always available. I think she had a lot more positives but you get the point.

For me a highlight of Jennifer’s service happened just before closing. Sandra and I took a trip to Orlando to view a timeshare. We had no intention of buying but once got there and saw the place our minds changed. I told Sandra that I’d call Jennifer. If I could roll the cost into our refinance, we’d buy the timeshare. Jennifer said yes and took care of everything. She made the process seem simple to us though I’m sure it was a significant for her. I do not believe the process could have gone smoother and that was in large part due to Jennifer’s professionalism, knowledge, kindness, availability, and exceptional service. Thanks You!

Thanks again for the great service. It was a painless process and you did a great job keeping me up to date on the status. Thanks again.

- Jason A
I was very pleased with the process. While it took a while, with my schedule most things do. I thought you went above and beyond with all your help through the process. You don't know how much this will and has already helped my family. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to keep the house and farm at one point. Getting that payment down and no payments for two months has helped my get some back on track. Thank you for ALL. I will recommend you to any of my fellow veterans and already have.

- Jeff E
Thank you Jennifer Katz for your professionalism and hard work. You made the process painless. Thank you for staying on top of everything. I will recommend you to my friends and family. Look forward to working with you again in the future.

I would like your supervisor or manager to know what an awesome job you have done in getting everything completed and keeping me in the loop.

As I said yesterday on the phone, I also work in customer service and the service you have provided has been exceptional and has been more than anything I could have ever ask for. We didn’t do the refinance earlier because I was truly scared of the process. You have made it so easy.

I wanted to let you know about the quality of my professional experience with Ms. Jennifer Katz. She was exceptionally kind and gracious during her interactions with me, a feat which I did not make easy. Ms. Katz treated me with respect and extraordinary consideration. She is very knowledgeable, remarkably helpful and has the uncommonly diplomatic social skills necessary to manage difficult behavior, a fact to which I can testify. Ms. Katz’s efficiency is admirable, especially since despite the speed with which she works, she is still able to make the customer feel valued and appreciated. I was emotionally unstable after the death of my husband and consequently very volatile. Ms. Katz still managed to maintain a positive attitude and to be a model of courtesy and compassion. She might have helped me complete the refinancing of my loan in record time had I not been so petulant and irascible.

Ms. Katz is an asset to your organization. Perhaps the best compliment I can issue, though, is that I intend to see if she will accept me as a client for repeat business.


- Melanie W.
Wonderful, thank you :) I was getting a tad bit nervous. I seem to live under Murphy's Law lately. If it can, it does!

I'm keeping your contact Info, If I have anyone who is looking a mortgage or refi, I will definately refer them to you!!!!

Thanks again for everything,

- Michele B

I couldn’t have asked for a better communicator, organizer, or more helpful person than you. You were awesome….!!!! I really don’t have any negatives except for the reams of paper I had to sign but we can thank our wonderful government, both federal and state, for that.

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you about the great process and experience that I had with Jennifer. Even though I really am not sure how she got my phone number she called me to talk to me about the VA rate reduction program. At first I was a little hesitant only because all of the fraud going on in the world and where I am also in banking we are probably even more suspicious. Anyways, she made me feel very comfortable and I asked questions that she was able to answer like a "real banker" would. I was amazed at the process and that she stayed right on top of what she needed and guided me thru the whole process. She even emailed me when my loan was funded. She was right there until the end. She is a great employee and person and wanted to let someone know that she is making a difference is people's lives. I especially appreciate her commitment and friendliness as I worked for the #1 bank in New England and I look for and expect great customer experience and I feel that I got that from Jenny.

I also commend The Federal Savings Bank for offering the no cost closing costs for the Veterans on their VA loans. I think Jennifer being a veteran as well makes her the right person for her job too.

- Teresa D.
Thank you Jennifer the professionalism that you provided in trying to get my loan processed was remarkable! You truly are a leader in your field and I wish you much success. You are what a professional should be: quick to respond, great at gathering all necessary components, reliable, friendly and a lady who knows her business! I wish you well and once again thank you!!
