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.

Smart safety considerations to keep in mind while shopping for a new vehicle

Posted on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 12:21:29 PM

The topic of safety has been on the minds of drivers everywhere. General Motors is in the midst of one of its largest recalls in history, and buying the right vehicle in terms of economy, functionality and safety remains a priority. According to Kelley Blue Book, car shoppers rate a number of safety features - recall advisor, backup cameras, stolen vehicle recovery - highly when looking for their next purchase.

When you are on the lookout for affordable auto financing and great vehicles for sale, it can help to think about these elements. Naturally, safety is important whether you are in the market for a weekend sports car or a reliable van for the family. In order to help you during this process, Home Loan Investment Bank's Christine Dikdan recently offered some crucial advice. For starters, she explained that while avoiding accidents should be the goal, there are several features that can prove beneficial.

"Crash performance, airbags and cameras are my top three," according to Dikdan. "However, it is always best to avoid the crash in the first place by driving responsibly and leaving room between the vehicles surrounding you - or in front of you - while on highways and local roads. Staying alert and focused on the road (no cell phones - text or talk) combined with a be-ready-for-anything attitude hopefully will prevent use of the vehicle crash and vehicle airbag enhancements."

In addition to safety features, you'll want to make sure your vehicle is in its best possible condition. A lack of maintenance can lead to problems, and a proactive approach can keep you safer on the road and prevent costly breakdowns.

"Regularly scheduled maintenance and vehicle inspections by a qualified and reliable mechanic can go a long way to avoiding more expensive repairs down the road," she noted. "Tire rotation/replacement when necessary, as well as vehicle alignment, is very important for the overall stability and control of your vehicle. Brakes are also very important, and any issues should be addressed and corrected immediately. The faster you are driving, the more crucial these elements are for your safety, as well as the safety of others."

With this in mind, consider these safety tips the next time you are searching for auto financing and a new vehicle.
