"I needed to consolidate a first mortgage and a second mortgage so my son, who works in the industry, referred me to Overture Mortgage. Overture suggested a reverse mortgage for my situation. I was worried about a reverse mortgage because I had heard about people losing their home in the past. Overture explained how regulations have changed over the years and how they work now.
Overture took the time to answer all of my questions and my family’s questions. I’m not great with computers so they printed and mailed everything or brought it to my house. They even picked up documents in person to make it easy for me. Now I have the money to spend to travel (I just got back from a cruise to Alaska), to sped on my grandkids, and I’m using some of the available cash from the loan to improve my home. And I can still pay my monthly mortgage payment if I want to!
It is a great option for me and I’m so thankful to Amy and Cornelia for making this easy."

"Who doesn't like a good scare sometimes?
Somethings are scary, like the clown from IT, the twins from The Shining, The Bride in black from Insidious, and home buying. Home buying is scary, but not when you are working with the right person. Cornelia is like Elise from Insidious, shining the light and guiding us thru the unknown territory of loan application and home buying process. Working with Overture Mortgage made the whole process smooth and easy, she was diligent to fulfill her promises and meticulous with all the paperwork details. They kept us informed every step of the way on which lender/decision to go with would be the best for our situation. Cornelia was in constant contact with us to answer our questions in all hours of the day/night, she is quick to respond to our concerns, and worked to keep us ahead of all documents required. Overture Mortgage had our best interest in mind and worked with our lender, new home builder, and agent to get the most incentive and savings. We are so grateful that our family referred us, we are now in our first home and can't wait to work with them again on our future mortgage needs. We highly recommend Overture Mortgage team for your next place as well."

"Overture Mortgage and Cornelia are the top rated & most professional home loan companies out there. We closed our home loan re-finance in the exact timing under the exact terms laid out and ended up saving thousands of dollars under our new loan. Overture delivers on their promises, provides multiple options and takes every appropriate step to get you the very best loan. Thank you Cornelia Placinta and Overture Mortgage!"

"As a realtor, a real estate investor and homeowner I have personally worked with many different lenders over the years. While I know that there are some very good lenders in our industry I don’t know of any that are willing to go above and beyond to provide the personal attention and service that Cornelia Placinta does. She does such a great job, I not only use her for my personal loans but I refer all of my clients to her. We closed our loan earlier than expected and with less cost than we were quoted at the beginning. I appreciated her willingness to answer questions and her ability to make this one of the smoothest loan transactions we’ve ever had. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a lender with some flexibility who is willing to go above and beyond for their client."

“I highly recommend Cornelia, she handled our purchase professionally and timely, was available when we called and delivered on the promises she made. This was not an easy scenario and we needed someone who would work as hard as we were to help us get into the right home. We started with expecting a 60-day escrow and hoping for a miracle and we got keys to our dream home 36 days later! We could not have gotten this home without Cornelia’s help and we could not have been happier with her work. She worked with our agent helped throughout the process as questions came up and was available when we needed her. I personally recommend my friends and family to Cornelia and will continue to come back to her for all of my home financing needs.”

"Working with Overture Mortgage was like having a friend and partner by our side rather than just a "mortgage broker". We are so thrilled to be in our first home, thanks to the hard work and persistence of Cornelia and Amy! Buying a home is a really intimidating process, and on top of that we were applying for a VA loan, so needed to feel confident that we were working with experts. As soon as we met Cornelia, we were reassured that we were in the right hands. Cornelia has years of experience (especially with VA loans) and a demonstrated passion for the industry she's in and it shows. She answered all of our million questions, is incredibly knowledgeable about the home buying/loan process and was available all the time (she took our calls at 10pm!). Overall she made the entire process so much easier than we thought it would be and took care of all the nitty gritty paperwork and liaising with our lender.
But what truly set them apart was Cornelia's genuine customer service and attention to details. Not only did Cornelia help point out important details in our sales contracts among other things, but towards the end of the loan she fought tooth and nail to ensure our new home builder would honor the financial incentives that we were promised and almost not given. We are so grateful she did that, as we probably would have missed it. If I could I would give them 6 stars just for that.
Throughout the process, Cornelia was proactive about letting us know what would be the best lender or decision to go with that would be the best for our situation and I felt like we rarely had to follow up with her (it was usually the other way around). I truly felt they were working for us and not for the benefit of the sale or anything else. Now that our loan has closed I can safely say having that confidence in who's handling your loan makes a world of a difference."
