“I had a great loan experience thru Cohen Financial. I had to find a new loan because the first lender that me and my wife were working with delayed our loan for more than a month and then unfairly denied us a loan due to a cash gift we got from my mother in law. We fired our original loan officer and when we found Seth Cohen, we were at the risk of having the seller cancel our purchase. Seth promised that he could get us a new loan in 2 weeks and I worked with our agent to get more time with the seller. Although I was hopeful, I was also realistic and I thought that in only 2 weeks it would not be possible. To my surprise escrow got the papers and the loan got funded exactly 2 weeks after we started the process. I think you can expect great service and a knowledgeable team. You should give them a try if you are looking for an honest, reliable and hard-working professional to handle your loan. Good luck! ”

“Mark Cohen and his team are simply the best in LA! I had 4 loan experts on my deal initially working, and only Mark Cohen with his banking knowledge and relationships allowed me to get my deal through. Two of the other loan experts could not secure a loan and the third loan expert made a statement, which did not make sense. Mark knew exactly what kind of loan I qualify for , explained me the procedure precisely and his team work with me on what documents are needed. It is a fast past no nonsense environment, but if you listen and follow the steps the Cohen financial team will get you your loan. I would recommend them to everyone! ”

“Great experience with all the team at Cohen Financial led by Mark. This was a very tough transaction and they moved mountains to get the loan approved fast and in difficult circumstances and at a good rate. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.”

“Cohen Financial is one of the best, best, best companies in Southern California. Mark Cohen, Seth & the entire team are professionals that have helped many Angelinos to realize their dream of home ownership whether as a 1st time home buyers or existing homeowners that are trying to refinance and get a lower rate or are simply investors. Professional individuals appreciate all the hard work that Mark and his company do to get them the best terms available. People who are less educated may come to yelp and blame the sun and the moon for their shortcoming. Simply put you cannot get better service anywhere else. Mark has been one of the most hardworking individuals that I have ever met in my life. All the negative comments that I have read on this site are from individuals that probably do not understand the 1st thing about the financial industry or a financial transaction and they need to blame someone other than themselves for their shortcomings. Having worked myself in the financial industry for over 30 years, I strongly recommend Mark Cohen & Cohen Financial to anybody who is looking for the best to take care of their mortgage transaction needs.”

“I can’t say enough about Mark and his team. Winstar Mortgage, Wells Fargo and others couldn't get done what Mark did. When they all just inputted data to a loan terminal and out cap a big "rejected", Mark worked with people at the Bank of California and personalized our application and we got the loan and home of our dreams. NOBODY else did it but Mark did!! I will forever be grateful. He said he would get it done and he did.”

“Mark is a professional through and through. I think he closes more deals than many other brokers but is still available to discuss the details of each case upon request. That is very refreshing. His assistance and other colleagues are also very responsive. I have asked them to draft numerous pre approval letters given that the house buying process is so convoluted and it's difficult to close a deal. I have never had any negative experience despite my numerous requests. I worked with Mark and his team on several transactions now and he has been more than responsive to each and every one of my requests. Now obviously given how many files he has at one time, it's apparent that his time is limited by default but he is very effective and efficient in the way he deals with the questions that are brought to his attention. Mark and his team make sure to fully address the concerns of their clients. ”

“There's those who get the loan done really well with no BS and there's those who merely sell us "really well" on their promises of low rates and fast approvals, but end up just delivering only BS. Mark & Cohen Financial get the job done really well. They deliver what you need. If they can't do the loan, they explain why. Great service!”

I needed to pay off some debts and they, very quickly and seamlessly and with great attentiveness, made this happen for me by securing a refi at a much better rate than I previously had, and also enabling me to take equity out of my home. In fact, given our present circumstances with COVID-19 and much of the economy shut down, Cohen financial saved my life!!! Thank you all!! I will highly recommend!! ”

“I would like to give my total support and endorsement for the Cohen Financial Group. My first Sale as a licensed California Realtor was back in 1987, 25 years ago. I represented the Seller and was very nervous about my first transaction. I was very fortunate that the Buyers were refereed to Mark Cohen as their Mortgage Broker. From that moment on I set a very high standard for Mortgage Brokers and Lenders! I thought ALL Brokers would be on time, honest about the credit worthiness and qualifications of their borrowers and get the job DONE if they said they could! Well, I have learned a lot in those 25 years, and have worked with many Agents, Brokers and Lenders. There is only ONE Mortgage Broker I have recommended time after time and only ONE that I know I can trust %100 when he says he can get the loan done. Thank you, Mark, and the whole team at Cohen Financial for years of getting the job done for me and my clients AND doing it with competence, speed, good humor and honesty.”

“I would like to give my total support and endorsement for the Cohen Financial Group. My first Sale as a licensed California Realtor was back in 1987, 25 years ago. I represented the Seller and was very nervous about my first transaction. I was very fortunate that the Buyers were refereed to Mark Cohen as their Mortgage Broker. From that moment on I set a very high standard for Mortgage Brokers and Lenders! I thought ALL Brokers would be on time, honest about the credit worthiness and qualifications of their borrowers and get the job DONE if they said they could! Well, I have learned a lot in those 25 years, and have worked with many Agents, Brokers and Lenders. There is only ONE Mortgage Broker I have recommended time after time and only ONE that I know I can trust %100 when he says he can get the loan done. Thank you, Mark, and the whole team at Cohen Financial for years of getting the job done for me and my clients AND doing it with competence, speed, good humor and honesty.”

My clients were first-time buyers and Mark was amazing as he held their hands throughout the transaction. He patiently explained each step of the lending process and truly made it a painless experience. Thankful for the recommendation by many of you and now I can do the same!”

“I had a great loan experience thru Cohen Financial. I had to find a new loan because the first lender that me and my wife were working with delayed our loan for more than a month and then unfairly denied us a loan due to a cash gift we got from my mother in law. We fired our original loan officer and when we found Seth Cohen, we were at the risk of having the seller cancel our purchase. Seth promised that he could get us a new loan in 2 weeks and I worked with our agent to get more time with the seller. Although I was hopeful, I was also realistic and I thought that in only 2 weeks it would not be possible. To my surprise escrow got the papers and the loan got funded exactly 2 weeks after we started the process. I think you can expect great service and a knowledgeable team. You should give them a try if you are looking for an honest, reliable and hard-working professional to handle your loan. Good luck! ”

“Mark Cohen and his team are simply the best in LA! I had 4 loan experts on my deal initially working, and only Mark Cohen with his banking knowledge and relationships allowed me to get my deal through. Two of the other loan experts could not secure a loan and the third loan expert made a statement, which did not make sense. Mark knew exactly what kind of loan I qualify for , explained me the procedure precisely and his team work with me on what documents are needed. It is a fast past no nonsense environment, but if you listen and follow the steps the Cohen financial team will get you your loan. I would recommend them to everyone! ”

“Cohen Financial is one of the best, best, best companies in Southern California. Mark Cohen, Seth & the entire team are professionals that have helped many Angelinos to realize their dream of home ownership whether as a 1st time home buyers or existing homeowners that are trying to refinance and get a lower rate or are simply investors. Professional individuals appreciate all the hard work that Mark and his company do to get them the best terms available. People who are less educated may come to yelp and blame the sun and the moon for their shortcoming. Simply put you cannot get better service anywhere else. Mark has been one of the most hardworking individuals that I have ever met in my life. All the negative comments that I have read on this site are from individuals that probably do not understand the 1st thing about the financial industry or a financial transaction and they need to blame someone other than themselves for their shortcomings. Having worked myself in the financial industry for over 30 years, I strongly recommend Mark Cohen & Cohen Financial to anybody who is looking for the best to take care of their mortgage transaction needs.”

“Mark is a professional through and through. I think he closes more deals than many other brokers but is still available to discuss the details of each case upon request. That is very refreshing. His assistance and other colleagues are also very responsive. I have asked them to draft numerous pre approval letters given that the house buying process is so convoluted and it's difficult to close a deal. I have never had any negative experience despite my numerous requests. I worked with Mark and his team on several transactions now and he has been more than responsive to each and every one of my requests. Now obviously given how many files he has at one time, it's apparent that his time is limited by default but he is very effective and efficient in the way he deals with the questions that are brought to his attention. Mark and his team make sure to fully address the concerns of their clients. ”
