  • "Bobby and his team provided a wealth of information for someone going through the refi process the first time. They took the time to explain all the options, and make and necessary changes and corrections to tailor the loan to my needs." - Derek W.
  • "If you are looking for the best lender, look no further, Bobby is the man when it comes to all things lending! He is hands down the best person to work with. He always answers your call on the first or second ring, he will constantly communicate with you through the whole process and I've never seen anyone work as quickly as Bobby does. He processed a $2 Million dollar loan for me in just 14 days...almost like having an all cash deal. Bobby is as good as it gets!" - Jim T.
  • "Bobby and his team worked hard to get me the best interest rate to refinance my mortgage. The whole refinancing process was very smooth. Job well done. Thank you." - Abderrahim E.

  • "As first time home buyers, Bobby made us feel comfortable and entire process of pre-approval to final loan approval went really smooth. Bobby and his team are very efficient, quick to get loan approval in no-time. Also the mortgage rate he was able to approve is less than what any other lender offered me. Would highly recommend him." - Kishore M.
  • "We recently bought our house. We were pre approved through another BIG bank and at the last minute, they decided we did not qualify. While I was sure I could get qualified elsewhere, I was not sure of the timelines and how long will the seller wait for the fear of losing another month without penalizing me. So in comes Bobby Shamlou at Meriwest, I call him at the advice of some friends, he looks over my paperwork, spends a day or so to review everything and also discuss with his management and confirms the approval. I am still anxious and wonder if they will make me do the same 10-20 day underwriter dance that the BIG bank did, but no, he gets it done in 2 days. I remember asking my friend and and my RE agent as to whether I need to pursue a 3rd lender and they say no, if Bobby says you are qualified, it will happen. I get the closing documents 4-5 days after my first discussion, and the closing is done in maybe 10 days end to end. A fantastic experience and thanks to Bobby, his team and Meriwest credit union for close internal communication to review and sort out contentious issues (eligibility) first!" - Harry S.

  • "Bobby is really just a great guy to work with. I never met him in person, yet I can say he’s one of the warmest people I had the pleasure of working with for my first home purchase. His greeting – “Bobby Speaking…” – is just the best; it didn’t matter what time of day I called, or what state of mind he was in, my phone calls always got the same friendly welcome in an upbeat tone – “Bobby speaking…”. Also, if you’re looking for someone to close in record time, he’s definitely your guy. He basically completed my entire process in two weeks. He’s as good as it gets." - Daniel H.

  • "He is amazing and helped me in getting approval on my first home loan and I didn't have a good credit history. Also, mortgage rate he was able to approve me of that is less than any other lender offered me. He makes sure that I should get key to my house and fulfilled all his promises and assurances. Also, whenever I had any query, he promptly replies back. He was able to do COE in just 21 days and always provide a feedback on the loan process. He is my first choice for a loan whenever I will plan for refinancing or buying another house. Thank you Bobby, you are amazing and really appreciate for all your hardwork and efforts." - Ankit G.
  • "When I started looking out for buying a home, I was not sure about the loan and how this whole thing works. I started exploring several mortgage specialists and all I got was disappointment. Few were not sure as I had no 20% down, few said I have to do 30% as I am on H1 visa and so on. At a time where I almost lost hope, my relator referred me to Bobby. The day I called Bobby, I realized he was the one who will get this done. NO was not an answer with Bobby. He is also a specialist for H1 holders and he closed my transaction in 15 days which was as good as cash offer. Any buyer would absolutely like it and this is indeed a great sauce to win the race in this crazy market. I highly recommend Bobby anytime. Thank you, Bobby, for getting this done!" - Lohith C.
