Client Testimonials

“Let us begin by saying that there are not enough kind words we can find to express how fantastic it was to work with Elana and her team at Integrity 1st Mortgage. As first time home buyers, we were nervous and overwhelmed with the entire escrow and loan process. As you can imagine we had a million questions throughout the process. No matter what time of the day or night it was Elana and her team were always there for us to answer our questions and ease our nerves. Bottom line… if you are looking for a loan company to help you purchase your first home, re-fi, or buy a new home, look no further… Integrity 1st Mortgage is the company to work with, hands down. Integrity by definition is; “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles”. They definitely lived up to their name. Thank you Elana and team at Integrity 1st Mortgage!”

- With heartfelt gratitude, Eyn & Natasha H.

“My fiancé and I went through Integrity 1st Mortgage and used Elana as our loan officer to purchase our home. We were first time home buyers. Elana worked very efficiently and was very responsive to our phone calls, texts and emails. She closed escrow in 21 days for us and helped in any way she could in the process. Thanks Elana!”

- Ashley S.

“I have closed many transactions with Elana, and she stops at nothing to help her customers. She also is an incredible resource to the youth of our community in her charity and mentoring programs. It has been a blessing to be a part of her team. Thank you Elana”

- Brad B., First American Title

“Elana is a real study in contradictions. She looks very young and yet she has the experience and versatility to satisfy even the most difficult loan applicants (Us!!!!) She is also one of the sweetest people we know but she was a real hard charger when it came to wrestling all the variables in line to get us our loan at a great rate and sooner than we would ever have expected. So, don’t let youthful appearances fool you. Elana and her team know exactly what they are doing and they do it extremely well!”

- Marc & Bev H.

“My wife and I sold our house in the Sacramento area and wanted to relocate to Menifee. We found a house and were recommended to use Elana for our loan. We had so many issues with a bankruptcy, reduction of income, house needing repairs prior to funding, uncooperative sellers, etc. Elana jumped through all the hoops put in front of her and still managed to close our escrow under 45 days. We were so happy with her that not only would we use her again but we would recommend her to family. “

- Mark & Lisa S.

“I have been in the real estate industry for over 10 years. I am constantly looking for new loan officers to send my clients to because they always seem to be over promising and underperforming. I was actually impressed by Elana’s hard work and passion for helping my client, not just with getting a good loan and rate, but by following through with all the steps of the escrow process. When Elana gave a date or time frame for something, she actually met that deadline and that doesn’t often happen in the lending industry. I will never have to search for another loan officer again – Elana was amazing.”

- Allison W., SoCal Dream Homes

“Elana is such a go-getter! From a Real Estate Agent standpoint you can be sure that she will put everything she has into your transaction! She is communicative, yet confidential; what we all strive to be! It was an absolute pleasure working with her.”

- Krista S., Windermere Real Estate So Cal

“For the most expeditious and professional service in San Diego County and beyond, Elana is the answer. Elana met and exceeded all expectations on so many levels. Her determination and level of expertise helped me understand the real-estate world that much more. One word- #GREAT!!”

- Tony C.

“Buying a home is always a stressful experience, buying a home while pregnant is exponentially more so. Elana did her best to relieve the stress of home buying as best she could. She was able to send items via email for signatures which saved us from having to make trips into the office while we were rushing around doing other errands. She also sends information fliers and worksheets that break everything down and she always responded to our emails and calls later the same day whenever we had questions.”

- Oscar & Lupe

“Elana was our loan officer for our most recent home mortgage refinance. She helped us to convert an FHA loan into a conventional loan. Although the process was not always easy, Elana’s patient, helpful expertise was readily available to guide us through. Overall, we are very pleased with the result: great interest rate, no more Private Mortgage Insurance and we are saving money every month! We highly recommend Elana and her staff at Integrity 1st Mortgage!”

- Art and Beth B.

“We all know what a nightmare dealing with a lender can be. Elana at Integrity 1st Mortgage came highly recommended by a previous client of hers. Being a business owner we tried several companies including our previous lender to refinance our home. No one wanted to even speak with us. Elana was wonderful, she listened to what we wanted and put things in motion for us, even closing on our scheduled closing date. Elana and her staff at Integrity 1st Mortgage I would highly recommend, there are not enough wonderful words to say about her and her staff on what a pleasant, painless transaction this has been. I carry her business cards with me and hand them out when the conversation arises about business owners or anyone for that matter in the same situation as we were in. Thank you Elana, I will always put in a good word for you and your company in which you represent. They should be proud to have such a wonderful, caring person as you. “

- Jim and Carol B

“Elana worked miracles to get our loan refinanced. It took tenacity and follow-up and I think that is where Elana’s strengths excel. We met in July and although the outlook was grim, she scheduled a followup date for six months down the line. Because of the market up-swing and interest rates threatening to increase she called to re-evaluate our situation within four months of our initial evaluation. I was doubtful, but I met with Elana. As we spoke, she was calculating and looked up and said, “I think we can make this happen”. By that evening she called and said she got us pre-approved. Not only did she get us a full percentage decrease in our mortgage, but we were able to pull cash out to pay off some debt. Her staff was amazing….a big shout out to Jill. They took us through the whole process with professionalism and great communication along the way. We call Elana our “Yes” girl. Where there seemed no way…she made a way. I would recommend you to sit down with this incredible young lady and have her evaluate YOUR situation. Do it now….even if the timing does not seem perfect, she will track and guide you through to your perfect mortgage. Thank you, dear Elana. “

- Norma Rose Eckblad

“Hi Elana, Thank you for following up with me and making sure all went well with the final steps of the loan. And thank you for all the work you did to help me secure the home mortgage and get me into this home that I just love. I know it wasn’t always easy working with me especially being that I was a long distance client, but with your patience and persistence we got the job done. “

- Gary Daniels

“Hi Elana,
Just wanted to thank you for all the work you did on our loan. I know it wasn’t always easy. You made numerous trips to our house to make it easier for us and you swiftly replied every time I had a question (and I know there were many)! I would recommend you and your company anytime. You’re the best and you can tell your Dad, we said so! Thank you.”

- Wilma Anderson
