This is our second refinance with Anthony who made the process easy both times. He is very knowledgeable and an awesome and cheerful person who does what he tells you he is going to do. He provided all of his phone numbers and email addresses and told us to contact him anytime (which we have) we had a question or just wanted to talk to him about the process. He was always willing and eager to answer our questions. We really appreciate the time and effort that Anthony put into getting the entire process completed.

George R.

Brighton, CO | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

I have had several mortgages and re-fi’s through the years. And I understand that obtaining any mortgage product is becoming more and more regulated and complex. However, Anthony made it so much easier than I have ever experienced, kept us completely informed, and was always there to answer questions or to give status updates. I have experienced that to the extent that Anthony provided for us before. Thank you so much, Anthony!

Michael K.

Ventura, CA | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for helping me get this new loan.  Hopefully you can use this email to show your boss or anyone it may concern in the future of how appreciative I am for the work you did for me.  

At the beginning when you first contacted me, I had no interest in refinancing because I had just finished a refi with another company where they put me in a really high interest rate and told me I wasn’t allowed to refi for at least 6 months.

After speaking with you for a few minutes, you put me at ease ensuring me that as a veteran, I can’t be locked into a high rate, if there were lower rates available to me. I was very skeptical at first and wanted you to double verify and then even triple verify that it was OK for me to refi out of a high rate only one month after getting into it.  You remained confident and continued to ensure me that everything was legit and that I had every right to get out of my high rate.  You put me at ease by referring me to your company website so I could see your picture and know that you weren’t trying to scam me.  

We closed this loan in record timing and you lowered my rate from 4.7% to 3.25%.  I didn’t have to pay for anything, and now I’m saving 300 a month!! This process was streamline and I barely had to do anything at all. You made everything super easy for me without any pressure.

Your communication was on point, you were not over bearing and always treated me with great customer service.  I really appreciated the fact that you were open to text messaging and assured me that contacting you at anytime was OK.  You also texted me every Monday and Friday for updates on progress.  You followed up every text message with, “please call me anytime with any questions you might have.”  I hate talking on the phone unless its necessary, so having the ability to shoot you a text message when ever needed was really great!! 

You are very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I never once felt uncomfortable and never felt like I was being pushed or pressured into anything.  

I will certainly save your phone number and if rates get lower, or I decide to cash out or sell, you will be the first person I text (haha).

Thanks again so very much for your attention to detail, friendly service, and most importantly, getting me a GREAT loan at NO cost to me!!!

I will be glad to refer you and your company to my huge network of fellow veterans, especially those that already own homes!

Aileen and Daniel W.

Kent, OR | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

I had never heard of Strive Lending before but I received a card in the mail and I was compelled to call and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Alan Koszyk worked so hard for us. He even contacted me on weekends to keep me informed and up to date! He was/is kind, understanding, respectful, patient, informative and truly cares about us as people. He made the whole transaction seamless and stress free! I recommend Strive Lending to everyone that wants to save money, have a low interest and do it stress free! Thank u Alan Koszyk! And thank u Strive Lending for hiring such a great person to represent u! 👏🏾👍🏾👊🏾🙋🏾

Timothy F.

Windsor, CO | Loan Type: VA Cash-Out Refinance

What can I say about Donald Pope? He is terrific. I was just about to pull the plug on this whole procedure. Donald stepped in and saved the loan, not only for Strive Lending; but for us also.

He was our loan office back in March, and the same type of outstanding service. He knows how to deal/talk with the customer. He follows up every step of the way. What he says he will do, he does.

You need many more loan officers like Don Pope.

Mark C.

Pine Grove, CA | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

Really great service and nice, friendly people to work with. A special thanks to Andrew Schoessel for all his help

William H.

Johns Island, SC | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

Strive Lending is a fantastic company to work with. I’ve actually done TWO Streamline Refinances with them now! About a month after I refinanced into the lowest rate I’d ever heard of on a 30 year fixed with no points, they gave me a call letting me know that the rates had dropped and offered an EVEN LOWER rate. Frankly, I felt like the offers were too good to be true and studied over every estimate I got, but they were true to they’re word and even beat their initial estimates. Both of them went very smoothly. If there was something that didn’t make sense (and I’m a stickler) I knew that I could call Dave Byun directly (sometimes pretty late) and that he would get me an answer ASAP. Hands down lowest rates, lowest fees and the best lending team working for you to get the best loan for you. At a time where VA refinance offers are bombarding your mailbox by the dozen with super high fees, this is one company you can trust to treat you the best and get you the best deal possible. I have recommended them to my fellow veteran friends and highly recommend them to anyone looking to do a VA Home Loan of any kind.

Wayne H.

Camden | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

Nik was very courteous and helpful in any information I needed to know…He always responded back very quickly when I left messages on his phone. I appreciate it. Thank you for your professionalism..


Vernon, NJ | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

Words could never fully express how simply AMAZING Don Pope has been from the first day that I spoke to him about my VA Streamline Refinance. I don’t even know where to begin in speaking about this man; whom loves what he does; cares deeply for the Veterans he is helping; and just simply exudes positivity!!!!! Don communicated with me twice a week through this process and never left me in the dark about anything and this was so very much appreciated!! He was always available by phone and/or email to answer any question that I might have and this again was so comforting to know!!! My only regret is that I did not find Don Pope and Strive Lending until this streamline refinance; I so wish I had known of Don and used him during my initial VA Mortgage. Don Pope is an irreplaceable asset to Strive Lending and I am a forever customer of Strive Lending because of Don!!!! Anyone looking to obtain a VA Mortgage and/or VA Streamline Refinance; put your trust in Don Pope; you will be soooo pleased you did!!! Don you are simply the BEST and THANK YOU; THANK YOU; THANK YOU for everything!!!!!!

Donald has really gone the extra mile for me. My husband has been very ill, and he went above and beyond on my VA loan. We faced a few hurdles, and he is still helping me anyway he can. It is nice to work with someone who really cares about their customers.

Ryszard Z

Louisville, CO | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

I find Strive Lending and its officials attentive to my needs. At every step they where on the phone or email to let me know where we were with process. As the changes in the economy happened and the interest rates dropped they were on the phone to let me know that they have begun the paperwork for the lower rate!! I fully recommend Strive Lending to all military and non-military personnel!

Anthony is an excellent communicator. He kept me informed during every phase of the refinance and always made sure I understood the “next steps”. When there was no update he simply called to wish me a great day. The refi process was extremely painless and was much quicker than I had imagined. I cannot say enough good things about Anthony and the entire Strive Lending team. They truly care about veterans and fight to get us the best rate available.

Thank you Anthony, I salute you!

Calvin G.

Strive Lending provided a very pleasant experience transitioning to a new rate. Communication was timely and relevant, a truly painless experience. I would gladly recommend Strive to other homeowners.


Hacienda Heights, CA | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

When I received your mailer I was skeptical. I called and liked what I heard so I applied for the refi. I was very satisfied with loan officer Andrew Schoessel. He said it would take 3-4 weeks for it to be done and it was. Very simple and easy. It was a pleasure to work with Andrew and I was glad I contacted Strive lending.

Jeanne B.

Aurora, Colorado | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

Everything I was told happened the way you said it would. It was fast, easy, and on time as promised. Anthony was awesome…friendly, truthful, efficient, knowledgeable, and very sweet. The process went

Strive VA absolutely was wonderful. Anthony Raineri was exceptional and always available to answer questions as he strategically processed my refinance loan. I wouldn’t need to go anywhere else. Thank you.

William M.

Apple Valley, CA | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

This was a very pleasant and stress free transaction. I kept waiting for the other shoe to fall and the call to perform a load of tasks at the last minute without any time to do an adequate job. It didn’t happen. Everything was handled by Strive’s office and personnel to my complete satisfaction. I’ve waited writing this review to insure nothing was going to happen after closing the loan. Nothing happened and we are set up with the new lender and the payments are to the penny of what they were supposed to be. We are very happy.

Ronald H.

Portland, TN | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

From the first phone call to the closing it has been a pleasure. Always just a phone call away to answer questions. I would recommend them to anyone and if the need ever arises I will use them again.

Mark C.

Pine Grove California | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

Easy process because everyone was so helpful. Andrew walked me through anything that I needed help with. I would recommend Strive as a good first choice. Thanks


Bakersfield, CA | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

Anthony was very clear and correct in his statements. He handled the whole process seamlessly.

Alan T.

The Villages, FL | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

You have made the process of refinancing homes so much easier. Using the online system to sign documents and forward information is the latest in streamlining this process. No more going to offices across town, no more inconvenient gathering and sorting through your documents to provide information. Just scan or forward online. So much easier to close with the closing agent coming to you. How convenient and simple. My previous closing was so time consuming, looking for a time to put on your calendar, changes to dates because of inaccurate or missing documents. And when they ask you to FAX something! Well we all have one of those, RIGHT?

This was by far the simplest closing I have ever done.

Nancy C.

Winston, OR | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

Our Loan Officer, Tony, did a fantastic job of keeping us informed on a regular basis with emails and telephone calls. The refinance process went very quickly and Tony did great at making this a very easy process. It was done efficiently and quickly.
Thank you Tony.

Terrell N.

California | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

I have completed 5-7 refinances in my lifetime and I must say this has been the easiest one. The most important part is that David was honest from day one and did not provide any false promises. In a process such as this one you can appreciate his straight forward attitude. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Gerardo R.

Fresno, CA | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

Any kind of refinance takes a lot of work but with Don Pope, it seems pretty easy. He was constantly making sure everything was in order. Even after knowing that the refinance was closed, he continued calling and availing himself to help in any way. It was a real pleasure working with Don.

Mumtaz A.

Union City, CA | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

What a service from Don!!!!
It was a pleasure to work with Don who was very informative, constantly stayed in touch and provide top of the line service.

Michael W.

Pleasant Hill, CA | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

Don is the consummate professional. He is consistent with his follow through and patient in explaining the refi process, things I needed to do, and follow ups on progress and the loan status. I felt like I was his team member through the whole process. I appreciated that he would follow up with me regularly for documents that needed signing, documents that I needed to provide, and just about everything else that made my refi a stunning success! In less than 30 days, I saved 72k over the life of the loan, reduced my payment by about $200.00 through an interest rate that is over a half point lower! I received so many letters and advertisements on this type of loan from the shady ‘official looking’ letter to the ‘over-promised, lowest rate’ type. Don provided great insight on this and secured a great loan and great rate for me. He’s earned my trust and reference. A perfect 10 out of 10 experience!

Gilberto F.

Riverside, CA | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

I want to give Don Pope and Strive Lending an A+ rating for helping me do a VA refinance on my home. Mr. Pope was honest, professional and very understanding on my refinance process. Everything he told me was true and to the point. This made the process transparent and quick. As a military Veterans I would recommend Strive Lending for financing or re-financing a home. Thank you Don, and Strive Lending. You saved my family several hundred dollars a month, and I sincerely appreciate it. Keep up the good work!

Robert C.

San Diego, CA | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

We just closed a VA refinance loan with Strive Lending at a great interest rate. I must say that this loan did not require mountains of forms and paperwork and was relatively effortless on our part. Strive did a good job in getting it done in 3 weeks and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a new loan.

James P.

Jacksonville, FL | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

Great personal service. All my questions were answered and I was always updated on the status of my loan. Thank you very much!

Gina N.

Great service – Above average loan officer (I’m not a novice in this refinance). Unlike others who have solicited my business in getting a refi, everything Anthony said happened just as he said. No problems throughout this process.

Timo J.

Colorado Springs, CO | Loan Type: VA Purchase Loan

Strive was very helpful and worked for me to get me the best possible rate for the loan which worked best for our family. Thanks again.

Steve and Jo C.

Palm Coast, Florida | Loan Type: VA Streamline Refinance

Todd provided us with excellent customer service. He was particularly patient with all of our questions regarding the VA refinancing process. We were able to reduce our principal loan amount, lower our payment, and we didn’t have to pay a dime at closing. Amazing! You’d think it was too good to be true —- well, this company is for real and they are true blue and all in to help veterans. God bless Strive Lending for all they do to help veterans and their families.

Frank S.
