Extra credit for Siomara Barboza and Lori Felix for outstanding communication through the entire presses, I can say that my overall experience was excellent.

Siomara was a DREAM to work with. We had left for a pre-planned vacation while in the middle of trying to lock everything down with a condo purchase and Siomara walked us through al! The paperwork via phone while we did everything off of the Hotel computers. Once everything was submitted, she told us to enjoy every minute of our vacation and she would take care of it from there, which was a huge relief! Once we returned, we met with her to go over more information about the loan process. She was EXTREMELY patient, she repeated things we were confused about and answered all of our questions. She was very thorough and did everything she could to make us feel comfortable and secure with the purchase and the payments. Following this, she stayed in contact with us via email chains with our real estate agent and lawyer. Having everyone on the same page made everything less stressful for us. Siomara even came to our closing and STAYED the entire time. l had heard from many that your loan officer almost never comes to the closing, but she was there and supportive and amazing the entire time. I literally have a magnet with her info on my fridge so I can easily pass along her info to my friends and family.

Being first time home buyers, the entire process can be overwhelming. But the scariest part is definitely the money aspect. At the recommendation of a friend, we were introduced to Siomara at The Federal Savings Bank. Even before we were ready to start looking at houses, Siomara did a great job of preparing us and explaining the whole process. Once the pre-qualifying process began and through to closing, Siomara and Lori went well above our expectations. They accommodated any questions we had, paid attention to each little detail, and made the entire process as smooth and relaxing as possible. They refer to their team as “rockstars” and we couldn’t agree more!

Dear Siomara:

One more time, I want to tell you and your wonderful team, thanks a lot to get Maria's loan closed in just 30 days since she took the application. You and your great team worked really hard to get this done, helping us to resolve any and all the problems that we went through. I remembered several times that we had questions to be answered right away, and due to my client's really busy schedule, you or your assistant called us back immediately even if it was late nights or weekends with the right answer. Your professionalism showed me that you complied 100% on the terms of the loan that your offered to Maria when she took the application. It was a pleasure to work with you and I hope that this new year 2018 bring us a lot of business and we will be able to keep helping people to buy their houses.

Siomara made a difficult process look very easy. With her expertise and her supportive team she was able to assist me with the financing of my 2 flat and complete the transaction in less than 3 weeks! I was originally working with a mortgage consultant at another company where they had me chasing conditions and verifications of employment for almost 3 months before I nearly lost the property and gave up. I was told I needed to contact a professional mortgage banker named Siomara. I am so thankful I did and will be forever appreciative of her hard work and diligence throughout the process.

- Johny D. - August 2015

Siomara was like a good and trusted friend guiding me through the home buying process. Each staff member that I worked with was friendly, knowledgeable and very professional.

This letter is being written to share my great experience working with The Federal Savings Bank in Chicago, IL. The Vice-President of Mortgage Lending, Siomara Barboza, was incredible at her job and must have a great team behind her to be able to help me so much. Siomara and her team worked very quickly and professionally and helped me get a 30 year fixed loan when others could not.

I was denied previously by a lender due to the condos total investment concentration and no matter what they did they could not get me a 30 year fixed loan. I thought my hopes of buying this home was ended until I contacted Siomara and she took over. Within a couple short days she called me back and said that The Federal Savings Bank could get me a 30 year fixed loan at a great rate.

I would like to thank you and express my deep appreciation for your services in my refinancing the loan on my house. I am grateful for your taking the time to discuss and meticulously explore the best options for me, explaining every single number and detail, and guide and advise me beyond the loan itself. As you know, to me, the refinancing of the loan was too serious of a matter to handle online, over the phone and impersonally communicating with some distant loan officer, who is knows where in this big and wide country. I had spoken to my long time banker regarding this concern of mine. My banker had recommended you and spoke very highly of you.
