Don and his team are true professionals. They got the loan done fast and their communication was excellent. Definitely my go to lender now.

-Rob N.

I have been selling real estate for over 20 years and Don Maher is one of the best lenders who I have ever worked with. He is fast, friendly, and talks straight.

-Mike D.

Don knocked it out of the park on his loan for my client. The condo association had too many owners and not many could do the loan. Don not only was able to get it done, but he got it done quickly and with no issues at all. Very professional.

Don Maher and his staff at Coast 2 Coast were great to work with, very professional in communication, and got the job done despite a challenging timeline. We couldn't be happier with our new home, and I would highly recommend working with Don for your loan!

Jeff S.

Thousands Oaks, CA

Just when I thought my nightmare is going to repeat itself when I am getting into another condo with litigation, I found Don. Don was able to assist with financing my mortgage when no other major banks were willing to deal with a HOA with litigation. I was able to close on-time and at an expected rate. I highly recommend Don for financing your mortgage! (I wish I knew Don several years ago!!!)

Don and Jamie got me out of my current loan super fast. A very difficult loan for my Pasadena Condo which they got done leaping through hurdles others couldn't do. I tried two other lenders and they both failed.

Don and Jamie were a great help for me securing a loan on a condominium that others wouldn't deal with. I would highly recommend them if you're looking for prompt, professional, and easy to communicate with people.

Don came in and saved the day for our deal. His timeliness, efficiency, knowledge of his trade was actually inspiring to me and really comforted the borrowers when other Mortgage officers just weren't coming through. He worked quickly and thoroughly, and I look forward to working with him in future deals.

Great experience working with Don and the team at Universal Capital Mortgage. They know how to get mortgages for products other people won't or can't handle. Go to them for non-warrantable condos, you won't be disappointed.

Hayden H.

Richmond, CA

If you need a loan for a condo with an open litigation, don't waste your time with any other lenders. Just go straight to Don and he'll get it done. I learned the hard way trying to go with my original lender that enticed me with a low rate. They assured me they could get it done... that was a bunch of hogwash. Don specializes in this for a reason: he's the best at what he does. N.

Don Maher with Universal Mortgage was very professional and streamlined the process. We were unable to secure a loan because it was a non-warrantable loan and we planned to walk away. The HOA contact gave us Don's contact and he was able to give us a great loan with a low fixed APR. I highly recommend Don for any non-warrantable loan you you need.

April K.

Richmond, CA

Excellent professional service provided by Don and his team. I contacted Don after other brokers fail to meet the loan requirements due to their lack of knowledge on non warrantable loan for a condominium. Don assured me that he can close escrow within the very limited time we had and he surely did. We were very pleased with his service, knowledge and experience. I highly recommend him for mortgage financial needs.

Nahed B.

Sebastopol, CA

Don Maher was amazing. He was recommended to me by my realtor when I found out that the condo I wanted to purchase was in litigation. He really knows this field -- the first time we spoke he immediately (literally) looked up what was going on with my condo association and explained the situation. He then emailed me my options. He was very straightforward and clear about the rates and costs from the beginning.
The application process was easy and fast and in no time at all I was approved. Don also got things done quickly at the end, I was waiting for another property to close and the timeline got tight but he was able to move quickly and close. I felt like I was in competent hands the whole time. Highly recommended.

Monica G.

Los Angeles

Don was amazing in helping me get my dream home. I fell in love with a condo where the HOA was under litigation with the developer and therefore no traditional bank would give me a loan for it. I was about to lose it to a buyer who came in with all cash, but Don was able to get me a pre-approval letter stating that I was pre-approved not only for a loan, but specifically for that building despite the litigation. Not only did that pre-approval letter help me win a bidding war (there were 6 other offers), but we closed escrow in 31 days. Don even worked while he was on vacation. He was great about answering any questions I had during the process, and my realtor said she had never seen a lender so on top of their game before. I would recommend Don a 1,000 times over.

I'm a former real estate broker, so I've worked with many mortgage brokers. As a major nitpicker, I fear for the sanity of anyone with whom I have to work - especially on a personal basis. YET here, Don Maher at Universal Capital never flinched no matter what I tossed him. Always even keel, friendly, responsive on the phone, he offered alternatives whenever we hit a snag. As of this writing, I've done TWO transactions with him, and, without hesitation or even comparison shopping, I would do many more. I even tell my friends and other agents about him. You want someone who knows the market, the rates, where an individual stacks up, who knows how to work with the underwriters, and most particularly, someone who can provide the information that is essential for making decisions that affect one's life. That's Don.
