    Daniel, Nora and Sherice were the absolute best! I was blown away by the care, service and transparency they showed throw the whole process! And on top of it, we closed in under 30 days! Even my realtor said that it was the fastest Chase close he has ever seen. Thank you!!

    I would highly recommend Dan and his team. They were great to work with and made the home buying process easy. As a first time homebuyer, I appreciated the time spent explaining the process so I never felt lost. I truly was surprised at how seamless it went, and that's due to Dan and his team. Thank you!!

    The process was very smooth and the client was very satisfied in the end. Nora and Dan were great. Sometimes Nora's response time was slower than we would have wanted but I understand that she is working within her own process. Perhaps we should have been contacting Dan instead of Nora.

    We were glad to have Chase's Dan Chookaszian running point on this transaction from our local branch. He smoothed over any confusion that arose among the various cooks in the kitchen. Dan was super-responsive (and we peppered him with requests throughout).

    The Chase team had a bit of a lag in getting final closing numbers prepared, even though all of the submission tasks were completed well in advance. That lag caused about a day or so of anxiety about whether this transaction would close on time. We felt like we needed to inject a little energy to expedite the process, and unfortunately needed to spur Dan to spur his teammates. The Chase team responded, and we closed on schedule.

    It all worked out in the end. We were glad that we had Chase on our side for our new home purchase.

    Daniel was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The appraiser used faulty methodology that undervalued my home and almost caused me to cancel the transaction. I would not use the same appraiser again and would advise you as an entity not to do so.

    All the staff at every step of the way were so helpful and easily accessible - Dan Chookasian and his team were first rate!

    As a first-time home-buyer, Dan spent the time to walk me through the process, great at explaining things and very patient with my questions. It made the process seem less daunting. Landina & Sherice were equally great communicators, helpful and readily available.

    Dan Chookaszian did an outstanding job from start to finish. My answers reflect his effort. Sherice Leora was the outlier - she consistently dropped the ball (misplaced/misinterpreted supporting documentation), didn't stay up to speed with the progress of the closing, and exhibited a rather unpleasant and condescending demeanor. This was particularly disappointing, especially considering that her role was to facilitate the process, not hinder it.

    Dan Chookaszian and his team were simply incredible. They went above and beyond figuring out different avenues to make this loan happen. The result was an approval with very minimal effort on our end. Dan would not stop or give up when things seemed somewhat impossible. He kept working at this until he got the job done. We are forever grateful for him and his incomparable work ethic. We are now in our home and we just could not be happier. We will recommend him in every opportunity that presents itself. Thank you to everyone involved and praise God!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is it time to stop renting and buy a home?
When debating between renting vs. buying, you need to think about your lifestyle and finances. While renting can provide more flexibility, owning a home enables you to build equity in the property and may provide tax benefits.

Buying a home is a huge step, especially when you’re moving from renting to owning.
How can I get information on mortgage loan options?
At Chase, you can choose from several types of mortgage loans to finance your home purchase. A Home Lending Advisor can help you understand the differences between the various loan options so you find one that best suits your financial situation.
Once you understand what you want out of a home, determining your housing budget is essential. After determining a loose housing budget, you'll need to decide how much you'll be comfortable paying each month. Your real estate agent will help you find the right home based on all of these factors. Looking for more information? Read our guide on “How to Find the Perfect Home!”
What documents will I need to apply for a mortgage?
Traditional loans usually require documents that verify your employment, income and assets, and may include:
• Your Social Security number
• Pay stubs for the last two months
• W-2 forms for the past two years
• Bank statements for the past two or three months
• One to two years of federal tax returns
• A signed contract of sale (if you've already chosen your new home)
• Information on current debt, including car loans, student loans and credit cards
What is better: a fixed or an adjustable interest rate?
If you plan to be in your home for more than seven years, you may want to consider a fixed-rate mortgage, which offers predictable payments and long-term protection against rising mortgage interest rates. If you plan to be in your home for seven years or less, an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) could be attractive. Keep in mind that with an ARM, your monthly payments have the potential to go up each time your interest rate adjusts.
