What Our Customers Say About Working With The Messina Team
Amanda Chatel, Pistakee Highlands, IL
A+ WOW! COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER TEAM! I originally was working with another lender on purchasing my first home. The process was not going well and this lender did not come through for me. My original lender told me I was not approved 10 days before my closing date!! I was referred to Pete (PASQUALE) and his team. I was of course hesitant after being let down. Man do I wish I would have started this process with Pete first!! They were able to not only get me approved but a Clear to Close on my house in 8 days! My family and I are so thankful we had the chance to work with Pete, Christine and Jill. I JUST BOUGHT MY FIRST HOME & IT IS ALL THANKS TO YOU!!
Working with the Messina team was super easy. This was my first home purchase and they did everything needed to get my mortgage approved and all set up. They helped us out with all the necessary paperwork and explained things as needed because I didn't know jack about how loans and mortgages work.zuser, Chicago, IL

Calling the Cavalry. First time home buyer and working with Messina's team was our second and (regardless of outcome) last go at a mortgage for our dream condo in the Chicago Northside. Working with Pete was great. He knew it was stressful situation and was able to set the right expectations throughout the process, nothing was over-promised or brushed under the rug. Setting the correct expectations is paramount in maintaining trust in this process, especially when you've already had loan go south with a different firm. Pete was easy to get in touch with. With regards to the underwriting process, efficient and no filler. There weren't a ton of questions, which to me shows a team that is reflecting on the situation and answering things for themselves as opposed to a long back and forth. A+ Our conversations had mainly been about what was needed to get the job done and at closing I was happy to see savings we hadn't anticipated. I'm big fan of "under promise, over deliver." Recommending to friends beginning their search. Thanks Messina Team!
As a first time homeowner Pasquale made it very easy. He understood all my concerns and was sure to address them. He put all my worries at ease. I am very happy I chose to work with Pasquale!Julia H, Gurnee, IL

While my son was nervous all the way through, Pete delivered exactly as he promised. Pete arranged the mortgage for my son, a 25-year old first time home buyer. He was very professional, and very detailed in his explanations. He also took the time to explain every form, why it was required, and what changes to the numbers were likely to occur from the loan application documents to the final closing documents. Pete was 100% SPOT ON correct and accurate. While my son was nervous all the way through, Pete delivered exactly as he promised.Pete is an honest, highly reliable mortgage professional who made the process reliable and predictable for my son. The best part of all? NO SURPRISES. Now Jack owns his home, and he has Pete to thank for it.
My husband and I were in a tough situation, and Pasquale and Chris were the greatest team we could have ever worked with. From the beginning Pasquale reassured me that he could help us and get us our first home. He walked me through every step and made it a quick and easy process. It was a 30 day close! It was a great way to end the year. We would highly recommend Pasquale and Chris!!!!Allie Sampognaro, Rolling Meadows, IL
