    I really enjoyed working with Don. He was always accessible, happy to answer my first-time home buyers' questions, and kept everyone informed as key milestones were met during the process. I hope to have the pleasure of working with Don again!

  • Mike Krieger (Wednesday, June 06 18 10:08 am EDT)

    This is the second time I've worked with Don, this time on a refinance. Don helped me through any and all questions I had, and made sure to get me the best product available. He was always available and extremely helpful. Thanks again to Don and his team.

Dionne from there called Don & within 10minutes, We had a Conference Call & Started the paperwork. From that day on we were Guided thur all the procedures & Never had to Stress!

    Don and his team were awesome! Very professional. Quick response times made the transaction very smooth.
    Thank Again Don

  • Chrissy Ferreira (Tuesday, December 12 17 03:11 pm EST)

    Don is simply the best! I've had the pleasure of working with Don on multiple deals and he always does a seamless job. I know my clients are in great hands with Don and can rest assured that he will get the job done for them! He is patient and explains the process thoroughly, helping ease some of the stress of buying a home. Don is a fantastic communicator; he and his team will keep you updated along the way. He goes above and beyond to help you make your dreams a reality - what more could you want!

  • Christopher & Lauren DiMeo (Saturday, November 04 17 09:07 am EDT)

    Don’s availablilty, guidance and professionalism was clearly on display during our home purchasing process. He made it a positive experience worthy of a recommendation for anyone looking to buy a home.

  • Gary Conforth (Saturday, September 16 17 12:48 pm EDT)

    Don recently helped my girlfriend and I get a mortgage for our first home. As first time buyers, the process can be pretty intimidating. But with Don, it was a piece of cake. We were extremely impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. In the end, he was able to get us the right mortgage that worked for us with no problems whatsoever. I dealt quite a bit with Joan from his office, as well. She was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions. I can't recommend Don and his team enough. Thanks again guys!!!

  • Julio A., taken from Facebook (Wednesday, September 13 17 04:36 pm EDT)

    My wife and I were very satisfied with the professionalism and knowledge Don possesses and brings in explaining every step of our mortgage refinance. It was fast and no hassle whatsoever. Thanks Don again, and I will definitely recommend you. Excellent job!

  • Kim Carrera, taken from Facebook (Wednesday, September 13 17 04:34 pm EDT)

    I worked with Don to refi my home. I had contacted 3 other lenders first, and no one could make it happen. I then contacted Don who got it done! Within 6 weeks from beginning the process, I closed. The process went smooth and quick, with no glitches. I can't thank him enough and will never look elsewhere for any of my mortgage/refi needs.

  • Eddie Koeppen (Saturday, September 09 17 03:53 pm EDT)

    It was a pleasure working with Dionne, she guided me through the process of purchasing my new home for me and my daughters. Dionne,Don and Joan were very responsive to all my questions, no matter when I was calling and they make a great team. They were dependable and reliable and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend using them to others.

  • Jessica rossi (Friday, September 08 17 06:40 pm EDT)

    Dionne was amazing! Everything got done and she was on it. It was really hard for me to find the right fit for my morgage and she made it so easy. I called her all hours and she was there for me no matter what.

  • Ryan Westover, taken from Facebook (Wednesday, August 30 17 02:11 pm EDT)

    Donny's work ethic is priceless. He made this roller coaster process extremely simple on the mortgage end. Even when things got interesting with the lawyers, Donny kept in touch and kept me positive. I will refer him to everyone I know. Thanks for all your help. Even more the check I got back!!

  • Tricia Zuppa, taken from Facebook (Monday, July 31 17 05:01 pm EDT)

    This is my second mortgage with Don and once again he did not disappoint !!! Working with him just makes the whole process so easy and simple. He is amazing to deal with and extremely helpful throughout - no stress just a walk in the park !!! Thank you soooooo much for all your time and help - your knowledge and professionalism makes working with you such a pleasure !!!!!

  • Erin Tiffany & Gerard Frasso, via Facebook (Saturday, July 15 17 01:43 pm EDT)

    There are no words to describe how incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and hardworking Don is. When my husband and I started looking for our home, we were referred to Don and I couldn't be more thankful that we found him. The home that we purchased needed a complete renovation and addition of a second floor. Don not only helped us navigate the the standard mortgage process, but walked us through the construction loan (203k) getting us approved and funded to build our perfect home. His knowledge of the mortgage industry and working diligently for his clients is only part of the service he provides. Don helped us work with contractors and ensured that they had the appropriate credentials to complete our project. He was available all hours, and would often call, email, or text just to check in and follow up with our project.
    I have, and will continue to recommend Don to anyone looking to purchase a home.

  • Chrissy Scala, taken from LinkedIn (Monday, June 26 17 10:36 am EDT)

    My fiancé and I recently purchased our first home in Nutley, NJ. Don was recommended by a lifelong friend (our realtor) and I am extremely grateful for the introduction. From our first phone conversation to moving into our home and making our first mortgage payment, Don was insanely knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding. He is always steps ahead of the process - Everything was always completed before it had to be. We really trusted putting our future in his hands. Don and his team kept themselves involved every step of the way even if they didn’t have to (which happened a lot because I got upset along the process and somehow Don always knew how to calm me down). They went above and beyond to make this hectic situation as smooth as possible. We highly recommend Don and his team!

  • Joe Brzoska (Wednesday, May 17 17 02:59 pm EDT)

    Wanted to take some time to talk about how easy and painless it was for my fiance' and I to purchase our first home because of someone with so much experience as Donald has. He was there for us step by step throughout the whole process (even on weekends if I had questions), and always had the answers I needed. He got me a great mortgage with a great mortgage company, and I would refer Donald again and again. Thanks for all your help and support!

  • Robert Mastrangelo, taken from LinkedIn (Monday, May 15 17 05:06 pm EDT)

    What can i say about Don, above and beyond doesnt really cover it. My Fiance and I decided to start the process to purchase a home but neither of us had any clue how to begin. We read some reviews, asked around to some trusted friends and were pointed in Don's direction. From our first call we knew he was the right guy, very knowledgeable in every aspect of his craft and all other areas involved with the process, which were many. He took the time to be sure we understood every little detail and was never impatient when we needed him to go over something multiple times. He also has an arsenal of reputable contacts for everything needed from day 1 to closing. We had no idea the number of steps or different people that were needed but every time we learned about the new step it was followed with Don's recommendation and their contact. Everyone was professional, reasonable and had our best interest in mind. In short, Don helped us turn what we thought would be a long, stressful ordeal into a quick and relatively easy experience. When we chose our home we went from offer to closing in 45 days and aside from a couple of bumps on the seller's end Don and his team kept the arrow on the date we picked, covered our backs to assure no surprises and didnt rest until the deal was done to our satisfaction.
    Thankful and appreciative from Parsippany
    Robert & Nadia

  • Kara Kopach, taken from LinkedIn (Monday, May 15 17 05:05 pm EDT)

    Donny was a consummate professional throughout our mortgage transaction. He made sure every question was answered and paid attention to every detail. He was incredibly timely and responsive too. Donny changed the way we viewed the traditionally cumbersome mortgage process and for that we are extremely grateful!

  • Kathy Marino, taken from LinkedIn (Monday, May 15 17 05:04 pm EDT)

    Donny was amazing to work with. He was so easy to get in touch with and always quickly responded to any of our questions. He made the mortgage process so easy and simple. We did not have to worry about anything and he took care of all the headaches that come with the mortgage process. Thanks so much for your help. It could not have been any easier. Thank you!

  • Joanna Leja, taken from LinkedIn (Monday, May 15 17 05:02 pm EDT)

    Don is the best mortgage professional! For our first home, we had no idea what the process was or where to even start. I had a million questions and I needed professional information and advice and he explained everything with patience and confidence. When I first called Don, he said he would be more than happy to meet in person. He spent over an hour with us, going over the process and mapping out a plan for us. From that day, we knew we were in good hands. My husband and I were dealing with a very difficult seller and for that reason the transaction took a while to complete. Don was always very supportive, positive and told me exactly what we needed to do. He kept us informed about the rates all the time and collected all the information he needed in advance so there were no surprises at any step in the process. Closing was a piece of cake because he went over everything a few days before. Overall, I give Don a perfect 10 when it comes to customer service and guiding you through the whole home buying experience!!! Thank you again!

  • Steve Eichner, taken from Facebook (Monday, May 15 17 04:56 pm EDT)

    Got me locked in at a great rate and dealt with all my questions. We were able to make quick changes the closing day when the bank made a small mistake on the paperwork. No complaints helped make a stressful situation as manageable as possible. I would definitely use him again.

  • Dana Paltos, taken from Facebook (Monday, May 15 17 04:56 pm EDT)

    The has been 5 years in the making! We are Donald's longest standing clients. Throughout the years he has given us his full attention. He made sure it was the right time for us to buy. We closed on our house in November 2016 and Donny was with us every step of the way. He takes care of everything for you and is available whenever you need him! We are so thankful for his knowledge and professionalism! Thank you Donny!

  • Ed Brzoska, taken from Facebook (Monday, May 15 17 04:55 pm EDT)

    Don was very professional at all the stages of closing on our home. I say stages because I think it took 6 months to close!! The reason it took so long is that we applied for a home style mortgage, which are great because you can do construction to your home. There not great because you have to rely on 3 rd parties getting on the same page to close. Long story short Don was professional and kept us all cool when we were ready to pull the plug I highly recommend Don for any mortgage you want to apply for.

  • Abbey Fisher (Monday, May 15 17 04:54 pm EDT)

    Purchasing a home can be such a stressful situation. My husband and I were purchasing our first home together and were a little in the dark on most situations. Our realtor referred us to Don for the mortgage and from the moment we connected, he made the process so easy. Aside from being professional and knowledgeable about his job and what we needed to do, he was available via his cell phone whenever we needed him. He answered countless questions about the mortgage, the lawyers, the paperwork and was working behind the scenes for us so we could have our dream home. Having Don as a part of our home buying process made it run so much smoother. I cannot say enough good things about him. Highly recommend...You will NOT be disappointed.

  • Naomi Polatsek, taken from Facebook (Monday, May 15 17 04:52 pm EDT)

    Thank you Don for making our home buying experience pleasant! We had some complications with our mortgage application because we were residing overseas and Don made this process smooth and seamless.

  • Dee Koul, taken from Facebook (Monday, May 15 17 04:51 pm EDT)

    Don was an all star professional throughout our 11-month ordeal,
    purchasing a new construction. I cannot say enough about the value of
    choosing a professional who takes the reins and completes the job from
    start to finish - and does it well. Don kept us updated on interest
    rates as the date of closing got closer and made sure to proactively
    lock us in at a great rate! He was always available for questions and
    guidance. Date of closing was a piece of cake - no stress or
    night-before jitters because we always knew exactly what to expect
    before it happened with Don. AWESOME!

  • Robert M. (Wednesday, March 08 17 05:56 pm EST)

    Donny made the mortgage process so easy and simple. He was always available for any questions at any time and would quickly respond and explain anything to us. Could not have been easier to work with. He handled everything we need on time and was very professional. Thanks Donny!!

  • Paula Gutierrez (Sunday, December 25 16 12:04 pm EST)

    Don was wonderful! I was a first time home buyer and knew nothing about the process. After speaking with him the first time, I knew I was in good hands. He is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in mortgage lending. Don was thorough, responsive and always answered my questions (sometimes even more than once!). I would highly recommend Don for your mortgage lending needs. He and his team made my dream of owning a home a reality – just in time for the holidays!

  • Paula A. Gutierrez (Saturday, December 24 16 05:55 pm EST)

    Don's knowledge and sincerity as a broker made an arduous process less daunting and stressful. He is extremely responsiveness and always accesible. I knew absolutely nothing about the process but Don guided me every step of the way and answered all my questions oftentimes more than once. I would highly recommend Don and his team for your mortgage broker needs. He helped make my dream of owning a home a reality - just in time for the holidays!

  • Vasili and Tonja Foukarakis (Saturday, December 24 16 08:20 am EST)

    We were first time home buyers and really didn't know what to expect or how to go about it. Dione explained everything to us in detail and answered all our questions at anytime of the day! Truly went above and beyond for us! When We tell people that the mortgage part of buying our home was the easiest/best part they can't believe it, and we owe it all to Dione and Don! Can't say thank you enough for all the help and support!

  • Mike K. (Thursday, December 22 16 09:55 pm EST)

    My wife and I just closed on our home and would like to extend many thanks to Don. He had to call some audibles during the process but steered us in the right direction and got us what we needed in the end. He was extremely helpful and always available. Thanks again Don!

  • Jonathan Greene (Saturday, November 26 16 05:40 pm EST)

    Don Anfuso is the man! I have worked with many mortgage professionals in my real estate career, but Don stays way ahead because he grew up in the industry, he really cares about his clients, and he is dedicated to the transaction. When you work with Don, you close your loan via smooth process. This is the guy to work with to secure your home loan.

  • Joe Gawlok (Saturday, October 29 16 11:43 pm EDT)

    It's been a month since we closed on our new home. I can't begin to tell you how Donald made this happen. Our situation was unique and perhaps even difficult. Donald made the process simple. He knew exactly what we needed and guided us every step of the way. Communication was excellent! He had a handle on every aspect and was pivotal with the realtor, attorneys and myself. While I have worked with mortgage people before I have never worked so closely with one. My wife and I are certain that we would not be in this great home without the expert advice and guidance Donald provided. While I can't remember the name of any other mortgage person I have worked with, I will never forget the name Donald Anfuso!

  • Matt & Tara Horutz (Thursday, October 13 16 12:55 pm EDT)

    The home buying experience can be a very stressful and intimidating process. Most of the fear and confusion stems from the mortgage process. When my wife and I were in the market to purchase our new
    home, we acquired Don's services to help us with the mortgage. It was the best decision we made! Don is an extremely knowledgeable mortgage guru that walked us through the whole process. He took the
    time to explain the entire process in detail and broke it down to make it easier for us to understand. He made sure that all of our paperwork was in order and filled out properly. He was always
    available if we had any questions. Don is a great person who sincerely cares about making sure his clients have a positive experience throughout their mortgage process. Simply put, he's the best in
    the business! (source Facebook review)

  • Emily Palazzolo (Friday, September 23 16 01:34 pm EDT)

    As first time home buyers we knew that the process could be complicated and stressful, and it certainly lived up to those expectations. Thankfully, we had chosen Don to help us with our mortgage. Don
    and his team were very responsive to any questions we had, and were always quick to answer our emails and phone calls. He was very reassuring throughout the process and helped with the (many!) speed
    bumps along the way. We always felt that Don was looking out for our best interests and truly doing everything he could to help the process move along smoothly and quickly. We would recommend Don in
    a heartbeat, especially to first time home buyers who are anxious about the process. Thank you Don - Our Mortgage Professional for Life!

  • Shannon Mirabile (Friday, September 23 16 01:32 pm EDT)

    My husband and I recently bought a house and used Donald's services in the process. Our home buying experience was not an easy one but Donald was always there for us, supporting us, standing up for
    us and working hard to get us the best possible outcome. He truly cares about his clients and treats them like family, which is just what we needed to get us into the home of our dreams! Thank you
    Donald for being the easiest and best choice we made when buying our home!

  • Andrew James (Friday, September 23 16 01:31 pm EDT)

    My wife and I purchased our home back in May. Donald was extremely knowledgable and professional. He was always available to answer the millions of questions we had along the way. The entire process
    can be a little complicated for first time home buyers and he made it very easy. We cannot thank him enough. We would highly recommend him to any of our friends and family members in the future.

  • Santosh Kaimulayil (Friday, September 23 16 01:30 pm EDT)

    My wife and I just purchased our first home with Donald as our Mortgage Broker. We initially went to Chase Bank for our mortgage and was very disappointed with the service that was provided to us.
    Whereas Chase kept prolonging the mortgage process, Donald was able to get us approved with another lender in just one week. His communication and attention to detail was unbelievable. As a cherry on
    top, even though he didn't have to, Donald showed up to our closing with a nice bottle of Champagne.
    I would recommend Donald to anyone who is looking to purchase a home! What a great guy

  • Matt & Rebecca Schwartz (Friday, September 23 16 01:28 pm EDT)

    My wife and I purchased our home a little less than a year ago. We used Don as our Mortgage Professional and couldn't have been happier. Recently, without even having to ask, Don took it upon himself
    to see if there was any way he could help us in saving some money. In just a few short weeks, we were able to refinance our home, saving us a bunch of money. We couldn't be happier. I don't know of a
    single business that continually follows up with their clients in the manner that Don does. Buying our home was a big step into the unknown, but as long as we have Don, we aren't worried about
    anything at all. For anyone out there buying a home for the first time, or simply looking to refinance their mortgage, Don is your guy.

  • Danielle Delvescovo (Friday, September 23 16 01:24 pm EDT)

    Working with Don on buying our first home was fantastic. He held our hand through it all, giving us all the information we needed and staying at least one step ahead. Everything was easy, seamless,
    and efficient with him. He also had great connections for all our other needs with reliable and knowledgeable people. We knew we could trust Don and all he recommended for us. He truly made what is a
    scary and hard process very easy and enjoyable. We couldn't be happier with our new home and we couldn't have done it without him! Don is the way to go and we will be sure to use him again! Thank you
    for making our homeowners dream come true!!!

  • Len (Sunday, September 18 16 11:37 am EDT)

    I would highly recommend Don to anyone of my friends and family. Very customer service oriented and very knowledgeable about the industry. He actually when above and beyond and coached us on other
    points in the home buying process. His responsiveness to us via phone call and text while we sat in meetings or just had questions was just unmatched (source Linked-In).

  • Ali (Friday, September 16 16 10:51 am EDT)

    Donald will seriously pickup your phone 7/24 like ATMs and he is the best in NJ to close mortgage process on time and smoothly. I have worked with him recently and he and his team get the job done.
    If you are in need of mortgage broker you are reading right person's review.

  • Krista (Tuesday, July 19 16 09:19 am EDT)

    We are so grateful to Don and his team for helping us with our mortgage! We are now a month into our new home and couldn’t be happier. As anyone who has purchased a home knows, the journey to
    ownership is fraught with paperwork, red tape, questions, and deadlines. Even in the best of circumstances, it can be stressful. In comparison to others involved in our transaction, Don was the best,
    both in regard to his helpful disposition and organizational clarity. Everything was handled impeccably. Don is a gem and we recommend him to anyone who is on the hunt for a new home!

  • Santosh (Friday, July 08 16 06:21 pm EDT)

  • Tara (Thursday, June 16 16 07:25 pm EDT)

    Don & Dionne are the best! I would recommend them to anyone I know looking to get a mortgage. From the first phone call we had together they explained everything so clearly it made the mortgage
    process so super easy!! Throughout the whole process they were both so nice and understanding with allll the questions we had.

    Don and Dionne you guys are the best!!

  • Ray (Wednesday, June 15 16 08:53 am EDT)

    Don came highly recommended through my wife's long time friend.

    Even though I'm an attorney, I am admittedly naive when it comes to mortgages and the complicated process that goes along with it. I placed a call to Don and he took down some basic information and
    got right to work. What I liked most was his honesty throughout the process -- he said what I needed to do and what I could afford. There's no gimmick here and you won't be ripped off or feel like
    you're in the dark about anything. At no point does he sugarcoat the process and you're constantly updated along the way.

    From the time submitted all of the paperwork that's requested, by law, we were closed in under 30 days.

    He's in business for a reason and he helped my family get a loan and the home we wanted.

    Don's got a client for life and my recommendation every time.

  • Harris Freier (Friday, June 03 16 02:30 pm EDT)

    I would recommend Don for refinancing your mortgage. I found him very easy to work with and I appreciated that we were able to sign most documents electronically prior to the closing, and the closing
    was scheduled around my schedule. The process was painless and if I had known it was this easy I would have refinanced years earlier.
