See what the industry has to say about Hillhurst Mortgage

I’ve worked with both Doug on my own personal loans and on behalf of clients. He is a seasoned professional with a large support staff that creates a seamless and efficient experience for borrowers. Doug is extremely creative with great direct and broker lender options. He is a licensed CPA and can often catch accountancy errors that are holding a borrower’s spending power back from its max potential–a trait that can make a huge difference in this appreciating market. He has also been in business prior to and during the last downturn as well as through our current strong seller’s market; Doug, therefore, takes the long view on owning property in Los Angeles, as well as supporting a client for the long term as opposed to a short term mind-set of closing one-off deals. Doug’s interest is always what’s best for the client in the long-term. Nothing but positive things to say about Doug and his team!

Anselm Clinard, The Local Real Estate Group @ Compass

Need a mortgage miracle worker? Look no further than Hillhurst Mortgage! I frequently have clients in the Entertainment industry with unconventional pay schedules, which makes getting prequalified or loan approval with other lenders almost impossible. But Doug and Jennifer are solution oriented, they think outside the box and even more they are able to act quickly – anticipating any issues down the line to get my clients loan approved. When other lenders have failed, I immediately send my clients to Doug and Jennifer knowing they will be in the best hands. I know I can always get them on the phone to answer questions and make magic happen! Doug is also a CPA so he can legally advise on tax related issues. Doug and Jen are like family now, and it IS a family run business which makes it even sweeter working with them!

Emily Sinclair, ACME Real Estate

My time working with Doug and his team goes back more than 10 years. We have been through so much together helping our mutual clients accomplish their goals and I could not ask for a better partner. Not only do they go above and beyond to help me and my clients, but they do so with a tremendous spirit and attitude that builds confidence from the get go. In today’s world, so much is based on reputation and confidence, and the great team at Hillhurst Mortgage always come through. The other major benefit to working with Doug Smaldino is that he is also a very successful and knowledgeable CPA. This is HUGE when dealing with people’s finances and helping them understand the sometimes complicated figures and costs that come with buying real estate. Bottom line, with Doug, you get the full package and the expectation that everything will work out and this is key to being successful in our very competitive market. Can’t recommend Doug and his team enough.
