What Our Clients Say About Our Property Financing Services

Kevin Hall

Los Angeles, CA

Alex Sarkeshik has all of those qualities -- knowledge, patience, judgment -- and many more personal and professional skills to give you the best advice on your home purchase and loan. I am an attorney and familiar with real estate and lending matters, but I still learned a lot from Alex, who took the time to make sure I understood every step of our condo purchase and the loan he obtained for us. He knows the markets, he explains the documents, and he gives the best advice on purchase negotiations and borrowing strategies. Alex is highly recommended.

Update following our refi: Alex is knowledgeable, diligent, honest, and very hard working. I am an attorney with substantial real estate background representing lenders, so I feel well qualified to give an opinion about Alex and Optimum First Mortgage. I have been very impressed with the level of service and expertise from Alex and the entire Optimum staff, and that is based on their having financed our purchase mortgage and two refi transactions. All three transactions closed timely and according to the plans and terms Alex laid out. I recommend Alex and Optimum very highly to any mortgage borrower.


San Diego, CA

Alex Sarkeshik of Optimum First Mortgage is the best! I have done over 7 home loans/ refi and Alex is the BEST I’ve ever worked with! He is honest, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable. I save hundreds of dollars on my monthly mortgage due to his guidance and experience. I highly recommend Alex and Optimum First Mortgage.”


Corona, CA

I was referred to Alex through a friend. From the past 30 days working with Alex, Alex has been professional, helpful, and he’s always been available when I have questions or concerns. Alex is also very knowledgeable. It seems like Alex has been in this field for a long time he knows what to expect next.

In addition, Alex was always proactive and making sure I was getting the help I needed. He also provided recommendations from a home insurance company which I ended up going with. The loan process was straightforward - Alex and his company were able to close on my home in less than a month - I think 5-7 days before my expected closing date. Overall, I think it was a great experience working with Alex and his company. I would recommend first time home buyers (as in my case) or anyone who’s looking for a service in real estate to contact Alex.

Thanks again,
