My Reviews

“My husband and I just purchased a new build, and Erich helped complete our loan. This being our first purchase, he was extremely patient to answer all our questions and the way and make sure we were aware of document needs and deadlines well in advance. Things got complicated when we had to delay closing due to construction issues, and Erich really stayed on top of the selling agent to ensure we didn’t have to pay for our rate lock extension (we wound up extending escrow more than a month). When we closed, our escrow agent even commented on how lucky we were to be working with Erich – that he had stayed very invested in our transaction even beyond what we had seen.

Working with Erich was fantastic, and we would do it again in a heartbeat!”

“The process confuses me. He did a great job of leading me through things, every step of the way, sometimes late at night. He also came up with a series of plans in case we didn’t get the exact loan we wanted. But his ideas helped us score that loan.”

“Was introduced to Erich by my realtor and despite being in Arizona while his office is in Oregon was able to work closely with him in an efficient and effective manner to quickly complete the process to get my mortgage approved.

Would use Erich again for a future lending need.”

“Erich took a lot of time to call my wife and I throughout the entire process. He spent the time to walk us through each step to ensure we understood every nuance. It was not uncommon to have phone calls at 6:30 in the evening and even on the weekends. Erich and his team were extremely timely and prompt to answer our questions. Their email correspondence was efficient and clear – leaving no stone un-turned and nothing hard to understand. We would absolutely recommend Erich and Prime Lending.”

“Erich takes the proper amount of time to sit down with you and develop a comprehensive plan that works for everybody involved. His communication skills shine when questions arise. Availability and responsiveness are never a question as we were able to get ahold of him day and night. Most importantly the results he gets are extraordinary. Health care workers in critical care like us are a bit particular by nature. We truly appreciated his thoroughness and patience. We look forward to working with him again!”

“Erich helped us buy a house in Arizona and he did a great job on getting the loan set up. He is a good communicator and stayed in close touch with us throughout the process. He figured out we were eligible for a VA loan and, unlike some lenders, he knew just how to proceed. He called us early in the process and recommended we lock in the interest rate (at no cost to us) …and sure the rates started climbing the next day. We were very happy he cared enough to alert us to this option on a timing basis. He was proactive in getting all the details handled well in advance of our closing date and we never had to worry about loose ends or missed steps. I would recommend Erich highly.”

“Erich handled our entire home loan from pre-approval through closing. His rates and closing costs were very competitive, but more importantly, he walked us through the process from beginning to end and made sure we understood everything. As first-time homebuyers, we felt like we were in good hands because Erich took the time to explain each step clearly, walk us through the numbers, and was extremely communicative through it all. He made himself available at all hours if we had questions and was very proactive about giving us updates. We always knew exactly where our loan stood and what would be required of us. Even though we got quotes from other lenders (which Erich was able to beat), his professionalism, timeliness, and friendliness were what sets him apart. We were working under very tight deadlines and not only did we close on time, but all of our paperwork was done well in advance of our close date. Buying a new home is a huge decision and securing a loan can be very stressful, but Erich made the process go smoothly and we would definitely recommend working with him to anyone looking to buy a new home or refinance their existing mortgage.”

“I have worked with Erich, for over 10 years. He helped me get my credit score up to par to purchase my first house. He helped me over the years as the interest rate dropped, to refinance my loan. Currently helped me to to purchase my new home.

On all occurrences, Erich went above and beyond to help me through all the steps.

He is very thorough, well knowledgeable, and easily available to get in touch with.

I always felt like I was in good hands.

I highly recommend using him.”

“Although we only communicated thru emails, never face-to-face, Erich did a great job in expediting our loan efficiently. All of our questions were answered and the process went smoothly. Thanks!!”

“Erich Blume was in constant contact and always followed up on all aspects of the loan. He orchestrated a closing two hours after our sale of our home. We had the keys at noon for our new home. We closed in record time and he made all the arrangements with the Escro company to make it happen. He is awesome.”

“Erich worked hard to complete my unconventional loan situation. He is very detailed oriented and tries to work hard to complete your deal quickly to get you into your home fast with as little struggles as possible. I’m very glad he was able to work with us to complete our mortgage, I would definitely recommend him to my friends or work with in the future.”

“I highly recommend Erich for any of your financial real estate needs. He provided prompt response times, flawless service and was able to provide the financial products I was looking for. Best financial experience I have ever had – and doubt I will ever work directly with a banking institution again.”
