The Meridian Team that helped me made everything go very smooth. Tony, George, and Drew all worked hard to get my refinance completed before 7/18. My wife was going to be out of town from 7/18 through 7/30 and they were able to get our close done prior to her leaving. This was a great help, thanks guys.

The Meridian team made our home refinancing go so smoothly and they were never too busy to answer questions and explain the time it might take for our
paperwork to go through. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting
to refinance their home. They know what they are doing and were a pleasure to work with.
Jeff M. 7/24/2014 5:48PM
The experience I had with meridian was a good one, the only negative part about it was how long it took. I was expecting a month and it dragged on for two. After the appraisal I was told to repair some things the appraiser did not even care to about nor want to check.
Everyone I came in contact with was friendly and nice.
Keni 7/21/2014 11:48AM
The entire team at Meridian was extremely professional and so very helpful. This was by far one of the smoothest transactions I have done!
Kim 7/17/2014 10:06AM
WELL, it started off pretty good, we immediately returned paperwork required, paid for our appraisal, it came in good, BUT it was only suppose to take 30 days to close, the two initial contacts were very kind and friendly, but when we had to be in contact with George like many other customers, he did make me feel like I was inconveniencing him and was very short and stern, made me feel dumb if I asked him a direct question, bad customer service. We finally closed 60 days from the initial contact. I almost dropped them when another company I inquired with a year ago called me and guaranteed closing within 14 days, was not a broker and about $4,000.00 less fees with that much more cash in our pockets. I personally would not refer them to somebody.
Brandon B. 7/15/2014 8:26PM
Worst mortgage experience ever. It took 3 full months to complete. The first person insisted we start with a VA loan, even though I told him I did not meet the years of service requirement. A month later they finally hear back from the VA that I don't qualify. George from Meridian calls to advise and is noticably irritated that I wasted their time.
Now they started over with an FHA loan. Originally I was told the appraisal was covered by Meridian but now the new rep is advising me that I have to pay the appraisal. Streetlinks appraisals lived up to every review I read online about them, but I have no choice but to use them. $475.
Every conversation with George felt like I was bothering them with my existence and that no matter how long it had been since I heard from, I was only irritating them by calling to check on the status.
Once the mortgage was fin ally ready to close, all of the payoff amounts were based on the balances when they pulled my credit report, 3 months earlier. So now I have way over paid on all of the accounts and have to wait for refunds from everyone.
No interest in helping, rude employees, and a general lack of any customer service leave me wanting to warn others to go elsewhere. Anywhere else has to be better.
Mr. & Mrs. James C. 7/15/2014 3:48PM
We have been quite pleased with the help that Meridian has extended in helping us to attain a refinancing of our mortgage. their service has been outstanding and their people have gone out of their way with help.
Adam 7/15/2014 3:21PM
From the point I called to inquire about refinancing my home to the day of closing, the customer service provided by Meridian was excellent. I had LOTS of questions and made several calls and each time I received a quick response. I could not of asked for a better experience and would recommend Meridian Home Mortgage to anyone looking for Mortgage services. Job well done!
Cleaver 6/20/2014 10:08AM
what a wonderful job you did for us! there is a reason things happen when they do! thank you for all your time and effort with our problems we can breath a little bit easier now. thanks again sincerely the cleavers
William A. 6/7/2014 8:37AM
I first heard about Meridian through the mail, Did a little research on them and decided to give them a call. Happy that I did, everyone was very responsive to whatever concerns that I had. Thanks to Tony Tucci & Drew McHale closed in about four weeks. I would surely recommend Meridian to anyone who would be interested in refinancing. Job well done.
Daniel j. C. 6/7/2014 8:20AM
All the members of the Meridian team did an excellent job. Dan
Michael Y. 6/7/2014 4:07AM
Your team got me what i wanted when i really didnt think it was possible. There was some unexpected last minute charges, but thats not the first time that happened at a closing. All in all it was a good experience and would recomend your company to anyone. Thank you.
Nancy H. 6/3/2014 9:58 AM
I was very pleased with the mortgage experience. It was fast, everyone was helpful and courteous. Many thanks. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.
John 6/3/2014 7:33AM
Did an excellent job of getting the refinance completed in three weeks. I would defintely use them again and recommend them to anyone.
Jack & Cec T. 6/2/2014 3:13PM
I first heard about Meridian Home Mortgage through the internet. I usually delete immediately, but randomly thought I'll just try this one once. I'm certainly glad that I did. We now pay half the interest we were paying and had a very pleasant experience throughout the whole process. Dave Committee started with the initial explanation of how everything works and was terrific about explaining and returning e-mails. After starting to work with George as the process moved along, I was truly impressed with the level of courtesy and kindness he presents. He returned e mails and phone calls immediately with great explanation as to where we were in our refi. Thank you all at Meridian for a painless trouble free refinance.
Richard S. 5/20/2014 10:11AM
Meridian helped us with a VA loan refinance application and cash out fixed mortgage. The process was true to form, good follow-up and efficient.
Thank you all.
Courtney G. 5/11/2014 5:43PM
My experience with Meridian had its highs and lows. I know every person's experience is different. Its my goal to be honest so that you can improve any part of the process that may need improvement for future customers. I was initially extremely impressed with my first contact with a representative. I spoke with Dave Committee and he was very knowledgeable and also very honest which I appreciated. He was up front with what Meridian would be able to do, given the lower value of our home. We were told it was a possibility that we would qualify for a 2.5% interest rate for our refinance. I told a couple of my friends how impressed I was with Meridian at that point. However, that was definitely the best interaction I was to have. There were some e-mails and phone calls after that to collect necessary information to process the loan. I was anticipating that somebody woul d contact me at some point and let me know the exact interest rate that we ended up qualifying for and what the terms of the loan we qualified for would be. That did not happen. Things kind of fell silent in the middle of the process. The first time we heard what we qualified for, was in the phone call we received saying we would be closing. It would be more helpful if the customer was notified before closing with information on what the actual details of the loan would be. I do want to say that every time I spoke with somebody from Meridian, they were attentive and professional and polite.
Wendy W. 5/6/2014 12:00AM
I Was very pleased with Meridian Home Mortgage. They were very helpful through the process and keep us informed when the underwriters needed more information to complete the process. Everytime I left a message they responded back very quickly and in a timely manner. I would recommend Meridian to anyone that wanted to refinance their home. Thank you for giving us the financial freedom we needed.
John & Diane d. 5/5/2014 10:13PM
I appreciate all the work that the Meridian team did to get my loan approved then closed. I was very impressed with the high level of professionalism and communication. You kept us informed all through the process. I also was very impressed with the integrity of the team. You did exactly what you said you would do and when you said that you would do it. The positive attitudes shared by everyone was contagious. Thank you for saving us a ton of money! I will definitely recommend your services to others.
Don B. 5/5/2014 4:18PM
I want to thank everyone I worked with at Meridian Home Mortgage for helping me get my new VA loan. Everyone I worked with were friendly, knowledgeable and polite. The whole process was fast and painless. Thanks again. I would recommend you to all my friends
Ralph T. 5/5/2014 3:13PM
I never thought a mortgage brokerage company existed that didn't have all of the persons involved living on different planets, speaking different languages and not talking to each other. What a welcome surprise and a pleasant experience. No repeat requests for the same information, no evasive answers, no long periods of no communication and, most importantly, each person did exactly what they said they would do and did it when they said they would do it. Their process should be the model for other such companies. Prompt answers to any questions were the norm. I would recommend them to anyone.
Benilith G. 5/5/2014 1:44PM
Even though we were told that everything was in order and that approval was iminent, settlement was put off several weeks (supposedly becasue the underwriter needed more info and more info and more info). Because of this settlement was delayed and has cost us extra in unforseen fees from the credit card companies. Everyone was pleasant and knowledgeable but we did not appreciate the delays.
Charles W. 5/5/2014 11:04AM
We cannot begin to thank Meridian Home Mortgage enough for the manner in which they handled our refinancing request. The entire staff was helpful, courteous and, most of all, knowledgeable. We are so very grateful to them and would deal with them in the future with no hesitancy. Thanks again, Meridian!
Howard A. 5/5/2014 10:51AM
I would like to thank all of the people involved in my home refinancing . My VA loan offered a number of challenges and a whole lot of patience. The individuals
that I worked with were professional and always there when I needed them.
I would recommend Meridian to any one interested in refinancing or a new mortgage.
Jenny 5/1/2014 3:49PM
This has been the worst refinance experience I have ever had. The staff do not communicate with each other, which is ridiculous for a company with an assembly-line style process. Every step of the way there was a new person calling me who knew nothing about our situation and consistently had the home address and other information incorrect. It is just ridiculous that they send advertisements encouraging military families to refinance their VA loan with them when they clearly have little experience or knowledge in this area. Just now, after 4 MONTHS of this, we finally got a call that we will be able to sign our closing papers. George (no last name provided) was rude and treated me with disrespect for having questions and for having to inform him that my husband and I live in different states due to his active duty assignment and would need to sign the documents separatel y, which is something I have told EVERY person along the way. I will never recommend this company to anyone and will be posting this on every military blog, social media site, and my personal contacts to NOT do business with this company.
Dorothy W. 4/18/2014 12:26AM
The Meridian Home Mortgage Team Took care of my refinance needs for my home and was amazingly efficient and timely on every aspect of the process. They kept me informed and at ease every step of the way. Never made an attempt to present one thing and then shift it to something different in the end. From start to finish this is the best company hands down to ever handle business in the excellent manner in which they did for me. My total and sole confidence and recommendation for any Mortgage needs anyone may have is Meridian Home Mortgage Services. Don't make the mistake and do business without them. Thank you Meridian Team you are the Very Best !
Pamela L. 4/9/2014 1:12PM
Working with Meridan was great. Everything they said they would do was done and without much hassle. they were on time for closing which was at my house . Ansered all my questions and very prompt on return phone calls. couldn't has for a better refi.
Mike Kris R. 4/8/2014 12:20PM
Working with the folks at Meridian was very easy. They were excellent on following through on the things they said they would do. They were also on time or early on the timeline they gave us from the beginning. All questions were answered and calls promptly returned.
Michael B. 4/8/2014 10:27AM
The folks at Meridian made the refinance process very easy. Even when my appraisal came in low they located another lender that would work with it. Tony Tucci and the others at Meridian kept me informed and answered my questions in a timely manner. I would recommend them to anyone looking to refinance.
Jim and Betty S. 4/3/2014 2:58AM
The process went very well.The people we great and ansered all our Questions The closing also went well Had no complaints Thanks, Jim and Betty
Arita K. 3/17/2014 7:07PM

Thanks for a great experience,

We were very satisfied the way you handled our re-financing of our mortgage.
Excellent service. The final outcome turned out to be exactly the way We expected. Thank You very much. Special thanks to George and Diana.
Raymond S. 3/16/2014 2:06AM
The Meridian staff kept me informed every step of the way. Every time I had a question they had the answer. They were very professional, friendly and always available, even after business hours I received answers by e-mail.
The interest rate on the refinance actually came in lower than originally quoted and the appraisal on the house was more that I expected.
Closing was timely and it was done in my home which I really appreciated. A J Price was my initial contact and everyone in the pipeline after A J was wonderful.
I can't say enough GOOD things about the Meridian staff. They really rock.
Thank you all.
Raymond & Sheila S
Stephanie B. 3/15/2014 11:15PM
I would rate my experience with Meridian very high. Everyone I worked with was very professional. They reviewed my situation with me, asked me for documents, and got the ball moving very quickly. They kept me informed throughout the entire process. Because of my unique situation, I had a few hurdles to overcome and ended up changing the type of loan I was receiving, but Meridian guided me through it step by step. The entire process was very positive. I would highly recommend Meridian and would like to thank Tony E., Johnny M., and Diana P. for their professionalism.
Fred H. 3/15/2014 7:55PM
Excellent service. Kept us well informed throughout the process. I truly enjoyed not having to request updates. Diana Paquet is by far he best I have worked with. AJ also was thorough.

Karen D. 1/28/2014 11:17AM
I would like to thank Ron Miles, Drew McHale and your wonderful receptionist Deborah for the outstanding services that was provided to me. I will never forget the day that I got the call from Ron he went above and beyond for me as well as Drew. We appreciate everyone's patience.
I also love the fact that the closing was at my kitchen table......

Linda M. 1/21/2014 11:48AM
My husband and I refinanced our home and it was a very wonderful experience.
Starting with Johnny Miles who contacted us after completing the online application with AJ Price making sure we had all the documentation needed. These two gentlemen responded immediately to any of our questions and helped us through the application process.
Diana Paquet always provided us with email communication on the status of our refinance and together with her manager, George Belt, helped us to obtain the loan. We had a few obstacles to get over but with their professionalism and tenacity, we are on the road to improving our home and our finances.
Thank you to all of you.
Linda and Kevin Medford
Karen R. 1/17/2014 10:06AM
I was very pleased and very impressed from start to finish with my refi. Every person who participated with me during the process was very professional and courtesy. I appreciated everyone's patience in answering ALL of my questions. I also appreciated going to my closing at my kitchen table! Thanks again.
Larry & Norma O. 1/15/2014 2:09PM
We were pleasantly surprised with the ease of applying and the quick approval of our loan. Everyone involved was extremely nice and answered all our questions quickly from the time of the application to the closing of the loan which took less than 1 month.
We will definitely recommend Meridian Home Mortgage to anyone who needs a home loan.
Thank you A.J., Diana and George.
Larry and Norma O.
William B. 1/14/2014 2:11PM
Well done,everything handled in timely manner. Greatly appreciate every thing worked out great.Thanks for your effort on my loan.
Elizabeth M. 1/13/2014 1:21PM
I have never been so impressed with a loan company before "ever". You have amazing people that are knowledgeable, time efficient and seem to care. Drew McHale, I give you the ultimate praise you never hesitated to get back to me in a timely manner with an answer. Meridian seems structured to really provide their customers the ultimate service possible. I was in real estate working with top producing real estate agents before going out on my own as a realtor and NEVER had I experience such a wonderful and easy transaction. I would HIGHLY recommend Meridian for anyone's Home Mortgage needs, definitely an amazing company.
Patrina S.H. 1/10/2014 4:25PM
I really,really did enjoy working with everyone involved, so kind and professional.
Everything was at fingertip ready,made easier for me. I have MS. I definitely would recommend your company without hesitation.
Thanking You, Patrina S. Hicks
Benjamin G. 1/10/2014 3:36PM
Good service. Patient, understanding people.
Satendra 1/1/2014 3:15PM
Somewhere late August I enquired about solicitation for refinance. I spoke to Mark Manzo. Refinance loan was approved in early Sept then subject approval in late Oct. If it wasn't for Diane Paquet I would have walked. Diane Paquet is asset to your company and her ownership approach with my loan question was appreciated. Much cant be said about George, who scold me for asking repeated question. The check distribution was set for Dec 6. A returned check from chase credit card for insufficient fund and war with Nation Star and Advanta Bank may or have DING my credit. Finally back and forward money to this institution was wired on Dec 24th. I am stay tuned for further aggravation. In mean time Mortgage payment is due on Jan 1 by your sister banl leve well.
Jeff L. 12/18/2013 7:57PM
The entire experience was great. I woukd like to particularly mentio Diana Paquet and Drew McHale. Both took every phone call and answered every email. They answered every question. There were never obstacles just problems to be solved. They were patient, understandibg, and most of all helpful.
Josephine M. 12/14/2013 4:07AM
We are very pleased with Meridian Mortgage made the whole refi process stressless. It was a very positive experience. All the staff were very professional and made the the closing easy and promptly. Kudos to all. Keep up the good work. I recommend Meridian to my family and friends.
Robert F. 12/12/2013 9:53PM
Meridian Mortgage was so wonderful to work with for the refinance of our home. They quickly answered all of our questions. Responses were very positive. They took care of everything. I have already recommended Meridian to family members and would also recommend to friends. Kudos to all staff who maintained a very professional disposition.
John and Mike 12/12/2013 4:18PM
We are extremely pleased with the whole refi process with Meridian! The last time we did a refi was with Quicken... that was a complete disaster! Quicken made us jump through hoops and made promises that they did not keep. Meridian was so easy and they promptly answered any questions that we had.
Charles H. 11/19/2013 1:29PM
I am happy with the service I received. It took a little longer than expected and I had to redo some of the same documents. Everyone was professional and answered all of my questions.
Kenneth R. 11/19/2013 11:26AM
I have made many real estate transactions throughout my time and I have to say that this was the easiest to date! Everyone I encountered within the Meridian ranks were courteous, knowledgable, efficient and overall professional. Kudos to your Company and everyone I encountered during this transaction.

I was extremely pleased with my refinance experince at Meredian. I was made to feel very comfortable by everyone I spoke with. I combined a first and second mortgage, shorten to a 20 yr mortgage and saved money. Thanks for a great experience
Juanita M. 11/12/2013 1:33PM
I am very happy with the service that you provided for our mortgage refinance. You made the refinance simple, easy and very quick! I never had any problems and everyone I talked to was very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you for a great experience!
Richard 11/12/2013 8:05AM
We just completed refinancing our original 30 year home mortgage into a 20 mortgage and combined all credit card debt into that mortgage. Meridian was wonderful in getting us the best rate and keeping us posted as to the progress of the refinance.
Brandon M. 11/11/2013 8:10PM
IT started of great and the people at meridian were great.It was the companies that they used one for a water test.took twice as long for results and had a different exxuse every time you would speak to them..And then when we closed at our home.The woman came in and put on us how busy her day was and she wishes they would schedule in my area more efficiently.Instead of having her come back to my area 3 days this week why not do all one day.then had questions and she had no real answers..she said more than once that she didn't know she never saw this paperwork before.just didn't seem to want or time to explain things .other than that good exprrience...
Sheila S. 10/20/2013 3:47PM
I just finished going through the process of refinancing my first & second mortgage with Meridian. Meridian was a referral from another friend who just kept bragging about how great everyone was & how well informed she was through the entire process. Let me tell you, she was so right! I never had to worry, Dave kept me up to date on every aspect of my refinance. I did end up having to go through the process twice because of a miscalculation, but everyone on George's team helped me understand exactly what happened & why we had to redo the refinance. I called and emailed a couple of times @ received prompt responses to my inquiries. I even received a thank you gift for having to go through it all again.
Very client oriented
Thank you - Sheila
Richard 10/19/2013 10:11AM
The mortgage process can be long in these times. Thankfully Meridian helped throughout the process making it easy along the way. All the details were handled by them. We supplied the justification paperwork, they did all the rest. They even made my VA process simple. Thanks!
Manuel J L. 10/17/2013 3:23PM
I was satisfied the way you handled my re-financing of my mortgage.
Excellent service. The final outcome turned out to be exactly the way i expected. Thank You very much. Special thanks to Tony and Diana.
Marc B. 9/10/2013 5:05PM
I was very pleased with the assistance provided by Meridian during our refinancing. They met the timeframe we had originally discussed, locked our interest rate as soon as they received/reviewed our documents, arranged for a timely appraisal of our home and kept me informed along the way.
However, we did run into a last minute problem with the lender (American Financial Resources). Their underwriting department informed us on the day we were scheduled to close that we did not meet their income/expense ratio. Needless to say, this was extremely upsetting as this notification was received three weeks after the lender had issued the "clear-to-close" statement.
Thankfully, Meridian suggested a solution which was acceptable to us and the lender and provided sound advice in dissuading me from seeking another lender in view of all the work that had gone on before. Our loan did in fact close a couple of days following the original closing date and all terms were in accordance with the documentation previoulsy provided by Meridian.
I would therefore recommend Meridian without reservation to my friends and associates should they be in the market for refiancing.
Judy S. 8/16/2013 7:53PM
We are very pleased with Meridian and David Committee. He never gave up on us, as he knew we really needed this loan to get out from under the credit card debit and a REALLY terrible 2nd mortgage.
I called David just to let him know how much we appreciated all the work he went through to help us. I will always rememder how pleasant he was while trying to find the best solution that would meet our needs. He is one of a kind and we are grateful that he was the one helping us.
To all the staff that also helped....a big Thank You!!!!

Len M. 8/14/2013 12:07AM
Unfortunately this was not a positive experience. We have purchase several homes in our 25 years of marriage so far and went through the refinance process a few times as well. Never have I worried about the integrity of the bank or mortgage broker we have been working with until now. Our rates went up as soon as we called, not a big deal but somewhat unsettling. At closing the credit for the interest rate we had locked in decreased by almost $2,000 with no notice. The closing was halted, after a call and e-mail to figure out if it was an honest mistake or something worse we found out that "Our credit score dropped right before closing so the credit was reduced" with a call or notice or heads up of any kind. We have been so upset that we haven't followed up until now. I would like to formally request a copy of the credit report that resulted in the last minute increase in costs without notice. I do not want you to run another report obviously, I simply would like a copy of the report dated right before closing that resulted in this issue. We are super disappointed, if we had not reviewed all our closing documents very closely we would have paid close to $2,000 more than we expected. Fair enough as that is indeed our responsibility but thank goodness I have a backgroind in banking from way back when and specifically in mortgage banking. I worry about folks without that background. We would not recommend or use you guys again. Len Mayer - California
Mary R. 8/12/2013 11:54AM
We received information in the mail from Meridian Home Financial. So glad that we did as we had been talking about refinancing but not sure how to start the process. Everyone that handled our refinancing were very professional. They always returned calls. They made the process very easy. We are so glad that we did go through Meridian.
Renee L. 8/1/2013 4:32PM
My husband and I were looking to refinance our home, so we contacted a mortgage broker we'd worked with in the past. After responding to our inquiry that yes, she could help, and requesting additional initial information from us that we sent, we never heard from her again! We decided to call Meridian since they had sent a letter, and we're so glad we did. All of the folks we dealt with were very responsive to our questions, and they made a process that can be complicated feel very simple and streamlined. We recommend Meridian highly - they provide exceptional service!
Kristina H. 8/1/2013 11:13AM
We needed to refinance in order to get some equity to pay off bills. With less-than-perfect credit, I felt we were treated very respectfully. Most of our bills have been payed off and the relief is amazing. Everyone with whom we worked with at Meridian was completely professional. We were NOT required to continuously send papers.... 2 sets and we were finished. I will definitely use them again!
Dani 7/17/2013 5:57PM
It was an accident of fortune. On a whim I responded to a letter I got in the mail from Meridian. After a short discussion with Mr. Manzo, I was sold. I expected alot of problems and delays because I don't have stellar credit and I had heard many horror stories from people who refinanced through the big banks. I couldn't have been more wrong. All went well. With the impressively competent assistance of Mark, AJ, Diane, Drew and George, the process went smooth with few bumps in the road. I am truly grateful for your help in getting me into the best financial shape I have been in in a long time. I will recommend you to anyone who has an interest and even those who don't. Signed--The Happy Skeptic!
Julie M. B. 7/17/2013 2:26PM
Overall the refinance process was easy and everyone was nice- except for a man by the name of AJ Price. I'm not sure if he just has a very dry personality or if he is a rude person, but he came across rude and uncaring. A better position for him, in my opinion, is to not be involved with customers. I considered canceling because he was difficult to deal with. Again this is just my own personal experience.
Thank you so much for everything!
Bonnie D. 7/9/2013 9:03AM
Overall our experience with Meridian was very good. Phone calls and emails were promptly answered. We dealt with several different people, seemed like each person had a special roll. The only difficulty I had was in regard to our Trust, two different agents were unclear as to what I had to do. Drew helped us solve the problem easily, without incurring attorney fees. A lot of information gathering for sure but we always moved forward and closed in a reasonable time frame. I would definitely recommend Meridian.
David M. 7/5/2013 6:42PM
I was very impressed with the whole experience. Calls were answered or returned quickly. People were knowledgeable. A couple of times when I became concerned about a topic or item your team addressed them and set my mind at ease, and things proceeded as they said they would. My only complaint was that you couldn't lock the rate I wanted when I decided to go forward with the process until after the appraisal. I was even willing to give a deposit to do so. My loan was 1/2 % higher because of it. I missed the lower rate by about a week or so. The overall experience was excellent.
Charles J. 7/4/2013 4:54PM
I'm very happy with my experience with Meridan. There were a few bumps in the road during the loan process, but everyone at Meridan was prompt and knowledgeable and kept the loan moving forward. Requests for additional information were handled easily with email, no phone tag or unanswered calls. All in all, a sleek and professional experience. Will recommend to friends.

The loan process was easy and quick. Would like to especially thank Drew and George for their great job and answering any questions we had.

Working with Melinda, Diana and others made this process a positive experience. Any emails I sent or calls I made were responded to very quickly and everyone was so patient with my questions. A refinance does take a lot of fact gathering and back and forth communication but they kept me on track and moving forward. I would recommend Meridian to anyone seeking a refinance or home loan.

Deep into the process, we encountered an error made by my former mortgage company with an unreleased trust that was erroneously attached to my property, and my team at Meridian (Diana) and the title company (Emily) researched the issue and resolved it not only to keep this refinance on track, but also to save me from future headaches down the road. The team kept me informed regularly and worked this issue virtually daily for more than a month to ensure we closed on time holding true to all the numbers originally agreed upon. I was impressed throughout the process and found Meridian to provide some of the best customer service I've ever experienced.

I had a good experience with the people from Meridan. They were helpful during the whole process.

Meridian Home Mortgage was wonderful to deal with. I found Meridian to be helpful, fast, professional, and always pleasant to talk with. Johnny from Meridian knew his stuff and was fun to talk to. I liked the way that Meridian called me at both of my contact numbers to reach me. Meridian was a pleasure to do business with and I would recommend Meridian to any of my friends. Anita Moore

Refinance experience was great. I received good quick responses to my questions and concerns. The people I dealt with (Tony, Diana, Drew and Ed) were all fantastic to work with.
Area of improvement would be the multiple confirmation documents I had to sign. I had to sign the same set of documents twice. This created a little confusion which might be avoided if only one set could be sent to sign.

I am completely satisfied with the professionalism, courtesy and patience the team at Meridian provided for me. I want to make sure I recognize Dave Commitee who was my first contact with Meridian, thanks for all you did, and Diana Paquet thank you for your patience when I was feeling stressed and anxious as we were getting close to closing. I will recommend Meridian to anyone I hear of looking to refinance or purchase a new home. Thanks again.

From the inital application for refinancing to the final closing Meridian was very professional and helpful. They were always prompt in returning our calls when we had a question. Having the closing take place in our home was very convenient. We highly recommend Meridian to anyone who is purchasing a home or who wish to refinance.

I had a wonderful experience with Meridian Home Mortgage for my refinance from start to finish. The application was reviewed quickly and any requests for additional information were made right away. Any of my email questions were answered very quickly and concisely. The entire process was handled smoothly and much more rapidly than any refinance I had done previously. The entire team of Meridian folks who assisted me - Dave Committe, Diana Paquet, AJ Price and others -- were very knowledgable and professional. I would definitely recommend Meridian Home Mortgage to others.

While most of my issues with the process were completely out of Meridian's control, I did find it frustrating that every phone call or email came from a new person. I prefer to work with one, maybe two people on any sort of transaction like this. What made it worse, was the last person who did reach out to me, made me feel as though I owed him something because he stepped in so I didn't have to pay anything at closing. Mind you the entire process went from consolidating my debts, to be reassured after my appraisal came back that all was well, to it not all being well, to getting up to $1000 cash back, then up to $500, then being told I was get 0 cash (when consolidating was originally to point of starting the process), then being told I needed to be grateful to a person I didn't deal with during the entire process. That being said, my rate is lower as are my monthly payments, which I am grateful for. I just thought the half a dozen different people I dealt with to the last person (I didn't get his name because I was too shocked by how he acted while on the phone) made an already stress transaction even worse.

Don't bother if your not a simple refi such as a business owner because they won't have a program for you. They don't even bother to find out all the particulars, just look at the application submitted on line and send a email declining. Thanks for nothing all I got was a hit on my credit report, not even a phone call
SHIRLEY C. 6/26/2013 9:20AM
I am so glad that I chose Meridian Home Mortgage for my refinance. Your company made everything easy. I have had the best experience, and I would chose Meridian Home Mortgage again and again. I have already told other friends about the great choice that I have made, and hopefully, they will soon call, to make this same choice. Thanks again for lowering my monthly house payment, paying off a few bills, and giving me cash back. Your company met all of my expectations and more. You are the best.

Three distinct differences come to our mind when comparing Meridian Home Mortgage Financing to two prior home refinancing experiences: Beginning with our first phone contact, the Meridian representative told us how Meridian could help us lower our mortgage rate and consolidate other debts. They were true to their word and there were no surprises along the way. Secondly, the turnaround was quick. If a rep said that documents would arrive on a specific day, they arrived on that day. All forms were well explained in advance. Lastly, the personnel were friendly, courteous, and responsive. These individuals made a valid effort to help us meet additional requirements requested by the underwriter. We felt confident in their help and guidance throughout the process and would not hesitate to recommend Meridian to our friends and other family members.
Candi C. 6/20/2013 4:04PM
Whew...what a process!
Thank you Mark M., George, and everyone I came in contact with.
Meridian met all expectations and then some. I was ready to give up and George helped in making the loan happen. I feel that a huge boulder has been lifted and now I can work on credit debt reduction and eventually be able to have surgery for a much needed hip replacement.

Not quite sure how I'm feeling.
I spoke to numerous people in meridian and was confused who was who but they got the job done. All were friendly and professional. I did get a great rate and that was my overall goal!
Once all was said and done i was speaking to the bank and found out I was stuck paying PMI. This would have been a deal breaker if I had known. At no time was this brought up during my phone conversations but then I signed the papers. My fault. I would not go through an out of state broker company again. i think maybe if i had literally sat down with the paper work this could have been avoided and i could have made a more informed decision. Unfortunately it is a lesson learned.

everything went great kept me informed along the whole process
Ed C. 6/19/2013 5:53PM
My overall experience was good. I was a little nervous to refi on line, but everything was great. Dave, Beth and George were very nice to work with and really took care of all of my concerns. I would recommend Meridian to my family and friends.
Andrew W. 6/19/2013 2:22PM
Overall, things went well - one of the more painless refinances/purchases that we have been a part of.
One suggestion I would make involves more attention to Rates and Rate Locking. I understand that rates can fluctuate, and recent history has shown that rates may move in one direction only to move in the other the following week. That being the case, I noticed rates had maintained a steady rise from the time we started to about a week and change after getting all the paperwork signed. I called in to verify whether or not we were already Locked (this was an FHA loan, and I was not sure if we needed to Lock). We weren't, and the terms we had originally been working with were now no longer available. I was advised that the underwriters were of the opinion that rates were going to come back down, but I was NOT of the same opinion. I asked about the downside to locking, and was advised that the worse case scenario was that if rates fell to a point where it made sense to do something else, we do something else and lose about a week or two in the process. So we locked...which was the right thing to do since rates rose even further by the time we closed, and I still had over a MONTH of rate lock of slack left! Had we locked in when all the paperwork was signed (less than a month before closing), we would have a .5% lower rate AND thousands more in our pocket!
I understand that no one can predict the future, and that all sorts of things could happen. But had I not called in, it would have been worse! This issue kept the experience from being flawless.

All said and done, my experience with Meridian Home Mortgage Co. was very easy and the people were extremely helpful. All of my questions were answered with a smile, no matter how silly they may have seamed.
Facing retirement in a couple of years, paying off all my bills and looking at only one bill (house payment) and my monthly expenses remaining low, takes a large load off my shoulders and gives me peace of mind looking towards the future.
Thank you all for your help and handling my refi in such a seamless and helpful fashion.
Matt W. 6/17/2013 10:53PM
My overall experience was great, We ended up lowering our interest rate again before closing which was wonderful, I had talked to other companies before about IRRRL programs but Meridian was the best and charged the least fees to get it done.
Graham T. 6/10/2013 11:47AM
I am a very satisfied customer. Meridian Mortgage has an outstanding staff, that pay attention to the details. I would like to specifically thank Tony and Dianna for their outstanding work. I hope to be a repeat customer when the time arrives. Thank you again.
Lisa M. 6/5/2013 1:03PM
George, Melinda and Diana were fabulous in helping me with my refinance. They made the process simple and easy. Thank you such much for such a wonderful experience.
Thomas 5/19/2013 10:16PM
This was the best process we have ever experienced. Melinda was so helpful right from the start and we were updated through out the entire loan. I would highly recommend Meridian to all I know. Thank you!
Danny L. 5/19/2013 4:54AM
My entire loan process was handled honestly and professionally. Each person (starting with Dave) was very courteous. I was also kept informed along each step of the process. If you provide all the requested and required information in an accurate and complete manner, your loan will move smoothly. The team at Meridian analyzed my debt ratio and maximized my loan. They were even able to further lower my interest rate by 0.25% just prior to closing.
Home mortgage refinancing is a detailed process so don't expect it to be quick. My experience with Meridian was great and I truly appreciate everything that they did for me. Thank you!
William C. 5/16/2013 3:34PM
Thank You for all the help with my refi. Tony and his team kept me informed
all the way thru it. There were no surprises.
