Jean is absolutely amazing.
She patiently worked with our tricky finances to secure us a mortgage when no one else seemed able or willing to. The financial realities of working as a freelancer in the film industry are complex (with incomes varying wildly from month to month) and this is where Jean truly shines. She speaks the language and is able to be the perfect liaison between the entertainment industry and the lending industry. We truly did not think we would qualify until we talked to her, and the process was fast, seamless, and thoroughly pleasant.
Jean is always available to answer questions, walk you through issues, and instantly reduce stress levels in what can be a very confusing process. We will be using her for all of our future mortgages and would highly recommend her to anyone.
You are the best!
You are the best! Thank you for taking such good care of us and looking out for our best interests - not to mention your availability to us.
John has been so pleased that he has forwarded your name to his colleagues at NBC News.

Refusing to be deterred by the roadblocks. . .
I contacted Ms. Gallagher seeking help to re-finance out of an interest-only 6.75% loan from 2006. I had an acceptable amount of income and assets but considerable debt, even though all payments were current.
Refusing to be deterred by the roadblocks we encountered, she figured out a way for me to be approved for a new loan, with a mortgage payment that is $1,000 per month less.
I can sleep through the night again.
I'm functionally illiterate when it comes to finances. Which is why I hired a business manager. Which is why it took me longer than it should have to discover that I'd hired One of Those Business Managers, who left me in serious financial trouble.
A trusted friend suggested I refinance my house. Reread the first sentence - he might as well have suggested I build a rocket ship and relocate to Saturn. Then he gave me Jean Gallagher's phone number and urged me to call her. "If she can't help you, she'll tell you," he said. "If she can, she will."
I finally found the courage to pick up the phone, and my friend was exactly right. "If she can, she will." She could, and she did, in honest, straightforward, drama-free English. Thanks to Jean's patient expertise, and in spite of the fact that I work in the ridiculously unreliable entertainment industry, the refinance was successful.
I'm back on my financial feet, and I can sleep through the night again for the first time in two years. Jean Gallagher is my hero, it's that simple.

Amazing knowledge, service, thoroughness and dependability.
She has been a great advisor in my life since before married, now married with a one year old baby six years later. We intend on keeping Jean in our family for life! My family and I couldn't recommend Jean more!

If you ever need a reference, think of me!
Thank you for the professional manner exhibited in arranging for the refinancing of my son's home. As you know, I brought a certain amount of skepticism to the process, but after the fact, if you ever need a reference think of me.
Now, if you can help my daughter, you'll ascend to an even higher plateau (magician)!
Note: I did.
Resourceful, knowledgeable, responsive
Over and Above the Call of Duty
Thank you for all your hard efforts in obtaining the refinance of our home. You went over and above the call of duty in making sure that everything was processed quickly. Because of you, we were able to go on our vacation as planned.

You kept your promises.
Many thanks for your perseverance and true dedication in helping us. You kept your promises and in these unreliable times, that in itself is extremely gratifying to us!

I now have a new loan, a great interest rate . . .
I'm not a financial genius, and when it comes to numbers, there are many other things I am better at. I decided to take advantage of the low interest rates, and refinance.
I now have a new loan, a great interest rate, I've paid off my high-interest credit cards, and put some money aside for a rainy day!
I highly recommend Jean's work - I know you'll be happy with the diligent way she works, and you'll be ahead of the game.

The best loan broker I’ve ever dealt with.
Jean was so wonderful. Her knowledge and patience in explaining the different loans helped us make the best choice for our circumstances.
Our loan program was so exceptional that the lender was deluged with business. Jean moved heaven and earth to get it closed as fast as possible. I would just like to thank Jean for being the best loan broker I've ever dealt with, and that includes the 6 years I was a realtor.
