Hi, I’m Christina Ewing. I’ve been in the mortgage business since 1998, and I still love my job! Yes, it requires long hours and a lot of pressure to deliver the goods. But, it’s all worth it! How could that be?
• Starting with a client who has zero understanding of the mortgage or home purchase process, and sending them to their closing confident and excited is extremely rewarding.
• The mortgage itself is just a big stack of documents, but behind each of those stacks is a unique human story that’s full of ups, downs and everything in-between. I love to get to know each of our clients as the interesting people they really are!
• The privilege and joy of working with my team: In today’s highly complex and heavily regulated mortgage world it takes a team of dedicated, personally invested professionals to guide our clients’ mortgages from start to finish. I pity any Mortgage Loan Originator who does not have a great team like mine behind them!
Our credo is “The Golden Rule.” That means we treat each client like we would want to be treated, and here’s what that means to us:
Whether you are buying a home or refinancing an existing mortgage, transparency and communication are paramount. We believe an educated and well informed client is a happy client, because that would make us happy! Since our business relies on the referrals of happy clients, that is our singular goal each and every time.
Now that you know what I’m all about, I hope you will give me the opportunity to work with you, your family, your friends and even your colleagues. You will all be very glad that you did, I promise!
Christina, Kyle, Jim, Luz and anyone else we spoke with at Perl were informative, patient, and calm. This was our first home and Christina and her team made the loan process so accessible for us. I'm so thankful for all her help (and for being there at our closing. That was above and beyond!). I have already told two friends about Perl Mortgage.
—Melinda Maneck, Borrower
“Thank you and your team for your assistance. This was by far the easiest loan refinancing and closing I’ve ever experienced!”
—David Coney, Borrower
"Very fast turnaround with my loan, very communicative."
—Stephanie Ho, Borrower
“Christina was amazing. She made sure we were well informed throughout the entire process. When there we hiccups she was always ahead of them making our process as smooth as possible. When we needed someone to fight for us she was front and center. Her whole team is amazing.”
—Sungano Ziswa, Borrower
“…It has been a great pleasure working with you all. Each one of you have made this chapter in my life amazing, and is greatly appreciated. From the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of my family...Thank You All Very Much!”
—Rosemary Delgado, Borrower
“Christina … you're definitely a lady who can keep their word. So I wanna thank you again and your whole team for your effort and help. Looking forward to doing business with you forever.”
—Anel Zenkic, Borrower
“I came to know Christina through a friend who closed on 3 homes with her help. Christina helped me figure out financing during my home buying process and I have nothing but great things to say about her work. I'm a first time home buyer and had a lot of questions during the process. Christina and her team responded very quickly to address any of my concerns. We closed on a foreclosure in 1.5 month and that's with end of the year holidays!”
—Larisa Hoffenbecker, Borrower
“I had a great experience with you (Christina). I could tell that you care. I pay very close attention to the little things like promptly returning emails, calls, and flat out kindness. Some people don't care but it was very clear that you do. You are awesome!”
—Karen Bradley, Borrower
“You (Christina) have worked so hard and put so much effort into our application, we cannot thank you enough. We know the time and coordination (with the processing department) you put into this cannot be measured. Of all the loan officers that I ever dealt with, you are without a doubt the best. Thank you for being a true hard working professional.”
—Percy Davis, Borrower
“Worked with Christina Ewing when she was with prospect mortgage and she made sure my son's first home purchase was a very pleasant experience. When we decided to refinance our own home the old prospect email I had got rejected. So I looked her up and found her with Perl mortgage and emailed her. Glad I did.”
—Rosa Maria Colunga, Borrower
“This was our third time buying a place so it wasn't something new to us. The first time we spoke to Christina was on the first of four bids. We lost the first three and were successful on the fourth. (Meant to be) She was so responsive and helped guide us through the process. We were given different lending options but she also helped guide us to what made most sense for our long-term goals. Even though we didn't have the 20% down, she was able to find a lending product that met our needs. Obviously, the rules have changed in terms of documentation, which was a bit frustrating, but Christina and the whole team (Patti & Kyle) helped us through. Our closing was so fast because everything was in order. All the i's dotted and t's crossed. A huge thank you for making this an effortless process and reaching our goal.”
—Steven J. Pryor, Borrower
