Home Loan was started to help our customers achieve their goals, and we're proud of our track record. But don't take our word for it. Here's what some of our customers have to say:

"Working with Mario [Loan Originator] at Home Loan Investment Bank made the often rocky road of refinancing smooth and almost easy. Once we sent our information to Mario he reviewed it quickly, and promptly let us know if anything was missing. We were in Arizona, the property we were refinancing was in Maine, and Mario was in Rhode Island, but working with Mario was like working with a next door neighbor!"

– Dave M.

 "In this day and age, it is rare to find true kindness, consideration and courtesy. Emily [Loan Originator] was all of those things and more. I just wanted you, her manager, to know what a really excellent job she did for us. Thank you.

– D. Gayle & Robert W.

"This is just to thank you for all of your help. We finally closed on the houses! Please know that we are very thankful to you for helping us achieve a 'new' dream in America. My husband came to America 18 years ago with one dollar in his pocket and now he owns three houses... thanks to Home Loan Bank."

– Carolina B.

"Thanks to Kristin [Loan Originator] and your bank loan, this New Year is certainly looking brighter for me and my children. I know that I am one of the many thousands of people your bank deals with on a daily basis, but I never felt like a number or an account."

– Maggie C.

"I am writing to thank your for the opportunity for us to finally bring our previously high mortgage rate down. Due to financial difficulties over the past several years, until now we have been unable to do so. The opportunity your institution has made available for us is making all the difference in us securing our financial future."

– Karen T.

 "Thank you so much for all your help on our recent loan. Your professionalism, knowledge and great customer services made it all happen."

 – Frank and Eileen S.

"I closed on a home refinance with Home Loan Investment Bank in May. Mario [Loan Originator] made the process easy and painless. Mario and Home Loan were great to work with. It was just like your neighborhood bank on the phone and over email, and they were always available to move the process forward. This was truly a once in a lifetime refinance opportunity. I have the same monthly payment for a 15 year fixed mortgage versus my old 30 year fixed mortgage. Thank you. "

– Nils M.

"Thank you for superior professionalism and just plain human compassion throughout my refinancing process."

– Sonja S.

"I have been a Real Estate Broker for over 24 years, dealt with a lot of banks, bankers and brokers and I have never been treated so kindly."

– Evelyn B.

"Lance [Loan Originator] was extremely helpful, answered all of our questions promptly, whether asked by phone or fax, and his attention to detail and follow up were commendable. It may be a level of excellence that you expect from all of your agents, but we found it exceptional and worthy of comment."

– Harold S.

"We have told other people about the great way we were treated and about the smooth refinancing experience your company and Emily [Loan Originator] provided and have referred them all to you for help in refinancing their home."

–Gay and John B.

New technology, auto financing important for buyers

Posted on Monday, April 14, 2014 at 10:27:07 AM

Technology has become a common trend in today's vehicles, with more manufacturers turning to devices and gadgets to attract buyers. However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reported that one piece of technology - the rear camera - has been instrumental in preventing serious accidents. In some cases, these upgrades can be exactly what you need to be safe while driving, but in others, it may just be one more distraction that'll take your eyes off the road.

Finding the perfect car for you can be complicated, but thanks to affordable auto financing and a wealth of options, your dream ride is out there. In order to help you find it, Christine Dikdan, of Home Loan Investment Bank, offered some crucial tips, tricks and insights into shopping with new technology in mind. She explained that the technology in your car comes down to personal preference. A loaded car costs more, so you have to decide what those features are worth to you.

"The basics - such as air bags and seatbelt restraints - are in the 'vital' part category and have saved many lives," noted Dikdan. "The full screen GPS, although convenient, is definitely a distraction that can take your eyes from the road causing accidents - think texting while driving. Cameras, on the larger SUV type vehicles for backing up, although a relatively new safety feature, I agree with."

Overall, vehicle technology is changing at a rapid pace. Today's cars come equipped with parallel parking assist systems. While these features can make for attractive choices, you should make sure your new ride is exactly what you need before applying for auto financing.

"The primary purpose of any vehicle is to get from point A to point B in a reliable and safe manner," added Dikdan. "This country has been going without vehicle entertainment options and GPS for a long time. As with anything, pros and cons exist."

She continued to note the importance of technology in regard to resale value. Primarily, how safety features are a must for either a new car or a used one, but other, more entertainment-based options aren't as vital. So, when you are in the market for a new vehicle, consider the growing trends in automotive technology.
