Purchase Real Estate Customer
Laurence has chosen his company's name well, as he is the ultimate Professional when it comes to Real Estate and Financing.After an initial consultation w/ Laurence, you are almost on Auto-Pilot as he handles the transaction henceforth, He sorted through all the information out there and narrowed the field to only the properties that fit my requested price, location, sq. ft., ...He familarized himself w/ each of these properties allowing me to choose to visit only the units that fit my desires.His negotiating skills were excellent and ability to heed even the finest of details was awesome.In fact, I had closing the same day I had Hip Replacement Surgery. He gathered all the necessary paperwork i needed to sign and brought them to my hospital bed. He then returned to the Title Co. and represented me at closing (w/my full legal authority).I could keep the accolades coming discussing post-closing, but I think I have made my myself clear--I couldn't recommend anyone more than Laurence, and I will avail myself of his services again during my next Real Estate transaction.

Purchase Real Estate & Mortgage Customer
My wife and I came across Laurence's information through my wife's parents who had been using his financial advisory services for quite some time. Initially, we wanted to talk to Laurence to gain some understanding of our financial situation and if it was possible to obtain a mortgage and ultimately purchase a home. After speaking with him over the phone, it was clear as to why my in-laws were so adamant about using Laurence's services. His attention to detail, genuine interest in your situation, and overall professionalism made it a clear decision to use Laurence as our financial and real estate agent. Throughout the home purchasing process, Laurence ensured that all dates were met and questions were answered ahead of any deadline. His flexible work schedule allowed for after work and sometimes late night phone calls, far surpassing any expectations of other financial and mortgage agencies. We went through many house listings and even when our spirits were low with not finding exactly what we wanted, Laurence was reassuring and maintained an optimistic attitude. I can unequivocally say that Laurence provided exemplary service and allowed us to purchase the house of our dreams. Thank you Laurence Ostrom!

Mortgage Customer: Three Refinances
My search for a Mortgage consultant started over ten years ago when I picked up the yellow pages and I started calling brokers for our first refinance. My search ended the instant Laurence answered the phone. Unlike the others, he answered the phone, which is a big deal with me. After talking with him for a couple of minutes, I knew that Laurence was trustworthy, knowledgeable, and thorough. He told me he was not affiliated with any mortgage lender and that he attended all his customers’ closings. I decided to give him my business. That was a GREAT decision.
I have since trusted Laurence for two other refinances. We closed on the last one yesterday. Not only did I get the best rate in a decade, put the process was easier than ever, despite an exponential increase in paperwork and complicated legalities over the years. As always, Laurence sought out not only the best rate but went the extra mile to save me money on what he affectionately calls the “junk” fees. This one went very smoothly; however, not all do. That’s when you will really be glad you chose Laurence. In a previous refinance, a lender “pulled a fast one” on us. Laurence dumped him, found a new lender, and the process resumed seamlessly.
Laurence is the consummate mortgage professional and the best guide and advocate you will find if you are considering a refinance. Save yourself time and money: call Laurence first.
Purchase Real Estate & Mortgage Customer
It was a pleasure to work with Laurence throughout my first home buying experience. He was extremely thorough. Anytime he knew something, I knew it too. He was always honest and gave great advice. I used Laurence for both my house search as well as my mortgage. He was helpful in many aspects because he wears "both hats". Laurence was right on with all of his estimates and recommendations. I will recommend Laurence to anyone in their real estate purchase or their mortgage needs with no hesitation. Thank you, Laurence!

Laurence has consistently done a great job for me. I have refinanced my investment properties and my home several times with Laurence. Never a snag, never a surprise.

Testimonial from an Extremely Satisfied Customer
In September 1999, I signed an agreement of sale for purchase of my first home in Harleysville PA. This necessitated a careful evaluation of several mortgage lenders on important criteria such as price (i.e. interest rate & closing costs), level of service, honesty, knowledge of both the mortgage lending and real estate industries & perhaps most importantly whether the mortgage lender would truly work for me.
This evaluation led me to the decision to have Laurence Ostrom & Professional Mortgage Consultants handle my mortgage needs. I have since used Laurence's services for two refinance transactions on the house in Harleysville—in February 2001 & August 2003 respectively. Lastly, I hired Laurence once again to assist me in August 2005 for the purchase of my second home in Newtown PA.
In each case, Laurence aggressively sought out the best mortgage loan for my needs & the closing cost structure was attractive, in particular the hundreds of dollars he saved me on title insurance. In addition, his honesty, knowledge of the big picture of the real estate business & level of service was stellar. There is nobody that I would trust more than Laurence to help navigate my way through the maze of mortgage lending and real estate transactions. Most importantly, Laurence works for YOU & he understands the fundamental bottom line—namely to meet the needs & desires of the customer—both before and after closing.
In short, I consider the decision to have Laurence work for me as one of the smartest decisions I have made in my life. Feel free to contact me at 215-799-5231 if additional information or specific examples of the above mentioned are needed.
