It is always hard when purchasing a new home, so many options and tons of questions. I am pretty methotical and have my own set of dos and don’ts type of questions. Max was fatastic to work with. If I had any questions, the response time from Max or one of his team members was incredible.

The Good: :: local business! :: Max and his team move EXTREMELY fast.

EXTREMELY. their turnaround on a loan is much better than a ton of others out there on the market. :: Max and his team work extremely hard to get the paperwork through the system as efficiently as possible. they are constantly in #beastmode and it is impressive. they have things down to an art. :: they allow you to supply required documentation digitally, which simplifies a lot. no more mailing, no more faxing…just upload! bonus. :: have i mentioned how damn good they are at moving things along the homebuying process? The Bad: :: none The Ugly: :: none Would I use them again? If I am back in the market for a house and need a lender, you can bet I will go with Max and his team again. I’ve used them twice now and will continue to refer them to anyone and everyone. This business is IN.

I cannot begin to say how AMAZING this team is. We were first time home buyers and we were very confused with the whole process.

Amanda S. and her team answered every question we ever had. Their team was on point every step of the way. We were also recommended an excellent realtor by them aswell. We had some isses during the process but they kept us on schedule the entire time and made this process less of a stressor than thought it would be. One thing I can say for sure, Amanda, Krystal and Lesley, they made this such an easy process for our family we wouldnt choose any other company but them if we ever bought another house in the future. Choose Charlie’s Angels…. excuse me… The Leaman Team! Now if they could only help us unpack! (Just kidding!)

we were thrilled with Max & Lending!

We’ve used Max for both of our last two home mortgage loans, and BOTH times he’s been able to figure out a way to help us when others were saying no or giving us less favorable terms. The first loan we did with him, the credit market was beginning to freeze up, and he figured out how to make a deal work when 8 other brokers told us no. He’s really, truly a cut above everybody else – he’s smarter, more motivated, and more willing to go the extra mile to make a deal work. We’ll never go anywhere else.

Best service ever

They have professional and educated staffs and provided the best service I ever had before. It was quick and painless close. I was buying a condo and I thought it will not be easy to get loan, but they did in shorter time with best rate. They are very upfront and clear about all cost. I definitely will use them again for next time.

Max took us step-by-step through purchasing our first home near Austin, Texas.

12/19/2016 by Michelle W.
Location: Driftwood

He was very responsive to all of our questions and made the home-buying process easy. We worked exclusively by phone and email since we were relocating from 5 time zones away. I highly recommend Max to anyone considering buying property in the Austin area.

What an easy experience we had with the Leaman Team.

12/19/2016 by Jeff B.
Location: Austin

It took us over 6 months to find the right house but Jori Stern and team were friendly, responsive, and efficient throughout the entire process. We did not experience a single problem from pre-approval to closing. In fact, at our request, we closed a few days earlier than originally planned. We are very happy that we chose the Leaman Team for the purchase of our home and I would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking to purchase property in the Austin area. Thank you to Jori and the entire Leaman Team.

I would recommend Max’s team and Jori Stern, in particular to anyone trying to get a long-distance or high-stakes relocation done.

12/19/2016 by Gabe J.
Location: Austin

At the beginning of our home search, I didn’t fully appreciate how disastrous it would be to have a last-minute glitch with our loan. Jori is solid: She’s direct (but totally nice), she is lightning quick to respond to emails or calls, and she and her team are meticulous and intense about making sure every detail is perfectly aligned towards meeting the close date. Incidentally, I called Jori based on reviews here on Yelp. A month or two later I called realtors, and chose to work with another Yelp superstar, Don Powers with Dwell Realty. I told him I was working with a mortgage person I also found on Yelp, and he said “let me guess — Jori Stern.” Not only did he rave about her ability to get deals closed, she had just done a mortgage for him.

Max and the Leaman Team made the mortgage application process as easy and painless as it could possibly be.

12/19/2016 by Brad B.
Location: Austin, Texas

To top it off, they gave me a great rate that was better than I found elsewhere and were incredibly responsive and helpful to all of my questions and requests. I would not hesitate to work with the Leaman Team again and recommend them wholeheartedly.

They did an excellent job walking me through the process, and were very patient and quick when answering questions.

It’s hard to imagine a better experience. Max Leaman is trustworthy, go for it :)

Here’s the thing. Buying a house, especially your first house, is super stressful. Working with Jori Stern from the Leaman team is the exact opposite

10/10/2016 by J.S.
Location: Austin

My realtor, Jane Amschwand, recommended Jori and it was a no brainer to go with her. She walked me through my options, made it super simple and easy to get all the right documents together to get approved, and then speedily churned out the pre-approval letters until I finally got a house I love in this crazy Austin market. Nothing about buying a house was simple, but everything about my financing was, I felt super comfortable going in to close, and I would use Jori again in a heartbeat (though I sincerely hope not to be buying a house again any time soon!).

Our realtor, Lauren Yoder was one who referred me to Max Leaman after going through the nerve-wracking process with other lender.

10/10/2016 by Terry H.
Location: Austin

Max assured that we would be fine. It was a blessing to have him to help us go through the process. He kept us in the loop all the way until the closing. I would definitely recommend anyone to have him as your lender.

My partner and I just bought our first house here in Austin. Max and his team made it happen. Sent Max an email with our difficult situation.

10/04/2016 by Jason S.
Location: Austin, TX

He personally emailed me the next day telling me he understood our dilemma perfectly and had a creative solution to get it done.

3 weeks later, we closed. I understand from our many friends that purchased a home ahead of us that to close in 3 weeks with no problems is difficult, much less navigating a difficult property.

Thanks to Max for all your hard work. I promise to tell all of our friends, coworkers and complete strangers about you. I wish you all continued success for making our dream come true.

We purchased and refinanced our home with the Leaman Team.

09/30/2016 by Ann P.
Location: Austin

When we had trouble with another lender when we purchased our home, I didn’t think twice about contacting the Leaman Team after reading other reviews. Jori was great to work with both times and we would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Awesome excellent service. I was in a serious time crunch for closing.

09/29/2016 by Iqbal Y.
Location: Austin

These guys worked miracle and closed in record time. I would recommend them to anyone in a heart beat.

I can’t say enough good things about Max and the Leaman team.

08/30/2016 by Amy W.
Location: Austin

We bought our home in Austin while still living in San Francisco, and Max and his team were there for us from the first moment we started exploring this move in the Fall of 2015, up until we signed the closing contract in late May of 2016. Max was recommended to me by my real estate agent and I’m so glad she did. Max coached me through the process and gave me very solid advice about how to go about getting our first-ever mortgage (as life-long renters, my husband and I had no clue) and was always a phone call away throughout this extremely stressful process. He even called me as he was leaving for vacation just to check that we were OK as he could tell I was a nervous wreck. I trust his opinions completely–he is almost like speaking with a financial advisor–and he always steered me in the sensible direction (even if I didn’t always want to hear what he had to say). Max can be very direct, but he’s got a sense of humor and I always knew he was looking out for our best interests. If you want a mortgage broker who is honest and trustworthy, and knows the business inside out, Max and the team at Leaman Realty are a great choice. We will be going back to Max when the time comes to refinance and look forward to working with them again. Oh, and we love our new home and Austin, too!

Recently completed my second home buying experience with the Leaman Team.

08/26/2016 by Steven D.
Location: Georgetown

Terrific both times. I will say that I don’t like writing reviews but the Leaman Team really are exceptional at what they do. If you are shopping around for a lender and not sure how to choose – then definitely call the Leaman Team and see what they can do for you. I bet you will be glad you did.

It went very well.

08/25/2016 by Brett L.
Location: Sugar Land

The team was prompt, professional, and courteous. No complaints!

I would definitely recommend The Leaman Team.

08/23/2016 by Chris K.

A pleasure to work with and great communication!

Initially going with big bank due to “sticking to what we know” since we bought our previous homes through big bank.

08/22/2016 by Charlie B.
Location: Austin, Texas

This time we decided to give Max a try since they were local and came recommended. Very smooth process and they kept me informed so I knew what was going on all the time. Have not met the Lehman Team in person but they are very nice and cordial over the phone while explaining the barage of questions that we had. Lastly, but most important is that they stuck to the closing date and we closed exactly on time. Really positive experience.

When my husband and I finally found a house, the Leaman Team was there, especially the sweet and intelligent Amanda Stewart.

08/22/2016 by Evdokia S.
Location: Austin

She had been helping us for months with our house estimates, was always timely in her responses, and was never anything less than professional and knowledgeable. She helped us secure a great rate and loan amount. The Leaman Team is truly enhanced by having Ms. Stewart on their team. A paragon of excellent customer service and with a love of helping others, she has made working with mortgage companies an insightful process.

Helped us refinance our home. The transaction went as smoothly as can be.

08/22/2016 by Amy B.
Location: Austin

The Leaman team handles everything electronically. They communicate very clearly and early in the process on any follow-up items needed to complete the transaction. Even responded to questions after hours. After going through a horrible experience two years ago trying to refinance my home – I was so pleased to find the Leaman team. They made a stressful process very easy. We will be repeat customers

We have closed 3 home loans with The Max Leaman Team and can’t imagine using anyone else.

08/22/2016 by Steve S.
Location: Salado, Texas

Great processes and people to ensure a excellent experience every time. The Leaman Team was able to find us the best rates. Each closing was smooth with no surprises. Max was able to provide valuable input on how to structure our offer on the homes we were purchasing to maximize our offer. We had a few items change on our side during one of the home purchases and The Leaman Team jumped right in and provided a solution that allowed us to keep moving forward with out impacting closing.

Easy Process

08/22/2016 by Erika
Location: Austin, TX

As a first time homebuyer, Team Leaman was so responsive. I could call or email any time with any question. They would take the time to explain to me, in detail, all of my questions and they gave advice when asked. I apprecited the step by step process and documents they sent outlining what I could expect during the lending process.

I would definitely recommend their motgage lending servcies.


Jori and Max rule, Rocket loans drools.

08/19/2016 by Adam M.

Go with the Leaman team. Easy, responsive, and fight to earn your business. 5 stars!

The Max Leaman team exceeded all of my expectations!

08/10/2016 by Zohra C.
Location: Austin

This was my first home-buying experience, and I was nervous about the process, the costs, and the speed with which I could secure a home loan. The team was always prompt and courteous in addressing all of my concerns, and reassured me that I would be able to close within a certain period of time. In the end, the Max Leaman team lived up to every one of their promises, and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing services from mortgage lending professionals!

The process was very smooth. Max and his team were responsive, thorough and very helpful throughout the mortgage process.

08/10/2016 by Doug W.
Location: Austin
Neighborhood: Deep Eddy

We closed on time and without any problems. We downsized in Austin, TX, and bought a small, beautiful house in the Deep Eddy neighborhood. Through the recommendation of our excellent Realtor, Carol Dochen, we used Max Leaman for our mortgage.

This team is GREAT!! I usually have problems and delays as I am self employed but they had preapproval letter within a day.

08/10/2016 by Ginnefer V.
Location: Buda

They always kept in contact with me. Erika was so prompt and explained the whole process. I have never worked with a more professional and speedy mortgage company. We even closed EARLY!! Highly recommend and will use only them in the future. Thanks so much!

These guys literally saved my life. This is to thank the tireless efforts of Amanda and Janey at Max Leaman Mortgage.

08/02/2016 by Derek S.
Location: Cedar Park

Amanda worked with me for months to finally get approved. She responded to every email and answered every phone call. She was knowledgeable about the complexities of the approval process I was going through, and gave me all the right advice on how to get it done. Once approved, every member of the team at Leaman worked like mad to quickly get me through the escrow and underwriting process, because I was racing against the clock on a hard move date. If they hadn’t stepped up to meet my specific needs, I would not by typing this review from the study in my new house in Cedar Park. Thank you for everything, as my family can now enjoy living in the home we always wanted, in a neighborhood where the kids and grow and enjoy life. Thanks for your professionalism, your quick responsiveness, and also for your perpetual great attitude! Thanks for everything!

I will keep this very simple: you won’t find a better lender than Max Leaman Austin Mortgage.

07/28/2016 by Jody K.
Location: Austin

Not in Austin, not in Texas, not in the U.S., and, I believe, not in the world. I did extensive research to find, literally, the world’s best lender. And it ended up that lender was right here in Austin. Jori, Meagan, and everyone else who helped me made the lending process absolutely seamless. I felt confident through every step, from the beginning to closing, that I was in the best hands. My refi situation involved some complicated details. But this team performed like the pros that they are. I closed on time, and with no hidden fees. Skip your research and just go to Max Leaman. Jori Stern and Meagan went above and beyond. I am so glad that I chose them to be my lender; their customer service is the best.

Max Leaman and his team are a pleasure to work with!

07/26/2016 by Christina C.
Location: Houston

Jori Stern has helped us with 3 transactions and each one was a breeze thanks to her. She is very quick to respond and answer all of your questions making the experience stress free. The entire team is amazing!!

How do you describe a situation where someone like Max and his team help you when you felt like the situation was hopeless?

07/26/2016 by Teresa M.
Location: Cedar Creek

I cant speak highly enough on how they worked to secure our new home for us. They even worked to get funding for our buyer when his financing fell through – in the eleventh hour prior to scheduled closing! Max and his team were a true blessing to my family. We got the home we wanted, our buyer got the home he wanted and all ended well. All because the Leaman team went above and beyond for all involved to make it happen. I recommend them to everyone I know who is seeking home ownership and in need of financing. The Leaman team is the above reproach.

Max saved my home purchase!!

07/25/2016 by Jody S.
Location: Round Rock

I had started with another lender that had assured me that all was well with my loan and just as docs were getting written up, everything fell apart. My real estate agent reached out to Max as soon as this occurred and within an hour I had my loan transferred over to the Leaman Group. The bottom line is that Max knows his business and keeps up on changes within the real estate market and understands adversity that comes with every borrower. He had my loan closed 3 weeks later. I cannot thank Max and his team enough for stepping in and helping out. His entire team were very responsive, thorough and just on the ball. I will be recommending the Leaman Group to any and all. Thanks again Leaman Group!!!

Like so many others, we were looking to purchase a home in the ever growing popular town of Round Rock TX, and had been prequalified several times, only to have them drag their feet when we bid on a home and the actual preapproval time came. In desperation, I searched and found The Leaman Team, where went right to work and ROCKED our socks off lol! They got the job done so efficiently, that other companies need to take lessons from them :) Now we are in the house of our dreams and very happy :) HIGH FIVE to the whole Leaman Team – keep up the great work and God bless!!!

Working with Max and my loan officer Jori was a great pleasure.

07/19/2016 by Jun C.

They were quick to respond to any questions you may have and made sure I was informed throughout the whole process. Would definitely recommend for first time home buyers!

Max Leaman and his team did an amazing job guiding us through the loan process.

My wife and I were being relocated for our jobs and Max and his superb staff made everything easy and convenient for us. The Austin housing market moves at a fast pace, and Max Leaman at Lending had the fastest response time to any and all our questions and concerns. They quickly got us pre-approved and ready to offer on a house. We would like to thank Max and his team for everything they did. The entire staff was great and we appreciate the kind service.

The entire Leaman team is absolutely outstanding!

07/18/2016 by PJ R.
Location: Austin area

Our previous mortgage with a different lender was a complete nightmare so I know how important a professional and competent lender is, and the Leaman team is on point in every way! Amanda helped us from beginning to end. Every question was answered promptly and efficiently. I really cant say enough about Amanda and the entire team!

I highly recommend Max and his Team for your mortgage financing.

07/17/2016 by Laura M.
Location: Round Rock

They were exceptional and did everything they said they would do! We were on a time crunch (21 days) to get everything done in time to close by the end of the month per the builders request. Max went above and beyond to make sure it was done and we closed 3 days before the end of the month! Their service was so amazing my realtor will be recommending them as well!

Max and team were great!

07/15/2016 by Brandon S.
Location: Austin, Texas

They are quick at responding to all my messages and they went the extra mile to help me get the best rate on my mortgage. Highly recommended!

Jori and her team were awesome. I chose them because they delivered the best customer service.

07/15/2016 by Kobe A.
Location: Austin

They were quick to respond to my questions and help me find the best rate and terms for me. I’ve worked with a few brokers/banks in the past they are in a class of their own. A friend of mine had recommended them to me and would easily recommend them to any of my friends and family.

The team at Max Leaman were superb in getting me through the entire loan process with ease and confidence.

07/15/2016 by Julie E.
Location: Austin, TX

The communication from all of the team was outstanding and I always knew where we were in the process- which was important, as we were striving for a 30 day close and a holiday weekend sandwiched in the middle. They worked hand and hand with my real estate agent, insurance company, and title company, so that there wasn’t an undue stress in what is usually a stressful situation. Thanks to all for getting me into my home quickly, courteously, and happily!

We recently moved from Florida to Austin and used the services of Max Leaman.

07/14/2016 by Geoff P.
Location: Austin

Both my wife and I travel extensively and we could not both be in 1 location at the same time. Max worked with us and made the whole loan approval and buying experience seem smooth. His team was constantly on the case and helped every step of the way. Great experience!

Buying a house in Austin is scary enough, the last thing you need is to be worried about the getting the funds to actually buy it.

07/12/2016 by Hector M.
Location: Austin

As a first time buyer I was really weary about who to borrow the funds from and hands down I have to say that Max Leaman turned what could have been a frightening experience into a walk in the park. He’s a straight shooter that was hyper responsive to all our questions and concerns and I never once felt pressured so my wife and I could focus on buying a house and not the funds. Max makes buying a house about as easy as it gets.

Happy California Resident

This was a seamless experience! Max had to work with two different parties (Washington DC & Austin) to get a loan for a house in California! We were a complicated case, and Max & Company did an amazing job to get this completed in time for our house to close.

Highly recommend!

Everyone I worked with in this group was great! Being first time home buyers, my husband and I needed plenty of guidance.

05/27/2016 by Lindsay W.
Location: Buda

I felt in the know and comfortable throughout the entire process. When it came down to the serious business, all communication was direct and prompt. Most of the transactions were completed in the same day. I also appreciated the follow up communication after closing. Overall, the Leman Team made our first home buying experience a fantastic one!

I had a terrific experience with the whole Leaman Team.

05/18/2016 by Jim K.
Location: Austin

Everything went very smoothly and the communication was excellent all along the way. The housing market is competitive and I really don’t know if we could have gotten our house in this rapid pace environment without The Leaman Team. I was impressed.

Great experience and very quick to respond when we had questions or concerns!

05/17/2016 by Breanna D.
Location: Austin

I would most certainly recommend them and use them again in the future.

My experience with the Max Leaman team was amazing.

05/13/2016 by Kevin K.
Location: Buda

Being newcomers to Austin from another state, we were working with a national mortgage company and the process was so cumbersome and difficult. Our agent suggested working with Max Leaman and I can honestly say that Max and his team really got the job done. Our loan was closed quickly and efficiently. Little issues that crept up were dealt with immediately and the process did not slow down. Being new to Texas, Max’s advice regarding real estate transactions in Texas was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It really was a pleasure working with Max and he is someone I came to really trust. My agent was correct in saying what great service the Max Leaman team provided. They really get the job done. You should give them a try. 5 Stars for the Max Leaman team!

Leaman Team was great and really made the process go by smoothly.

05/13/2016 by Brandon W.

I have no problem referring this company and will use them again myself.

team were great all the way through the mortgage process, as well as after closing.

05/10/2016 by D.D.
Location: Austin, Texas

The whole team was very responsive, which is very important to me. Another big plus is their positive attitude and the ability to make my difficult condo mortgage happen. Some condos like mine are extra difficult to close, but they worked through it all with me. I couldn’t be happier and would definitely work with them again in the future. Overall I felt the whole process was pleasant and everyone was very involved and responsive. I feel I was very well taken care of and well informed though out. I would recommend their team to my family and friends.

I can’t say enough about Jori and the whole team at Max Leaman.

05/10/2016 by Keith D.
Location: Austin

All I can say is work with them. They go miles above and beyond, they are prompt in their communication and they get it done. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them and I highly highly highly recommend working with them.

Max Leaman and is team were awesome. Made a out of state move go smoothly; always available to answer questions and provide updates on the mortgage process. Also savvy in getting you approved for the right mortgage to get you into the house of your dreams — Thanks Leaman Team

Competent, quick, and helpful. They got me a great rate and made what is typically not a fun process easy. Highly recommend!

Great guy to work with. He delivered to his promise and made the process of closing on a new condo very smooth.

His team is great to work with. I would recommend working with Max for getting the best deal on mortgage with no hassle.

My Realtor recommended Max and he delivered.

They were very responsive to questions and set us up with all the information we needed to close our new mortgage. Most important, we closed on time, despite a delay created by the title company arranging the sale of our previous home.

Max Leaman & team are too good to be true…. I had a wonderful experience of getting pre-approved to secure and purchase the home I wanted.

05/06/2016 by Sarel D.

Professional, experienced and reliable are only some of the words that come to mind when I think about my experience & interaction with the team. I will def. use and refer them to everyone I know – Thanks again from a very happy customer!

Very happy with Leaman Mortgage! Amanda Stewart was our broker, and she has been and continues to be a valuable source of information.

There were moments where I was concerned that I was bombarding her with questions, but she remained patient and has always given excellent responses that have left me feeling much more informed about the home-loan process. I recommend Leaman services whole-heartedly!

The Leaman team was fantastic and very easy to work with.

04/05/2016 by Billy C.

Home mortgage process changed in late 2015 and they were on top of it and helped up all the way through til we were in our new home. I recommend them wholeheartedly!

The Leaman team made this process so simple.

04/04/2016 by Jay S.
Location: Austin

They answered all calls and emails quickly and kept everything on track to close by our target date. Thanks to Jori Stern and Erika Fuentes for all their hard work.

Working with Max and his team made buying my first home a very pleasant experience.

03/22/2016 by B.A.
Location: Austin

He always made himself available and was very responsive whenever I had questions, and I had a lot. As you may know, there is a LOT of paperwork involved when purchasing a home and it’s not easy to keep it all organized. When they communicated with us they were always very clear on what we needed to get back with them and what the document was. It was a pleasure working with them and I’m glad I chose them!

Helped me refiance and obtain a home addition loan

03/21/2016 by J.H.
Location: Canyon Lake, Texas

The Leaman Team made it happen for me. I was looking on how to add on to our home. I called local credit unions the bigger well known banks, none of them would help me out. They were only interested in helping themselves, they would not answer my questions directly while trying to stear me into something I did not need. I found Leaman team and the rest is history. The Leaman team told me exactly what i could use and qualify for and were with me every step of the way all the way to the very end. Jori Stern was a pleasure to work with and I high recommend them to anyone.

Max and the Leaman team helped me with my new home purchase and I highly recommend them for any other Austin home buyers.

03/21/2016 by Michael F.

They were thoughtful, knowledgeable, and went the extra mile to make the process as easy as possible.

They were courteous, extremely fast to respond and made the process completely seamless. In a previous attempt to buy a house with a different lender, the lending process was murky, convoluted and the numbers changed every time we talked with the mortgage agent. This time working with the team at Max Leaman couldn’t have been a more polar opposite experience in a great way. Highly recommend.

AMANDA was so great to work with and made our home purchase experience such a dream!!!

03/18/2016 by Maria E.
Location: Pflugerville, Texas

She was always available for me speak with and was so patient in explaining everything. The process from start to finish was easy, fast, and seamless which was the complete opposite from a previous lender I had worked with. I am completely impressed at how organized and fast everything was and I have been recommending the Leaman team to all my friends and family in the area.

I’m a first-time homebuyer and heard horror stories about dealing with buying a home and securing a mortgage.

03/17/2016 by Joe C.
Location: Austin, Texas

I contacted Amanda at Leaman Team and she was amazing. Super responsive and helpful. The Leaman Team follows through on everything they say and answers questions very quickly. Amanda helped me get set up with the initial loan information. I worked with Erika during the application and underwriting process. She was wonderful. There were no surprises during the process, and I just closed on my first home. I will be recommending Leaman Team to everyone I know who is looking for a house.

I went through a refinance with this team. It was so quick and painless.

They were very helpful, and their process made everything SO simple. I live in Fort Worth and we were able to communicate with ease and get this refi knocked out!

Leaman Team was very fast and very helpful, thank you!

Quick and painless. This was the third home buying process (the other 2 with different lenders) I have been through and was the easiest by far.

Communication from them was fantastic; all questions, phone calls, and email were answered the same day, usually within an hour or so. Jori even reached out to me after getting an out of office reply on President’s Day. We had a quick turnaround from contract to close (42 days) and everything was ready and approved two and a half weeks ahead of time.

My husband and I were interested in buying an investment property in Austin

And our local real estate agent referred Max Leaman and his team to us for handling the financing. We were really fortunate to have them on our side throughout the entire process, from pre-approval letter to closing. Max is highly professional and always answered our questions quickly and clearly and made everything stress free for us. He even made sure to keep checking loan interest rates until the very last minute and we ended up getting a slightly lower rate than he originally quoted. And, even though we are in another state and signed the closing documents through a notary, Max and his team made sure that the closing went smoothly (and everybody got what they wished for :)). Yes! 5 full stars :) and we’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a property in Austin!

I have worked with the Leaman Team on 3 separate mortgages and each time it has been an excellent and very smooth experience.

Often times getting a mortgage is a stressful experience and it doesn’t help when it’s coupled with impersonal staff that doesn’t seem to care that much. With the Leaman team, it is the exact opposite experience. They take all the stress and worry out and offer a real personal experience. Everyone I have ever dealt with was great and very helpful every step of the way. I look forward to working with them in the future.

Excellent experience working with Max and his team.

I was very impressed with how easy they made the whole process for us. By far the best experience I have ever had with getting a mortgage. I would definitely use them again!

Max and his team are the absolute best.

He is the most responsive, informative and trustworthy mortgage lender in Austin!

Max and his team were great. I felt like all I did was ask stupid questions but they made me feel smart and empowered me throughout the whole process.

They were always quick to respond and extremely helpful. Often they responded on the weekend. Great service and I would use them again.

Worked with Jori Stern to get a home loan when we were ready to buy a house here in Austin.

She was extremely easy to work with and everything went through on time and without a hitch. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in the future.

I’d recommend the team to anyone looking to purchase a home.

The Leaman Team was great to work with. Jori was extremely patient and helpful as I started the process of purchasing my first house. She worked with me to provide estimates of monthly payments, and helped explain the different types of mortgages available to me.

We recently refinanced our house and had a great experience with the Leaman team.

Jori Stern and her team were responsive and answered all of our questions. They made the process stress-free. We would recommend the Leaman team to anyone!

I originally started with a big bank that my mom recommended.

She had closed with the loan officer there and thought I would get a good rate and good service. I can say the rate was competitive, but service was terrible. Really terrible. After being frustrated with that, I explored other options and found Max Leaman. I had heard good things about Lending from my friends that are in Title, so I called them. Jori called me back immediately, got me the info I needed and got everything going quickly. It was smooth sailing from there. They were clear about what they needed and the process really couldn’t have been easier. I have already recommended and would not hesitate to use them again in the future. I got a fantastic rate, closed early, everyone was super nice and on top of it all, I had to really do very little other than respond to their requests and show up at closing. Perfect!

My wife and I had an unusual situation when it came to trying to get approved for a home loan.

The first company we went with beat around the bush led us on and was just horrible to work with. We were building new construction and it was about a month and a half out from our closing date when we had had enough of the old company. At that time we reached out to the Leaman team and they took care of everything. They were able to get us approved in a very timely fashion and we didn’t even have to push our closing back at all. They are extremely knowledgeable and very friendly I would recommend them to anybody I know.

Great experience. They make every part of the home buying process go smoothly.

Everyone I encountered in their office is very friendly and helpful!

Amazing! The Leaman Team group provided impeccable service.

Expertise and customer care made the loan process smooth and worry free. I would 100% recommend team for any and all real estate loan transactions!

Being new to Austin, I wasnt sure who to call. I found The Leaman Team and was not disappointed.

Jori Stern was very responsive and knowledgeable. The online paperwork was perfect for me since I have purchased a few homes in my life and I prefer the self service model. The entire process was easy and worry free. I would use them again without question.

Max and his crew are excellent. We did use Max as loan mortgage when we bought our house and then we used his company again for our house refinancing.

The service was great and quick, they understood what we needed and found the best way for our loan payment. We didn’t have a chance to meet Max this time but Jori is great, she was friendly and quick to find our loan. We highly recommend to everyone who wants to own their house and we will use his company again for our next real estate purchase.

I decided this last July/August that I wanted to move to Austin from the Bay Area (San Jose).

I made one trip out here to meet with an agent, walk through a handful of houses and see the area in more detail. The process went smoothly, I found a home and started the mortgage process quickly. I cannot thank them enough!

The Max Leaman team was great to work with. The entire process was smooth and quick.

This was my second time working with them and both times were great. I highly recommend them.

I do not live in the Austin area, but that was not a problem. They were very responsive the entire time through email and phone.

Last year we were working on buying a condo that was under construction.

02/05/2016 by Morgan M.

Because construction is known to have delays (especially in Austin!), we were having to update Max’s team a lot with changes to our closing date. Through every step of the process he and his team were helpful and understanding of our ever changing needs. Having a great Mortgage team like Max Leaman’s really alleviated a lot of stress for us. I couldn’t recommend them more!

The entire process was like a breeze for someone like me who had no idea about loans. I highly recommend.

Refinanced my primary home mortgage with a cash-out option so I could pay off another property’s loan and improvements.

I have used this company before to refinance, and the process is always super-smooth. Their people are knowledgeable and helpful, they respond quickly to emails and phone calls, and I just couldn’t ask for a better experience. I invest in rental properties, so I’ve been to a lot of closings. Max Leaman is definitely the easiest to deal with, and they have great rates, too. I was able to email them a couple of days before closing and get the interest rate dropped based on a market decrease. Everything was handled via email — my preference — and only a few documents had to be hand-signed; most of it could be done electronically. The closing was scheduled quickly at a place very near my home, and they followed up quickly. I just got everything funded, and I got exactly what I needed out of the process. I very highly recommend this company to anyone who is thinking about refinancing their mortgage.

Max and his team are awesome. He helped us close a difficult deal on an investment property last year where other lenders could not deliver…Max did.

We had issues with the property, Max helped us overcome. Had issues with the appraisal, Max helped us overcome. Had issues with the seller not willing to extend escrow….yup Max helped us overcome.

Can’t say anything better about him and his team’s work ethic…Give him a call, you won’t be sorry!

I have used them twice to re-finance my house, both times the process was easy and fast.

I have several times asked for info on rates and fees when considering buying another place and they always send me the info within an hour!!

What a great experience. I worked with Amanda Stewart and she walked me through the whole process.

She gave me a list of all of the things I would need, explained the steps and made sure I always understood what was going on. The process was a great experience from beginning to end. Buying a home can be so intimidating, but it was a breeze working with the Leaman Team.

This was the first home purchase for my wife and I, and I could not have been more pleased

With the process and customer care from Jori Stern and the team at Max Leaman. We were given excellent guidance and education from them, and they treated us like we were a top priority always. The process to secure our first home loan was efficient, successful, and really a pleasure because of the professionalism, expertise and genuine nature of Jori Stern. I would recommend to family, friends, and anybody interested in a new home loan or refinance.

Could not recommend the Leaman team more. As a first time home buyer, the entire process can seem daunting and overwhelming.

12/02/2015 by Adam S.

The Leaman team was more than accommodating for my constant barrage of questions and stayed constantly in touch with me. My work schedule is incredibly hectic, so I had to do the bulk of my communication via e-mail and they were great! Jori was fantastic! Highly recommended.

I called today to get a 3rd party to review my mortgage documents on a house that I am currently under contract with.

11/17/2015 by Andrew K.

I was expecting to pay a few hundred in fees along with a lengthy delay in feedback. Not the case at all!
I spoke with a professional and very friendly person named Amanda. She took my information and called me back within the hour. She kindly explained the break down of my mortgage docs and explained a few terms for me.
Amanda, thank you again very much! You truly make the mortgage process that much easier and your good cheer will most welcome!

I worked with the Leaman Team and the experience was great. I travel a lot overseas and so many things had to be done remotely.

This was not problem and the Leaman team and without them I could not have done it. As well, this was my first home to purchase and so I had a lot of questions and they were happy to answer and explain the process. I will definitely use them again and I would highly recommend them to anyone in the Austin area.

I was recommended the Leaman Team from a friends wife who was my realtor.

The were very professional on every aspect of purchasing my new Condo. They were fast, they were responsive to your questions, and they really cared about me as a person. I’m not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to , but the Leaman team explained ever question I had in a language that made sense to me. I would definitely recommend the Leaman Team to anyone buying real estate in Austin.

I just finished my second home purchase with Amanda…there is no else that I would work with on the purchase of my home.

When you choose the Leaman team, you are really working with an entire team – not just a broker.
