I am very pleased with the service that I received in refinancing my mortgage. You were a great team in making the process go smoothly. I have been shopping around for several months and you were able to deliver the most competitive rate and closing costs. You were upfront and honest with the information you provided. Had I known your company earlier, I would have closed months sooner. I would definitely recommend your team to anyone I know who is looking for a new mortgage or refinancing.

My experience in refinancing with Gateway capital was smooth and easy in a very turbulent and difficult credit environment. I would recommend them to anyone interested in obtaining a new mortgage or refinancing. I wish Nevene and Mike Tadros all the best in the future.


“Working with Gateway Capital was a pleasure. They made the tedious process of refinancing my home mortgage simple and even fun. The Re-fi was definitely worth the effort. Before I chose Gateway, I shopped every bank and mortgage broker in Tampa, online, and throughout the country. Gateway had (by far) the best rates. They were professional and courteous (even to my husband!) and were not put off by my unusual demands. I recommend Gateway to all my friends and will use them again in the near future.


I just want to tell you how great it was to work with you on our first transaction involving Mr. McRae. I appreciated the fact that you had begun working with Mr. McRae even before he made the offer on his new condo – I think he felt more comfortable being qualified and having your support throughout the whole process.. On my end,it was very helpful that you kept me informed every step of the way; I felt confident from the beginning that you were working on Mr. McRae’s behalf. I have to say we were both very fortunate to work with someone as outstanding – what a great guy! I would highly recommend you personally, Shannon, as well as Gateway Capital Mortgage to any future clients and have added you to my Preferred Lender List. Again, thank you for all your efforts!

In the past, I have always worked face to face with a mortgage broker so I was a bit concerned when Gateway Capital, a company I had never done business with before (and located 300 miles from me) became the front runner for our loan. Yet, your friendly persistence and knowledge of the bond and mortgage business won me over. I am confident I received the best rate at a very reasonable closing cost. I would recommend you guys to anyone.

Shannon O’Brien was recommended to me when I wanted to refinance my home. I was very pleased with his service and the whole refinance went smoothly. Shannon was very thorough in explaining the process to me, returned my phone calls promptly and followed through to complete the small details of my closing. I appreciated the way he was respectful of my time and would recommend him to anyone.


As first time homebuyers we had no idea what was involved in buying a house. You both made the whole process a simple one for us, and we appreciate you walking us through everything and holding our hands through the process. It was nice dealing with someone that was completely honest with us about everything as well as dealing with someone that was willing to go an extra mile to help us out when we needed it the most. Although we were stubborn about certain things, you stuck with us, and we really appreciate how things turned out. We love our new home, and once again, we’re very thankful for you making the entire learning process a little bit easier for us!


It was a pleasure working with Gateway on the refinancing of my home in River Forest. You were relentless in procuring the lowest rate for me. You were great in the follow up through the closing date. I thank you both very much and will recommend your team to any one I run across that is interested in a refinance or new mortgage.


Thanks so much for helping me get my home refinanced, you did a great job at getting me a good rate with low closing costs. You were very honest and diligent at getting everything done quickly and professionally and you were never pushy like some of the other companys that I had spoken to. Thanks for being so patient with me at getting all of the paperwork together. I am not the most organized person. You were great and I will refer Gateway Capital to anyone I hear talking about refinancing or getting a new mortgage loan.


As of Wed., April 30, 2008, Jerome and I are now owners of a beautiful 4bd, 2ba, Ranch home in Dolton, IL, thanks to both of you and your diligence, dedication, and professionalism in helping us obtain our mortgage. We truly appreciate your diligence in staying on us to get the necessary documents to Gateway Mortgage in order to get this deal done. Even through some delayed time schedules (the title company issue), no fault of our own or Gateway’s, you managed to get us closed before the actual closing date, which should have been May 8, 2008. We are asking God to bless the future success of Gateway Mortgage. May you be prosperous with Gateway because of your demonstration of integrity. The two of you rock! You make a dynamite team at Gateway Mortgage, and through our real estate investment company, SaveAll Investors, Inc., we hope to obtain more mortgages through Gateway in the future.


Everything went smoothly. We are due to get the check next Tuesday. The title company was prepared and our agent was knowledgable, personable, and helpful. Thank you very much to you and Michael. I will refer you to anyone that I hear of needing a mortgage.
Best regards,

My husband and I were the proverbial “babes in the woods” when we went looking for financing to purchase my late father’s home from his estate. Between your straight -forward and honest openness about our credit scores, assets and financial status and your dogged determination to see the deal through despite unforeseeable and sometimes heart wrenching delays beyond our control, our dreams were realized on April 7th. Now the home my parents spent their last loving years in will remain in our family and be passed through the generations along with their memories. We cannot begin to thank you enough for all your diligence and patience through this often nerve-wracking time. As I told my friends, getting married was much easier, less paper work and a huge party at the end! But, it has been well worth it, after all. You were there to keep us up dated on progress of each tiny step forward, and to answer our silly questions, too. We don’t plan on moving again soon, but if we should need to, we will call you first thing! Take care,

THANK YOU Gateway Capital-
I could not ask for better people to be on my side! The WHOLE team went above and beyond getting our loan done. First they got us a GREAT rate on a house and right before we were supposed to close, the deal fell through on the seller’s end- needless to say we were stunned and frustrated and had to start ALL over again finding a new home- We could not have done it without Gateway taking care of us yet again from start to finish- not only did they lend support while we kept on the hunt but they did everything possible to make the transition to a new loan and home stress-free. We STILL got a great rate and the second house was even better than the first and with all of the little things that can drive you nuts about buying a home, Gateway was one of the only things I KNEW I could count on that would be done right! PLUS, once we found our home, we wanted to close in 18 days, no one thought it could be done, but you gave us the “no problem” and here we are! I cannot thank Gateway enough for keeping me sane through it all. I will definitely tell ALL of my friends and family who to use next time they want to buy a home or refinance, and I know we’ll be talking with you guys again in years to come anytime we plan our own refinance! THANK YOU GATEWAY CAPITAL!!!

The closing went without a hitch and when we left there I had to hussle to work. I just got to my desk and wanted to send this email. The closer was very nice and it was completed in 35 minutes. No surprises. I personally want to thank Gateway for all that you did for this to happen. Things were hectic and there were some surprises that I had but you guys hung with us and it went well. If there is ever anything that I can do for you please just let me know. It was refreshing to work with the both of you.

It was a pleasure doing business with everyone at Gateway Capital Mortgage last month. I needed to refinance my house to get rid of some debts and everyone at Gateway was patient and helpful.  The rates were very competitive, but closing costs were the lowest I could find. I appreciate the help from Gateway and will highly recommend you to anyone I know looking to refinance or get a new mortgage.

R. Nauman

“I recently refinanced thru Gateway Capital. I found the Gateway team to be entirely professional. They got me the best rate available and delivered what they promised. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to refinance”.


P. Wright

This is my second time doing business with Gateway Capital. After applying online I was promptly contacted by one of the mortgage professionals. From there we discussed my purchase along with my long and short term financial goals to find the mortgage that would best suite my needs. There correspondence with myself and attorneys was second to none. I really appreciated the follow up phone call to see that everything went well at the closing. Thanks again Gateway Capital for making everything go smooth.

Third time the charmer, Not really, the first 3 house closings that I have had in purchasing homes all had one or more problems that threatened the closing. Two were caused by the lender giving wrong numbers to the title co, the third had to be canceled twice and finally closed on the third go around due to the other lawyer. The fourth closing turned out to be the charmer. The first time I called I informed them that I was looking for a mortgage but I needed to close in 22 days. Gateway Capital Mortgage were terrific. Not only did I receive telephone calls up dating me on what was happening, I had numerous e-mails notifying me what was going on and what information they needed from me. They were in contact not only with my lawyer but also with the seller’s lawyer, and everyone connected to the closing, and they made sure that everyone was up to speed. The closing took about 45 mins and everyone walked away happy. Needless to say if I ever do another closing the first people I would think of would be Gateway Capital Mortgage. I almost forgot, the interest rate I received was one of the lowest advertised by any mortgage company online.

I received the final closing check today, and wanted to thank you both for helping us through the refi process. My net costs turned out to be actually less than your estimates, which was great. I’m always apprehensive and wary doing business over the internet, but you both made this refinance as painless as possible. I’ll try to track you down next time I buy a house or refi.



All closed, yeah. Thanks Chris for all your help. You helped us get an outstanding rate, and you and you team did a great job with getting our close done. Especially when we shorten the close date by a week.

We will certainly pass your name along to anyone we know looking to buy or re-finance.

Thank you Chris and Julie –

As it was in the past and as expected, we truly appreciate all you do and did for us through this refinance and the original financing. You both make the process so simple and easy for us!

One quick note on Freedom Mortgage. I received a phone call late afternoon on Friday from the Vice President of Sales at Freedom Mortgage urging me to quickly call him back regarding our loan. Of course I knew the reason why, but I did not get a chance until early evening to go home, thus when all snakes retreat to their dens. I clearly explained that if the call is to try to salvage the mortgage they lost, tht there is no reason to call me back as we are gladly moving onto a more caring and trustworthy company with our refinance.

Just wanted you to know that they are still trying to stab you in the back, but it won’t work on us.

Have a great day and we look forward to contacting you with all of our future mortgage needs.

Rob and Diana

Good morning Jill, Nevene and Michael,
Jeff and I would to take a moment to thank you for all of your help, in making our home buying process so simple. Generally speaking the mortgage part of the process is the most difficult, however this was truly not the case for us, thanks to everyone’s knowledge and thoroughness. Your patience, professionalism and helpfulness were much appreciated. Time and time again you all exceeded all of our expectations and there will be no hesitation recommending GWC to our friends and family.

Thanks again,
Jeff and Tammi

Michael and his team were a pleasure to work with. They beat the best rates I found through search engines and services. They beat my realtor’s expectations on closing despite the very recent new rules that caused closing problems with other lenders. When there were issues and questions, Michael made himself available despite the holidays, by mobile, from vacation. Even with last minute changes on closing dates and power of attorney, his team and his lender made it all happen on time and under budget.

Jeff A, Ocoee, FL
It has been really busy for me after closing, moving, work, holidays and mother was so sick at home. I would like to thank you again I’ve been telling everybody family and friend co workers about the awsome job you did. you PROMISED and you DELIVERED.
I am still in the process of moving, will definitely stay in touch.
I would definitely recommend you to everyone, I am confident that you will take care of them.

Thank you

We recently closed on a home mortgage refinance with the help from Chris Rezk.  We worked with Chris in the past so this was a no-brainer to return for his help.  If there were any questions or concerns from us, Chris would always respond in a professional and timely manner.  With his assistance the process from start-to-finish took just under five weeks !  If we ever have a need for mortgage guidance in the future, without hesitation, we’ll contact Chris.

Chris, thanks again from two very satisfied clients.
