The entire experience was OUTSTANDING!! They were all very professional and were ready the moment we stepped in. We were totally blown away by how everyone was so nice and treated us like royalty.
Working with LMP was one of the most pleasant experiences of my life. It's rare to say that when talking about mortgages, but its completely true. I originally heard about LMP through my advisor and his wife who had used them previously and only had positive things to say. Mr. Spiwak was attentive, explained the process of taking out a mortgage to me very clearly, answered all my questions and gave me sound advice on how to avoid pitfalls through out the process. I'm a 24 year old female and this was my first home purchase- While I certainly educated myself on the process his advice was very appreciated and necessary. His team deserve only the absolute best in the world specially Katey who is an absolute wonder and a rockstar. I may name my first born after her. She was incredibly knowledgable, personable, approachable, worked with me and gave it 200%. I can't thank her enough for her incredible hard work. She's the reason why I was able to close on my house ahead of schedule during the holidays! I'm a graduate student at the University of Florida and they were so accommodating to my crazy finals schedule- helping me get things done in a timely fashion despite my lack of time and sleep. CLOSING TOOK 22 DAYS! 22! Katey saved me from being homeless as my lease was ending a mere week later! She is amazing, I can't stress it enough. During the closing I met and worked with Christine who was a joy and helped me through a slight snag at closing (my fault!). Honestly, if you want a team that has your back, is willing to work with you and for you, a team that is a pleasure to interact with and will guide you through the stressful process that is buying a house LOOK NO FURTHER. Another point- their interest rates were competitive.
Marc Spiwak was highly recommended to me by my realtor, and now I know why! He's easy to work with, extremely good at his job, and he goes above and beyond for his clients. With Marc and the Landmark team on our side, my husband and I were ready to close on our first home in 14 days! We also felt confident that Marc had found the best loan program for us. He even went to bat for us and helped us get a better deal on our house! I would highly recommend Landmark Mortgage and Marc Spiwak to anyone looking for a mortgage!
Marc and his team were outstanding! I can say enough about this team I practically had them on speed dial and they always answered the phone and every question I had. I used a VA loan and they are not easy but this team was there for everything every step of the way!
When I got a new job in Gainesville, FL, I had to commute from Tampa (2 hours) while I looked for a my first house to purchase. I bank with USAA and thought it would be easier to obtain a mortgage with them since they have always been so helpful in the past. However, they were very unhelpful and THE DAY before I was scheduled to close on the house they called me AN HOUR BEFORE my final walk through to tell me the loan did not go through. I had already given my apartment notice of my move out day and everything! I contacted my realtor to let her know and within an hour Mark called me to see how he could help. He and Katie Martin were so helpful and explained the whole process in terms I was able to understand as a new home buyer. They worked extremely hard to help get me into my new house and they had me approved and into my new house within 2 weeks of when I was supposed to close with USAA. I cannot say enough of how helpful and understanding Mark and his team were. Though I do not hope to go through this process anytime soon, I would highly recommend Landmark to anyone about to go through the home buying process! Thanks again Mark!
To Marc Spiwak and processor Katey at Landmark Mortgage, a resounding Thank you! for saving a deal that looked like it might collapse! I had a listing that was under contract. On the day we were supposed to close, we found out the buyer's lender, without warning or explanation, told her they would not give her the loan. My sellers were already under contract on another house, and those sellers were also under contract to purchase, plus the buyer had already given notice to her landlord she would be moving out.
I called Marc Spiwak and asked him, "Are you wearing your Superman cape?" and he said, "Give it to me." When I explained the situation, he called the buyer and was able to give her clear to close on a loan within 11 days. That's almost a miracle in the lending business. Landmark Mortgage and Marc Spiwak will always be my go-to lender when making recommendations to buyers. They were heroes in this situation and there are many people in their new homes tonight, filled with gratitude that Landmark Mortgage could make it happen!

My realtor suggested that I should go through a local mortgage planner rather than one of the big banks. She introduced me to Marc and I decided to give him a chance and see how he would do. Since day one working with Marc was a pleasure and his professionalism and responsiveness to my questions was outstanding! I really felt Marc had my best interest in his mind and he took the time to explain all the details to me and gave me very good advices along the way. I could not have hoped for a better person to work with during the sale of our old house and the new purchase. I can highly recommend Marc to everyone I know!
If you are looking for honest, helpful, professionals to take you through the mortgage process then Rob and his team are the place to go! I highly recommend Landmark Mortgage planners, I got my original mortgage with them and I just went through a seamless refinance with them, that lowered my payments and saved me thousands in interest payments. Mark did a great job and the whole process was not stressful at all! Thanks again for another great experience!!
Wow! I can't eloquently describe how please I am with Katherine and Marc for all of their wonderful help. They made our mortgage process seem so easy that I rarely stressed over any of the hiccups. Compared to our previous experience this time around was amazingly smooth! They were both reachable within a single phone call and responded to emails very quickly. I really cannot say thank you to them enough! You two are amazing! Thank you!
Landmark Mortgage made buying my first home easy and painless. They answered all my questions and provided helpful information and recommendations to help me save time and money. We even closed two weeks early!
