Client Success Stories
You are both just terrific and you have helped all my clients buy their new homes and everyone just loves you!! Julie Oldfield, Realtor - Santa Clarita
I was looking to refinance in order to lower my monthly payments, get rid of a high interest 2nd, and pay off some debt. I didn't have much hope. My income had recently dropped & my income to debt ratio was certainly not ideal! I was in a Catch 22 situation! I desperately needed to lower my out-go, but my income wasn't enough to qualify! Or so I thought! We had refinanced with Mark in the past & he has always found the correct solution. He got it done! And I was able to get a loan that accomplished everything I set out do. Mark & Kathy are fabulous - knowledgable, accessable, willing to explain to make sure you understand the process, and will hold your hand when needed. Many thanks!" John & Trudy Giblin, Retired Artist and Accountant - Glendale
My wife and I have used Mark and Kathy Foster numerous times over the last 15 years for financing on several properties. We have done first mortgages, and numerous refinancing typically to shorter terms and several instances of just no cost, no fee refi's at lower rates. We have found Mark and Kathy to be extremely professional, responsible, prompt and most importantly to us, extremely efficient. For the most recent refi closed a few days ago, I would estimate I spent no more than a total of one hour of time trading emails, scanning/sending documents, signing and sending mortgage disclosure doc's prior to final signing of documents which Mark comes to our house for. I highly recommend giving them a call to learn how they may be able to help you. Mike & Rebecca Daugherty, Account Executive - Arcadia
Mark & Kathy Foster are true professionals in every sense of the word. As a Sales Manager for one of their lending partners, I can truly say that they stand out above the crowd over other mortgage loan officers. They are kind, knowledgeable, and always prepared. I highly recommend their services. Mark & Kathy Foster excel at helping their clients throughout the entire mortgage transaction. Matt Coles, Regional Sales Manager - Woodland Hills
I have been a real estate broker for 35 years. I have been using Mortgage Resource Group for my financing needs as well as referring all my clients, friends and family. It is effortless, they let you know the same day if they can do the loan, and they give you a list of what is needed to complete the process. I have found that they can do more for my clients/friends/family than the larger banks in a shorter period of time. They also qualify borrowers who could not get qualified by a larger bank. I have had clients who thought they should go with the bank that had their loan, only to find out that their bank couldn't do for them what Mortgage Resource Group could! If they can't fund a loan for you, there is not a loan out there!!! Barb Baisley, Realtor - Phillilps Ranch
The words "thank you" are not enough for everything you have done for us. Your customers are so lucky to have the both of you. Pat & Chris Gunning, Retired - Camarillo
We have done at least three transactions with MRG, maybe more, and our son has also worked with them. I cannot say enough about their willingness to work with you to do whatever it takes to get the best loan available for the client's circumstances. I would have to say the best thing about them is that they give you very personal attention as opposed to banks and some of the large companies who advertise all over the place. When you have a question they will get you an answer fast, and if, they are unable to provide exactly what you need based on your situation they will be totally truthful. They are utterly trustworthy and ethical and they really do care about you. Our last transaction was a refi on a townhouse which we had only owned for 6 months. I noticed that rates were down and thought it was worth a try to see if we could save some money on our payments which weren't very high to begin with. Mark and Kathy went to work and were able to save us $90 a month. Charles & Diane Boito, Retired - Port Hueneme
Mark and Kathy took care of 2 refinance loans for me this year. I previously had 2 other loans refinanced with Mark and Kathy. The things I like most about their service is that their attention to detail is fantastic, they keep me informed at every step of the way, and they don't let anything lag. From the time we start discussing the loan, right up to the very end when escrow closes and we get a closing check and paperwork, I feel like my loan is in the hands of the best professionals in the business. With many other properties and complications in our portfolio, it can get stressful trying to get a loan at the rate we want, but Mark and Kathy make it easy. They have the knowledge to completely work through any situation without undue stress. Thanks Mark and Kathy, you will always have my loan business!! Matt Lamy, Software Development Mgr - Riverside
I was helped enormously when I needed to refinance my parents' house when they were ailing. I was expertly guided and able to financially care for my folks when they needed 24/7 live-in help. It was a stressful time but MRG smoothly arranged everything Emilie Kong, Artist - North Hollywood
I highly recommend Mark and Kathy Foster of Mortgage Resource Group for financing services. We have worked with them numerous times over the last 10-15 years for financing & refis. In every case, they have been completely professional, fast, and meticulous in their processes. Likewise, they are very personable and service oriented having driven to our home or office to finalize paperwork in each case. Likewise, we have had a situation with another family member where financing through another company was dragging on, with the common request for yet more information along with more delays. We asked Mark to jump in and within a few days had completed the deal in time for closing. Bill & Grettel Fournell, VP Strategic Planning - Manhattan Beach
Mark & Kathy were referred to me by a good friend, and I've already referred friends to Mark & Kathy. Once you work with them, you'll want to work with them again and let your friends know about them, too. They are simply the best finance people I've ever worked with. I own several properties and have refi-ed with Mark and Kathy on at least 3 occasions. They're sincere, trustworthy, friendly and efficient. The process can often be an impersonal headache; with Mortgage Resource Group it's the opposite. They're accessible and they streamline the process for speed and clarity. I doubt I'll ever call on anyone else for help with mortgage finances. Stew Herrera, Creative Director KLOS - Playa Del Rey
Mark just completed our re-fi, lowering our monthly by $500. It is the second we have done with him. He is very efficient and quick to respond to all concerns or questions. We recommend this company highly. Joe & Torrey Spencer, Consultant/Designer - Studio City
This is the most amazing team of Mortgage Brokers. I really can't express how hard working, ethical and fantastic they are. They have the best rates, killer service and if they tell you it can't be done, then you know that you at least you know the truth! I have worked with them many times and had many friends get loans through them with uniformly fantastic results!! Cathy Morfopoulos - Mortgage Banker - Glendale
After complaining to a neighbor about the bad service/runaround I was getting from my bank for a re-fi, she gave me Mark and Kathy's number and told me to do myself a favor. She didn't steer me wrong!! Mark and Kathy are two of the most genuine and customer service oriented people I've encountered in many years. They got me the rate and terms I was looking for without hesitation. There were no hiccups...In fact, they made it so pleasurable to do business that the minute the rates drop again I will be calling them for another re-fi. I'm now telling everyone I run into to about them and passing on my neighbor's advice - do yourself a favor!! Pick up your phone and give them a call. You won't regret it! September Forsyth, Media Buyer - Valley Glen
Mark and Kathy have assisted us with several refinances over the past few years. They were recommended to us by neighbors who rave about their experience and professionalism. My wife and I are both extremely busy and really appreciate how Mark and Kathy do the legwork and make the process seemless. They recently managed to consolidate our first and second mortgages, get us an excellent interest rate, and drop our payments by $500/month during a season when we didn't have the time to give the process a lot of attention. I remember the time that I spent buying our home, and I almost feel guilty about how little of my time and energy was required thanks to their effective communication, use of couriers, and extensive knowledge of the field. I also appreciate how they clearly explain options and seekthe best deals as things evolved. It's great to have an incredible team working to save you money. I find them trustworthy and reliable, and I highly recommend them! Daniel Avery, School Principal - Valley Glen
If you want an honest, efficient and very knowledgeable company to work with, Mortgage Resource Group is the best one ever!I had a difficult situation, and several other mortgage companies couldn't help us, and we were told we couldn't refinance. So we called Mark and Kathy, and within the day, we had an answer. We COULD refinance, and the rates were even a half a percent lower than our other low quotes.You can't get better service! Lyn Ribisi, Consultant - Glendale
Mark and Kathy were fantastic to work with! They answered all my questions promptly and efficiently and I never had to call for an update as they called me every step of the way, even if it was to say that they didn't have anything to report. I appreciated always being in the loop and never felt confused or worried through the process. There was never any stress and at closing everything went exactly as they said it would. I can't recommend them highly enough! Lori Martinez - Loan Officer - Oxnard
We have done a few re-fi's with Mark & Kathy, and just financed a second home with them. They take care of EVERYTHING, and they do it quickly -- and with great courtesy. It is a pleasure working with them Steve & Gail McLean, Teacher & Physical Therapist - Valencia
We have known Mark and Kathy foster when we lived in southern California and before they started their own Mortgage business. Due to their service and commitment in getting us what we need, makes it a no brainer for us to choose them. There is no sales pitch, guilt or pressure in working with them. We moved to northern California in 1996 and have bought, refinance multiple times with them both on my home and investments. Their ability to know the market , not just in southern California, but all of California is a valuable asset to us since we also invest in property thru out California. They always kept in contact with us and at times would ping me about the rates knowing our needs. This is another great asset since we dont need to keep an eye out for rate changes , they do it for us. This is much different then some online trigger to let you know a rate has change. They personalize the rate based on our needs and know how to cut to the chase. Al & Mary Navas, Program Mgr & Teacher - Soquel
Mark & Kathy at Mortgage Resource Group have been our mortgage reps for more years than I can remember. Always efficient, professional and great at getting us the best deal on a refi. This past summer we finally found our dream home and MRG got us pre-qualified quickly in order to get our offer accepted. They also helped make the whole escrow process, which can be quite stressful and frustrating, go much smoother with their personal service and timely responses to any questions that came up. We have referred quite a few family and friends to them and will continue to do so. They are the best! Ana & Gerald Miller - Retired Fire Captain - Ventura
Mark and Kathy are the best! They were recommended to us from good friends and we just did our third refinancing with them. They make the whole process incredibly painless and trouble free. A few emails back and forth and next thing we knew we signing the final documents. We are incredibly happy with the results. You cannot get any better than Mortgage Resource Group - they are fast, efficient and nice, honest people to deal with. Thanks!!! Kevin & Sue Savigar - Songrwiter - Santa Clarita
KNOWLEDGABLE, EFFICIENT, PROFESSIONAL, and FRIENDLY are the words that come to mind when I think of Mark and Kathy Foster from Mortgage Resource Group. We have worked with them over several years and whether or not we were ready to do a refinance they have always taken the time to research and answer all our questions. We have done a couple of refinances and the efficiency with which they started and completed the process is amazing. It is a painless process. I recommend them highly. Any business would prosper and have faithful clientele if they modeled themselves after Mark and Kathy. Thank you Mark and Kathy!!!! Joe & Maria Wickham - Los Angeles
We are so lucky to have been connected with Mark & Kathy Foster, before we met them we were told that we could not refinance and we should sell our house. My manager referred me to the Fosters and we have refinanced our house twice with them. They make the process so easy. I highly refer them to everyone I know. Thank you Mark & Kathy for everything that you have done for us. It's so nice to be able to have trust worthy people that you can trust in this industry! Thank you again! The Cate Family Joe & Yolanda Cate - Business Owners - Santa Barbara
I used Mark and Kathy Foster for my initial loan and recent refinance. They were extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. The initial loan was my first home purchase, and they explained everything thoroughly and made it an easy process. Mark suggested the recent refinance given the decline in rates, and that was also extremely easy and will result in significant savings. Mark and Kathy always go the extra step in customer service. I would highly recommend using their services! Tammy Benefield - Finance Mgr - Glendale

My husband and I have used Mortgage Resource Group several times. Both Mark and Kathy have always been professional and courteous.

I would go back to Mark and Kathy without hesitation for any future mortgage needs. Mike & Lela Kobel - Counselor - Valencia
I have been dealing with Mark and Kathy for about 14 years. They have been my resource for my financial needs, home purchase and several refi's.

The next time I need to originate a loan, Mark and Kathy will be my only resource. Rick & Andi Still - Retired - Acton

You will not regret using Mark and Kathy Foster on your refi. I got reject for a refi with Wells Fargo. My friend has used Mark and Kathy for several of her refi. She gave me their number and i was not disappointed with any service i received. They both went up and beyond the CALL OF DUTY! I was trying to refi my dad's house and also roll in my dad's large equity line of credit loan thats balloon payment was coming due this Aug. 2015. I felt hopeless after my rejection from Wells Fargo. My credit score wasn't that good. Mark and Kathy create a plan to increase my create score so i could help my dad qualified for a loan. Well their plan worked!!!! WE GOT THE LOAN!!!!! They communicated with me every step of the way .Reduced my stress level with their positive attitude during the whole process.They continued to help improve my my overall credit outlook well after signing the loan documents. Whatever you do give Mark and Kathy call you will not regret it!!! Margaret Lynch - Education - Burbank

The process was seamless. I will definitely recommend them to anyone that would need their assistance.. Lorraine Dalhquist - Notary Public - Canyon Country
Over the past 15 years, Mark and Kathy have been there to assist us in our mortgage needs. I find it reassuring that they are looking out for our best interest. When rates drop to a point that benefit us, I usually receive a call from Mark informing me of such. We discuss the pro & cons of a re-fi and when we proceed, what a stress and worry free process. Mark and Kathy are very helpful and responsive to any questions and/or concerns we may have along the way. This is the way the mortgage industry should operate, I guess it does with Mark and Kathy!

We just finished up working with them again and it's amazing how easy it is to work with them... I made a phone call to Kathy and that's all it took to get the process started and within a month we were signed sealed and delivered. Thanks Mark and Kathy for your hard work and dedication! Darin & Jennifer Beeal - Fireman - Alhambra
I just completed a refinance cycle with the help of the Mortgage Resource Group and Im blown away with how smoothly it went. Kathy and Mark found the perfect lender for me and worked closely with both the lender and me to get all the loan documents completed along with the property appraisal very rapidly. I was kept informed on the progress of the loan on an almost daily basis and any question I had concerning it was promptly answered. Incredible as this may seem, Kathy was even able to negotiate a 1/4% lower interest rate with the lender in addition to getting me this loan at no cost to me!! I totally attribute this amazing success to the professionalism of Kathy and Mark! I highly recommend Mortgage Resource Group to anyone needing a mortgage. They rock! Barb Dakin, Counselor - Los Angeles

Great communication so you never wonder what's going on......I've even shopped their quotes and they are always competitive. Loralie Ogden, VP CBRE - Manhattan Beach
