Mark and his team were invaluable to my home-buying experience. There were a few occasions where I was less than pleased (more related to the numbers than their service), and Mark and Mike were quick to help explain and answer any questions I had. They were genuinely kind and more than willing to take the time to ensure I was satisfied. The team at Advantage Mortgage works hard, and it shows through the wonderful customer service they provide. I am so incredibly grateful to have had their assistance in going through the home-buying process. I know it would not have been the same without them. Therefore, I would highly recommend this group! Thank you, Team Aalto!

Mark Aalto and his team did an incredible job representing my buyers with the purchase of their new home. He was an exceptional business partner who kept me (and the buyers) posted throughout the entire transaction. His communication is spot on! There were some circumstances that came up, out of all of our control, that made the lending process a bit more challenging. We feel so fortunate that Mark was the lender we were working with to handle any issues that came up. He was resourceful, efficient and very responsive. I truly believe if Mark wasn't the lender representing this transaction there is a very good chance my buyers would not have been able to close this purchase. I can't say enough good things about Mark and his team. I highly recommend them.

We were lucky enough to be referred to Mark back in 2014 when we were buying our first home. His attention to detail and promptness made the loan process extremely smooth. We just finished working with him on purchasing our "fixer upper" dream home and we can honestly say that without Mark and his team we would not have made it to the finish line. Our purchase had every pitfall imaginable, from the market slumping, contingency purchase, failing appraisal inspection etc. Through it all Mark provided guidance / referred us to good council, locked in our rate and watched it like a hawk, walked us through the numbers as finances changed to make sure that we were not over extending ourselves as finances changed through the transaction. As far as my wife and I are concerned, Mark Aalto is the only person we will use for a loan. Period.
