“Our friends recommended Opes to us and Dean did a terrific job helping us navigate the process of being a first-time home buyer. He was fast, his estimates were accurate, and he delivered on what he promised. He was also able to handle a relatively complicated lending scenario. And he managed to close in 10 days over Thanksgiving! I’d definitely recommend Dean to anybody considering financing while purchasing a house. Would finance again!”
“Dean is unflappable. First-time home buying is filled with random pressures, questions and absurdities. Dean handled us and the process with grace, humor and efficiency. We will use Dean again and again for all of our future mortgage needs, as we build our formidable real estate empire. There is no one better in the lending business than Dean Catiis”
“Wow – Dean was absolutely fantastic. Being self-employed, we had a very difficult loan that I had been trying to refinance for 10 years. Not only did he get the job done, but he was so professional, wise, and such a joy to work with.”
“Dean was amazing! He was such a great partner in helping us with our home purchase, from our first conversation advising us, to the full closing of escrow with our dream home. We definitely appreciated his excellent, efficient, and timely communications. We never had to guess what was going on at all. He walked us through every number and always made time to talk to us to explain what was happening. He was also very good at handling our emotions throughout the process – always calm and available with supportive words. Our situation was quite complicated and he was able to provide great products and service so we could purchase our first home together. Highly recommend him”
