Lisa Greenhalgh, a special education teacher from Rhode Island, first starting using Zillow seven months ago. As a first-time home buyer she found Zillow to be “easy to use, organized and had all the information on each home that I was looking at.”
After meeting lender Brian Palombo at a first-time home buyer’s seminar, they started working together. Palombo even helped Greenhalgh improve her FICO score so that she could get an even better mortgage rate. He helped Greenhalgh “walk through the whole process, and after shopping around no one could match what he offered.” Greenhalgh particularly appreciated Palombo’s patience, availability, helpfulness and ability to answer a lot of little questions.
On Oct. 25, Greenhalgh submitted a review of Palombo on Zillow and was automatically entered in a drawing for a 16 GB Wi-Fi Retina Display Apple iPad, which she ended up winning.
Greenhalgh says she “continues to use Zillow almost daily.” Now she will be able to use the new Zillow Mortgage Marketplace App for iPad, which is a great tool if she chooses to refinance in the future. The iPad app includes a refinance calculator and the ability to shop for real-time refinance quotes, plus so much more.
