We called on Leigh to refinance our mortgage and were won over by his professionalism. Precise, efficient, fast and responding precisely to our request. Leigh really helped us understand the whole process. Thank you very much Leigh! We will recommend you to other people if we have the opportunity. Really great job!!!

Leigh is an absolute gem of a human to work with. As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I were definitely overwhelmed with the process. But right from the start, Leigh sat down and consulted with us, letting us know exactly the process, and the options for our specific situation. We felt 100% better after that first call. When we ended up putting an offer in on a home, she was right with us the whole time, giving constant updates, and always available to answer our questions or give advice. She even worked extra hard to make our deal happen when we ran into some weird HOA requirements that caused some additional stress and work. I cannot recommend Leigh enough, she will make your life so much easier, trust me.

Leigh McMahon is professional, detailed and accessible. As an agent I refer her to all my clients. She will advise them of all their options and tell them what they need to do to get a refi or a purchase. I just recently did a refi as a self-employed individual. I was working with three other mortgage brokers who were looking at 6 to 8 weeks to complete it. Initially she wasn't able to do it however when a new program came up she called me and the deal was done in three weeks. All the fees were dramatically less with United American and the rate was incredible. Amazing, is all I can say and I will always refer her and you should too!

Cannot speak highly enough of Leigh! She helped me through a tricky probate sale with a 3 month long escrow period and was there every step of the way. Leigh always made time to jump on the phone and explain anything I was unsure of in a calm and supportive manner, was always extremely knowledgeable and just an all around sweetheart. You're in really good hands with her and I 100% recommend!

I would totally recommend Leigh as your mortgage agent. I have been through the refi process three times and this has been by far the easiest process ever...even with the new laws and all the paperwork involved. Leigh was so efficient, always responded to my texts, emails, phone calls so quickly that I had every confidence that she was on top of my loan process. I had many questions and she answered everyone very quickly and always kept me informed during the entire process. I really enjoyed that she was one step ahead of me always alerting me to what step was next and how I could get prepared. She is very pleasant to work with, has a great upbeat personality and it always reflected in all our conversations.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Leigh as our lender. She was very responsive and prompt in answering any of our questions either via a phone call, text or email. She took us through the whole process with ease and took the time to answer in detail all the questions we had. Leigh exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and competitively priced lender. Thanks for all your help Leigh!

Leigh was referred to us by a friend and we were completely satisfied with our great experience with her. Because we were out of towners, it was necessary that we find a broker who could respond quickly to our need for fast preliminary loan approval and rapid loan processing. We also required a VA guaranteed loan to make our proposed home purchase possible and Leigh was able to assure us that she was familiar with the unique requirements of VA loans and that she could help us move through the additional requirements to a successful loan guarantee and dispersal, which she did. Her office is very conveniently located and easy to access, although we only went there once to deliver documents, all the rest of our interactions were handled expeditiously, courteously, and professionally by phone, text, and e-mail. Leigh answered any questions we had and encouraged us all along the way, even when there was an occasional delay or complication in the process. We cannot recommend her any more highly to assist you with your mortgage lending needs.

We started with another lender who was giving us a hard time, making us jump through hoops. Not Leigh...she has a can-do attitude and gets to know you and your situation. Getting a loan approval can be stressful but Leigh was always relaxed which helped us relax. She is great when it comes to communication. Anytime you called her she either answered the phone or called you back a short time later. That doesn't happen very often. If we do this again Leigh will be part of the equation. She is the one to work with...period.

Our experience with Leigh McMahon was incredible. We appreciated her dedication throughout the process. From the second we were greeted with a personal phone call to our last interaction, she was always there to make sure we were taken care of and comfortable with what was happening. Leigh was very knowledgeable of the process and she made sure that all of our questions were answered - which is saying something because we asked a lot of questions! Leigh had a no surprise approach, so we always felt like we were well informed of the upcoming steps. This was very important for us since we were first time home buyers. We would definitely recommend working with her in the future.

I recently refinanced my condo and couldn't be happier! Leigh helped me navigate through all the paperwork and kept in constant communication to let me know all the next steps in the process and secured the lowest possible rate!

Leigh helped qualify me for a loan on a home purchase. She walked me through the entire process during escrow by getting me the best interest rate and stayed within my budget. She was always available by phone,text or e-mail. Kudos to Leigh.

Leigh did an excellent job of closing a VA loan in record time. I have always heard that it takes at least 45 days to close. She had us ready in 21 days. We even managed to close while vacationing in Hawaii. She did an excellent job. I highly recommend her

My husband and I had the good fortune of working with Leigh McMahon as our loan officer. She was well versed at the escrow process and very patient to explain details we needed. We would happily refer her to anyone in need.

My husband and I worked with Leigh when moving from San Juan Capistrano to the City of Orange. We got the best rate possible, was explained step-by-step what was happening. Leigh was available all the time when we had questions which were answered completely and right away. We highly recommend using Leigh to family and friends.

Thank you Leigh for all your help! You knew from the beginning that taking this transaction was not going to be easy, but you still agreed to help. You pushed and fought for the Porras family until the end. I still can't believe that you were able to get a VA appraisal report turn around in less than 24 hours! You and your team put our client as a top priority and we all are very thankful! Great job UAM!

Leigh is amazing to work with. She helped my boyfriend and I with the purchase of our first home. She responds to all emails with exceptional speeds - even after "normal" business hours. She even responded to emails while she was on her vacation! Being a first time buyer, she patiently responded to all my questions made sure that we got all our documentation, etc., in on time. She made sure we closed on time. She was an invaluable resource to us and will use her again in the future.

My wife and I recently purchased a home and had the pleasure of working with Leigh McMahon as our mortgage officer. After the referral from the realtor, she initially called me back within 15 minutes after leaving a message (on a Sunday no less!) and assured me that she would make the mortgage application process as easy and smooth as possible. We had never had a mortgage firm make that promise before and the excessive paper work and aggravation were not something that we wanted to go through again. Much to our delight, Lee did deliver on her promise and this was the easiest mortgage process we have ever gone through. She was prompt on her return of emails and phone calls, knowlegeable, and gave excellent advice. She even kept in contact when she was on vacation out of the country. You will be impressed with her and will not be disappointed with her firm!

She was always willing to explain any questions us first time buyers had. She really help to make to whole process easy.

We were able to close escrow in just 1 month with the expert help and great service leigh was able provide

I worked with Leigh for the purchase of our house in Orange County. Leigh was a pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly to find us the best loans for our situation. Leigh is a true professional who responds right away to requests and is always there to explain things and process. I can't say enough how happy we were with Leigh's commitment to service. I would highly recommend and encourage anyone looking for a loan to work with Leigh.

We worked with Leigh to acquire pre-approval status prior to our relocation. She was responsive, professional and went above and beyond to assist us. We would recommend her to anyone needing to work through the logistics of buying a home.

My wife and I were first time home buyers when our realtor Brandon Cant introduced us to Leigh. We only had about 4 billion questions and didn't know which one to ask first. If there was a super hero when it came to lenders... It certainly would be Leigh!! Couldn't have had a better or more smooth purchase with our first home without her! THANKS LEIGH!!!

Leigh was an absolute blessing!! I chose to work with Leigh after she was referred by my realtor during the recent purchase of my first home... one of the best decisions I've ever made! My loan process could've been a disaster if it hadn't been for Leigh's tenacity and "no isn't a word" approach. (I was told I wouldn't qualify by another lender) She NEVER stopped trying no matter what came up! I always felt as if she was working on her own loan instead of mine. Her kind words, crazy flexibility, extreme dedication, and unwavering professionalism, truly have earned my business for life!! I HIGHLY recommend Leigh for all of your loan needs, she is one amazingly talented lady!

In my business as a Real Estate Broker I want to only work with the best financing people for my valuable clients. Leigh McMahon is just that. When I refer a client she immediately gets involved to offer my client a level of service that makes me look good! I receive a steady stream of communication from her during a transaction so I'm never wondering what's going on. Finally, the rates and terms she quotes are typically better than anywhere else, again enhancing my image. Leigh is truly my "go to" financing source!

We met Leigh at the end of April this year. She was at an open house we happened to stop by, not really looking to buy but seeing what was out there for sell. We had been working with another mortgage company out of Missouri, trying to get pre-qualled for a house but going through a lot of hoops and time just trying to get to point we could actually start looking. When we entered the open house, now our house, and were greeted by Michael, the real estate agent and Leigh. The house was/is beautiful inside having been completely remodeled recently and we were wowed. We were still tentative about talking about buying a house not having the pre-qual and still dealing with the other mortgage company. Leigh began to ask questions about where we were and we finally told her the situation we were in. She immediately went to work trying to find out the hold up and within 10 minutes told us there was no reason there should any hold up and said she could get us financed. And she delivered. We closed within 30 days and are now living in this beautiful, completely remodeled house. Thanks for your help Leigh. You don't know how much it meant to us for the way you worked to get us in this house.

Being a first time home buyer, my wife and I are in unfamiliar territory. Leigh Machamon showed us the way. She did not just showed but provided us with the proper information about lenders, mortgage, numbers, lingo we are not accustomed. Even on her vacation she answered our question. She is well connected and will make your dream home a reality. Her patients with handling all the numbers and papers is just unbelievable. 5 stars across the board. The dream of all dreams is with in her, trust her and will provide! Thank you so much for all the hard work you and your staff had put up with me and my Wife.
