I got a refinance package from the major lender who we had had our home loan for 9 yr's. Inquired about payments on a 20yr fixed. To my surprise they were only $20 less per month, with dropping the APR almost 2 points.\r

My family got caught up in the economic downturn in a big way and found we needed to explore our finance/refinance options for our house. We contacted Greg Curran at First Ohio Banc and couldn't not have been more pleased with his efforts

I don't have a lot of time, but if you are thinking of re-financing, go with First Ohio Banc and ask for Chris Tanko. He was polite, friendly, curtious and most of all understood my needs/financial situation and got me the best deal out

Shopping for a mortgage to refinance our home in Westlake. Not something we were looking foreward to, but rates have been dropping and it was time. Spoke with our local bank and the current lender, both were very slow in returning calls.

After being denied by three seperate lenders for what other companies told me was to hard of a loan to get done First Ohio closed my loan in just two weeks!

My loan Officer was very informative and the rate was lower at closing than was originally told to me.

I would recommend them to anyone.

If you don't believe me just ask them to send you a copy of the good faith estimate. With processing fees, underwriting fees, administration fee, courier fee, title closing fee, attorney fees your looking at $5,000 before you even hang up the phone. And that's not even including their origination and discount fee either. Save your money and equity and stay away from this company and go to your local bank.

After receiving a letter in the mail, I called First Ohio Banc for more info on refinancing our property. I spoke with one of their loan reps who was very rude and condescending.

I explained that I had spoken with two other loan companies prior to speaking with him, and that since we have excellent credit and a large amount of capital in our home, I wanted to make sure we were getting the right company to work with. He told me, "When you're done shopping around, give me a call."

Thank goodness the attitude was obvious within the first five minutes of talking with this company, and it never went any further.

I did my refinance twice with a loan officer in Chesterland, Ohio. The process went very smooth and I was educated on the process on both occasions. This company and the representative was very nice and I would recommend them to anyone.

We did some work for the company. After the deal didnt work when they recived the appraisal value they refused to pay, but not at first first they wanted us to lower our fees, now they still wont pay or answer emails.

The sad thing is the value was there just upside down and they were made aware of this befor the appraisal was completed.

Do not do bussiness with this company!!! If they do pay us I will let you know but from the looks of the reviews I am not holding my breath.

If you are looking for employment do not work for this company. This company is full of people who have little to no knowledge of the mortgage business and this included its owner. If you come into the company as a loan officer you are given no training at all on how the company works and any knowledge of the industry you have does not matter at all. No matter what you are and always will be wrong in their eyes. The managers in this company feel they know it all and the operations staff has no knowledge of mortgage operations or human resources operations at all. Another thing with this company is there is no salary but a company draw in which the company pays you $1000.00 every two weeks and takes taxes from this amt. If you pay a company draw you do not pay taxes on it if you do then it is a salary in which you do not pay back. This is a federal law and not one retard in this company knows it. The only way they allow you to get business is to receive calls from people that the company buys telemarketing list from and most of the list are people who have bad credit and in this day and age in the industry unless you have a credit score of 700+ you will not be able to get a loan and if you get a good call dont worry you will loose the loan anyway since the processors are clueless and it will take up to 60 days to close if you can get it that far. And if you cant get any business they let you go after only a few months. In this market its tough to get business and since this company does not allow its loan officers to go out on the road to get business and only depend on incomming calls what can you do. If you are a borrower looking for a loan trust me go to your local bank or a large nationwide lender they will help you and get you a loan at very low cost. This company charges large closing cost so its loan officers can make money since they are only paid half of what they charge on a loan to a customer. work for mcdonalds you will be better off.

I have refinanced a few times in the last 20 years. I have to say that Doug and his team in the Westlake branch were great. They explained the entire process and flow in detail. I received regular updates with the progress of my refinance. I dealt with Vince and Chris who work with Doug, they were always prompt at returning calls quickly, but more importantly helped to educate me on the differences in programs as well as helping me to understand how interest rates are actually effected. My refinance was completed in about 6 weeks, the rate and payment were right on target with what I was told at the very start. Doug sent me a very informative CD on credit and how it is scored. I would recomend you speak to Doug, or one of his team members before moving forward with anyone else. Very good experience, I would recomend to friends and family.

like the other reviewer i have been working on a simple refi on a second mortgage, getting us a lower interest rate.it has officially been 3 months and we still have no closing every friday for 3 months there is a problem then every monday there is new hope but friday is coming!!! our loan person WILL NOT CALL when he says he will call, his i'll call you in 10 minutes turns into an hour or more,and i usually break down and call him, which has cost me close to $50 per month in phone bills extra. we started with a %7.25 rate well that cannot be honored now. and it is always we have it and we will close tonight, well tonight comes and goes and no closing. this past week it was everything is approved but they dont offer this program anymore so they are having difficulty funding the loan, then guess what friday i get the message we have it we will be sending docs to the closer any time now. then all of a sudden the loan person disappears from the planet wont answer calls at all, then late friday a text message sorry my phone died, so i try to call and get the story now, no answer. saturday morning another text message"we will have a yes or no today". WHAT!!!!!! we are past YES or NO its funding time, or is somebody lying to me? but here i sit saturday night he wont answer his phone he wont answer a text NOTHING so i guess I am on hold untill tuesday again and the ONLY reason i am still putting up with this is my loan person has done a lot of personal investing of time and money to get this done,and i understand how screwed up the market is right now, but I am sick of not getting my phone calls, especially when I am promised he wont forget to call!!!!

First Ohio Bank of Lending is one of the worst banks for service. The loan manager had PROMISED and GUARENTEED me of a certain rate and a closing date. Not only have I been lied to, he resigned from the company in the middle of my loan. They make all sorts of promises and DO NOT KEEP THEM. It has taken 3 months and I'm STILL not done, and only stayed because I had paid $$$ for a home appraisal and can't get it back. They never call when they say they will, and I don't want to see any family go through what we have had to endure.
PLEASE BEWARE OF FIRST OHIO BANK OF LENDING
