I am so grateful for the loan expertise of Don Parsons and his team! With Ryan and Vanessa leading me to the finish line of a very difficult loan and sale. I am a Real Estate Veteran and my own home purchase was very stressful for many reasons. Most importantly, Don got me a loan with terms and down payment when the top loan agents I even work with could not. He provided options and creative ways to help me build a solid plan for my home sale and financing. I was introduced to Don when he helped a first time buyer couple I represented 5 years ago get a loan so quickly and swift he got my attention. I never forgot him and his years of experience quickly put into action a loan that I could qualify for, even when those others said it could not be done with the 20% down I was seeking. I am forever grateful for him and his team helping me to get to the finish line and have my dream home for 2020.
Thank you Don for your time and patience, we really appreciate it. You gave us a lot to think about, and I feel that the next few years are not as scary.
Have a wonderful week.

That last email is ‘exactly’ why you’re the most trusted, and reputable in the biz.
Thanks so much for all you have done for me and my family.
Henry & Pandora
My apologies for this late reply, we have just gotten back on the grid! No internet, Wi-Fi or television for five days. We were too busy unloading to really notice…until this afternoon. We are absolutely loving this house. It is just perfect for us. Just what we were hoping for! Thank you for making it possible, making it happen, and everyone moving at lightning speed. You and your team are amazing, and pure delight to engage with. The best! It is great to know that when I need you, you are always there. You have never let me down! Funny thing, I did shred all my old loan docs, from forever ago…you were there at the beginning. My first home and here we are 32 years later!
Wishing you continued success!
All my best to you,
Shellyanne & Jim
Thank you, Thank you 🙂 You are Great! I will spent my lifetime giving out referrals for you, Job Well Done!
Boy & Ann Eddington
You guys are great and I am so grateful for both of you.
Joseph mentioned that you did awesome stuff getting his house…
All in all – you’re spot on with the inquiries I’ll have forward looking. I’m so grateful that you have the insight and mastery that you do. The marketplace and financial union that connects it, is a labyrinth that requires expertise, so no doubt questions will arise, so thank you.
Thank you! This transaction has definitely made me appreciate the professionalism, expertise, and encouragement provided by you as well as Vanessa. Thank you all so much for making this happen for us! We are so happy and will definitely refer you to anyone who asks (and anyone who doesn’t ask too!)
Jennifer & Orlando Vega
Absolutely love Don Parsons. He went above and beyond to get us financed to buy our condo. He worked all New Year’s weekend to get us pre-approved in order to get the purchase of our condo. Thank you Don for your unselfishness during the holiday season. I will definitely recommend Don every chance I get. Thank you and God Bless.
Nina & Robert Mossett
Thank you Don, you are indeed the best! You and your team, and everyone involved totally rocked this thing! Great job everyone!
From my ever grateful heart,
Shellyanne & Jim Helm
Don and Vanessa were outstanding! They held my hand all the way through the process. I couldn’t have chosen a better person to handle this for me!!!
Always the best!
This is the fourth loan we have had. Don is great, honest and reliable. Vanessa is a rock star in her patience and professionalism. Thank you!!!
It is always a pleasure to work with Don & Vanessa. They do what they say when they say and provide guidance throughout the process. Not enough good things to say. Thank you.
Jeff & Shannon Farina
…and another thank you, Vanessa and all your staff for so skillfully guiding us through this process.
Have a great rest of your summer.
Mary and Truedy
Thank you Don. I am so happy you will help my daughter! Thank you, thank you! After she talked with you, she said she felt like it was a family member she was talking with! I am not surprised! So relieved you can give her the information she needs to buy her first home.
Don and Vanessa have worked on several loans with us. The most recent loan they made for us was the one with the toughest conditions and they were communicated to Don up front. He worked diligently to get the needed information together and close the loan in spite of the circumstances. Kudos to both of you for coming through again!!
Steve & Hyerie Dimestico
Really impressed with your care/service on our REFI from DAY 1, and will highly recommend you to our friends/neighbors!
We really appreciate Don Parsons experience, knowledge and professionalism. He helped my husband and myself tremendously when we decided to refinance. We cannot thank him enough!!!!
Jeff & Nancy Gutierrez
I feel soo very blessed and my husband is looking down a happy man! …. I could not be more grateful for the both of you leading me on this unexpected journey….Thank you from the bottom of my ??
Dear Don and Vanessa,
And again thank you for your knowledgeable and sound advice as we navigated through
the loan process with you.
Mike and Irma Black
Don was absolutely amazing to work with! He was very informative every step of the way and has great communication skills. Don even took the time to get to know me as a person as well. I still can’t believe how quickly and efficiently he works. Don was always two steps ahead of me, the realtor, and escrow. Don and his assistant Vanessa went the extra mile to get us to close escrow in 21 days. I highly recommend working with Don!
Amber & Jeremiah Fellows
Yes I have retired. I’ve sold the Fontana home and moved to Seattle. I have just finished my second year here, very happily. My two daughters, husbands, and two grandchildren (9 and 7 years)?? are doing great. I have had an unbelievable two years watching the GK’s grow up day by day instead of twice a year. I have attached a picture of me and my Grandchildren.
I trust you and your family are doing well!
Thanks for all your help and advice over the past 17 years!
Your friend, Bob Merwin
You are the best thank you!! That’s why I didn’t even want to talk to (another lender) cause I don’t trust them like I trust you!! Have a great night!!
Don and his team are outstanding, they have done multiple loans for us and we recommend them to anyone we can. Absolutely top of the line service.
Jason & Kristy Erselius
Good Morning Don and Vanessa,
We are back from our mini vacation to see the update of funding. We went away on Thursday with no fear that everything was on track and taken care of! Thank you for everything, once again!
Scott and Kaylynn
I enjoy working with you and your staff. Everyone has been responsive and professional. Thanks for getting this done so seamlessly!
Lynn & Teresa Dobosy
Don Parsons is my favorite lender. He was recommended by one of my
very best friends in the world who has worked with him on refinances and
purchases for many years. He helped me with a couple of difficult
transactions. My real estate agent (a 30 year veteran) said that she
thought his work was remarkable.
Sarah Davis, attorney
Thank you for what you’ve done so far! This has made the process a lot less scary. 🙂
Shannon & Jason Hagan
Thanks for all of your help! You and Vanessa really make the process easy!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
You are wonderful and we are so grateful for you outstanding effort in our refinance – you are truly amazing,
Don, thank you for your advice and guidance through our situation. We are so thankful for you! Vanessa, you are the best of the best! You make a re-fi fun
Again, our thanks to you both! Until next time
Jim & Shellyanne Helm
Don and Vanessa, you are knowledgeable, patient and friendly and this “human touch” makes a world of difference when navigating through an important transaction like the purchase of a home. Don\’s estimate of closing costs was spot-on and there was no question that we were being treated fairly. We could not be more pleased and we look forward to working with you again.
Dave and Emily Denny
We appreciated the patience and desire to make sure we understood the forms and process. The contacts with Don and Vanessa were very helpful.
Gernot Winkler & Laura Tyson
Thanks for everything you and Vanessa have done for us with the house and refinancing. You guys help make the process understandable and painless. I look forward to working with you guys in the future.
This lender for our buyer has just been terrible. Make me appreciate you guys that much more!
This is a great letter, Don, but I can tell you have bought yourself a lot of time as a guidance counselor, not only for Windy and Chris, but mainly for me, too. I appreciate your comments about timing of escrow, too.
It’s nice to have a lender who looks so deeply into these matters!
T. Coutts (Realtor)
The level of knowledge, communication, and professionalism from our loan officer, Don Parsons, was as high of a rating as you could possibly give. His assistant Vanessa was also just as good. The perfect team really! Anytime we can give a referral, we will.
Mr. Di Somma
Wow…what a feeling!
I think I speak for Mark in thanking you all for the fine work you all did! This process was a long time coming over 4 years ago, but Lord knows why He had us wait until now. Thank God and the amazing team that made it all happen for us!
Terry (Realtor) you truly have been AMAZING and your words and advice kept me so grounded through this emotional roller coaster, and for your patience with us through it all. I admire you and so glad to have an individual like you in our lives. Thank you so much!
Don and Vanessa – thank you for the knowledge and seamless process through such a complex transaction. I know that because of you, our level of anxiety was greatly lessened and the experience was a great one for us!
God bless all of you for being the individuals and amazing team you are!
Thank you, now our journey begins…
The Di Somma’s
I responded to a request from Commerce shortly after closing for a review of my experience, and I meant what I said. It was a pleasure working with you and Vanessa and I’m very glad I had you both on my team to help navigate the process.
– Andrew Domer
Well Don, Andrew said even during the most difficult times you were terrific. I neglected to tell him how stressful this process could be and that it was quite possible things could get delayed. Of course, any delay had nothing to do with you and he was extremely pleased, as is obvious by the survey. Thanks so much for taking care of my baby boy! 😉
– Nancy Domer, Realtor
Working with Don Parsons was a pleasure. As a first-time buyer, the expertise, patience and diligence shown by Don and! Vanessa was invaluable to me. Over many phone calls and emails, they were always knowledgeable, courteous and on top of the process. They helped me navigate the complicated and, at times, stressful process, and did so always with a friendly attitude. At the end of the day, I was able to close on the home I wanted in the time frame I needed. I have no doubt that having Don and Vanessa on my team played a big part in that success.
– Andrew Domer, atty
Thanks, Don, for everything. We really appreciate all your help along the way. We couldn’t do it without you.
– Marc & Heather Violett
Thanks for all your help over the years Don.
I’ve always trusted you and believed you had my best interests at heart.

Thanks for all your hard work. I think you have given my client wise counsel. Thanks for making me look good!
Terry Fisher, Realtor
Don and Vanessa,
I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you both again for all of your efforts in helping us secure our new mortgage. This was a project I really wanted to complete this year and has now put us in a position to start finalizing some of our other financial objectives given that we have three kids that will be headed to college in the years to come. Even though finalizing those financial objectives can require setting some challenging goals, the setting of those goals would not have been possible without first securing/finalizing this new long term mortgage. Again, thank you for helping realize that first critical goal.
In addition, I would also like to thank you for the card and box of cookies you had sent to the house. Please know that they were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone here…
Thanks again and I will be sure to mention our experience to anyone we know who is even remotely thinking about a mortgage.
Take care and best regards,
Thank You to You Both! It has been an Excellent Experience to work with you both.
Thank you one last time for the quick turn around and great service closing the refinance – it was great working with you both.
Dave & Emily Denny
Vic & I want to express our gratitude for making the loan happen. Your professionalism and good nature made what otherwise could have been stressful and negative process, which it was not.
Dan & Vic
I wanted to thank you for all you have done for me and my family. I really appreciated your patience during the chaotic stuff. Thank you and if ever I need more financial help I will certainly be calling you in the future. I wish you all the best.
John & Jackie Moot
We were so thrilled that we were finally able to work with you and successfully refinance. It took a lot of patience and perseverance on all of our parts in this crazy market 🙂
Thank you for hanging in there with us.
I hope you have had a wonderful summer.
Don proved to be a trusted, experienced and very professional loan expert. Worked with me on a very difficult credit situation and delivered beyond my expectations. Will strongly recommend to others!
Victor & Sharon Pinsker

Brian & Jill Edwards
Don, Vanessa, and the whole team are just wonderful! Both with the purchase of our home last year, and our refinance this year, we could not be happier or more appreciative of the wonderful service we have received! From start to finish our loan process was easy and fast, and any questions we had were always answered instantly! Thank you so much for all of your help! We will never go anywhere else for any future loan endeavors!
Kaylynn and Scott Hamm
Don and Vanessa are awesome, helpful and extremely knowledgeable.
Theodore & Cheryl Sutton
Don & Vanessa,
Thank you so very much for all of your help during our transition in selling our home!
We truly appreciate all of your help and your input! This is has been the most stressful time, and not just because of the formalities of selling a home, but also a lot of little things that happened along the way!……
We can’t thank you both enough! You’ve communicated with us more than the escrow officer, or our agents have, which has just made this entire process a sour note with Brad and me… not fun!
Thank you again!!!
Again we appreciate all of your help and your patience!
Brad and Cindy Howard
(Note by Don: we had no part in the sale, just gave them some sage counsel along the way when requested and recommendations they implemented-we do this for our clients even when they do not have a need for a new loan-professional courtesy)
Don has done 3 loans for Dave and I and I trust him implicitly. I hope he can help you refinance. He and his staff are really great to work with……
David & Marguerite Cochran
Responsive, proactive, personal and friendly. Thank you!
Jeff & Kelli Williamson
Thank you for your help and getting this done so quickly.
Jeff & Kelli
Every part of my process was very easy, even my Realtor was impressed with how smoothly things went.
Don & Vanessa,
Thanks for all your help and of course you will be my go-to referral for all things of this nature. 🙂 Your effort and attention to detail was MUCH appreciated.
Thank you Don!
You are the best!!!
Jean Li, Realtor
We felt very well taken care of, and Vanessa and you were great to work with!
Don: Your explanation and analysis is enlightening and valuable. Know that the extra time you spent writing and carefully discussing each point was understood. I appreciate that I was able to follow what you wanted me to know.
I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: “Don has helped me on many occasions from obtaining Real Estate loans to advise on personal financial matters. He is the person I can count on to tell me the real truth about a situation. He also helped me clean up the mess when I made a huge mistake. He is a wonderful asset to have on your side.
Service Category: Financial Advisor
The process was handled professionally and expeditiously. We were not pushed into making a decision but were given all the facts and allowed to make our decision without any pressure.
Gernot Winkler & Laura Tyson
Vanessa Weiss and Don Parsons both provided continuous updates on the loan and funding process. Vanessa’s attention to detail and anticipation of required documents streamlined the process. Additionally, on the days before closing the loan, Vanessa was in constant contact with the escrow company, allowing us to close and fund on time. I have worked with Don and Vanessa on previous occasions and returned to them to complete this loan. I trust them and plan to work with them in the future.
Fredrik & Inga Thorell
What was offered initially was delivered 100%. Continuous personable and professional communication even for me with a hectic schedule was effective and helpful.
Thank you Don. I just have to ask you because I don’t believe what others say. We are yours forever. Ha Ha. Praying always that you and your family and all your staff are blessed and doing well. Thanks for being there as always.
Joe & Nina Marsala
You are a class act – the clients of mine that you work with all love you.
Ron & Barb, CPA’s
Thank you Don, don’t know what we would do without you. God Bless you and take care of you and all your loved ones always. Along with Vanessa and her loved ones, those two little girls are so precious. We have a saying in the family for each other as we leave our homes etc. we say “Angels all around you.” I say “God precious Angels all around you.”
Your best customer Nina and Joe
Thank you again for everything! You were wonderful to work with and we truly appreciate it.

Vanessa, thank you so much for all your follow up and extra efforts in contacting our insurance carrier, coming to our house for loan docs, etc. You have been excellent this entire process, and Candi & I really appreciate that. You’ve made the process a lot less stressful than I remember it being w/ our original loan.
Don, thank you as well for all your expertise, and walking us through our options from the outset. We felt very informed—not only when we were ready to move forward with our loan, but also in the past when you’ve taken the time to go over our situation and there was no business to be had.
Thanks again to both of you. Have a great week!
– Randy & Candi Busch

Don, Thank you very much for all of the info you provided today. I think I learned more about mortgages and loans in one hour than I have in 10-years. I appreciate the straightforward explanation of each step and factor involved. (loan closed)
– Jeff Farina
Linda and I received your note yesterday. Thank you for the kind words.
It was quite a journey, but calm waters ahead now. We know that without you, we never would have made it thru. You should take great pride in what you do even though I know how discouraging it must be sometimes. Keep it up with others as you did for Linda and me. You make survival in these times of uncertainty a lot easier for the rest of us.
May God bless you.

Can’t believe that this reversed mortgage is almost complete!! It will feel so good for all of us! I want to say thank you for all you and Vanessa have done to make this “happen”.
You are great and so very blessed to have Vanessa. She is surely “on top” of things and whenever there is a question or crazy request from the bank, etc. she instantly knows what to do. She also makes the client so relaxed…and not to worry for she has it all in control. I know you treasure having a “gem” like her.

Perfect, thx so much and overall great job to you and don on our re-fi!

Don, once again, my thanks for your help and support in this matter. My daughter is right; you are truly a wonderful, reliable resource.
>>>My father, Stu Lerner, spoke with you recently about the possibility of me buying a house in the San Jose area. He has told me what a reliable resource you have been for he and Jeanne over the years, and that you could provide me with loan pre-approval services.
October 1, 2012
Just want to thank you for notifying us about the change in interest rates. And you and Vanessa made it relatively painless in helping with the paperwork.

Hi, Don. Just a quick note to tell you that you and your staff did an exceptional job on my two recent refinances. Everything went smoothly, better than any other refi I’ve had done.
~ Diana Carmel
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter on behalf of Don Parsons and his associates. It is with genuine enthusiasm that I highly commend Don for his diligence and determination in providing the best financial advice and services to me and my family. Don is an individual full of integrity that I sincerely trust. His commitment to my best interest can be seen in his faithful follow-up and guidance throughout the entire refinance process.
He did an incredible job making me feel like I was the most important client to him prior, during, and after the singing of papers. He is extremely knowledgeable and educated in his field of work while clearly communicating the proper strategies and plans to ensure my financial success. I know who my adviser will be for the rest of my life and highly recommend Don Parsons to anyone who is seeking the best.
Don understands the “little things” that contribute to the big picture. His compassionate gifts and letters we received during the stressful waiting period won over my wife as well. One phone call with Don and you will get a taste of his determination to help you succeed. Most of all I appreciated Don’s ability to relate to me, my needs, and apprehensions at this stage in my life.
As a collegiate volleyball coach I feel it always to be important to know why we train a certain way or why a certain strategy against an opponent will be successful. Many principals, evaluations, and statistics are used. As a result, I have been a part of 5 national championships. I feel the moral and ethical principals, the personal evaluation, and the mature knowledge of the “system” allows Don to know the why in any given circumstance. He is an expert in these key qualities.
Finally, there is a strong sense of humility behind Don’s confidence to provide the best service for you. For the best friendly and professional advice when it comes to you and your family finances, I highly recommend Don Parsons.

I just wanted to send a quick note of appreciation. I attended one of your seminars in October of 2005 on how to use the equity in your home to your advantage. This was just what I needed to “get moving” in the right direction. As you know we have a house and a rental property that we have owned for many years, had quite a bit of equity built up, but wasn’t being utilized to our advantage.
After attending your seminar and reading the book. I have finally discovered the impetus that got me moving in the right direction. I am especially appreciative of your arranging a meeting with you and who is, as we speak, reviewing my financial status and applying all of the basic rules discussed in your book to come up with the financial strategy for my family.
I am looking to further leverage my equity by doing a 1031 exchange on my rental property into a higher end neighborhood. At that point, you have kindly offered to meet with me again to discuss leveraging the additional equity. This is a totally new, and sometimes scary, way of re-thinking all the rules I was taught growing up such as “own your home outright”, so I have needed a slight adjustment period, But so easy to understand and the concept is so simple I’m surprised more people aren’t taking advantage of this great opportunity!
Lianne Matthews, RN, BSN, MBA,CPHQ
I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks. As you recall when we came into your office after going to one of your seminars, we were financially, babes in the woods. Your seminar got us thinking seriously about reexamining our entire financial future. With your help, we have made major strides in our strategies, including changing accountants, financial advisors, and refinancing our home to take advantage of strategic “future” thinking. We are so happy with the steps we have taken and the help you have provided us throughout the process. Your guidance and constant attention has made all of the difference. I hope others will avail themselves of your kindness and expertise to help them understand the potential of their hard work and earnings to plan for the future.
Thank you so very much!
Steve and Marilyn Carroll
This seminar was very enlightening. Don really knows what he is talking about… is able to present it in terms that anyone can understand. We took advantage of his great advice are on our way to a better future and retirement. Thanks Don !!!
From Chris & Donna Henninger
You want to put your financial future in the hands of somebody you trust. Don Parsons has proven himself to be trustworthy in the past, which is why we even considered attending his mortgage seminar. The concepts we heard were clear and logical, but a lot different than anything we had heard before. Don took the time to answer our questions without pressure, and kept us informed through each part of the process. There are very few people whose financial advice we trust. Don Parsons is one of them.
