  • James Bonacci and his team helped close the loan for my first out of state investment real estate property purchase. They were all responsive and patiently answered my millions of questions. I am truly thankful for that because it helped my wife and I better understand the loan process and make better decisions. James goes out of his way to make things happen while also providing exceptional customer service. Thank you Jay too for your help making the loan push through to all clear! Thank you Ryan and Leahy Lending! I'm looking for the next property to purchase soon, hope to have the chance to work with them again!

  • Ryan was absolutely terrific to work with. I initially contacted him after doing research on mortgage brokers. He was very attentive to my long-term real estate plan and offered his expert opinion about how better to execute it. During the loan process, he and his team were on top of everything, and Ryan was available to answer all my questions along the way. We had a quick turnaround to close on the property and Ryan and his team made it happen! On the closing day, he called to congratulate me. He is a great person to work with, very professional, and extremely personable.

  • Worked with Ryan at Hometown Lenders to purchase my first home. Ryan was able to secure the best possible rate for us which helped us afford our dream home! In addition to being a fantastic originator, Ryan provided excellent service. Even though he is extremely busy running his business/team, he always made time to answer any questions even if they were not related to our specific situation. I will definitely be doing business with Ryan again! Highly recommend this business!

  • Leahy lending is great to work with. They are very responsive and do their best to get the best rates. Micah in particular has been very helpful and educated me at various steps. Would do business again and highly recommend them.
