What is a pre-approval and how to get pre-approved
A pre-approval is a formalized process where a lender reviews the buyer’s credit, income, and assets to determine whether that buyer will qualify for a loan and the maximum loan amount and maximum purchase price for which the buyer qualifies. It’s similar to a loan approval but faster and not as intensive.
Buying a home is an exciting yet stressful time, especially if you're a first time homeowner. Many buyers don't realize that there's a lot of prep work to do before you even start looking at homes. For example, did you know that real estate agents and sellers consider a pre-approved buyer's offer more attractive than the same offer from a buyer who has not been pre-approved?

Client Testimonials – What Our Customers are Saying
The service and personal attention we received from Michael Minkoff was exceptional and beyond what we were expecting! His knowledge of the local and national market and his commitment in finding us the best rate helped us in our search for our dream home. As first time home buyers everything was new to us and the most important thing we wanted was someone we could trust to give us the best advice. After patiently going through every figure and explaining what each payment was for, Michael made sure we were comfortable and sure of our decisions. He was there for us every step of the way. I'm glad we chose his services and would recommend him to anyone buying a home.

This was my second refinance with Michael Minkoff and Shoreline and I would not deal with anyone else. He offers great guidance and patience through the refinance process. He gets the job done quickly and will smooth any wrinkles in the process. He is always available to answer any questions or concerns before, during and after the refinance. His professionalism is unparalleled! I highly recommend his services.

Michael Minkoff was great. He worked through all the different ways we could structure our loan and helped us find the one that was absolutely best for our situation. I really appreciated how quick he was to respond to us throughout the process and yet I never felt rushed, as he made sure we understood everything happening throughout the process. I have been and will continue to recommended him to others I know looking for a mortgage.

I can honestly say Michael Minkoff made my first home buying experience a very pleasant one. From our first conversation he explained each and every option that was available to me and I never felt pressured into any decision. My phone call and email communications were handled in a professional and timely manner. All in all I really couldn't imagine my home buying process being any easier. Even now that the deal is done I would still feel 100% comfortable calling Michael with any questions. He extended his expertise beyond the scope of the business deal and I look forward to contacting Michael for my next home purchase. Thanks for everything Michael! Our hats off to you!!

Working with Michael was the best decision we made. He was helpful and informative through the entire process. There were nights that he was up sending me emails about how to quickly repair my credit score, while most people would be sleeping. His dedication to customer service and finding the best mortgage to fit his clients needs is exactly why we will be calling Michael the next time we are purchasing a house.

Our friends recommended Michael Minkoff to help us secure a mortgage. It's our first house so we never had any experience with the loan process. From the very first phone call I knew we were in the best hands possible!! Michael took the time and explained very clearly about the different options. He took care of every single detail and went above and beyond to bring us to closing in less than one month. During the loan process, he guided us in a very professional manner and kept us updated on the progress.
The whole process was very quick and smooth and we felt very comfortable throughout it. It was a true pleasure to work with Michael!! I'm sure we will work with him again in the future and will highly recommend him for others. Thank you Michael, you are the best!!

Our particular residential situation was unusually complicated because we had to choose loan size/package, we have multiple rental properties with mortgages and have multiple income streams not dominated by traditional employment. Michael Minkoff was extremely effective at helping us navigate through all of this complexity in a very organized, helpful fashion to an excellent financial and personal conclusion. Thank you, Michael.

I have worked with Michael twice and he is a true professional. He takes the time to ensure that his clients understand the entire process of closing on a mortgage and is always willing to explain things until the client is comfortable. Patient, kind and understanding - Michael is exactly the type of person you want working on your behalf. I would never work with anyone else!
