Mark Zaia is the best loan officer one could ever work with - highly informed, very responsive and resourceful and really diligent! We couldn’t have closed on our house without Mark’s support.

Mark and his team at Total Mortgage are first class all the way around. Mark has a remarkable feel for the market conditions and thanks to him, we were able to lock in a great rate when rates were doing nothing but going up. You can't teach that. It comes with experience, and that's what you'll get with Mark - an experienced professional that genuinely cares about putting his clients in the best and secure position for their new homes.

Mark found us the absolute best deal, working to secure financing 6 months in advance for our new construction home. By the time we closed, interest rates had increased 2.5%. Throughout the process, Mark communicated clearly and often, answering all of my questions and making me feel confident in my choice to go with him. Time and time again, he made it clear that he loves what he does. His passion and dedication are saving me several hundred dollars each month in interest payments!

The decision to with Mark and Total Mortgage was one of the best we’ve ever made. We had been working with a big bank, which was rigid and unhelpful, when a friend referred us to Mark. He made it possible for us to lock in loan at a great rate, while our home was being built, and thereby avoid today’s market chaos. Throughout the process, he answered our questions thoroughly and quickly. Total Mortgage’s support staff was responsive and helpful, as well. Thank you!

Mark was readily available for any questions or concerns that we had and equally transparent if something came up that needed our attention.
