In today’s risk-averse banking climate, getting approved for a mortgage can be slow, scary, and confusing—making some would-be homebuyers give up. But not if their mortgage banker is Laura Moritz of Hudson Valley-based Classic Mortgage LLC. As a licensed mortgage loan originator with 32 years of experience, Moritz is “committed to exceeding expectations.”
Effective communication with an experienced local lender makes all the difference, says Moritz. “Securing a mortgage should never be a ‘keystroke solution’—you need a real person who really cares about you to help navigate you through the process,” she explains. “My customers can count on me 24/7. While bureaucratic, big-box banks take months to fund loans, I can get clearance to close in four to five weeks.”
Recently, one of Moritz’s customers was in a bidding war on a house, and time was of the essence to present a pre-approval letter to the sellers. “I got the letter presented in five minutes, and my client’s offer was accepted,” Moritz says. The other bidder waited more than a day for a letter from his lender, and lost out.
Concierge service is “not a luxury but a necessity,” Moritz says. “I work with my clients, sometimes for more than a year, preparing them for successful outcome. When you’re buying a home, you should never be a pile of papers on someone’s desk in another time zone.” A lifelong Hudson Valley resident, Moritz has solid relationships with local title companies, attorneys, appraisers, and surveyors.
