My realtor, Jason Gravem, who is a fellow Vet, strongly recommended I use Tom Drasler to get my first home loan. He wanted to make sure everything would progress without any hick-ups or surprises, and I would receive the best advice, support and service on getting my VA loan. Being this was my first home purchase, I appreciated that Tom walked me thru the entire process, explaining everything each step of the way, using language I could understand. I was able to buy my first house with NO Down and NO CLOSING COSTS!! I recommend Tom to any Vet who is looking to buy a home as Tom really knows his stuff, especially on how the VA loan process works. Also his team is outstanding!

I’m a retired USMC veteran, and my comrade and realtor recommended Tom to help my wife and I buy our first home utilizing my VA home loan benefit. As first time homebuyers, we had many questions and Tom worked closely with us every step of the way, keeping us informed throughout the process. We highly recommend Tom and plan on referring him to our friends and fellow military comrades. Tom is professional, honest, and offers the lowest rate and fees available.

You will not find a better lender than Tom Drasler. My neighbor referred me to Tom for the purchase of our new home, and Tom was an absolute pleasure to work with. He’s extremely knowledgeable, experienced, professional, and customer-service oriented. Tom had us pre-approved when we listed our home for sale, and handled the coordination between both our sale and purchase flawlessly. We closed on time, in less than 30 days. Tom’s our guy for mortgages and highly recommend him.

just recently sold my condo and purchased a new home, and it was quite the daunting process. However hiring the right professionals is key and Tom was pivotal in the expeditious completion of my concurrent closings. Not only did Tom operate at the highest professionalism and knowledge with my loan, he even came out to the open house for my listing, qualified my buyers on the spot and helped sell my condo over listing price within two days of listing. This was way beyond my expectations and allowed my family and I to purchase the house of our dreams. No matter what time of the day, Tom was always available to answer my questions, address my concerns and provide me with the best rates. I would recommend Tom and his team at Homequest without hesitation. Thank you again Tom and your team for providing us with a smooth homebuying experience.

When we were in the market to buy a home in Los Angeles, a very close friend of the family recommended Tom to help us buy our first home. It just so happens, my friend is a realtor who works closely with Tom, and trusted he would provide us with the best care, service and best loan program for us. Tom and his team were great and they stuck with us for two years before finding the house of our dreams, after having to withdraw from another escrow a year ago because of property condition issues. Tom and his team handled us with kid gloves throughout the process and we closed in less than 30 days. We definitely will refer Tom to our friends and family.
It is not surprising to me that I see Tom has only 5 star reviews. I concur with all the positive things that people said about Tom. We had an excellent experience with Tom and his team. This was our first home purchase and Tom was able to make it easy and stress free for us. He led the whole process very well and was very patient with our simple/hard questions. He was extremely responsive and provided us with all the information I requested in a timely manner. We definitely will refer Tom to our friends and family. THANK you Tom for helping us buy our first home! You are awesome!
Originally, Tom was referred to us by the initial realtor we worked with to help find us our first home. While we ended up using another realtor, we stuck with Tom as our mortgage advisor. Tom is very knowledgeable and honest, and was able to find the loan solution that allowed us to buy a home with only 10% down and not pay mortgage insurance. Tom was always available and accessible throughout the process. We will definitely refer Tom to people we know, and use him in the future as our housing needs change. The process of buying a home is always stressful but he made it very easy, seamless and worry free!
Tom Drasler has now been my mortgage lender for at least three separate home purchases or refinances. Most recently, he assisted us in refinancing our home. He lowered my interest rate even more, saving me several hundred dollars on my monthly payment. This was all done at almost no cost to me! On top of this, Tom is personable, flexible, and just a nice guy! Thanks Tom!
I’ve had the pleasure of working w/Tom for three (3) loans – he offers sound financial options that matched to my short and long term goals. His ability to represent many lenders is truly a benefit to me or any borrower – Tom leverages the best of each lender’s offerings to present factual options from which to choose.
I just wanted to say, thank you once again for all that you did to help me get my house refinanced once again.. I know it was no simple task with the fires and insurance delays. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the way that you “fought” for me to keep the lower rate should I run past my “lock date.” The way you kept in such close contact with Matt, my insurance agent, was incredibly impressive as well. Doing business with you Tom is truly a pleasure. I will surely let my friends and family know what an amazing broker (and person) you are to work with.
Thanks a million!
I worked with Tom for my home loan and it was a very smooth experience! He offered the lowest interest rate of the 4 companies/banks I checked with and he even offered to close the loan early if I wanted to. Tom was in touch with me regularly and always responded to my texts and emails right away. I would highly recommend using Tom to help with your home loan too!
From the first conversation I had with Tom Drasler, he impressed me and I knew I was in good hands. His knowledge is immeasurable, his response times were warp speed, and his ability to strategize in complex circumstances with high intensity timelines, AND find great solutions, was incredibly impressive. In addition, Tom has robust resources to offer many options. The cherry on top is that he is a pleasure to work with. Whatever your situation, home buying brings it stresses. Tom is laser focused and empathetic. I could continue, but for the reader, there is no better option out there for you than Tom Drasler.
We’ve been using Tom and his team’s mortgage services for over five years, most recently with the purchase of our newly built home in the Arista tract in Rancho Mission Viejo. We had some unique financial circumstances, which required Tom’s expertise, which could have been a deal breaker with any other lender. We still closed prior to our target escrow close date. We trust Tom and highly recommend him to anyone buying or refinancing their home.
My husband and I first met Tom in 2015 when we began investigating the process of purchasing our first home. Tom and his realtor partner were hosting an open house in our local vicinity and they were both happy to discuss some of our basic concerns. Tom’s conversation with my husband was so helpful that, though we were not ready at the time to purchase a home, two years later when my husband and I felt more prepared to buy a home, we reached out to Tom again. This time we were ready to make a purchase and Tom and his team were incredible throughout the entire process. Tom was excellent with communication and called us back even during evening hours to accommodate our working schedules. He explained processes patiently and thoroughly and reduced any anxieties that we might have had, which is not an easy task given that both my husband and are prone to worrying. Tom is very knowledgeable and willing to meet individual requests. He presented us with multiple options and explained pros and cons in an accessible manner so my husband and I felt we could make informed decisions catered to our needs. We recommend Tom, without hesitation, to anyone looking to purchase or refinance a home. His team will make the process seem easy.
My family and I worked with Tom on our recent home purchase, which due to part of the escrow company, did not go smoothly at all. Tom and his team worked hard to keep the sale on track to the best of their ability, and went above and beyond to get all involved parties on board to push us to the finish line of buying our home. He checked in with us constantly and made sure we always understood what was going on, or was always available to answer questions or talk out scenarios. We couldn’t have been happier with our experience with Tom.
I was introduced to Tom through a realtor that at the end I had to change but I kept contacting Tom and he was helping me in every step of my purchase and answered all questions that I had ,very patiently . He found the best loan with low interest rate for me and all process was almost painless . Thank you again Tom and your group for your help and patience
