Thanks for doing such a good job!
Madeleine Rose, Portland
Quick service and good call back!
John & Suzanne Erickson, Oceanside, San Diego California
Josh gave us lots of options and was fantastic about explaining the pros and cons about each option. Because of that, I have no doubt we made the best decision for our situation. Josh was patient and could explain things to us and I appreciate that. Thanks Josh!
Donna Stiles, Portland
We were most impressed with the prompt service and relative ease in obtaining a home loan through Plum Tree Mortgage. Our financial needs were met within the time fram prescribed, largely due to the perserverence and diligence displayed by the mortgage broker -- Josh Leake. We were completely satisfied with all aspects of the services provided and would have no reservations, whatsoever, in recommending Plum Tree Mortgage to other potential home buyers.
Susan and Jack Melin
Josh was very accommodating and east to work with.
We were only a few days from signing paperwork for a refinance with a nationally known firm when I received a call from Josh. What he had to say was music to my ears. Josh presented a great rate, very reasonable costs, and un expediated timeframe for completing the process. Josh was a pleasure to work with, the refinance was funded in a timely fashion, and I saved a lot of money. I'd highly recommend Josh and Plum Tree Mortgage.

I was very frustrated by the time I came to Plum Tree Mortgage. I couldn't understand why I was hitting a brick wall because I wanted to buy a "fixer-upper". Josh was able to examine far more avenues and possibilities than a bank! I am not a corporation or a developer. I just wanted to get this house, and contribute to that neighborhood, and make it a good home. It was straight-forward, and Josh informed me of every step along the way. I will definitely recommend him to my friends.
Thank you, thank you!! Prior to finding you Josh, every loan agent I dealt with tried to sell me a loan that worked best for them -- repeatedly ignoring my specific requests. Finally I came across your web-site and took a chance at calling you. I am glad I did! You were the only one to accept my terms and needs without any hassle! Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for being a breath of fresh air in this chaotic loan world!
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all of your help getting my home refinanced. You have provided the best customer service I have received in a long time. Returning my calls promptly. Getting the whole thing done in no time. You're friendly and always curious. Others in your office were also
very helpful and kind. With the passing of my husband this was a very difficult time and I was facing so many things all at once. You made this part smooth and quick. I can not tell you how much I was impressed and grateful. If I hear of anyone I will be sure to send them your way.
Claudia Bell, Portland Oregon
Josh -- you really know the meaning of customer service! You have been a pleasure to work with and we can't wait to recommend you to more of our friends and family!
MIchelle and Sean O'Brien, Portland Oregon
Josh went way above and beyond for me and really helped every step of the way!
Darlene Chersky, NW Portland Oregon
We found Josh at a time when we needed to close our loan fast and we were looking for a good rate as well. He came through with both and his service and professionalism left us with no doubt that we had chosen the right person. Thanks for your help Josh!
Josh Post, Pearl District, Portland Oregon
Josh Leake at Plum Tree's Pearl District office was instrumental in finding the mortgage that would work the best for my situation. He was helpful with all of my questions, answering them in a manner that allowed me to understand what I wanted to know, and doing so without making me feel inadequate. I would definately refer Josh to anyone I know. Thank you.
Craig Massey, NE Portland Oregon
Speed and efficiency!
Howard & Doris Bothell, Bothell, Washington
(Yes they are related!)
Easy to work with, provided many options. Very flexible.
David & Melissa Han, Lake Oswego
Plum Tree scoured through hundreds of products to find the perfect loan for my needs. They secured a great rate that was considerably lower than anything else out there.
JD, NW Portland, Oregon (a few blocks north of Pearl District)
Great service and updates!
Ann Manion, Portland, Oregon
Thank you for helping us when our other bank backed out of their loan commitment to us. It was a shock after having everything approved for almost six months and then two weeks before closing to find out they were withdrawing their financing. We are very appreciative that you were able to step up with an identical financing package and do it so quickly that we were able to keep the same closing date. We would certainly recommend you to any friends who were looking for financing.
Bob & Joyce McNiesh, Seattle, Washington
Josh's first quote exceeded our expectations as we had received prior quotes from other mortgage brokers in Portland Oregon. He got the appraisal completed in a very short period of time and though escrow took a while he kept his commitment to the interest rate and extended the lock [for free]. He guided us through emails and telephone calls even after escrow was closed and answered all queries promptly and to our satisfaction. We highly recommend Josh's services to anyone who would like to purchase or refinance their property.
Ziva & Jacob Abraham, Lake Oswego, Oregon
you so much for changing the rhythm, picking up the tempo and bringing
back the fun and joy of buying our first home. (Note: Glenn and Rebecca
had timing problems with another lender...)
Glenn and Rebecca
Josh was quick and helped me get into my new home with no hassle.
He was available at all hours and even came to the signing. He offers
"Nordstrom-like" customer service. Thanks.
Josh was always available and he took extra time to explain everything
in detail. I appreciate his earnest approach. Thanks Josh.
Jonathan and Lori Mulcare
Some friends referred us to Josh and he didn't disappoint. He was
helpful and accessible throughout the underwriting process, returning
our calls promptly and answering all of our questions. He was also FAST
(unlike the banks we inquired with) and the fees were reasonable. We
managed to knock 23% off our monthly mortgage payment...that's a lot
Ron and Nicole
Our other lender dropped the ball. We almost lost our home. Josh
came in and even made our closing date. Thanks for all of your help
Working with Josh Leake as my broker was painless, educational, simple,
cost saving, and rewarding. I would suggest to any home purchaser, first
time or not, utilize Mr. Leake's expertise for a smooth home purchase.
Josh was great. For a first-time home buyer, he was patient and very
Josh immediately put my mind at ease when he patiently walked me
through the whole complicated process making sure I understood what
all the terminology meant and what it all entailed. He kept me informed
as we proceeded, he was prompt in returning calls, always patient and
courteous. He was professional all the way with just the right amount
of personal warmth in his helpfulness. Josh Leake is an excellent Mortgage
Broker and we would refer clients to him without hesitation.
