  • Buying a home is a major event in life. The entire home buying process is complex. There are many unknowns and concerns that can cause severe stress during this home buying/financing process. Working with Jay removes all the stress. His knowledge and experience are top-notch. His level of professionalism is second to none. Working with Jay Kunkle made my home financing process stress free. The peace-of-mind that I had because of Jay was priceless. I can't imagine using anyone else.

    One of my coworkers highly recommended Jay to us, and I'm so grateful, as he was such a pleasure to work with!  Jay and his dedicated team were able to quickly provide us with a pre-approval letter for our offer submissions.  He patiently worked with us during our year-long home search and was always accessible and super responsive, even when we sent him requests to update our pre-approval at 10pm and on weekends!  He always graciously called and spoke with listing agents who required a conversation with our mortgage broker.  Beyond being professional, Jay is genuinely a nice guy and I always felt like I was in good hands (which is sometimes hard to come by in this industry).
     -Nicole N. and Wayne C.

    We had a bit of an unusual loan and I found the Commerce Team work very hard to keep us informed and we’re very helpful with any questions that arose. I would highly recommend Commerce to friends and family with the need true professionals to help in today’s complicated experience of securing a home loan.
    -John F.

    Jay is a consummate professional. His attention to detail, response time and follow up are all excellent. His market knowledge is first rate. Jay has helped me with several mortgages, second mortgages and HELOC's. I would refer Jay to my closest friends.
    -Rob T.

    I have had a great experience with Jay. I've already had a few mortgages with him, and he's very professional, kind, attentive and it is a pleasure to work with him. I refer all my friends and family to him, and they have had similar, great experiences. Jay lets me know when the best times to refinance are, and I feel complete confidence in him.
     -Avi & Dorit C.  

    I can highly recommend Jay Kunkle for all residential lending needs. Jay is highly professional and conducts business with honesty and integrity.

    -Richard R. , Publisher, Orange County Business Journal

    Jay Kunkle has been an excellent resource for providing my clients with financing. He is thorough, confidential, and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
    -Tim C. , Villa Real Estate

    Working with clients who are sophisticated buyers and sellers of unique properties, we have found that Jay Kunkle consistently serves our clients’ needs in a professional and timely manner. It is reassuring to us that our clients’ expectations are being exceeded.
    -Chris L. , formerly of Coldwell Banker/Strada Properties

    It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Jay Kunkle and his team.  I was introduced to them by our mutual client and have to say I was a bit concerned, because I had never worked with them before and they were also located in another city.  My fears completely went away, once I realized how professional and responsive Jay and Linda were.  I quickly realized our client was in excellent hands and there was no reason to worry. Their many years of experience was evident.  They provided me with continuous updates, which is critical when doing an escrow. The lines of communication were open at all times.  It didn’t matter that their office was located in a different city.  This particular escrow was complicated and yet their attitude throughout was wonderful!   I would highly recommend Jay and his team for your lending needs.  You won’t be disappointed.
